In keeping with their reputation as the most innovative standing desk manufacturer, Seattle-based iMovR spent more than two years developing the Lander Desk. Their simple aim: to eliminate the #1 hesitation people have about switching to a standing desk, the hassle of assembling a 200 lb. desk by themselves (or finding someone to help them put it together), and the fear of a highly inconvenient disruption to their work should anything go wrong during assembly (hassles of dealing with warranty repair, shipping parts back and forth, loss of the use of their desk in the interim, etc.).
iMovR Cascade Standing Desk Review
The iMovR Freedom™ standing desk line is what the market has been waiting for – a quality American-made option that is priced competitively with popular standing desks built on commodity imported bases. The Cascade is identical in every other way to iMovR’s more conventionally-topped sister product, the Energize, but builds in their patented SteadyType™ keyboard tray for the most ergonomically advanced standing desk experience on the market. 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 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 [...]
IKEA Bekant Sit-Stand Desk Review
The IKEA Bekant desk underwhelms us. With a weak 150-lb lifting capacity, a surprisingly light frame, and only one desktop size available, this desk comes in at the low end of electrically adjustable sit/stand desks. For only $100 more you can find a desk with much stronger, quieter and faster motors, and a tabletop that'll last much longer, look much nicer, and stand up better to cuts, dings and chemicals.
What exactly can you expect if you buy this desk? Short answer: a typical IKEA product strategy of cutting corners on components in order to achieve an extremely low price point. Most of us here at WorkWhileWalking are more than a little familiar with IKEA – having purchased, [...]
iMovR Elite Standing Desk Review
Not only is the Elite a top of the line desk for a one-man walkstation, it’s also our first choice for shared “hotdesk” style treadmill desks. Incredibly quiet motors ensure that frequent desk adjustments won’t bother coworkers. Some desks (lookin’ at you, Mod-E) sound a bit like a coffee grinder with pebbles in it while operating. The Elite barely even registered on our decibel meter during testing, spiking at ~46dB while lifting and 42dB during descent, right in the range of typical ambient office noise or very low whispers. Elite Waterfall Edge & Power Console An advanced digital hand controller also helps. Instead of the standard up/down controls we see on most electric desk lines, [...]
ModTable ‘Mod-E’ Powered Stand Up Desk Review
MultiTable is the long-time producer of the ModTable, a popular crank (manual) height-adjustable desk. See our earlier review of the ModTable crank adjustable height desk, which received good reviews from Amazon buyers and WorkWhileWalking testers alike for a long time. Newer models like the top-rated ThermoDesk Ellure have since entered the fray creating strong competition for the ModTable.
In 2013 the company also joined the rapidly expanding gang of electric desk manufacturers, with the introduction of the Mod-E. In doing so, MultiTable can be credited with bringing telescoping (width-adjustable) bases down to a price range where most people, not just large corporations, could [...]
