For standing desk converters to be comfortable enough for taller users, it has to be able to go beyond 15”. But of course, you have to consider the initial height of the desk you’re going to place the unit on, but let’s assume it’s the standard ones.
And apart from the broad height adjustment, there are also aspects to consider such as the ergonomics of the design and the positioning of the keyboard tray. And I am listing my top picks that check those things that I have mentioned above.
Varidesk Exec 40 ($550)
Varidesk Exec 40 is perhaps a desk riser that can cater to those who stand 6’7” to 6’8”. If you find the other stand desk converters for taller persons still lacking, the Varidesk may provide you the comfortable spot that you are looking for.
This standing desk converter also has other features that make it a great choice. It’s sturdy and robust. And you’d notice that it offers quite a large working space. The monitor is situated several inches from the keyboard tray, so this is also what makes it ideal for taller persons. Also, the keyboard tray features a rather spacious area.
As it’s robust and solid, you might need the help of another person to carry this to your desk. It weighs a hefty 43 kg. Though, you can squeeze in a little workout and position the desk yourself. Otherwise, it doesn’t hurt to ask for help.
Also, it can support 15.8 kg of weight, so decent enough for a mid-size workstation. I thought at first it would topple over if I placed the monitor and a laptop together, but it didn’t. So it can provide a stable workstation too.
It’s also quite easy to adjust. It moves via a spring mechanism. So even if this desk riser has a substantial weight, everyone will find it easy to adjust. You won’t need to flex a lot of muscles.
As for the cons, it seems to have something to do with the newer version of the unit that the brand has rolled out. The keyboard tray with the new version seems to stick out from the front surface, like an offset. Some encountered issues with this in terms of the ergonomics.
- Comes with a 30-day risk-free guarantee
- 5 year limited warranty
- Easy to adjust
- Solid and durable
- Large working area
- No assembly required
- The new version lacks ergonomics
VIVO Black 36” ($179.95)
Standing desk converters that can cater to taller persons can sometimes require more moolah. Because of the wide height adjustment range, they often come with a little bit more dough. So if you need an affordable standing desk converter that you can use if you stand 6”, the VIBO 36” desk riser is a great option.
Let’s go to the good points first. The unit is easy to assemble, would take you 15 minutes. Transition is also quite smooth and fast. You can squeeze in two monitors without any problem. So that’s more than just the basic work set up. The hydraulic arms make it easy to lift and drop this standing desk converter.
You can also adjust the keyboard angle, so that’s a treat for a desk riser that’s affordable. And it’s also stable and sturdy. Though the overall look of the desk isn’t stunning or fancy, it’s not flimsy. It looks like a basic standing desk converter. Which for its price, is good enough.
The downside though, is that it has limited height adjustment. So it can cater to those who stand 6” to 6’1”, but if you are of average height or close to being short, you might not find this standing desk converter that comfortable.
- Affordable price
- Solid and sturdy
- Easy to assemble
- Easy to adjust
- Limited height range adjustment
FEZIBO standing desk converter has one of the comfortable ergonomic designs for a desk riser. The overall design makes the desk riser more comfortable to use at almost any angle. One of my favorites is the keyboard tray.
It’s ergonomically designed and gets rid of the hunching back posture you often find yourself in when you’re typing. The keyboard tray has the perfect distance from the monitor that would suit taller people. You can also remove it if you don’t want to use the tray.
The height settings go up to 19”, so it can accommodate those who stand 6” to 6’2”. And even at that height, you’d still find the desk riser quite ergonomic. I also don’t have any complaints about the structure and stability of this unit. It pretty well holds up on its own. It adjusts via a spring gas system, so no need to do an arm workout while you’re lifting the desk riser.
Fezibo is relatively a new player in the market. But you’ll surely love the features. And of course, there’s the generous 7-year warranty. And when a product has this longer warranty, it speaks volumes of its quality and durability. Moreover, the price is competitive.
- Large work area
- Ergonomic design
- Easy to adjust
- Small footprint
- Decently priced
- Generous warranty
- Could have used rubber feet as an anti-skid
Versadesk Power pro 36
The Versadesk Power PRO 36 is an electric standing desk converter that’s suitable for tall users. This unit is quite popular in the market right now, and it’s not hard to see why. It can go high enough for those who stand 6” to 6’1” it can provide an optimal position for taller users.
Tallers users would find it rather comfortable and they wouldn’t experience any neck strain.
Moreover, it has tons of great features. And for an electric standing desk converter, it has a competitive tag. And those who need a sturdy and solid desk riser for their workstation will find this unit a value for their money. It can hold two monitors without any problems or any issues. And whilst it lifts and lowers, your monitors will stay on the desk.
The monitor also has enough width and depth, though I wished it was the same for the keyboard tray. I find it lacking in depth somehow. And though the transition is seamless and quiet, when you’re down to the last four inches of the height range, it can have quite a loud thud. Other than that, you’d encounter no other problems with this desk riser.
And oh, the warranty will make its client very happy. It offers a lifetime warranty for the frames and a 3-year warranty on the electronic parts. So it’ll make you very happy indeed, worth the money right?
It’s also for those who don’t want to lift the unit. Since it’s electric, all you need to do is press the button.
- Competitive price
- Wide desk area
- Solid and stable
- Does not wobble
- Generous warranty
- The keyboard tray seems to be lacking depth
The EleTab desk riser is a spacious, ergonomic workstation that can cater to those who stand up to 6” to 6’4”. I also find this quite heavy-duty. And it’s perfect for a busy and more comprehensive workstation. The design of the desk is also ergonomic.
Also, both average-sized and taller users can find it convenient. The edges of the keyboard tray are also nicely contoured. So it’s also ergonomic and won’t hurt your wrist.
It offers a two-tier working area that has enough distance from one another. And you can also remove the keyboard tray should you wish for more flexibility. I’d have to say the working area is pretty large for a two large monitor setup. It can hold it pretty well without any wobbling or any issues. The base is quite broad and it distributes the weight of your things evenly, that’s why it’s quite stable and won’t shake.
There’s a lot of room for movement so you won’t feel cramped even with a dual monitor setup. And should I just say that the customer service is awesome? You can receive an email response within a few hours after your queries.
The warranty period is also something I wished all brands would throw-in. It’s backed up with a 10-year warranty. So it’s quite a long relationship with the brand. And with the friendly customer service, I would not mind
The overall look of the desk is also above average. The contoured edges give it a more classical look. If you try to give it a little push even with all your setup on the desk, it won’t budge or fall. So even when it’s transitioning, everything looks and feels seamless. It’s pneumatically adjusted, but it goes up fast and smooth. Unless, you favor one that automatically goes up with a touch of a button, then this isn’t for you.
- Solid and heavy duty
- Large working space
- Great customer service
- Generous warranty period
- Classic appearance
- Ergonomic and flexible
- Requires assembly
So there we go taller folks! These standing desk risers can make your life easier. That’s with no neck and back pain too.
