Humanscale 5G Keyboard Mechanism, 500 Big Board Platform, 27” Gel is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really good but not sure if worth the price. Ikea-level instructions. The knuckle mechanism is where the bulk of the cost is and it's certainly a huge improvement from my old failing keyboard tray. I was disappointed that the plastic end cap didn't fit that well, and how minimal the assembly instructions were for this price point. Not that it was difficult to install - very easy. I was just surprised that the instructions were completely generic for a premium keyboard tray product. It became clear that some steps were model or option specific but were not identified as such. I also wish I had read Humanscale's how-to section before ordering to understand the recommended ergonomics. I would have ordered a smaller tray with separate mouse platform and no wrist pad for the mouse, which apparently puts more pressure on the wrist. Despite a couple of minor reservations, I would recommend this, but it might be worth looking for something almost as good at a lower price.
