This is a nice piece of equipment. I initially had some reservations about it because I saw a review that said it only had three positions. I haven't counted them but it actually has about 15 positions to raise and lower the surface. The surface is white, attractive and hard and should be very durable. The surface raises to a maximum of 15-3/4 in. and lowers to 1-1/4 inches. It was that low profile that really sold me on the unit. The total width of the surface is 31-1/4 in. but about 6 in. of that surface is used by the latches. The surface is 21-1/4 in. deep. The only feature that would improve the unit would be a non-skid material added to the base and it tends to slide a little too easily. Overall, a very nice unit for raising and lowering your work surface. We wife has her iMac, keyboard, mouse, coaster, external DVD drive, backup hard drive, Bible, pen tray and miscellaneous papers there with still some room to spare.

This Vivo adjustable desk is exactly what I was looking for. I was a bit cautious because the price was so great - I figured it couldn't be as well-made as the expensive brand. So glad I bought it! It is a solidly built desk with a sturdy platform and base, and perfect for my duel monitor (it holds up to 22 lbs). It's easy to lift and lower, and flattens out very nicely in it's lowest position for seated work (photos included). The surface can hold a typical keyboard and mouse, but not a large mouse pad. Either way, it's a comfortable work station for me, so the benefits outweigh that one minor issue. I highly recommend this desk if you're looking for a well-made standing/adjustable desk and don't want to pay a fortune for it.

I sit at a desk and work for eight hours a day and many times it makes for a very long day. I started using a box to put my keyboard on to stand and it did help break up the fatigue a little but I couldn’t adjust positions on a box and it looked goofy. I had also read about the importance Of not sitting for long periods day after day. When I discovered this desktopper and Saw the positive reviews I thought I’d give it a whirl. Boy am I glad I did. What a game changer! I’ve had it just a couple weeks and I feel more energetic and it really helps break up the day. At first it was hard to pull the handles to adjust it up and down but as the company promised when I called, it has gotten easier with more use. I definitely highly recommend this product. And the customer service department was very helpful too. The only negative thing I could think of was that I’ve heard it’s expensive if you want to send it back, but I can’t imagine ever being without mine again. 🙂

Exactly as advertised? Well that's refreshing, isn't it? I did a lot of research to find a standing desk solution that would deliver the benefit without the $175+ price tag of the VariDesk. So this Vivo one seems to be fitting the bill. I'm on Day 3 of using it & will come back with an update if anything significant changes.

On Day 1, I loved it. It's easy to lift & lower to find the exact height to keep my arms/shoulders in proper position. It's wide enough to fit my laptop, notebook/papers & charging cell phone. I stood for 6 hours total (broken up by a 30-minute lunch break) & decided I loved this thing. The only lesson I learned was that I need to wear supportive tennis shoes if I'm going to stand that long (I work at home & usually don't wear shoes around the house).

On Day 2, I stood for a couple of hours, then my legs started to get a little tired. I was mentally so used to standing to work from the prior day that I momentarily forgot that I could sit down. Duh! So I lowered the desk (easily) and kept working sitting down and varied standing/sitting the rest of the day.

Today, on Day 3, it's much like Day 2. For some reason I'm not as energized to stand all day (like I was on Day 1). My lower back is a little achey after standing a couple hours and my legs are a little tingly. I think this has absolutely nothing to do with the desk; however, it does point out to me the importance of the easy-to-lift-and-lower functionality. So if you (like another reviewer) get one that isn't easy to lift/lower, get in contact with the company. The fact that they reply to 1-star & 2-star ratings is one reason I chose to buy from them compared to others selling what looks to be this exact desk at equal or lesser cost.

I will say that with the height of my stationary desk (leg room underneath) & the max raise of my adjustable chair, my arms are at an above-90 degree angle when the adjustable desk is in its fully-lowered position which sort of puts a strain on my arms after a while. But, optimist that I am, this just reminds me that perhaps it's time to stand up again. All in all, I like the desk. Based on their responses to low-star ratings, this company seems to stand behind their product & fixes problems when there is a defect or damage. I'm actually considering buying 1 or 2 more for my teenagers. I just wish I had thought of this during the summer when they were spending more time on their computers. But I guess they sit most of the day in school too though, so standing for a couple hours for afternoon/evening computering will be good for them!

I couldn't be happier I found this solution! This is a really nice and inexpensive solution for a standing desk that isn't so permanent. Very delighted I found this!!

Experience / Research:
At work: I've use Varidesks. Very nice, but big. Great to throw monitors on top of. Quick adjustments.
At home: I have two standings desks (one manual crank - my first, and a fancier one with memory controls - by Stand Desk).

My Use Case:
I bought this because I needed the ability to have a standing desk that was semi-portable and sturdier than the really portable ones (think the platform with two legs, one on each side, that bend and lack in multiple parts). I'm using this at my girlfriend's place, which I may be standing at the dining room table, or next to her bed (with this sitting on 4 wooden chargers [plates] acting as a "platform" for the wobbly bed).

I'm computing with a 15" Macbook Retina Pro and 13" iPad Pro (second monitor using Duet). The platform comfortable covers both and leaves extra room on the desk for me to "breath" and not feel so confined.

Build Quality:
Very solid build. We'll see how it handles being moved around a lot, but I don't think I'll have issues with this desk.

I ordered this for my partner who has had to work at home. She finds it a good change from constantly sitting, and is use to having a stand up desk at her work place as well. So this was a great alternative.
The product is sturdy, which leads to her only complaint. It is a bit heavy for her to raise/lower when loaded, and it's not convenient to unload every time you want to make the change. With her work place desk, a finger is all that's needed to lift the desk(must be counter balanced). Saying that however for a temporary,(we hope) fix, this does nicely and recommend it for those who need to stand from time to time.

I looked at a huge range of products and this one fit what I was looking for. I didn't need the keyboard or mouse pullout tray. I didn't need infinite levels of height adjustments. For the price, I took a chance on this lower end VIVO. I lucked out with this single top version as it fit my desk perfectly and the second height setting worked for me when I was working on my work laptop.
It's smooth moving it up and a little tough pushing it down. It is definitely not portable but that's not really important for me.

We were so disappointed in the quality of this product. At first we thought it was awesome until the cracks showed up on both lift handles. I wrote to the manufacturer through the Amazon sight and have heard nothing from anyone. Truly a disappointing experience.
