UpLiftDesk E7 Electric Standing Desk Converter Review

Despite excellent weight capacity and an attractive keypad for changing height, the E7 has drawbacks. It lacks flexibility in important ergonomic spots, is difficult to set up alone, and is outclassed by similarly priced (and cheaper) electric sit-stand converters.

Best Quick-Install Standing Desks

Between all our expert staff reviewers we’ve assembled literally hundreds of standing desks in our evaluation labs over the past decade, so to parrot J. K. Simmons “we know a thing or two, because we’ve seen a thing or two” when it comes to how these mechanisms go together. Out of all those desks there are only a handful that you can assemble in under 20 minutes, and fewer still that'll …

Best Standing Desks for 2021

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 choo…

While the industry standard for negative tilt is 15º, the Stowaway goes the extra mile (well, 5º) and can be adjusted to negative 20º of tilt. This seemingly minor fix can do wonders for your wrists, as a few extra degrees allow a typist to keep his or her hands in a comfortable, neutral position.

Top X-Lift Standing Desk Converters – Expert Reviews

On cheaper X-Lifts, you’ll see tiny, inexpensive air pistons that aid little in the lifting process and basically put the burden of lifting on you alone. These will likely break sooner than larger, high quality pistons, and the issue is exacerbated when you’re adding multiple monitors. That’s why it’s so important to choose a unit with strong counterbalance force if you planning to put a…

Top Electric Stand Desk Converters – Experts Review

Most of the electric stand desk converters use a Post & Base structure, which means they come with a monitor post built-in. No need to purchase a monitor arm separately, and that’s part of what accounts for their higher price--as well as the electric motors of course. (Monitor arms are used to keep your screens at an ergonomically correct position while you sit or stand.)
