    After I figured out the configuration I was SOLD! As a Lifestyle Trainer who specializes in business travelers, this fits the need for people who want to minimize weight but be able to stand anywhere…hotel, plane, coffee shop.
    I am using my StandStand in the state park next to my house while working on my next book. It goes right on the picnic table. Perfect!

    The StandStrand is brilliant for anyone who needs to work from multiple locations. It’s lightweight enough to carry around in your laptop bag, which has made it so much easier to have a ready to go standing setup wherever I travel for work. I appreciate no longer having to search around for a pile of books or something else creative to raise up my laptop. Thank you for making this.

    This product made a great gift to my sister, who’s always on the move when working and likes to maintain an active lifestyle. She loves it!

    I LOVE my StandStand. I am a Pentagon reporter, and our press room is a bit cramped; the Stand Stand really helps my back after hours of sitting. Every reporter who sees it asks about it; some borrow it, and another Pentagon reporter saw it and actually bought my larger size one off of me (it was too tall for me) when I ordered a shorter one. Thank you for an innovative and easy design!

    It does the job perfectly, I quite enjoy the design & it’s so compact.

    I am very grateful for my StandStand – for the height, and for the fact that, because of the cutout, etc., it is not a dominant, solid visual feature of my small apartment.

    I have a regular desktop computer I sit at – but also a legacy laptop I need to get to fairly often. Having the StandStand helps satisfy my need to get up and move around, to stand more often.

    I’m so happy with my purchase. It was a gift to myself for getting a new job, and I’m so glad I did it! No joke – I use to use overturned recycling bins as my standing desk. This is much classier. Nice and sturdy and so lightweight!

    Love my stand stand. I was looking for a stand up desk, but all conventional ones were super expensive. I actually had been putting my labtop in my book case so I could stand and work, but that limited my ability to use a second monitor. The standstand, even though its meant to be portable I just use it at my desk. since it is so light and portable though, I can stand up and work when I want, and then easily set the stand stand aside when I want to sit down.

    Great product, I recommend it to everyone.

    I love my STANDSTAND! I have a more permanent adjustable desk at my office, but sometimes I have to travel for work and also work at home in the evening and the STANDSTAND is perfect for those times. It’s light and easy to carry, well-made, and easy to set-up and take-down. I highly recommend it.

    StandStand is wonderful and solves a problem I have had with a sore back after sitting for hours at my computer. I use it in concert with a kneeling chair, 45 minutes kneeling, followed by 45 minutes standing. It’s so beneficial that I am considering replacing my office desktop to another laptop so I can recreate this system at my office.

    This has been a big help for the back and neck issues I get when I work on my laptop a lot. It works well when I’m sitting or standing, and is easily portable, stable, and quick to assemble.

    Great product. Fits in my laptop bag perfectly so easy to take around on the move.

    I used to sit for 8, 10 or even 12 hours a day and the back pain and impact on my health was enormous. After trying it out for 6 months now I’ve found that my back pain is no more, my arms and legs are actually stronger (thanks to increased gravity force on my bones) – making even my weight training easier. And I’ve found my concentration and energy have also improved (on top of eating better).

    The StandStand is so simple yet so effective. It really does take only 2-3 seconds to assemble it. I love how easy it is to be able to stand and work anywhere, any time. Being sized for the height of most desks it almost always works and that’s good enough for me. Several fellow developers asked me where I got it and I was proud to tell them about StandStand.

    After years of wanting a standing desk but never finding a flexible and affordable option, Stand Stand has solved all my problems. It is light, inexpensive, and easy to set up and take down. Personally I like to go back and forth between sitting and standing, and simply adding a 14″ Stand Stand for my laptop and a 9″ Stand Stand for my keyboard to my traditional desk has allowed me to finally work the way I want to. I have only positive things to say.

    It works great! I spend at least 1/2 my working day standing now and I’m really enjoying it. It really helps to stand after lunch and keeps me more alert!

    Love this stand! It is at once sturdy and highly portable. I am an academic who travels often, and I can take this stand along with me. The quality is excellent, considering the very reasonable cost. A huge improvement over my improvised stands made from boxes, books, and the occasional suitcase!

