abunda_amazon_reviews I recently bought the 13” Macbook Pro 2016 laptop and needed a stand that was ultra portable for my travels. Doing some research I found out about the Roost stand, which is a foldable laptop stand that became very famous through Kickstarter. However, recently a Chinese copycat stand known as the Nexstand started selling on Amazon. Surprisingly there was a big price difference between the two - the Roost cost $75 vs the Nexstand which was only $25. I tried to search for a comparison between the two to understand why the Roost was so much more expensive (3x more) than the Nexstand, and what differences did the Roost have to justify the price. Unfortunately I couldn’t find any good comparison online, so I ended up buying both the Roost and Nexstand so that I could personally compare the two. Here’s my findings, and hopefully it will help others also trying to decide. Just to clarify, I bought both at full price and have no affiliation to either company. SIZE When folded, the Nexstand is about 1” longer than the Roost, and slightly thicker. This means the Roost is more compact than the Nexstand, and for me that is a bonus - the extra inch that I save in my bag means I can stuff an extra pair of socks in that space! When expanded though, the Nexstand’s extra inch of length makes a big difference in that it appears considerably larger than the Roost. It suggests the Nextstand can hold a thicker or wider laptop than the Roost, but the Roost is still very capable despite its smaller size. The Nexstand comes with extra clips for thinner laptops. CARRY POUCH Both come with a soft carry pouch. Some may not consider this a big deal, but its good to carry the stand in a pouch to avoid it scratching other devices or getting caught on cables. I personally love the subtle logo of the Roost bag, and really dislike the blatant branding of the Nexstand bag. FRONT CLAMPS The laptop is held in place on the stand by the front clamps. It’s an ingenious design and well executed that prevents the laptop from slipping off even when you tilt the stand. However, as the front clamps are the point of contact with the laptop, I wanted to make sure that the clamp would not scratch my laptop. Here the Roost provides the better quality material, using rubber front padding whereas the Nexstand’s clamp is purely plastic. That would seem to make the Roost the more favorable option, but then I notice that the Roost’s plastic back has a middle plastic ridge sticking out (see red arrow on image 4) - perhaps the result of the manufacturing process or a quality control issue?. I don’t think it will scratch the laptop but it’s irritating, especially compared to the Nexstand’s smooth surface. Also it should be noted that the Nexstand clamp looks to be capable of holding thicker laptops than the Roost. REAR BACK RESTS The back of your laptop sits on the rear back rests. This is the secondary point of contact between the stand and the laptop. Just like the front clamps, I want to make sure nothing scratches my laptop. With the Roost, the back rest is covered with a long rubber pad that will gently support the laptop, whereas the Nexstand has skimped here with just a small pad that isn’t even the full width of the bar. You can of course stick some electrical tape there if you want reassurance but the Roost clearly wins here. FRONT LEGS The front legs of the stand touch the table/surface and holds the laptop weight. To prevent the stand slipping around, the Roost has rubber padding that works excellently to keep the stand stable. The Nexstand is just smooth plastic and whilst the stand does remain stable when pushed, it can slide more freely on the table surface. Roost wins here. CONCLUSION Both the Roost and Nexstand are excellent, solidly built stands that will hold your laptop steady. I don’t want to advocate one above the other and have personally kept both for now. The Nexstand’s price represents excellent value and there’s nothing really negative about its quality, so if price is important to you, or you have a really large thick laptop, go with the Nexstand. The Roost provides extra luxuries such as rubber paddings and a more compact frame, but for the price it’s slightly more difficult to justify - if the price point doesn’t bother you then the Roost certainly represents a more “upgraded” model.;;Reviewed in the United States on February 10, 2017;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Roost vs Nexstand;;Tim;;;We here at Pack Hacker, checked out two popular laptop stands on the market—The Roost and The Nexstand. The Roost started from a Kickstarter campaign in June of 2013, and it worked so well that it later spawned a couple of imitators. The Nexstand Laptop Stand - Portable Laptop Stand - PC and MacBook Laptop Stand is one of those. They are both great stands and will work as intended, but here at Pack Hacker, we like to dive a little deeper. Portability: Right off the bat, the Roost just looks smaller. We weighed them ourselves, and the Roost stand comes in at 6.05 ounces, while the Nexstand is a bit heavier at 8.2 ounces. A minor difference in weight, but for someone who travels a lot and is concerned with the weight of their pack or wants to travel ultralight— two ounces is nothing to sneeze at. As far as physical size, the Roost measures 1.3 x 1.3 x 13 inches (3.3 x 3.3 x 33m), while the Nexstand comes in at 1.5 x 1.5 x 14 inches (3.81 x 3.81 x 35.6 cm). Again, we’re talking about a pretty small difference here, but when you actually look at them the Roost stand definitely feels more compact. The verdict? Roost takes the win on portability. It’s smaller, lighter, and has a better case. Ultimately, that means it will pack away better in your