It was either this or the Varidesk. After having seen and read the features and numerous reviews I decided to go with the WorkFit-TL.
Ergotron also offers the lower-priced and the almost identical WorkFit-T (the little brother of TL) . The primary reason I spent the extra bucks and went with the TL was due to the larger keyboard tray size. Having read reviews for the WorkFit-T, the main complaint was the lack of room for a keyboard and mouse on the keyboard tray. With the TL, Ergotron fixes that while giving even more real estate on the main surface.
Few other plus points over the Varidesk:
- goes straight up and not outwards when raised.
- the adjustment clips are smooth, flexible and quiet.
Bottom line, I love it. I work as a devops engineer and I can honestly say I've been so much more productive. Keeps me refreshed throughout the work day. My co-workers love it and some are considering getting one. It's not cheap, but to me this was worth every penny and more.
Sidenote: Few of my coworkers have the Varidesk and they love it as it fits their needs. Check them both out and see which works best for you. For me, the Workfit-TL is almost perfect!
This is a wonderful discovery for me! Well made, very sturdy, works smoothly, is easy to raise and lower (& I am over 75). But be sure your monitor cables are long enough to reach the desktop's highest level, in case someone unfamiliar with your desktop gets hold of it - it can move up pretty quickly if you don't have complete control over it when you depress the levers. My two 27 inch monitors fit fine on top and tend to slow the upward lift, but a single smaller monitor might be in danger if a child or unsuspecting visitor tried it out without warning. I researched this item fairly extensively and am glad I chose this model. I use a largish keyboard & like a good bit of room for my mouse; width & depth are OK, but I wouldn't mind an extra inch of depth. Nonetheless, I find this a 5 star purchase.
Egotron WorkFit-TL -
Sturdy, Strong and Wellmade. Unlike the VariDesk this goes straight up and down.
Cons: The keyboard tray is a little on the short side. I could of used another 2-3 inches of space.
I like this product and it works great, just wish the keyboard could be pushed in and back out when not using it. It would make more room to work on your desk.
Overall, I like the product. I does raise/lower very easily with little effort. The only complaint is that the keyboard shelf does not slide in at all. There is about 3 inches where the shelf could slide in so that it doesn't stick out so far. Other than that, I'm very happy.
