The StandDesk was developed by millennials, is marketed directly at millennials, and has actually been gobbled up by millennials in impressive quantities. While it carries a ten-year service warranty (the longest of any type of Chinese-made base), in this instance it’s not necessarily a dependable indication of the anticipated valuable life of the lifting columns. But for the price, the StandDesk is a fantastic lower-cost option to the UpLift, Jarvis as well as various other Chinese-made desks. Regardless of its stability issues this is a much better product than the Autonomous SmartDesk or IKEA Bekant might ever hope to be, as well as a good value on the whole. It’s the mid-priced offering in the wide category of Chinese-made desks that is swaying customers from both its more affordable and also costlier peers.

StandDesk Building, Arrangement, as well as Gizmos

Developing the desk is pretty simple if you comply with the comprehensive guidelines. Every one of the screws, screws, washing machines, as well as spring washers can be found in separate bags that are noted with their location: tabletop, framework, and spares. There’s an included hex tool for attaching all of the bolts into the framework, or, appear a hex little bit into your power tool– simply take care not to over-tighten.

All of the components have a top quality finish to them with rounded edges to avoid cut hands. Below is a shot of all the screws that are secured to the leg assembly– it’s not going anywhere!

Standdesk-Leg

The foot setting up likewise consists of height-adjustable turning gears to stabilize the front-to-back motion of the desk, which was really useful for the carpeted office flooring. I’m additionally utilizing a flooring mat to protect the rug from chair wheel damage at sitting height, and also push the chair when I’m transitioning to standing height.

Standdesk-Foot

The luxurious controller deserved the investment. The buttons are all variable stress set, indicating the backwards and forwards arrows will certainly adjust the elevation by 1/10th of an inch with a single press, or continually readjust the height by around 0.7 inches per second if you hold the button for 2 secs. The memory buttons are similar in style: press to recall the elevation setup, or hold the button down for 5 seconds to keep a brand-new elevation value. I’m using button 1 for my sitting setting as well as button 4 for my standing setting, which provides me 2 and also 3 for anything I might need in the future.

Using my Standdesk

I have actually been utilizing the new workdesk for a couple of weeks and have actually documented my first impressions:

The motors are quiet however can be listened to in the next space over. It takes maybe 25 seconds for the desk to totally transition from sitting to standing based on my presets.
I make use of an Ergotron side-by-side keep an eye on arm (specifically this LX design), triggering the desk to obtain a little rough when I change my weight versus the keyboard. In knowledge, I must have acquired the bar upgrade for my desk after determining the weight of my monitors. If you intend to do a double display setup, get the bar.

Because gravity compresses the discs in a human back, I need to raise the desk higher in the morning and lower it at night.

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

Efficiency

Regardless of any type of issues I may have had with the mobile phone or the cookie-cutter layout, virtually every one of those concerns gotten rid of once I in fact got down to using this point.

Although I didn’t believe it was even feasible, the StandDesk somehow handles to be a lot more stable than the Jarvis, both at resting and also standing heights. Many days I such as to run my Jarvis at max elevation while pressed versus my wall; not necessarily because it’s that shaky, however even if I want as much security as I can obtain.

The StandDesk one ups the gambit even additionally, confirming to be just as stable on its own at standing elevation as the Jarvis is with wall support. This is all without the business’s crossbar enhancement, which they claim includes even more stability when bought as a part of the bundle deal.When it pertains to weight resistance, the StandDesk shares yet a lot more statistics with the Jarvis, being rated for as much as 350 pounds of weight capability.

I have actually been utilizing the desk for about 3 weeks currently for daily job (and also complying with standing workdesk best methods), whether it’s typing out evaluations such as this one from our desktop computer or a laptop computer once in a while. The desk holds up well versus non-coastered beverages, and the finish in addition to the desk still really feels equally as smooth and slick as the day I opened it regardless of days of sweaty wrists wresting on it as well as multiple clean downs with a rag.

I never ever intentionally attempt to damage any kind of desks also hard, during some lighter examinations (tossing a set of secrets onto it from a range, for instance), it still held up without as well numerous noticeable indicators of damages.

When I measured the noise output of the workdesk while it increased from a resting setting to standing as well as back once again, it was by far the quietest we’ve tested. I could barely get it to make greater than regarding 9.5 dB of sound, so if your largest concern is the whirr of your motor, this is certainly the one for you.

Customer support

Now, usually I do not consist of much about the customer support support of any type of offered company, only because I feel that as a whole if an item functions the way its expected to, I shouldn’t ever before have a reason to call them in the first place. And also while I desire I can claim that was the case throughout my experience with StandDesk, I simply can not finish this evaluation without mentioning the many, seemingly unlimited troubles I came across attempting to get my workdesk created.

