Best standing desk?

Uplift is great!


I did quite a bit of research on this in 2020 and went with the Steelcase Migration SE. The price point is higher but the motors are modern and it's very stable when raised in standing position. You can also customize it. I highly recommend going with a good brand name because they'll back-up their products with a long warranty period. Steelcase has a 12-year warranty on their desks and chairs.



When I was down in the rabbit hole I was researching the type of motors each of the popular brands use and that was a major deciding factor for me along with stability. There are great websites out there that give really in-depth reviews.


Following too.. my ex had a standing desk that had a glassy white boarding surface, with a phone charging station as well. Forgot to ask her where she got it from, but if anyway has seen something similar please lmk!

Thanks! That desk is honestly great

Vari is the best out there

Uplift. Expensive but so many options

I didn't. I was recommended uplift and was given a discount so jumped on it. But in sure there are other great options that are cheaper!

Uplift DOES say they have a 20 year warranty though. Haven't needed to use it yet but might potentially be worth the investment if they're lenient with fixes/replacements

Go to Samsclub, they have one for 299$ which works great with two large monitors

KVM switch capable of switching keyboard and mouse (and webcam and headset) between all 🤤

The other day we had a 2-3 hour call with a client, and I was the lucky person on our team that got to "drive". About 3/4 of the way through the call, I had to go to the bathroom pretty badly, and saw an opportunity to slip away really quickly to go pee. As I was peeing, I heard one of my seniors ask me to switch to a different file, but I still had a solid 20 seconds or so left to pee. Had to pinch off and run to my laptop. It was not a pleasant experience
