The StandDesk was developed by millennials, is marketed straight at millennials, and also has been gobbled up by millennials in impressive quantities. While it lugs a ten-year guarantee (the longest of any kind of Chinese-made base), in this situation it’s not always a trustworthy sign of the expected valuable life of the training columns. But for the rate, the StandDesk is a fantastic lower-cost choice to the UpLift, Jarvis and also other Chinese-made workdesks. In spite of its security issues this is a far much better product than the Autonomous SmartDesk or IKEA Bekant can ever intend to be, as well as a good value overall. It’s the mid-priced offering in the wide group of Chinese-made desks that is winning over customers from both its more affordable and costlier peers.

StandDesk Construction, Configuration, and Gizmos

Building the desk is rather straight forward if you comply with the detailed directions. All of the screws, screws, washers, and spring washers come in different bags that are noted with their location: table top, structure, as well as spares. There’s a consisted of hex tool for attaching all of the bolts right into the framework, or, appear a hex bit into your power tool– simply beware not to over-tighten.

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

Standdesk-Leg

The foot setting up additionally consists of height-adjustable rotation gears to stabilize the front-to-back movement of the desk, which was really handy for the carpeted office floor. I’m also making use of a flooring mat to shield the carpeting from chair wheel damage at sitting elevation, and press the chair back when I’m transitioning to standing elevation.

Standdesk-Foot

The luxurious controller was worth the investment. The buttons are all variable stress programmed, suggesting the up and down arrowheads will readjust the height by 1/10th of an inch with a solitary press, or continually change the elevation by around 0.7 inches per 2nd if you hold the button for two seconds. The memory switches are comparable in design: press to recall the height setup, or hold the button down for 5 seconds to save a new height worth. I’m using button 1 for my resting setting as well as switch 4 for my standing placement, which offers me 2 as well as 3 for anything I could need in the future.

Utilizing my Standdesk

I’ve been making use of the brand-new desk for a couple of weeks and have documented my initial perceptions:

The electric motors are quiet however can be heard in the next area over. It takes perhaps 25 seconds for the desk to totally change from sitting to standing based upon my presets.
I utilize an Ergotron side-by-side keep track of arm (especially this LX design), causing the desk to obtain a little rocky when I change my weight versus the keyboard. In knowledge, I need to have acquired the crossbar upgrade for my workdesk after identifying the weight of my displays. If you intend to do a twin monitor setup, get the bar.

Since gravity compresses the discs in a human spinal column, I require to raise the desk greater in the early morning as well as lower it at night.

An anti-fatigue mat is absolutely crucial for long duration standing. I bought an Octagonal floor covering from SmartCells, using rubber “cells” that are envisioned below.

Efficiency

Despite any type of issues I might have had with the phone or the cookie-cutter layout, practically every one of those worries removed once I actually got down to using this thing.

Although I didn’t assume it was also feasible, the StandDesk in some way handles to be much more stable than the Jarvis, both at sitting and also standing heights. Most days I like to run my Jarvis at max height while pressed versus my wall surface; not always due to the fact that it’s that unsteady, yet even if I desire as much security as I can obtain.

The StandDesk one ups the gambit even better, confirming to be equally as constant by itself at standing elevation as the Jarvis is with wall support. This is all without the company’s bar addition, which they assert adds a lot more stability when purchased as a part of the bundle deal.When it involves weight tolerance, the StandDesk shares yet much more statistics with the Jarvis, being rated for as much as 350 lbs of weight capacity.

I’ve been using the desk for about 3 weeks now for daily job (as well as complying with standing desk best techniques), whether it’s typing out evaluations like this one from our desktop or a laptop computer from time to time. The desk stands up well against non-coastered beverages, and also the surface in addition to the desk still feels just as smooth and glossy as the day I opened it despite days of sweaty wrists wresting on it and also numerous clean downs with a cloth.

Though I never intentionally try to dent any kind of workdesks too hard, during some lighter tests (tossing a collection of tricks onto it from a distance, as an example), it still held up without a lot of noticeable indicators of damage.

When I determined the sound outcome of the desk while it rose from a resting setting to standing as well as back once again, it was by much the quietest we have actually evaluated. I can barely get it to make more than regarding 9.5 dB of sound, so if your biggest problem is the whirr of your electric motor, this is absolutely the one for you.

Client service

Currently, normally I do not include much regarding the customer service assistance of any given company, only because I feel that in general if an item functions the method its intended to, I should not ever have a factor to call them to begin with. As well as while I want I can say that held true throughout my experience with StandDesk, I simply can not finish this evaluation without stating the various, apparently unlimited problems I encountered attempting to get my workdesk created.

