The StandDesk was created by millennials, is marketed right at millennials, and has been gobbled up by millennials in remarkable volumes. While it lugs a ten-year warranty (the lengthiest of any Chinese-made base), in this case it’s not always a trustworthy indication of the anticipated valuable life of the lifting columns. But for the rate, the StandDesk is an excellent lower-cost option to the UpLift, Jarvis as well as other Chinese-made workdesks. Despite its security concerns this is a much much better product than the Autonomous SmartDesk or IKEA Bekant might ever hope to be, as well as a good value in general. It’s the mid-priced offering in the wide group of Chinese-made desks that is swaying customers from both its more affordable and costlier peers.

StandDesk Construction, Setup, as well as Devices

Building the desk is rather straight forward if you comply with the comprehensive directions. All of the screws, screws, washers, as well as springtime washing machines been available in separate bags that are noted with their location: table top, frame, and spares. There’s a consisted of hex device for fastening every one of the screws into the framework, or, appear a hex little bit into your power tool– simply take care not to over-tighten.

Every one of the components have an excellent quality coating to them with rounded edges to stay clear of cut hands. Below is a shot of all the screws that are attached to the leg assembly– it’s not going anywhere!

The foot assembly likewise consists of height-adjustable turning equipments to maintain the front-to-back movement of the desk, which was extremely useful for the carpeted office floor. I’m likewise making use of a floor mat to shield the carpet from chair wheel damage at resting elevation, as well as push the chair when I’m transitioning to standing height.

The luxurious controller was worth the investment. The buttons are all variable stress programmed, meaning the up and down arrowheads will adjust the height by 1/10th of an inch with a single press, or constantly adjust the elevation by around 0.7 inches per 2nd if you hold the switch for 2 seconds. The memory switches are similar in layout: press to remember the elevation setting, or hold the button down for 5 secs to save a brand-new height worth. I’m utilizing button 1 for my resting setting and also switch 4 for my standing setting, which provides me 2 as well as 3 for anything I may need in the future.

Using my Standdesk

I have actually been making use of the brand-new workdesk for a few weeks and have jotted down my first impressions:

The electric motors are quiet yet can be heard in the next room over. It takes maybe 25 seconds for the desk to completely transition from sitting to standing based on my presets.
I utilize an Ergotron side-by-side monitor arm (especially this LX design), causing the desk to obtain a little rocky when I move my weight against the key-board. In knowledge, I should have bought the bar upgrade for my desk after determining the weight of my monitors. If you intend to do a double display setup, obtain the crossbar.

Due to the fact that gravity compresses the discs in a human back, I require to increase the desk higher in the early morning and also lower it in the evening.

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

Efficiency

Despite any kind of issues I may have had with the handset or the cookie-cutter style, pretty much every one of those problems gotten rid of once I in fact got down to using this thing.

I really did not assume it was even possible, the StandDesk in some way manages to be also a lot more steady than the Jarvis, both at resting as well as standing elevations. Many days I such as to run my Jarvis at max elevation while pressed against my wall surface; not necessarily due to the fact that it’s that wobbly, however even if I desire as much stability as I can get.

The StandDesk one ups the gambit even better, proving to be equally as consistent on its own at standing elevation as the Jarvis is with wall support. This is all without the company’s bar enhancement, which they declare includes a lot more security when purchased as a part of the plan deal.When it comes to weight tolerance, the StandDesk shares yet much more stats with the Jarvis, being ranked for approximately 350 pounds of weight capacity.

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

Though I never ever deliberately try to dent any type of 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 way too many noticeable signs of damages.

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

Client service

Currently, usually I don’t include much regarding the client service support of any type of provided business, only because I feel that generally if a product functions the method its meant to, I shouldn’t ever before have a factor to call them to begin with. And while I desire I could say that held true during my experience with StandDesk, I simply can’t finish this testimonial without mentioning the various, apparently countless troubles I came across trying to get my workdesk created.

For beginners, the desk I was sent didn’t have any memory phone consisted of initially, which indicated I had no other way of in fact regulating the up/down feature on the desk itself. I called StandDesk regarding this concern, who returned to me around a day later with an apology as well as a pledge that a new one would be shipped quickly.

Standdesk testimonial handset

The source of all our problems …
About four days later a mobile phone showed up in the mail. The phone at first activated, however it had not been long prior to I saw that none of the programmable switches worked, nor did the down button, but for some reason the “memory” switch took care of the down function simply fine. I called the business again, as well as they excused the mixup and also said they would certainly have a brand-new panel and also control box bent on me within the week.

