Wish i had heard about it sooner!
I was having health issues and needed to make a change. My son told me about this desk and said I should check it out. I started by raising everything onto boxes to see if I would like standing most the day, and found I had more energy and felt better. I am a Data Entry at an Elementary School and I was going to ask my school to purchase it, but funding is always best used for the kids, so my husband agreed and I purchased one! Absolutely love it! Wish it was a little bit wider for paper work space, but that is really only thing I would change. Highly recommend it to everyone I see.:)

Excellent
This is an excellent device. Goes up and down very easily and quickly just as advertised. The Varidesk Pro is sturdy and offers plenty of workspace. I find myself standing more than 80% of the day and actually get fidgity if I sit for too long. Highly recommend this great office tool. Also, I think the Varidesk Pro is a better investment than an expensive executive chair. Order one...you will not regret it.

Sliced bread has nothing on the VARIDESK!!!
I have a bad back and my Dr. recommended that I stand and sit while at work. I finally got my HR office to buy me the VARIDESK after doing the research and showing them this was going to be the best for the money. Not only is it the best for the money it is the best thing since sliced bread!!!
If you are looking to stand at work for whatever reason but you don't want to stand all the time, the VARIDESK is the way to go. I have two 22inch computer monitors on mine and they fit with room to spare. This lift desk will change you life and the way you work!
Thank you VARIDESK!!

Exceeded my Expectations
I stood at a makeshift desk for 2.5 weeks to make sure I wanted to stand enough to warrant the investment for this product. I did a lot of internet research on various "stand-up" desk solutions which mainly came down to the Varidesk and the ErgoTron Workfit A & S. Chose the Varidesk and am so glad I did. I went with the Pro and Not the Pro Plus because I wanted the benefit of the full work surface versus having the "drop-down" keyboard section cut out. This gives me plenty of "paper-work" area in addition to keyboard and mouse placed where ever I choose. To address a few comments that others raised.

Stability. Don't know what people are complaining about. This unit is built tough. Very Stable. Does not wiggle when typing. I am 6' tall and weigh over 200 lbs. I can lean/lounge on the desk with one arm one elbow and it supports me no problems.

Ease of Use. Very easy to lift up and put down. As stated comes fully assembled. Just clean off a spot and put it on your desk. I have a 22" monitor and a laptop on the stand. IN ADDITION, I attached my ergonomic monitor arm for the 22" monitor to the desktop so that I can adjust the monitor when its in the down position. Don't know what all this weighs. I have to pull up a little bit when raising to kinda "assist" the springs but have found this to be no problems.

Cord management. Can't address. I have a cordless mouse and keyboard (buy this if you are using this) and this makes all comments about cord and mouse placement a mute subject.

I am a picky person and this product exceeded my expectations. Ask questions if you have them.

Ingenious Idea
I've had my Varidesk for about a week now and have the rest of the office in fits of jealousy! Seriously though, it's an ingenious idea. I finally convinced my employer to buy it for me after having worked off of bankers' boxes for 3 weeks. He was impressed by it's stability and heaviness, and loves that it doesn't in any way attach or affect my existing cubicle, allowing it to move with me.
Being able to sit and stand is phenomenal, as typically by Friday I'm ready for a couple hours of sitting. There was no installation, only sitting it on top of my current desk, and the packaging was great, too!

We experimented with two varieties of sit-and-stand desk add-ons for the folks in my office. A competing product failed to support a user's dual monitor setup. The Varidesk Pro had no trouble at all. The Varidesk also arrives fully assembled, which made it much easier to install.

I received my Varidesk Pro on May 23, 2014. I opened the box, pulled it out of the box and haven't sat down since. I used to go home at the end of the day with aching shoulders, a sore back and just downright grumpy. After using my Varidesk Pro, I go home at the end of the day without any aches and pains. I always thought that I might need a new chair but that was not the problem, I love being able to stand to work on my computer. This is the BEST office product that I have ever used. There are several of my co-workers who want to order one for themselves after seeing mine and me raving about how much I love it!!!!!!!!!

Revolutionized my work space and energy!
My supervisor and I each bought a Varidesk Pro for our workstations. This product is so sturdy and fits both of our body types perfectly (I'm short and she's very tall). I appreciate not having to sit at my desk for 9 hours, and I secretly hope for a bit of weight loss to go with it! The up and down feature is really easy to work with! It is so simple and is completed put together when it arrives! It's heavy but my office assistant and I quickly arranged it onto my desk. My supervisor and I chose the Pro instead of the Pro Plus because we both need a bit of writing surface, and it is easy to just push the keyboard aside to create some. We each have a two-monitor system set up, and we still have room for a wide variety of things on the desk!

After changing roles in my business, I have been spending most of my time sitting at a desk. It is no coincidence that at the same time I began to have neck and back problems. After using this for 2 weeks I have had almost no pain in my back or neck. I am standing almost all day now. This device is rock solid, doesn't move or shake and is a simple setup. I am using this particular two-monitor version with one monitor and it gives me room for all of my other desk items.

Love. <-- One Word, that simple.
I absolutely love this desk. I was using a ghetto set-up to stand up before because our company was having trouble with the funds to purchase one for those that wanted/needed it. I bit the bullet and bought my own and so glad that I did. It is an investment in my mental, physical, and emotional health. $300+ is not cheap, but it pays for itself in lower medical bills and less pain in my shoulders & neck. I live in Houston, about 4 hours south of Dallas and I was promised 3-5 business days for shipping. Less than 26 hours after I placed the order, I was standing up with my desk installed. I was using the app that they have, but it has a few bugs and wasn't what I needed. I would love to use it more once some of the bugs are worked out. Now, it feels strange to sit down and I get urges to stand up while working. You should take breaks when first using the desk and you will use a lot of muscles that you are not used to. Do not get discouraged if you don't use it full-time for a while. 15-20 minutes at a time to start with is good. Give yourself tasks to accomplish in that time then take a break (bathroom, drink, printer). Ok, enough rambling. I like the desk!

