Very good desk, super fast delivery. I only have it for a few weeks, I'll report back if anything but so far so good
The desk is great, it’s such good quality for such a reasonable price. It’s really comfortable to use and has plenty of space. The setup was easy, the video instructions were super helpful!
So I will start with full disclosure having ur desk in 2 halves is not ideal however it works and it is great quality materials so there is no physical issues. I would agree that this mat is great quality and is really nice to the touch. Its main purpose though in my eyes is to be big enough to cover the entire join of the desk and with the exclusion of the front facing piece it absaloutely does that. So in conclusion well worth a pick up to hide that join!
I think we are at becoming professionals at cable management these day however that last 1 of 2 power cables that you just cant tuck away sit nicely in this and all of your attention is diverted well to the style of the cover. Great quality and would buy again. I may spray mine black to match the legs is all I would say.
The cable management net is a no brainer. Great quality, easy to install, Does exactly what is it supposed to do. Would be again for future desks.
The Desk is constructed of such quality materials that the building process is a breeze. Once constructed The White top and Black legs on the model I chose contrast each other so well and look outstanding. I have experienced little to no wobble once extended to maximum height which is amazing for working from home. The motor itself is quiet enough that it can be using during web calls without disruption yet still provides satisying indication its moving. Overall I love the desk and will certainly be looking to pick up a second in my new setup space in the future.
The Desk Mat is so obviously great quality from the second you unbox it. I am so impressed that such a beneficial accessory is available to aid those that will make use of the standing function. The mat is portable enough to keep out of site and grab when needed.
I got the ez desk air in 160x75 and it's perfect. As someone who works from home but also games, it's the ideal size to hold my monitors and work laptop, without taking up too much space. Having the sit/stand function is ideal as I spend a lot of time sat still, and it's super easy to use.
Really happy with this desk!
This is really well made. It took a while to assemble but seems solid. Very happy so far.
Such a great desk, fits everything I need on it. 3 monitors should fit comfortably! Nice touches with headset and coffee holder. Very smooth electric height adjuster and just feels solid. Excellent value for money!
Took 3 hours to put together as instructions weren’t as user friendly as it could have been but the desk is superb!
This desk is amazing, i needed a stand up sit down solution as i work from home. Quality is great, functionality is great, delivery perfect and assembly took less than 1 hour (If any improvements need to be made it is the instructions and identification of the screws and fixings as they are not labeled). been working with it for 2 weeks now and i could not be happier, and i did not have to pay nearly £1k as some of the competitors charge. For the money i cannot praise this enough. Any one who pays nearly £1k for a different brand has simply been ripped off!
After about a dozen emails asking for a review I am giving in, because I found them helpful when buying. Headline is: I like the desk, it's practical and great value.
I received the desk a day later than intially expected, but the delay was well communicated and easy to track. Didn't find any major issues with the assembly. Took me a little over an hour but I was being very careful due to other reviewers complaints that instructions weren't clear. Just take your time and be methodical and it won't be an issue. Some of the screws/bolts could be more easily labelled, but all can be worked out if you aren't rushing. My electric screwdriver was a welcome addition.
The desktop comes in two halves, which have to be connected together. This is generally fine when in use, as the cover sits on top of the join. During assembly I wouldn't have said this was a major problem either so I'm not sure what the anonymous review from 31/5 was complaining about. While there are four screws holding the two sides together to allow you to line it up accurately, ultimately you end up **** the joined table top to the legs and base in about 30 places, so I don't have issues with that and don't see it as a major weakness. That said, when it comes to moving the desk, which will be an infrequent but inevitable requirement, the join does make me very nervous and I'm sure having one solid bit of wood would give me more confidence. Time will tell if that nervousness is warranted. Now it's set up and in place it's absolutely fine.
I had some concern about desk wobble, but this hasn't been an issue at all at either the standing or sitting position. You might get less wobble from a solid concrete block but it would be minimal.
It's straight forward to set memorised heights (only two can be stored - high and low) and easy to switch between them. In addition, you can set reminders every 30, 45 or 60 minutes to nudge you into mixing it up, which I find handy, cos you quickly lose track of how long you've been in one position. If you switch from sitting to standing or vice versa it starts that timer again automatically. If you ignore the reminders after about 15-20 minutes it stops reminding you. The reminder is a flashing 'Chr' on the mini display for about 20-30 seconds every few minutes, so not too intrusive (no sound) and doesn't disturb me if I'm in the middle of a call.
Raising or lowering is very smooth and won't trouble your full mug of tea, and going from my sitting height (77cm) to my standing height (112cm) takes about 20 seconds. You press the button for the first 3 seconds and then let go and it stops at your memorised position.
I didn't bother with the cable management but bought a 'Signum' from IKEA for £12, which allows you to put an extension lead on the underside of the desk and plug everything into that so only one cable moves up and down when you adjust the height. I offset this to the left so I could fit a filing cabinet on the right side, but you should be careful with this as there are no sensors on the desk, so you'll need to manage collisions with objects by sight. (My only incident so far is forgetting I'd put my chair under the desk then setting it to lower, which I quickly cancelled!)
So, I'm enjoying it immensely and cannot fault the value. It was easily £50 less than the next cheapest option I found and that's including the 5-year warranty I added on. An electrically powered desk from a major brand is easily double this, and you will probably benefit from one large desktop piece rather than two, but otherwise I don't see the benefit in going more expensive, unless you're after a certain colour/size. I paid £219, plus £10 for the warranty, minus £10 I got for signing up to the newsletter, from which I am now unsubscribed! I am 6'2" and have it 5cm off the maximum height.
I have this now for a couple of weeks, and I have to say for the price.. you can’t go wrong.
So the main points that need addressing (in my view).
1. The split desktop. Super annoying that there is a split in the middle. I understand this is mainly down to shipping.. however if you need to do this.. then swap the rubber Matt, to a desk a hard desk pad. I have ended getting on from ikea, which was £27 and works perfectly.
2. Cable management. I purchased the cable management chain. However I don’t think it very good, and I haven’t used it. I think a few hooks that could be attached to the legs of the desk would be a better solution.
3. Under desk cable management. I think there should be a tray for cable ankers, underneath the desk to attach cables. This would make the desk so much cleaner underneath.
4. There is a bar underneath which makes the legs go up and down together. They should have a cover of this to protect the bar.
Conclusion: yes well worth the money. Would I buy another… well yes I think I would. It hasn’t got the some more of the advanced features of this twice the cost. But if you want it to go up and down.. then this does it job.
