Monitors always come with their own stand, so why would you need to rest one on a separate shelf? The answer is that monitors have rather short stands, and unless you like sitting very low at your desk, you will be looking down at your screen, rather then viewing it straight ahead. A simple shelf solve this problem, and has the added benefit of providing you with extra storage space below it. For a sleek and stylish look, go for a glass model.