When this box arrived it was big, but once we unloaded the desk and removed the little bit of packing it was ready to go. Very sturdy and monitors seem to be steady moving up and down just sitting on the desk. Very easy to adjust no matter your strength and even though it size appeared big it fit on our desk easily. It is heavy as far as moving it around goes. Would buy another if needed.

I am truly enjoying my Varidesk. I do have to agree with prior reviews, it is a bit heavy. It would be helpful if the unit was a bit lighter, had grommets, and the keyboard pulled out from the top of the unit instead of under it. The keyboard is tray does not move when you lift the top of the unit, so I use mine for storage. Also, if it could snap into without a sound that would be nice. All in all for the price tag it is worth the investment.

I've got a staff of 40 people, many of whom have requested to work in a standing position for at least part of the day. All work at a PC 100% of the time. In the past I had devised a standing desk option by purchasing an IKEA coffee table, an attachable keyboard tray and a drafting chair...for an expense of about $220. However, this setup was not adjustable, so it required the employee to have 2 chairs in their work area to ensure they could sit and write if needed. I have since come acoss this Varidesk option and although I've purchased only 1, it's already been met with rave reviews. I will definitly be purchasing more and have requested an increase to budget. Great product....love the variable height adjustment (another thing I could not accomplish with my little kit). Great product, surprised there are more options in this price range.

I read that sitting makes the chance of a heart attack go up by 50%. So I bought the Varidesk. It is easy to use with 2 monitors on it. A wireless keyboard & mouse are better suited for these desks.

Everything I expected
I love this desk every bit as much as I expected I would. I've used a stand up desk for many years now, but this is the first one that has been large enough for me to have dual monitors. Big plus. One surprise with the new arrangement is that it forces me to come from behind my desk to talk with visitors to my office. Previously I would move from my "stand up" and sit behind my "regular" desk to talk to a visitor. Since VariDesk now sits on that desk I cannot do that. I rearranged the chairs and we sit together in front of my desk to talk. I've found it has improved communications greatly. Just an unexpected, but pleasant, "side effect". I like everything about this product.

Back Pain
This product was recommended to me by my Physical Therapist. I am 35 years old and have been dealing with chronic back pain for the last four months. I am getting my MBA online and sitting in front of my computer for hours was the final straw for my back. This product has allowed me the ability to stand or sit as I work on my classes. It is easy to adjust, and even though I have only had it about a week, it has made a noticeable difference in the amount of time I am able to spend on my assignments. My PT was right, this is a lifesaver!

This "desk" is the best. I looked all over and thought that a stand alone addition to my office (podium) of some sort was the way to go. But there were always issues...too tall...too short..not the right shade of wood. Nothing matched. But a review of Varidesk and it worked. It matches any office and it goes UP and DOWN. I dont always want to stand and i dont always want to sit. IT IS PERFECT. ALSO it comes fully assembled ....nothing to put together . All you do is unpack and BOOM you are standing. It really is the only product that does everything it is supposed to . I love it. So does my cardiologist.

Excellent product and well received by the staff memebers using the Varidesk. Only issue is that the personal Veridesk I purchased at Christmas has the black covering along the FRONT edge of the tray that goes up and down is starting to separate slightly. There has been a lot of interest by others in the workplace and would like to know if you are considering a quantity discount. Thank you.

the Varidesk Pro is a great addition to my office. adjustable levels in height make the Varidesk an easy to use and very helpful tool. I would recommend this to everyone that sits at a desk for more then a few hours everyday. Back issues are reduced dramatically and movement throughout the day is esssential to our health "The chair Kills". Only negative I found is that I dont have much use of the lower tier due to the lower cross support bar hitting my labtop docking station when in the sitting (closed) position however I still have room to store my notebook, stapler, and other small items next to the docking station so for that it works great. overall a great purchase, easy to setup and use. GREAT STUFF!!

Exceeded my expectations
Got the Varidesk Pro shipped to my office and finally set it up today. No assembly required--just put it on my office desk and go! I placed my 22" LCD monitor and my laptop dock on the Varidesk so I can use both displays in any position. I have a wireless keyboard and mouse, so when in the standing position, I use the raised surface for those, and when in the sitting position, use the lower keyboard platform. It is VERY stable even in the full standing position; hardly any vibration while I'm typing. It raises and lowers VERY easily, with a real quality feel. I am a happy customer!

I've had my standing desk for a whole week now and I'm a big fan. It took me a while to find the perfect height, though. When I had it lower (following what I thought were proper ergonomic guidelines), I started having some carpal tunnel issues. But I raised it and now my forearms are resting on the platform and my wrists are better. Although raising and lowering the desk is quite easy, I haven't figured out the optimal way to type in a seated position because I need more room to rest my forearms. So when I absolutely need to sit and type, I type on my iPad sitting at my regular desk. Is it the perfect solution? No. But am I spending all day on my butt now? No. This has been a good way to address my fidgetiness, and I get to stretch and fidget to my heart's content. One other thing: the set-up was super-easy. I literally put it on my desk, raised it, and it was good to go. No "insert rod A into flange B," or anything. One thing I haven't figured out is the Varidesk App. I tried it out one day, but when I needed to snooze it (say, because I wanted to stand for a few minutes more), for some reason instead of snoozing my "sit" break, when it prompted me again, it was for "stand" again. I'm sure it's just a bug, but I don't really need the app, so I just disable it in the morning. I use a Pomodoro app on my phone when I want to remind myself to sit or stand for a certain amount of time. All in all, big fan.

I've only had the Varidesk Pro for a few days, but so far so good. Set-up was easier than expected. Just pull it out of the box and set it on your desk. No assembly at all. Combined with The Mat, the Veridesk has really transformed my workstation. I work part of the day standing, and part sitting. I imagine as my endurance for standing in place increases, I'll spend more and more time standing. As someone with adult ADD, I find that the Veridesk actually helps me stay focused, which is an unexpected benefit, though I don't know if this will be true for everyone.

