StandUpDeskStore Electric Standing Desk

We’ve already reviewed several ergonomic workstations and accessory products from StandUpDeskStore and have more in the queue. Curious about the company’s history we did a little bit of sleuthing to learn that StandUpDeskStore is really just a side hustle for Luxor; a way of selling their products D2C (direct-to-consumer) while continuing to sell its dealers and institutional customers under the Luxor name.

To be certain these are the exact same products that are made in China and sold in the USA by Luxor. These days those products include standing desks and standing desk converters, in addition to their more traditional product lines of dry erase boards, mobile charging carts, AV carts, utility carts and other products primarily aimed at schools. Luxor’s brand is known for being as inexpensive as possible, not for any sort of innovation or high-quality standard; in other words, it is a commodity producer. Luxor also supplies some name-brand retailers with their standing desks under a white label program.

Luxor itself is in turn owned by EBSCO Industries, a family business that was founded in Birmingham, Alabama in 1944 and has grown into a large conglomerate of companies across many industries, with over 70 acquisitions under its belt. These companies are grouped under different divisions that are in diverse fields such as Information Services, Healthcare Technology, Software-as-a-Service, Mobile Hydraulic Solutions, Electrical Products Distribution, Outdoor Products, Risk Management, Custom Merchandising Solutions and lastly “Workspace Solutions,” which is where Luxor and its StandUpDeskStore side brand live.

As you can see from the list of products on StandUpDeskStore’s Amazon Store, most of their standing desk offerings are in fact old school crank handle manually-adjustable desks (no pun intended). While there are very few manufacturers and resellers left of manual crank standing desks they still find a market among the most price-sensitive customers, including many schools. But just to confuse things a little bit more you can also find identical products sold on Amazon under the Luxor brand.

Electric desks are made in the millions per year now and are so close in price that we don’t know why anyone would still want to buy a far less reliable standing desk that’s harder to assemble, but this appears to remain a core product for Luxor. Perhaps in some school situations, it is impractical to plug the desks into AC power.

StandUpDeskStore Electric Standing Desks

1. StandUpDeskStore Dual Motor Standing Desk

Experts’ Rating: 2.5-Stars

The StandUpDeskStore Dual Frame Standing Desk solid wood desktops suffer from low quality and difficult assembly. The laminate versions don’t have those same issues but are unremarkable and aren’t worth picking over top competitors due to a lack of strong warranty, lack of Bluetooth connectivity and limited options.

Price: $729
