Martin Furniture Kensington Double Pedestal Executive Desk – Fully Assembled

The StandDesk was produced by millennials, is marketed right at millennials, and also has been gobbled up by millennials in impressive quantities. While it brings a ten-year service warranty (the longest of any Chinese-made base), in this case it’s not necessarily a reputable sign of the expected beneficial life of the lifting columns. But for the price, the StandDesk is a wonderful lower-cost choice to the UpLift, Jarvis and other Chinese-made desks. Regardless of its stability problems this is a much better item than the Autonomous SmartDesk or IKEA Bekant can ever intend to be, and a good value generally. It’s the mid-priced offering in the wide classification of Chinese-made desks that is gaining customers from both its cheaper and costlier peers.

StandDesk Building, Setup, and Gadgets

Building the desk is quite straight forward if you adhere to the detailed guidelines. All of the screws, bolts, washing machines, and also spring washers can be found in different bags that are noted with their destination: tabletop, frame, as well as spares. There’s an included hex tool for attaching every one of the screws into the structure, or, appear a hex bit into your power tool– simply take care not to over-tighten.

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

Standdesk-Leg

The foot assembly additionally includes height-adjustable rotation equipments to maintain the front-to-back activity of the desk, which was extremely handy for the carpeted home office floor. I’m additionally using a flooring mat to protect the carpeting from chair wheel damage at resting height, and press the chair when I’m transitioning to standing elevation.

Standdesk-Foot

The luxurious controller deserved the investment. The switches are all variable pressure programmed, indicating the up and down arrows will certainly readjust the elevation by 1/10th of an inch with a single press, or constantly adjust the elevation by about 0.7 inches per second if you hold the button for 2 secs. The memory switches are similar in layout: press to remember the elevation setup, or hold the button down for five seconds to store a brand-new height value. I’m making use of switch 1 for my resting placement as well as button 4 for my standing position, which gives me 2 as well as 3 for anything I might require in the future.

Using my Standdesk

I have actually been utilizing the new workdesk for a few weeks as well as have documented my initial perceptions:

The electric motors are quiet but can be listened to in the following space over. It takes perhaps 25 seconds for the desk to fully change from resting to standing based upon my presets.
I utilize an Ergotron side-by-side monitor arm (especially this LX version), causing the desk to obtain a little rough when I move my weight versus the key-board. In knowledge, I must have bought the crossbar upgrade for my desk after establishing the weight of my monitors. If you intend to do a dual monitor arrangement, obtain the bar.

Since gravity compresses the discs in a human spinal column, I require to raise the desk higher in the early morning and also lower it in the evening.

An anti-fatigue mat is absolutely essential for long duration standing. I purchased an Octagonal floor covering from SmartCells, making use of rubber “cells” that are visualized listed below.

Efficiency

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

I didn’t think it was even feasible, the StandDesk somehow handles to be also much more secure than the Jarvis, both at resting and also standing heights. A lot of days I like to run my Jarvis at max elevation while pushed against my wall surface; not always due to the fact that it’s that wobbly, yet even if I desire as much stability as I can get.

The StandDesk one ups the gambit also additionally, verifying to be equally as stable on its own at standing elevation as the Jarvis is with wall support. This is all without the company’s bar addition, which they declare includes a lot more stability when purchased as a part of the plan deal.When it pertains to weight resistance, the StandDesk shares yet much more stats with the Jarvis, being ranked for up to 350 lbs of weight capacity.

I’ve been utilizing the desk for regarding three weeks now for daily work (and also adhering to standing workdesk best methods), whether it’s keying out evaluations similar to this one from our desktop or a laptop computer from time to time. The desk holds up well versus non-coastered drinks, as well as the finish on top of the desk still really feels just as smooth and also glossy as the day I opened it regardless of days of perspiring wrists wresting on it as well as several clean downs with a cloth.

Though I never purposefully attempt to damage any type of workdesks also hard, throughout some lighter examinations (tossing a set of secrets onto it from a range, for instance), it still held up without way too many noticeable indications of damages.

When I gauged the noise outcome of the desk while it rose from a resting setting to standing and also back once more, it was by far the quietest we’ve evaluated. I might hardly get it to make greater than regarding 9.5 dB of noise, so if your largest issue is the whirr of your motor, this is absolutely the one for you.

