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 choose from spanning a wide range of capabilities, feature sets, and price tags, it remains the active workstation of choice for homes and offices across the country.
