I love, love, love my Roost! Yes, there are cheaper knockoffs, but I think it's important to support the geniuses that actually invented it. I essentially live on the road - move to a new city every 3-4 months - and I have very few things with me. This stand (and my wireless keyboard and mouse) are worth their weight in gold and have helped me with neck pain. I'm using it right now.

The Roost has three different height levels you can set it to, and if I have a tall enough work surface (think kitchen breakfast bar height), I have an instant standing desk. I bought it right from the company on their website last November on Black Friday and they had a small discount going.

Thanks Stacy,

I think this one is in my top 3 right now! Would you mind sharing which keyboard & mouse you use too?

I have a garbage keyboard and mouse 😭 Made worse by the fact that I flung my mouse across the tile floor a couple months ago and it's never been right since. Trying to hold out buying a replacement until I'm back in the US and I don't have to pay the crazy electronics tariffs here in Mexico.
This is my keyboard. I chose this because of how slim it is and I needed bluetooth. It's a pretty bad keyboard, but not the worst. And this is my garbage mouse. I picked this one again because of how slim it is and I needed bluetooth. It was never very good, but since its grand fling it is actually dangerous (a single click regularly double-clicks). One day I'm going to inadvertently click on something I really shouldn't!