    I am really enjoying my StandStand. I do not use a laptop at work–I am a psychologist with a private practice, so I have to sit for therapy sessions. I like being able to write my notes and do other paperwork at the StandStand between sessions, as well as when I have a longer window of time. Also I am then already standing up and can take calls or check email too. It’s hard to remember to stand, and the desk helps me stay on my feet. I also work at three different locations each week, so the portability is great. I am a very satisfied customer and highly recommend having one. Plus I like the design–it looks attractive and is very light but also sturdy. I’m hooked.

    I’ve really enjoyed using my StandStand and am still working it into my routine both at home and in the office. It offers a great solution to a stand up desk, is practical, and well designed. The stickies on the bottom came off easily on mine after a few uses, but it is quite solid otherwise. I’ve recommended it to friends who have wanted a similar solution. I especially appreciate the request for feedback and the care at all levels in sharing this product.

    I am writing this on my StandStand, which I have been using daily at work for the last month or so.

    I purchased the StandStand to see if I would like a permanent standing desk at work and it has been here the whole time, so I am not taking advantage of its portability. It is comfortable to use and surprisingly well balanced.

    Still, I can see room for improvement. Most importantly, it does not give me an option to use a mouse since it is too small; as a result, I have to use the laptop trackpad (I use a MacBook Pro), which is not suitable for long term use. I would happily get a standstand which is several inches wider just so I could use the mouse.

    I think the build quality is very good and the stand is sturdy enough to use, but it does wobble in the axial direction (i.e., the direction a turntable turns). This is not a major problem, but the laptop screen moves much more than I wish it would when I type. Fixing this would require a more sturdy base.

    Finally – and this is very minor indeed – I am not a big fan of your logo which you have printed on the sticker. It looks sort of evil. I wouldn’t put the sticker on anything I own.

    All in all, though, I think you have a good product which fills a niche. If you came out with a Stand Stand XL (or something) which is six inches wider and less wobbly I would definitely be interested.

    It’s a wonderful laptop stand and has gotten me up out of my chair for at least 6 hours a day. Love it!

    I love this invention! It saves my back because it periodically gives me relief from sitting all day, every day for 8-10 hours a day. Thanks for making a great lightweight product — and my aching back thanks you too!

    Works perfectly. Light, portable, easy to put together, has given me a standing desk for a fraction of the price of a large one. Really great product – definitely worth the price.

    I love my StandStand! It’s easy to put together and is super light to bring with me wherever. It’s the perfect height for me and is beautiful. Standing while doing work is so much more pleasant now–my back hurts less and I feel more alert as a result of standing more rather than sitting. It’s also much cheaper than other standing desks and is cooler looking. I love it!

    Love it. I have back issues and need to stand most of the day. I am always praising my standstand and have encouraged others to get one. Now if I can get my monitor located as well I will be extremely happy (are you working on that solution?)

    Also great when presenting. Helps to command the room. I love the portability. I often travel from room to room and building to building. Thank you

    I LOVE the StandStand. My writing coach recommended it to me and I couldn’t be happier with the design, functionality and cost! I am starting my “third” career as a freelance writer/editor/researcher, but I get so antsy sitting at my desk that it’s hard for me to stay at it, but the StandStand alleviates that restlessness. Plus, we all know now how bad it is to sit for too long each day, so I’m getting an added bonus! I’ve already recommended it to friends!

    I am a resident physician in my umpteenth year of education and studying for yet another licensing exam. The irony that I’m always promoting physical activity for my patients and then sitting for days on end to stay focused is not lost on me. The StandStand keeps me here where my mind needs to be while still stimulating the nerves and circulation to help keep me reasonably healthy (and awake). I’d recommend it to any of my patients or my colleagues.

    Enjoy using it anywhere. Asked about it most times and I use every opportunity to lament and recommend. Hope to see some sort of mouse platform.

    I LOVE my standstand! I have a mobile office where I bike to multiple offices a day for the nonprofit I work for. Once at my destination it hurt my back to sit but I had no option before the standstand. Now I can put my standstand in my backpack and take it anywhere!

