The thing that was the most important to me when buying an adjustable desk was whether it was sturdy at it's full height, and is it comfortable to sit at when my desk chair is raised all the way. The answer to both of those questions for this product is a resounding yes. I've been looking for a desk for a long time that meets the needs of a giant dude, and at 6'5" I'm happy to say I've finally found one. Very good build quality, assembly was pretty painless, and the manual crank only takes about 25 seconds to raise it all the way up.
I rarely give 5 star reviews. This desk deserves it. From the moment I pulled out parts from the box, I noticed how clean and even the power coat was on the legs and feet. This was a very good sign. The item came faster than expected. It went together quickly and easily.It's very sturdy and very adjustable to the length of the desk you choose. If I were to ding the unit for anything, it would be the plastic crank handle. While I don't think it will fail under normal use, it's still plastic. The cost of the unit was reasonable. If I were to buy it again, I would buy it bundled with the topper they offer. I ended up buying the two separately and think I could have saved some time and money had I bought the combo.The desk raises and lowers with little effort but it does take 20 seconds or so to move it from seated to standing position. I don't plan on raising and lowering the desk very often so the the manual crank model suits me fine. If you think you may be changing height very often you may want to look at their electric model. All in all, this is a wonderful stand up desk that I highly recommend. Love it!
desk was easy to assemble and feels very sturdy once set up. came well packaged in a box that, while heavy, was about the size of a christmas tree, so it was pretty easy to get up my stairs. feels very smooth when raising and lowering and i don't experience any wobbling or shaking when working at the desk.one important thing to note is that the crank needs a lot of space to mount under the desk. i bought a tabletop from a hardware store that is just under 24" wide and was unable to mount the crank. if you're using a narrow tabletop, it would be a good idea to make sure you will be able to mount the crank before you start drilling holes and attach the tabletop. also, be aware that it doesn't fold up, so on a narrow tabletop, it might stick out the bottom and be a bit in the way. for now, if i want to raise or lower the desk, i put the crank in like a key, use it, and remove it again.
The frame was super easy to assemble, and after staining a $23 4' x 2' project board from the local lumber store, I now have a perfect desk.With the 24" depth, the handle is not as hidden as I would like, but I knew that ahead of time from other reviewers, and I made the choice to go with the cheaper top over a hidden handle. It was easy enough to assemble, that I know I can always change the top to remedy the issue if it bothers me.
I used this desk frame along with the Saljan ikea countertop 74”. Easy to crank up and down. It’s the perfect desk! During assembly, make sure you don’t extend the desk frame too much. It doesn’t tell you how long you can extend on the manual, but the long piece under the desk that allows the two sides of the desk to align is only a certain length. Make sure you don’t drill holes until you know the long piece will fit. I made that mistake and now I got 8 extra holes.
