Best Standing Desk Converters For Tall People 2020

So you are tall and looking for a standing desk converter. You have come to the right place! Since tall is quite a subjective measurement, I am going to define tall as a person whose height is at least 6’ (183 cm) and above.

What I am going to share with you is my recommendation for the best standing desk converters for tall people, which is different from a regular size standing desk or stand up desk. If you are looking for them, you can check my best selection of electric standing desks.

Just in case you are not familiar with the term standing desk converter, it is basically a desk on top of another desk.

Top 5 things to consider for tall people

There are a few main things that you need to know or understand when considering a standing desk converter for your particular height.

1. Viewing Angle

Your main goal is to get your eyes’ view to be naturally downward when looking at your screens. You need to set your eyes’ line-of-sight to be level from the top of your monitors.

If you have to constantly force your eyes to look up, sooner or later you will get an eye strain. Furthermore, you may get aches and pains in your neck and shoulder area. These are all very common complaints among people who stares at monitors all day long.

2. Current Desk Height Measurement

It goes without saying that you need to measure your existing desk (width, depth, height) regardless of the reasons you are buying a standing desk converter.

A standard desk height is between 28” and 30”. This should not be an issue but just in case you have an unusually lower or higher desk than the standard size, you want to know this in advance so that you can measure how height your desk riser needs to be when you stand up.

3. Monitor Stands Measurement

Do you use a monitor adjustable arm on your current desk? Or do you only have your monitors? If you currently use a monitor arm, find out the maximum height you can get for your monitors and take that into consideration when choosing your converter. 

One thing to keep in mind is that stability will be an important factor if you plan to extend the desk converter and monitor arm  to their highest setting possible.

4. Elbow Angle

Your goal is to have your elbows at 90 degrees angle or slightly more when typing. This will significantly create less stress and strain to your elbows, wrists, and forearms.

At the lowest setting (collapsed position) your standing desk converter will give you a little bit of additional heights so you may need to adjust your chair slightly up in order to maintain the right elbow angle.

5. Keyboard Tray Height 

This is related to my previous point about the elbow angle. If you are 6’ or above, your keyboard needs to be at 44” or above. Therefore, it is crucial for you to get a standing desk converter with a wide range of adjustment. 


15 Best standing desk converters for tall people 2020

According to the National Health Statistics Reports published in December 20, 2018 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the average height for men in the US is 69.0 inches (5’9”) or 175.6 cm and for women is 63.6 inches (5’3”) or 161.5 cm.

Since most standing desk converters are catered to average people height, if you are 6’ tall, you are actually still in good shape. The challenge is for those whose height is 6’2” or taller.

Therefore the criteria that I choose for the best standing desk converters for tall people is for them to be able to reach at least 19 inches from the tabletop.

Here are my top 15 standing desk converters for tall people:

 

1. Flexispot M4 Corner Standing Desk Converter

Flexispot M4
Flexispot M4 Corner Standing Desk Converter

Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars

 

I listed Flexispot M2 as one the best standing desk converters in 2020. The Flexispot M4 is basically a same desk but with different width size and shape edges to accommodate your L-shaped desk. Because of this reason, Flexispot M4 shares essentially the same features as the M2 version.

My favorite feature of any Flexispot standing desk converters is the ability to move straight up and down unlike some other brands that will swing back when lifted. This means that you will take up less space, lower the risk of tipping, and stay close to the desk. You may not feel the difference if you have plenty of space behind you but in a compact office environment, you will be glad to have this feature.

Just like the M2 version, you will get these features as well from Flexispot M4:

  • Gas spring handle for smooth adjustment. It is designed so that you can lift the desk with just one hand.
  • 12 height settings up to 20 inches. This will support users above 6’ but if you want to ensure your body to stand straight and your eyes level with your monitors, you need to consider getting a monitor arm.
  • Quick-release keyboard tray. You have an option to easily remove the tray when you are performing tasks that don’t require a keyboard and a mouse.
  • Dedicated hole to mount a monitor arm using clamp or grommet mount. This is just another reason this is the best all around desk converter on the market.

