Desk Sit/stand

The StandDesk was developed by millennials, is marketed directly at millennials, and also has been gobbled up by millennials in remarkable volumes. While it brings a ten-year guarantee (the longest of any type of Chinese-made base), in this instance it’s not necessarily a dependable indicator of the expected useful life of the training columns. For the rate, the StandDesk is a terrific lower-cost option to the UpLift, Jarvis and various other Chinese-made desks. Regardless of its security concerns this is a far much better product than the Autonomous SmartDesk or IKEA Bekant could ever before wish to be, as well as a good value generally. It’s the mid-priced offering in the wide group of Chinese-made desks that is swaying customers from both its less expensive as well as costlier peers.

StandDesk Building, Setup, as well as Gizmos

Building the desk is rather direct if you comply with the detailed guidelines. All of the screws, bolts, washers, and spring washers been available in different bags that are noted with their location: tabletop, frame, and also spares. There’s an included hex device for attaching every one of the screws right into the structure, or, pop in a hex little bit into your power device– just beware not to over-tighten.

All of the components have an excellent quality surface to them with rounded edges to prevent 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 assembly also consists of height-adjustable rotation gears to support the front-to-back motion of the desk, which was very handy for the carpeted home office floor. I’m also utilizing a flooring mat to protect the carpeting from chair wheel damages at sitting height, as well as press the chair back when I’m transitioning to standing height.

The luxurious controller deserved the financial investment. The switches are all variable pressure programmed, indicating the up and down arrowheads will certainly change the elevation by 1/10th of an inch with a single press, or continually change the height by about 0.7 inches per second if you hold the switch for 2 secs. The memory buttons are comparable in design: push to recall the elevation setup, or hold the button down for 5 seconds to save a brand-new elevation value. I’m utilizing button 1 for my sitting setting and button 4 for my standing placement, which gives me 2 as well as 3 for anything I may need in the future.

Using my Standdesk

I have actually been using the brand-new workdesk for a few weeks as well as have documented my initial impressions:

The electric motors are quiet yet can be heard in the following space over. It takes probably 25 secs for the desk to fully change from resting to standing based on my presets.
I use an Ergotron side-by-side keep track of arm (particularly this LX design), causing the desk to get a little rocky when I change my weight against the keyboard. In hindsight, I need to have purchased the crossbar upgrade for my workdesk after establishing the weight of my screens. If you prepare to do a twin monitor setup, obtain the crossbar.

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

An anti-fatigue mat is definitely essential for long period of time standing. I bought an Octagonal mat from SmartCells, utilizing rubber “cells” that are envisioned below.

Efficiency

Regardless of any kind of issues I may have had with the handset or the cookie-cutter layout, basically all of those problems removed as soon as I actually got down to utilizing this point.

Although I didn’t assume it was also feasible, the StandDesk in some way handles to be even more steady than the Jarvis, both at resting as well as standing heights. The majority of days I like to run my Jarvis at max elevation while pressed versus my wall; not necessarily due to the fact that it’s that unsteady, but just because I desire as much security as I can get.

The StandDesk one ups the gambit also 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 business’s bar addition, which they assert adds even more security when purchased as a part of the plan deal.When it involves weight resistance, the StandDesk shares yet much more statistics with the Jarvis, being rated for approximately 350 lbs of weight capability.

I have actually been utilizing the desk for about 3 weeks now for everyday work (as well as complying with standing desk best practices), whether it’s keying out reviews like this one from our desktop or a laptop once in a while. The desk holds up well versus non-coastered drinks, as well as the coating on top of the desk still feels equally as smooth and slick as the day I opened it despite days of perspiring wrists wresting on it and multiple wipe downs with a cloth.

I never purposefully attempt to damage any type of workdesks too hard, throughout some lighter examinations (tossing a collection of keys onto it from a distance, for example), it still held up without as well lots of noticeable indicators of damage.

When I gauged the noise outcome of the desk while it rose from a resting placement to standing and also back once more, it was by much the quietest we’ve evaluated. I can hardly get it to make more than regarding 9.5 dB of noise, so if your most significant concern is the whirr of your motor, this is most definitely the one for you.

