Good question. Let me measure it. By my measurement, The base of the outside of the monitor is 3.5" off the table and the total height from the table to the top of the monitor is 15" - 16" - bit I have my monitor tilted back a bit. I have really enjoyed this monitor since I got it.
The height of the monitor when attached to the stand is 16" - between the desktop and the lower edge of the monitor is 2.75". The overall width of the monitor from edge to edge is 21 3/8".... (my monitor is just barely tilted)
Interesting that 3 people get totally different measurements.... (I really like this monitor, too!)