2. Eureka Ergonomic V1 Sit to Stand Desk Converter 36”

Eureka Ergonomic V1 Sit to Stand Desk Converter 36 inch

Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars

Eureka Ergonomic is well known for its gaming desks but it also makes high quality standing desk converters that have garnered a lot of positive reviews.  Many buyers liked it because of its sturdiness and durability. The cost is also comparable with other high quality brands.

One of my favorite features of this standing desk converter is the Infinite height positions. With patented gas struts mechanism you can adjust the height anywhere between 5.75 to 20 inches unlike some models that come with pre-set height settings. This is very helpful to find your most comfortable position and there is no cranking or clicking noise. 

In addition to that, you will like the following features too:

  • Sturdy Z-structure. This provides stability as you adjust your desk up and down. No wobbling or tilting up and down, left or right.
  • Spacious keyboard tray. You can fit it a small laptop like a MacBook but in my opinion using a bluetooth keyboard and a mouse is probably still the best option. 
  • Compatible with most monitor arm mount. Therefore, you can get the extra heights if necessary and position your eyes’ level as natural as possible.
  • Hassle free assembly. There are no assembly and tools required. Just get it out of the box and you can start using your new desk converter immediately.

Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars

Fezibo is a relatively new brand in the market. However, it has steadily established itself as a provider of a quality product with very competitive cost. There is a lot to like about this standing desk converter. You will be pleasantly surprised to see many nice features available similar to other premium brands.

This corner converter actually moves up and down within its own footprint. Therefore, if you are in a compact workstation, you can save some space and stay close to your desk. You will also get a dedicated slot to place your phone.

If that is not enough, you will get these features as well from Fezibo stand up cubicle corner:

  • Spring-loaded scissor lift mechanism. It is designed so that you can have a smooth transition when raising and lowering your desk.
  • Height settings up to 19 inches. If you are above 6’, you still want to consider getting a monitor arm for the best height adjustment.
  • Spacious work area. With 37 inches wide you will have a nice space to place a dual monitor. However, the indicated loading capacity is only 28.6 lbs so if your monitor bases are very heavy, it is best to get a monitor arm.
  • Long Warranty. I have not seen other brands that are willing to offer a warranty longer than 5 years but with Fezibo you will get 7 years of warranty.

Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars

Let me introduce you to the original electric standing desk converter – VersaDesk Power Pro 36. It is designed and assembled in Los Angeles, USA. This electric height-adjustable desk riser is truly the benchmark in the sit-to-stand industry. From its exceptional quality all the way to its lifetime warranty, you will find it hard to get another powered desk that can compete with VersaDesk Power Pro 36.

There is a LOT to like from this desk but my favorite feature is that it comes with an option to change the standard power height control switch to a deluxe USB control switch that is valued at $79. It has the ability to charge your smartphone, a safety locking mechanism, and led back light which turns off when your Power Pro is in a locked height position.

Below are additional features that you will like:

  • Very low-cost operation. If you worry about paying a substantial electric bill, this electric standing desk converter only needs 40 cents a year to run!
  • Powered push button to accommodate every height. You can elevate the desk up to 20 inches. This is about as tall as any premium brands can go.
  • Powerful motor system. You will be able to raise your electric desk with everything on it up to 80 lbs! That is a lot of heavy stuff by the way if you do have that much on your desk.
  • Scratch or dirt resistant. This means you can maintain your converter just like new every day.
  • 3 grommet holes. This feature gives you the freedom to install monitor arms wherever you like or use them to manage your cables. However, it’s not necessarily meant to hold 3 monitor with each grommet hole

6. TechOrbits Standing Desk Converter 32”

TechOrbits 32 inches Standing Desk Converter

Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars

If you are looking for a very budget friendly standing desk converter, TechOrbits could be your answer. The price is almost half off some other premium brands. Because of this I am often skeptical whenever I see a price well below the competition. 

However, TechOrbits Height Adjustable Stand Up Desk Riser has gotten a healthy number of positive reviews. They love how strong and sturdy the desk is. My favorite feature is the fact that at the time this review is written, the company offers a lifetime warranty, which is very rare for a standing desk converter. 

