The StandDesk was produced by millennials, is marketed directly at millennials, and has been demolished by millennials in impressive quantities. While it brings a ten-year guarantee (the longest of any Chinese-made base), in this situation it’s not necessarily a reliable sign 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 and other Chinese-made workdesks. Regardless of its stability problems this is a much better product than the Autonomous SmartDesk or IKEA Bekant might ever before want to be, and a good value on the whole. It’s the mid-priced offering in the broad classification of Chinese-made desks that is gaining customers from both its less expensive and also costlier peers.

StandDesk Construction, Configuration, and also Gizmos

Developing the desk is pretty easy if you adhere to the comprehensive instructions. All of the screws, bolts, washers, as well as spring washing machines been available in different bags that are marked with their destination: tabletop, framework, and also spares. There’s an included hex tool for fastening all of the bolts right into the structure, or, pop in a hex bit into your power device– simply take care not to over-tighten.

Every one of the components have a premium quality coating to them with rounded edges 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!

Standdesk-Leg

The foot assembly also consists of height-adjustable rotation equipments to support the front-to-back movement of the desk, which was really practical for the carpeted home office flooring. I’m additionally making use of a flooring mat to safeguard the carpet from chair wheel damages at sitting elevation, and press the chair when I’m transitioning to standing height.

Standdesk-Foot

The luxurious controller was worth the investment. The switches are all variable pressure configured, suggesting the up and down arrows will certainly change the height by 1/10th of an inch with a solitary press, or constantly change the elevation by about 0.7 inches per second if you hold the switch for 2 seconds. The memory switches are similar in style: press to remember the height setup, or hold the button down for 5 seconds to store a brand-new elevation worth. I’m making use of button 1 for my sitting setting and switch 4 for my standing setting, which offers me 2 and also 3 for anything I could need in the future.

Using my Standdesk

I have actually been making use of the brand-new desk for a couple of weeks and also have actually jotted down my first perceptions:

The motors are quiet however can be listened to in the next area over. It takes perhaps 25 secs for the desk to completely transition from resting to standing based upon my presets.
I use an Ergotron side-by-side keep track of arm (specifically this LX version), creating the desk to get a little rocky when I shift my weight versus the key-board. In knowledge, I ought to have bought the bar upgrade for my workdesk after determining the weight of my displays. If you intend to do a dual display setup, get the bar.

Since gravity compresses the discs in a human spinal column, I require to increase the desk greater in the morning and also lower it at night.

An anti-fatigue mat is absolutely vital for long duration standing. I acquired an Octagonal mat from SmartCells, utilizing rubber “cells” that are pictured below.

Efficiency

Despite any problems I may have had with the handset or the cookie-cutter style, virtually every one of those issues gotten rid of when I actually came down to utilizing this point.

I didn’t believe it was also feasible, the StandDesk in some way manages to be even much more stable than the Jarvis, both at resting and also standing elevations. Most days I such as to run my Jarvis at max height while pushed versus my wall surface; not necessarily because it’s that unsteady, yet even if I want as much security as I can get.

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

I have actually been utilizing the desk for about 3 weeks now for daily job (as well as adhering to standing desk best techniques), whether it’s inputting out testimonials such as this one from our desktop or a laptop every so often. The desk holds up well against non-coastered drinks, as well as the finish in addition to the desk still feels equally as smooth as well as glossy as the day I opened it regardless of days of sweaty wrists wresting on it and also numerous clean downs with a rag.

Though I never ever purposefully attempt to damage any desks also hard, throughout some lighter examinations (throwing a collection of secrets onto it from a distance, as an example), it still stood up without too many noticeable signs of damages.

Finally, when I determined the noise result of the desk while it rose from a resting setting to standing and back again, it was by far the quietest we’ve examined yet. I can barely get it to make greater than regarding 9.5 dB of sound, so if your biggest issue is the whirr of your motor, this is absolutely the one for you.

Customer Service

Currently, typically I don’t include much about the client service support of any provided company, just due to the fact that I really feel that as a whole if a product works the means its intended to, I should not ever before have a reason to call them to begin with. As well as while I desire I could state that was the case throughout my experience with StandDesk, I merely can not complete this review without mentioning the many, seemingly limitless issues I encountered trying to obtain my desk assembled.

For beginners, the desk I was sent out didn’t have any type of memory handset included initially, which suggested I had no chance of in fact controlling the up/down function on the desk itself. I contacted StandDesk concerning this issue, who returned to me around a day later with an apology as well as a pledge that a brand-new one would be shipped out quickly.

