The Hazards of Buying for Budget

Budget-minded desks tend to have a few drawbacks you might want to be aware of. Here are a few concerns you may want to bear in mind as you look into budget-friendly desks.

SIZE

cheaper desks often feature smaller work surfaces. If you need to hold multiple monitors or additional accessories, it may ramp up the cost of your purchase. Industry folks generally recommend a workspace of between 24-30 inches but the bigger you can get the better off you will be. Remember, your computer alone will eat up a healthy chunk of that space so if you want elbow room you will need to plan accordingly.

RANGE

Budget-minded desks also often feature a smaller range. If you are especially tall or short you may require something with a more robust adjustment range than budget units have to offer.

HARDWARE

And of course, we can’t forget build quality. Cheaper units use cheaper materials. Bad hardware cuts against the life expectancy of the converter, and it also makes the unit a lot less stable.

Of course, you can still get good, highly functional products for a good price. The four products above are certainly a testament to this.


Best Standing Desk Converter for Dual Monitors

Some, but not all of the products on our list today are able to host up to two monitors. Below you will find products that are specifically designed for this. If you need to host two monitors, there are some considerations you will need to bear in mind to ensure safety and effectiveness.

For example, the average computer monitor is 24 inches.

For best results, you will need more than twice that much space to host multiple monitors. There are also different mechanisms that allow for multiple screens. Some use risers, other special mounts that are designed to keep the monitors eye level.

Column style mounts tend to maximize the ergonomic factor but the installation process is a little bit more complicated, and the products as a whole tend to be more expensive.

You will see examples of all these factors illustrated in the products below, so read on!

INMOVEMENT DT20

The Inmovement is a little bit snugger than some of the other options on our list. The size is compact enough to suit a modest office but the top workspace still features enough room for two sizable monitors.

It features an attractive walnut design and lives straight up and down to maximize space efficiency. It’s also worth mentioning that the unit comes pre-assembled—a great feature for people that want something low-maintenance and easy.

Unfortunately, the compact dimensions cut against the user experience somewhat. The keyboard tray is a little too snug and some treys might not fit.

Pros

  • Low-profile
  • Attractive design
  • Pre-assembled

Cons

  • Keyboard trey may be too small

LOCTEK LXR36

The Loctek features a range of between 30-48 inches. The sizable platform is able to comfortably host tow monitors as well as the ensuing accessories. It also benefits from an onboard USB port, and a straight up and down lifting mechanism that is quick and easy to use.

The Loctek can be adjusted between 30-48 inches. The unit is specifically designed to manage wires and it even comes with a handy built-in USB port. The desk adjusts upward and features a retractable keyboard tray that helps with space management.

The upper tier does get a little bit crowded with two monitors, but it is at least enough room for your hardware to be safely housed.

Cons

  • Straight up and down adjustment
  • Sizable workspace
  • Built-in USB drive

Pros

  • Top-tier gets crowded

Remember, it’s always a good idea to know your monitor dimensions before you select a product. While all of the options are suitable for some monitors, they may or may not be right for yours.

FLEXISPOT M2 35 INCH

The Flexispot M2 features 35 inches of upward clearance. It can be upwardly adjusted with ease thanks to two high-quality gas springs and, in addition to having enough room for two monitors it can also house tablets, phones, notes, and other office necessities.

  • Column style design
  • Lots of workspace
  • Sturdy hardware

Cons

  • Pricey
