Ergotron Neo-Flex Notebook Lift Stand


OK~ I was excited to be able to try out an ergonomic product.  The day we received this user friendly Ergotron Neo-Flex Notebook Lift Stand, we were all excited. Thank you, Ergotron, you made our day!  Every member of this household has used this product and we can say that it sure makes using a laptop easier on the eyes.  When we use our laptops we don't always think about how we tilt our necks.  Once you use a lift stand, you will also realize how much easier it is on the neck. ( I should make a note that this lift stand is intended to be used with a separate keyboard & mouse).

Taking it out of the package was easy and the assembly process was also fairly simple.  With a six inch motion range,  your laptop can be placed on this lift stand and viewed quite comfortably by most anyone.  We did use another keyboard at different times, which made the use of our laptop and stand even more user friendly!  Gotta love those Ergonomics~ Ergotron has it all!  Once we figured out how to adjust the tilt, we were set.


It arrived in safe, descriptive packaging!  The directions were legible and helpful!

If you do not have a desk top computer in your house, this is a simple way to test one out.  I personally like using the desk top computer for certain things, as opposed to our laptop.  When a keyboard is used, you do get the true feeling of a desk top computer.  The lift and tilt features were great for each of us, as we all sat at different levels for viewing the laptop screen.


Out of the package and almost ready to use!


A cool feature of this stand is the fact that it rotates 360 degrees.  Take for instance, you want to look at photos of a recent family celebration.  Instead of everyone hunched over your shoulders, you can share them by rotating the viewing platform!  Gotta love the simple things in life.

Another great feature is the fact that it has a vented platform which allows for adequate cooling of your laptop.  No worries about an overheated laptop on your lap.

We did not use the platform with a projector, but it is very capable of being a projector platform.  Just another reason to invest in an Ergotron Neo-Flex Notebook Lift Stand.  The fact that it lifts and tilts so easily, it works out perfect when it comes to adjusting to a projector platform.

This product is transportable, lightweight, and ergonomically friendly to this family.  With a couple of prestigious computer/engineering awards under its belt, this product is one that anyone would benefit from!

My one concern was the fact that I wondered if this stand would scratch our desktop or table.  I am happy to report that it did not!  A product that we enjoyed, which will make using our laptop a little more ergonomically friendly!

*I did receive an Ergotron Neo-Flex Notebook Lift Stand from Ergotron to review.  I did not receive any additional compensation.  The opinions expressed here are mine and nobody else's.

  1. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.
    We'll have to work on our user manual - because it's not intended to type on the notebook when it's on the stand - - very bad for your hands and wrists. It's intended to be used with a separate keyboard and mouse.
    Happy you like the stand, but hope you will revise your set up. . .jrp

  3. Looks like a sturdy accessory that makes sense.
    If I were to make one suggestion to the manufacturer it would be maybe as a option have a laptop fan that can attach to the underneath of the unit and plugs into the usb of the laptop for even better cooling.

    Well written review Sara!
