Worked for my lcd tv and dvd player (measurements below)Jan 19, 2010
Simple, stable, sturdy (all plastic). I tested it with a 19" LCD flat-screen TV (11 lbs).
Economical: Among the most inexpensive stands you'll find (unless you improvise) at seventeen-bux. Prices for these things in general are crazy - it's just a plastic board with 4 legs, after all.
I like that the sides are not closed off. There is plenty of room between the front and back legs so that it can easily fit over an object wider than itself (eg 43cm-wide dvd player).
Note: This is the lowest model of 3 versions. The others add a bottom platform as well as a slide-in drawer.
The legs are made up of 2 segments of different heights (Big and Small), either of which can be omitted to lower the height, giving you 3 different options for total height.
. Width: 33.4 cm
. Depth: 33.0 - 34.3 cm (not true square as the front bows out, so 34.3 cm through the middle)
Leg segment diameter (round)
. 4.0 cm diameter
. Rubber pad/foot under bottom leg segment: 4.2 cm diameter
Leg segment height
. Big segment: 4.9 cm
. Small segment: 2.9 cm
. Rubber foot: 0.1 cm
Height breakdown (just subtract big or small segment to get intermediate heights)
. Platform thickness: 1.9 cm
. Mount points: + 0.3 cm (the parts of the platform where you attach the legs)
. Big segment: + 4.9 cm
. Small segment: + 2.9 cm
. Rubber foot: + 0.1 cm
. TOTAL/MAX: 10.1 cm
Underneath horizontal clearance (distance between legs and feet) to fit an object
. Width (left-to-right): 25.3 cm apart (10")
. Depth (front-to-back): 24.8 cm apart
Underneath vertical clearance
With both segments used, there is 8.2 cm from the ground to the bottom of the platform, but there are two guides molded into the bottom for sliding in a drawer. These protrude downwards, run front to back, reducing vertical clearance by 1" (2.54 cm), leaving 5.6 cm, for any object that does not fit between them. To fit between them, an object must be less than 23.2 cm wide - which allows it to take advantage of all 8.2 cm of vertical clearance.

Good for your aching neckJan 25, 2005
By J. Wong
All reading, including books, newspaper and computer screens, should ideally be done with the head and neck straight, with eyes looking ahead.
For those who sit and read their screens a lot, this monitor riser promotes good sitting posture. In addition to relieving stress on the neck, the raised monitor prevents "slouching" which so many people do in front of their computers.
The device is simple, but the ergonomic benefits are enormous. I highly recommend it, especially those with neck problems.

Works for meMay 06, 2006
By M. Chabot
I bought both the Targus PA235U stand and this one and decided to keep this Fellows stand. The Targus stand looks nice, but it is more expensive, and the minimum height is too high for my setup. From my experience with computers, I would say the three adjustable heights offered by this stand are more appropriate for most people than the two heights offered by the Targus stand.

it does the job, looks better then a monitor on a fedex box, lolMay 01, 2014
its plastic, not super aesthetic, but it is functional and works to raise monitor height, also creates a little bit of storage space on the desk, hopefully things don't get lost underneath.

Fits the billApr 13, 2014
By A. Young
I needed a riser that would hold a 26" flatscreen and fit a small DVD player underneath, and this Fellowes riser was a pretty easy choice to make. Why? First off, the PRICE. Honestly, for a few pieces of plastic a lot of brands want $40-$50, which is more than I paid for the DVD player.
Secondly, this riser is just a good item. It's sturdy, it accommodates my TV stand well, and the feet do not move around at all once you put the rubber grips on. There's only about 10" of clearance between the feet, which is definitely narrow for most laptops/keyboards, but since my DVD player is tiny, that suited my needs. I'm very happy with my purchase.