Standdesk review handset

The source of all our issues …
Regarding four days later on a mobile phone arrived in the mail. The handset initially switched on, however it had not been long before I saw that none of the programmable switches worked, neither did the down switch, but for some reason the “memory” button dealt with the down feature simply fine. I contacted the business again, and also they excused the mixup and said they would certainly have a new panel as well as control box out to me within the week.

Over two weeks later on my new panel and also control box showed up. As soon as I installed them both the desk ultimately began working the method it was expected to, yet not after almost a month of waiting and to and fro with a company that could not remember to deliver a core part of their product inside the very same box from the beginning.

Points to Take into consideration

In spite of its bankable attributes, this stand desk likewise has its own disadvantages. Because no singular stand desk could capture all of the features that you might need, you might consider these in your decision-making.

Absence of a Bar as requirement

Not having a supporting bar is definitely not a deal-breaker, especially taking into consideration a few of our other preferred desks such as the Completely Jarvis also don’t have one. This desk does have one if you desire, yet it is a paid add-on (extra on this later on as well).

The crossbar is seen by some as a limitation, making it more challenging to put your legs comfortably below the desk. Others, on the other hand, locate that they give added security, usually important when workdesks are totally expanded.

We have not read any type of problems of the security of this desk, so we do not think its something to actually be worried concerning, although if you truly wanted a workdesk with a bar after that we suggest you have a look at the Varidesk ProDesk 60 Electric.

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

Stability

The security of a standing desk is one of one of the most vital aspects of these workdesks. Without a steady desk you’ll locate it difficult to concentrate, which could cause you ending up being much less thinking about making use of the desk at standing elevation. To get the most effective return on your financial investment, you’ll intend to be happy when utilizing the desk.

Since the StandDesk Simple is the initial desk that I have actually checked with an optional cross support, I will break down my stability examinations right into two sections. Both tests will include the common front to back rocking test as well as an entrusted to best wobble. The very first will lack the cross support and also the secondly will certainly be with it. Just to note, StandDesk.co says that the addition of the cross assistance can enhance security by up to 15%. I have no idea exactly how they thought of that number.

Without Cross Assistance

Left to Right: The wobble test was a different situation. StandDesk Simple was the 2nd desk that I evaluated 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 motion was bad. Beyond this factor it would certainly influence your work.

With Cross Support

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

Left to Right: Including the cross assistance to the StandDesk boosted the wobble activity for lower heights. With the cross assistance the wobble movement didn’t start till you reached 35″. By 39″ the wobble movement ended up being bad.

Keep in mind: It’s really crucial with flexible standing workdesks to totally tighten up all hardware. If there is hardware that is not totally tight, the movement experienced when extended to standing height will be overemphasized. This is especially real with a workdesk structure that consists of 32 bolts, there are far too many points at which the desk has a chance to relocate.

Verdict

Like all the Chinese bases we’ve evaluated in our laboratories, we need to narrow our recommendation on the StandDesk Pro to much shorter customers with narrower desktop computers, as the security simply isn’t there for a large mass boosted high off the ground. American-made desks will certainly be better fit to these applications, and for a relatively obvious factor. Basically all American-made bases are made in United States manufacturing facilities that are owned by Swedish, Danish or German companies that developed this sector, as well as their ordinary citizens are a great deal taller than the typical Asian consumer, so they started making longer-stroke training legs a very long time back. And also they have far more robotic automation, laser-cutting equipment, and large experience making standing workdesk bases, obviously.

Yet if you’re not as well tall, do not have an inordinate amount of hefty tools on your desktop, and don’t require as well wide of a workdesk, the StandDesk Pro will certainly provide you good value.

All that might transform with Yu’s guaranteed StandDesk Pro 2.0 design that he expects to launch at some point in the future. Originally we were told we ‘d see it by June 2018. Greater than a year later on it has yet to appear, and also Yu states he’s had trouble obtaining the product quality he requires out of several Chinese manufacturing facilities he’s tried dealing with. The brand-new design is supposedly mosting likely to be a lot easier to put together as well as have a heftier crossbar style, to name a few refinements. He says the brand-new base will be offered in both a “T-Leg” and “C-Leg” arrangement, alleviating our issue about side-load stressing on the lifting columns.

If this brand-new base ever before concerns market we’ll update you below. We’re not holding our breath any kind of longer as the most current information on the company is that Yu closed the small Los Angeles office as well as has moved it to join with all its other employees in southeast Asia.

