The Kangaroo Pro Junior provides a big enough surface for a standard keyboard with a little room left over to the side for a mouse. If you've got a bulkier keyboard, or you prefer a little bit bigger workspace, go for the kangaroo pro. I would NOT recommend the available detachable side work surfaces, I stuck mine in a closet after a few minutes of trying it out. They slope downward and don't latch securely. That particular component is poorly engineered in my opinion.
One gripe with this company, and I guess it's a small one but it does strike me as a bad way of doing business, is that they bill the full amount to your card when you place the order and then don't ship for several weeks. Now if this were some sort of custom product, I could understand that, but this thing doesn't even come in more than one color. If you don't have any inventory and need those weeks to catch up to your orders, fine, but bill when you ship like every other reputable retailer out there. Doing it this way gives a sense of unease to the customer (does to me at least), like the business is skating on thin ice.
I'd still recommend the product though, with high marks for functionality and flexibility.
I was a little nervous if I could be able to stand all day but I love this desk. It was incredibly easy to set up, it's very well made, and I love standing. I actually feel like I have more energy throughout the day.
Two of the features I particularly like are the fact that it sits on my already existing desk, so I didn't have to rearrange everything else in my office to accommodate it and that it is very easy to move from a standing to sitting position. Certain projects I have would be too cumbersome to do while standing and this makes it easy to transition between the two positions.
Overall, I would highly recommend this product.
There are a couple drawbacks: 1) The monitor tilt adjustment is not well designed. Basically, all the weight of the monitor is hanging off the tilt adjustment bolt, so the monitor always wants to flop down to the most downward-titling position. It's essentially impossible to tighten the knob hard enough to keep the monitor from tilting down, so I keep the allen wrench they supplied for assembly on my desk to tighten it. The design really should have had a counterweight to balance the monitor's weight and keep net zero torque on the tilt adjustment bolt, instead of the monitor's entire weight torquing it.
2) I find the desk surface is too deep for my tastes. I.e., it pushes the monitor too far away when in the sitting position. It's only a couple inches, so no big deal, but I wish it wasn't as deep.
My only concern is that, when in the standing position, the monitor is too close to my face. I have a widescreen monitor, so I find myself turning or holding my head to the side more frequently in order to get the whole view on my screen. One of the reasons I purchased this desk was to help alleviate neck strain, so it has been a challenge to figure out a new system. I would prefer to have my monitor 4-6 inches further away from my face.
Some (minor) complaints:
- A bit of wobbling when typing, but acceptable
- When sitting, monitor is a bit high, even on lowest setting. Naturally, this depends on your desk height. Mine is around 30".
- I wish I didn't have to adjust the monitor height each time (the keyboard height automatically goes to last setting).
- Set up was a bit challenging (almost 1 hour).
- Not the most natural/inviting converting from standing to sitting (or vice versa).
Despite these complaints, I do not regret my decision, and I think a standing desk is good for my health and providing a boost of energy.