I am not sure how long this generous offer will last but a few buyers have reported excellent customer service when dealing with their issues. One thing you need to be aware of is that the keyboard tray is fixed and sticking out as you move the desk up and down. Therefore, you need to make sure your regular desk has at least 24” depth. 

Below are some additional features that you are getting from this affordable desk riser:

  • Dual Monitor Compatible. With a pre-set grommet hole, you can install an external monitor mount. However, you may not need it if your existing monitor stands are tall enough for you.
  • Easy Assembly. You only need to install the keyboard tray with four screws and you can use the desk immediately.
  • Embedded groove. You can use it to place your smartphone or tablet or perhaps your favorite pens.
  • Non-skid silicone pads. This is to make sure that your new standing desk converter will not damage your regular desk and move around while you use it.

Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars

If you like what you read on the non-electric Vivo Desk standing desk converter, you are most likely going to like the electric version as well. Vivo Desk V000EB has similar specifications like the other Vivo Desk risers but with a few additional features. You will not only get the typical device tray on your desktop but also a USB port in your switch button with no extra cost.

One thing I want to mention is that the desk’s weight capacity of 33 lbs is lower than the other brands. I personally think 33 lbs should be enough but if you need more than that, you may want to consider other options.

Here are more features that you will like:

  • C-Clamp Mounts. You can attach it to the back of the desk for single and dual monitor setups.
  • Innovative electric height locking mechanism. Adjust your converter just by pressing a button up to 19 inches.
  • Sturdy steel frame. This means you can raise and lower your desk smoothly without experiencing wobbliness.

Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars

If you are in the market for a reliable and high quality desk converter that can satisfy your need, Flexispot M2 is one that you must consider. The reason I say this is because this product checks the box of many requirements that people are looking for. Plus, the cost is very competitive with the other leading brands.

One of my favorite features of this standing desk converter is it moves up and down on its own footprint. That means you can save more space and reduce the risk of tipping over significantly. When you stand up from your sitting position, you do not need to move back or change your body position.

If that is not enough, you will also like that it comes with:

  • Single-handle design to safely adjust the height of the desk. Therefore, you do need to use two hands or extra force unlike some other brands.
  • 12 height settings to accommodate every height. This ensures that if you are taller than 6’, you can also enjoy the ergonomic benefit from this desk.
  • Spacious desktop worksurface. You will have plenty of space to place your laptop, monitor, document, and more.

Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars

Do you have an L-shaped desk at your workplace? If you plan to place your sit-to-stand desk converter right in the corner, you want to pay attention more closely to the shape and the width of it. If it is a square shape and is very wide, you will end up having a lot of empty space at the back. 

Fortunately, you can minimize that problem by choosing a standing desk converter that is specifically designed to fit in a corner wall. The outer edges are made with a 45 degrees angle. Therefore, allowing you to push the desk further against the wall. I gave more recommendation for the best standing desk converters for corner desk in my prior posting. 

Flexpro Hero Corner Standing Desk Converter by Stand Steady can fulfill your need with competitive price. It is easy to assemble! You just need to install the keyboard shelf with a few screws and you can use it immediately. I like that the keyboard tray is large and spacious but it is stationary once installed.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

If you are looking for more options for a budget friendly ergonomic standing desk converter, AdvanceUp 2-Tier standing desk converter will be one of them. It checks all the boxes and meets the criteria for tall people.

You will see that the features are very similar to the other established brands. For example, you will get the tablet/smartphone slot and be able to instantly use the desk out of the box after installing the spacious keyboard tray.

One con that I want to bring up is the warranty period. It is very short (30 days) but the good news is that I have not seen any negative reviews so far from multiple online sources. If you are really tight on your budget and are willing to try non-premium brands, you seriously need to consider this desk riser.

Below are more features you can compare with other brands:

  • Gas spring lifting mechanism. This will provide an easy and smooth movement as you lift the desk up and down.
  • Sturdy steel base. This means you do not need to worry about rattling or wobbliness issue when typing or writing.

