Is a standard keyboard tray ergonomic, like the ones found in generic Staples computer desks?

enter image description here

Or is it better to have a larger desk with room for both the monitor and keyboard to rest?

depends, whats your definition of "standard" I had one that was quite ergonomic and even had a little notch to hold a pad to rest your wrist on. Also the height of the desk and tray play a important role in this. – Not Kyle stop stalking me Apr 19 '11 at 16:59
The one that comes with those cheapo staples computer desks. :) – TheOne Apr 19 '11 at 17:00
Can you provide a photo of one? – Daniel Beck Apr 19 '11 at 17:03
I don't see image, only blank space – Templar Apr 19 '11 at 17:06
@Templar You might need to reload -- that worked for me. – Daniel Beck Apr 19 '11 at 17:11

This will depend on the user and the chair. While the tray may work, it may not, as each case is different. An adjustable tray and mouse shelf combined with a good, fully adjustable chair will work well in most cases.

What chair could you recommend to go with that type of desk? – TheOne Apr 19 '11 at 17:24
I would definitely say that you should always go with an adjustable keyboard tray. They are truly wonderful things, but unfortunately a bit pricey. – jcrawfordor Apr 19 '11 at 19:11
Chair is a really personal choice. Seat depth, back height and all the various adjustments are something you need to try. – Dave M Apr 19 '11 at 19:27
