If you are working from home or indeed your office most of us tend to sit down all the time and for me especially of late it is a bit cumbersome as I am based at home more so than before, One thing I have noticed though when out at meetings there is a huge increase in what we call standstations here in many office environments and they are a great idea for active for and indeed non active people who sometimes are stood up at their normal dest bend over typing away, I am guilty of that situation but now I can sit or stand at my own leisure with this Desk convertor which comes set up out of the box and it is a godsend.. It will save your back in the long run.

I tend to be working from two laptops or two areas in my new house but will be building an office outside soon where this will lay permanent taking the work and blogging out of the house for good as it is best to keep them apart for many reasons, peace and quiet being one and space is another.

The ease of use in this product is what sells it for me, there is no setup it is ready to go out of the box and requires lifting a handle either side to adjust to your specific height or you can leave it down if you require to do so,some setups I have seen have much more effort to put in and requires adjustments in several places where this is one movement and it is at ease with no noise or interruption to your setup. This is a win..

The unit is in one piece and is heavy so you will need to take that into mind and get your measurements right,this arrived on a small pallet and is heavy so you may need assistance to place it where you plan to finally leave it but once it is down it is going nowhere and has rubber feet each corner to stop it from moving along with its weight.

I also got a mat to enhance the comfort level when standing and this really helps too especially if you are barefooted or in socks for example,even in trainers/shoes it adds to the comfort level when using the desk.

The is a cut out at the rear to let cables fall down behind and there is holes in the middle to drop any other cables you might have to tidy away or if you have a tower stand it can be attached via the holes in the centre,On the front there is a decent cut out too and is comfortable to work on despite the material used and this again makes life easy as you can still rest your arms as normal but be more connected with your equipment at the same time.

Build quality is top notch here and I cant see why this would not last a lifetime unless you had an accident or dropped it when moving I still cant see it breaking this is built to last and it is also built to make life better,give you a choice to sit or stand and not interrupt anything in the process.
