Perhaps due to the simple design of this premium quality device this attractive monitor stand from ATUMTEK is well priced at £19.99. Made from coated aluminium it should give stylish support to any desktop monitor as well as laptops or other items up to 16Kg in weight.
In the box is the laptop stand itself with the self-assembly kit and a short and rather unneeded User Guide. The mash platform is made from aeronautical grade aluminium with an anodic oxidation processed surface, the legs from steel, with the look and feel like a high-end piece of kit. The base is well weighted and even when the stand is at full elevation it feels stable and secure.
Assembly is easy enough and takes less than five minutes. No tools are needed, although I used my own screwdriver rather than the Allen key provided. You need to just screw the two halves of the legs together and then screw them to the platform. It is best to select which of the three levels you need – 10, 12 or 14 cm – and then tighten all the screws and the height adjustment knobs to get maximum stability. Once this is done the stand feels steady as a rock. This is not the sort of stand designed for use on the go, but rather for permanent positioning in the home or office.
This is not an expensive item but has a build quality and premier feel that the belies the budget price.This is a nice piece of kit and will be a fine addition to your office.
