Description

The board has a level to show the proper angles for the keyboard. A few gripes are that the board does not swivel well, the tilt mechanism is difficult to use unless familiar with it, and lowering the platform is not that easy without losing your mouse and keyboard.

Keyboard Tray Description

Adjustable in height, depth, tilt, and angle. The mechanism allows adjustment of the tray to an average range of heights. To achieve lower heights, shims can be placed between the desk and the track.

Mouse Tray Description

The mouse area is located on either the right or the left of the keyboard on a swivel rectangular tray.

Accessories Description

The wrist rests can be removed with a screwdriver. Mouse cord clip is nice so the mouse stays on the tray.

Unique Features

A level shows the user how to position the board properly.

Comments

The keyboard tray is nice because it focuses on instructions on proper keyboard placement; however the adjustments are poorly designed. In particular, the tilt mechanism can be cumbersome to adjust, and unless you are familiar with that type of arm achieving the proper tilt is difficult. THe rotate function of the mechanical arm is very difficult to use. The knee clearance is sufficient, but there could be more with a better designed attachment plate. Grease is one big negative in the tray. If the keyboard tray is not cleaned when installed, it is possible to get it on your clothes when scooting under the desk with legs near the track. The platform is designed to fit all keyboards, and the removal of the keyboard platform wrist rest will allow for the split keyboards to fit. The mouse surface is ok, and a nice addition of the wire clip makes sure the mouse doesn’t roll off the back of the platform when storing. The mouse platform is mounted on both sides. Overall, not the best in the world for functionality, but the instructions on placement are nice.
