The StandDesk was produced by millennials, is marketed right at millennials, and also has been gobbled up by millennials in outstanding quantities. While it brings a ten-year service warranty (the lengthiest of any Chinese-made base), in this instance it’s not always a reliable sign of the anticipated helpful life of the training columns. For the cost, the StandDesk is a fantastic lower-cost option to the UpLift, Jarvis and also other Chinese-made desks. Regardless of its stability issues this is a much better product than the Autonomous SmartDesk or IKEA Bekant could ever hope to be, as well as a good value in general. It’s the mid-priced offering in the broad classification of Chinese-made workdesks that is swaying customers from both its less costly and also costlier peers.

StandDesk Building, Configuration, as well as Gizmos

Building the desk is quite direct if you comply with the thorough instructions. Every one of the screws, bolts, washers, as well as spring washing machines come in separate bags that are noted with their destination: table top, framework, and spares. There’s an included hex tool for securing every one of the screws into the framework, or, pop in a hex little bit into your power device– just be careful not to over-tighten.

Every one of the parts have a premium quality finish 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!

Standdesk-Leg

The foot setting up also consists of height-adjustable rotation equipments to maintain the front-to-back activity of the desk, which was very useful for the carpeted office flooring. I’m likewise utilizing a flooring mat to safeguard the carpet from chair wheel damages at resting elevation, as well as push the chair back when I’m transitioning to standing elevation.

Standdesk-Foot

The luxurious controller deserved the financial investment. The buttons are all variable stress set, suggesting the up and down arrowheads will change the height by 1/10th of an inch with a solitary press, or continually readjust the height by around 0.7 inches per 2nd if you hold the button for 2 seconds. The memory switches are comparable in design: press to remember the height setup, or hold the button down for 5 seconds to save a new elevation worth. I’m making use of switch 1 for my sitting placement and also switch 4 for my standing position, which provides me 2 as well as 3 for anything I might require in the future.

Utilizing my Standdesk

I’ve been using the brand-new workdesk for a couple of weeks and have actually made a note of my initial impressions:

The motors are quiet but can be listened to in the following area over. It takes probably 25 seconds for the desk to completely change from sitting to standing based on my presets.
I use an Ergotron side-by-side monitor arm (particularly this LX version), creating the desk to obtain a little rocky when I move my weight against the key-board. In knowledge, I need to have bought the bar upgrade for my desk after determining the weight of my screens. If you plan to do a dual screen setup, get the crossbar.

Since gravity presses the discs in a human back, I require to increase the desk higher in the morning as well as lower it in the evening.

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

Performance

Despite any troubles I may have had with the phone or the cookie-cutter design, pretty much all of those problems gotten rid of when I in fact got down to using this thing.

Although I really did not think it was even possible, the StandDesk in some way handles to be even more stable than the Jarvis, both at sitting and also standing heights. Many days I such as to run my Jarvis at max elevation while pushed against my wall surface; not always due to the fact that it’s that wobbly, yet just because I want as much security as I can get.

The StandDesk one ups the gambit also better, confirming to be just as steady by itself at standing height as the Jarvis is with wall support. This is all without the company’s crossbar enhancement, which they declare includes much more stability when purchased as a part of the bundle deal.When it pertains to weight resistance, the StandDesk shares yet much more stats with the Jarvis, being ranked for as much as 350 pounds of weight capability.

I have actually been making use of the desk for regarding three weeks now for daily work (and following standing workdesk finest techniques), whether it’s inputting out testimonials such as this one from our desktop computer or a laptop computer every now and then. The desk stands up well against non-coastered beverages, and also the coating in addition to the desk still feels equally as smooth and also glossy as the day I opened it regardless of days of sweaty wrists wresting on it and multiple wipe downs with a cloth.

I never ever purposefully attempt to dent any type of desks also hard, during some lighter examinations (throwing a collection of keys onto it from a distance, for instance), it still held up without also lots of noticeable indicators of damages.

Finally, when I gauged the sound outcome of the desk while it climbed from a sitting setting to standing and also back again, it was without a doubt the quietest we have actually checked yet. I could hardly get it to make more than regarding 9.5 dB of noise, so if your most significant problem is the whirr of your motor, this is most definitely the one for you.

Customer Service

Currently, usually I don’t consist of much about the customer support assistance of any kind of given business, only because I really feel that in general if a product works the means its expected to, I should not ever have a factor to call them to begin with. And while I wish I might say that was the case throughout my experience with StandDesk, I merely can’t complete this testimonial without pointing out the various, apparently unlimited issues I came across trying to get my desk assembled.

For beginners, the desk I was sent out didn’t have any memory mobile consisted of originally, which meant I had no way of actually managing the up/down function on the desk itself. I called StandDesk concerning this concern, that returned to me around a day later on with an apology as well as a promise that a brand-new one would be shipped soon.