Dear Varidesk , I have been standing now for over a year. I started with some boxes and a makeshift desk. At first I was standing and sitting. Now I only stand. It took about a week to get used to standing. My feet would get sore and my legs would get tired at fist. I had to change my shoes to smaller heals and flat shoes and I purchased a stress matt to stand on. Once my boss realized that I was not going to sit and I was serious about standing she bought me the Varidesk Pro. I have had my desk for about 6 months. I love it and I will never go back to sitting as long as I can stand. It?s so easy to adjust and fits perfectly on my old desk. The surface is easy to clean and it looks great with my existing furniture. At first everyone in my office said I was crazy. Now over 10 people in my office have Varidesk's and are standing with me. Standing feels so much better. I used to get pains in my legs from sitting and had to get up and walk around the office to stretch and move. Now I just pause for a few seconds every so often to stretch right at my desk. I can work for longer periods of time on a project without needing a break. I also find that it helps with digestion and I have had less stomach discomfort since standing after lunch. Typically around 2:00pm every day I would get really sleepy and need caffeine to stay awake. I'm much more alert during that time of day now and I do not need caffeine. I would highly recommend this desk for anyone who works at a desk for over an hour a day. Sincerely , Darcy Daniels

I like the fact that is a well-built product. It is sturdy and easy to adjust. It is very comfortable in the standing position, and we all know the benefits of working standing up. However, in the sit down position, it is not as comfortable. The keyboard can not go lower than the top of the work surface. This is generally not an issue for a tall person, but when someone is 5'2", that might be a very uncomfortable position. That being said, the main purpose of this product is to get people off their behinds and work standing up, and this product serves that purpose.

My VARIDESK Pro arrived shortly after my order in amazingly secure packaging. I was initially impressed with its weight and solid construction. It came out of the box ready-to-use and, once my monitors were placed on it, I was able to raise and lower the platform with ease. I wasn't exactly sure how I would feel doing computer work while standing, but the adjustment was pleasantly easier than I thought. Now I spend most of my computer time in a standing position (I get quite enough sitting at the many meetings that my position requires), and I actually feel more productive and organized when I stand. While initially a curiosity among my colleagues, many now want one for themselves.

I received this weeks ago and am so happy at how easy it is to raise and lower the desk.

My Varidesk Pro arrived last Friday and it's changed my life...and I'm not exaggerating. My attitude and productivity have both improved dramatically! I had looked at CONSIDERABLY more costly options for stand-up desks and almost fell for their "you-get-what-you-pay-for" hype. I didn't know how something that cost less than 1/3 the price could be as satisfying...but I'm sure glad I started (and ended) with Varidesk> I was concerned that my single post dual monitor setup might be unstable when I reposition the desktop, but that has not been the case at all. It glides up and down easily, with no fear of monitors toppling. Couldn't be more pleased with this product...and I'm suggesting my husband get one for his office as well!

I've not tried the smaller VariDesk but the Pro is perfect for a two monitor system and my ShoreTel phone. The products requires zero assembly; just slip it out of the box, set it on your desk and start working. Cords don't get tangled either on the up and down transition which is easy to do.

Standing up for health
I have been using the VariDesk for a week. I found it easier to stand up most of the day than I expected, although my legs do feel more tired. I find I'm more efficient in what I'm doing. It is deeper than I needed on top. I may cut about six inches off the front. And goes back further on the bottom. I wish it had a drop down keyboard tray. I may add one. Relatively stable because the base is so heavy. It's a quick way to work standing or sit when needed.

Very happy with the Varidesk Pro. We have ordered several for our office and they are contagious! More and more employees are wanting one! Shipping is fast and a reasonable price for such a large box. The only drawback with Varidesk is that they only offer bulk discounts on orders of 100 or more. That doesn't work out so well for an office of less than 50 employees.

Short - I love it. Long - I love it very much! I'd like to request a feature - it would be a great addition if you could attach a USB cable to connect the Varidesk to a PC or Mac computer. Then the Up/Down program would automatically track standing up and sitting down states and intervals. A second, more complicated feature would be to add an automated electrical or pneumatic up/down mechanism... Well - now I'm dreaming aloud :-)) Otherwise - it's a wonderful "creature" which now makes my daily work much more pleasurable. Thank you! Regards, Gregory.

I've been using the desk for a week now, and am really enjoying it. The build quality is quite good, which was one of my primary concerns. When fully raised, the platform is still quite sturdy. Perhaps I should have paid more attention to the measurements prior to purchasing, as the height isn't quite high enough to be completely ergonomically correct. I'm 6'2" and when standing on The Mat(tm), the platform is about 3" too short for my arms to be level. Even though the picture of the VARIDESK Pro shows two monitors on it, it WILL NOT accommodate two Apple Thunderbolt Monitors (which have a wide aspect ratio). Measure twice, purchase once.

Great for a convertible standing desk. Great shipping, packaged really well. Really love working with it. 4 stars because with my 27" screen and my 24" screen almost didn't fit on the working surface, and sometimes the monitors feel really close to me while I'm working. Other than that, they do fit, and the converting is really easy. I should've looked into the working area a little bit more closely before purchasing, so if you have screens bigger than those, they probably won't fit very well. This will be perfect for my home working environment, but it's almost dangerous in my office where the screens I have are larger than what I thought.

One week in and I love this product! Sturdy construction, and just subtle enough design to blend in well on my desk return. I would caution one thing... I got the Pro because I wanted the extra work space. The taper in the back cuts down on the space available, so it is not as much room as you might think. Also, be prepared to buy a monitor stand. Your back starts to hurt after looking downward for so long while standing. For someone who likes to work standing and sitting depending on my mood, this product is perfect!

Works perfectly.
I didn't want to replace my entire desk but I wanted to get off my butt more often so this was a perfect choice for me. Took no time to set up. It just works, up and down, easy. I did have to put some about 6 inches of wood below my base because I'm 6'2 and it wasn't tall enough for me to be comfortable, but after I did that it worked fine. It's heavy, sturdy and easy to use. Exactly what I was hoping for. I do wish it was bigger/wider. I can only get my one giant monitor (27' imac) o there. I have another 25 that won't fit. Maybe if it had a slide out on the right/left. Not sure that would work. Overall, good product that gets me on my feet. Works as advertised and the cost wasn't over the top. Very satisfied.