For beginners, the desk I was sent out didn’t have any type of memory phone included initially, which implied I had no other way of actually controlling the up/down feature on the desk itself. I spoke to StandDesk regarding this problem, that returned to me around a day later with an apology and a pledge that a brand-new one would certainly be shipped soon.

Standdesk review handset

The source of all our troubles …
Regarding 4 days later on a mobile phone arrived in the mail. The mobile at first activated, but it had not been long prior to I discovered that none of the programmable switches functioned, neither did the down button, but for some factor the “memory” switch managed the down feature simply great. I got in touch with the company once more, and they excused the mixup and also said they would have a new panel and control box out to me within the week.

Over two weeks later on my brand-new panel as well as control box showed up. As soon as I mounted them both the desk lastly started functioning the way it was meant to, however not after practically a month of waiting and also back and forth with a company that couldn’t keep in mind to deliver a core part of their product inside the very same box from the beginning.

Things to Consider

In spite of its bankable functions, this stand up desk also has its own disadvantages. Since no single stand workdesk might catch every one of the features that you may require, you might consider these in your decision-making.

Absence of a Crossbar as requirement

Not having a maintaining bar is certainly not a deal-breaker, particularly thinking about some of our other favorite workdesks such as the Fully Jarvis also don’t have one. This workdesk does have one if you want, but it is a paid add-on (a lot more on this later as well).

The crossbar is seen by some as a hindrance, making it tougher to put your legs conveniently below the desk. Others, on the other hand, locate that they provide added stability, frequently crucial when workdesks are fully prolonged.

We have not check out any kind of grievances of the security of this desk, so we do not believe its something to truly be worried about, although if you really wanted a desk with a bar then we suggest you take a look at the Varidesk ProDesk 60 Electric.

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

Security

The security of a standing desk is among the most important facets of these desks. Without a secure desk you’ll discover it hard to focus, which could bring about you becoming 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 making use of the desk.

Due To The Fact That the StandDesk Simple is the initial workdesk that I have actually checked with an optional cross assistance, I will certainly break down my security examinations right into 2 areas. Both examinations will certainly consist of the normal front to back shaking examination as well as a delegated ideal wobble. The first will certainly be without the cross assistance as well as the secondly will be with it. Simply to keep in mind, StandDesk.co says that the addition of the cross assistance can boost stability by as much as 15%. I have no suggestion how they came up with that number.

Without Cross Support

Left to Right: The wobble test was a various situation. StandDesk Simple was the second workdesk that I examined that wobbled 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. Yet point it would impact your job.

With Cross Support

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

Entrusted to Right: Adding the cross support to the StandDesk enhanced the wobble movement for reduced heights. With the cross support the wobble motion really did not start till you got to 35″. By 39″ the wobble activity came to be bad.

Note: It’s really important with adjustable standing workdesks to fully tighten up all hardware. If there is hardware that is not completely limited, the movement experienced when reached standing height will be overemphasized. This is especially true with a desk frame that consists of 32 screws, there are far too many points at which the desk has a chance to relocate.

Final thought

Like all the Chinese bases we have actually evaluated in our laboratories, we need to narrow our suggestion on the StandDesk Pro to much shorter individuals with narrower desktop computers, as the stability simply isn’t there for a huge mass elevated high off the ground. American-made desks will be better fit to these applications, as well as for a relatively apparent factor. Essentially all American-made bases are made in United States manufacturing facilities that are owned by Swedish, Danish or German business that invented this market, and their average citizens are a great deal taller than the typical Asian consumer, so they began making longer-stroke lifting legs a very long time ago. And they have much more robot automation, laser-cutting equipment, as well as large experience making standing workdesk bases, needless to say.

If you’re not too high, do not have an inordinate quantity of heavy tools on your desktop computer, as well as don’t require too wide of a workdesk, the StandDesk Pro will certainly offer you good bang for your buck.

All that could alter with Yu’s assured StandDesk Pro 2.0 design that he anticipates 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 emerge, and also Yu states he’s had trouble getting the product top quality he needs out of numerous Chinese factories he’s tried dealing with. The new style is allegedly going to be a lot easier to assemble and also have a heftier bar style, among other improvements. He states the brand-new base will certainly be supplied in both a “T-Leg” as well as “C-Leg” configuration, reducing our problem regarding side-load worrying on the training columns.

