Howdy everyone. I am here to flex my ergonomics again. TL;DR This desk is great if you have a dedicated standing desk area. First off, this a heavy desk. It is not light and when you start piling things onto it like monitors and monitor stands it gets even heavier. The problem is not the weight, I think most people could handle it. What I don't like about it is how you are forced to move the desk. The desk has two levers, one on each side, that you have to first squeeze then yank upwards to lift the desk. My boss actually threw her back out lifting this desk because of how UNERGONOMIC it is. You are basically doing a T-pose in order to lift and there is no easy way to lift but with your back. And guess what, you are not supposed to lift with your back. I have this workstation but I have it upright as a dedicated stand station, I do not move it because it can actually cause you to get acid reflux as well. Try lifting something heavy with your arms all the way spread apart, it does not work and it is not fun (don't try this, please. It sucks!) So, if you are looking at buying something like a sit stand desk, get something electronic, that moves up and down with a button press. It is much more ergonomic, it is safer for your body, and it is much more reliable than yanking up. Plus, you are much less likely to throw your back out. https://www.autonomous.ai/ These are a bit more expensive but gets the job done. Stay safe, ya'll, and don't go hurting yourselves.
the frame is pretty substantial but the desktop is a plastic-clad MDF product. One of the screws anchoring the desktop to the frame had stripped out the MDF (which is an inferior but very common and cheap material), making it slightly loose and lopsided. Real wood or even plywood would have been a better choice for a device that, by its design and function puts stress on screws anchored into a material like MDF. It would have cost more, sure, but quality will always be sacrificed to pad the manufacturer‘s margin.
Does the keyboard slide out when it's contracted (in the sit position)?

No it does not.

Alright, thanks!
Anyone know of any good sit/stand desks in the UK that can support a high end (heavier than normal PC) liquid cooled PC as well as 2 or 3 widescreen monitors or an ultrawide monitor this one is bad (has a cutout then the lowered keyboard tray thing from the early to mid 2000’s (solid single piece top would be nice). Another thing is that this drop is apparently not worth it as it is alot cheaper on Amazon.
$149.99 on Amazon lol.
No love to Canadians for shipping?
cyotee
haha and its cheaper! normally when its a shitty deal its still cheaper on massdrop by like 10 bucks
Mine should up damaged what do I do from here? It's fine but it's not ya know? It had a hole in the box and figured it probably be fine but it's totally scratched as you can see

Do not deliver in DE :(. Why not?
I really like mine, and after getting it the company I work for bought everyone on my team, that wanted one, one and reimbursed me!
I just picked this up on Amazon for $ 192. A coworker has this exact desk and it is reasonably good and very nice for the price. After $25 shipping on Massdrop, I paid $7 more to have it delivered with 2 day shipping from amazon instead of waiting a month and a half.

I see comments just like this for almost everything on massdrop (normally I look at electronics) I honestly don't see the point or the value of MD anymore

Well, the way I look at it is Massdrop doesn't really have great deals. They really excel in providing unique items for purchase. So pretty much all of what I've ordered has been mechanical keyboard related that you can't actually get anywhere else. To me, that's the point of continuing to use this site.
Sort of like kickstarter, but with actual companies and not mediocre startups.
Would love to have this ship to Brunei. Seems like a very good stuff
Not seeing a shipping price or availability to Australia (on this or any other drops)
if i like to ship to Singapore - possible?
Not a real drop. Disappointing. Might as well get from Amazon.
I'm with enolam, this is still technically cheaper on Amazon if you consider shipping and it arrives two weeks sooner.
Can we get a sit/stand that can support more than 30 pounds?
Twyx
You already got it: It holds 37.5 lbs.
I can comment on sit/stand desks being nice as I'm using one now; but, I would question the assertion of it being suitable for all heights. I'm 6'4" and my desk shows 28.7" at the most comfortable height with my computer chair and 48.5" at my standing height. In other words, if you're over 6 feet tall, I would question that 16 inch max height as I use an almost 20 inch increase myself. I will say that this is a surprisingly cheap sit/stand option.

Hey! I'm 6'11 and have been wanting a sit/stand desk or something along those lines, but I can't find anything thats not custom built or obnoxiouslly expensive. Have you any ideas?

I am only 6ft. I have my desk at 33 inches high. This gives me the room I want underneath and allows me to have my chair at its highest setting and lets me lean back to alleviate those pressure spots that can destroy your soul when you sit for hours. I can stand and type and game on my desk at this height. Monitor needed to be on a 6" box. All in all it works for me.
My point is, you can probably figure out a way to make standing work for you, just try cardboard boxes and elevating your desk temporarily to see what you would need to do it right. Or just invest in the sit stand add on desks. You might have to spend more though because of your height. IDK.
HOW MUCH DOES IT HOLD???
greatest_man_alive_2005
Looks like 37.5 lbs. It is only meant to hold monitors and a keyboard after all. For reference: A 27" IPS panels typically weighs well under 15 lbs. and with the surface area available I doubt you'd fit two 27" panels without having one in a portrait (vertical) orientation.

Thank you and I'm sure other people thanks you, it would have been nice for them to list it..
It appears that the photo on this website is showing the 36"x22" surface, adjustable height up to 16", KB and mouse area is 24.5" wide, which according to Amazon is the DESK-V000B model, $179.99. This is what you're getting on Massdrop.
The other model V000A on Amazon is $200.99 with 35"x24" surface, adjustable height up to 19", KB and mouse area is 27" wide.
What's the model number, please?
This appears to be on Amazon listed for $179.99 with free shipping. It's only $5 more here at this point but it is still something. And it'll be here Monday. I'm also not seeing this listed anywhere with MSRP for $299.99. Do your research folks.
Vivo products look like they get pretty good reviews consistently on Amazon. This desk topper only has 2 reviews on there but they seem good, along with the desk frame, which I think is kinda a cool alternative since you can pick how you want it to be topped instead of being stuck with whatever the MFG supplies. Maybe Massdrop can bring one of those next!
Great idea, but I think the mouse usage would be impaired and furstrate you. You can't use the mouse on that keyboard shelf because the space is so little. When sat down you "could" use the mouse on the table top, except the feet of this unit will be obstructing you.
Looks like a great product for the price. Much more reasonable than some others I've seen. Hope to hear positive feedback when people get them.
I myself have my desk at 32" high and a chair that reaches the top in a semi-reclined postion to minimize pressure on my rear. Plus I can stand and type easily.
The point is. Anything to reduce the pressure on your lower back is a positive thing, stand up people.
Is there shipping to Canada?
can anyone comment on how this compares to the Varidesk? I love Varidesks because they're heavy and don't wobble -- at all. it'd be my biggest concern for this considering how (relatively) cheap it is.
ag3nt
It does not wobble. Very well made.
