    Default Help me find a not shitty sit/stand desk

    I currently have an Ikea whateveritscalled manual sit/stand desk. I actually like it given its price, but as soon as I went from a single 34" to three, it has become "wobbly". The monitors shake when I type. This is because the desk is centrally supported. I am thinking need something with posts at all four corners.

    Looking around is yielding mixed results. I don't mind spending to get the right desk.

    Recommendations?

    Another manual sit/stand.. but I ordered this and have been happy with it. My fiance ordered a fancy electric powered sit/stand from primecables and had a table top made.

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    Do you have the desk, more or less at the same height all the time? I went with a wall mounted desk and it worked out well.

    DIY.

    Manual Desk Frame
    $10 Ikea table top lol/ (Substitute for whatever work surface you like)

    Ongoing thread at RFD with all the different permutations and combinations of frames/tabletops/

    Personally, I got this frame along with this table top for $460. I went with the dual motor because I wanted to mount my tower under it (used this, could get cheaper ones if your case isn't as wide as mine) and had wanted the larger desktop, could get away with a single motor if you get the 40x20" desk.

    Interesting...did you get the two or three stage model. Their marketing info is a bit confusing because they say the height range is 26.5" x 43.5" That's not ADA or BIFMA complaint. Then go on to say they can get down to 23". (That is) With some of these manufacturers you have to make sure are actually getting what they are selling. Lot's of bait and switch with height adjustable tables. I see that happen in tender competitions all the time.
