    We sell them at RGO but they aren't there cheapest. If you can hold off a month, we are having a sale of showroom/used product. There should be a few in that sale of different sizes.

    If you go the cheaper route, no matter the brand name, find out how supplies the actuators for the desk. They should be made by Linak. Also make sure for anything over 48" wide that the top is at least 1.25" thick otherwise you will get warping over time.

    These are highly rated paired with an Ikea top

    We've had this for a couple years in our home office. Works well, zero complaints.

    Can save some money if you get the hand crank version:

    Same one for me and love it. Also ikea’s commercial desks come with a 10 year warranty even when used in a commercial environment so they’re pretty sturdy

    Hand crank, so you get your arm workout when you swap positions. That's a #lifehack. Just make sure to use your left hand once in a while, you know, for symmetry.

    Only when there's a pair of em. Alternating sides is a good tip for all "hand crank" activities, ya know?

    If you're not married to a power desk, I have one of these in my office and one of these at home and they are really good:

    https://www.primecables.ca/p-357448-...8885#sku363437

    They are made very well and feel like they should cost more.

    It's better than the ones I have seen at memory express for about half the sale price.

    Agree to disagree. I like the Ikea looks way better. The mesh for wire management is great as well on the Ikea one.

    Ah, the SouthPaw. Or, as others call it, the Diet Coke version of... The Stranger.
    aka L'Etranger to fully call out the Camus reference.

    Camus reference, nice. Too bad I must spread some Reputation around before giving it to you again.
