When folded, the Nexstand is about 1” longer than the Roost, and slightly thicker. This means the Roost is more compact than the Nexstand, and for me that is a bonus - the extra inch that I save in my bag means I can stuff an extra pair of socks in that space!
When expanded though, the Nexstand’s extra inch of length makes a big difference in that it appears considerably larger than the Roost. It suggests the Nextstand can hold a thicker or wider laptop than the Roost, but the Roost is still very capable despite its smaller size. The Nexstand comes with extra clips for thinner laptops.
Both come with a soft carry pouch. Some may not consider this a big deal, but its good to carry the stand in a pouch to avoid it scratching other devices or getting caught on cables. I personally love the subtle logo of the Roost bag, and really dislike the blatant branding of the Nexstand bag.
The laptop is held in place on the stand by the front clamps. It’s an ingenious design and well executed that prevents the laptop from slipping off even when you tilt the stand. However, as the front clamps are the point of contact with the laptop, I wanted to make sure that the clamp would not scratch my laptop. Here the Roost provides the better quality material, using rubber front padding whereas the Nexstand’s clamp is purely plastic. That would seem to make the Roost the more favorable option, but then I notice that the Roost’s plastic back has a middle plastic ridge sticking out (see red arrow on image 4) - perhaps the result of the manufacturing process or a quality control issue?. I don’t think it will scratch the laptop but it’s irritating, especially compared to the Nexstand’s smooth surface. Also it should be noted that the Nexstand clamp looks to be capable of holding thicker laptops than the Roost.
REAR BACK RESTS
The back of your laptop sits on the rear back rests. This is the secondary point of contact between the stand and the laptop. Just like the front clamps, I want to make sure nothing scratches my laptop. With the Roost, the back rest is covered with a long rubber pad that will gently support the laptop, whereas the Nexstand has skimped here with just a small pad that isn’t even the full width of the bar. You can of course stick some electrical tape there if you want reassurance but the Roost clearly wins here.
The front legs of the stand touch the table/surface and holds the laptop weight. To prevent the stand slipping around, the Roost has rubber padding that works excellently to keep the stand stable. The Nexstand is just smooth plastic and whilst the stand does remain stable when pushed, it can slide more freely on the table surface. Roost wins here.
Both the Roost and Nexstand are excellent, solidly built stands that will hold your laptop steady. I don’t want to advocate one above the other and have personally kept both for now. The Nexstand’s price represents excellent value and there’s nothing really negative about its quality, so if price is important to you, or you have a really large thick laptop, go with the Nexstand. The Roost provides extra luxuries such as rubber paddings and a more compact frame, but for the price it’s slightly more difficult to justify - if the price point doesn’t bother you then the Roost certainly represents a more “upgraded” model.
This stand is designed and manufactured in the USA so it is great to support businesses in the homeland. The laptop opens and locks in three separate settings which allow adjustment of laptop height in any situation once can be in. It is extremely stable and the laptop is kind of locked into place once it is set on the stand. Just be careful when moving the stand around and hold it from the base. The portability of the stand is incredible: with its ability to fold compactly and little to no weight, it is great for students like myself who are constantly lugging around a backpack.
I had slight neck discomfort when I started using this stand but that went away after a week or so of use. I think this is because our necks are so used to be in the flexed position that the muscles used for extension need to be retrained. My neck feels so much better now and it almost feels like I have more mental clarity when my head is a neutral position while using this stand. That being said, you will definitely want to purchase a mouse and a keyboard to use with this stand (or any other stand for that matter). Typing on the laptop while on the stand is not a good position for the wrist and I think prolonged use in that matter may cause carpal tunnel syndrome. That's why a keyboard is necessary and it is a very minor sacrifice to make for the health of one's neck.
I DID NOT receive this product at a discount in exchange for a review. I bought it on Kickstarter, waited patiently for a year, and then finally received it and fell in love with this product. All my colleagues have seen this stand and also proceeded to buy it. I know this stand is pricy but it is entirely worth it. This product is truly a revolution for students. I have provided a video below for your convenience.
The Roost stand seemed pricey for what it is, but it's worth every penny. It opens and closes easily and smoothly, and takes up almost no space in my bag. Since I'm taller, I haven't had any need to use it any lower level than the highest, but that feature seems to work fine too. I was also a little concerned, that it seemed to require the computer to be open really far at the higher settings. My laptop is open close to its max, but it's not strained, and the screen is angled just right. I have a 2012 MacBook Pro and a 2015 MacBook Air and both work great, and fit well -- despite very different thicknesses.
I'd recommend this to anyone who spends serious time on a laptop. Don't wait until you have a back problem to start working on your posture!