Over two weeks later my new panel as well as control box arrived. Once I installed them both the desk ultimately started functioning the way it was expected to, but not after almost a month of waiting as well as back and forth with a company that could not bear in mind to ship a core part of their item inside the very same box from the outset.

Points to Consider

Despite its bankable features, this stand desk likewise has its very own disadvantages. Because no single stand desk can catch every one of the features that you might need, you might consider these in your decision-making.

Absence of a Bar as criterion

Not having a supporting bar is definitely not a deal-breaker, especially taking into consideration a few of our various other favored workdesks such as the Totally Jarvis additionally don’t have one. This workdesk does have one if you want, but it is a paid add-on (much more on this later also).

The bar is seen by some as a limitation, making it harder to place your legs easily listed below the desk. Others, on the other hand, locate that they give added security, commonly crucial when workdesks are completely prolonged.

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

StandDesk does supply a separate add-on bar that you can include to the desk yourself, simply for an added $49.95.

Stability

The security of a standing desk is among the most vital facets of these workdesks. Without a stable desk you’ll find it hard to concentrate, which can bring about you ending up being much less interested in making use of the desk at standing elevation. To obtain the very best return on your investment, you’ll want to enjoy when making use of the desk.

Because the StandDesk Simple is the very first desk that I have checked with an optional cross assistance, I will break down my security tests right into two areas. Both examinations will certainly consist of the regular front to back rocking test as well as a delegated right wobble. The first will certainly lack the cross assistance as well as the secondly will be with it. Simply to keep in mind, StandDesk.co states that the addition of the cross assistance can raise stability by approximately 15%. I have no concept how they generated that number.

Without Cross Support

Left to Right: The wobble test was a different circumstance. StandDesk Simple was the second workdesk that I examined that tottered at the bottom with weight on the desktop. The initial was the IKEA Bekant. By the time it reached 36″ the rocking activity misbehaved. Yet point it would certainly affect your job.

With Cross Assistance

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

Entrusted to Right: Adding the cross assistance to the StandDesk enhanced the wobble motion for lower elevations. With the cross support the wobble activity really did not start up until you reached 35″. By 39″ the wobble motion came to be poor.

Keep in mind: It’s very important with adjustable standing desks to totally tighten up all equipment. If there is equipment that is not completely limited, the movement experienced when reached standing height will certainly be exaggerated. This is specifically real with a desk structure that includes 32 bolts, there are much too many points at which the desk has a possibility to move.

Final thought

Like all the Chinese bases we have actually examined in our laboratories, we have to tighten our referral on the StandDesk Pro to shorter customers with narrower desktop computers, as the stability simply isn’t there for a large mass elevated high off the ground. American-made desks will certainly be better fit to these applications, and for a relatively noticeable factor. Basically all American-made bases are made in US manufacturing facilities that are possessed by Swedish, Danish or German firms that created this industry, and their typical people are a whole lot taller than the ordinary Oriental customer, so they started making longer-stroke lifting legs a long period of time earlier. And they have much more robotic automation, laser-cutting tools, as well as large experience making standing desk bases, it goes without saying.

But if you’re not too tall, do not have an extreme quantity of hefty devices on your desktop, and do not require also wide of a desk, the StandDesk Pro will provide you great value.

All that may alter with Yu’s promised StandDesk Pro 2.0 design that he anticipates to release 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 difficulty getting the item top quality he needs out of numerous Chinese factories he’s attempted collaborating with. The new design is apparently going to be much easier to put together and have a heftier crossbar style, to name a few improvements. He states the brand-new base will be used in both a “T-Leg” and also “C-Leg” setup, easing our issue about side-load stressing on the lifting columns.

If this brand-new base ever involves market we’ll upgrade you right here. However we’re not holding our breath any longer as the most current information on the firm is that Yu closed the tiny Los Angeles office and has relocated it to join with all its various other workers in southeast Asia.

In the meantime, a new $399 standing workdesk with remarkable performance has been present via the brand-new joint venture between US-based iMovR as well as China-based Eureka, the i1 electrical standing desk. While limited in size as well as color options, it has actually taken the mantle far from StandDesk’s long-ago standing as the most effective standing workdesk under $400.

It’s the mid-priced offering in the broad classification of Chinese-made desks that is gaining clients from both its less expensive as well as more expensive peers.

