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.
You know those hydraulic chairs that you pull up the handle to adjust the height? They are designed for the weight of your body to help move the seat down. Someone got the bright idea to take that central chair hydraulic component, attach a table to it, and put it in a vertical tube with welded spacers inside, and bolt that to a base with wheels on it. The problem is, the welds are not accurately welded, and in my case, one of the welds was actually broken, so the table tilted to one side, and was wobbly. The weight of a computer and older monitor will cause the hydraulic part to wedge inside the welded portion, so if you assemble it without carefully making sure the table is aligned with the base, you'll get a crooked table. The wheels are nice quality, the table surfaces themselves are nice (but scratch easily), but the rest of it is poorly designed and manufactured. All in all, this was a real disappointment. I don't recommend this workstation.
It's okay, but I wouldn't not have paid more than $$$ for it, and thanks to Overstock, I didn't. This is fine for very light use, but I wouldn't recommend it for 8-hour shifts. Aside from wobbling whenever I type, I'm 5'3" and the highest level is still slightly low for me. I'm looking for something I can slip under it to bring it up to ergo-approved height. I will say that the packing and engineering were a pleasant surprise, and the desk was very easy to assemble. Thanks, Overstock.
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.
