Reliable heavy-duty desk that is unfortunately paired with a slow and noisy electric motor.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro A wide height adjustment range
The full height range is 23 - 48.75”. It can be comfortably used both as a standing desk and a regular sitting desk.
Pro Sizable weight capacity
The desk supports up to 275 lbs of weight, more than the average standing desk. It's perfectly sufficient to hold a massive working setup that includes several monitors.
Pro Effective cord management
In addition to the standard two or three (depending on the size of your desk top) cable wholes that help manage cords, there is a brace under the frame that lets you securely fix your wires.
Pro Programmable height feature available as a separate purchase
For extra $200 you can get a more advanced controller with a LED screen that allows you to pre-set 4 preferred height configurations.
Con Slow height adjustment
The transit speed of the motor isn't at all impressive: 1.1 inch per second compared to the average of 1.5 inch per second. It will take the desk more than 20 seconds to go from the lowest setting to the highest.
The electric motor that ensures height adjustment of the desk is unprecedentedly loud: 69 dB - almost as loud as a vacuum cleaner.
Con Inadequate warranty deal
Geekdesk offers 5 year warranty on the steel frame, 2 years on moving parts, and no warranty at all on the desktop. Considering that other producers offer lifetime warranty on the steel frame and up to 5 year warranty on the desk top this doesn't seem like a particularly good deal.
