  • Take a look at that round plastic part in the vertical section of the stand, where the cables are designed to pass through. That's actually a connector between the top and bottom halves of the stand, so the stand is only as strong as that little piece of plastic. It's not a problem for a laptop, but I think a display would bend and possibly break it.

    I suppose you could weigh your display and see if it's anywhere close to the the 5.6 lb. weight of a 15" MacBook Pro.

    One other consideration is that the top of this stand is just a big hollow ring, so you would probably have to lay something flat on top to provide a surface for the display to rest on.