I recommend using a cordless keyboard and mouse because you will have to move that frequently. You will also need to have your monitor cables long enough to facilitate raising and lowering the desk. This definitely helps me get off my butt and work standing up. It is quite comfortable once your get used to it.

Is there any chance that the adjustable keyboard base plate could be adapted to mount under the top of the unit? Since I work in an environment that requires 11 x 17 drawings, and paperwork be available near my keyboard, it would be nice to utilize the top of the unit to put paperwork, while having the keyboard and mouse on the keyboard tray? Thanks for the great product, and would love to know if a modification becomes available for my Varidesk Pro to accommodate the keyboard tray.

Love my Varidesks
The quality is great - very sturdy and stable at both the raised setting and the lower setting. The lift arms were a little stiff the first few times I raised the desk but not now. I highly recommend the pro desk to anyone that works at a computer. I have ordered 2 pro varidesks and pads so far. The first one I bought for my husband?s home desk since he spends 12+ hours a day on the computer. He loves it, but complains now about his legs being tired. LOL I ordered the second desk for my office cubical and love it. The next day, my co-worker ordered a set for her desk. We are now the envy of the office.

I have a recent back injury and have found that I can no longer sit at my desk for long periods of time. After researching numerous options from desks that lift to different types of stands such as the Varidesk, I found that this was the most affordable and functional option out there. I have been using it for the last week and could not be happier! I'm able to work all day alternating between standing and sitting and I'm not in pain at the end of the day. The Varidesk is very sturdy and easy to use. Worth every penny! I cannot say enough good things about it and have recommended it to several people already.

I've had my Varidesk for about a week now - I LOVE it. I suffered a spinal cord infarction almost 2 years ago and sitting for long periods really had a horrible effect on my body and my ability to move easily. With the Varidesk, there is a huge difference. I'm no longer limping around the office from long bouts of sitting. Not only that - it's just plain healthier for me. It's a great product and I would highly recommend it.

I have used home-made standing desk arrangements, and have seen/tried other stands such as the telescoping arm, etc. This is by far the best desk out there. It is sturdy and stable. It is easy to raise and lower. It has enough work space to hold your keyboard, mouse, an open folder, and even another sheet of paper if needed. Best purchase ever and my hips and back will be so thankful years down the road.

Unbelievable value and function
This is one of the best purchases we've ever made for our office. The functionality and value for the money are excellent. The unit is heavy-duty and well-made, but also very easy to lift/lower, which made it a significant improvement over any other model. The only caveat that we recommend is also investing in wireless mouse/keyboard, as cord management for the keyboard can become a challenge if it's wired through the back. It is manageable, though. Definitely a winner!

Amazing Product! Has Changed my Life
I recently had surgery in my abdomen and was having a very difficult time sitting for the entire day at work. Not to mention that it's bad in general to sit all day. I needed a quick solution that didn't require altering my whole office or buying a dedicated stand up desk. I was ready to make myself a raised type of box when a co-worker suggested googling stand-up desks. I'm so relieved I did and found Varidesk! I've been using my Varidesk Pro for two weeks now and it is amazing! So easy to set up, literally slides out of the box into place. It is so smooth going up and down. I was a bit worried my mac would wobble on the up-down, but it's completely secure. It is such a blessing to be able to stand up for a bit and then change to the sitting position when I need to work on my other station or just take a break from standing. I am also happy to report that the chronic shoulder and next pain I had from sitting all day is gone. I haven't been to see the chiropractor since I've been standing! Not only does it make me more productive and comfortable, it saves me money on Dr. bills! I am so happy this product exists and have already recommended it to friends! Thanks Varidesk!

I searched and searched for something like this, and had resorted to shopping for a spring mechanism suitable to make my own. That's when my life changed. A coworker saw my prototype stacked with boxes on my desk, and came in the next day with a magazine ad for Varidesk. I ordered one the next day. This thing is nearly a perfect solution for me. The only drawback for me is that I use three displays, and one of them is my laptop's. So, I had to rig a minor workaround. If I had three thumbs, I would give this three thumbs up. If there was some kind of referral program, I'd be raking in the rewards because everyone who sees it wants one.

I am 6'7" and find sitting for long periods uncomfortable - there are very few chairs that fit my profile properly.

Sturdiness, functionality, and ease of setup and use are all great. A couple things to know: -The monitors will likely not be the right height in both the standing and seated position. i.e., you'll have to manually adjust monitor height. I use two monitors, one adjusted for standing and one for sitting, but with only one monitor it would get annoying unless you have a monitor stand that has easy vertical adjustment. -You have to move the keyboard and mouse up to the standing position. If you have a corded keyboard and mouse, this will be a bit of a pain. At the very least, you'll want a cordless mouse. But still a very worthwhile product.

I think it will become a trend. I've even had people take pictures of it to show their spouse. All in all, one of the best purchases ever. To make it absolutely perfect, I'm looking for a clamp on keyboard tray to use in the standing position so I can have more work space. But that is not even worth taking a star away.

Great existing desk solution
I have a sufficient desk for my home office and wanted to expand to a standing environment. I originally got a small, cheap desk from ThinkGeek, which worked great, but it was only for my laptop and did not provide a complete upright desk solution. Standing desk replacements are way too expensive and other ones either are too small or flimsy (with springs) - as I wanted something I can write on as well as type. The Varidesk fits the bill exactly. I have room for my laptop, external monitor, keyboard, mouse, and stuff. I can move the keyboard off and have lots of room for writing. One feature that wasn't immediately apparent to me is that the Varidesk height is adjustable. It has an upper limit, but there are settings between all the way down to all the way up. I do move it often when I change standing strategies. And the price is right. Love my new desk situation.

Lifts and raises easily with two monitors (laptop is docked to the side). Functionally it works well. The desk is deep, and the higher it is raised, the further out from the desk it comes (I'm short, so this is a non-issue).

