Arm Black

The StandDesk was created by millennials, is marketed right at millennials, and has actually been gobbled up by millennials in impressive volumes. While it brings a ten-year guarantee (the longest of any Chinese-made base), in this case it’s not always a reliable indicator of the anticipated beneficial life of the training columns. For the price, the StandDesk is an excellent lower-cost option to the UpLift, Jarvis and various other Chinese-made desks. In spite of its security concerns this is a far better product than the Autonomous SmartDesk or IKEA Bekant might ever before hope to be, as well as a good value in general. It’s the mid-priced offering in the broad classification of Chinese-made workdesks that is gaining clients from both its less costly as well as costlier peers.

StandDesk Building And Construction, Configuration, and also Devices

Constructing the desk is rather simple if you adhere to the comprehensive instructions. All of the screws, bolts, washing machines, and also spring washers can be found in separate bags that are marked with their destination: tabletop, frame, and spares. There’s an included hex device for fastening every one of the bolts right into the frame, or, appear a hex little bit right into your power device– just be careful not to over-tighten.

All of the parts have a top quality surface to them with rounded edges to stay clear of cut hands. Below is a shot of all the bolts that are attached to the leg assembly– it’s not going anywhere!


The foot assembly likewise consists of height-adjustable rotation gears to support the front-to-back movement of the desk, which was very handy for the carpeted home office flooring. I’m also utilizing a flooring mat to shield the carpet from chair wheel damages at resting elevation, and push the chair when I’m transitioning to standing elevation.


The luxurious controller was worth the investment. The buttons are all variable stress programmed, suggesting the up and down arrowheads will readjust the height by 1/10th of an inch with a solitary press, or continually readjust the elevation by around 0.7 inches per 2nd if you hold the button for 2 seconds. The memory buttons are comparable in layout: press to remember the elevation setup, or hold the button down for 5 seconds to save a brand-new height worth. I’m using switch 1 for my resting placement and button 4 for my standing setting, which offers me 2 and also 3 for anything I could need in the future.


Using my Standdesk

I have actually been making use of the new desk for a couple of weeks and have actually written down my initial perceptions:

The motors are quiet but can be heard in the following room over. It takes probably 25 secs for the desk to fully shift from sitting to standing based on my presets.
I make use of an Ergotron side-by-side keep track of arm (specifically this LX design), causing the desk to obtain a little rough when I move my weight against the key-board. In knowledge, I ought to have acquired the crossbar upgrade for my desk after figuring out the weight of my screens. If you plan to do a dual monitor configuration, obtain the bar.

Since gravity presses the discs in a human spine, I need to raise the desk greater in the morning as well as reduced it at night.

An anti-fatigue mat is absolutely necessary for long duration standing. I bought an Octagonal mat from SmartCells, using rubber “cells” that are pictured listed below.


In spite of any kind of problems I might have had with the phone or the cookie-cutter design, virtually every one of those problems gotten rid of once I in fact came down to using this thing.

I really did not believe it was also possible, the StandDesk in some way takes care of to be even much more stable than the Jarvis, both at sitting and also standing elevations. Most days I such as to run my Jarvis at max height while pushed versus my wall; not necessarily since it’s that wobbly, but just because I want as much security as I can obtain.

The StandDesk one ups the gambit also additionally, showing to be equally as steady on its own at standing elevation as the Jarvis is with wall support. This is all without the company’s bar enhancement, which they declare adds a lot more security when bought as a part of the package deal.When it comes to weight tolerance, the StandDesk shares yet a lot more statistics with the Jarvis, being rated for as much as 350 pounds of weight ability.

I’ve been using the desk for about 3 weeks currently for day-to-day work (as well as adhering to standing workdesk best methods), whether it’s keying out evaluations similar to this one from our desktop or a laptop periodically. The desk holds up well versus non-coastered drinks, as well as the coating in addition to the desk still really feels just as smooth as well as glossy as the day I opened it regardless of days of perspiring wrists wresting on it as well as numerous clean downs with a rag.

I never ever deliberately try to dent any kind of workdesks also hard, throughout some lighter examinations (throwing a set of tricks onto it from a distance, for example), it still held up without as well numerous noticeable indications of damage.

When I determined the noise output of the workdesk while it climbed from a sitting placement to standing and back again, it was by far the quietest we’ve tested. I could hardly get it to make more than regarding 9.5 dB of noise, so if your biggest concern is the whirr of your motor, this is certainly the one for you.

Customer support

Currently, normally I do not consist of much regarding the customer support assistance of any type of given business, just because I feel that generally if an item functions the method its meant to, I should not ever have a reason to call them in the first place. And also while I wish I can say that was the case throughout my experience with StandDesk, I simply can’t finish this testimonial without mentioning the countless, seemingly limitless problems I came across trying to obtain my workdesk assembled.

For starters, the desk I was sent didn’t have any kind of memory mobile phone included initially, which meant I had no chance of actually controlling the up/down feature on the desk itself. I contacted StandDesk concerning this concern, who got back to me around a day later with an apology as well as a pledge that a brand-new one would be shipped shortly.

