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

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.

Been working on mostly (about 70%) public sector policy and strategy at Big 4 for most of my career. Often go up against MBB on RFPs and have a decent win rate.