Customer support

Now, generally I do not consist of much regarding the customer service support of any kind of provided business, just because I really feel that as a whole if a product functions the means its expected to, I should not ever before have a factor to call them to begin with. As well as while I desire I might state that held true during my experience with StandDesk, I just can not complete this review without mentioning the numerous, relatively countless issues I encountered trying to get my workdesk put together.

For beginners, the desk I was sent didn’t have any type of memory handset included initially, which suggested I had no chance of really regulating the up/down feature on the desk itself. I got in touch with StandDesk regarding this issue, who returned to me around a day later on with an apology and also a pledge that a new one would be shipped quickly.

Standdesk review handset

The source of all our issues …
Concerning four days later on a phone got here in the mail. The handset originally activated, yet it had not been long before I discovered that none of the programmable buttons worked, nor did the down switch, however, for some reason the “memory” switch took care of the down feature simply fine. I called the company again, as well as they apologized for the mixup and also claimed they would certainly have a new panel as well as control box bent on me within the week.

Over 2 weeks later my brand-new panel and control box got here. When I mounted them both the desk ultimately started working the way it was expected to, yet not after virtually a month of waiting and also backward and forward with a business that could not keep in mind to ship a core element of their item inside the exact same box from the start.

Things to Consider

In spite of its bankable features, this stand workdesk additionally has its very own disadvantages. Since no singular stand workdesk could record every one of the attributes that you might require, you might take into consideration these in your decision-making.

Lack of a Bar as requirement

Not having a maintaining bar is certainly not a deal-breaker, specifically thinking about several of our other preferred workdesks such as the Completely Jarvis likewise don’t have one. This desk does have one if you desire, but it is a paid add-on (extra on this later on as well).

The crossbar is seen by some as a barrier, making it more challenging to position your legs comfortably listed below the desk. Others, on the other hand, find that they give added security, frequently important when desks are completely extended.

We have not review any type of grievances of the stability of this workdesk, so we don’t think its something to actually be worried regarding, although if you truly wanted a desk with a crossbar after that we suggest you have a look at the Varidesk ProDesk 60 Electric.

StandDesk does use a separate add-on crossbar that you can include to the workdesk on your own, simply for an extra $49.95.

Security

The security of a standing workdesk is just one of the most important facets of these workdesks. Without a steady desk you’ll find it difficult to focus, which could cause you becoming less interested in using the desk at standing elevation. To get the very best return on your financial investment, you’ll wish to be happy when utilizing the desk.

Due To The Fact That the StandDesk Simple is the very first desk that I have actually examined with an optional cross support, I will break down my security tests right into two areas. Both tests will include the normal front to back shaking examination and also an entrusted to ideal wobble. The first will certainly lack the cross support and the second will be with it. Just to note, StandDesk.co says that the enhancement of the cross assistance can boost stability by approximately 15%. I have no suggestion exactly how they came up with that number.

Without Cross Assistance

Left to Right: The wobble examination was a various circumstance. StandDesk Simple was the 2nd desk that I tested that tottered at the bottom with weight on the desktop computer. The initial was the IKEA Bekant. By the time it reached 36″ the rocking activity misbehaved. Beyond this factor it would affect your work.

With Cross Assistance

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

Delegated Right: Adding the cross support to the StandDesk boosted the wobble movement for reduced elevations. With the cross assistance the wobble motion didn’t begin till you got to 35″. By 39″ the wobble movement came to be negative.

Note: It’s really vital with flexible standing desks to fully tighten up all hardware. If there is hardware that is not entirely tight, the motion experienced when included standing elevation will be exaggerated. This is specifically true with a desk framework that includes 32 bolts, there are far a lot of points at which the desk has a possibility to move.

Conclusion

Like all the Chinese bases we’ve examined in our labs, we have to tighten our suggestion on the StandDesk Pro to shorter users with narrower desktop computers, as the security simply isn’t there for a huge mass elevated high off the ground. American-made workdesks will certainly be much better fit to these applications, and for a relatively obvious reason. Essentially all American-made bases are made in United States factories that are possessed by Swedish, Danish or German firms that developed this industry, and their typical residents are a lot taller than the ordinary Eastern consumer, so they started making longer-stroke training legs a long time back. And also they have much more robotic automation, laser-cutting devices, and large experience making standing workdesk bases, needless to say.

