The StandDesk was created by millennials, is marketed directly at millennials, and has been gobbled up by millennials in remarkable volumes. While it lugs a ten-year warranty (the lengthiest of any type of Chinese-made base), in this situation it’s not necessarily a trusted sign of the expected useful life of the lifting columns. But for the cost, the StandDesk is a terrific lower-cost alternative to the UpLift, Jarvis and various other Chinese-made workdesks. Regardless of its stability problems this is a much better item than the Autonomous SmartDesk or IKEA Bekant could ever before wish to be, and a good value in general. It’s the mid-priced offering in the broad category of Chinese-made desks that is gaining clients from both its less expensive as well as more expensive peers.

StandDesk Construction, Arrangement, as well as Gadgets

Building the desk is quite straight forward if you adhere to the detailed directions. Every one of the screws, bolts, washers, and also springtime washers come in different bags that are noted with their destination: tabletop, framework, as well as spares. There’s a consisted of hex device for attaching all of the bolts into the structure, or, appear a hex little bit into your power tool– simply be careful not to over-tighten.

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

The foot assembly likewise includes height-adjustable rotation gears to maintain the front-to-back movement of the desk, which was very useful for the carpeted office flooring. I’m additionally making use of a flooring mat to shield the rug from chair wheel damages at sitting elevation, and also press the chair when I’m transitioning to standing elevation.

Standdesk-Foot

The luxurious controller deserved the financial investment. The switches are all variable pressure set, indicating the up and down arrows will certainly readjust the height by 1/10th of an inch with a single press, or continuously change the height by around 0.7 inches per second if you hold the button for two seconds. The memory switches are comparable in layout: press to remember the elevation setup, or hold the button down for five seconds to save a new elevation worth. I’m using button 1 for my sitting position as well as switch 4 for my standing placement, which gives me 2 and 3 for anything I might need in the future.

Using my Standdesk

I have actually been using the new desk for a couple of weeks as well as have jotted down my initial impressions:

The electric motors are quiet however can be listened to in the next area over. It takes probably 25 seconds for the desk to totally shift from resting to standing based upon my presets.
I utilize an Ergotron side-by-side monitor arm (specifically this LX model), triggering the desk to obtain a little rough when I shift my weight against the key-board. In knowledge, I must have bought the crossbar upgrade for my workdesk after determining the weight of my displays. If you plan to do a dual screen configuration, obtain the crossbar.

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

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

Efficiency

Despite any kind of issues I might have had with the mobile or the cookie-cutter design, basically all of those worries washed away as soon as I actually got down to utilizing this point.

Although I didn’t assume it was even possible, the StandDesk somehow handles to be even more steady than the Jarvis, both at sitting as well as standing elevations. Most days I such as to run my Jarvis at max elevation while pressed against my wall; not always due to the fact that it’s that unsteady, but even if I want as much stability as I can obtain.

The StandDesk one ups the gambit also better, verifying 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 bar enhancement, which they assert includes a lot more stability when bought as a part of the package deal.When it concerns weight tolerance, the StandDesk shares yet much more statistics with the Jarvis, being rated for up to 350 lbs of weight capability.

I have actually been making use of the desk for regarding three weeks now for daily work (and adhering to standing workdesk best methods), whether it’s keying out evaluations similar to this one from our desktop computer or a laptop periodically. The desk holds up well versus non-coastered beverages, and the coating on top of the desk still feels equally as smooth and glossy as the day I opened it in spite of days of perspiring wrists wresting on it as well as multiple wipe downs with a cloth.

Though I never purposefully attempt to dent any workdesks too hard, throughout some lighter tests (tossing a set of secrets onto it from a distance, for example), it still stood up without way too many visible indications of damages.

When I gauged the sound output of the desk while it rose from a sitting placement to standing and also back again, it was by much the quietest we have actually evaluated. I might hardly get it to make more than regarding 9.5 dB of noise, so if your largest issue is the whirr of your motor, this is absolutely the one for you.

Customer Service

Now, typically I do not consist of much about the customer care assistance of any type of given firm, just due to the fact that I feel that generally if a product works the means its supposed to, I should not ever before have a reason to call them in the first place. And while I wish I might claim that was the case during my experience with StandDesk, I just can’t complete this review without pointing out the numerous, relatively countless troubles I experienced trying to get my workdesk put together.

For starters, the desk I was sent out didn’t have any memory phone included initially, which implied I had no way of in fact managing the up/down function 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 also a promise that a new one would be shipped out quickly.

Standdesk evaluation handset

The resource of all our problems …
About four days later a phone arrived in the mail. The mobile initially turned on, but it had not been long before I noticed that none of the programmable switches worked, neither did the down button, however, for some factor the “memory” switch handled the down function just great. I contacted the business once again, and they excused the mixup and said they would 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 installed them both the desk ultimately began functioning the method it was supposed to, but not after virtually a month of waiting and also backward and forward with a company that couldn’t bear in mind to ship a core part of their product inside the very same box from the beginning.

Points to Think about

In spite of its bankable features, this stand up workdesk additionally has its very own disadvantages. Considering that no singular stand workdesk could catch all of the features that you may need, you may take into consideration these in your decision-making.

Lack of a Crossbar as requirement

Not having a maintaining crossbar is absolutely not a deal-breaker, particularly considering several of our various other favored workdesks such as the Completely Jarvis also do not have one. This desk does have one if you desire, however it is a paid add-on (extra on this later as well).

