The handles feel a bit clunky and make a loud clicking sound when they are pressed. The springs squeak quite often when making adjustments and there is a loud snapping sound when the locks engage after adjusting the unit.

The unit is relatively heavy. You may need more than one person to move it.

From The Manufacturer

Here at VARIDESK, we know you want to feel great at work. That’s why we created the ProPlus series to keep you comfortable, productive, and energized. We know you need flexible solutions that are durable enough for the long haul, and the ProPlus series is up for the challenge. This simple, two-tier design has been engineered to give you a spacious upper display area for your laptop, monitor, or even dual-monitor setup, while the lower deck has plenty of room for a full-sized keyboard and mouse. Because VARIDESK products come fully-assembled and ready to go right out of the box, transforming your workspace won’t disrupt your work. There are no complicated instructions and no tools required – simply place your VARIDESK on your desk or table, and you’re ready to work. Adjusting your VARIDESK is simple, too. Our spring-loaded boost mechanism and dual handle design makes it super easy to lift, lower, and adjust to any of the 11 height settings. The ProPlus 36 can hold up to 35lbs and still raise easily, because of our patented spring-assisted rowing lift mechanism. It ships fully assembled, so there's no tools or downtime between you and your active workspace.
