Bottom Line

The Ziplift HD is everything we loved about the Ziplift+ and then some. A bigger work surface, higher lift capacity and a third grommet hole make this a nice upgrade for those with the space. It features the same smooth gas-strut lift mechanism with infinite height adjustment, as well as a tilting keyboard tray, so finding your optimal ergonomic position is a breeze.

Desk riser ZipLift+ HD


ZipLift+ HD 42": Standard and Corner Versions Available

It’s no secret that we loved the iMovR Ziplift. The Ziplift+ HD is iMovR’s upgraded version, with all of the features we loved about the original, plus a larger 42” work surface and an upgraded weight capacity. The HD, or heavy duty, offers a superior 45 lb lift capacity for those who wish to use two 27” monitors and their laptop at once. Thanks to the generous amount of surface space, there is room for your documents and coffee as well. A third grommet hole opens up additional mounting options so you can customize your work surface just the way you like.

It carries over several winning features of the original Ziplift. The same 20” height range accommodates users from 5’0 all the way up to 6’7”. It also preserves its predecessor’s ergonomically adjustable keyboard tray with up to -15° tilt, saving your wrists from strain and beating out competitors like Varidesk. The silent lift mechanism allows for infinite stops at any point up to to max height, with silky-smooth adjustment made possible by a gas-strut lift system. We’d caution users to remember, though, that the counterbalance is only 15 lbs, so while the HD supports much more weight than that, it will become increasingly difficult to lift as you pass the 15 lbs threshold.

Like the original, the Ziplift+ HD is backed by a 5-year warranty and a generous 100 day return window. There’s no assembly required, meaning that unlike cheap competitors, you don’t have to worry about a confusing assembly and the instability that could potentially result from a mistake.

To sum it up, the Ziplift+ HD is a larger version of the Ziplift with a higher weight capacity. It doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but it brings the same suite executive suite of features to a larger scale. For that reason, the HD is a great choice for anyone with the room to accommodate it, at home or at the office.

ZipLift+ Corner 42" Now Available

The newest member of the ZipLift family is the ZipLift+ Corner 42", featuring a larger work surface akin to the HD. Like its brethren, it excels in terms of stability, ease of use, and build-quality, with a shape designed to save space for corner desk users.

Office workers in cubicles are often strapped for space, and the key benefit of corner standing desk converters is to make use of space that would otherwise be underutilized, or not used at all. Corner desks, when utilized in an ergonomically efficient way, can be a great space saving solution for workers. However, the market for corner converters is somewhat niche, and while a Varidesk corner converter is available, it simply does not function as smoothly as the gas-strut based ZipLift (with other problems including a non-tilting keyboard tray and limited monitor arm compatibility). Companies looking to convert their corner desks to standing desks without A) having to purchase full desks and B) having to settle for an inferior product have found their answer.

Aside from its corner optimized shape, the ZipLift+ Corner has a lot in common with the HD. They both feature three grommet holes, increasing your options for positioning grommet mounted peripherals. While most of popular monitor arms are available as clamp mounts these days, it's still nice to have the added availability. Another feature we love about the Corner (and the HD) is that it only requires one handle to lift. One handle systems are simply easier to use, as you only need to devote one hand when lifting or lowering the converter—but you still retain the option to use both of your hands if you need to. This is a subtle difference, but it's a feature you'll be glad to have if you go between sitting and standing multiple times throughout the day. The one downside is that the Corner version does not sport the increased weight capacity of the HD. However, with the ample room provided by the 42" work surface, you can easily make a two monitor configuration work, especially with newer monitors becoming increasingly thin and light.
