Curious to see what people are using for standing desks?
I currently have a regular desk but am looking to have the option to stand once in awhile. I am using dual monitors, nothing overly huge.
Thanks for your opinions.
I had an Ergotron Workfit S at my last company. It was very easy to move up and down, and easy to mount the monitor to. I did find that the lightweight desktop I had did flex a little under the weight of it, and the keyboard mount did bounce a little. They are also configurable for multiple monitors, and with a working surface to draw and sketch on, so maybe one of those is a little more heavy duty.

Dennis, we have a number of people here who use the Victor DC350 Victor Standing Desks, Sit-Stand Desks and Balance Boards standing desk and I was personally looking at one of the Varidesk Standing Desks - Adjustable Sit Stand Desks | VARIDESK units but opted against it.
I love the concept but to me it came down to the ergonomics. The majority of setups are based on dual monitors being centralized on the stand. I however have my primary monitor facing me directly with one monitor off to the side and the stands simply aren't setup to handle this scenario. I've used a couple variants in the shop and in the office here but simply couldn't get comfortable looking off at an angle one way or the other all day. Just my .02 ... Good luck
Thanks for the reply. I also have the same dual monitor setup you mention with the primary monitor on front and another off to the side.
I have been looking at the
Seems to have a lot of space on top and I like that everything is on the same level. Fit's in a corner as well and the rise is vertical and does not come outward when it rises up.
Haven't got it yet so we'll see if it's sturdy enough.
When I started working from home the first thing I did was buy an electric stand-up desk. It was only a little over $400 for the 60" model and I love it. It has four memory settings for programming the height. I looked at the converters that sit atop your regular desk, but decided against them because:
1. They don't have the rigid stability I wanted and any shaking would have driven me nuts (a short trip). I have two 27" monitors and a support stand for them to give me about 5" of shelf space underneath them and raise them to a better height
2. My entire desktop is at the working height, instead of just the monitors, keyboard and mouse. So my reference and writing materials, scratch pads, etc., are at a comfortable working height.
3. There is no conflict for my legs as there could be if the regular desk were below and I was standing with the converter.
The better converter units were around $300 so this price difference was easy to justify (for me, since I'm the boss).
