This swivel adjustable laptop stand from SOJUNER has been extremely helpful during virtual meetings, sparing people from having to see the inside of my nostrils. With my office setup, I plug my laptop, a Surface Book, into a large monitor that is on a raised platform, which works great, but my laptop camera must be angled up to show my face, which really isn’t great unless you enjoy exploring nasal cavities. To avoid this issue, I would boost my laptop’s height by placing books underneath it to get a straighter view, but this was problematic because it put my laptop on unstable footing, and it obstructed my view of my large monitor when I had to share my screen. So, I was thrilled when my swivel adjustable laptop screen arrived because it provides the perfect height for my laptop. Now, people who attend meetings with me won’t suddenly think they’ve inadvertently entered a bat cave.
The stand appears to be nicely constructed. It has a decent heft, which provides good stability, so I don’t have to worry that my laptop will come crashing down like a bunch of dominoes during a meeting. I also really appreciate the swivel feature. Because of the location of my desk, people and animals can be in the camera view behind me. As a result, I would often escape to other areas of the house during meetings that took place when everyone was home, but it was annoying to do that. The swivel feature and adjustable neck on this stand enable me to stay at my desk, as I can quickly and easily adjust the direction and angle of my laptop so that no one has to catch a glimpse of some craziness behind me, like my senior dog deciding it’s time to groom his sensitive parts.
Another nice feature of this stand is that it is compact and can be folded, which allows me to keep it right on my desk even when it’s not in use. Now, when I’m called to an impromptu meeting, I can quickly reach for it and put it to use.
I would highly recommend this stand to anyone who uses a laptop for virtual meetings, especially if you find your laptop camera providing less-than-flattering glimpses of your face or surroundings.
