Adjustable Desk on Wheels

The StandDesk was created by millennials, is marketed right at millennials, and also has actually been demolished by millennials in excellent quantities. While it lugs a ten-year guarantee (the lengthiest of any kind of Chinese-made base), in this case it’s not always a reputable sign of the anticipated beneficial life of the lifting columns. But for the rate, the StandDesk is a fantastic lower-cost alternative to the UpLift, Jarvis as well as other Chinese-made workdesks. Regardless of its security concerns this is a far better product than the Autonomous SmartDesk or IKEA Bekant might ever intend to be, and a good value in general. It’s the mid-priced offering in the wide group of Chinese-made workdesks that is gaining customers from both its cheaper and also pricier peers.

StandDesk Construction, Configuration, and also Devices

Building the desk is rather straight forward if you adhere to the in-depth directions. All of the screws, screws, washing machines, and also springtime washing machines can be found in separate bags that are marked with their destination: table top, structure, and also spares. There’s an included hex device for fastening all of the bolts into the framework, or, pop in a hex bit right into your power device– simply take care not to over-tighten.

All of the parts have an excellent quality surface to them with rounded edges to avoid cut hands. Below is a shot of all the screws that are secured to the leg setting up– it’s not going anywhere!


The foot setting up additionally includes height-adjustable turning gears to stabilize the front-to-back activity of the desk, which was extremely practical for the carpeted home office floor. I’m also utilizing a flooring mat to protect the carpeting from chair wheel damages at resting height, and also push the chair back when I’m transitioning to standing height.


The deluxe controller deserved the investment. The buttons are all variable pressure programmed, suggesting the backwards and forwards arrowheads will readjust the elevation by 1/10th of an inch with a single press, or continuously readjust the height by around 0.7 inches per 2nd if you hold the button for two secs. The memory switches are similar in style: push to recall the elevation setup, or hold the button down for five secs to save a new elevation worth. I’m making use of switch 1 for my sitting placement and also switch 4 for my standing position, which provides me 2 and 3 for anything I could need in the future.


Using my Standdesk

I have actually been using the brand-new desk for a few weeks as well as have written down my initial impacts:

The motors are quiet however can be listened to in the following space over. It takes possibly 25 secs for the desk to totally shift from sitting to standing based upon my presets.
I utilize an Ergotron side-by-side check arm (specifically this LX model), causing the desk to get a little rocky when I change my weight versus the keyboard. In hindsight, I ought to have acquired the crossbar upgrade for my desk after determining the weight of my monitors. If you plan to do a double display setup, obtain the crossbar.

Due to the fact that gravity presses the discs in a human spinal column, I require to raise the desk higher in the early morning and also reduced it at night.

An anti-fatigue mat is definitely important for long period of time standing. I purchased an Octagonal mat from SmartCells, making use of rubber “cells” that are visualized below.


In spite of any kind of problems I may have had with the mobile phone or the cookie-cutter style, basically every one of those concerns gotten rid of when I in fact got down to using this thing.

I really did not assume it was even possible, the StandDesk somehow takes care of to be even extra secure than the Jarvis, both at sitting as well as standing elevations. A lot of days I like to run my Jarvis at max height while pressed against my wall; not necessarily since it’s that shaky, but even if I want as much stability as I can obtain.

The StandDesk one ups the gambit also further, verifying to be just as steady by itself at standing elevation as the Jarvis is with wall support. This is all without the company’s bar addition, which they assert adds much more stability when bought as a part of the bundle deal.When it pertains to weight resistance, the StandDesk shares yet even more statistics with the Jarvis, being rated for as much as 350 pounds of weight capacity.

I’ve been making use of the desk for concerning 3 weeks now for everyday work (as well as following standing desk best practices), whether it’s inputting out reviews such as this one from our desktop computer or a laptop every now and then. The desk holds up well against non-coastered beverages, as well as the surface in addition to the desk still really feels equally as smooth as well as slick as the day I opened it despite days of sweaty wrists wresting on it and several clean downs with a rag.

Though I never ever intentionally attempt to damage any type of workdesks as well hard, throughout some lighter examinations (tossing a collection of tricks onto it from a range, for example), it still held up without a lot of noticeable indications of damage.

When I gauged the noise output of the desk while it increased from a resting setting to standing as well as back once more, it was by much the quietest we’ve tested. I could barely get it to make greater than about 9.5 dB of sound, so if your most significant problem is the whirr of your electric motor, this is definitely the one for you.

Client service

Now, usually I do not consist of much about the client service assistance of any given firm, just because I feel that in general if a product functions the method its meant to, I should not ever before have a factor to call them in the first place. And also while I wish I could claim that was the case throughout my experience with StandDesk, I just can’t complete this testimonial without stating the various, relatively endless troubles I encountered trying to get my workdesk assembled.

For starters, the desk I was sent didn’t have any type of memory mobile consisted of initially, which indicated I had no chance of actually regulating the up/down function on the desk itself. I called StandDesk regarding this issue, that got back to me around a day later on with an apology and also an assurance that a brand-new one would certainly be shipped out shortly.

