This stand (the 36") works perfectly for placing your laptop + 1 monitor, or 2 standalone monitors, with laptop on the desk beside it.
It is well constructed, I believe it should last a long time.
It is very easy to set up and the spring levers make it easy to move up and down. You can stop the mechanism at any height by releasing the levers.
It feels natural and comfortable to stand behind this desk, exactly what I was looking for.
There is a little movement when you stand and type, i.e it does not feel perfectly solid, but it would bother probably only the most particular. For those people I'd recommend the full desk that moves up and down.
Caution: Do measure the desk on which this varidesk has to fit. It is quite large!
Also, note that when it lifts up, the desk moves toward you probably two thirds of its width, forcing you to stand back from your desk, so make sure have enough space behind you in your office.
Great and durable product