The unit is heavy duty (95 lbs) so sits rock solid on the desk. The spring elevation mechanism is just right to make it easy to raise, even with a big monitor, a Surface, and a Surface dock on it. I would prefer to have the upper level cut back a bit to accommodate my ergonomic keyboard; even with the adjustable keyboard level fully assembled my keyboard top row is under the upper level, but it's still accessible. By the way, the packing box is such good quality that my colleague asked to have it to move his best art pieces with: thick sheets of high quality corrugated cardboard. So this is a very well-built solution when you have an existing sit desk and want an impressive, easy way to elevate your work desk to standing position. I recommend buying a Gel-Pro Plush Anti-Fatigue mat to go with this, and good, supportive shoes.

Editor
I had been looking into the benefits of working standing up for a while now. My lower back was in pain almost every day, no matter how much attention I paid to my posture. As a film editor I can spend hours in a sitting position. I was looking for a table that would let me work on a chair or standing up depending on the situation. Most tables that do this are over $1000. And if you have as much monitors and speakers as an editor, you are talking about pretty big $6000-$10000 tables. Varidesk is the tool to do this without breaking the bank. I love my old table (an old wood dining table) and I didn't have to change it (or move all my equipment from it). I work maybe 2-3 hours standing up and sit for an hour or two. This has not only been good for my back (no pain for a week so far), but it definitely speeds up my work. I just feel a lot more energetic. I am convincing another editor in my studio and would definitely recommend this to anyone who spends more than 3 hours at the time sitting down to work. There are two reason I rated 4 and not 5 stars: My monitors don't move up (they just tilt), so to get the right hight I still needed a 4 inch platform. The Varidesk platform also moves the monitors maybe 6 inches too close to my liking on the standing position, so to fix this, I downloaded a monitor brightness widget to adjust the brightness when I'm working in a standing position.

Not only has my Varidesk been an extremely worthwhile purchase... it continues to be the talk and envy of my work department! I purchased the Pro version, which easily accomodates the two 26" monitors I have, and it still gives me enough work space in front of my monitors for writing notes, using my keyboard and mouse, and storing a couple key items like my stapler and tape dispenser. If I could improve this product at all, it would be to have it also include a slide-out keyboard tray just under the top portion. This small addition would allow for even more work space on top when standing, and it would make the adjustment from sitting to standing more consistent in terms of ergonomics. Overall; however, this has been the best purchase I have ever made in terms of my office. I can't believe, nor did I understand until this transition was made, how much more productive I am due to standing, not to mention the health benefits! Thanks, Varidesk!

Good, with a few issues.
I got the pro version to work with my dual monitors. it works very well, but I wish that it came with a pull out keyboard tray attached to the bottom of the moveable surface, instead of on the bottom level. The problem is that the distance from the keyboard to the top of my monitor differs when it's lowered (keyboard on pull out tray) vs raised (keyboard on raised surface). So I can't keep the monitor and keyboard in an ergonomically consistent position. it took a couple of hours of pretty bad neck pain to realize what the issue was. it's not a big deal - I'm just mounting a keyboard tray myself. Other than that, it works great.

Well made product
I used this product for one week and have been very satisfied with its ease of operation and quality construction. The product comes fully assembled and ready for use. I have two 24" monitors sitting side-by-side on the 36" model. The center of mass (or if you like the support pedestal) for each monitor is safely inside the edges (by several inches) of the desktop of the Varidesk. This means the monitors are in no danger of slipping off the edge during movement or use of the device. My organization's safety office has fully sanctioned this device as safe for use. One very small complaint, if you can call it that, is that there is a point during the raising or extending of the top at which there is the need to pull upward with more force than I would like. It doesn't bother my back, but I can see where there may be some people with severe back issues that this may require someone else to articulate the desk for them. If using only one monitor on the device, this likely is a non-factor as the spring compensation is probably enough to lift the top and monitor with little effort. Overall, this product has helped me control the pain in my back by allowing me to alternate between sitting and standing while I work. Since I spend almost my entire workday at the keyboard, this is very beneficial.

The VARIDESK provides a solution to the "smoking of our generation" which is the amount of time we sit down each day. If you haven't read anything about it yet, there are tons of articles and books about the dangers of sitting for prolonged hours every day. The VARIDESK provides me with both a physical solution to raise my workplace and a software reminder to stand up each day. The amount of energy you feel when you stand during a call is amazing. When you work for 8 hours and alternate positions instead of hunching over a keyboard for ours on end, you feel energized and more productive. If you have a Hoverbar for your iPad, you can attach it on there as well! The product is solid and well constructed. Be warned that you need more than a wispy modular desk to hold it up as it is heavy. However, it raises and lowers with ease and give you confidence that your "floating desktop" is safe and well care for. I have been telling all of my colleagues about it and would highly recommend it to all!

Great product
I've had the PRO a couple of weeks now and am very happy. The ability to stand but then change things up and sit for a while is great, and the desk could not be easier to adjust. Unfortunately, my monitors are not adjustable and I'd like them to be higher ideally when standing, so that may be an idea for a future add-on. I don't need the keyboard tray so can't comment on that, as my desk has one that I use when seating. The Varidesk is an excellent product, very well made and at a reasonable price.

First, I did not appreciate that tye product had obviously been opened and shipped back by another customer. It did appear that the unit was OK. The varidesk works OK for me. The height points are right on for my use at full down through full up. Where it needs improvement is that halfway brought up you have to exert a bit of strength to bring it up. There needs to be a better balance all the way through the motion. Also it would be better if it had one latch as a release. The one side does not always catch evenly as the other without deliberate action. Our staff with shorter arms struggle a bit with both latches. Other than those points the material is nice and the unit is sturdy,

I find I have more energy as the day wears on and if I do need to sit, the adjustment up and down is easy. I am able to have my laptop and large additional monitor on the work surface for a dual monitor set up as well as my phone and other small accessories. I would (and have) recommend this product to my Associates and anyone else looking into a standing workstation.

