User Experience

It’s a no brainer to use the ERGOSTAND III, all you need to do is decide where to place the product and what angle suits you best.

The purpose of the ERGOSTAND is to provide better viewing angle, improve cooling, and allow users to use keyboard and mouse with their notebooks. It makes sense as keyboard and mouse are ergonomically better than the ones on notebooks.

The ERGOSTAND III’s fan runs silent and it did reduce the operating temperature of the notebook by a little bit during stress test.

The Verdict

The ERGOSTAND III is a solid product retailing at RM 149, it is well built and serves its purpose. The only reason I see one might not consider an ERGOSTAND III is when one’s notebook is very small (11″ or less) as the ERGOSTAND III does increase the viewing distance between the user and the notebook screen.
