Excellent value I am well pleased with the item. It allows me to have more room on my desk, which is very good. Room for more junk. LoL

modern design, good keyboard, excellent screen size

difficult to set angle of screen for good visability without it sliding back. could do with some sort of locking, ratchet system to maintain desired angle.