I want to love it, but..
To begin, the construction of the unit is great. I have a 27" monitor with two speakers and they just fit on the Pro. I had tried a number of other options before buying my Varidesk and many of them suffered from a problem this does not: shaking while typing. The height is also great for typing whilst standing, although it's at it's maximum height and I'm 5'11. The transition from standing to sitting position is smooth and easy. The surface works well with a laser mouse as well. The reason for the middling review is something I view as an issue inherent in the design. Prior to using the Varidesk, my keyboard, mouse, and monitor were all on the same desk surface. On the Varidesk while seated, the monitor is raised on the lowered Varidesk surface, while the keyboard and mouse are essentially at the same level as before. For me, this means that I'm looking upwards at my monitor, like sitting in the front tow of a movie theatre. I continue to use my Varidesk daily, but it is essentially a dedicated standing desk. I'm searching for a taller chair to allow me to use the desk in the sitting position in the future, but I was a bit disappointed in not recognizing this issue before purchasing.

Awesome product and happy purchase. Def worth the $350. For those who workout (like me), this is a problem solver. You train hard, but you low back never gets a break. Up at 5am pulling deadlifts and barbell rows, then sitting in a chair for eight or nine hours, you can almost hear those hams getting tighter, that pelvic tilt getting worse, and your low back pays dearly for it. Adding the varidesk changes all that. Those hams are kept long, active recovery as you stand more and sit less, and your low back feels better than it has in years. Do this thing. It's cheaper than a chiropractor, and a healthy low back means better workouts and a better life. That's my two cents. Happy customer.

I started feeling better physically (shoulders, back) the first day after using the Varidesk Pro. For the price point, you can't beat it. My one caveat is for taller people. My desk at work is on the shorter side, and and I am on the taller side (6'2"), so the Varidesk at full extension is still a tad bit short for me. I am currently placing a book under my both my keyboard and mouse to make up for my height requirements; I may try to to find some type of plank-like object to place under the Varidesk itself.

For the options I looked at, the Veridesk Pro looked to be the best value. Additionally, another product I was considering required that I wait 6 weeks to receive it. I am a financial planner and spend much of my day at my desk, and this product has made it easy for me to stand when my body tells me to, and sit when my body tells me to. The work surface is as good as it can be - I'd prefer more space to work on when standing, but if it was any larger I'd probably complain that the product was too bulky at all other times. It rises and falls relatively effortlessly, and has a clean but not fancy look suitable for any office. It feels very durable and sure beats spending $700 more for a new desk when the rest of my desk still works fine! Pleased with the purchase, no complaints.

A really good and sturdy table. Its very convenient to change the height of the table. The only thing i would love to have the keyboard tray also go up with it. But nonetheless its a great standup table.

I am using the Varidesk Pro with a screen and a laptop, with wireless keyboard and mouse. Easy to move up and down. No problem moving the keyboard. I have a anti fatigue floor mat which I think is a good idea for a concrete floor. I purchased this to avoid giving back the fitness I have gained through running by sitting for ten hours a day. I am glad I made this purchase.

Overall, I think this is a great product and am thoroughly enjoying using it. My only complaint is that the keyboard tray doesn't lift with it, so the monitor height either has to be too low when standing or too high when sitting to maintain the proper keyboard height. I'm guessing on the next version of the platform, that will be (or at least should be) addressed. However, I do think that the health benefits of not sitting all day outweigh that one negative.

Provides a great work platform and is surprisingly comfortable to work from and with. The depth is a bit too deep. Could be 6 inches less at the desk level plus in width and still provide a great product. As it is mounted now, the depth extends over the typical desk depth.

I have used my new Varidesk Pro for about a week now, and I love it! It is a highly affordable, portable option to having a stand-up desk. It affords me easy flexibility in moving from stand-up to sit down, and I love the large work surface. I highly recommend that anyone buying one of these also purchases a wireless keyboard and wireless mouse though. Otherwise you will have to mess around with moving wires up and down behind the Varidesk if your cords are relatively short. Again, for the money, this is an incredible little set-up!

I was so excited to get this and so far my pros outweigh the cons but there are a few things: 1.It is very strange to me that the keyboard tray/platform does not go up with the desk. This causes there to be little to no working space when the desk is in the stand position because the keyboard and mouse will have to be up there. 2.It's too tall when it's in the lowest position. 3.You lose some space due to the shape of it. I can only assume that the reason for it's shape is so it fits nicely in a corner. I still like it and because I work for a company that builds product with MDO and comp, I'm having them make something to go along the side for my calculator and phone.

The Varidesk Pro is an outstanding product. It does exactly what I needed a "standing desk" to do. It costs $300 (a bargain vs. its competition) and it totally eliminates "cold feet" due to a lack of movement when sitting. It is as easy as opening the box, setting it on the existing desk and it was ready to be used. I have had the desk for a little over a week now and love it. I have not made any adjustment to the desk at all. It is truly an amazing, sturdy product!!!

I am so happy with my purchase. It is so easy to adjust to standing or sitting position. It is a bit heavy so I had my husband help me lift it up on to my desk. Since I've had the Veridesk Pro, I only sit during my breaks or lunch hour. The rest of the time I walk, stand, or jog in place while I work. I am able to sleep better, my legs and back don't hurt as much and my waist is starting to slim down. I am more active during the day, but less tired and better able to focus on my work.

As many other reviewers have noted, this desk is ready to go out of the box, and changes between sitting and standing positions super easily. It is sturdy, completely unfussy, and very well-designed. It fits on my existing desk space, so I didn't need to do any rearranging to start standing right away. In the standing position, my keyboard ends up being slightly higher than I want it, so I will probably attach a slender sliding keyboard tray under the desk surface so I have two different keyboard height options when standing. If Varidesk made this desk in white, I'd have preferred that. For the money, this product does the job. I'm totally happy with it.

I LOVE my Varidesk. Had all kinds of back issues from sitting all day so had fashioned my own standing desk...problem was the height was fixed so wasn't great when I wore diffferent shoes or wanted to sit down....Varidesk is perfect. Exactly what I have needed.

