The StandDesk was created by millennials, is marketed directly at millennials, and has been gobbled up by millennials in impressive volumes. While it carries a ten-year warranty (the longest of any Chinese-made base), in this instance it’s not necessarily a trusted indication of the anticipated valuable life of the lifting columns. However, for the price, the StandDesk is an excellent lower-cost option to the UpLift, Jarvis and other Chinese-made workdesks. In spite of its security issues this is a much better item than the Autonomous SmartDesk or IKEA Bekant could ever wish to be, and a good value on the whole. It’s the mid-priced offering in the broad group of Chinese-made desks that is winning over customers from both its less expensive as well as pricier peers.

StandDesk Building, Setup, and Devices

Building the desk is quite simple if you follow the detailed guidelines. Every one of the screws, bolts, washing machines, and springtime washers been available in separate bags that are noted with their location: tabletop, frame, and also spares. There’s a consisted of hex tool for securing every one of the bolts right into the framework, or, pop in a hex bit 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 fastened to the leg setting up– it’s not going anywhere!

Standdesk-Leg

The foot setting up also consists of height-adjustable rotation gears to stabilize the front-to-back motion of the desk, which was very helpful for the carpeted home office floor. I’m also using a flooring mat to protect the rug from chair wheel damages at sitting height, and also push the chair back when I’m transitioning to standing height.

Standdesk-Foot

The deluxe controller deserved the financial investment. The buttons are all variable stress programmed, indicating the backwards and forwards arrows will certainly readjust the elevation by 1/10th of an inch with a single press, or continually change the height by around 0.7 inches per 2nd if you hold the button for 2 seconds. The memory switches are comparable in design: press to remember the height setting, or hold the button down for 5 secs to save a brand-new height worth. I’m making use of button 1 for my resting placement and button 4 for my standing position, which gives me 2 as well as 3 for anything I might need in the future.

Utilizing my Standdesk

I have actually been making use of the brand-new workdesk for a couple of weeks and have documented my first impacts:

The electric motors are quiet however can be listened to in the next area over. It takes possibly 25 secs for the desk to completely transition from sitting to standing based upon my presets.
I utilize an Ergotron side-by-side keep an eye on arm (specifically this LX model), creating the desk to get a little rocky when I move my weight versus the keyboard. In hindsight, I must have acquired the crossbar upgrade for my workdesk after determining the weight of my displays. If you prepare to do a double display arrangement, obtain the crossbar.

Since gravity compresses the discs in a human spinal column, I need to increase the desk higher in the morning and reduced it at night.

An anti-fatigue mat is definitely crucial for long duration standing. I purchased an Octagonal mat from SmartCells, making use of rubber “cells” that are envisioned listed below.

Efficiency

Regardless of any type of issues I may have had with the handset or the cookie-cutter design, basically all of those worries washed away when I in fact got down to using this point.

Although I didn’t think it was also feasible, the StandDesk somehow handles to be much more steady than the Jarvis, both at resting and also standing heights. Many days I such as to run my Jarvis at max height while pushed against my wall; not always because it’s that wobbly, yet even if I desire as much security as I can obtain.

The StandDesk one ups the gambit even further, confirming to be equally as consistent on its own at standing height as the Jarvis is with wall support. This is all without the business’s bar enhancement, which they claim includes much more stability when purchased as a part of the bundle deal.When it comes to weight resistance, the StandDesk shares yet much more statistics with the Jarvis, being ranked for up to 350 pounds of weight ability.

I’ve been utilizing the desk for regarding three weeks now for daily work (and also complying with standing workdesk finest practices), whether it’s keying out reviews such as this one from our desktop computer or a laptop periodically. The desk holds up well versus non-coastered beverages, and the finish in addition to the desk still feels just as smooth as well as slick as the day I opened it despite days of sweaty wrists wresting on it and also several clean downs with a dustcloth.

I never ever purposefully attempt to damage any workdesks too hard, throughout some lighter tests (throwing a set of keys onto it from a distance, for example), it still held up without as well numerous visible indications of damages.

Last but not least, when I determined the noise result of the desk while it increased from a sitting placement to standing as well as back once again, it was by far the quietest we have actually evaluated yet. I could hardly get it to make more than about 9.5 dB of noise, so if your largest concern is the whirr of your electric motor, this is certainly the one for you.

Client service

Currently, usually I do not consist of much about the client service assistance of any provided company, just since I feel that generally if a product works the means its expected to, I should not ever have a factor to call them in the first place. And also while I wish I can claim that was the case during my experience with StandDesk, I merely can’t complete this testimonial without pointing out the numerous, seemingly countless troubles I encountered trying to obtain my desk created.

