The StandDesk was developed by millennials, is marketed directly at millennials, and also has been demolished by millennials in impressive volumes. While it carries a ten-year guarantee (the lengthiest of any Chinese-made base), in this situation it’s not necessarily a dependable sign of the expected useful life of the lifting columns. However, for the cost, the StandDesk is an excellent lower-cost choice to the UpLift, Jarvis as well as other Chinese-made desks. In spite of its security problems this is a much better product than the Autonomous SmartDesk or IKEA Bekant could ever hope to be, and a good value on the whole. It’s the mid-priced offering in the wide category of Chinese-made workdesks that is gaining customers from both its less expensive and also more expensive peers.

StandDesk Building, Setup, as well as Gizmos

Building the desk is quite simple if you follow the in-depth instructions. All of the screws, bolts, washers, and spring washers can be found in different bags that are marked with their location: tabletop, framework, as well as spares. There’s an included hex tool for fastening all of the bolts into the framework, or, appear a hex little bit right into your power device– simply be careful not to over-tighten.

All of the components have a premium quality coating to them with rounded corners to avoid cut hands. Below is a shot of all the screws that are fastened to the leg setting up– it’s not going anywhere!


The foot assembly also includes height-adjustable rotation gears to support the front-to-back movement of the desk, which was very helpful for the carpeted home office flooring. I’m additionally making use of a floor mat to protect the rug from chair wheel damages at sitting elevation, and also press the chair back when I’m transitioning to standing elevation.


The deluxe controller deserved the financial investment. The switches are all variable pressure configured, indicating the up and down arrows will change the elevation by 1/10th of an inch with a single press, or constantly change the height by around 0.7 inches per second if you hold the switch for 2 secs. The memory buttons are comparable in design: push to recall the height setting, or hold the button down for 5 seconds to keep a new height value. I’m utilizing switch 1 for my sitting position and button 4 for my standing setting, which provides me 2 and also 3 for anything I may require in the future.


Using my Standdesk

I have actually been utilizing the brand-new workdesk for a couple of weeks and have actually listed my preliminary impacts:

The electric motors are quiet but can be listened to in the next space over. It takes possibly 25 secs for the desk to completely shift from resting to standing based upon my presets.
I utilize an Ergotron side-by-side keep an eye on arm (especially this LX design), causing the desk to get a little rocky when I move my weight versus the key-board. In knowledge, I need to have bought the bar upgrade for my desk after figuring out the weight of my screens. If you plan to do a twin monitor setup, get the bar.

Due to the fact that gravity presses the discs in a human back, I need to elevate the desk higher in the morning and reduced it at night.

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


In spite of any kind of issues I might have had with the mobile or the cookie-cutter design, basically all of those issues gotten rid of when I in fact came down to using this point.

Although I didn’t think it was also possible, the StandDesk in some way manages to be much more stable than the Jarvis, both at sitting and standing heights. A lot of days I such as to run my Jarvis at max height while pushed versus my wall surface; not necessarily due to the fact that it’s that unsteady, yet just because I desire as much security as I can get.

The StandDesk one ups the gambit even further, showing to be just as steady on its own at standing height as the Jarvis is with wall support. This is all without the company’s crossbar enhancement, which they claim includes a lot more security when bought as a part of the plan deal.When it involves weight tolerance, the StandDesk shares yet a lot more statistics with the Jarvis, being ranked for as much as 350 lbs of weight capability.

I’ve been using the desk for concerning 3 weeks currently for daily work (and also complying with standing desk ideal practices), whether it’s inputting out reviews similar to this one from our desktop or a laptop computer periodically. The desk stands up well versus non-coastered drinks, and also the coating in addition to the desk still feels just as smooth and slick as the day I opened it regardless of days of perspiring wrists wresting on it and several wipe downs with a dustcloth.

Though I never deliberately attempt to damage any kind of desks as well hard, throughout some lighter tests (tossing a set of tricks onto it from a distance, for example), it still stood up without too many visible signs of damage.

When I gauged the sound result of the workdesk while it climbed from a sitting setting to standing and back again, it was by much the quietest we have actually checked. I could hardly get it to make greater than about 9.5 dB of noise, so if your biggest concern is the whirr of your electric motor, this is definitely the one for you.

Customer support

Now, normally I don’t include much concerning the client service assistance of any type of offered business, just because I feel that generally if a product functions the means its supposed to, I should not ever before have a reason to call them in the first place. And while I want I could claim that was the case during my experience with StandDesk, I merely can not complete this evaluation without pointing out the various, relatively endless problems I experienced attempting to get my workdesk created.

For beginners, the desk I was sent really did not have any type of memory mobile included originally, which indicated I had no way of in fact managing the up/down feature on the desk itself. I contacted StandDesk regarding this concern, that got back to me around a day later on with an apology and also a guarantee that a new one would certainly be shipped soon.

