Standing Desk Reviews

Jarvis standing desk reviews
An electric adjustable-height standing desk is a desk typically powered by precision linear motor drives that easily changes 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 more than their crank-operated cousins. Nevertheless, they remain the active standing workstation of choice for homes and offices across the country. With dozens of adjustable standing desks spanning a wide range of capabilities, feature sets, and price tags, you can be sure to find a model that works for your unique workspace.
With the sheer number of height-adjustable standing desks available, it can be pretty daunting to find the right desk. That’s why we’ve done the leg work and compiled the specifications of every standing desk we’ve reviewed. This page provides an apples-to-apples comparison of the different products in the market today and is a great place to start your search.
