So you want to try a standing desk, but you’re not ready to commit to it for eight hours a day...what do you do? You buy one of these discounted monitor risers for all-time low prices.
These risers arrives fully assembled, and sit on top of your existing desk. Put your monitor(s) on the top shelf, your keyboard and mouse on the bottom, and use their integrated spring systems to raise the entire setup from a sitting to standing position within seconds. I own a very similar product from Varidesk (which was more expensive, by the way), and I absolutely love it.
The 30" Lorel, which we’ve posted before, is large enough for one sizable monitor, while the new 35" FlexiSpot can accommodate two, and features a different design lifts your screen straight up, rather than up and slightly out.
I can tell you from experience that you’ll definitely want a good anti-fatigue mat for standing. This one has great reviews, but whatever you choose, make sure it’s at least 3/4" thick.
