I'd recommend only for my shorter friends. Unfortunately I did not measure out the height that is noted. I wanted a desk I could stand at but was more focused on ease of the lift so I could easily change positions. The hydrallic mechanism works well and easily. The assembly was not difficult. The quality is good....but it is not high enough for me to stand so what's the point? If I put it all the way up without any additions I am bent over to use:-( Checking references--measure from your elbow to the floor to how high it should raise. For me at 5' 8" it needs to be 40" high to be properly positioned. Need to send back. Oh well-keep looking.
I bought the grey cart so it would match my computer equipment. It does everything it says it will do. Love it! Would not trade it for a traditional computer desk ever again. It's modern looking. I mounted my monitor to the wall. Put the keyboard and mouse on the keyboard tray. Regular size home printer fits on bottom shelf as does regular sized CPU tower. Be sure to plan for somewhere else to hold the rest of your office equipment (staplers, adding machines, hole punch, paper, etc.) as the top of the desk fills up quickly.
This cart works well. I was sturdier than I thought it would be. Nice solid metal casters. The frame itself is pure metal and the wood is just a surface to set stuff on and isn't used for support. The only part I don't like about the cart is the keyboard trays rails. The tray slides using metal on metal which is quite rough and you need both hands to pull it out. I can see this creating metal shaving after excessive use.