Standdesk testimonial handset

The resource of all our issues …
Concerning four days later on a phone arrived in the mail. The mobile initially activated, however it had not been long before I discovered that none of the programmable switches functioned, neither did the down button, however, for some factor the “memory” switch handled the down feature simply great. I called the company once again, as well as they apologized for the mixup as well as claimed they would have a new panel and control box bent on me within the week.

Over 2 weeks later my brand-new panel as well as control box arrived. When I mounted them both the desk lastly began working the method it was expected to, yet not after practically a month of waiting and back and forth with a firm that could not remember to deliver a core element of their item inside the exact same box from the get-go.

Things to Consider

Regardless of its bankable functions, this stand up desk also has its very own disadvantages. Considering that no single stand desk could capture every one of the attributes that you may require, you may take into consideration these in your decision-making.

Lack of a Bar as standard

Not having a stabilizing bar is definitely not a deal-breaker, particularly taking into consideration some of our other preferred desks such as the Totally Jarvis likewise don’t have one. This workdesk does have one if you desire, yet it is a paid add-on (much more on this later too).

The crossbar is seen by some as an obstacle, making it tougher to position your legs conveniently listed below the desk. Others, on the other hand, find that they provide included security, typically crucial when workdesks are completely prolonged.

We have not review any kind of grievances of the stability of this desk, so we do not think its something to truly be worried about, although if you actually desired a desk with a crossbar then we suggest you have a look at the Varidesk ProDesk 60 Electric.

StandDesk does offer a different add-on crossbar that you can include to the desk yourself, simply for an added $49.95.

Stability

The security of a standing desk is one of the most essential aspects of these workdesks. Without a stable workdesk you’ll locate it tough to focus, which might bring about you becoming less interested in making use of the desk at standing elevation. To obtain the most effective return on your investment, you’ll intend to be happy when utilizing the desk.

Due To The Fact That the StandDesk Simple is the first desk that I have tested with an optional cross support, I will certainly break down my stability examinations right into 2 sections. Both tests will certainly include the normal front to back rocking test and an entrusted to ideal wobble. The very first will be without the cross support as well as the second will certainly be with it. Just to keep in mind, StandDesk.co states that the addition of the cross assistance can boost security by approximately 15%. I have no concept how they created that number.

Without Cross Assistance

Left to Right: The wobble test was a various situation. StandDesk Simple was the 2nd desk that I examined that tottered at the bottom with weight on the desktop computer. The first was the IKEA Bekant. By the time it got to 36″ the shaking activity misbehaved. Beyond this point it would certainly affect 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 rocking motion at 36″. By 41″ the rocking movement was bad.

Left to Right: Including the cross assistance to the StandDesk improved the wobble motion for reduced elevations. With the cross support the wobble activity didn’t begin till you reached 35″. By 39″ the wobble movement came to be poor.

Note: It’s very essential with adjustable standing desks to completely 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 specifically real with a workdesk frame that consists of 32 screws, there are much too many factors at which the desk has a possibility to relocate.

Verdict

Like all the Chinese bases we’ve examined in our labs, we need to narrow our recommendation on the StandDesk Pro to much shorter users with narrower desktop computers, as the security just isn’t there for a huge mass boosted high off the ground. American-made workdesks will be better suited to these applications, and for a relatively evident factor. Practically all American-made bases are made in United States manufacturing facilities that are owned by Swedish, Danish or German business that developed this sector, and their ordinary citizens are a great deal taller than the average Asian consumer, so they began making longer-stroke training legs a very long time earlier. And also they have far more robotic automation, laser-cutting tools, as well as large experience making standing desk bases, needless to say.

If you’re not as well high, don’t have an extreme amount of hefty equipment on your desktop computer, as well as don’t need also vast of a workdesk, the StandDesk Pro will certainly offer you good bang for your dollar.

All that might change with Yu’s promised StandDesk Pro 2.0 layout that he anticipates to release at some point in the future. Originally we were told we ‘d see it by June 2018. More than a year later it has yet to emerge, and Yu states he’s had problem obtaining the item quality he requires out of a number of Chinese manufacturing facilities he’s attempted working with. The new layout is apparently going to be much easier to set up as well as have a heftier bar design, among other refinements. He claims the brand-new base will certainly be provided in both a “T-Leg” and “C-Leg” arrangement, easing our issue regarding side-load worrying on the lifting columns.

If this brand-new base ever pertains to market we’ll update you here. We’re not holding our breath any type of longer as the most recent news on the firm is that Yu shut the small Los Angeles workplace and has actually transferred it to join with all its other workers in southeast Asia.

In the meantime, a new $399 standing workdesk with excellent performance has actually been present via the brand-new joint endeavor between US-based iMovR and also China-based Eureka, the i1 electrical standing desk. While limited in size and shade choices, it has actually taken the mantle away from StandDesk’s long-ago standing as the most effective standing workdesk under $400.