The bar is seen by some as a barrier, making it tougher to position your legs conveniently listed below the desk. Others, on the other hand, discover that they offer included stability, commonly critical when workdesks are totally prolonged.

We have not review any kind of issues of the security of this workdesk, so we don’t believe its something to really be worried regarding, although if you truly wanted a desk with a bar then we suggest you take a look at the Varidesk ProDesk 60 Electric.

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

Security

The stability of a standing desk is just one of one of the most essential facets of these desks. Without a stable workdesk you’ll find it hard to focus, which could cause you coming to be less thinking about using the desk at standing elevation. To obtain the best return on your financial investment, you’ll intend to be happy when making use of the desk.

Because the StandDesk Simple is the initial desk that I have checked with an optional cross support, I will certainly break down my security tests right into two areas. Both examinations will include the regular front to back rocking examination as well as a left to right wobble. The very first will certainly lack the cross assistance and the secondly will be with it. Simply to note, StandDesk.co states that the addition of the cross assistance can enhance security by as much as 15%. I have no idea just how they generated that number.

Without Cross Assistance

Left to Right: The wobble examination was a different scenario. StandDesk Simple was the 2nd desk that I checked that wobbled at the bottom with weight on the desktop. The first was the IKEA Bekant. By the time it reached 36″ the shaking motion was bad. Yet factor it would certainly impact your work.

With Cross Assistance

Front to Back: Adding the cross support does not influence the shaking motion. The StandDesk Simple began to experienced a shaking motion at 36″. By 41″ the shaking motion was bad.

Delegated Right: Adding the cross assistance to the StandDesk boosted the wobble motion for lower elevations. With the cross support the wobble activity didn’t start until you reached 35″. By 39″ the wobble movement ended up being bad.

Keep in mind: It’s very crucial with flexible standing workdesks to fully tighten up all equipment. If there is hardware that is not totally limited, the activity experienced when encompassed standing height will certainly be overemphasized. This is specifically real with a workdesk framework that consists of 32 bolts, there are much way too many points at which the desk has a chance to relocate.

Verdict

Like all the Chinese bases we’ve tested in our laboratories, we need to narrow our referral on the StandDesk Pro to much shorter customers with narrower desktop computers, as the stability simply isn’t there for a big mass boosted high off the ground. American-made workdesks will be better suited to these applications, as well as for a rather obvious reason. Basically all American-made bases are made in United States manufacturing facilities that are had by Swedish, Danish or German companies that designed this industry, as well as their ordinary residents are a lot taller than the ordinary Asian customer, so they started making longer-stroke training legs a long period of time earlier. And also they have much more robotic automation, laser-cutting tools, and also large experience making standing desk bases, it goes without saying.

Yet if you’re not as well high, don’t have an inordinate quantity of heavy devices on your desktop computer, as well as do not need too wide of a workdesk, the StandDesk Pro will offer you excellent bang for your buck.

All that might change with Yu’s promised StandDesk Pro 2.0 layout that he expects to release sometime in the future. Originally we were informed we ‘d see it by June 2018. More than a year later it has yet to emerge, as well as Yu states he’s had problem obtaining the product quality he needs out of a number of Chinese manufacturing facilities he’s tried collaborating with. The new design is allegedly mosting likely to be a lot easier to construct as well as have a heftier bar style, among other improvements. He states the brand-new base will certainly be offered in both a “T-Leg” and also “C-Leg” configuration, alleviating our worry concerning side-load stressing on the lifting columns.

If this brand-new base ever comes to market we’ll upgrade you here. But we’re not holding our breath any kind of longer as one of the most current information on the firm is that Yu shut the little Los Angeles workplace and also has actually moved it to join with all its other employees in southeast Asia.

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

For beginners, the desk I was sent really did not have any type of memory mobile phone consisted of initially, which meant I had no chance of in fact controlling the up/down function on the desk itself. I spoke to StandDesk concerning this concern, who returned to me around a day later with an apology and an assurance that a new one would be shipped shortly.

Simply to note, StandDesk.co states that the enhancement of the cross support can raise security by as much as 15%. I have no concept just how they created that number.

Conclusion

Like all the Chinese bases we’ve tested in our laboratories, we need to tighten our suggestion on the StandDesk Pro to much shorter customers with narrower desktops, as the security just isn’t there for a large mass boosted high off the ground. American-made desks will certainly be much better fit to these applications, and also for a fairly apparent reason.

And also they have much more robot automation, laser-cutting devices, and also sheer experience making standing desk bases, needless to say.

Yet if you’re not as well high, do not have an extreme amount of hefty tools on your desktop computer, and do not require too wide of a workdesk, the StandDesk Pro will certainly offer you great value.

All that might change with Yu’s assured StandDesk Pro 2.0 style that he anticipates to release at some point in the future. Initially we were informed we would certainly see it by June 2018. Greater than a year later it has yet to emerge, and Yu states he’s had trouble obtaining the item high quality he requires out of numerous Chinese factories he’s attempted working with.

If this brand-new base ever comes to market we’ll update you here. We’re not holding our breath any longer as the most current information on the firm is that Yu shut the tiny Los Angeles office and also has actually transferred it to join with all its various other staff members in southeast Asia.

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