Coming Soon: The Missing Adapter for the HP XW, CW, and CWA Series Monitors!
January 1st, 2016
If you’re reading this post, you’ve probably read about the optional VESA Mount Kit from your user manual, or scoured the internet for the mysterious HP CVB100 VESA Mount Adapter Kit (L6V75AA). If you’ve looked long enough, you’ll realize that it doesn’t exist. Yes, very frustrating, we know. And it’s not the first time! HP did the same thing with a earlier 2*11x series as well – they reference a mounting kit in the manual, but it doesn’t exist.
However, the good news is that we’ll be releasing a compatible bracket soon. If you want to sign up to be notified when it comes out, just visit the product page and enter your information on the signup form.
During product development, however, we did make some interesting discoveries:
Even though the mounting system for all the compatible models seems identical, there is a slight difference on the inside of the monitor. On some, the plastic tabs that lock the base in place are large – in fact, too large! It’s nearly impossible to get the base out after you install it. After destroying a few in frustration, we learned that you can pry the locking mechanism open (gently) and then remove the base.
On others, the tabs are much smaller. So small, in fact, that the button doesn’t lock into place during installation. This isn’t an issue – the bracket is quite tight, and our adapter includes a screw to secure it to the back of the monitor – but it would be nice to have that satisfying “click” during installation!
We’ve completed our testing and prototyping, and the bracket is now in the manufacturing stage. When it’s ready it will be available for sale on Amazon (USA) and eBay. A few months later, it will be available on Amazon in Canada and Europe as well.
