I have a corner desk with a lot of space but my monitor isn't adjustable, so my eyes were parallel with the top of the monitor. I wanted something to be able to bring the monitor up and look decent on the desk. This stand fits that bill perfectly, it is a simple no frills stand with no parts that can break easily and lots of space to fit your monitor and even put stuff underneath. I use it on the middle setting and find that it is just right. The monitor shown in the picture is a Samsung U28D590D ‑ 28"
