Uplift desk. Love it.

~530 for their smallest electric desk (42 x 30). I thought it was overly expensive and unnecessary, but then finally bit the bullet and got one. Since then, I wonder why it took me so long to get one

Ikea Bekant desk (not sure if it‘s available in the US)

Second this. Love mine.

I have one from amazon, it's basically a bar table kinda thing but was only £40 (could expense it tho) and fits well with the rest of the furniture. Really saved my back during all those weeks

Varidesk - manual, minimal frills but great

Agree with Deloitte 1. I got mine at Fully and really like it. It's very sturdy. The cheapest one is just under $600, so not the cheapest out there. It is well made though. I have been very happy with mine.

Thank you all. Appreciate your help! Bought the uplift given the customizations. Was more than I would have liked to pay ($916) but have a 30 day refund if I don’t like it.

You're going to enjoy it! It's really well made, pretty easy to setup too (took me ~10-15 min)

I bought the VIVO Electric standing desk - $350 all in and has different height settings and can set. It’s great and way easy to put together.

This is what I have. I don’t know if my screws aren’t tight enough because it’s a little wobbly when I’m standing.

Are standing desks good for your back? Start getting tension if I stand too long

You can also adjust the height to a more ideal height when sitting

I got one from Fully.com and have been happy with it

Put the chair on the desk when standing 🤷‍♀️

I'm grounded cause my husband traveled. Under a new order, returning travelers must quarantine 10 days and they should isolate from others in the household, even wear masks at home. Husband is about to return from a work trip, & he's not on board. So to stay "clean" and able to go out myself, I plan to sleep in my home office for HIS quarantine, with my air purifier on, and mask up if we are in the same room. Ridiculously inconvenient, but I do not feel it's ethical to risk infecting others.