If you’re not too tall, do not have an inordinate amount of heavy devices on your desktop computer, as well as do not require also wide of a workdesk, the StandDesk Pro will certainly give you good bang for your buck.

All that may alter with Yu’s guaranteed StandDesk Pro 2.0 style that he anticipates to release sometime 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 emerge, and also Yu states he’s had trouble getting the item quality he requires out of numerous Chinese manufacturing facilities he’s attempted collaborating with. The brand-new design is allegedly mosting likely to be much easier to assemble and have a heftier crossbar style, among other improvements. He claims the new base will be supplied in both a “T-Leg” and “C-Leg” configuration, reducing our worry regarding side-load worrying on the lifting columns.

If this brand-new base ever involves market we’ll update you here. However we’re not holding our breath any longer as the most current news on the business is that Yu shut the tiny Los Angeles office as well as has actually moved it to join with all its other staff members in southeast Asia.

In the meantime, a brand-new $399 standing workdesk with excellent performance has actually been present via the new joint endeavor in between US-based iMovR and China-based Eureka, the i1 electric standing desk. While restricted in dimension as well as color choices, it has taken the mantle away from StandDesk’s long-ago condition as the most effective standing workdesk under $400.

I’ve been using the desk for about three weeks now for daily job (and also following standing workdesk best methods), whether it’s typing out testimonials similar to this one from our desktop or a laptop computer from time to time.

Client service

Now, typically I don’t include much about the customer support assistance of any type of given company, just since I feel that generally if a product works the method its supposed to, I should not ever before have a reason to call them to begin with. And also while I want I might state that was the case during my experience with StandDesk, I simply can not finish this testimonial without discussing the various, apparently endless troubles I experienced trying to obtain my workdesk put together.

For beginners, the desk I was sent out really did not have any memory phone consisted of initially, which indicated I had no other way of actually managing the up/down feature on the desk itself. I contacted StandDesk concerning this concern, who got back to me around a day later on with an apology and also an assurance that a new one would certainly be shipped out shortly.

Points to Take into consideration

Regardless of its bankable functions, this stand desk additionally has its very own drawbacks. Because no particular stand desk could record all of the attributes that you may require, you may think about these in your decision-making.

Lack of a Bar as standard

Not having a maintaining bar is definitely not a deal-breaker, particularly taking into consideration some of our other favored desks such as the Totally Jarvis also do not have one. In fact, this workdesk does have one if you desire, yet it is a paid add-on (more on this later on as well).

The crossbar is seen by some as a barrier, making it more challenging to position your legs easily listed below the desk. Others, on the other hand, find that they offer added security, usually critical when workdesks are totally prolonged.

We have not read any complaints of the security of this desk, so we don’t believe its something to truly be concerned concerning, although if you really wanted a desk with a bar after that we advise you have a look at the Varidesk ProDesk 60 Electric.

Without a stable desk you’ll discover it tough to focus, which could bring about you coming to be less interested in making use of the desk at standing height. To obtain the best return on your financial investment, you’ll want to more than happy when using the desk.

Because the StandDesk Simple is the initial workdesk that I have tested with an optional cross assistance, I will break down my security tests right into 2 areas. Both examinations will consist of the normal front to back shaking test and a left to right wobble. The initial will lack the cross support and the second will certainly be with it. Simply to keep in mind, StandDesk.co states that the addition of the cross assistance can boost security by as much as 15%. I have no concept just how they developed that number.

Without Cross Assistance

Left to Right: The wobble test was a different situation. StandDesk Simple was the 2nd workdesk that I tested that tottered near the bottom with weight on the desktop computer. The initial was the IKEA Bekant. By the time it got to 36″ the shaking motion misbehaved. Beyond this factor it would affect your work.

With Cross Support

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

Delegated Right: Including the cross support to the StandDesk enhanced the wobble activity for lower elevations. With the cross assistance the wobble motion didn’t start till you got to 35″. By 39″ the wobble motion came to be bad.

Final thought

Like all the Chinese bases we’ve tested in our labs, we need to tighten our referral on the StandDesk Pro to shorter customers with narrower desktops, as the security just isn’t there for a big mass raised high off the ground.