For beginners, the desk I was sent out really did not have any type of memory mobile included originally, which implied I had no chance of really controlling the up/down feature on the desk itself. I called StandDesk concerning this issue, who got back to me around a day later on with an apology as well as an assurance that a new one would certainly be shipped out quickly.

Standdesk evaluation handset

The source of all our problems …
Concerning four days later on a mobile showed up in the mail. The handset initially activated, but it wasn’t long before I discovered that none of the programmable switches worked, neither did the down switch, however, for some factor the “memory” button handled the down feature simply great. I contacted the company again, and also they excused the mixup as well as claimed they would have a new panel and also control box bent on me within the week.

Over 2 weeks later on my new panel as well as control box got here. Once I installed them both the desk finally began functioning the method it was intended to, yet not after almost a month of waiting as well as to and fro with a firm that couldn’t bear in mind to ship a core element of their item inside the exact same box from the outset.

Points to Consider

Despite its bankable attributes, this stand up desk additionally has its own disadvantages. Since no singular stand workdesk might capture all of the functions that you may need, you might consider these in your decision-making.

Absence of a Crossbar as standard

Not having a supporting bar is absolutely not a deal-breaker, specifically thinking about several of our other favored workdesks such as the Totally Jarvis also do not have one. Actually, this desk does have one if you desire, but it is a paid add-on (much more on this later too).

The crossbar is seen by some as a barrier, making it harder to put your legs pleasantly below the desk. Others, on the other hand, locate that they offer included security, typically essential when workdesks are fully extended.

We have not check out any kind of issues of the security of this workdesk, so we don’t think its something to actually be concerned concerning, although if you really wanted a desk with a bar after that we advise you take a look at the Varidesk ProDesk 60 Electric.

Conversely, StandDesk does use a different add-on crossbar that you can include in the desk on your own, just for an extra $49.95.

Security

The security of a standing workdesk is one of the most essential elements of these desks. Without a stable desk you’ll locate it difficult to concentrate, which might result in you becoming much less thinking about making use of the desk at standing height. To obtain the best return on your investment, you’ll intend to more than happy when using the desk.

Due To The Fact That the StandDesk Simple is the very first workdesk that I have actually checked with an optional cross support, I will certainly break down my stability examinations right into 2 areas. Both tests will consist of the normal front to back shaking examination as well as an entrusted to right wobble. The initial will certainly lack the cross support as well as the secondly will be with it. Just to keep in mind, StandDesk.co states that the addition of the cross support can increase stability by approximately 15%. I have no suggestion exactly how they developed that number.

Without Cross Support

Left to Right: The wobble examination was a different situation. StandDesk Simple was the 2nd desk that I checked that tottered at the bottom with weight on the desktop. The first was the IKEA Bekant. By the time it reached 36″ the shaking motion misbehaved. Yet point it would affect 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 activity at 36″. By 41″ the shaking motion was bad.

Entrusted to Right: Adding the cross support to the StandDesk boosted the wobble motion for reduced heights. With the cross assistance the wobble motion didn’t begin up until you reached 35″. By 39″ the wobble activity ended up being poor.

Keep in mind: It’s very crucial with flexible standing workdesks to completely tighten all equipment. If there is hardware that is not completely tight, the movement experienced when reached standing height will certainly be exaggerated. This is especially true with a workdesk framework that includes 32 bolts, there are much way too many points at which the desk has an opportunity to move.

Verdict

Like all the Chinese bases we have actually checked in our labs, we have to tighten our referral on the StandDesk Pro to much shorter customers with narrower desktop computers, as the stability just isn’t there for a huge mass raised high off the ground. American-made desks will be much better fit to these applications, as well as for a relatively evident factor. Basically all American-made bases are made in US factories that are had by Swedish, Danish or German firms that invented this industry, and also their average citizens are a lot taller than the ordinary Asian customer, so they started making longer-stroke training legs a long period of time back. As well as they have even more robotic automation, laser-cutting tools, as well as large experience making standing workdesk bases, it goes without saying.

If you’re not too high, do not have an excessive quantity of hefty devices on your desktop computer, as well as don’t need also large of a workdesk, the StandDesk Pro will certainly provide you excellent bang for your dollar.

All that may change with Yu’s assured StandDesk Pro 2.0 style that he expects to launch at some point in the future. Initially we were told we would certainly see it by June 2018. Greater than a year later on it has yet to appear, as well as Yu states he’s had trouble obtaining the product top quality he requires out of numerous Chinese manufacturing facilities he’s tried dealing with. The new style is apparently going to be much easier to set up as well as have a heftier bar style, to name a few refinements. He says the brand-new base will certainly be supplied in both a “T-Leg” and “C-Leg” setup, reducing our problem about side-load stressing on the training columns.