Customer support

Now, normally I do not include much regarding the client service assistance of any type of offered business, only because I really feel that as a whole if a product works the way its meant to, I shouldn’t ever have a reason to call them in the first place. As well as while I desire I could claim that held true throughout my experience with StandDesk, I simply can not finish this review without mentioning the numerous, apparently countless troubles I experienced trying to get my desk assembled.

For beginners, the desk I was sent really did not have any type of memory mobile phone included initially, which indicated I had no chance of in fact controlling the up/down function on the desk itself. I called StandDesk regarding this concern, that got back to me around a day later with an apology and also an assurance that a brand-new one would be shipped out quickly.

Standdesk review handset

The source of all our problems …
Regarding 4 days later on a phone got here in the mail. The phone originally activated, but it had not been long before I discovered that none of the programmable buttons functioned, nor did the down switch, however, for some reason the “memory” button managed the down feature just fine. I got in touch with the firm once more, and also they excused the mixup as well as said they would have a new panel and also control box out to me within the week.

Over 2 weeks later my new panel and also control box showed up. When I mounted them both the desk finally started functioning the way it was supposed to, yet not after virtually a month of waiting and also backward and forward with a company that couldn’t remember to deliver a core element of their product inside the same box from the beginning.

Points to Consider

In spite of its bankable attributes, this stand workdesk likewise has its very own disadvantages. Given that no singular stand desk can capture every one of the functions that you might require, you may consider these in your decision-making.

Absence of a Bar as criterion

Not having a supporting crossbar is definitely not a deal-breaker, specifically thinking about several of our other favorite workdesks such as the Fully Jarvis also do not have one. This workdesk does have one if you want, yet it is a paid add-on (extra on this later on as well).

The crossbar is seen by some as a hindrance, making it harder to position your legs pleasantly listed below the desk. Others, on the other hand, locate that they give added security, frequently critical when workdesks are completely expanded.

We have not check out any type of problems of the stability of this workdesk, so we do not think its something to truly be worried regarding, although if you actually desired a desk with a bar then we suggest you have a look at the Varidesk ProDesk 60 Electric.

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

Stability

The security of a standing desk is one of the most crucial facets of these workdesks. Without a stable desk you’ll locate it difficult to focus, which can bring about you ending up being much less interested in making use of the desk at standing elevation. To obtain the best return on your financial investment, you’ll intend to enjoy when using the desk.

Due To The Fact That the StandDesk Simple is the first workdesk that I have actually checked with an optional cross support, I will break down my security tests right into 2 areas. Both examinations will certainly consist of the normal front to back rocking test and an entrusted to best wobble. The initial will be without the cross assistance and the secondly will certainly be with it. Simply to note, StandDesk.co says that the enhancement of the cross support can raise stability by approximately 15%. I have no idea how they came up with that number.

Without Cross Support

Left to Right: The wobble test was a different situation. StandDesk Simple was the second workdesk that I examined 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 influence your job.

With Cross Support

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

Left to Right: Adding the cross support to the StandDesk improved the wobble movement for lower elevations. With the cross assistance the wobble motion didn’t start up until you reached 35″. By 39″ the wobble motion came to be bad.

Keep in mind: It’s really important with flexible standing desks to totally tighten all hardware. If there is equipment that is not totally limited, the motion experienced when included standing height will be exaggerated. This is especially real with a desk frame that consists of 32 screws, there are far a lot of points at which the desk has an opportunity to move.

Verdict

Like all the Chinese bases we have actually checked in our laboratories, we have to tighten our referral on the StandDesk Pro to much shorter users with narrower desktop computers, as the security just isn’t there for a huge mass raised high off the ground. American-made workdesks will certainly be much better suited to these applications, as well as for a relatively noticeable factor. Virtually all American-made bases are made in United States factories that are had by Swedish, Danish or German companies that invented this industry, and their average citizens are a whole lot taller than the average Eastern consumer, so they started making longer-stroke training legs a long period of time earlier. As well as they have far more robotic automation, laser-cutting devices, and also sheer experience making standing desk bases, it goes without saying.

If you’re not as well high, do not have an inordinate quantity of hefty equipment on your desktop computer, and do not need as well wide of a desk, the StandDesk Pro will offer you excellent bang for your dollar.