Efficiency

In spite of any issues I might have had with the mobile or the cookie-cutter layout, virtually every one of those worries removed once I actually came down to utilizing this thing.

Although I really did not believe it was also feasible, the StandDesk in some way handles to be much more steady than the Jarvis, both at resting as well as standing elevations. A lot of days I such as to run my Jarvis at max elevation while pushed versus my wall surface; not necessarily because it’s that unsteady, however even if I desire as much stability as I can get.

I never deliberately attempt to dent any kind of desks also hard, throughout some lighter examinations (throwing a set of tricks onto it from a distance, for example), it still held up without too many visible signs of damage.

When I measured the sound result of the workdesk while it climbed from a resting position to standing and also back once again, it was by far the quietest we’ve evaluated. I could barely get it to make greater than concerning 9.5 dB of sound, so if your largest problem is the whirr of your motor, this is definitely the one for you.

Customer care

Currently, generally I do not consist of much about the customer service support of any kind of offered company, just because I really feel that in general if a product works the way its meant to, I shouldn’t ever have a factor to call them to begin with. And also while I want I might say that was the case during my experience with StandDesk, I simply can not complete this review without discussing the various, apparently limitless issues I encountered attempting to obtain my workdesk created.

For beginners, the desk I was sent really did not have any kind of memory mobile phone included initially, which implied I had no way of really controlling the up/down feature on the desk itself. I spoke to StandDesk regarding this problem, who got back 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 resource of all our troubles …
Regarding 4 days later a handset arrived in the mail. The mobile initially turned on, yet it wasn’t long prior to I discovered that none of the programmable switches worked, nor did the down switch, but also for some reason the “memory” switch dealt with the down function simply great. I got in touch with the company once again, as well as they apologized for the mixup and also claimed they would have a brand-new panel as well as control box out to me within the week.

Points to Consider

In spite of its bankable features, this stand workdesk also has its very own drawbacks. Given that no single stand workdesk can capture all of the features that you may need, you might take into consideration these in your decision-making.

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

Stability

The stability of a standing desk is one of one of the most important elements of these desks. Without a stable desk you’ll find it difficult to focus, which might result in you ending up being much less interested in utilizing the desk at standing height. To obtain the most effective return on your financial investment, you’ll intend to enjoy when utilizing the desk.

Because the StandDesk Simple is the very first desk that I have examined with an optional cross assistance, I will break down my stability tests into 2 areas. Both examinations will certainly include the common front to back rocking examination as well as an entrusted to ideal wobble. The very first will be without the cross support as well as the second will be with it. Simply to keep in mind, StandDesk.co claims that the enhancement of the cross support can enhance stability by up to 15%. I have no suggestion just how they created that number.

The very first was the IKEA Bekant. By the time it reached 36″ the rocking activity was bad. Beyond this point it would certainly affect your job.

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

Entrusted to Right: Including the cross support to the StandDesk improved the wobble motion for lower heights. With the cross support the wobble movement didn’t start until you reached 35″. By 39″ the wobble motion became poor.

Note: It’s extremely crucial with adjustable standing workdesks to completely tighten all hardware. If there is hardware that is not completely tight, the movement experienced when extended to standing elevation will certainly be exaggerated. This is specifically real with a workdesk frame that includes 32 screws, there are much way too many factors at which the desk has a chance to move.

Final thought

Like all the Chinese bases we have actually examined in our laboratories, we have to narrow our recommendation on the StandDesk Pro to shorter users with narrower desktop computers, as the stability simply isn’t there for a big mass raised high off the ground. American-made desks will be much better fit to these applications, as well as for a rather obvious factor. Virtually all American-made bases are made in United States manufacturing facilities that are had by Swedish, Danish or German firms that created this sector, and their typical people are a whole lot taller than the ordinary Asian consumer, so they began making longer-stroke lifting legs a long time ago. And also they have far more robot automation, laser-cutting tools, and sheer experience making standing workdesk bases, it goes without saying.

Yet if you’re not as well high, do not have an extreme quantity of hefty tools on your desktop, as well as don’t need too wide of a desk, the StandDesk Pro will give you great value.

All that might change with Yu’s assured StandDesk Pro 2.0 design that he anticipates to release 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 emerge, as well as Yu states he’s had trouble getting the product top quality he requires out of a number of Chinese manufacturing facilities he’s attempted collaborating with. The brand-new style is apparently going to be much easier to set up and also have a heftier crossbar design, among other improvements. He states the new base will be supplied in both a “T-Leg” and “C-Leg” configuration, easing our problem about side-load stressing on the training columns.

If this brand-new base ever comes to market we’ll update you below. However we’re not holding our breath any kind of longer as one of the most recent news on the business is that Yu closed the little Los Angeles office and has moved it to join with all its various other workers in southeast Asia.

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