A premium stand to elevate your space.
Nearly 12 months ago, I found myself, like so many others, working from home. I always thought it would be a temporary measure until health conditions improved, but here we are almost a year later and I’m still working from home. I’m actually happy with the home office area I’ve built for myself. I have a full-size desk and a dedicated room that can be isolated from the rest of the house. I know I’m a lot more fortunate than some people though and believe me, I’ve had my share of working from the kitchen table. During those times, I’ve found that making sure you have the right accessories to optimize your workspace truly helps make the space more manageable. One such product that can really help is a laptop stand like the LENTION L5 Adjustable Height Laptop Stand Desk Riser.
The LENTION L5 Adjustable Height Laptop Stand Desk Riser is a fully adjustable stand that features multiple angles between 2 and 13 inches high. The stand is made with aluminum and is 3mm thick. The premium alloy used to make the stand ensures stability and heat dissipation. Anti-slip X-type rubber pads are incorporated into the design to help secure the laptop while it’s on the stand. The stand is ‘heavy-duty’ and can hold up to 5kg. The stand measures 11.8 x 10.4 x 2.1 inches and weighs 2.98 pounds. It’s compatible with many types of laptops including 12” MacBook, 13” MacBook Air, 13” MacBook Pro, Microsoft Surface, Dell XPS, HP, ASUS, 15” MacBook Pro, and nearly every 11-15 inch laptop in the market. The LENTION L5 Adjustable Height Laptop Stand Desk Riser is available in two colors — space gray and silver.
The stand comes in a simple package. The box is white and the front shoes a wire-frame image of the product while the LENTION logo and the name of the product are printed in the top left corner. The back of the box has very limited information. When you open the box you will find the stand wrapped in a plastic bag and some packaging foam rests in-between its legs. There is no assembly required and once you remove the packaging material, you can start using it. I actually found this rather refreshing because there are some stands I’ve used recently that require adding silicone feet to it or attaching a head to its base. I liked that the only assembly step was to unfold it.
As a stand, it seems very sturdy and once it’s been placed into a specific angle, it doesn’t budge. I actually found it rather difficult to maneuver the stand between the different angles. It could just be my stand, but it’s very stiff out of the box. I would imagine the more I use it, the more it will loosen up, but I don’t want to see it get too loose because then it won’t hold itself up. I have a 13-inch MacBook Pro and it slides onto the stand quite easily. I did happen to notice though that the notch on the front of the stand doesn’t sit low enough for me to reach the notch on the front of the laptop in order to open the lid. I have to move the laptop away from the stand’s front edge or lift it up in order to open the computer.
I also noticed that the laptop riser’s color isn’t the exact same Space Gray as the Apple Laptop. It’s a shade closer to silver and tinted slightly bluer than the MacBook Pro. It’s not a dealbreaker to me, but it is enough to notice the color shift. I normally use my laptop in closed clamshell mode, but testing out the LENTION L5 Adjustable Height Laptop Stand Desk Riser is making me rethink my set-up a little bit. I like keeping my desktop clean and allowing for as much open space as I can, but I also like having a two-monitor set-up.
Using a stand like this can be very beneficial especially for users that are trying to make the most of their set-up. The LENTION L5 Adjustable Height Laptop Stand Desk Riser is a very nice option for elevating your laptop and your workspace at the same time. You don’t have to worry about eye-strain as much and because your laptop is at an angle where you don’t have to look down, you will also probably find that your neck and shoulders don’t hurt as much anymore after your day’s work is done. The stand is a high-quality product that will bring your workspace to the next level.
