The Review

Let’s start with a video unboxing and then move on:


The stand ships in a plain white box with a label on it and inside you’ll find everything in plastic bags and then a basic instruction sheet is included as well.

Inside you’ll find eight risers with four rubber feet that go on the bottom of the risers. The small ones are one inch, the large ones are slightly under two inches not including the top parts that fit into the stand. You can use just the large ones, just the small ones or combine them for an even taller stand, or actually you can not use any at all.



The base of the stand is about 11 by 15.5 inches in size and about .5 inches thick. It’s plastic of course and the front has two small sections so you can put stuff in there and it seems well made and sturdy. The stand is plain but that’s fine with me, all the better actually, plain black is good.


On the bottom are the four holes for the legs, not much else there.



The legs just slip in, you just push them in all the way and it’s done, very simple.



The rubber feet just slip over the bottom of the feet to keep the stand in place.

I have four monitors actually at my desk, my main monitor is a 27 inch AOC and it’s never really felt right to me, the position of it I mean, it just needed to go up a little bit so I was level with it instead of looking down slightly at an angle. The specs say the stand can hold up to a 27 inch monitor and that works as that’s what my monitor is. I’m happy with it, it works well and it dos exactly what I needed it to do, raises it up just slightly. I originally used the larger legs but it was too high for me, so I used the smaller legs and it was perfect.

The 2lb Depot monitor stand is a very basic product but it’s a good one in my opinion, I like it, it works and it’s exactly what I needed even though I don’t think I knew I needed it.

The stand brings the monitor up enough to be at a good viewing angle for me. The stand allows me to run my wires under it and help hide them and other wires and it gives me more room actually which is great.

There’s nothing to this product really, just a few pieces that are very easy to assemble and I can’t find anything wrong with it, it is what it is really.

+Adjustable in three stages
+Very sturdy and stable
+Well made

-None that I could find
