Call it a desktop workstation, a sit-stand workstation, or a desktop riser, a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. Ah, well, let’s step back from that a bit and just say that some of these products are on the rose spectrum while others may be closer to skunk cabbage. As always, caveat emptor, and that’s where we come in and lab test these units to find out what they’re really made of.
iMovR ZipLift+ Sit-Stand Converter Review
Extremely stable - rock steady. Tremendous height range adjustability, with infinite stops. Built-in adjustable-angle keyboard tray separates it from 95% of desktop risers on the market. The built-in grommet hole makes it easy to add any monitor arm to achieve an ergonomically proper LCD height.
iMovR ZipLift+HD Stand Up Desk Converter Review
Extremely stable; extremely ergonomic. Height range adjustability allows for infinite stops and accommodates users up to 6'7". Comes with a built-in adjustable-angle keyboard tray unlike most desk risers on the market. Three built-in grommet holes make it easy to add any monitor arm to achieve an ergonomically proper monitor height.
Autonomous SmartDesk Mini Review
Autonomous probably figured their millennial audience will be wowed by the cool factor of electric, and won’t likely research how much more assembly effort and success risk the Mini might entail. Our advice? Stick to the more ergonomic, proven models already out there, and recognize the electric gimmick for what it is in the case of the Autonomous SmartDesk Mini.
Flexispot Standing Desk Converter Review
The Flexispot Desktop Workstation is actually a series of four standing desk converters made by Chinese office fitness manufacturer Loctek—the M1 (27"), M2 (35"), M3 (47") and M4 (41" Corner Cut). These converters offer extraordinary stability, work surface space, and value for the dollar.
Kangaroo Sit Stand Workstation Review
The Kangaroo sit stand workstation can’t be beat for convenience. A wide range of style and price options round out this product line. It's easy to set up, has precision monitor and worksurface adjustment, features a variety of optional upgrades, and is the most stable workstation we've reviewed. We’d fully recommend going down under if you’re after a sit stand workstation.