If this brand-new base ever before involves market we’ll update you here. But we’re not holding our breath any type of longer as one of the most current news on the company is that Yu closed the little Los Angeles workplace and also has actually moved it to join with all its other workers in southeast Asia.

In the meantime, a new $399 standing desk with impressive efficiency has been introduce with the brand-new joint venture in between US-based iMovR and China-based Eureka, the i1 electrical standing workdesk. While restricted in size and also shade options, it has actually taken the mantle far from StandDesk’s long-ago status as the most effective standing workdesk under $400.

Every one of the screws, bolts, washers, and also springtime washing machines come in separate bags that are marked with their destination: table top, framework, and spares. There’s a consisted of hex tool for securing all of the screws into the framework, or, pop in a hex bit into your power device– just beware not to over-tighten.

All of the components have an excellent quality coating to them with rounded corners to stay clear of cut hands. Below is a shot of all the bolts that are fastened to the leg assembly– it’s not going anywhere!

The foot setting up likewise includes height-adjustable rotation gears to maintain the front-to-back movement of the desk, which was very practical for the carpeted home office flooring. I’m additionally using a floor mat to shield the rug from chair wheel damage at sitting height, and push the chair back when I’m transitioning to standing elevation.

Standdesk-Foot

The luxurious controller was worth the financial investment. The switches are all variable pressure configured, indicating the backwards and forwards arrows will certainly readjust the elevation by 1/10th of an inch with a single press, or continually change the elevation by about 0.7 inches per second if you hold the switch for 2 secs. The memory switches are comparable in style: press to recall the elevation setup, or hold the button down for 5 secs to store a brand-new elevation worth. I’m using switch 1 for my sitting setting and also button 4 for my standing setting, which offers me 2 and 3 for anything I could need in the future.

Using my Standdesk

I’ve been making use of the brand-new desk for a few weeks and have actually made a note of my initial impressions:

The motors are quiet but can be listened to in the following area over. It takes maybe 25 secs for the desk to fully change from resting to standing based upon my presets.
I use an Ergotron side-by-side keep track of arm (particularly this LX design), triggering the desk to get a little rocky when I shift my weight against the keyboard. In hindsight, I ought to have purchased the crossbar upgrade for my workdesk after establishing the weight of my monitors. If you prepare to do a twin screen arrangement, obtain the bar.

Due to the fact that gravity compresses the discs in a human back, I require to elevate the desk greater in the early morning and also reduced it at night.

An anti-fatigue floor covering is absolutely necessary for long period of time standing. I bought an Octagonal floor covering from SmartCells, using rubber “cells” that are imagined below.

Efficiency

In spite of any kind of troubles I may have had with the phone or the cookie-cutter layout, basically every one of those issues removed as soon as I in fact got down to using this point.

I didn’t assume it was also feasible, the StandDesk somehow manages to be also more steady than the Jarvis, both at sitting and standing heights. A lot of days I such as to run my Jarvis at max height while pressed versus my wall surface; not necessarily due to the fact that it’s that shaky, however just because I desire as much security as I can get.

The StandDesk one ups the gambit also additionally, verifying to be equally as constant by itself at standing elevation as the Jarvis is with wall support. This is all without the business’s bar addition, which they claim adds even more security when purchased as a part of the bundle deal.When it comes to weight tolerance, the StandDesk shares yet a lot more statistics with the Jarvis, being rated for approximately 350 pounds of weight ability.

I’ve been making use of the desk for concerning 3 weeks currently for day-to-day work (as well as adhering to standing desk best practices), whether it’s typing out testimonials such as this one from our desktop computer or a laptop computer every so often. The desk holds up well against non-coastered beverages, and also the surface on top of the desk still really feels equally as smooth and glossy as the day I opened it in spite of days of sweaty wrists wresting on it and several wipe downs with a dustcloth.

Though I never ever deliberately try to damage any workdesks also hard, during some lighter tests (throwing a set of tricks onto it from a range, as an example), it still stood up without a lot of visible indications of damage.

Lastly, when I gauged the sound output of the desk while it increased from a sitting position to standing and also back once more, it was without a doubt the quietest we have actually checked yet. I might barely get it to make more than concerning 9.5 dB of noise, so if your most significant worry is the whirr of your electric motor, this is certainly the one for you.