Komene height adjustable standing desk converter is a relatively new brand. Therefore, it has not received a lot of reviews compared to other established brands. However, based on the feedback from a handful of buyers, it has met or exceeded their expectations.

You will notice that the desk pretty much has all the standard features. Since it is an X-shaped design, you adjust the desk straight up and down so you do not need to back out when lifting it. You will also like that the warranty period is 5 years, which is in the high end of the market. 

Here are additional features that you will enjoy:

  • Infinite height adjustment. There is no predetermined height settings so you can freely adjust your desk to any height you want up to 20”.
  • Special groove for smart devices. This has become a standard feature with the proliferation of smartphones and tablets. You can safely place one of them in the slot. 
  • Large desktop area. You will not have a problem putting two standard size monitors (22”- 24”) or a big monitor and a laptop. However, the desk does not have  a dedicated hole to mount a monitor arm.
  • Keyboard bezel design. This is actually a pretty unique feature. You can place your keyboard without having to worry that it will accidentally fall from the tray.

Stand Up Desk Store AirRise Electric Power Pro Two-Tier Standing Desk Converter

Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars

I want to show you another electric standing desk converter that can be raised above 19”.  The Power Pro Series by Stand Up Desk Store provides plenty of width options for different users’ needs. You can select a 32”, 36”, or a 42” heavy duty sit stand desk that can hold up to 55 lbs. All of them move straight up and down with no hassles. 

If you are interested to see a few more options of electric standing desk converters, I invite you to check my list of best standing desk converters. One thing that I am not a big fan of is the depth of the desktop surface. With only 13.8” it does not have a lot of extra space once you place more than one monitor. 

 Other than that, I think you will like the following features: 

  • Electric push button. You can enjoy the simplicity of raising and lowering the desk by a push of a button, which is an excellent choice if you have a bad back.
  • No Assembly required. You only need to take it out from the box and put it on your existing desk.
  • Cable Management. There are three cord holes behind the keyboard tray that will make your workstation look organized. A 10 foot power cord is also included.

Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars

With so many different brands on the market, sometimes it could be hard to differentiate one from another. However, you can almost tell immediately when you see an InMovement Standing Desk Converter. This desk riser looks elegant in the office setting with a chrome colored base and veneer top.

InMovement DT20 Standing Desk Pro is a newer model replacing InMovement Standing Desk Converter DT2. With the new model you are now lifting straight up and down. Therefore, saving space and reducing the risk of tipping. It is also a smaller and sleeker design than the previous model

Here are a few more features that you will be pleased with:

  • New Modesty Panel. This is a pretty unique feature where the desk comes with a panel to cover things under your desk and hide the wire clutter.
  • Wide range of height settings between 5.6”and 19.5” high. This ensures that it can capture the needed height for nearly everyone.
  • Fully assembled and ready to use. You just need to take it out from the box and set it on top of your current desk.
  • Gas spring lift. This will make the desk less likely to fail than a typical piston spring system, which means you can expect it to last for a long time.

  1. I never would have thought about a standing desk not working for the taller person.  I have not used any desks like these but have researched them in the past.  It looks like anyone of these would work for any height person but would cater a little more towards a taller person.  I was wondering if you would have a favorite one to recommend a person.  All of them look good and look like they will help out when standing just not sure as to the right one.  Also price can be one thing that people are afraid of do these hold up to a lot of use as far as everyday up and down constraints go.  I look forward to your response to help me find the best one out there.  Thank you

    1. Hi Douglas, Thank you for your comments. My favorite one is Versadesk Power Pro 36 as it is electric and can hold a lot of weights. It is, however, costs a little bit more than the non-electric ones. Therefore, if budget is not a problem for you, you should consider getting an established brand. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any other questions. 

  2. Thanks so much for this valuable information on standing desk converters since I am 6″ 5 1/2” tall.  You have supplied me with a lot of detailed info which is very helpful.

    I never considered things like viewing angle and elbow angle before.  Thank you for reviewing the different models as well as that makes it easier to choose.  The prices seem very reasonable.  I am going to have to spend some time reviewing all this info again in order to decide what is best for my situation.

    Thanks so much Rei for this article.  All the Best to You.
