Jelly Comb is a fun company specializing in computer accessories and equipment. They burst onto the scene a couple of years back becoming famous for their range of super slim wireless keyboards.
In this review, we are coving the Jelly Comp Laptop Stand which is a fun take on the laptop stands we are used to reviewing. Jelly Comb is gaining such a reputation, so we were excited to try out their products.
Jelly Comb Laptop Stand specifications
The first thing you’ll notice about the Jelly Comb laptop stand is the quirky design and fun color options. Traditionalists can buy in black or grey options, but we really love the blue/grey and green options which will transform a dull-looking office space into something bright and fun. To add to the quirkiness, the stand comes fitted with two adjustable phone holders.
Don’t let this quirkiness take anything away from the Jelly Comb laptop stand, since it comes packed with features to improve workplace ergonomics. Firstly, it is a height and angle adjustable laptop stand which we love. The legs can elevate from 3.4 to 7 inches in height, and the angle alters from 0 to 43 degrees. This really helps reduce stress on the neck and back.
It’s compatible with all the major laptop manufacturers including Macbook, Google Pixelbook, Dell, and others. In fact, it is compatible with any laptop that measures up to 17 inches in width. This is a good range with the Jelly Comb even doubling up as a tablet or book stand. The Jelly Comp laptop stand measures 8.5 x 8.5 x 0.76 inches and folds up flat for easy storage/ portability. It’s also just 1.8 pounds in weight.
There is a lip on the front of the laptop table which is deep enough to keep most laptops in place. Since the main material of the stand is plastic, there are no concerns about stretching. There is also a built-in air vent on the table which helps prevent any overheating.
Finally, the stand can support a weight of 22lbs (12kg) which we found to be ample. There are also anti-slip pads located on the feet of the stand.
What is the Jelly Comb Stand like to use?
In terms of set-up, it’s all pretty logical. Once you have unpackaged the Jelly Comb stand you’ll want to unfold and lock the feet into position. You should hear a locking noise when you apply pressure downwards.
You then want to open the table and pull the metal bar on the other side downwards – you’ll need to place the bar into one of the slots. Finally, pop out the lip (where the Jelly Comb logo is) and you’re good to go. You can also pull out the phone holders which are located toward the rear of the stand.
Note that it is not always necessary to use the feet. If you need a lower higher, the feet can remain folded.
In terms of performance, the Jelly Comb stand did pretty well. It’s generally a very sturdy laptop holder with good elevation/ height options. However, we did find that for larger laptops, the lip at the front was not always deep enough meaning they are prone to movement.
Also for micro or much smaller laptops, there was also some movement. We think this is in part down to the plastic material which is not as robust as aluminum.
We also noted on some of the imagery on Amazon that keyboards were stored under the stand. Please note that these images are for demonstration purposes only. We tried operating the keyboard in this position and it is completely impractical.
Pros and Cons
What are others saying?
On the whole, the majority of reviews for the Jelly Comb laptop stand are positive. Customers praise the ergonomic features of the stand and the fact their necks and backs are no longer uncomfortable. There is also lots of praise for the sturdiness of the Jelly Comb laptop stand when in use.
Value for money
The price of the stand is another talking point. For a mid-ranged laptop stand, customers feel they are getting good value for money with the Jelly Comb. Especially as it comes with so many features including phone holders, air vent, and the adjustable height and angle.
On the flip side, there were some disgruntled customers who called out some of the issues we reported. To recap: plastic is a cheaper material and general concerns about the movement of laptops. It should be noted that these are very isolated comments.
Our testing is extremely robust and we do call out that for the vast majority of customers there will be no issues with the Jelly Comb.
Should you buy the Jelly Comb laptop stand?
If you’re looking for a fun mid-ranged laptop stand that comes with all the features you’re likely to need then yes you should buy.
On the whole, the Jelly Comb stand is really impressive. For around $25, you are getting a lot of features for the money. The color options are unique and as noted above, these will add character to your office. We also liked the portability of the Jelly Comb stand, it is super lightweight and folds down flat.
It should be noted that there are better-performing laptop stands on the market. For an extra $10 – $15, you can buy a stand that supports more weight, has more height and angle adjustability, and is made from aluminum which gives a more premium look and feel.

In the end, it’s all down to personal preference but the Jelly Comb laptop stand does come recommended.
