I've used this desk heavily since late November and I have zero complaints. If you're looking for an adjustable height desk and you're not in a position to shell out a few thousand dollars, look no further. I settled on this desk after many hours of research and I'm happy I did.
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.
