This standing desk from mopio uses a rubberwood desktop. This doesn’t really meet the expectation of a solid wood standing desk buyer, as rubberwood is about as cheap a wood as you can find in China to make furniture from, basically being scrap wood from trees that no longer produce latex (be sure to read our detailed article on rubberwood desktops). Overall this is a very cheap standing desk posing as a high-end solid wood desk. The one year warranty should be another red flag for consumers. If you do buy this desk be sure not to overload it, as it is extremely underpowered and likely not to last much longer than its warranty.

|Positives||Extremely inexpensive for a "solid wood" standing desk.|
|Negatives||Rubberwood isn't what most people think of as a genuine solid wood. One of the cheapest woods used in China for making furniture, it has some downsides, like a tendency to warp, crack and stain easily. Not the most environmentally friendly, and should be avoided if you're sensitive to formaldehyde or latex. The lifting base is also of very poor quality. Only lifting 154 lbs with a transit speed of only 1 inch per second, this single-motor, single-stage lifting base is one of the weakest and slowest we've ever seen.|