If this brand-new base ever before pertains to market we’ll upgrade you below. However we’re not holding our breath any kind of longer as one of the most current information on the company is that Yu shut the tiny Los Angeles office as well as has moved it to join with all its various other workers in southeast Asia.

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

For the price, the StandDesk is a great lower-cost option to the UpLift, Jarvis as well as various other Chinese-made workdesks. Despite its security concerns this is a much much better item than the Autonomous SmartDesk or IKEA Bekant might ever wish to be, and a good value generally. It’s the mid-priced offering in the wide classification of Chinese-made workdesks that is gaining clients from both its less costly and costlier peers.

StandDesk Construction, Configuration, and also Devices

Constructing the desk is rather easy if you follow the in-depth guidelines. Every one of the screws, bolts, washers, and spring washing machines been available in separate bags that are noted with their destination: tabletop, framework, and spares. There’s a consisted of hex tool for fastening every one of the bolts into the structure, or, appear a hex little bit right into your power tool– just take care not to over-tighten.

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

Standdesk-Leg

The foot setting up likewise consists of height-adjustable turning equipments to maintain the front-to-back motion of the desk, which was really handy for the carpeted office floor. I’m additionally making use of a flooring mat to secure the carpeting from chair wheel damages at resting elevation, as well as push the chair when I’m transitioning to standing height.

Standdesk-Foot

The luxurious controller deserved the financial investment. The switches are all variable pressure programmed, meaning the up and down arrowheads will change the height by 1/10th of an inch with a single press, or continuously adjust the elevation by around 0.7 inches per second if you hold the switch for 2 seconds. The memory buttons are comparable in design: press to remember the elevation setup, or hold the button down for 5 secs to keep a brand-new elevation value. I’m using button 1 for my resting position and also switch 4 for my standing setting, which provides me 2 as well as 3 for anything I could require in the future.

Using my Standdesk

I have actually been utilizing the new workdesk for a few weeks as well as have actually jotted down my initial impressions:

The electric motors are quiet but can be heard in the next area over. It takes perhaps 25 seconds for the desk to totally shift from sitting to standing based on my presets.
I make use of an Ergotron side-by-side keep track of arm (particularly this LX design), creating the desk to get a little rocky when I move my weight versus the keyboard. In hindsight, I should have acquired the crossbar upgrade for my desk after identifying the weight of my screens. If you intend to do a dual screen setup, obtain the crossbar.

Because gravity presses the discs in a human spine, I require to elevate the desk greater in the morning as well as lower it at night.

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

Performance

Regardless of any type of issues I might have had with the mobile phone or the cookie-cutter style, practically every one of those problems gotten rid of when I in fact got down to utilizing this point.

Although I really did not think it was also possible, the StandDesk somehow handles to be a lot more secure than the Jarvis, both at resting and also standing heights. The majority of days I such as to run my Jarvis at max height while pushed versus my wall surface; not always due to the fact that it’s that wobbly, however even if I want as much security as I can get.

The StandDesk one ups the gambit even better, proving 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 crossbar enhancement, which they claim includes even more stability when bought as a part of the package deal.When it involves weight tolerance, the StandDesk shares yet a lot more statistics with the Jarvis, being rated for approximately 350 lbs of weight capability.

I have actually been making use of the desk for regarding 3 weeks now for everyday work (and adhering to standing desk ideal techniques), whether it’s keying out evaluations such as this one from our desktop or a laptop computer every so often. The desk holds up well versus non-coastered drinks, and the coating on top of the desk still really feels equally as smooth as well as slick as the day I opened it despite days of sweaty wrists wresting on it as well as multiple wipe downs with a cloth.

Though I never deliberately attempt to dent any kind of desks also hard, throughout some lighter tests (throwing a set of secrets onto it from a range, as an example), it still held up without way too many noticeable indicators of damage.

Lastly, when I measured the noise output of the desk while it climbed from a sitting placement to standing as well as back once again, it was by far the quietest we’ve evaluated yet. I can barely get it to make greater than about 9.5 dB of sound, so if your greatest concern is the whirr of your motor, this is most definitely the one for you.

Client service

Currently, usually I do not consist of much about the customer service support of any kind of given firm, only due to the fact that I really feel that generally if a product works the means its intended to, I should not ever have a factor to call them to begin with. And while I desire I could state that was the case during my experience with StandDesk, I merely can not finish this testimonial without pointing out the numerous, relatively countless problems I ran into trying to get my workdesk created.

