Eureka Ergonomic: Innovation in Design and Production

Of all the Chinese-owned office ergonomics companies we’ve encountered, Eureka Ergonomic is one of the most impressive in both its advanced product design and robotic manufacturing abilities. Staffed with hundreds of engineers and acre upon acre of automated assembly lines the company has been able to crank out a stunning number of standing desks, sit-stand converter, gaming desks and ergonomic accessories as compared to most any other vendor in our industry. They are prolific it creating high quality, yet very affordable products for just about every niche you can think of.

In the last couple of years, they’ve speedily produced a high-performing series of standing desk converters, now at nine models and counting. Their converters span a range of prices and each step function offers a new feature set. This model, the 28″ Corner, is in the middle tier of pricing, coming in at $299. You can read about all their models in our round-up of Eureka standing desk converters.

Robust Z-Lift (Single Arm) Mechanism for Small Corner Spaces

The Eureka 28” Corner Standing Desk Converter is a Z-Lift Single Arm, meaning its lift mechanism raises in a Z-shape and it has one lifting arm rather than two. It resembles the Flexispot Compact Series, but it is designed to fit in corner areas; its base and its work surface are sculpted so that the whole unit fits nicely into the corner of an L-shaped desktop.

Eureka 28
A Z-Lift (Single Lift) frame gives the Eureka 28″ Corner Standing Desk Converter a sturdy, compact feel.

Specifically, the Eureka 28” Corner is designed to fit into small corner areas. Saving space with its single lifting arm and compact work surfaces, this unit is the smallest corner unit (dimensionally) that we’ve reviewed. The next closest in terms of desktop width is a tie between three units (Flexispot Alcove M7C, Versadesk Power Pro Corner, and Varidesk Cube Corner 36), all of which measure in at 36”. The Eureka 28” Corner fills a niche spot in the market for users who need a corner unit to fit in a tight space.

Notice that the Eureka Corner lifts up and towards the back of your desk, in contrast to most Z-Lifts, which lift up and towards the front of your desk. If you have a smaller 24″-wide desk, you may have to scoot the unit forward to allow enough clearance to lift without hitting the wall behind your desk.

As compared to just a year or two ago the number of corner standing desk converters has exploded; so much so that we needed to create a separate round-up review just for the top-rated corner standing desk converters. This 28″ unit from Eureka is definitely one of our favorites.

Monitor Arm Compatible: Accommodates Single or Dual Monitors

Due to its smaller size, if you’re placing your monitor directly on top of your work surface without a monitor arm, the Eureka Corner is better used with a single monitor up to about 27” wide. However, we suggest using an ergonomic monitor arm to keep your monitor(s) in an appropriate position for comfortable and healthy viewing. With a monitor arm, you can support dual monitors up to about about 24″ or so.

There is about 1 3/4″ of space between the back edge of the work surface and the frame for applying edge-clamp monitor arms. This means monitor arm models with smaller edge clamps are your best bet. Larger models like iMovR Tempo monitor arms, and even Eureka’s own brand, won’t fit without rubbing against the frame. If you do purchase one of these monitor arms, you’re not totally out of luck; if you move the arm off-center to the curved part of the work surface, you won’t have any issue with the monitor arm obstructing the lifting process.

Sculpted Keyboard Tray

For those who prefer to use dual screens vertically, the keyboard tray is surprisingly deep for accommodating most laptops. There is also a convenient device holder on the back part of the keyboard tray for mobile phones or tablets, and accessible cable slots for your keyboard and mouse cords.

Keep in mind the keyboard tray is very compact, measuring only 28″ wide, so you may need to slide your keyboard to the left to create enough space for your mouse. Smaller keyboards are ideal; larger ones with a num pad may be impractical to use on such a small tray, so definitely measure in advance if you’re not sure. While the Eureka 28 has been highly popular for its ability to fit into smaller spaces the one mild knock it gets in user reviews is that some people find the tray too narrow for their setup and wind up having to switch to a smaller keyboard to make it work.

Another small knock on the keyboard tray is that in the sitting position it hovers about a half-inch above the desktop surface rather than sitting flush on top of the desk. These keyboard tray issues are the main reason that the Eureka 28 garners only a 4-star average user review. If you can live with these minor limitations this is an otherwise superbly designed unit.

By adding a monitor arm, not only do you achieve better screen viewing ergonomics, but you make it possible to hold dual monitors on the iMovR+Eureka 28″ Corner.

Silent Lift, Infinite Stop Positions

The Eureka Corner’s lift mechanism is our favorite style for any Z-Lift converter, a silent Bowden cable braking system and a gas-assisted lift with infinite height stops inside its range. You don’t have to worry about bothering your coworkers shifting from sitting to standing because its operation is ultra-quiet. You can pinpoint your exact ergonomic standing position with infinite stops, which distinguishes it from outdated models like the Varidesks, which are limited to a preset number of height stops (and make loud clanging and latching noises).

Eureka 28
With infinite stops within its height range, the Eureka Corner 28″ avoids loud ‘latching’ noises at separate height intervals (like you’ll hear on Varidesks and other models). It also provides for more precise height adjustment.

Two Finishes: Black or Cherry

You can choose a classic black finish or an elegant cherry finish. We prefer the cherry version for its ability to hide fingerprints much better than the flat black, but not completely so. Not a big deal but some of the other converters in this price range do sport nicer surfaces that hide the smudges and dull the glare a little better.

No Assembly Required

It comes pre-assembled out of the box and has a very clean, elegant look. Do be aware that although this is a compact unit for small spaces, it is not a light product. Two people should lift it out of the box and position it on your desktop. It weighs 51 lbs., which is nearly 10 lbs. heavier than the iMovR ZipLift+ Corner 42”. And this is only a 28” model. Like most of the other Eureka converters the manufacturers put a lot more steel in their designs than anyone else, which is why they are known for their tank-like durability and reliability.

The packaging alone weighs 13 lbs, and is highly engineered to make sure your unit doesn’t get bashed up by UPS or FedEx getting to you. We’ve seen some tragic results when standing desk manufacturers go a bit too light on their packaging to save a few bucks. Eureka is more dedicated to creating a great customer experience, which starts when the unit arrives at your door, so kudos to them for doing it right.

The Takeaway

Overall, the Eureka 28” Corner is the best one we’ve seen designed for spaces this small. It comes with a 3-year warranty but our review staff would say that it’s likely to last far longer than most other units we’ve tested with longer warranties, so the three-year term should not be deemed as a reflection on the product’s ruggedness.