All that may transform with Yu’s guaranteed StandDesk Pro 2.0 style that he expects to launch sometime in the future. Initially we were informed we would certainly see it by June 2018. Greater than a year later on it has yet to materialize, and Yu states he’s had trouble obtaining the product top quality he requires out of several Chinese factories he’s tried collaborating with. The new style is supposedly going to be a lot easier to set up and also have a heftier crossbar design, to name a few refinements. He says the brand-new base will certainly be offered in both a “T-Leg” and “C-Leg” arrangement, relieving our concern regarding side-load emphasizing on the lifting columns.

If this new base ever concerns market we’ll upgrade you here. Yet we’re not holding our breath any kind of longer as one of the most recent information on the business is that Yu shut the tiny Los Angeles office and has relocated it to join with all its other workers in southeast Asia.

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

The foot setting up additionally consists of height-adjustable turning gears to support the front-to-back movement of the desk, which was extremely practical for the carpeted home office floor. I’m also using a flooring mat to secure the rug from chair wheel damages at resting elevation, and push the chair back when I’m transitioning to standing height.

Standdesk-Foot

The luxurious controller deserved the financial investment. The buttons are all variable stress set, implying the up and down arrowheads will adjust the height by 1/10th of an inch with a solitary press, or continually adjust the height by about 0.7 inches per second if you hold the switch for two secs.

Utilizing my Standdesk

I’ve been making use of the new workdesk for a couple of weeks and have written down my initial impressions:

The electric motors are quiet yet can be listened to in the next room over. It takes maybe 25 seconds for the desk to totally transition from resting to standing based upon my presets.
I utilize an Ergotron side-by-side keep an eye on arm (specifically this LX model), triggering the desk to obtain a little rocky when I move my weight versus the key-board. In knowledge, I must have acquired the crossbar upgrade for my workdesk after establishing the weight of my screens. If you prepare to do a twin screen configuration, obtain the bar.

Due to the fact that gravity compresses the discs in a human spine, I require to raise the desk higher in the morning and also reduced it in the evening.

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

Efficiency

Regardless of any kind of problems I may have had with the phone or the cookie-cutter style, virtually all of those problems washed away when I actually came down to using this point.

I didn’t think it was even possible, the StandDesk in some way manages to be even much more stable than the Jarvis, both at sitting and standing elevations. The majority of days I like to run my Jarvis at max height while pressed against my wall surface; not necessarily because it’s that unsteady, however just because I want as much security as I can get.

The StandDesk one ups the gambit also further, proving to be equally as stable on its own at standing height as the Jarvis is with wall support. This is all without the business’s crossbar addition, which they claim adds even more stability when purchased as a part of the package deal.When it pertains to weight tolerance, the StandDesk shares yet much more statistics with the Jarvis, being rated for up to 350 lbs of weight ability.

I’ve been utilizing the desk for regarding three weeks currently for everyday job (as well as complying with standing desk ideal techniques), whether it’s typing out testimonials like this one from our desktop computer or a laptop computer once in a while. The desk stands up well versus non-coastered drinks, and also the finish on top of the desk still really feels equally as smooth as well as slick as the day I opened it in spite of days of perspiring wrists wresting on it as well as multiple wipe downs with a rag.

I never ever purposefully attempt to damage any type of desks as well hard, during some lighter tests (throwing a set of tricks onto it from a range, for instance), it still held up without as well several noticeable indicators of damage.

Lastly, when I measured the sound output of the desk while it climbed from a resting position to standing and also back once more, it was by far the quietest we have actually evaluated yet. I might hardly get it to make greater than about 9.5 dB of sound, so if your largest worry is the whirr of your electric motor, this is certainly the one for you.

Customer support

Currently, generally I do not consist of much regarding the customer service assistance of any given company, just due to the fact that I feel that as a whole if an item functions the method its supposed to, I should not ever have a factor to call them to begin with. As well as while I wish I could say that held true throughout my experience with StandDesk, I merely can’t finish this testimonial without stating the countless, seemingly endless problems I encountered trying to obtain my workdesk assembled.

For beginners, the desk I was sent out really did not have any memory phone included initially, which suggested I had no way of in fact 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 and also a promise that a new one would certainly be shipped out soon.

