LOVE my new Safco Reversible Top Computer Desk. It's the perfect size for office. I searched long and hard to find a unit was not the standard 63" or 70" long. This model is 47.5" long and fits nicely behind my larger "L' shaped desk. Perfect size for an extra monitor/work station and even fits an oversize all-in-one printer. It was super easy to assemble--I did it entirely myself. Loved having the option of the two desktop colors and like the lower shelf for paper/book storage. Also like the rounded cut-out in back for computer/printer cords. And did I mention it's SUPER STURDY! Saved money AND time by not having to drive all over town to find such an unusual size.

I purchased this to use at my job because it was reasonably priced and easier to just buy one myself than to go through work to try to get one. My husband, who I have to disclose is a mechanical engineer, assembled this for me in about a half hour. Tools come with it to help with the assembly, and I don't believe he used any other tools, other than a box cutter to open the boxes. When it arrived, the box was very heavy, so be prepared for that, particularly if you plan to use it in an upstairs location. With all the information in the news about how bad it is to sit all day, I'm glad to finally have one of these workstations at my job.

I ordered the Safco MUV stand-up computer workstation after I had been sitting at my desk for 10 hours straight. I own a gym and had just read an article that said, "sitting down basically slows your metabolism to a screeching hault." I read reviews of desks and since I don't need a 'cadillac' per se, I ordered this very functional, basic desk which is working out just right. I also ordered a fatigue mat, and a rotating pencil tray that holds tape and paperclips and such that is attached under the top of the desk. Lastly I ordered a small three-drawer file cabinet to go along side of the desk. The whole set up takes a smaller footprint than my sitting desk. I am very happy with my set up now.

I've been interested in the idea of a walking desk. However, before spending tons of money on one of the fancy setups, I thought I might just try a standing desk to see how it goes. The package was delivered very quickly. One of the "toes" on the base of the workstation was damaged in shipping. I called Safco and dealt with a very nice person on the phone who told me they would ship the part out immediately. I went ahead and put the workstation together to start using it while I wait for that replacement. It went together pretty easily. I did have to have my husband help me with the final steps because it's easier to get the height correct while one person holds the top platform and the other person tightens the screws. If you want a work station you can adjust on the fly, this isn't it. If you want to set the height and leave it, then this is a good choice. It's very sturdy. No wobbles while typing. I have a large laptop on it. Not sure how it would be with a big computer or monitor. The storage shelves are just held in place with adhesive strips and compression from tightening the screws on the support bars. I worried about this when I was putting it together; but, seems just fine even loaded up with all my software disks.

Just as described. Very pleased. Used as computer desk in an office with multiple occupants. Definitely recommend.

Purchased this desk in hopes that a treadmill would fit under it to walk and work at the same time. It is about 25 inches wide so treadmills under 25 in wide should fit. However, the InMotion Elliptical Trainer Gym Machine works just as well and is not as bulky or big as a treadmill. Just make sure you position the shelves strategically or place the elliptical back far enough so you don't hit your knees on the shelves. An added bonus is that this combo costs much less (just over $$ for both whereas with a treadmill desk you can spend well over a thousand). The desk height cannot be adjusted, but with the elliptical machine, not using the key board shelf, it is perfect for someone about 5'2" - 5'4"ish. You can also add stands like the Z-Lift Laptop Computer Desk Stand for your laptop if you need to adjust the height taller. As a standing desk only, it is fine for shorter folks if you use the keyboard tray, but it is a bit high if you don't and would work better for a taller person. You can use it in different ways to make the height work for you. The desktop is big enough for my laptop and a small (15") monitor. The desk is fairly easy for one person to put together. The hardest part are the wheels. I did not have enough strength to push them on. I had to really whack them to get them in place. So as not to crack the plastic, I used a rubber hammer and was careful about where I hit them. It worked. The shelves are adjustable. I only used 2 of them so far, but may add the other if it doesn't get in the way of the elliptical. If you use it as a treadmill with this desk, you will want to leave off the bottom shelf. The quality of the desk is also impressive especially for the price. On the sides and edges of the cherry desk there are stripes of a tannish color mixed with the cherry. The metal sides are covered with two black plastic pieces. It is a nice looking piece of furniture that is perfect for what I wanted.

I'm very happy with this purchase. The desk is sturdy and functional. My only unfulfilled wish is for a little more possible height, since I'm 5'10". I have purchased a platform to elevate my computer a couple of inches; that will make the ergonomics perfect. Standing up to work is much better for one's health than long periods of sitting. I'm excited to reap the benefits of this switch. The desk arrived with a broken bumper (one of four flexible rubber or plastic covers for the crosspiece holding the feet/wheels). Overstock was very prompt with the replacement, though I wish I could have skipped the online conversations with two different customer-service people who apparently knew little English and could only paste in stock phrases from a list they'd been given. Once I got e-mail follow-up responses from native English speakers, everything was cool.

This product is exactly what I was looking for in a standing desk! Easy to assemble by myself in well under 30 minutes, including adjusting and leveling the height of the top desk surface. The dimensions on the website are very accurate. I have dual monitors and based on 29.5" width only had about half an inch of wiggle room to fit them both. Once I set them up...exactly half an inch to spare. The metal frame seems very solidly built and on wide feet so no noticeable wobble so far. I'm not worried about having those two monitors sitting so high off the ground thanks to the sturdiness of the unit. Aesthetically great as well! The cherry is a good shade, and the edges are well finished with an almost pin-striped look to them. A very high-quality and professional looking desk for the price. I would be happy to pay retail on this one, but Overstock drops it down to less-than-IKEA prices and this desk looks better and will out-perform anything that you could find in that particular store. The only downside is that the bottom two shelves are held on with an adhesive tape instead of screws. BIG design flaw in my mind, and the reason for 4 instead of 5 stars. Fortunately I don't actually need to put anything of value on either of those shelves, but I wouldn't trust it with a computer or heavy printer. The adhesive seems extremely strong, but will inevitably decrease in holding power with time. I also know myself, and will at some point forget and try to lift the desk by one of those shelves. Hopefully the adhesive holds so I don't shatter one of the casters, or my floor, or my foot! PROS: Nearly everything--value, professional/quality look, sturdy metal construction CONS: Adhesive shelves, keyboard tray is a bit stiff.

This desk is just what I was looking for and at a great price. The surface is excellent for writing on. The reversible top is also great.

Table was just as it appeared in the pictures. It will serve its purpose well. The edge was slightly damaged during shipping, but not enough to merit a return.

The table is great. Solid. EASY set up. Two small issues... 1. The keyboard section is not a pull out tray. It adjusts up and down and angles, but does not retract or pull out 2. The table arrived with a serious ding affecting the side and top of the desk area. it is about 1inch wide and on the edge that will be in a corner so i did not feel it important enough to return it.

My supervisor also bought the swivel bar stool to go with this workstation. She gets a lot of work done quickly and effectively. She enjoys the option of something other than sitting at the desk all day.

Pretty good desk. It is the correct height, egonomically for most people. It has enough room on the desktop to have a scanner, monitorm, and my work.

The stand is the perfect height. The peice is also compact enough to not overwhelm the office space.

Excellent product. Saved a lot of space. Not as adjustable as I would have though vertically.

After reading all the studies on the perils of sitting all day, I was in search for a stand-up desk for my office. The web sites that specialized in these desks had high-quality desks that were way out of my price range. I was glad to find this one on Overstock. It's exactly what I needed and it works fine. It's compact and fits in the corner of my office. It's not too cheap looking either and the shelves are good to have as well. I would recommend this to anyone who wants relief from sitting down all day.
