I have a tiny apartment(300sf) and didn't want somethign fixed to my wall but that I could take from room to room. This is a great little peice. It's shorter than I thought it would be when at full height. Standing (I'm barely 5'5") I have to bend over when the desk is raised to full height. If you're looking for something moble and standing and you are taller than 5'0" I wouldn't chose this. But when I'm sitting on my couch or laying in bed it's a great option. I hate assembly required products but this one whipped up in forty mintues. Instructions were very easy to understand and everything was simply lavled so even someone willfuly ignorant abotu putting stuff together can do akay.