Standdesk review handset

The resource of all our problems …
About four days later on a handset showed up in the mail. The phone originally turned on, however it wasn’t long before I noticed that none of the programmable buttons worked, nor did the down button, but also for some factor the “memory” switch took care of the down feature just fine. I got in touch with the company once more, as well as they excused the mixup and stated they would certainly have a brand-new panel as well as control box bent on me within the week.

Over two weeks later my new panel and also control box arrived. When I installed them both the desk lastly began working the means it was expected to, however not after nearly a month of waiting and to and fro with a company that could not keep in mind to deliver a core part of their item inside the exact same box from the outset.

Points to Think about

Regardless of its bankable functions, this stand desk additionally has its very own drawbacks. Because no particular stand workdesk might capture every one of the attributes that you may need, you may take into consideration these in your decision-making.

Lack of a Bar as standard

Not having a maintaining crossbar is definitely not a deal-breaker, particularly thinking about a few of our other favorite desks such as the Totally Jarvis likewise don’t have one. This desk does have one if you want, yet it is a paid add-on (more on this later as well).

The bar is seen by some as a barrier, making it more difficult to put your legs easily below the desk. Others, on the other hand, discover that they give added stability, commonly important when desks are completely expanded.

We have not review any kind of grievances of the stability of this workdesk, so we do not think its something to really be concerned regarding, although if you truly wanted a workdesk with a bar after that we recommend you take a look at the Varidesk ProDesk 60 Electric.

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

Security

The stability of a standing workdesk is just one of the most crucial facets of these desks. Without a stable desk you’ll locate it tough to focus, which can bring about you becoming less curious about making use of the desk at standing height. To obtain the very best return on your investment, you’ll intend to more than happy when utilizing the desk.

Due To The Fact That the StandDesk Simple is the first desk that I have examined with an optional cross assistance, I will break down my stability tests into 2 areas. Both tests will certainly include the common front to back shaking examination and also a left to right wobble. The initial will lack the cross support and the second will certainly be with it. Just to keep in mind, StandDesk.co claims that the enhancement of the cross support can increase stability by up to 15%. I have no concept how they thought of that number.

Without Cross Support

Left to Right: The wobble test was a various circumstance. StandDesk Simple was the 2nd workdesk that I examined that wobbled near the bottom with weight on the desktop. The first was the IKEA Bekant. By the time it got to 36″ the shaking activity was bad. Beyond this point it would certainly influence your job.

With Cross Support

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

Entrusted to Right: Adding the cross assistance to the StandDesk enhanced the wobble motion for reduced elevations. With the cross assistance the wobble movement really did not begin up until you reached 35″. By 39″ the wobble motion came to be bad.

Note: It’s very important with adjustable standing desks to completely tighten up all hardware. If there is hardware that is not entirely limited, the motion experienced when reached standing elevation will be overemphasized. This is specifically true with a workdesk frame that consists of 32 bolts, there are far a lot of factors at which the desk has a possibility to move.

Conclusion

Like all the Chinese bases we’ve tested in our laboratories, we need to tighten our suggestion on the StandDesk Pro to shorter individuals with narrower desktops, as the stability just isn’t there for a big mass boosted high off the ground. American-made workdesks will be much better fit to these applications, and also for a rather noticeable factor. Basically all American-made bases are made in US factories that are possessed by Swedish, Danish or German companies that created this sector, and their ordinary people are a lot taller than the average Oriental customer, so they started making longer-stroke lifting legs a long period of time back. And they have far more robotic automation, laser-cutting devices, and large experience making standing desk bases, needless to say.

If you’re not also high, do not have an excessive amount of heavy devices on your desktop computer, and don’t require too broad of a desk, the StandDesk Pro will give you good bang for your dollar.

All that could change with Yu’s promised StandDesk Pro 2.0 style that he expects to launch at some time in the future. Initially we were informed we ‘d see it by June 2018. Greater than a year later it has yet to appear, and Yu states he’s had problem obtaining the item quality he requires out of a number of Chinese manufacturing facilities he’s attempted dealing with. The brand-new style is allegedly going to be a lot easier to assemble as well as have a heftier crossbar style, among other improvements. He claims the new base will certainly be supplied in both a “T-Leg” and also “C-Leg” setup, reducing our worry about side-load worrying on the training columns.

If this new base ever before involves market we’ll upgrade you here. We’re not holding our breath any type of longer as the most current news on the business is that Yu shut the small Los Angeles office and has moved it to join with all its other workers in southeast Asia.

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