  • Tiers

The 36” Standing Desk Converter has a two-tiered design, while the Mobile Desk Converter is one single surface. The better option in this case depends on the ways you plan on using your Standing Desk Converter. If you frequently use a mechanical keyboard with your monitors, then the dual tiered design of the 36” Standing Desk Converter allows you to customize your work area to create the workflow you need, and the keyboard tray is removable using the provided hex tool if you want more flexibility. If your work routine lends itself more to laptop use than monitors and keyboards, then the Mobile Desk Converter’s single smooth surface is perfect for you to place your laptop on, and type at the ideal eye and wrist level.


  • Dimensions

The 36” Standing Desk Converter is slightly larger than the Mobile Desk Converter, with a 36” by 16” surface, 576 square inches in total. This is compared to the Mobile Desk Converter’s 26” by 20” surface, which comes out to 520 square inches in total. The difference in sizes roots from the target customer’s needs of each model. In the case of the Standing Desk Converter, the larger surface area, as well as the additional surface area of the removable keyboard tier, is helpful to support additional monitors and electronics. This is why the Mobile Desk Converter’s comparatively smaller size is the ideal size to support laptops or mobile devices, and be exceptionally portable.

In terms of height range, the 36” Standing Desk Converter stands between 4” and 17”, which is a range of 13 inches of adjustability. The Mobile Desk Converter has a whole 14 inches of adjustability, standing from 2” to 16” tall. The extensive height ranges of both products ensure that no matter the height of the surface you place your converter on, or the height that you stand at, RISEDESK will be able to rise to meet you at the ideal level for your productivity, health, and happiness.

  • Frame

Informed from engineering and physics, the design of the high grade steel frames of the Standing Desk Converters are optimized for maximum weight capacity and strength at every level of elevation. The X design adds an incredible level of durability, so you can trust your desk converter to be there for you when you need it, and last. The pneumatic spring lift allows simple and smooth height adjustment at the squeeze of a handle in both models, so adjustment is intuitive, easy, and extremely quick as to not waste your time, energy, or focus while working.

  • Weight Capacity

The 36” Standing Desk Converter has a larger weight capacity than the Mobile Desk Converter, capable of holding 33 lbs on its main desk top surface, and 4 lbs on the keyboard tray. The Mobile Desk Converter holds a comparative 22 lbs, which makes sense due to the lighter nature of mobile devices and laptops when compared to heavy monitors and keyboards.

  • Color Options

Both products are available in a classic black color, so not only will your Standing Desk Converter improve the quality of your work routine, but you will look sharp and smart while doing it.

  • Warranty

  • Price

Because of the 36” Standing Desk Converter’s increased size and array of features to best serve users with large monitor and keyboard setups, it stands at a slightly higher price of $245 when compared to the Mobile Desk Converter’s price of $195. At the end of the day, both standing desk converters are fantastic options, and extremely affordable compared to the functionality of full-scale Standing Desks they provide, and the quality and durability you will be getting. 

The choice we recommend you make depends on the ways that you picture yourself using your Standing Desk Converter, so it is best to figure out first which one is the best match for your needs and lifestyle.