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

The StandDesk was created by millennials, is marketed straight at millennials, and has actually been demolished by millennials in outstanding quantities. While it carries a ten-year guarantee (the longest of any type of Chinese-made base), in this case it’s not always a reputable indicator of the expected useful life of the training columns. For the rate, the StandDesk is an excellent lower-cost option to the UpLift, Jarvis as well as other Chinese-made desks. Despite its security concerns this is a much much better product than the Autonomous SmartDesk or IKEA Bekant could ever before wish to be, and also a good value on the whole. It’s the mid-priced offering in the broad category of Chinese-made workdesks that is winning over customers from both its cheaper and also more expensive peers.

StandDesk Building And Construction, Arrangement, as well as Devices

Building the desk is pretty straight forward if you adhere to the comprehensive instructions. Every one of the screws, screws, washing machines, as well as spring washers can be found in different bags that are noted with their destination: tabletop, framework, as well as spares. There’s a consisted of hex device for securing every one of the bolts right into the structure, or, appear a hex bit right into your power device– just beware not to over-tighten.

Every one of the components have an excellent quality surface to them with rounded edges to stay clear of 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 setting up also includes height-adjustable rotation gears to support the front-to-back activity of the desk, which was really helpful for the carpeted office floor. I’m also using a flooring mat to secure the carpet from chair wheel damages at sitting height, and press the chair when I’m transitioning to standing elevation.

Standdesk-Foot

The luxurious controller deserved the financial investment. The switches are all variable stress set, meaning the up and down arrows will certainly change the elevation by 1/10th of an inch with a solitary press, or continually adjust the elevation by about 0.7 inches per 2nd if you hold the button for two seconds. The memory switches are similar in style: push to remember the height setting, or hold the button down for 5 secs to keep a new height worth. I’m making use of button 1 for my resting position and also switch 4 for my standing placement, which provides me 2 as well as 3 for anything I could require in the future.

Standdesk-Memory-unit

Using my Standdesk

I have actually been using the new desk for a few weeks and have made a note of my initial impressions:

The electric motors are quiet yet can be heard in the next area over. It takes perhaps 25 seconds for the desk to fully shift from sitting to standing based upon my presets.
I make use of an Ergotron side-by-side monitor arm (especially this LX version), triggering the desk to obtain a little rocky when I move my weight versus the keyboard. In knowledge, I need to have purchased the bar upgrade for my desk after identifying the weight of my monitors. If you prepare to do a dual screen configuration, obtain the bar.

Since gravity presses the discs in a human spinal column, I need to elevate the desk greater in the early morning and lower it in the evening.

An anti-fatigue floor covering is definitely vital for long duration standing. I purchased an Octagonal mat from SmartCells, utilizing rubber “cells” that are imagined below.

Performance

In spite of any kind of troubles I might have had with the handset or the cookie-cutter layout, basically every one of those worries gotten rid of once I actually got down to using this point.

I really did not assume it was even possible, the StandDesk somehow takes care of to be even extra steady than the Jarvis, both at sitting and standing heights. A lot of days I such as to run my Jarvis at max elevation while pushed versus my wall; not necessarily because it’s that wobbly, but even if I desire as much security as I can obtain.

The StandDesk one ups the gambit even better, confirming to be equally as steady by itself at standing height as the Jarvis is with wall support. This is all without the company’s bar enhancement, which they claim includes a lot more security when purchased as a part of the package deal.When it pertains to weight resistance, the StandDesk shares yet even more stats with the Jarvis, being rated for as much as 350 lbs of weight capacity.

I’ve been utilizing the desk for regarding three weeks now for everyday work (and also complying with standing desk finest techniques), whether it’s inputting out evaluations such as this one from our desktop or a laptop every so often. The desk holds up well against non-coastered drinks, and also the coating in addition to the desk still really feels just as smooth and also slick as the day I opened it despite days of sweaty wrists wresting on it and numerous wipe downs with a rag.

I never intentionally try to damage any workdesks too hard, during some lighter examinations (tossing a set of tricks onto it from a range, for instance), it still held up without as well lots of noticeable signs of damage.

Lastly, when I determined the noise output of the desk while it increased from a sitting setting to standing and back once more, it was without a doubt the quietest we have actually tested yet. I can hardly get it to make more than regarding 9.5 dB of noise, so if your greatest worry is the whirr of your motor, this is definitely the one for you.

Customer care

Currently, normally I don’t include much concerning the customer support support of any kind of provided business, just since I feel that as a whole if an item works the way its intended to, I should not ever have a reason to call them in the first place. And also while I wish I can say that held true throughout my experience with StandDesk, I merely can not finish this evaluation without discussing the many, apparently endless troubles I ran into attempting to obtain my desk created.