For starters, the desk I was sent out didn’t have any memory phone included initially, which meant I had no way of really controlling the up/down feature on the desk itself. I called StandDesk concerning this problem, that got back to me around a day later with an apology and an assurance that a new one would be shipped out shortly.

Standdesk review handset

The source of all our problems …
Concerning 4 days later on a handset showed up in the mail. The mobile phone initially activated, but it wasn’t long prior to I discovered that none of the programmable switches worked, nor did the down switch, but for some reason the “memory” button managed the down function just fine. I got in touch with the business once again, and they apologized for the mixup as well as said they would certainly have a brand-new panel and also control box out to me within the week.

Over 2 weeks later on my brand-new panel as well as control box arrived. Once I mounted them both the desk finally began working the way it was meant to, however not after nearly a month of waiting as well as backward and forward with a business that could not keep in mind to ship a core component of their product inside the same box from the beginning.

Things to Consider

In spite of its bankable features, this stand up desk also has its own drawbacks. Because no single stand desk can catch all of the functions that you may require, you may consider these in your decision-making.

Absence of a Crossbar as standard

Not having a maintaining bar is definitely not a deal-breaker, especially taking into consideration several of our various other favorite desks such as the Totally Jarvis additionally do not have one. This workdesk does have one if you desire, but it is a paid add-on (a lot more on this later on too).

The crossbar is seen by some as a limitation, making it harder to place your legs easily listed below the desk. Others, on the other hand, find that they give added stability, often important when desks are fully expanded.

We have not review any type of issues of the security of this desk, so we don’t believe its something to actually be worried about, although if you really wanted a desk with a crossbar after that we recommend you have a look at the Varidesk ProDesk 60 Electric.

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

Security

The security of a standing workdesk is just one of one of the most vital facets of these workdesks. Without a stable workdesk you’ll locate it hard to focus, which might cause you becoming less thinking about utilizing the desk at standing height. To get the most effective return on your financial investment, you’ll wish to be happy when utilizing the desk.

Because the StandDesk Simple is the very first desk that I have evaluated with an optional cross support, I will certainly break down my stability tests right into 2 areas. Both examinations will certainly include the common front to back rocking test and also a left to right wobble. The very first will certainly lack the cross support as well as the second will be with it. Just to note, StandDesk.co claims that the enhancement of the cross assistance can enhance stability by up to 15%. I have no concept just how they thought of that number.

Without Cross Assistance

Left to Right: The wobble examination was a various scenario. StandDesk Simple was the second workdesk that I tested that wobbled at the bottom with weight on the desktop computer. The initial was the IKEA Bekant. By the time it got to 36″ the shaking movement was bad. Beyond this factor it would affect your job.

With Cross Assistance

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

Delegated Right: Including the cross assistance to the StandDesk improved the wobble motion for lower heights. With the cross support the wobble activity really did not begin till you reached 35″. By 39″ the wobble activity became poor.

Keep in mind: It’s really vital with adjustable standing workdesks to fully tighten all equipment. If there is hardware that is not totally tight, the movement experienced when encompassed standing height will certainly be exaggerated. This is specifically true with a workdesk framework that includes 32 screws, there are far way too many factors at which the desk has a possibility to relocate.

Verdict

Like all the Chinese bases we’ve checked in our labs, we need to tighten our referral on the StandDesk Pro to shorter individuals with narrower desktop computers, as the security just isn’t there for a big mass elevated high off the ground. American-made desks will certainly be better suited to these applications, as well as for a relatively noticeable factor. Practically all American-made bases are made in United States manufacturing facilities that are owned by Swedish, Danish or German business that invented this sector, and also their typical residents are a great deal taller than the typical 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 equipment, and also large experience making standing desk bases, it goes without saying.

However if you’re not as well tall, don’t have an excessive amount of hefty equipment on your desktop computer, and do not require too wide of a workdesk, the StandDesk Pro will offer you great value.

All that might alter with Yu’s guaranteed StandDesk Pro 2.0 design that he anticipates to launch sometime in the future. Initially we were told we ‘d see it by June 2018. Greater than a year later on it has yet to emerge, and Yu states he’s had problem obtaining the item top quality he needs out of numerous Chinese manufacturing facilities he’s attempted working with. The brand-new style is allegedly mosting likely to be much easier to set up and also have a heftier crossbar design, to name a few improvements. He claims the brand-new base will be offered in both a “T-Leg” and also “C-Leg” arrangement, relieving our concern about side-load worrying on the lifting columns.

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

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

The motors are quiet yet can be heard in the next area over. It takes perhaps 25 seconds for the desk to totally change from resting to standing based on my presets.
I use an Ergotron side-by-side monitor arm (especially this LX design), causing the desk to obtain a little rough when I move my weight against the key-board.

