The stand works quite well for what I needed. However, the rubber extensions to raise it higher are quite hard to keep on the legs if you need to lift it for anything. My monitor sets on top of the laptop and when I travel I have to take the laptop out. The rubber extensions keep falling off.
The over all product is nice looking, and deffinitely allows more storage space. Although it is not really made to well for an older computer monitor. I thought I read it could hold up to 40lbs, but the box upon arrival said holds up to 20lbs. The plastic/rubber risers included for raising the height are a little generic, very easily fall out. So I feel priced a little high, but serves its purpose, if you have a flat screen monitor, it will work out great.
