FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Ergotron Home Workspace Lift 35 Sit or Stand Adjustable Desk

I have read several studies about the health detriments to sitting most of the day.  Since I am a writer, I find typing much easier while sitting.  I saw this unit on Amazon and received it free for an honest review.  The build quality is exceptional.   It works easily and well.  The down side is that it is big!  49 pounds and dimensions L x W x H     35 x 24 x 20 inches is big.  I measured my desk and thought it would just fit.   I was wrong.  I did not take into consideration that I have pigeon holes and a hutch on the back of my desk.  This unit fit there but I could not access any of the hutch when the unit was extended vertically and could not get to most of the rest even when the unit was down.   

Frankly I was disappointed as I am convinced the concept is sound.  I moved the unit to a table in my garage.  I was pleasantly surprised that it now provides a standing work space in the garage.   I utilized it for several hours yesterday.   My work space in the garage was all table height and consequently led to an aching back whenever I had something that needed fixed.  This worked terrific by bringing he work surface to a comfortable height.  If you want this for  your compute be very generous on your space allocation.  It works great but does take up a lot of space.  For my purposes it is now an invaluable garage tool that demonstrates once again the beauty of flexible re-purposing.

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