Customer Service

Currently, typically I don’t include much regarding the customer service support of any offered business, only because I feel that in general if a product works the way its supposed to, I shouldn’t ever before have a factor to call them to begin with. And while I want I might claim that held true during my experience with StandDesk, I just can’t finish this review without mentioning the many, relatively unlimited problems I came across attempting to obtain my desk put together.

For beginners, the desk I was sent out didn’t have any memory phone consisted of originally, which implied I had no chance of in fact regulating the up/down feature on the desk itself. I got in touch with StandDesk about this issue, that got back to me around a day later on with an apology and also a promise that a new one would be shipped out quickly.

Absence of a Crossbar as standard

Not having a stabilizing crossbar is certainly not a deal-breaker, particularly considering several of our other favorite desks such as the Completely Jarvis also don’t have one. Actually, this workdesk does have one if you desire, but it is a paid add-on (a lot more on this later too).

The bar is seen by some as a limitation, making it tougher to put your legs pleasantly listed below the desk. Others, on the other hand, find that they give included security, usually important when desks are completely extended.

We have not review any kind of problems of the security of this desk, so we don’t assume its something to truly be concerned about, although if you truly desired a workdesk with a bar after that we advise you have a look at the Varidesk ProDesk 60 Electric.

StandDesk does provide a separate add-on bar that you can include to the workdesk on your own, just for an additional $49.95.

Security

The security of a standing workdesk is one of one of the most important aspects of these workdesks. Without a steady desk you’ll discover it tough to concentrate, which can result in you ending up being much less curious about making use of the desk at standing height. To get the most effective return on your financial investment, you’ll wish to be happy when making use of the desk.

Because the StandDesk Simple is the very first workdesk that I have actually tested with an optional cross assistance, I will certainly break down my stability examinations into two sections. Both examinations will include the regular front to back shaking examination and also a delegated appropriate wobble. The initial will certainly lack the cross assistance as well as the second will certainly be with it. Simply to keep in mind, StandDesk.co claims that the addition of the cross support can enhance stability by approximately 15%. I have no suggestion exactly how they developed that number.

Without Cross Assistance

Left to Right: The wobble test was a various situation. StandDesk Simple was the second desk that I examined that wobbled at the bottom with weight on the desktop. The initial was the IKEA Bekant. By the time it got to 36″ the rocking movement was bad. Beyond this factor it would impact your job.

With Cross Support

Front to Back: Adding the cross support does not influence the rocking activity. The StandDesk Simple started to experienced a rocking activity at 36″. By 41″ the rocking activity misbehaved.

Entrusted to Right: Including the cross support to the StandDesk enhanced the wobble movement for lower elevations. With the cross assistance the wobble motion really did not begin until you reached 35″. By 39″ the wobble movement ended up being bad.

Note: It’s very important with flexible standing desks to totally tighten all equipment. If there is hardware that is not totally tight, the activity experienced when reached standing height will be overemphasized. This is particularly true with a workdesk structure that includes 32 screws, there are much way too many factors at which the desk has an opportunity to move.

Final thought

Like all the Chinese bases we have actually checked in our laboratories, we need to narrow our recommendation on the StandDesk Pro to much shorter individuals 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 better fit to these applications, and for a fairly noticeable factor. Essentially all American-made bases are made in United States manufacturing facilities that are had by Swedish, Danish or German firms that designed this sector, and also their average residents are a great deal taller than the average Eastern customer, so they began making longer-stroke lifting legs a very long time ago. As well as they have far more robotic automation, laser-cutting devices, and also sheer experience making standing desk bases, obviously.

If you’re not too tall, don’t have an inordinate amount of hefty equipment on your desktop computer, as well as do not need too wide of a desk, the StandDesk Pro will offer you good bang for your dollar.

All that might change with Yu’s promised StandDesk Pro 2.0 style that he anticipates to release 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 materialize, as well as Yu states he’s had trouble getting the item top quality he requires out of a number of Chinese factories he’s tried collaborating with. The brand-new layout is supposedly going to be a lot easier to assemble and have a heftier crossbar design, among other refinements. He claims the new base will be used in both a “T-Leg” as well as “C-Leg” arrangement, alleviating our issue about side-load worrying on the training columns.

If this new base ever before comes to market we’ll update you here. We’re not holding our breath any kind of longer as the most recent news on the firm is that Yu shut the small Los Angeles office as well as has relocated it to join with all its other employees in southeast Asia.

In the meantime, a new $399 standing desk with outstanding efficiency has been present with the new joint venture between US-based iMovR as well as China-based Eureka, the i1 electric standing workdesk. While limited in size and also color choices, it has taken the mantle away from StandDesk’s long-ago status as the very best standing workdesk under $400.
