    Nice Monitor Stand

    I like the style and sturdiness of this monitor stand. I use it as part of a docking station setup for my laptop. I have a smaller 13.3 inch ultra portable laptop, so I had to put a few magazines under the stand so that my laptop fit under the stand with the sides above the legs of the stand. This had to be done in order to be able to plug the appropriate cables into the side of the laptop (otherwise, the ports would be blocked by the monitor stand legs since the smaller laptop fit almost flush between the legs). For larger laptops, this should not be a problem as they would rest on the legs of the stand (and not between them). Outside of having to use magazines to raise my smaller laptop above the legs of the stand, I have no issues with this product.

    Keeps laptop cool

    After dealing with a hot keyboard base of my laptop and listening to the constant whirring of the cooling fans which are on the bottom of the laptop, which does't make sense to me if the laptop is sitting on a surface, I purchased this item as a pedestal or base on which to place my laptop. It seems to have done the trick with keeping the heat to a minimum and the fans don't nearly run as frequently. It takes some getting used to as my keyboard is now raised about 4 inches higher than the surface on which it normally sat. Wouldn't recommend if you actually sit your laptop on a soft surface. Could fit on my lap, but maybe not for all. This riser is sturdy and cheaper than the devices designed with additional cooling fans that require yet another plug-in. Note my laptop is 5 years old with a number keypad built in, so it is larger than many of the newer slim models.

    I purchased it for work, and my co-worker just purchased one for himself after seeing mine. I love it my Dell is an all in one type computer which doesn't take up the whole shelf. So I have room for my phone, calculator, and post its notes. I also slide my keyboard and mouse underneath for a very neat put together work space at my desk. It's sturdy, never wobbly, I think it is very well made, and thought out. Also if I were using it for a laptop, it has decorative cut outs on shelf for heat to pass, no fan needed. I cannot recall if that was mentioned in the description. Very pleased, and will never not have one. Jaxx

    Perfect fit for digital receiver to sit under TV

    Posted
    cabletie

    My cable provider (not mentioning names, but their name reminds me of a full "range" of colors), is now going full digital. So now we have to rent (imagine that) their digital receivers which are about the same size as a DVR box (13" W x 8.25" D), but it doesn't record. When you have that extra smaller TV in the kitchen or bedroom, a digital receiver like that takes up precious space. And please, do not sit the TV base directly on top of receiver. Unit gets warm and placing TV on top of receiver may impair air movement needed to keep the unit cool. Anyways, this Insignia Monitor Riser is a perfect fit for that digital receiver to fit nicely underneath the shelf of where the monitor sits on.

    I originally purchased this to use to elevate my monitor and to give me more room on my desk. I found that I really was more comfortable without it as the monitor was adjustable. But I've been using it for my laptop when I am sitting in an armchair or on the sofa. It raises it to a more comfortable typing level and keeps the heat of the laptop off my legs when I am sitting and typing for a long time. I turn it in either direction, according to where I am sitting. Sometimes I use it for extra desk space for a larger project when I really want to spread out.

    The stand is sturdy, well built, and a black color which plays well with most computer decor. It is a good height. High enough to put things under that would normally crowd my coffee table where I keeps my monitors (yes, multiple monitors and I have one of these great stands for each monitor). The price is maybe not as low as one might expect, but I will pay extra for quality built products. The lets of the stand also have attached pads which keep them from sliding around or scratching the surface they are on. Highly recommended if you need something like this.

    I bought this for a completely unrelated issue than raising the height of my laptop. I bought it to place OVER the keyboard of my laptop when it's open so my very precocious cat does not walk on , or lay down on, my keyboard. I've tried so many homemade things but none worked. This monitor riser is a little big but it works. She sometimes lays down on top of it but it's strong so does not interfere with the keyboard.

    I'd checked around town for monitor riser. I didn't want a plastic one, as they tended to be weak and not provide as much space for placing things under as this design. There are several other examples of this exact design from various manufacturers, but most are some assembly required (unlike this unit), and all were to some degree, more flimsy than this on. None were significantly cheaper, either, though a couple are more expensive. Maybe you get what you pay for, which is a bit more than I really wanted to for a very tiny bit of furniture, but this model is the sweet spot.