Due to the fact that gravity compresses the discs in a human spinal column, I require to raise the desk higher in the early morning and also lower it at night.

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

Performance

In spite of any kind of issues I may have had with the phone or the cookie-cutter style, pretty much all of those problems gotten rid of when I in fact got down to using this thing.

Although I didn’t think it was even feasible, the StandDesk somehow takes care of to be a lot more stable than the Jarvis, both at resting and standing elevations. A lot of days I such as to run my Jarvis at max height while pushed against my wall; not always because it’s that wobbly, but even if I want as much security as I can obtain.

The StandDesk one ups the gambit even additionally, showing to be just as steady on its own at standing elevation as the Jarvis is with wall support.

The desk holds up well versus non-coastered drinks, and also the coating in addition to the desk still feels equally as smooth and slick as the day I opened it despite days of perspiring wrists wresting on it as well as several clean downs with a dustcloth.

Though I never ever deliberately attempt to damage any workdesks too hard, during some lighter tests (throwing a set of keys onto it from a distance, for example), it still stood up without way too many visible indications of damage.

When I measured the noise result of the desk while it increased from a resting position to standing and also back once more, it was by far the quietest we’ve examined. I can hardly get it to make greater than about 9.5 dB of sound, so if your largest issue is the whirr of your motor, this is certainly the one for you.

Customer Service

Now, usually I don’t consist of much concerning the customer care support of any type of given company, just since I really feel that in general if a product functions the way its supposed to, I shouldn’t ever have a reason to call them in the first place. And also while I wish I could state that was the case during my experience with StandDesk, I merely can not finish this review without discussing the countless, apparently countless issues I came across trying to get my workdesk created.

For starters, the desk I was sent out didn’t have any memory mobile consisted of originally, which meant I had no chance of actually controlling the up/down feature on the desk itself. I contacted StandDesk concerning this issue, that returned to me around a day later on with an apology as well as a pledge that a new one would certainly be shipped quickly.

Standdesk testimonial handset

The source of all our issues …

I spoke to the business again, and also they excused the mixup and also stated they would have a brand-new panel as well as control box bent on me within the week.

Points to Think about

Lack of a Bar as requirement

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

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

Security

The stability of a standing workdesk is one of one of the most crucial facets of these desks. Without a stable workdesk you’ll find it hard to concentrate, which could result in you becoming much less curious about utilizing the desk at standing elevation. To get the most effective return on your financial investment, you’ll want to enjoy when using the desk.

Since the StandDesk Simple is the initial desk that I have evaluated with an optional cross support, I will certainly break down my security tests right into two sections. Both examinations will certainly consist of the regular front to back rocking test and a left to appropriate wobble. The first will lack the cross support and the second will be with it. Simply to note, StandDesk.co claims that the enhancement of the cross assistance can boost security by approximately 15%. I have no suggestion exactly how they generated that number.

Without Cross Support

Left to Right: The wobble test was a different circumstance. StandDesk Simple was the second desk that I examined that wobbled near the bottom with weight on the desktop computer. The first was the IKEA Bekant. By the time it got to 36″ the rocking movement was bad. Beyond this factor it would 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 shaking activity was bad.

Delegated Right: Including the cross assistance to the StandDesk boosted the wobble movement for reduced elevations. With the cross assistance the wobble activity really did not start up until you reached 35″. By 39″ the wobble activity became poor.

Keep in mind: It’s really vital with flexible standing desks to totally tighten up all hardware. If there is hardware that is not entirely limited, the movement experienced when included standing height will certainly be overemphasized. This is especially real with a desk framework that consists of 32 screws, there are much way too many factors at which the desk has an opportunity to relocate.

Verdict

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

But if you’re not also tall, do not have an inordinate quantity of hefty tools on your desktop, and don’t require too wide of a desk, the StandDesk Pro will provide you excellent value.

All that could alter with Yu’s assured StandDesk Pro 2.0 style that he anticipates to release at some time in the future. Initially we were told we would certainly see it by June 2018. Greater than a year later it has yet to appear, as well as Yu states he’s had problem getting the product quality he requires out of a number of Chinese manufacturing facilities he’s tried dealing with.

He says the new base will be supplied in both a “T-Leg” and “C-Leg” arrangement, reducing our issue concerning side-load worrying on the training columns.

If this brand-new base ever before comes to market we’ll update you right here. But we’re not holding our breath any longer as one of the most recent news on the company is that Yu closed the tiny Los Angeles office and has moved it to join with all its various other staff members in southeast Asia.

In the meantime, a brand-new $399 standing desk with impressive performance has actually been present with the new joint venture between US-based iMovR and also China-based Eureka, the i1 electric standing desk. While limited in dimension and also color options, it has taken the mantle far from StandDesk’s long-ago standing as the best standing desk under $400.
