Can anyone recommend an electric standup desk?




The ones here look good, and well priced - but I'm wondering if they'll be wobbly at the larger 1800 sizes




PB Tech has similar looking ones for slightly more expensive.

We have quite a number of desks very very similar to the one you have linked. They are not wobbly at all.


We also have the 1800 corner desks, which I also couldn't recommend enough.

Consider the options of a fixed high desk and using a high-lift chair with it.  This is the approach I took and it works well for me.

I bought the "Premio" version a couple of months ago which is 1.5m long and has drawers in it.


I am impressed at how stable it is, I am 184cm tall and can lean on it, despite being on carpet and it can go higher than I need. I can't say the same for the cheap hand crank desk my colleague has at work which is wobbly and also doesn't go high enough so had to be put on blocks of wood to raise it (and he's not as tall as me).


Note that these are extremely heavy and the top & legs come in separate boxes. Mainfreight managed to lose one of the boxes, but Uno chased it up & got it located and delivered promptly for me. 


I would also very strongly recommend getting a mat to stand on or your feet will hurt very quickly.

I have one of these, and I'm very happy with it.

I have four large monitors on it, as well as tons of other stuff, and it is very stable even when used standing up (I'm 184 cm)

I have a height adjustable desk at work and 95% of the time I stand, but when I want to sit I find it easier to have the high lift chair and just leave my desk where it is rather than lower the desk.

I've ordered the one in my original link. Hope it is alright. I'll post here with updates.