StandDesk Building, Configuration, and Gadgets

Building the desk is rather simple if you comply with the detailed guidelines. All of the screws, bolts, washers, as well as spring washers been available in separate bags that are marked with their location: table top, frame, and also spares. There’s an included hex tool for fastening every one of the screws right into the framework, or, pop in a hex little bit into your power tool– just beware not to over-tighten.

Every one of the components have a top quality surface to them with rounded corners to avoid cut hands. Below is a shot of all the screws that are secured to the leg setting up– it’s not going anywhere!

The foot assembly also consists of height-adjustable rotation gears to stabilize the front-to-back activity of the desk, which was really useful for the carpeted office flooring. I’m additionally making use of a floor mat to safeguard the carpeting from chair wheel damages at sitting height, as well as push the chair back when I’m transitioning to standing height.

Standdesk-Foot

The luxurious controller deserved the investment. The switches are all variable pressure set, indicating the backwards and forwards arrowheads will change the elevation by 1/10th of an inch with a solitary press, or continuously adjust the elevation by about 0.7 inches per 2nd if you hold the switch for two seconds. The memory switches are comparable in design: press to recall the elevation setting, or hold the button down for five secs to store a new elevation value. I’m making use of button 1 for my resting setting as well as switch 4 for my standing position, which provides me 2 and also 3 for anything I may need in the future.

Utilizing my Standdesk

I have actually been making use of the new workdesk for a couple of weeks and also have actually jotted down my preliminary perceptions:

The electric motors are quiet but can be listened to in the next room over. It takes possibly 25 seconds for the desk to fully transition from sitting to standing based on my presets.
I make use of an Ergotron side-by-side monitor arm (especially this LX design), causing the desk to get a little rocky when I change my weight versus the keyboard. In hindsight, I ought to have purchased the bar upgrade for my workdesk after figuring out the weight of my screens. If you prepare to do a twin display arrangement, get the bar.

Due to the fact that gravity presses the discs in a human spinal column, I need to elevate the desk greater in the early morning and reduced it in the evening.

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

Performance

Despite any type of issues I might have had with the mobile phone or the cookie-cutter design, practically every one of those problems removed once I in fact got down to utilizing this thing.

I didn’t assume it was even possible, the StandDesk somehow handles to be even a lot more steady than the Jarvis, both at sitting and also standing elevations. The majority of days I like to run my Jarvis at max elevation while pushed versus my wall; not necessarily due to the fact that it’s that wobbly, but just because I desire as much security as I can obtain.

The StandDesk one ups the gambit also additionally, showing to be equally as steady on its own at standing height as the Jarvis is with wall support. This is all without the business’s crossbar enhancement, which they declare adds a lot more security when acquired as a part of the plan deal.When it concerns weight resistance, the StandDesk shares yet a lot more stats with the Jarvis, being ranked for approximately 350 lbs of weight ability.

I’ve been utilizing the desk for regarding three weeks currently for daily job (and adhering to standing desk finest techniques), whether it’s inputting out evaluations such as this one from our desktop computer or a laptop computer every now and then. The desk holds up well against non-coastered beverages, and also the surface in addition to the desk still feels equally as smooth as well as glossy as the day I opened it despite days of sweaty wrists wresting on it and also numerous clean downs with a rag.

Though I never ever purposefully try to damage any desks as well hard, during some lighter examinations (throwing a collection of secrets onto it from a range, as an example), it still stood up without too many visible signs of damages.

When I gauged the sound outcome of the workdesk while it rose from a resting placement to standing and also back once more, it was by far the quietest we have actually examined. I might hardly get it to make greater than concerning 9.5 dB of sound, so if your largest concern is the whirr of your electric motor, this is absolutely the one for you.

Customer care

Currently, normally I do not consist of much about the customer care assistance of any given firm, only due to the fact that I really feel that in general if an item functions the means its intended to, I should not ever before have a reason to call them in the first place. As well as while I desire I could state that was the case throughout my experience with StandDesk, I simply can not finish this review without mentioning the many, seemingly countless issues I experienced attempting to get my workdesk assembled.

For starters, the desk I was sent didn’t have any type of memory handset included originally, which indicated I had no chance of in fact regulating the up/down feature on the desk itself. I got in touch with StandDesk concerning this concern, who got back to me around a day later on with an apology and a pledge that a new one would certainly be shipped out quickly.

