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.
Wallaroo Sit Stand Workstation Sneak Preview
The Wallaroo is a new sit stand workstation from Ergo Desktop, makers of the Kangaroo, which had previously been our experts' choice in the category. It's a portmanteau of "Wallaby" and "Kangaroo", and – in addition to being an actual animal – is also a sort of middle step between the fully-adjustable Kangaroo and the more feature-bare Wallaby. We are currently evaluating the Wallaroo in our testing lab. While a more comprehensive review of the Wallaroo will be out soon, here's what we can tell you now about this new workstation.
ErgoDesktop Wallaby Desktop Riser Review
The Wallaby is Ergo Desktop's budget-class alternative to their successful Kangaroo sit stand workstation. It's based on the same design, sporting the same free-standing steel base, impressive weight capacity, and peerless stability, but without the gas-assisted monitor lift mechanism that made the Kangaroo such an ergonomic hit. Despite this, the Wallaby still features a robust set of capabilities that make it a great value for any office.