bag or luggage. Durability & Sturdiness: With these stands, the Roost feels really robust and solid when you first pick it up. The rubber on the contact points—where the stand will be touching the laptop—is definitely of a higher quality than the Nexstand. The Nexstand feels a little looser, more wobbly—if that’s a word—and the rubber is much harder. As far as durability goes, the Roost wins again for durability and sturdiness. Although the Nexstand marketing team really likes to put gym weights on their stand to show its sturdiness, the Roost stand is built out of better materials—glass-fiber reinforced nylon vs. PVC—and feels a lot better. Versatility & Height: Both of these laptop stands will hold just about any laptop you can get your hands on, which is awesome. We have heard reports about a couple cases where thicker laptops won't fit, but the majority of laptops will work with these. The Roost stand uses a rubber sort of pivot grip, which latches onto the front of the laptop, and secures it to the stand very nicely. The Nexstand has the same type of attachment, although the harder plastic means it doesn’t grip the laptop quite as well. Ultimately, this shouldn’t be a problem—but if you bump your laptop on the Nexstand it is more likely to fall out of the stand. The Roost stand offers three different height settings that you can easily adjust between, which is very convenient. Depending on the height of the table or your chair you may need to adjust the stand a bit. But the Nexstand offers eight settings—which is amazing. The Nexstand scores major points there. It should also be noted that both stands have the same maximum height—20.5 inches to the top of the screen with a 15” Macbook Pro. For versatility and height, we just couldn’t pick a winner—it’s a tie. The Roost stand is better at holding different laptop sizes and doesn’t need the extra clips. But the Nexstand has way better options for height adjustments, making it super versatile and convenient. Price: This one is pretty clear cut. At the time of this review, the Roost stand is on sale for $79.95, while the Nexstand is listed at $29.95. We’ll let you figure out who won this category. Who won which category?: - Portability: Roost - Durability & Sturdiness: Roost - Versatility & Height: Tie - Price: Nexstand Conclusion: The Roost stand is clearly the superior laptop stand. That being said, both are capable stands, unless you’re working in some extreme environments you should be fine with either one. Ultimately, we think this decision comes down to price. If you’re the kind of person who likes to have the best gear possible (we fall into this category), go for the Roost. If you’re a little more budget conscious, the Nexstand will serve you well. After all, you can buy close to three Nexstands for the same price as one Roost stand—and it is still a perfectly capable stand. Pros: When folded, the Roost is light, compact, and easily stowed. Holds most laptops very securely. Soft rubber contact points means no damage to your laptop. Cons: You’ll need to bring along a keyboard + mouse. Price—this is one of the more expensive portable laptop stands out there.

I personally love the subtle logo of the Roost bag, and really dislike the blatant branding of the Nexstand bag. FRONT CLAMPS The laptop is held in place on the stand by the front clamps. It’s an ingenious design and well executed that prevents the laptop from slipping off even when you tilt the stand. However, as the front clamps are the point of contact with the laptop, I wanted to make sure that the clamp would not scratch my laptop. Here the Roost provides the better quality material, using rubber front padding whereas the Nexstand’s clamp is purely plastic. That would seem to make the Roost the more favorable option, but then I notice that the Roost’s plastic back has a middle plastic ridge sticking out (see red arrow on image 4) - perhaps the result of the manufacturing process or a quality control issue?. I don’t think it will scratch the laptop but it’s irritating, especially compared to the Nexstand’s smooth surface. Also it should be noted that the Nexstand clamp looks to be capable of holding thicker laptops than the Roost. REAR BACK RESTS The back of your laptop sits on the rear back rests. This is the secondary point of contact between the stand and the laptop. Just like the front clamps, I want to make sure nothing scratches my laptop. With the Roost, the back rest is covered with a long rubber pad that will gently support the laptop, whereas the Nexstand has skimped here with just a small pad that isn’t even the full width of the bar. You can of course stick some electrical tape there if you want reassurance but the Roost clearly wins here. FRONT LEGS The front legs of the stand touch the table/surface and holds the laptop weight. To prevent the stand slipping around, the Roost has rubber padding that works excellently to keep the stand stable. The Nexstand is just smooth plastic and whilst the stand does remain stable when pushed, it can slide more freely on the table surface. Roost wins here. CONCLUSION Both the Roost and Nexstand are excellent, solidly built stands that will hold your laptop steady. I don’t want to advocate one above the other and have personally kept both for now. The Nexstand’s price represents excellent value and there’s nothing really negative about its quality, so if price is important to you, or you have a really large thick laptop, go with the Nexstand. The Roost provides extra luxuries such as rubber paddings and a more compact frame, but for the price it’s slightly more difficult to justify - if the price point doesn’t bother you then the Roost certainly represents a more “upgraded” model.