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

Standdesk review handset

The source of all our troubles …
About 4 days later on a handset got here in the mail. The handset at first turned on, however it wasn’t long before I saw that none of the programmable buttons worked, neither did the down button, but also for some factor the “memory” button dealt with the down feature just great. I contacted the company once more, and also they excused the mixup and stated they would certainly have a new panel and also control box out to me within the week.

Over 2 weeks later on my new panel as well as control box arrived. As soon as I installed them both the desk finally began working the way it was intended to, but not after almost a month of waiting as well as to and fro with a company that could not keep in mind to ship a core part of their product inside the exact same box from the beginning.

Things to Take into consideration

Despite its bankable features, this stand up workdesk likewise has its own disadvantages. Since no singular stand desk might record all of the functions that you might need, you may take into consideration these in your decision-making.

Lack of a Crossbar as standard

Not having a stabilizing bar is absolutely not a deal-breaker, especially taking into consideration several of our other favored workdesks such as the Completely Jarvis additionally do not have one. In fact, this desk does have one if you want, but it is a paid add-on (extra on this later on too).

The bar is seen by some as a barrier, making it tougher to position your legs pleasantly listed below the desk. Others, on the other hand, locate that they offer included stability, commonly critical when desks are completely extended.

We have not check out any kind of problems of the stability of this desk, so we don’t believe its something to actually be worried concerning, although if you actually desired a desk with a crossbar then we advise you take a look at the Varidesk ProDesk 60 Electric.

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

Stability

The stability of a standing desk is among the most vital aspects of these workdesks. Without a stable desk you’ll locate it hard to focus, which could result in you coming to be less interested in utilizing the desk at standing elevation. To get the very best return on your financial investment, you’ll want to enjoy when making use of the desk.

Since the StandDesk Simple is the very first desk that I have checked with an optional cross assistance, I will certainly break down my security examinations into two areas. Both examinations will consist of the normal front to back rocking test and an entrusted to ideal wobble. The first will certainly be without the cross support and also the second will certainly be with it. Simply to keep in mind, StandDesk.co states that the enhancement of the cross support can raise security by approximately 15%. I have no idea exactly how they developed that number.

Without Cross Assistance

Left to Right: The wobble examination was a different circumstance. StandDesk Simple was the 2nd workdesk that I examined that wobbled at the bottom with weight on the desktop computer. The first was the IKEA Bekant. By the time it reached 36″ the shaking movement was bad. Yet factor it would influence your job.

With Cross Assistance

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

Delegated Right: Including the cross support to the StandDesk enhanced the wobble movement for reduced elevations. With the cross support the wobble activity didn’t begin till you got to 35″. By 39″ the wobble movement came to be poor.

Keep in mind: It’s extremely important with flexible standing desks to completely tighten up all equipment. If there is equipment that is not completely tight, the movement experienced when encompassed standing elevation will be exaggerated. This is specifically true with a workdesk framework that consists of 32 bolts, there are much way too many points at which the desk has a possibility to move.

Verdict

Like all the Chinese bases we’ve checked in our labs, we have to tighten our referral on the StandDesk Pro to shorter users with narrower desktops, 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 also for a rather evident reason. Essentially all American-made bases are made in US manufacturing facilities that are had by Swedish, Danish or German companies that created this market, and their average people are a lot taller than the average Eastern consumer, so they began making longer-stroke training legs a very long time back. As well as they have even more robot automation, laser-cutting tools, as well as sheer experience making standing workdesk bases, it goes without saying.

If you’re not also high, don’t have an extreme quantity of hefty equipment on your desktop, as well as do not need too broad of a desk, the StandDesk Pro will certainly offer you excellent bang for your buck.

All that could alter with Yu’s promised StandDesk Pro 2.0 layout that he anticipates to release at some point in the future. Originally we were informed we would certainly see it by June 2018. More than a year later on it has yet to materialize, and also Yu states he’s had problem obtaining the product top quality he requires out of several Chinese manufacturing facilities he’s tried working with. The brand-new design is supposedly going to be a lot easier to construct and also have a heftier bar design, to name a few refinements. He states the new base will be supplied in both a “T-Leg” as well as “C-Leg” configuration, alleviating our issue regarding side-load worrying on the lifting columns.

If this new base ever concerns market we’ll upgrade you here. We’re not holding our breath any type of longer as the most recent information on the business is that Yu closed the little Los Angeles workplace as well as has moved it to join with all its other workers in southeast Asia.

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