Meet Jarvis, the Best Adjustable-Height Desk on the Planet.
Jarvis is a sit-stand desk, the single best tool in your arsenal against static working. With the push of a button, Jarvis quickly and stably moves between sitting and standing heights, plus everything in between. This freedom to move throughout the day is revolutionary, and Jarvis is leading the charge.
Customize your Jarvis adjustable-height desk by adding your own desk top to our robust sit-stand desk frame. If you have a desk top or table that you love, up-cycle it and use it with a desk frame that will encourage movement. Jarvis features a telescoping crossbar that can expand or contract to accommodate table tops from 44" wide. Jarvis can lift an industry-leading 350lb lifting capacity, plenty of strength to lift multiple monitors, a few gallons of coffee, and even a couple of cats. We’d recommend using a top no smaller than 44 x 27” and no larger than 82 x 36” to maintain the integrity of the desk.
The thing is, no matter what chair you’re in, the human body was meant to move; we crave it. And no, sitting probably won't actually kill you. But if you do want to stand, we can help. And if you want to sit, we can make sure you're doing it right. That’s our thing: we've got your back.
Jarvis requires assembly. On average, between 30-60 minutes. The assembly manual is your best friend; however, we're happy to talk you through any assembly woes or concerns.
Industry-leading warranty: 7 years on all frame, mechanical, and electrical components. Its that simple, 'cause that's how we like to keep it. If you have any questions, please contact us. Normal wear and tear, negligence, modification of any component, or improper assembly are not covered by the warranty. Must provide original, new proof of purchase.

A few tips:
-- As many have recommended, buy a tabletop from Ikea.
-- Purchase an anti-fatigue mat to use with the desk. Your feet will appreciate it.
-- To avoid any wobbling, do not put your keyboard on the very edge of the desk. You'll end up slightly pushing the desk away from you while typing. Instead, place the keyboard a little further in. Then the pressure created by typing will be downward and will prevent wobble.
-- The desk provides tools for managing the cords of the desk, but not for managing the cords of anything else. To minimize clutter, I recommend strapping a power strip to the underside of the desk and plugging everything into that. To manage the cords of what's plugged into the strip, you should buy some nylon zip ties and some cable mounts. You can purchase both of these items on Amazon for less than $10 and have more than you'll ever need. I have attached a picture showing how I've done this with my desk. The end result will allow you to have a single cord for the power strip dangling down from the desk.
Benefits worth emphasizing:
-- If you're using an exercise ball instead of a chair, most desks will not be the correct height and allow your arms to form a right angle. This desk goes low enough for me to use an exercise ball when I need a slight break from standing.
-- This desk gets really high. I was pleasantly surprised. I'm 6'4" and this desk gets plenty high enough for my use.
1. The physical mechanisms used are top notch. 350lb lifting capacity so the motor is very strong. The 7 year warranty on frame components means you are protected.
2. Having height preset buttons are a MUST HAVE. I go between sitting to standing multiple times a day, pressing a single button makes this a breeze. The alternative of holding down a button doesn't sound like a lot of effort but you would quickly grow annoyed with waiting on it while your finger is pressed on the button each time you to change the height, then you'd have to dial it in to your exact optimal height each time as well. Your time is valuable, get a desk which has preset buttons.
3. Ergodepot's customer service is excellent. I had questions about the desk and they always got back to me promptly with a thoughtful answer. Try emailing the various adjustable desk sellers for yourself and you'll see what I mean.
4. Price. While I found a less expensive desk with less features, buying the Jarvis desk from Amazon actually made the difference negligible as I didn't have to pay shipping and sales tax from Amazon. Do a final price comparison and don't just go by list price, you may be surprised to see the difference isn't that big at the end.
FYI I'm not the only one who loved this desk as WireCutter as of March 2015 has the Jarvis Desk rated as their best standing desk for most people as well.
I've been using this standing desk for about a month and love it, I wish I had made the switch sooner. I have not had any problems with wobble, although the highest I raise my desk to is 38", taller people may have a different experience.
If you need a tabletop, I highly recommend the Ikea Gertron. It's affordable, solid wood not fiberboard, and the perfect length for a desktop. To install a desktop, drill a couple of pilot holes with a power drill, then use a screwdriver to put in the screws . I stripped too many screws trying to use the power drill to drive them in, just do it by hand with a screwdriver. In case you need to buy extra screws because you stripped the ones that came with it like I did, the matching screws from HomeDepot are in the Machines Screw section (they didn't have an exact match in wood screws, machine screws are fine to use with wood), get the #10 x 3/4", pan head phillips screws.
For cable organization, I recommend buying the Ikea Signum wire cradle system and drilling it into the bottom of your desk. Place a power strip in this cradle so all your powered items can run off that strip, all your cables be taken off your desk and wrapped around that cradle as well, you won't have a ton of power cables running down from your desk, just 1 single cable from the power strip, it makes everything look a lot cleaner. For the neat freaks out there, I further recommend replacing the long power cable for the motor with a short power cable, I bought this http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002HVYVNC, since you'll just be plugging it into the power strip.
At it's lowest position, from the floor to the top of my table top, it measures 25 3/8". This actually might be too high if you are short and want to sit on an exercise ball with your elbows at 90 degrees, so you'll want to check on that before you buy.
Also for ergonomics, you'll want your monitor at around eye level so plan on either buying an adjustable monitor arm that raises your LCD or just stack your monitor on top of something to raise it up, you won't need to change that position of the monitor between sitting and standing.
It elevates/descends VERY smoothly and quietly (noise appears to increase a little with heavier loads).
The ONLY downside (and this is just physics) is that the desk wobbles a lot at standing heights for a 6' tall person. I have a two-monitor setup and after the stability of a normal height Galant desk, the amount of wobble was disconcerting. If I had first viewed the desk in a showroom it would have been a dealbreaker.
HOWEVER, since I will be standing only about 2 - 4 hours a day, and mouse-clicking and typing, this is somewhat acceptable. If you use moderate force on your desktop or do a lot of drawing and erasing the wobble may present an annoyance for you.
Even with the wobble I feel this is an excellent product.
UPDATE - the wobble is officially distracting... It does not feel like the desk is going to come apart, but the swaying is bothersome. It appears I need to remove my keyboard tray and work with the keyboard and mouse on top of the desk (near center of work surface) to reduce the wobble.