However if you’re not too tall, do not have an extreme quantity of heavy tools on your desktop, and also don’t require as well wide of a desk, the StandDesk Pro will certainly provide you good value.

All that could transform with Yu’s assured StandDesk Pro 2.0 design that he anticipates to launch at some time in the future. Originally we were informed we would certainly see it by June 2018. Greater than a year later on it has yet to materialize, as well as Yu states he’s had problem obtaining the product top quality he needs out of a number of Chinese factories he’s attempted collaborating with.

Absence of a Bar as requirement

Not having a stabilizing bar is definitely not a deal-breaker, especially taking into consideration some of our other preferred workdesks such as the Fully Jarvis likewise do not have one.

Security

The stability of a standing desk is one of one of the most essential facets of these desks. Without a steady workdesk you’ll discover it difficult to concentrate, which can cause you becoming less interested in using the desk at standing elevation. To obtain the best return on your financial investment, you’ll wish to be happy when making use of the desk.

Since the StandDesk Simple is the first desk that I have actually tested with an optional cross assistance, I will certainly break down my security examinations into two areas.

Simply to keep in mind, StandDesk.co says that the enhancement of the cross support can raise security by approximately 15%. I have no suggestion just how they created that number.

If there is equipment that is not completely limited, the movement experienced when extended to standing elevation will be exaggerated. This is specifically real with a desk structure that includes 32 screws, there are much too many points at which the desk has a possibility to relocate.

Final thought

Like all the Chinese bases we have actually evaluated in our labs, we need to narrow our suggestion on the StandDesk Pro to much shorter individuals with narrower desktops, as the stability just isn’t there for a large mass raised high off the ground. American-made desks will be better fit to these applications, as well as for a relatively evident factor. Virtually all American-made bases are made in United States manufacturing facilities that are owned by Swedish, Danish or German business that invented this industry, and their typical residents are a lot taller than the average Asian customer, so they started making longer-stroke lifting legs a long time ago. And they have even more robotic automation, laser-cutting devices, as well as large experience making standing workdesk bases, needless to say.

If you’re not as well tall, don’t have an inordinate quantity of heavy equipment on your desktop computer, as well as don’t need as well large of a workdesk, the StandDesk Pro will give you excellent bang for your buck.

All that might transform with Yu’s promised StandDesk Pro 2.0 design that he anticipates to launch at some point in the future. Initially we were told we ‘d see it by June 2018. Greater than a year later it has yet to materialize, and also Yu states he’s had difficulty getting the product top quality he requires out of several Chinese manufacturing facilities he’s tried dealing with. The brand-new design is apparently mosting likely to be a lot easier to put together and have a heftier crossbar layout, to name a few improvements. He claims the new base will certainly be offered in both a “T-Leg” and also “C-Leg” setup, alleviating our concern about side-load emphasizing on the lifting columns.

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

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

Desk Sit Stand

The StandDesk was produced by millennials, is marketed directly at millennials, as well as has been gobbled up by millennials in impressive quantities. While it lugs a ten-year guarantee (the longest of any type of Chinese-made base), in this case it’s not always a dependable sign of the anticipated useful life of the training columns. For the cost, the StandDesk is a great lower-cost choice to the UpLift, Jarvis and also various other Chinese-made desks. Despite its security problems this is a much better item than the Autonomous SmartDesk or IKEA Bekant might ever want to be, and also a good value in general. It’s the mid-priced offering in the wide group of Chinese-made desks that is winning over customers from both its less expensive and pricier peers.

StandDesk Building And Construction, Configuration, and also Gizmos

Building the desk is quite easy if you follow the comprehensive directions. Every one of the screws, screws, washing machines, and spring washers come in different bags that are marked with their location: tabletop, structure, as well as spares. There’s a consisted of hex tool for attaching every one of the screws into the structure, or, appear a hex bit into your power device– simply be careful not to over-tighten.

All of the parts have a premium quality coating to them with rounded corners to avoid cut hands. Below is a shot of all the bolts that are secured to the leg assembly– it’s not going anywhere!

Standdesk-Leg

The foot setting up likewise includes height-adjustable turning equipments to stabilize the front-to-back activity of the desk, which was very helpful for the carpeted home office floor. I’m likewise using a flooring mat to safeguard the carpeting from chair wheel damage at resting elevation, as well as press the chair when I’m transitioning to standing height.