The Roost 2.0 vs. the Nexstand K2
We here at Pack Hacker, checked out two popular laptop stands on the market—The Roost and The Nexstand. The Roost started from a Kickstarter campaign in June of 2013, and it worked so well that it later spawned a couple of imitators. The Nexstand Laptop Stand - Portable Laptop Stand - PC and MacBook Laptop Stand is one of those. They are both great stands and will work as intended, but here at Pack Hacker, we like to dive a little deeper. Portability: Right off the bat, the Roost just looks smaller. We weighed them ourselves, and the Roost stand comes in at 6.05 ounces, while the Nexstand is a bit heavier at 8.2 ounces. A minor difference in weight, but for someone who travels a lot and is concerned with the weight of their pack or wants to travel ultralight— two ounces is nothing to sneeze at. As far as physical size, the Roost measures 1.3 x 1.3 x 13 inches (3.3 x 3.3 x 33m), while the Nexstand comes in at 1.5 x 1.5 x 14 inches (3.81 x 3.81 x 35.6 cm). Again, we’re talking about a pretty small difference here, but when you actually look at them the Roost stand definitely feels more compact. The verdict? Roost takes the win on portability. It’s smaller, lighter, and has a better case. Ultimately, that means it will pack away better in your bag or luggage. Durability & Sturdiness: With these stands, the Roost feels really robust and solid when you first pick it up. The rubber on the contact points—where the stand will be touching the laptop—is definitely of a higher quality than the Nexstand. The Nexstand feels a little looser, more wobbly—if that’s a word—and the rubber is much harder. As far as durability goes, the Roost wins again for durability and sturdiness. Although the Nexstand marketing team really likes to put gym weights on their stand to show its sturdiness, the Roost stand is built out of better materials—glass-fiber reinforced nylon vs. PVC—and feels a lot better. Versatility & Height: Both of these laptop stands will hold just about any laptop you can get your hands on, which is awesome. We have heard reports about a couple cases where thicker laptops won't fit, but the majority of laptops will work with these. The Roost stand uses a rubber sort of pivot grip, which latches onto the front of the laptop, and secures it to the stand very nicely. The Nexstand has the same type of attachment, although the harder plastic means it doesn’t grip the laptop quite as well. Ultimately, this shouldn’t be a problem—but if you bump your laptop on the Nexstand it is more likely to fall out of the stand. The Roost stand offers three different height settings that you can easily adjust between, which is very convenient. Depending on the height of the table or your chair you may need to adjust the stand a bit. But the Nexstand offers eight settings—which is amazing. The Nexstand scores major points there. It should also be noted that both stands have the same maximum height—20.5 inches to the top of the screen with a 15” Macbook Pro. For versatility and height, we just couldn’t pick a winner—it’s a tie. The Roost stand is better at holding different laptop sizes and doesn’t need the extra clips. But the Nexstand has way better options for height adjustments, making it super versatile and convenient. Price: This one is pretty clear cut. At the time of this review, the Roost stand is on sale for $79.95, while the Nexstand is listed at $29.95. We’ll let you figure out who won this category. Who won which category?: - Portability: Roost - Durability & Sturdiness: Roost - Versatility & Height: Tie - Price: Nexstand Conclusion: The Roost stand is clearly the superior laptop stand. That being said, both are capable stands, unless you’re working in some extreme environments you should be fine with either one. Ultimately, we think this decision comes down to price. If you’re the kind of person who likes to have the best gear possible (we fall into this category), go for the Roost. If you’re a little more budget conscious, the Nexstand will serve you well. After all, you can buy close to three Nexstands for the same price as one Roost stand—and it is still a perfectly capable stand. Pros: When folded, the Roost is light, compact, and easily stowed. Holds most laptops very securely. Soft rubber contact points means no damage to your laptop. Cons: You’ll need to bring along a keyboard + mouse. Price—this is one of the more expensive portable laptop stands out there. Limited height adjustments compared to other stands.

This thing is amazing. After a diagnosis of herniated discs in my back, I had to do something about my posture -- I'd often spend 12+ hours on the computer, most of it slouched over my laptop. I also some slouch in my upper back, including a forward head position and rounded shoulders. When I finally got serious about things a couple months ago, I got a Lumo Lift and started using an old Griffin Elevator stand . This helped a lot, but the Griffin stand didn't get my computer very high, so it still wasn't at eye level. Plus, it was heavy and bulky to carry to my coworking space. The Roost stand seemed pricey for what it is, but it's worth every penny. It opens and closes easily and smoothly, and takes up almost no space in my bag. Since I'm taller, I haven't had any need to use it any lower level than the highest, but that feature seems to work fine too. I was also a little concerned, that it seemed to require the computer to be open really far at the higher settings. My laptop is open close to its max, but it's not strained, and the screen is angled just right. I have a 2012 MacBook Pro and a 2015 MacBook Air and both work great, and fit well -- despite very different thicknesses. I'd recommend this to anyone who spends serious time on a laptop. Don't wait until you have a back problem to start working on your posture!
