StandDesk Pro Adjustable Height Standing Desk

StandDesk is offered by a relatively known brand and comes with several features that set it apart from other particular standing desk options that were also produced in China. In terms of pricing, this option is certainly superior to many of the alternative and competitor desks out there at a similar price.

Many customers also seem to prefer StandDesk products over competitors, even though a commonly known issue is present with the overall stability of this product when placed on the floor. Fortunately, there does seem to be some easy workarounds to avoiding the issues where the table consistently wobble.

  • A good mid-range standing desk for people looking to buy an affordable product that can still provide them with a great experience. This electric standing desk is better than many competing options that are manufactured in China.
  • A variety of size options ensure customers can find the right desk that is appropriate for them – according to how tall they are when standing up.
  • The various color options make it easy to ensure the StandDesk purchased will appropriately integrate with the interior decor of an office or the specific room where the desk will be used.
  • The product comes with a ten-year warranty on its base components, as well as a lifetime warranty on the steel frame itself. This is quite an advantage over most of the competing standing desks on the market, especially when looking at alternatives that are also made in China.


  • The larger varieties of the desk are unstable and wobbles. To rectify this issue, customers will need to pay extra to buy an accessory that can be added to the table to make it sturdier.
  • The desktop surface of the table is not included in the product’s warranty. The warranty only includes the steel frame and the base components.
  • The transit speed is slower than a lot of the competing options on the market, which means it will take a little longer to adjust the height of the table.
  • Some customers have noted issues with the sync between the two sections that adjust the height of the desk, which can lead to an uneven top surface.
  • The desk does not seem to be as compatible with heavier objects as the manufacturer states. Thus, problems may develop when placing heavy items on the desk’s surface.

StandDesk Review

Standing Desk is developed by The Stand Desk Electronic to be an affordable option with high-quality construction that makes the product an ideal option for various purposes, ranging from architecture work toward office work where a laptop or desktop computer may be needed. The desk is considered a mid-range option and comes with various features to make the experience of the customer a more convenient one. The product does not come pre-assembled but does not include an instruction guide to help the customer set it up and get it working.

Electric Lifting System

The StandDesk uses an electrical motor to make adjusting the height convenient and easier for the customer. The desk has a minimum height of 24.5 inches, while the maximum height is an upgrade when compared to some alternative options, at 50.25 inches. This makes the table a good option for taller individuals, but still not good enough for all – it is important that a potential customer considers their height and determines how convenient a desk height of 50.25 inches would be for them before deciding if they wish to buy this product.

A dual-stage electric dual-motor is used to lift the table and to descend it, depending on the working position that the customer prefers at the time being. The motor is able to offer a transit speed of 1.3 inches per second. While this is not the slowest option on the market, it will take more time to adjust the height of the table compared to some of the other options out there.

Customers can choose between two different controller modules. The first option is a simple system that is equipped with two buttons – one button will cause the table to increase in height, while the second button will cause the table to lower. A second module is available that features a digital controller with a total of three height presets that can be programmed according to the customer’s preferences.

Desktop Surface Size

Customers can choose between a variety of sizes to ensure their requirements can be met more appropriately by the version of the StandDesk that they end up buying. The three different sizes currently available include:

  • 45” x 24”
  • 60” x 27”
  • 72” x 30”

The smaller options will be appropriate for a single laptop perhaps and not much more, while the larger option does offer more size on the surface. It should be noted, however, that the larger version of the table is known to be unstable when standing on the ground. Many customers have noted that the 72″ x 30″ option tends to wobble a lot. This makes it a less appropriate option for people keeping items that can easily fall over on the surface of the table.


This standing desk comes with a very convenient warranty that is superior to many alternative options you can find on the market today. The steel frame that is part of the construction comes with a lifetime guarantee, while the base components are under a limited warranty for the first 10 years that a customer owns the standing desk. It should be noted, however, that the desktop part of this product is not covered by any type of warranty. Thus, any issues that arise with the desktop will not be fixed at the expense of the company that manufactures the product.

The Bottom Line

Overall, the StandDesk is a good option for anyone looking to buy a standing desk without spending too much money on the product. There might be a couple of design flaws that have been noted with the StandDesk in particular, but by choosing the right option, small variety of the desk, the poor sturdiness of the product may not pose a problem to the customer. Customers can opt for a separate accessory for the table if they wish to make it sturdier, but this will add additional costs to their order.

The StandDesk comes in different sizes, and there is a variety of colors to choose from. It uses a dual-motor system and offers an appropriate transit time that is not noisy and can get the job done in a relatively short period. Compared to some of the other models made in China, this is a good product to consider by customers looking to spend less than $600.