Not one to normally do this but I feel compelled to share my satisfaction with this product. Everything about my experience has been great. From extremely prompt order processing and shipping to the quality of the product once it was received. I ordered my Pro on Tuesday afternoon and received it Thursday afternoon with standard ground shipping. The product is well finished and requires no assembly. I have already had 7 people stop in my office to admire and ask questions about it. I'm only into my first day with the product but I can say that so far it is fantastic. I am 6'4" and was little worried about the height being adequate but its spot on. No more back and thigh pain for me.

I am very happy with this product. Its a bit wide, so that should be taken into consideration but I bought this to improve my health so that I would have an option not to be sitting all day long every day. My first day I stood for about 5 hours with no problems. Loved that I did not have to ruin the integrity of my desk in order to secure this to the desk for use. Free standing means that if I change desks, or choose to not use this some day I won't have gaping holes in my current desk. So far love this.

Well made, very easy to setup and use. After initially seeing the unit I thought it was monsterous, but once you get the monitor, keyboard, mouse, notepads, calculator, etc. spread out, you really do need the room. I've showed several co-workers and they love it as well, however, some of the desks around the office aren't as deep as my so it's a little too large for those. It would be nice if there was a model to fit on desks that aren't as deep.

I've been using my Varidesk now for a week and I really like it. Yesterday I spent almost my entire work day standing at the desk and occasionally took a sit down break, instead of the other way around. I'm using this at my home office and I'm planning on buying a smaller version for the office. It's a great product. When the desk in it's lower position the monitor is of course higher than it was before, so I might adjust the height of my desk to adjust it. I can't do this at work and so I haven't jumped at buying the second one yet. Otherwise I'm very happy. Thank you. Varidesk.

I have had a standing desk for about two years, but the desk I had was at a fix standing height. I started to notice that when my body started to fatigue that my standing posture would suffer. This is the very reason I went to a standing desk to begin with, because of my poor posture. Ordering the desk was a breeze and a couple hours later I received an email that the desk had already shipped. Two days later I received the desk. It comes double boxed and with cardboard and foam padding to keep it from moving around. As I unboxed it I kept looking for parts, but their weren't any. It comes completely assembled and ready to use right out of the box. It is pretty heavy and says that you should use two people to move, and you should, but I was excited and was able to move it myself. It is very well built and after a week of daily use I am very pleased with the Varidesk. I like the little reminder app. I have it set on a 60 minute stand and 60 minute sit. This is working very well for me. Just about the time my legs start getting tired it pops up that it is time to sit. It is almost like a reward. I had a wired keyboard and mouse and that was kind of a pain moving it up and down. I would recommend a wireless keyboard and mouse. It is so much easier moving them when you transition. I highly recommend Varidesk for anyone that sits at a desk for extended periods of time.

I use two monitors and therefore ordered the Pro version. I was a little concerned about how heavy the moving tabletop was going to be and I would say my concerns were justified. I am a somewhat short in stature and I just do not have the same leverage that my taller colleagues have. Even with the spring-assist, I have to heave the desk up and this motion is not back friendly. Placing the Veridesk closer to the front of the supporting desk helps and I plan to mount one monitor, maybe both, on a separate monitor arm. This is not to say that I wouldn't recommend the Varidesk. Just be aware that you may have to play around with placement and entertain using a monitor arm.

Have used the desk for a week and am satisfied in general. It is easy to adjust the height and switching from standing to sitting is a snap. I especially appreciate the fact that the work surface is very firm when raised. Especially given the competitive price, I recommend the unit. A few observations and comments: (1) The desk works best with wireless keyboards and mice/trackballs since the wires connecting peripherals to your computer can get in the way when raising the surface. (2) The photo on the website is deceptively neat, since there are no unsightly wires leading from the monitors to the computer. In reality, there will be power cords and data cables dangling behind the desk. (3) Because the entire work surface is one piece, monitors with adjustable heights are best. My experience is that the best position of the monitors in the sitting position is likely to be different from the desired position of the monitors when standing. (4) When in the sitting position, the work surface is raised 5" above the overall desk surface, so one may need additional desk space beside the Varidesk for papers, etc.

The best part of this product is that it is so sturdy it does not bounce when I'm typing; a real concern that I had. It's nice that it comes out of the box ready to set up. My one suggestion is that it should be abundantly clear that the lowest level is 5" off the desktop. I did not realize that when I was checking the dimensions and the video - I expected that the desktop would lower completely. It does make a difference for your expectations when in the sitting position. Also, the double-wide version is hard on the shoulders to lift, as the two monitors on top make it heavy. Other than that, I'm enjoying the sit-stand world.

I have 3 bulging disks in my lower back and the Varidesk is providing me with relief! I love being able to vary the position I am in and still be productive. At my old company I had a desk that moved up & down and I was a little skeptical about a work station being able to meet my needs. However, the quality of the varidesk is great and it meets all my needs.

Love my Varidesk
I have a job where I sit almost all day and my back is always hurting. Found this desk in the Skymall magazine on one of my trips and got it and absolutely love it. It allows me to sit if I want and stand when I want. I couldn't figure out the slide out keyboard until today and I am 100% sold on this desk. All of my coworkers want one now that they see how versatile it is. Love the app that you can download to remind me to stand/sit and it even counts the calories burned from standing. Wish this product had been available years ago.

Sitting too much can be as bad as smoking
That's according to Tom Rath, author of "Eat Move Sleep." I love that this product has made it possible for me to work while standing. I'm tall, so I still have to put my monitor on a stand when I'm standing. It would be nice if there was another shelf on the back half of the top. Even with that limitation, I give it 5 stars.

The unit itself worked great, but it took a while to get it at the correct height. Since the unit is basically one size fits all, you need to try a few different supports levels to make sure the monitor and keyboard are at the right level. I had a headache for a week before I figured it out.

