I started having severe neck and shoulder issues, and needed to change my work setup at multiple places, so I tried multiple solutions. I like the Vivo Standing Desk Converter because you can update your work area to be more ergonomic without moving or replacing existing furniture. This simply goes on top of what you already have. I also like the "layered" setup with the keyboard/mouse platform, and the slightly higher monitor platform, because it means you don't have to buy additional items to raise monitor height. Finally, I like the manual lift aspect because you don't have to worry about electronics going out.
