Initially started shopping for monitor stands to improve my seated posture, but it had to also fit other criteria: a stand wide enough to fit dual screens & a streamlined design to keep my desk from looking cluttered. While competitor stands are cheaper in price, they look & feel cheaper as well. I'm of the camp "buy it once & never buy it again" & this item delivers in its superb quality. If you're pretty sold on the look, but have some hesitation on the price like I did, check out their story & sustainability initiatives. Their mission, along with awesome customer service, are just icing on a great line of products. Really happy with my purchase!
