Fancierstudio Riser Desk

Overview

Review Summary

One notable advantage of this particular riser is a bigger keyboard surface. Thanks to the wings at its sides, the users can freely use a mouse, which isn’t always the case with other converters. An ergonomic cut out takes away from the precious surface area, however, so be sure to invest in a smaller keyboard without a wrist rest.

Rating

Expert Rating
1.5
Positives Comes fully assembled. Accommodates users over 6’.
Negatives Shakes when fully raised. Non-adjustable keyboard tray extends beyond the frame taking up real estate from the user and can be too high when sitting and too low when standing for certain users. Also, some users report locking mechanism issues.

Bottom Line

1.5
Fancierstudio RD-01 is for someone who’s looking for a budget desk riser. Like many other products in the same price category, this desk converter can’t boast an adjustable keyboard tray or great stability. Although its tray offers more room than the competitor desk risers, it hangs over the edge of the table, taking up additional real estate.

Fancierstudio Riser Desk Standing Desk RD-01 is a slightly pricier product in its category of budget desk risers. However, at almost $200, it offers all the same features and design flaws as the cheaper units. Suspect quality, lack of stability, and a non-adjustable keyboard tray are among the main issues with this product.

While you can enjoy a wider work surface on this desk, the keyboard tray will take away some precious real estate because, like its progenitor Varidesk, it extends forward when raised. Additionally, some users find it too high in a sitting position and too low in a standing position.

One notable advantage of this particular riser is a bigger keyboard surface. Thanks to the wings at its sides, the users can freely use a mouse, which isn’t always the case with other converters. An ergonomic cut out takes away from the precious surface area, however, so be sure to invest in a smaller keyboard without a wrist rest.

Another generic imported converter that appeals to a budget market. Considerable quality and performance issues put it in the same line as High Supply and AirRise Pro.

Users report lack of stability on the unit, concerns over a small keyboard tray, and considerable wobble in a fully extended position.
