    How is desk shake?
    I think because the desk is on quite soft carpet and monitor higher up there is some shake when I'm standing.

    Lex isn't in sales tho. I am wavering between that gesture and the embody.
    Just sold the embody i used for a year, never loved it. For whatever that's worth. Enjoyed the steelcase leap I had more.

    I'm realizing I pretty much hate every single chair I've ever had. I really need to put my standing desk to more use.

    Is there a distributor of Uplift desks/frames in Canada? Their $350 USD shipping is brutal. I could cross ship using DYK Post or some other service, but it's an extra step.

    Prime cables desk showed up yesterday. Assembled today. Wife will set up the monitors and cable management shit tomorrow. Certainly all seems sturdy and well made.

    Well, I'm back WFO now, so I personally haven't used this desk more than a handful of times. But it has gone up and down smoothly, quickly and quietly when I adjusted it. Not noticing any wobble. Wife hasn't complained. Calling this a win.

    Anyone look into a second hand sit/stand desk from allsold.ca?

    This one grabbed my attention as I need space for my laptop dock and dual monitors:

    Random bump

    for those who have the Ikea Bekant / Galant desk, this is now my all time design for a headphone hanger.

    Just replaces the end cap. So smart.

    I can offer to print these if you'd like. PM.

    So I got the Prime Cables desk put together finally with the Ikea Idasen desk. I also threw on a 12 outlet surge protector just to help clean things up a bit.

    My first impression is that the box was heavy as all fuck. When I finally cut into it I realized everything was pretty heavy duty steel so its solid. Having a motor in each leg seems to work pretty great so far and they are super smooth. I especially like that it seems to accelerate and decelerate. The three button memory feature is slick so far as well. Its really easy to adjust the overall width of the desk and the frame has build in cable management that took care of about 90% of my dangling cables.

    I've got two older 24" monitors on my desk and there is definitely a little shaky as compared to my previous solid wood desk but id pin that on the fact that I have a 31" wide table on two legs and I'm a keyboard smasher.

    All in all I am pretty happy with it.
    363 day update:

    I've ran a few iterations of monitors on this desk including 2 Samsung curved monitors on articulating arms and now most recently a 50" Samsung 4k TV that I use as a monitor. With any sort of arm mounted to the desk and 2 monitors hanging off of it shake was pretty bad but with the monitors sitting on the desk (or in my current case the TV) I don't notice it at all. I primarily sit but its been nice to raise and lower depending on how much I'm slouching. I've never had any issues with any of the 3 memory settings and everything is still super smooth. I like that when you raise or lower it it kind of slows down right at the tail end so its not a sudden stop. My only complaint so far is that you can set an "alarm" to remind you to stand and somehow my kids keep button mashing and turn it on.

    I'll see how it survives a move this month but I 100% plan to buy another one for the wife's new home office. The quality has been excellent for the price, I'd highly recommend it for anyone's home office/fap station.

    I have this one from Ikea and it's great, not wobbly at all. I have a triple monitor stand with 2 monitors and a laptop, plus speakers and a bunch of other crap, it's sturdy. It also connects to Bluetooth so I can control it from my phone.
    You can buy just the legs for $520 which is what I did and made my own top for it.
