I would have thought that this was a great unit if I hadn't just bought a Kantek platform a week earlier. It's still a good unit for the average user but the Kantek gets my vote -- and here's why: Both units are made of a durable black plastic. The Kantek unit is longer and wider and its height is more adjustable because of the different sized blocks provided for the legs. In addition the Kantek can be raised to a platform height of 6.5 inches while the Amazon Basics unit maxes out at 4.875 inches. The increased length., width, and height of the Kantek platform provides slightly more storage under the platform and gives the user more flexibility in what to put there.
The Kantek unit also has inserts in the back of the platform to allow the cords/cables used to hook up a monitor or TV to be neatly organized. On the positive side, the Amazon Basics unit is sturdier because of how the legs are constructed -- in long single units rather than individual blocks like the Kantek. The last item is the price difference. The Amazon Basics unit wins the price war at $19.99 versus the Kantek being offered at $22.99. To me the small price advantage of the Amazon Basics platform is negated by the wider footprint, more flexible (and maximum) height adjustment, and cable management offered by the Kantek platform. It all depends on what your individual needs are. You really can't go wrong with either choice.
