Is it worth getting a sit stand desk? What really are the benefits?

Makes life interesting. Don't pretend you have anything more exciting going on. Sometimes going from 30" to 44.2" is the highlight of my day.

Get an anti-fatigue mat if you get the standing desk - not worth it without one.

One person’s perspective - no. I rarely use it as I find it very hard to be as productive. Benefit would be posture, some calories

Do it, I didn’t and now deal with lower back pains and joint swelling from sitting 12+ hours/day. I’m going to buy a stand up desk soon, wish I had done it the first time around instead.

I like having one a lot. It helps especially after lunch when the midday fatigue hits. Personal preference I suppose but it was definitely worth it in my opinion.

Yes. I have one, and I love it. Especially working from home for the past year. I use the standing mode when I have to present for a long time. I feel it's easier to project my voice and stay focused. I also use the adjustable height a lot even when I am sitting. Sometimes I like the desk low when I am leaning forward, and sometimes I like it higher when I am leaning back. I got one from Updesk, and it was about $600. Nice bamboo top, very modern look, and it has outlets built in. Honestly not much more than a regular desk would cost.

Nothing, what's up with you?

Thought I’d use it more then I do. I did initially but one benefit is even if you just use as a regular desk you can have it dialed in for the exact height to be comfortable.

Agree on standing when presenting. I stand for all meetings where I don’t have to take serious notes. I have a sitting desk but just raise my monitor on its stand if I’m presenting. If I got a sit/stand it would be because these are among the only desks on the market that actually can have a 27” height which is appropriate for me. Standard home tables and desks are 30” - okay for writing, but a disaster for computer use.

This! I got one because to have proper ergonomics I needed one that could go quite low - even with a footrest I needed that lower height (I’m quite petite). Being able to stand is just an extra perk.

I have one and use it daily. It allows me to stand for some time and be more mobile, but also sit down when I get tired. It’s helped me have better posture and feel better at the end of a long day.

Nah

Better off having a teams meeting on the go. Or get a wireless head set 😉

Yes love mine!

I love mine, adjust it several times a day. Variability is good. Also bought an anti-fatigue mat but don’t find it very useful so it’s in the closet.

What brand did everyone in here go with for a sit stand desk? I’m between Jarvis and Uplift V2. Thoughts?

A2 😳 it’s like you’re in my apartment living my life.

funny

Even if you don’t sit / stand often, being able to adjust the desk height for your exact dimensions is great ergonomically. Pair with a good monitor arm and chair and say goodbye to back and neck pain

I’m a software eng and I like to stand on my balance board and program to techno as I kind of dance around a bit. You look like an asshole but it really helps get through the days.
