This standing desk is really nice for the price. The crank works pretty smoothly, the top looks nice. The color of the top is very dark compared to the picture, but it did state in the description that is is dark walnut. It is veneer, of course. I do have 1 small scratch already. I did want a standing desk and love the simple design of this one; however, I did have to add a box, 8" high, for my monitor sit up higher, in order to have the keyboard at the right height and not have to look down. It was easy to assemble but a couple of the screw holes weren't threaded right so we had to struggle to tighten. Overall, a very good desk in this price range ( It seems to be a knockoff of a $1500 desk). Also received a 15% discount from Overstock after I had it in my cart--huge bonus and free shipping!
I put this together by myself...in the room it will be staying. I suggest you put a rug down on the floor under it if you have wood floors. I did a small bit of scratching on my wood floors when it was upside down. I am female and 68 and it was not hard to put together...but I am used to putting things together. Nothing so heavy you can't lift it in separate pieces. Just follow the directions...which are quite good. Got it together rather easily. Comes in 3 boxes...which are sizable...one being the table top. And LOTS of Styrofoam. Well packed and nothing was dented or bent. I was very happy that EVERY SINGLE screw was lined up perfectly with the components. That is unusual...having had problem with many other things. The table top is DARK...like walnut...and not light as shown in the photos. I was happy with that. Metal parts are painted a matte metallic-ish silver so they are easy to just dust and not shine. This rolls very easily on large wheels. Be mindful of where you put the locking wheels...they are the first things you put on. There is wrench for those...which I found after putting them on with my own wrench. Includes an extra screw for each screw size and hex wrenches in 3 sizes for the screws. They all work very well. This is one of the BEST purchases I have made recently. VERY happy with the table. Highly recommend it. Follow directions page by page and in order. It all falls into place. Except for 4 pieces of MA. I have no idea what they are for and have asked a question to find out. I hope they will answer on this page. MAs self stick to something. It is not clear what they are or what they are for or if they are even necessary.
The frame is very sturdy and the memory pad is very easy to press up and down. It's very easy to adjust the height. I love the finish of top so much. The desk is fit with my workstation.