Standdesk-Foot

The luxurious controller was worth the investment. The buttons are all variable stress set, indicating the backwards and forwards arrowheads will change the height by 1/10th of an inch with a solitary press, or continuously readjust the height by about 0.7 inches per 2nd if you hold the button for 2 seconds. The memory switches are comparable in style: push to recall the elevation setup, or hold the button down for 5 seconds to save a new height value. I’m making use of button 1 for my resting setting and button 4 for my standing setting, which gives me 2 as well as 3 for anything I might require in the future.

Utilizing my Standdesk

I have actually been using the brand-new desk for a few weeks and also have actually documented my preliminary perceptions:

The motors are quiet yet can be heard in the following area over. It takes probably 25 secs for the desk to fully transition from sitting to standing based upon my presets.
I utilize an Ergotron side-by-side check arm (especially this LX version), causing the desk to obtain a little rough when I move my weight against the keyboard. In hindsight, I ought to have purchased the crossbar upgrade for my desk after figuring out the weight of my displays. If you prepare to do a twin monitor setup, get the crossbar.

Because gravity presses the discs in a human spinal column, I need to raise the desk greater in the early morning as well as lower it in the evening.

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

Performance

Regardless of any kind of problems I may have had with the mobile phone or the cookie-cutter design, virtually all of those worries washed away once I in fact got down to utilizing this point.

Although I didn’t think it was also possible, the StandDesk in some way manages to be a lot more steady than the Jarvis, both at sitting and also standing elevations. A lot of days I like to run my Jarvis at max height while pressed against my wall; not necessarily because it’s that shaky, yet even if I want as much stability as I can obtain.

The StandDesk one ups the gambit even better, confirming to be equally as steady on its own at standing elevation as the Jarvis is with wall support. This is all without the firm’s bar enhancement, which they declare includes a lot more stability when bought as a part of the bundle deal.When it comes to weight resistance, the StandDesk shares yet a lot more statistics with the Jarvis, being ranked for up to 350 lbs of weight capability.

I’ve been making use of the desk for regarding three weeks currently for everyday work (as well as adhering to standing desk finest practices), whether it’s keying out testimonials like this one from our desktop computer or a laptop computer every so often. The desk holds up well versus non-coastered beverages, and also the finish in addition to the desk still really feels just as smooth as well as slick as the day I opened it despite days of perspiring wrists wresting on it and multiple clean downs with a dustcloth.

Though I never ever purposefully attempt to damage any type of workdesks also hard, during some lighter tests (tossing a set of tricks onto it from a range, as an example), it still held up without a lot of noticeable indications of damage.

When I gauged the noise output of the workdesk while it rose from a resting setting to standing and back once more, it was by much the quietest we have actually examined. I could hardly get it to make greater than regarding 9.5 dB of noise, so if your largest issue is the whirr of your electric motor, this is most definitely the one for you.

Customer support

Now, generally I don’t include much regarding the customer support assistance of any given firm, just since I feel that in general if a product functions the method its expected to, I shouldn’t ever have a reason to call them to begin with. And while I wish I could state that held true throughout my experience with StandDesk, I merely can’t complete this review without stating the countless, relatively countless troubles I encountered attempting to get my desk assembled.

For starters, the desk I was sent really did not have any type of memory handset included originally, which meant I had no way of really controlling the up/down feature on the desk itself. I contacted StandDesk regarding this issue, that returned to me around a day later with an apology and also a guarantee that a new one would certainly be shipped shortly.

Standdesk evaluation handset

The source of all our troubles …
Concerning four days later on a mobile arrived in the mail. The mobile phone at first turned on, but it had not been long before I discovered that none of the programmable buttons worked, neither did the down switch, but for some reason the “memory” button dealt with the down function simply great. I spoke to the firm once again, and also they apologized for the mixup and claimed they would have a new panel and control box bent on me within the week.

Over two weeks later on my new panel and control box showed up. When I installed them both the desk ultimately began working the way it was meant to, however not after practically a month of waiting and back and forth with a company that could not keep in mind to ship a core part of their item inside the same box from the get-go.

