Product Description

The Ergo-Stand is a solution for people suffering from back/joint pain, obesity and general ill health from spending hour after hour sitting at a desk everyday. It is a desktop work surface, allowing the user to stand while writing, computing or any other number of tasks, without sacrificing precious desk space. Many studies have come to the conclusion that splitting up the work day with intermittent breaks from sitting can make a significant difference to workers' overall health, happiness and performance. Our Ergo-Stands are designed to comfortably accommodate a 22" monitor with standard sized keyboard and mouse, with enough room underneath to store most printers/copiers as well as paper, pens and many other office supplies. They feature non-skid rubber feet to keep it stationary and secure while in use. The Ergo ?Stand are constructed in-house by our talented woodworkers from 1¼" high density fiber board and high pressure laminate that is too small to use for desks and/or tables. In other words, wood and laminate that would be thrown out, is given a second chance at life as our Ergo-Stands making them a green and affordable way to improve your office conditions.

It is well-made, sturdy, and attractive.

I found this added the proper height to my desk with no modifications and at 6 feet tall, it worked out just right.

It's worth spending a little more money.

Having looked at many of the alternatives to getting a standing desk this seemed the best choice to start with. I looked at attachments like swing-arms that clamp or bolt to your desk, but they all move when you use them, not good. A standing desk can run many hundreds of dollars just for a basic wood one that does not have an adjustable-height surface, such as those you can get from some Amish sources, and the ones that move using motors are thousands of dollars.

When this arrived I was very impressed by the packaging. The guys at Bargain Office Equipment know how to properly package something like this for shipping. The last time I ordered a piece of furniture it was damaged (see the review for a television stand in my profile), due to improper packaging by the shipper, and rough handling by the freight company. If someone at BOE is reading this, pass it on to the guys in shipping. If it is like the places I used to work, they rarely get a compliment and deserve it.

This arrived in a double box, which was then placed inside a larger box with Styrofoam in the corners to create a half inch gap or so. I used to work shipping and receiving, and still work in the shipping business, so I know a decent job when I see one. While it could be better, it was perfectly suitable for this item, and far better than most I see.

The stand itself is made of what seams to be thick, heavy chip board with a laminated surface all around. The surface is very well adhered to the body, with even seams on all edges, no gaps or unsightly flaws. It looks like something that belongs in a professional office.

It is very sturdy and I can lean on it when I want to, which is a nice change of position. No need to stand like a soldier when using it.

After 5 years of sitting 9 hours a day, this item has finally ended the abuse I was putting on my back and legs. Sturdy, well crafted, user friendly and most importantly, cost effective !!!!
I have had it for 1 month. The transition from sitting all day to standing most of the day was not an easy one. (my feet and ankles were sore for a week !)
Now I am standing for 95% of my day and after work am totally able to function on an athletic level, (run, jump, workout, play hide and seek with my 5 year old) without pulling a hammy or a quad. I can feel the blood returning to my lower extremities.
After searching on the internet for 6 months, this product is by far the best out there.

I've been using this desk for about two weeks now. As for functionality, it meets my expectations. Aesthetically, it looks nice sitting on my regular desk. But....

The quality of the workmanship is another story. The ergo-stand I received is uneven, so it wobbles. I've remedied that by putting a small pad of paper underneath the shorter leg. Considering I spent $199 on this (plus another $22 for shipping), I don't appreciate having to do this. But my real issue with this desk - and hence the primary reason I am giving it only two stars - is because the corners are very rough and extremely sharp. I noticed them when I first took it out of the box. Sadly, I now have a deep, 3-inch gash from accidentally bumping one of these sharp, jagged corners yesterday. Not quite deep enough to require sutures, but deep enough to bleed quite a bit. It's very painful and will very likely leave a noticeable scar.

My dad used to do a lot of woodwork as a hobby. He built a very nice coffee table, matching side table, and nightstand for me years ago. He had the wisdom and common sense to smooth all the corners a bit. (And all the legs are even - nothing wobbles!) I would think a company that regularly sells an item like this would have the same common sense and skill as my father, who did it just as a hobby. Apparently they don't. My most recent injury in the short time I've used this desk (due to these corners) wasn't the first, but it's the worst one and what prompted me to write this negative review. There's just no excuse for such shabby workmanship on a small wooden item that costs as much as this did. No excuse at all.

This is a nice sized, sturdy table. It's good for working at while standing, and has plenty of surface space for monitor, keyborad, coffee mug, etc... I love that it's made with re-tasked materials and isn't creating a burden on the environment.

I am a pastor in Michigan and much of my work involves studying and computer work. Before I got this product I would spend most of the day sitting down. Now I spend most of the day on my feet, and I feel a lot more energized and efficient. This stand up desk is solid and well made. There is no doubt that it is worth the money. Are you sick of being stuck in a chair all day, trying to stay awake? Buy this...you won't regret it.

The price seems high, but once you get the Ergo-Stand and start using it, you realize it was worth it. It's strange that something so simple could make such a difference, plus I don't feel tied to any particular type of standing desk. No matter what desk I get in the future, the Ergo-Stand should be just the right thing for it.

My only issue is with what appears to be a lack of communication with the customer (me). Having bought many times from Amazon, I've come to expect fast service and a quick response to my initial order. After five days of not hearing anything about my Ergo-Stand, however, I decided to email Bargain Office because I was worried it would arrive late and with an approaching trip, I did not want a large box sitting for days at my door. They responded promptly to my email, telling me that they were back-ordered and were building my stand (which is a good and surprising thing to hear) and it did, in fact, arrive on the last day of the expected delivery range. This would be a five-star review if they would just be proactive with letting me (or any customer) know within a day or two of the order (by when you expect to have heard something).

Still, it is worth the time and the cost. There was even a nice note in the box by the person who built the stand. Nothing cheap or slapped-together about this thing. A really nice product. I would recommend it to anyone.
