This desk is easy to lift up, but i find it very hard to put back down. So hard it hurts my back to do so, which defeats the purpose of buying it in the first place. (My husband finds it easy and was surprised it hurt my back - so if you don’t alreay have back issues this may not be a problem.) Other negatives are it comes out at you when you put it up, which takes up extra space and it is loud as it locks into place. I have a front mounted ergotron at work that is very easy to move up and down - I’ll be trying their version of this desk next.
