"the diversity stand" is designed for standing only and for presentations. I goofed in reading the description. I wanted a computer cart used while sitting.It is very difficult to put together. The shelf for the CPU is not deep enough to accommodate my cpu and lower the keyboard tray. I had to turn it sideways and that's odd.On the positive side it is rather sturdy. The "Box" at the lower part of the stand is a metal bookshelf as far as I can tell. The hardware came well packaged.
It's very handy and terrific. I roll it around the house for use. Am not used to working standing and this allows me to leave my main desk (a Varidesk is there), go to the porch and still be ready to work.
This desk was easy to put together and is sturdy. The height is great for standing at my laptop (I'm 5'11"). I removed the side rails on the desktop to allow room for my mouse and mouse pad. The adjustable desktop has enough tilt options that I can have either a larger flat surface or a place to put put papers I'm working from. It can tilt low enough to not be in the way. Without a CPU, I use the lower shelf for printer papers and the upper shelf for my printer. This is a versatile piece that I wish I had bought sooner. My brain stays focused longer and better when I'm standing too.
The Diversity Stand is going to work out very well for us. It is very sturdy and is going to work out very well for our very tall user. BUT there really is no place to operate a mouse - and what little area there is is slanted, so not really practical. We set up a very small TV stand-like table to the side for a mouse area.
I've assembled a lot of furniture, some pieces were easy, some were a bit harder. This I would rate really hard and the putting on of the wrong stickers for some of the parts made for a difficult assembly.
All in all, I am very happy with the piece and it will serve us very well.
How accurate was the sizing? Fine.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Fine.
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Three of the parts had the same part label on them - which meant two were wrong per the instruction booklet. Otherwise the product was in good shape.
I love working standing up, and it took some time to decide on just the right standing desk for me, my situation, and my budget. This desk definitely meets all my needs -- it's the proper height (it's adjustable, but you wouldn't want to adjust the height after you've finished the assembly), it's portable (I like to work in different rooms of my house, and I can wheel this desk from room to room easily), and for storage (just the right amount of shelf space for the few reference books and supplies I need to have with me.
It wasn't difficult to put this desk together, but it might be hard to assemble for someone who isn't as handy as I am.
How accurate was the sizing? Completely.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great product. The "wood" bits are particle board with crummy plastic veneer made to look like wood, but the metal is very sturdy -- and, for the price, I didn't expect solid mahogany!
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes.
I would have given this 5 stars but adjusting this requires unscrewing 4 knobs and physically lifting it, a little difficult. It has great storage, great size and love the wheels. I work at home and am tired of sitting--this fits the bill but would like to have an easier way to adjust this that I could use for both sitting and standing with either a crank or touch of button of some type. Well worth the price! Was a little difficult to assemble--my husband is strong but parts didn't go together very easily---I heard a lot of noise from him coming from the garage!
