Great value for money,
This review is from: Kensington Solemate Plus Footrest Adjustable Locking Tilts 0-15 Degrees Platform W450xD350mm Ref 56146 (Electronics)
I am so happy with this purchase! I'm not very tall and have back problems, and so posture at my desk has always been an issue. My desk is too high, but if I raise my chair to improve the ergonomics of my arm position, my legs tend to dangle a bit, which affects my lower back. Most of the footrests I've seen are not adjustable, so they wouldn't really solve the problem properly, or they have been rather cheap and not well-made. THIS footrest, however, is very well-made and easily adjusts both in terms of height and angle, so it can be truly tailored to anyone's needs. Others have commented about the smell, which I have noticed as well - it comes from the rubber anti-slop surface. Often things I've bought that had rubber components have the same odour, but I've definitely had worse (a suction pad holder I bought was so smelly that we had to keep it in the garage and it took several years to go away)! Perhaps people with a particularly sensitive sense of smell would be disturbed by it, but for me, it isn't bad enough to make me want to give up the comfort it's providing! Well worth the money!