Standdesk review handset

The resource of all our issues …
About 4 days later a mobile phone got here in the mail. The handset originally turned on, however it wasn’t long before I saw that none of the programmable buttons functioned, neither did the down switch, however, for some reason the “memory” button handled the down function simply great. I called the business once again, and also they apologized for the mixup and claimed they would certainly have a new panel and control box bent on me within the week.

Over 2 weeks later on my brand-new panel and also control box got here. As soon as I installed them both the desk finally started functioning the method it was expected to, but not after nearly a month of waiting as well as backward and forward with a firm that could not bear in mind to deliver a core part of their item inside the same box from the beginning.

Things to Think about

In spite of its bankable attributes, this stand up workdesk additionally has its own disadvantages. Given that no particular stand workdesk could capture every one of the attributes that you may require, you might think about these in your decision-making.

Lack of a Bar as requirement

Not having a stabilizing bar is absolutely not a deal-breaker, specifically thinking about several of our other favored workdesks such as the Completely Jarvis also don’t have one. This desk does have one if you desire, yet it is a paid add-on (more on this later too).

The bar is seen by some as a barrier, making it harder to place your legs pleasantly below the desk. Others, on the other hand, discover that they supply added stability, commonly essential when desks are fully expanded.

We have not review any kind of complaints of the stability of this workdesk, so we do not believe its something to really be concerned about, although if you actually desired a workdesk with a bar then we recommend you have a look at the Varidesk ProDesk 60 Electric.

StandDesk does offer a different add-on bar that you can include to the workdesk on your own, just for an added $49.95.


The security of a standing desk is among the most crucial facets of these desks. Without a secure desk you’ll locate it hard to concentrate, which might bring about you ending up being less thinking about making use of the desk at standing height. To get the best return on your financial investment, you’ll intend to more than happy when using the desk.

Due To The Fact That the StandDesk Simple is the initial workdesk that I have evaluated with an optional cross assistance, I will certainly break down my stability examinations into 2 sections. Both tests will certainly include the common front to back shaking test as well as a left to appropriate wobble. The very first will certainly lack the cross assistance and the second will be with it. Simply to keep in mind, claims that the addition of the cross assistance can boost security by as much as 15%. I have no idea just how they generated that number.

Without Cross Support

Left to Right: The wobble examination was a various circumstance. StandDesk Simple was the second workdesk that I checked that wobbled at the bottom with weight on the desktop. The very first was the IKEA Bekant. By the time it reached 36″ the rocking motion was bad. Beyond this factor it would certainly influence your job.

With Cross Support

Front to Back: Including the cross support does not influence the shaking movement. The StandDesk Simple began to experienced a shaking movement at 36″. By 41″ the shaking motion was bad.

Delegated Right: Including the cross assistance to the StandDesk enhanced the wobble activity for lower elevations. With the cross assistance the wobble movement didn’t begin till you got to 35″. By 39″ the wobble activity became poor.

Note: It’s very crucial with flexible standing desks to fully tighten all hardware. If there is hardware that is not entirely tight, the activity experienced when reached standing height will be exaggerated. This is specifically true with a workdesk frame that consists of 32 bolts, there are far too many points at which the desk has a chance to relocate.


Like all the Chinese bases we have actually tested in our laboratories, we need to tighten our referral on the StandDesk Pro to much shorter users with narrower desktops, as the security simply isn’t there for a big mass elevated high off the ground. American-made workdesks will certainly be better fit to these applications, as well as for a rather apparent factor. Practically all American-made bases are made in United States factories that are owned by Swedish, Danish or German business that created this market, and also their typical residents are a lot taller than the ordinary Oriental consumer, so they started making longer-stroke training legs a long time back. As well as they have far more robot automation, laser-cutting devices, and large experience making standing desk bases, needless to say.

If you’re not also tall, don’t have an extreme quantity of hefty equipment on your desktop, as well as do not need as well wide of a desk, the StandDesk Pro will certainly give you excellent bang for your dollar.

All that might change with Yu’s promised StandDesk Pro 2.0 style that he expects to release at some point in the future. Initially we were informed we ‘d see it by June 2018. More than a year later on it has yet to emerge, as well as Yu states he’s had problem obtaining the item top quality he requires out of a number of Chinese manufacturing facilities he’s tried collaborating with. The brand-new layout is apparently going to be a lot easier to put together and have a heftier bar design, among other improvements. He states the new base will be used in both a “T-Leg” as well as “C-Leg” configuration, alleviating our problem about side-load emphasizing on the training columns.

If this brand-new base ever before comes to market we’ll upgrade you right here. We’re not holding our breath any longer as the most current information on the company is that Yu closed the tiny Los Angeles office and also has actually transferred it to join with all its other staff members in southeast Asia.

In the meantime, a new $399 standing desk with excellent efficiency has actually been present via the new joint endeavor between US-based iMovR as well as China-based Eureka, the i1 electric standing desk. While restricted in size and also shade options, it has taken the mantle far from StandDesk’s long-ago status as the best standing workdesk under $400.
