Customer Reviews

Good Product
Quickstand Lite is a good, versatile product that is as advertised. Raises and lowers with ease for both sitting and standing. This a great option for someone that does not have the capability to order a full desk but wants the option to sit or stand. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 due to time it takes to put together and while the stand does stay in its position while raised, it does have a slight wobble as your hands type.

Good Sit Stand but double bar needs to be beefed up
I like the product, I think it is a great sit/stand product and I get a lot of comments on it. However typing and using the mouse shakes the unit given the dual monitors and the flimsy dual monitor mount. I have big 18lbs monitors and will have to upgrade to lighter units. Also the ball and socket adjustments are great but I had to take them apart and then step on them with my full weight to crack them into moving. Maybe a good idea to QA/QC the movement in the factory.

Functional design
Compared to other products, its does not take over the entire desk, and provides a functional work space when needed.

My only complaint is that the keyboard tray bounces slightly when typing in the raised position.