Points to Consider

Despite its bankable attributes, this stand desk also has its own disadvantages. Because no single stand desk might catch every one of the attributes that you may need, you might think about these in your decision-making.

Absence of a Crossbar as standard

Not having a maintaining bar is certainly not a deal-breaker, particularly thinking about some of our various other preferred workdesks such as the Totally Jarvis also do not have one. This workdesk does have one if you desire, yet it is a paid add-on (a lot more on this later as well).

The crossbar is seen by some as a barrier, making it more difficult to position your legs pleasantly below the desk. Others, on the other hand, locate that they supply included stability, typically important when desks are totally extended.

We have not review any type of problems of the security of this desk, so we don’t think its something to really be worried regarding, although if you really wanted a workdesk with a crossbar then we advise you have a look at the Varidesk ProDesk 60 Electric.

StandDesk does supply a different add-on crossbar that you can add to the desk on your own, just for an extra $49.95.

Security

The stability of a standing desk is one of one of the most crucial elements of these workdesks. Without a secure desk you’ll discover it difficult to focus, which might bring about you coming to be less interested in making use of the desk at standing height. To get the most effective return on your investment, you’ll wish to enjoy when utilizing 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 break down my security examinations right into two sections. Both tests will consist of the normal front to back rocking test and a delegated right wobble. The first will lack the cross support as well as the second will be with it. Just to note, StandDesk.co says that the enhancement of the cross assistance can increase security by approximately 15%. I have no idea how they thought of that number.

Without Cross Assistance

Left to Right: The wobble test was a various situation. StandDesk Simple was the second desk that I evaluated that wobbled near the bottom with weight on the desktop. The very first was the IKEA Bekant. By the time it got to 36″ the shaking movement misbehaved. Beyond this point it would certainly influence your job.

With Cross Assistance

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

Left to Right: Adding the cross assistance to the StandDesk boosted the wobble movement for lower elevations. With the cross assistance the wobble movement really did not begin up until you got to 35″. By 39″ the wobble activity became negative.

Note: It’s really crucial with adjustable standing desks to totally tighten all equipment. If there is equipment that is not completely limited, the motion experienced when encompassed standing height will be overemphasized. This is particularly true with a desk framework that consists of 32 bolts, there are much too many points at which the desk has a chance to move.

Final thought

Like all the Chinese bases we’ve evaluated in our laboratories, we need to narrow our recommendation on the StandDesk Pro to shorter individuals with narrower desktop computers, as the security simply isn’t there for a big mass elevated high off the ground. American-made desks will certainly be better matched to these applications, as well as for a relatively noticeable factor. Basically all American-made bases are made in US manufacturing facilities that are owned by Swedish, Danish or German companies that developed this sector, and also their average citizens are a great deal taller than the ordinary Asian consumer, so they began making longer-stroke lifting legs a very long time ago. And also they have far more robot automation, laser-cutting equipment, as well as large experience making standing desk bases, it goes without saying.

If you’re not also tall, don’t have an excessive amount of hefty equipment on your desktop computer, and also do not require too vast of a desk, the StandDesk Pro will certainly give you good bang for your buck.

All that may change with Yu’s promised StandDesk Pro 2.0 layout that he expects to launch sometime in the future. Originally we were told we would certainly see it by June 2018. More than a year later it has yet to materialize, and also Yu states he’s had trouble obtaining the item quality he requires out of numerous Chinese factories he’s attempted collaborating with. The brand-new layout is allegedly mosting likely to be a lot easier to assemble as well as have a heftier crossbar design, to name a few refinements. He states the brand-new base will be offered in both a “T-Leg” as well as “C-Leg” setup, reducing our problem concerning side-load stressing on the training columns.

If this new base ever involves market we’ll update you right here. But we’re not holding our breath any longer as the most current information on the business is that Yu shut the small Los Angeles office and has moved it to accompany all its various other staff members in southeast Asia.

In the meantime, a new $399 standing workdesk with outstanding performance has been introduce through the brand-new joint endeavor between US-based iMovR as well as China-based Eureka, the i1 electrical standing workdesk. While restricted in dimension and color alternatives, it has taken the mantle far from StandDesk’s long-ago standing as the best standing desk under $400.