Standdesk evaluation handset

The source of all our problems …
Concerning 4 days later on a mobile phone arrived in the mail. The mobile phone at first activated, yet it had not been long before I observed that none of the programmable buttons functioned, neither did the down switch, but for some factor the “memory” switch managed the down function simply great. I contacted the business once again, and also they excused the mixup as well as stated they would certainly have a new panel and also control box out to me within the week.

Over 2 weeks later my new panel and control box showed up. As soon as I mounted them both the desk finally began working the way it was intended to, yet not after virtually a month of waiting as well as back and forth with a business that couldn’t bear in mind to ship a core component of their item inside the exact same box from the start.

Points to Consider

Despite its bankable functions, this stand up desk also has its own disadvantages. Because no particular stand desk could record every one of the functions that you may need, you might think about these in your decision-making.

Lack of a Bar as requirement

Not having a stabilizing crossbar is absolutely not a deal-breaker, particularly considering several of our various other preferred desks such as the Fully Jarvis likewise don’t have one. As a matter of fact, this workdesk does have one if you want, however it is a paid add-on (a lot more on this later too).

The crossbar is seen by some as a hindrance, making it harder to place your legs conveniently listed below the desk. Others, on the other hand, discover that they supply included stability, frequently vital when workdesks are completely extended.

We have not read any issues of the security of this workdesk, so we don’t think its something to really be worried concerning, although if you actually desired a desk with a bar then we advise you take a look at the Varidesk ProDesk 60 Electric.

StandDesk does provide a separate add-on bar that you can add to the desk yourself, simply for an extra $49.95.


The security of a standing workdesk is among one of the most vital elements of these workdesks. Without a secure desk you’ll find it tough to focus, which can cause you ending up being much less thinking about making use of the desk at standing elevation. To obtain the very best return on your investment, you’ll want to more than happy when using the desk.

Due To The Fact That the StandDesk Simple is the initial workdesk that I have checked with an optional cross assistance, I will break down my stability tests into two areas. Both tests will consist of the typical front to back rocking examination as well as a left to right wobble. The first will certainly lack the cross assistance and also the second will be with it. Just to note, states that the enhancement of the cross support can increase stability by up to 15%. I have no idea how they came up with that number.

Without Cross Assistance

Left to Right: The wobble test was a various circumstance. StandDesk Simple was the second workdesk that I tested that wobbled near the bottom with weight on the desktop. The initial was the IKEA Bekant. By the time it reached 36″ the rocking activity misbehaved. Yet factor it would influence your work.

With Cross Assistance

Front to Back: Including the cross assistance does not impact the shaking activity. The StandDesk Simple started to experienced a shaking movement at 36″. By 41″ the rocking activity misbehaved.

Entrusted to Right: Including the cross support to the StandDesk boosted the wobble activity for reduced elevations. With the cross assistance the wobble motion didn’t start until you reached 35″. By 39″ the wobble motion ended up being bad.

Keep in mind: It’s extremely vital with adjustable standing workdesks to completely tighten up all hardware. If there is hardware that is not totally limited, the motion experienced when encompassed standing elevation will be exaggerated. This is especially real with a workdesk framework that consists of 32 screws, there are far a lot of points at which the desk has a possibility to relocate.

Final thought

Like all the Chinese bases we’ve checked in our laboratories, we need to narrow our referral on the StandDesk Pro to shorter users with narrower desktops, as the stability just isn’t there for a huge mass elevated high off the ground. American-made workdesks will be better fit to these applications, as well as for a rather noticeable factor. Virtually all American-made bases are made in US factories that are owned by Swedish, Danish or German firms that invented this sector, as well as their ordinary residents are a great deal taller than the ordinary Asian consumer, so they started making longer-stroke lifting legs a long period of time earlier. And also they have much more robot automation, laser-cutting devices, and sheer experience making standing workdesk bases, it goes without saying.

If you’re not also tall, don’t have an extreme amount of heavy devices on your desktop, and also do not need as well large of a workdesk, the StandDesk Pro will provide you good bang for your dollar.

All that could alter with Yu’s assured StandDesk Pro 2.0 design that he anticipates to release at some time in the future. Initially we were told we would certainly see it by June 2018. More than a year later on it has yet to emerge, and Yu states he’s had difficulty getting the item quality he needs out of several Chinese manufacturing facilities he’s tried working with. The new layout is supposedly mosting likely to be much easier to set up and also have a heftier bar layout, to name a few refinements. He states the brand-new base will certainly be used in both a “T-Leg” and also “C-Leg” arrangement, relieving our issue concerning side-load emphasizing on the lifting columns.

If this brand-new base ever before comes to market we’ll update you right here. We’re not holding our breath any kind of longer as the most recent news on the company is that Yu shut the tiny Los Angeles office and also has transferred it to join with all its various other workers in southeast Asia.

In the meantime, a brand-new $399 standing workdesk with remarkable performance has been present via the new joint venture in between US-based iMovR and China-based Eureka, the i1 electrical standing desk. While restricted in size and also color alternatives, it has taken the mantle away from StandDesk’s long-ago status as the very best standing workdesk under $400.
