Oooohhh this is an interesting alternative...
I needed to use the pole from the keyboard stand since the one from the monitor stand wasn't high enough.

How many monitors do you have on it? I need it to support 2 monitors.

I'll look around for something - thanks for the general idea...

The entire desk; don't want the "converter".
I use https://relaxtheback.com/products/adaptdesk-by-relax-the-back?variant=14774767321147 72" model. Holds a few screens ;)

Works perfect. But I got a good deal on it, doubt I'd spend retail.

Oof that's pricey. Was hoping to keep it under $1000.

I do not use a "converter" I use the monitor stand in the link below together with the keyboard stand to lifk up only the monitor and keyboard/mouse while standing and still keeping the desk clear and usable. I mixed and matched parts between the 2.
Is the keyboard stand big enough for keyboard plus mouse?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Nice find!
Possibly better sales coming up?
Seems like this has been the lowest it's gone historically.

I bought the MX Keys a while ago on DDF recommendations. The keyboard is great but I have two questions.

Is there a way to change the setting so that the backlight doesn't turn on by default?

When I hold down the volume key to adjust by a significant amount, the directional change gets locked so that even after letting go the volume goes to the minimum or maximum. Tapping the key for the opposite direction doesn't work. When this happens, I have to turn off and back on. The key is not getting physically stuck–if seems to be a software issue. Anyone have a solution? Anyone have this problem?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

I am at my desk most of my day staring at computer screens.  I have 23 inch and 20 monitors, a few years old, and budget monitors, probably got them on some sale.  Has anyone in my shoes upgraded to, say, higher-end 25-27 inch monitors?  Is the difference meaningful enough?  Thanks.

Yup I did!
I sit by a computer screen from 9am to 6pm every day, and I recently bought 2 samsung 32" 4K curved monitors, they are absolutely worth every penny!!
I got them at Costco for $309 each and they are now for $359

Lol. 32 are too big for my setup. Need something smaller. And what is the benefit of curved?