Standdesk evaluation handset

The resource of all our issues …
Concerning four days later on a mobile arrived in the mail. The mobile phone at first activated, but it wasn’t long prior to I noticed that none of the programmable buttons worked, nor did the down switch, but also for some reason the “memory” button took care of the down feature simply great. I contacted the company once more, and also they apologized for the mixup and also stated they would certainly have a new panel and control box bent on me within the week.

Over 2 weeks later my new panel and also control box arrived. Once I mounted them both the desk finally started working the way it was expected to, yet not after virtually a month of waiting and to and fro with a business that could not keep in mind to ship a core part of their item inside the exact same box from the start.

Points to Take into consideration

Regardless of its bankable functions, this stand up desk also has its very own drawbacks. Since no particular stand desk can catch all of the functions that you may require, you might think about these in your decision-making.

Absence of a Crossbar as requirement

Not having a supporting crossbar is absolutely not a deal-breaker, particularly considering several of our various other favorite workdesks such as the Totally Jarvis likewise don’t have one. Actually, this workdesk does have one if you desire, but it is a paid add-on (extra on this later also).

The bar is seen by some as a limitation, making it more difficult to position your legs comfortably below the desk. Others, on the other hand, find that they give included stability, commonly essential when desks are fully prolonged.

We have not read any complaints of the stability of this desk, so we do not assume its something to actually be concerned concerning, although if you truly desired a workdesk with a crossbar then we recommend you take a look at the Varidesk ProDesk 60 Electric.

StandDesk does use a different add-on crossbar that you can add to the workdesk yourself, simply for an extra $49.95.


The stability of a standing workdesk is one of one of the most vital elements of these workdesks. Without a secure desk you’ll locate it hard to concentrate, which might cause you ending up being much less interested in making use of the desk at standing height. To get the very best return on your financial investment, you’ll wish to enjoy when using the desk.

Because the StandDesk Simple is the initial workdesk that I have evaluated with an optional cross support, I will break down my stability examinations right into two areas. Both examinations will certainly include the normal front to back rocking examination and a left to right wobble. The very first will certainly be without the cross support and also the second will be with it. Just to keep in mind, states that the addition of the cross assistance can boost stability by as much as 15%. I have no concept exactly how they generated that number.

Without Cross Assistance

Left to Right: The wobble examination was a various circumstance. StandDesk Simple was the 2nd workdesk that I evaluated that tottered at the bottom with weight on the desktop. The initial was the IKEA Bekant. By the time it got to 36″ the shaking movement misbehaved. Yet factor it would affect your job.

With Cross Support

Front to Back: Adding the cross assistance does not affect the shaking motion. The StandDesk Simple began to experienced a shaking motion at 36″. By 41″ the shaking activity was bad.

Left to Right: Including the cross assistance to the StandDesk boosted the wobble motion for reduced elevations. With the cross support the wobble motion really did not start until you got to 35″. By 39″ the wobble activity became bad.

Note: It’s extremely crucial with adjustable standing workdesks to totally tighten all hardware. If there is hardware that is not completely tight, the activity experienced when included standing height will be overemphasized. This is specifically true with a desk frame that includes 32 screws, there are much way too many factors at which the desk has an opportunity to move.


Like all the Chinese bases we’ve evaluated in our labs, we have to tighten our recommendation on the StandDesk Pro to shorter customers with narrower desktop computers, as the security simply isn’t there for a large mass elevated high off the ground. American-made workdesks will be much better fit to these applications, and for a fairly apparent factor. Virtually all American-made bases are made in United States factories that are owned by Swedish, Danish or German firms that developed this market, as well as their average people are a whole lot taller than the ordinary Asian customer, so they began making longer-stroke lifting legs a long period of time earlier. And also they have even more robotic automation, laser-cutting equipment, as well as large experience making standing workdesk bases, it goes without saying.

If you’re not also high, don’t have an extreme amount of hefty devices on your desktop, and don’t need also vast of a workdesk, the StandDesk Pro will certainly provide you great bang for your dollar.

All that might transform with Yu’s assured StandDesk Pro 2.0 style that he anticipates to launch at some point in the future. Originally we were informed we would certainly see it by June 2018. More than a year later on it has yet to emerge, as well as Yu states he’s had difficulty obtaining the product top quality he requires out of numerous Chinese factories he’s attempted dealing with. The new design is apparently mosting likely to be a lot easier to assemble and have a heftier crossbar layout, among other improvements. He says the brand-new base will be offered in both a “T-Leg” and “C-Leg” arrangement, easing our problem concerning side-load emphasizing on the lifting columns.

If this brand-new base ever before concerns market we’ll upgrade you here. Yet we’re not holding our breath any type of longer as the most current news on the firm is that Yu shut the small Los Angeles workplace and also has transferred it to join with all its various other workers in southeast Asia.

In the meantime, a new $399 standing workdesk with impressive performance has actually been introduce through the new joint venture in between US-based iMovR and China-based Eureka, the i1 electrical standing desk. While limited in size and also color options, it has taken the mantle away from StandDesk’s long-ago standing as the best standing workdesk under $400.