With a 55 minute commute one way and 8-12 hour days at a desk job, standing up and moving around is always desired, but hard to come by. I had looked at other standing desks and found one that looked promising, but at the $600 price tag I never could quite pull the trigger. When I saw the Varidesk I was intrigued... It accomplished the same as the other desk I had looked at, but the shelf moved quickly and in one piece whereas the other had an independent adjustment for the monitors and desktop. I then there was the fact that the Varidesk was only $300. I have used the Varidesk for two weeks now and am very very happy with the purchase! Like others, I have more energy at the end of the day. Since moving the desk up and down is so quick and easy I usually spend one hour up and one down. I highly recommend this and expect others in my office to follow suit.

I began standing at work about 4 years ago when I switched from a full time training position, where I stood and moved around most days, to a position that kept me primarily at a desk. I realized after sitting for a couple of months that my mood and energy level were much lower when I was sitting than when I was up moving around. Until recently I've been using boxes and makeshift platforms to make standing and working an option. When I ran across an ad for the Varidesk I thought it was what I'd been looking for. When it arrived and I began using it I knew it was EXACTLY what I was looking for. I pulled it out of the box, followed the BEST instruction page in the world, put it on top of my desk and BAM, I was working! It's stable, looks, great, and transitions smoothly and quickly. Frankly it works much better than other options I've seen others use that cost 2 or 3 times more. I highly recommend the Varidesk.

I've been very happy with this desk, it's been an excellent choice for standing up for work during the day. I was also very, very impressed with how quickly it was shipped out. The only drawback to the Varidesk is monitor height. It would be preferred for the monitors to sit at eye level when standing. As is, even with monitors raised to their top height, there's a slight angle looking down at them. Overall, well worth the money, very solidly built.

Set up in just pulling it out of the box and setting it on your desk. Done. No assembly. I did not have to adjust my office space to add the Varidesk. Since I switch task during the day from music, design, animation, video editing and general business I have been able to keep a lot of my equipment on or around the desk without the space looking cluttered.

I'm recommending it to my wife who has experimented with standing desks but doesn't want to stand all day! While I had expected that the height would be infinitely variable, it's fine that it's not. There are many different heights you can adjust it to. Ideally the Varidesk would be a bit wider for me, but I understand that there are different preferences here. I think the only thing I'd recommend changing (and I could add this myself if I was so inclined) is to attach a keyboard tray underneath the part of the desk that raises and lowers. The keyboard tray that presently exists simply stays attached to the base.

I have had this about a month. I was previously using a wood simple desk riser and enjoyed standing but wanted more desk surface and also adjustability. I am thusfar quite happy with the Varidesk. It is very sturdy and has a good amount of adjustability. Not completely rock solid if writing upon it but certainly close enough that I have no trouble. It was also the most reasonably priced option with this amount of surface area. Also looked at the Kangaroos, which I think would be better in terms of raising the monitor height above that of the keyboard, but to get to a similar surface area the price was another 67% higher or so. Hopefully the spring rising system will hold up for years. People in the office give compliments compared to my last system, though I'm sure they're all laughing at me nonetheless. Poor sitters...

I had a permanent stand-up work station but wanted something adjustable so that I could sit for certain tasks. The Varidesk has exceeded all of my expectations. I highly recommend this product. Extremely well built and easy to use. I recommend the use of a wireless keyboard and mouse with the Varidesk. My only challenge is fitting a 27" monitor and a 17" monitor on the Varidesk Pro. We do electronic plan review and some reviewers use two 27" monitors. I don't think the Varidesk would have enough width for two 27" monitors. I'd like to see them develop a 48" wide model.

I have spinal stenosis and needed a stand up station at work. After much research I decided to go with the VariDesk Pro. Best decision I have made in quite sometime. No assembly required. Once out of the box needed another person to help me place it on my office desk. There are eleven settings and the ease of use is outstanding. Professional design. Drawback would be the 35 lb limit weight. Very happy with this setup!

I've been very happy with my Varidesk Pro. I have a dual monitor set up (with a 21" iMac and a 21" second monitor) and I am so impressed with how stable this system is. I don't feel any apprehension about raising and lowering, especially now that I've controlled my cords and cables enough to not snag anything during changes. I also write, longhand, a lot, and I've found the system to be sturdy enough for that, even at the full upright position . Since installing, I've spent a couple hours each work day standing (and dancing, I'm sad to say) at my work station, and it has relieved pain, spurred creativity, and reinvigorated my work. All of this for a very reasonable price, considering the quality and stability of the construction.

I am impressed! A sturdy and affordable product. I found that using it with a monitor arm clamped to the back edge of the surface is key to allow easy adjustability when changing from standing position to sitting position and maintaining ergonomic posture. I have my laptop screen and the monitor arm with monitor situated comfortably on/above the surface. The keyboard tray could be a bit larger surface area for the larger keyboards that are being sold today, but it works and the keyboard does fit. None of these comments would keep me from giving the product a 5-star rating, just figured I could give some constructive feedback. I am happy that it is super sturdy and the adjustable features are well-engineered!

As an Internet lawyer, I spend more time on computers than most attorneys helping business clients. Tried a traditional standing desk but it didn't provide the flexibility of being able to sit when needed. Now using a Varidesk Pro. Absolutely love it. Stand most of the time and sit perhaps a 1/4 of the time. The Pro version provides plenty of space. I fit both an 18" laptop and a 26" second monitor on it so plenty of screen space too. Personally, I found the optional app for reminding you when to sit/stand to be distracting so I no longer use it. The Varidesk by itself really doesn't need the app.

This is an excellent product - very sturdy and stable. I have a dual monitor set up and have the keyboard sitting on the same surface as the keyboards. The unit does not bounce when I type. A product improvement/enhancement might be a separate and adjustable surface for the keyboard. The keyboard tray is too low for use when the unit is raised.

But that's ok, don't have a 2nd monitor right now. Only thing I would've liked is some kind of optional attachment to put the keyboard on so that it was below the top of the veridesk. When I have it up at the right height for my vision, the keyboard is a tad high, so I have to have the veridesk a bit lower so my arms are at the right position. Our university ergonimic specialist liked it, but also thought a lower keyboard tray attachment would be a good accessory to sell. Overall, a great buy, and others are coming to my office and wanting to get one of their own.