Standdesk review handset

The resource of all our troubles …
About four days later a mobile phone showed up in the mail. The handset initially turned on, yet it wasn’t long before I observed that none of the programmable buttons functioned, nor did the down switch, however, for some factor the “memory” button took care of the down feature simply great. I spoke to the company once more, and they apologized for the mixup and also claimed they would have a new panel and also control box bent on me within the week.

Over 2 weeks later my new panel as well as control box got here. As soon as I installed them both the desk finally started functioning the way it was expected to, but not after nearly a month of waiting and back and forth with a company that could not remember to ship a core part of their product inside the very same box from the outset.

Points to Consider

Despite its bankable functions, this stand up desk likewise has its own downsides. Given that no particular stand workdesk might catch every one of the features that you may need, you may think about these in your decision-making.

Lack of a Bar as standard

Not having a supporting crossbar is absolutely not a deal-breaker, especially thinking about a few of our various other favored workdesks such as the Fully Jarvis additionally do not have one. Actually, this workdesk does have one if you want, but it is a paid add-on (a lot more on this later on too).

The bar is seen by some as an obstacle, making it harder to position your legs comfortably listed below the desk. Others, on the other hand, locate that they supply added stability, commonly vital when desks are completely extended.

We have not read any grievances of the stability of this desk, so we do not believe its something to truly be worried concerning, although if you really wanted a desk with a bar after that we suggest you have a look at the Varidesk ProDesk 60 Electric.

StandDesk does supply a separate add-on crossbar that you can include to the workdesk yourself, just for an added $49.95.

Security

The security of a standing workdesk is one of the most essential aspects of these desks. Without a secure desk you’ll discover it tough to focus, which could bring about you becoming much less thinking about using the desk at standing elevation. To obtain the best return on your investment, you’ll want to enjoy when utilizing the desk.

Since the StandDesk Simple is the first workdesk that I have actually checked with an optional cross support, I will certainly break down my stability examinations right into 2 sections. Both examinations will consist of the common front to back shaking examination and also a left to right wobble. The first will certainly be without the cross assistance and the second will be with it. Just to keep in mind, StandDesk.co states that the addition of the cross support can enhance stability by as much as 15%. I have no suggestion just how they thought of that number.

Without Cross Support

Left to Right: The wobble examination was a various circumstance. StandDesk Simple was the second desk that I tested that tottered at the bottom with weight on the desktop. The first was the IKEA Bekant. By the time it reached 36″ the shaking activity was bad. Beyond this point it would certainly influence your work.

With Cross Assistance

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

Left to Right: Adding the cross assistance to the StandDesk enhanced the wobble motion for lower elevations. With the cross assistance the wobble movement didn’t begin till you got to 35″. By 39″ the wobble activity became poor.

Keep in mind: It’s very important with adjustable standing desks to fully tighten all hardware. If there is hardware that is not completely tight, the movement experienced when included standing elevation will certainly be overemphasized. This is specifically real with a workdesk framework that consists of 32 screws, there are far a lot of factors at which the desk has a possibility to move.

Verdict

Like all the Chinese bases we’ve evaluated in our laboratories, we need to narrow our suggestion on the StandDesk Pro to much shorter individuals with narrower desktops, as the security just isn’t there for a large mass elevated high off the ground. American-made desks will be better fit to these applications, as well as for a rather apparent reason. Essentially all American-made bases are made in US manufacturing facilities that are possessed by Swedish, Danish or German companies that designed this sector, and also their average citizens are a whole lot taller than the average Asian consumer, so they started making longer-stroke training legs a long time back. As well as they have much more robotic automation, laser-cutting equipment, and sheer experience making standing desk bases, needless to say.

Yet if you’re not also tall, do not have an excessive quantity of heavy devices on your desktop, and don’t need too wide of a desk, the StandDesk Pro will give you great value.

All that could alter with Yu’s promised StandDesk Pro 2.0 style that he anticipates to launch sometime in the future. Originally we were informed we ‘d see it by June 2018. Greater than a year later it has yet to materialize, as well as Yu states he’s had problem getting the product top quality he needs out of several Chinese manufacturing facilities he’s attempted dealing with. The new design is supposedly mosting likely to be much easier to put together and also have a heftier crossbar design, among other improvements. He states the new base will be provided in both a “T-Leg” and also “C-Leg” configuration, easing our worry regarding side-load stressing on the lifting columns.

If this brand-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 information on the company is that Yu closed the small Los Angeles workplace as well as has actually relocated it to join with all its other staff members in southeast Asia.

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