Nillkin is a Chinese tech company that produce its own branded products that are sold through nillkin.org and on Amazon. Products span a number of different categories including smartphone, tablet and smartwatch accessories. Regardless of category, Nillkin score highly for customer feedback on Amazon so we decided to try out the Nillkin Laptop Stand.
Nillkin Laptop Stand Specifications
The Nillkin laptop stand is an adjustable stand that allows users to adjust both the height and the angle. The angle can be adjusted from 0 degrees (flat) to 90 degrees. At full capacity, the Nillkin stand elevates up to 53 cm.
Designed for use on a flat surface, the Nillkin features a cooling vent that prevents overheating by dissipating heat from the laptop base.
Made from aluminium, the Nillkin is suitable for both laptops and MacBooks that measure up to 17 inches wide. It can support a weight of 12kgs which is impressive. This tells us that the stand is unlikely to come out of position when in use.
There are numerous ‘anti-slip’ pads on the Nillkin stand. Including the base, as well as the table the laptop sits on. There is also a 3 cm lip which does a good job of holding the laptop in place when the elevation pitch faces downwards. To stop any metal on metal scratching, the lips have a protective coating.
Finally, it is available in a dark grey and a brushed silver color – nice.
How to use the Nillkin Laptop Stand
The Nillkin laptop stand is really simple to use. Out of the box, the stand is set at 0 degrees elevation – flat. You’ll simply want to place the Nillkin stand onto a flat surface (ideally a desk). Ensure that the heat vents are facing upwards and gently pull the laptop table and base apart. Note that to ensure the laptop table is the right way around, you’ll need to position the vent to the rear and the lips at the front.
Once you are happy with the height you can place your laptop on the table. From here you can elevate upwards or downwards depending on your seating position.

How sturdy is it?
The Nillkin laptop stand is probably one of the most sturdy laptop stands we have reviewed. The design, flat base / flat table always perform well in our tests but the Nillkin is next level. The anti-slip pads which are located on the base of the stand, as well as on the laptop table also really help. Finally, the lips at the front of the table keep laptops in position, regardless of the elevation. Well done Nillkin.
What are others saying?
At the time of writing, the Nillkin laptop stand scored an amazing 5 out of 5 on Amazon. This is pretty rare for an adjustable laptop stand. Customers are praising the sturdiness, the design and the overall quality of the stand. It seems that no expense has been spared when manufacturing the Nillkin laptop stand.
The only sticking point is the price which is on the expensive side. The design is similar to the Urmust Laptop Stand which is $10 cheaper. However, in our view the Nillkin laptop stand is superior.
Pros & Cons
If you’re in the market for an adjustable desk stand that is built to the highest specification and comes packed with features to improve workplace ergonomics then the Nillkin ProDesk Adjustable Laptop Stand could be the one for you. It scored highly in every aspect from build quality, sturdiness, elevation settings and design.
What we absolutely loved about the Nillkin stand is the fact it is both height and angle adjustable. The maximum height of the stand is 530 cm and the angle adjusts from 0 to 90 degrees. There is no doubt that you will find a comfortable setting suitable for your favourite position.
Apart from the slightly higher price point, there is no faulting the Nillkin laptop desk.
