The swiveling keyboard tray is a rare feature that adds immensely to the working experience. See More
The Omega Everest has a separate 19.5 x 10.5-inch keyboard tray that rotates a full 90°. This ensures a more comfortable experience and increases your typing speed and accuracy. Special pegs on its surface make sure that the keyboard doesn't slide down. It's also very stable owing to the fact that it's mounted near the desk's crossbars and therefore doesn't shake much.

The adjusting mechanism itself works almost as quickly as on some $1000+ desks.
