By far the most populous category of sit-to-stand products, electric standing desks are powered by precision, linear motor drives and easily change in height with the press of a button. They have a distinct advantage over most manually-operated desks in speed, convenience, and performance, but tend to cost a little more than their crank-operated cousins. Nevertheless, with dozens to choose from spanning a wide range of capabilities, feature sets, and price tags, it remains the active workstation of choice for homes and offices across the country.
The Guide to DIY Standing Desk Bases
Planning to build a sit-to-stand desk or treadmill desk with your own desktop lumber? There are some great options available. We'll take you through the pluses and minuses of each model. Understandably, DIY'ers are always looking to find the lowest cost option for any components they need to buy versus make. In the case of electric height-adjustable bases spending a little more, as a rule of thumb, is going to buy you a quieter, faster, heavier-lifting, more reliable desk base, a longer warranty period, and a longer "stroke" (total distance between top end and bottom end).
iMovR Omega Everest Standing Desk Review
iMovR's innovation of the SteadyType keyboard tray finally sets the ideal ergonomics for all three modalities: sitting, standing and walking, in this rock solid, top-of-the-line electric desk.

iMovR Energize Standing Desk Review
The iMovR Freedom™ standing desk line shines by offering what, up to this point, has been missing on the market – a quality American-made option priced competitively with popular standing desks built on commodity Chinese-made bases. The Energize is a twin in nearly every way to iMovR’s SteadyType™ equipped Cascade Standing Desk, but offers a flat-surfaced 3D-laminated tabletop, and even more sizing options than the Cascade, including a compact 24” depth and two options for tabletop thickness. Toss in the wide array of customizable options iMovR is known for (over 3,400 variants on the Freedom desk line alone), and the iMovR Energize takes over the mantle from the sunsetting iMovR Uptown [...]

Toss in the litany of customizable options iMovR is known for (over 3,400 variants on the Freedom desk line alone can be ordered online), and here is a desk you can cater to your needs and count on for years of reliable, stable, and quiet operation.
iMovR Omega Olympus Adjustable Height Stand Up Desk Review

The Omega line has one key distinguishing feature that separates it from all other standing desks in the market today: each model has a built-in SteadyType keyboard tray that improves the user's typing [...]
