What experts liked
In terms of build-quality, the X-Elite is a mixed bag. The very first thing we noticed was that it arrived fully assembled and instantly ready to use. It’s also a lightweight product at only 27 lbs, meaning it’s easy to move from surface to surface.

Simple to use: The mechanism for lowering and raising the platform is as easy as can be.

What experts didn't like
The problem with the X-Elite is that its surface doesn’t quite lock into place at any position other than its highest and lowest settings—anything in between has a noticeable “springiness” to it when you apply any sort of pressure. As you lean on your keyboard, you move the surface down significantly.

Height Range – The 7-16 adjustable standing height will do the job for most folks, but the 2.5 retracted height can be uncomfortable.
