All RISE for the PRIMERO ErgoSilver Laptop Riser

sponsored review
Do you know what is one of the most common physical aches? 
Back/shoulder aches.

Not back pains from carrying heavy loads or slaving away like the olden days but back pains due to simply bad posture. Since it's a simple mistake/ error that can be done by anyone, even youths are susceptible to this. There many things that we do that does not promote good posture. I mean, who sits properly while watching TV, right?

Basically everyone I know suffers from back pain whether mild or severe and here's one of many ways to alleviate them.


It's going to be tough at first especially when you are not flexible like me and won't even able to probably lift your chest too high but try your best. The purpose of this exercise is to relax and tighten the back muscles. Eventually, you will able to go higher and decrease your back pains. Actually, I would encourage to those who don't even have back pains because prevention is better than cure right?

Anyways, it is the age of computers and especially laptops. I would say that laptops are more popular for their portability and it's a must have for every students. Every year, the students owning laptops are getting younger because of e-learning (homework via internet) as I witnessed and helped my 9 year old nephew. During my time, we would be so lucky to 'play' with the computer during IT time in primary school.

There are many ways to prevent back/shoulder aches and here's one of them. Get your hands on a laptop riser for your laptop. Now, there are so many types of laptop risers out there so how to choose? For me, I am no stranger to laptop risers and the ones I owned have cooling fans in-built because my laptop can heat up fast especially when editing videos.

But today I am going to review a different type of riser.

I have to admit, at first, I was not so hyped with this product. I am happy with my worn off (so worn off that it's embarrassing to show to people) riser/cooler and don't need a new riser. Plus, it does not have a fan but I was so glad I gave it a try.

When I opened the box, I was in awe because of the small size, sleek look and how light it was!

 PRIMERO ErgoSilver Laptop Riser
💻 Made of solid aluminium panel that help cools your laptop’s CPU
💻 Has a hole at the back to help organize your cables
💻 Equipped with rubberized silica gel pads on the top and bottom surface to increase friction and to prevent scratches on laptop
💻 Thin and sleek with its sand blasted and silver anodized surface
💻 Dimension: 26cm Length, 18.5cm Wide, 8cm High
💻 Portable and lightweight
💻 Suitable for laptops up to 17"

I know what you are thinking, the width is so small, it definitely can't fit a 17" laptop! I understand because I was thinking of the same thing because here it is with my Asus netbook that is almost 12". It barely fits. Can it really support a 17" laptop?

Well, this is my 17" Gigabyte laptop resting steadily. Of course, you have to make sure it's placed properly in it's center of gravity but the PRIMERO ErgoSilver Laptop Riser can definitely withstand it.

"But it does not have a fan to cool!"
True but believe or not, what laptops basically need is proper airflow so it does not necessarily need wind to cool unless you are doing some hardcore gaming or something lah. Plus, the aluminium helps with heat control.

 Most importantly, the angle of the riser encourages good posture.

Without a riser or a good angled one, we would strain our necks, backs and shoulders. Neck aches occur because we tend to lengthen our necks as we look down on the laptop. Back and shoulder aches because we tend to hunch over as we do our work.

With the PRIMERO ErgoSilver Laptop Riser, we are encouraged to look up straight as the laptop is at a reasonable height and since we are not looking down, we don't naturally want to slump or slouch down.

The only downside which actually boils down to personal preference and choice, I can't use the riser on my lap. I tend to use my laptop, well, on my lap (haha) but only 10% of the time so I don't have the option of using the riser when I do. It's not a deal breaker though because it's only 10% of the time.

Would I recommend the PRIMERO ErgoSilver Laptop Riser?
I sure do. It works how it had promised and it's really lightweight and sleek unlike most laptop risers out there. If looks really matter, there's nothing wrong splurging a little more.

You may get yourself one at and if a riser is something you are not looking for, they also have plenty types of laptop stands, coolers, table and monitor stand/arm.
