Yay. I have it and love it. No complaints so far.

I have been using it for 2+ years, no complaints.

Personaly I would go with IKEA just because from my experience it isn't the best quality.

I considered them and try it, but returned it. The wood panel is too thin, it bends depending on what you put on it. The electric version has no memory of the position, and at the end the only thing you want is at least two quick heights: sitting and standing. You don’t want to have to adjust them each time manually. I ended up buying feet on Amazon and put a nice wood panel (1.5inch) on top from a local wood store. Cost me the same price as the ikea, but looks and feel way nicer

Home office preference question. I am getting ready to redo the layout of my home office. One option I'm considering would have my desk facing a wall.

I would face the wall so that I would have a better background for video conferences (am on about half the day) and also my cord situation would be cleaner.

Have any of you approached your employer for reimbursement for being asked to use your phone at work? Specifically things like texting your boss while they are in court? I started a new job and am trying to set boundaries but this is one that I cannot set as it is standard practice. In our state, an employer must reimburse you if they direct you to use your personal phone for work. It seems petty, but I’m trying to (rightfully) cash in on something that I would rather not have to do.
