What experts liked
It's very well made, has tremendous flexibility in terms of layout, and has the advantage of electric motors, so raising and lowering it is effortless.
- BestReviews
The Adjusta tray is spacious, and easily adjusts in height with a lever. It can be raised 7" above the desk, to compensate for the desk's low maximum height.
- Work While Walking
The Elevate II is a really well-designed, solid device that is remarkably efficient at making a long day of desk work much more physically comfortable.

What experts didn't like
Extremely large - the top surface weighs 150 pounds, and the keyboard section is another 47 pounds.
- BestReviews
Can't easily use a mouse when the keyboard tray is set at an angle. Tilt-and-Go wheels cause a tip-over risk.
- Work While Walking
The downside is a lack of locking mechanism, which means on a wooden floor like mine, if you're propped up against your desk it may move a little.
