Comments

The keyboard tray is nice because it actually has instructions on how to adjust. The mechanism is adjusted like most with a dial that has a slotted tilt option which can be difficult to figure out and adjust if not familiar with the device. Something that alleviates this issue is that directions are included on the mechanisms. The rotate function of the mechanical arm is easy to use. The mechanism allows for tilting, height, and depth adjustment for the keyboard tray. The platform is designed to fit all keyboards 19 inches wide or smaller but not ones that are larger like the “Microsoft Natural Keyboard Pro.” The platform can also adjust side to side if the tray is needed more to the right or left. A small red screw on the platform accomplishes this. The removal of the keyboard platform wrist rest will allow for the split keyboards to fit in height and overhang in width but the adhesive must be separated to achieve this. The mouse surface is nice, but the size is too small and most mice will not operate well. A nice addition plastic rail makes sure the mouse doesn’t roll off the back of the platform when storing. The mouse platform can be mounted on both sides but the adjustment is hidden. The tilt and movement functionality of the mouse is almost impossible to use, and most people would not bother to adjust after initially setting it. Overall, not the best in the world for functionality and stability, but the instructions are nice.
