I got this workstation because I was tired of sitting down all day; being sedentary ain't really my style. I looked around online for hours looking for the perfect one. The thing I like about this product the most is that it is very solid. The materials used are very well made. On a scale of 1 to 5, 1 being the most difficult and 5 being the easiest, the assembly was a 3. It definitely wasn't as difficult to put together as I thought it would be. I'm 5'8" and the height of this workstation is perfect for me. The only con that I can think of regarding this product is that the casters don't lock into the bars correctly. If you try and roll the thing around, make sure that it is on solid ground, no door thresholds. I tried it once and as soon as the workstation went over the threshold the casters fell out. Good thing there was nothing ON it at the time. Other than that, a great product!
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 was please that this product is exactly as described. I thought it might not be truly usable when standing - but it is perfect. I have in my retail store as the Custom Label Station with computer / Monitor / Keyboard etc and the Printer. I have been able to put the shelves in different positions than what was in instructions. Easy enough that I was able to assemble within one hour including the 3 times I changed my mind on where I wanted the shelves. The casters need to be squeezed in really hard because they don't click into place easily. But then again they don't come out now!!! I had a strong guy do that for me. I like this and wouldn't hesistate to recommend!!

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 am using this with a 27" iMac and while it's better than sitting all day, it feels a little flimsy. It shakes when I type. But for $180, it's a great option to try out a standing desk. If you find you like standing during the day, you will probably move on fairly quickly to something a bit sturdier or more adjustable like the Kangaroo.
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.

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.

The description says it is already assembled, yet, in the reviews it talks about easy assembling. I want something that is already assembled. Why does it say it is already assembled if it is not?kspencer1949 on Jun 27, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
