Sit to Stand Rolling Workstation
Pretty good for the price
The table wobbles a tiny bit when typing, but it's hardly noticeable and I think to be expected with the single-arm design.
WHAT I LIKE: It's comfortable to work with. Top height is good. Only took me 20 minutes to assemble, no special tools required (except those included), very easy to get it set up correctly. It's wheel-able and portable and doesn't take up a lot of space. Surface is a good size and very usable.
WHAT I DON'T LIKE. Top surface had slightly curled edges in a couple of spots. Not worth returning, but mildly annoying in the beginning. I just ignore it now. Cherry surface not as attractive as I would have expected. Slight wobble; not noticeable with normal use... but if you're hard on furniture, you like to pile a lot of items on a surface, or if you bang away while typing, it's probably not for you.
Overall, a decent value for the price. I'd recommend it with the caveats above.

I purchased one of these sit to stand workstations for my wife in the spring and we have been very pleased with the product and the ability to move from a sitting to a standing position makes a big difference for my wife. Having seen how pleased she is with the product I decided to order one for myself and have just finished assembling it. I ordered the green with a white base and it looks great. The New table has been improved compared to the version we ordered in the spring. The manufacturer has improved the handle and the new table is more stable. I am very pleased with this table and can only recommend it.

Nice top - poor wheels
Overall I like the table….but why design a nice table with good metal parts then put cheap plastic wheels on it?

Sit-to-Stand Rolling Workstation
I was apprehensive about ordering this item. A few years ago I had bought, from LEVENGER, a similar kind of laptop stand, made by Herman Miller. It required the use of a torque wrench, a tool I had never seen and did not know how to use. After assembly the stand wobbled...it eventually ended as donated to some charity.
The instruction sheet for the rolling workstation is very clear and the assembly quite easy.
On the PLUS side: LEVENGER shipped the item extremely fast, within three days from ordering. It came well packed, in excellent condition, all parts included. The components are well made, the metal parts comprising the stand are sturdy metal castings, the table surface itself is generously sized and also quite sturdy. The assembly is straight forward...one can finish it in about one hour.
On the MINUS side: Once assembled the table wobbles...for some it may be objectionable, others may live with it. I think it should be mentioned. For me it restricts the usability. The lever controlling the height adjustment is a very weak component...other buyers have noted that as well. It came apart in my hand very soon. My advice is that the user should be extremely gently with it, if possible. My unit stands on the carpet but, unlike the claim, does not roll easily. I have to handle it by the tubular stand to be able to roll it on a carpet. I would also recommend that the stand not be extended to its full height. When I did so, the unit locked itself in that position and it took me a while to be able to lower it.
To sum it up: it is a good looking, well made stand that, with some design changes, could be a great addition to any home office.

Nice product except for lever that raises table
This is quite a nice table, easy to assemble, and quite sturdy. Yes, the top wobbles just slightly, but not enough to be a problem.
My complaint is the plastic handle attached to the metal lever which raises and lowers the table. Mine came off while I was assembling the table. I can't see how it is really expected to stay on. Perhaps you're supposed to put it in a drawer somewhere and attach it when you want to change the table height. It does stay on better when the desk is raised rather than lowered, due to the angle of the lever itself. This is definitely something that should be fixed. I'm not very handy, but I'm pretty sure I could make a more useful handle myself.

Great function for a tall man; hideous faux wood
I'm 6'2" and despite my concerns, this is plenty tall for me at its highest setting. The size of the top (28x17.5 at its narrowest point) is plenty big. The top isn't too slick - it's a good work surface. Good build quality; wobbles a bit when typing but not problematically so, and this is to be expected in a unit that raises and lowers. Does include locks on the casters but I don't need to use them on office carpet.
My one complaint is that the fake woodgrain on the top (mine is "cherry") is quite ugly -- not a really cherry color and screams "fake." If I had it to do over again, I would order one of the black, white or colored tops.

Great but ...
Everything I have expected except, the wheels are too small.
Also, since the legs are too high to penetrate under every piece of furniture one may have I recommend that Mr. Leveen consider adding and adjustable arm under the work surface, enabling pulling the surface towards the user while the legs remain further back.

My friend had one of these and I really wanted one. I waited till it was on sale and took the plunge. It was very easy to assemble, sturdy and well made...my only concern was that I wished the desk itself went just a little lower than it actually does, but not a huge issue. Overall I am very pleased and would highly recommend this desk! Also was delivered quicker than anticipated.

I recently purchased this product for use in my classroom. As a teacher I find myself moving around quite a bit, getting up and down frequently. I read all of the reviews beforehand, and it seemed that a slight wobble was the only problem. Mine did indeed have a bit of a wobble, but worse, the table top was tilted. My husband, an engineer, took it apart and was able to add a few washers to level it up a bit, but I am still unable to keep a pencil from sliding off the side. I would return it, but unfortunately all the packing materials were thrown away by the janitorial staff. On the plus side, it is quite attractive, and the pneumatic lift works well.