For beginners, the desk I was sent out didn’t have any memory phone included initially, which implied I had no other way of actually managing the up/down function on the desk itself. I got in touch with StandDesk about this problem, who returned to me around a day later with an apology as well as a promise that a new one would be shipped out soon.

Standdesk evaluation handset

The source of all our problems …
Concerning four days later a mobile arrived in the mail. The handset at first turned on, yet it had not been long prior to I observed that none of the programmable switches worked, nor did the down button, but also for some factor the “memory” button took care of the down feature simply fine. I contacted the business again, and they excused the mixup and stated they would have a new panel as well as control box out to me within the week.

Over two weeks later my brand-new panel as well as control box showed up. When I mounted them both the desk lastly began functioning the means it was intended to, however not after nearly a month of waiting and back and forth with a business that couldn’t bear in mind to deliver a core part of their product inside the exact same box from the start.

Points to Consider

In spite of its bankable functions, this stand up desk also has its own drawbacks. Given that no particular stand workdesk can catch every one of the features that you might require, you may think about these in your decision-making.

Absence of a Bar as requirement

Not having a maintaining bar is certainly not a deal-breaker, specifically taking into consideration a few of our various other preferred desks such as the Fully Jarvis likewise do not have one. This workdesk does have one if you desire, yet it is a paid add-on (much more on this later as well).

The bar is seen by some as a barrier, making it more difficult to position your legs conveniently below the desk. Others, on the other hand, locate that they give included security, commonly crucial when workdesks are fully extended.

We have not check out any issues of the security of this workdesk, so we don’t assume its something to actually be worried concerning, although if you truly wanted a desk with a crossbar then we recommend you have a look at the Varidesk ProDesk 60 Electric.

Additionally, StandDesk does offer 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 workdesk is one of the most vital facets of these workdesks. Without a steady workdesk you’ll find it difficult to concentrate, which might bring about you becoming much less interested in making use of the desk at standing height. To obtain the very best return on your financial investment, you’ll wish to more than happy when using the desk.

Since the StandDesk Simple is the first workdesk that I have actually tested with an optional cross assistance, I will certainly break down my stability examinations into 2 sections. Both tests will certainly consist of the common front to back rocking test as well as a left to appropriate wobble. The initial will be without the cross assistance and the second will be with it. Just to keep in mind, StandDesk.co says that the addition of the cross assistance can boost stability by up to 15%. I have no concept exactly how they created that number.

Without Cross Support

Left to Right: The wobble examination was a various circumstance. StandDesk Simple was the 2nd desk that I checked that tottered at the bottom with weight on the desktop. The very first was the IKEA Bekant. By the time it reached 36″ the shaking movement was bad. Yet factor it would impact your job.

With Cross Support

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

Entrusted to Right: Including the cross support to the StandDesk boosted the wobble activity for reduced elevations. With the cross support the wobble activity really did not begin until you reached 35″. By 39″ the wobble movement came to be negative.

Keep in mind: It’s really crucial with adjustable standing workdesks to totally tighten all equipment. If there is hardware that is not totally tight, the movement experienced when reached standing elevation will be exaggerated. This is particularly real with a workdesk frame that consists of 32 bolts, there are much too many factors at which the desk has a possibility to move.

Conclusion

Like all the Chinese bases we’ve tested in our laboratories, we have to tighten our recommendation on the StandDesk Pro to shorter customers with narrower desktops, as the security simply isn’t there for a big mass raised high off the ground. American-made workdesks will be much better suited to these applications, as well as for a rather apparent factor. Virtually all American-made bases are made in US manufacturing facilities that are had by Swedish, Danish or German companies that invented this sector, as well as their average people are a whole lot taller than the average Eastern consumer, so they started making longer-stroke lifting legs a long period of time ago. As well as they have much more robotic automation, laser-cutting tools, as well as sheer experience making standing desk bases, needless to say.

Yet if you’re not also high, don’t have an excessive amount of heavy equipment on your desktop computer, as well as do not require also wide of a desk, the StandDesk Pro will offer you great bang for your buck.

All that might alter with Yu’s assured 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, as well as Yu states he’s had difficulty getting the product top quality he needs out of several Chinese manufacturing facilities he’s attempted working with. The brand-new layout is apparently going to be a lot easier to set up and have a heftier crossbar style, to name a few refinements. He says the brand-new base will certainly be used in both a “T-Leg” and also “C-Leg” configuration, relieving our worry about side-load worrying on the training columns.

If this new base ever involves market we’ll update you here. Yet we’re not holding our breath any longer as the most recent news on the company is that Yu closed the little Los Angeles office and has actually moved it to join with all its various other staff members in southeast Asia.

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