I have to tell you up-front that I do not own a Fellowes Office Suites Laptop Riser Plus but I work with a bunch of people who do. You see, I have a docking station for my laptop and have a large 17” monitor that I use in conjunction with the docking station. I tried to use two monitors but I found it difficult to manage so I ended up sticking to one monitor.
My co-workers who use the laptop riser also have docking stations but, since they got the riser, they are using the laptop screen as a second monitor in a dual-monitor setup. Until they got the laptop riser, the actual screen was at a much lower level than their other monitor.
Ever since they were able to increase the height of the laptop screen with the riser, they have been able to easily utilize the two monitor office scenario without the company having to purchase a second monitor for their offices.
Laptop Riser Images in my Office Cubicle
As you can see from the image above, you can easily raise the eye level of your laptop screen so as to prevent neck strain. The fact that the screen can be raised is the big comment and best feature according to my co-workers.
Note how the screen of the monitor is raised significantly which makes it ergonomically perfect for data entry and viewing the screen at eye level. Note how it is equal in height to their other monitor.
Note the cooling vents in the riser plus in the image on the right. This helps dissipate heat emanating from the laptop which is a smart feature.
The docking station is seen above but you don’t need a docking station with the laptop riser plus.
As you can see from the above images, it is a really unique office or cubicle accessory. Before I saw them in the offices around me, I had never heard of this accessory which is kind of like my Note Rail and my Cubicle Utility Bowl. Without the help of my readers, I would’ve never purchased these cubicle accessories.