    Love it! So easy to use and it looks great. Definitely feels like it is high quality materials and well made. It makes any surface in the house into a standing desk which is great for me as the light moves around in my home. The ergonomics of it are probably not as good as one that has a separate keyboard tray or something like that, but for the price, ease of use and mobility it can’t be beat. I got this because I knew with something more complicated I just wasn’t going to use it. Great buy!

    This is a great product. As an IT consultant who carries my office in my backpack the StandStand provided a way to have a standup desk where ever I am working. The light weight, strength and simplicity of the product make it an ideal solution for a mobile worker. I often answer questions from curious coworkers and demonstrate how easy it is to setup and use. Everyone is amazed by the strength and utility of the stand. I now work standing up about 75% of the time and it had made a tremendous difference in my well being. I highly recommend this product.

    I bought my StandStand after I started worrying about the long hours I was sitting everyday because of my job. I work from home and didn’t have the space or money to buy an entirely new standing desk. StandStand was all I needed really! It’s easy to assemble and disassemble, doesn’t take up too much space, and does exactly what I need it to. I may just stick with it for the next few years. Definitely recommend!

    So far I love it! Sitting all day at a computer can make me unfocused and antsy. I found that using a StandStand I can stay focused and think more clearly. It’s surprisingly sturdy for what it is and small enough where I can bring it anywhere. I did look for other variations of this sort of product online before I bought it but I personally think that using wood instead of plastic or other materials was a good idea for this.

    I have been searching for an easy, affordable way to get me up and out of my office chair for a while and this is it. I’m very happy with StandStand. It has an appealing design, goes together and packs up easily, is light, and didn’t require a redesign of my office. Super addition to my workday — thank you!

    I am terrible at shopping for presents for my ad man husband. He seems to have everything and he’s very particular about what he likes! This year I went with gadgets and found StandStand was the perfect flagship to my bundle gift! He has been talking about trying a standing desk and since he has everything for on the go (even a portable scanner, etc.) the idea that it was portable was ideal! He loves the concept and the brilliant sleek sustainable design! Ordering was simple and the customer service was outstanding! Highly recommend StandStand for the holidays for that special someone! Major win! Love StandStand!

    14 inch with a lower shelf to put an external keyboard would be dandy. Great screen height with the 14 but hands could be lower for ergonomic comfort & health.

    • :

      Thanks, Paula–I couldn’t agree more! It’s good to have a raised screen and an external keyboard at a lower level to achieve the best ergonomics for neck and wrist. StandStand was designed for laptops, and we don’t have a way of adding a keyboard platform while maintaining stability and portability, but we are currently working on a desktop version with two levels to raise the screen while keeping the keyboard down. In the meantime, we recommend alternating between using StandStand to get the health benefits of standing and also using it to raise a laptop screen while sitting (while using an external keyboard) to get a good balance of different ergonomic benefits.

    Great product. It’s light enough that you don’t even feel it in your bag, sets up in moments, and saves my butt in coffee shops. I also use it when sitting on the floor at home to work.

    The biggest downside is the tippability of it. I bought the tallest one, and with my heavy 16″ dell you have to position it just right otherwise the littlest bump will send it backwards. This is far less of an issue with my MacBook Air.

    Another adjustment, as others have said, is that us mouse loving folks have to readjust to the track pad. I don’t consider this a flaw in the product, so much as a needed mental shift in myself.

    • :

      Thanks for the feedback, Tom! We’ve just launched a mouse-friendly version with a wider platform if you want to check it out. Regarding stability, that’s a really important issue when using something as valuable as your computer. For PCs with a heavy battery or screen, it’s important to keep the center of weight over the center of the large V formed by the base. In many cases, this means your computer will extend past the edge of the top platform. It seems counter-intuitive, but it is actually very stable. Give it a try and let me know! –Luke

    It’s terrific. I spent an entire year in California writing outside instead of in my windowless office. That’s something I couldn’t have done without StandStand. Now I carry it everywhere and recommend it to everyone. Plus, it looks really, really good.
