Brittle Plastic, Arrived Broken
on 13 September 2012
I ordered this item thinking I was getting a real bargain as it is so much cheaper than the alternatives on this site or others. However, the item has really poor retail packaging which isn't built to survive the postal service. When my item arrived the outter box appeared to be intact, but inside the cheap brittle plastic of the stand had smashed in two. Looking at the item I certainly wouldn't order another. You get what you pay for.
The underside of the stand has a turntable which allows you to spin your laptop around when its being used which I did not realise when I ordered, however the quality of the plastic is very poor and I wouldn't risk the stand collapsing by moving it while the laptop is in place. The adjustable heights are very limited and only allow the laptop to be raised off the desk for cooling, not much use for changing your working height for ergonomic reasons.
All in all I would reccomend spending that bit more money on a decent stand, after all, you wouldn't have purchased an inferior laptop to save a mere £6-7 so why cheap out on this stand?