    Great Space Saver!

    I have a medium size desk, but have a 32 inch monitor connected to my desktop and PS4. I do a lot of photo editing & gaming & hated having the PS4 on the slide out keyboard tray & having my keyboard & mouse pushed off center from my monitor. This solved my problem by allowing me to put my PS4 under my monitor without the monitor resting on the PS4. Now I can have my mouse & keyboard directly in front of the monitor, while being able to access the PS4 still. Win-win-win. Definitely worth the money.

    This was a little pricey for a simple thing, but it was obviously solid and quality made out of relatively thick steel, so of course, I had to have it. It's for a monitor, but I use it under my massive laptop to give me more space on my cluttered desk and it has been a great addition. It's got holes for ventilation so it keeps my laptop running cooler. Typing can be a little challenging, but otherwise, great.

    Missing rubber foot

    It is a riser, the legs are wide enough apart to allow for some decent storage underneath. One of the rubber grips underneath was missing and the store only had on stock exactly what I needed, so I had to purchase it. I decided to pull all of the rubber grips out just to even it, and they came out a little too easy for my liking. Once it's on your desk and you have your monitor on it, the rubber feet shouldn't be too much of a concern, but just be aware.

    I use a recliner while I play video games on my PC, and honestly this sounds stupid at first but I tilt my monitor forward so I can lay back and play games, but this riser made it soooo much easier to see being that it's up higher. Not bad for the price, and it's REALLY sturdy as well. It also reduced a lot of clutter on my desk and makes it so my speakers aren't directly in front of it. I also use the riser to hold some of my pens for easy access. Overall, very useful and very reliable.

    I bought this for my 17.3" laptop which I have sitting on a computer desk. I hate using it because the keyboard is itsy bitsy compared to the space it can have but I love the screen size. I bought a wireless mouse and keyboard and use this riser to hold my laptop and I just saved mysef from buying a whole new computer. Great height and can easlity fit my laptop which I have alot of issues finding something that can hold it since it is so large.

    I needed to raise my HP 8620 printer off my table to create some more space for me to work. I thought that this stand would be too small for my large printer knowing that it was made for monitors. It turned out to be the perfect size for me. It's a sturdy piece of equipment that can easily hold up my printer and help me claim some real estate on my desk.

    Bought to place my second monitor on top of and slide my work laptop under...sturdy and looks great. Only negative I have is the legs get in the way of my laptop cables that stick out on the sides so I simply put a small book under it to raise my laptop up. Just don't want my laptop plug/ports having all the weight on them while its suspended up on the stands legs....but again a small book works great.

    My back has been hurting lately so I have been standing by the kitchen counter and using my laptop to do my computer work. I needed something to elevate my laptop and a Best Buys associate recommended this . So glad he did! It raises my laptop up just enough and I bought a wireless keyboard that fits under the riser when not in use. I should mention I am only 5'4" so someone taller may not find fits their needs.

    I travel a great deal for work...and in a couple of places I actually have offices with limited desk space. This stand is ideal for my Lenovo YOGA! I travel with a foam pad the same size as my YOGA (I just flip the keyboard back and set it on the foam pad), a keyboard and my mouse! The stand gives me much needed space to put my keyboard and mouse. I LOVE it!!!

    This stand allowed me to raise my non-height adjustable monitor to a more comfortable viewing angle. It provides a stable base and, depending on monitor base size, a little extra space on the riser to put extra stuff off the desktop. It's also large underneath to slide under a laptop (Macbook Pro) with a cooling pad with plenty of wiggle room.

    We have a tight desk area at home and have a separate printer and scanner. We wanted to buy something to save on desk space so we purchased this to use as a printer stand and it works perfectly! We're able to set our printer on top and our scanner directly below it which saves a ton of space on our desk. The metal seems to be very sturdy and is holding up quite well. Very happy with purchase and great price.

    Good monitor risers

    We purchased 2. They replaced the "homemade" books and small box set-up. Allows for papers or other supplies to be tucked under. Sturdy. One thing that would improve the riser is if it had an adjustment on the height since they are just a hair to short for my sitting height. Still a very good product.
