Sit to Stand Rolling Workstation
This piece was very easy to put together and is of high quality. I did not give it all 5's because when I sat at it, I unconsciously crossed my legs and that resulted in me hitting the height adjustment lever by accident. Perhaps it could have been located elsewhere such as the side perhaps. In any case, it was pricey but I do see why!

Great subsitute and option
I priced a permanent desk that raises up at $1500-$2000 and this was a great alternative to try out and give the option of standing up after a day at work.

Good product, poor quality control
The style and function exceeded my expectations, it's a perfect size for my office. I push my chair in and can position the desk to use my large desktop display while working using only my bluetooth keyboard.
I did have a problem with assembly, one of the caster screw holes was filled with hardened powder coating and may have also been drilled at a slightly off angle. It took a good 30 minutes with my tap and drill set, tapered rasp and spare screw to clean the threads and clear the path. A final quality control step to examine the threads could have avoided this but -- stuff happens!

I received the Sit-to-Stand Rolling Workstation yesterday and it was in perfect condition despite some parts having punctured through their styrofoam compartments in transit. Following the instructions, I assembled it easily within 20 minutes. Wiping the static-electrified styrofoam particles off everything probably took as long as the assembly, actually. I tightened all the nuts with the clever enclosed wrenches and there is no wobble, though if you lean on the very end of the desktop, the other end rises a little, as one might expect. The espresso top is a dark dark brown that goes well with other furniture and doesn't look too fake. The style of the metal base is not really to my taste, but I appreciate the intrinsic grace of its good design. (And at least it is brushed metal and not shiny chrome.) Both the metal base and the desktop are hefty enough to be durable and sturdy, but I can still pick the whole thing up to spare the downstairs neighbors the sound of the wheels rolling over wooden floors. The plastic wheels roll well and have brakes, a nice touch. So far the plastic lever for the lift has functioned well. It's splendid to be able to adjust the height so easily! This desk will get a lot of use as an extension of the drawing table, raised up to hold a palette near the easel, as a little buffet table in the dining room or extra countertop for kitchen work, to hold a laptop near the couch (the legs slide under), and for writing near the bedroom window. For a small apartment it's a godsend. And compared to the immobile and expensive monstrosities I came across while researching, this desk is truly outstanding. Why not 5 stars all around? If the aforementioned plastic parts were metal, I would feel more confident about the longevity of this otherwise impressive product. And it would be great if a different packing method could be devised. I realize this could be a challenge, but styrofoam is rather reprehensible both for the environment and for human health long-term. And more mundanely, when it crumbles, as it did in transit, those static-charged little bits leap and stick everywhere!

Sit/Stand Computer Workstation
This is a replacement for one of the two Herman Miller computer stands that I bought from Levenger in the past eight years. Levenger replaced that product due to a defect and I am so impressed with the quality of customer service at Levenger that I am loathe to give any product less than an excellent rating! That said, my new portgable laptop table arrived much more quickly than anticipated. I love the large work surface and the fact that it was easy to assemble. I have only given it an overall four-star rating as I wish the top tilted/angled, wish it would lower a couple more inches and find the front mechanism is a little close to my knees when working. Other than that, I am sure I will grow to love it as much as I did my old Herman Miller tables.

Versatile and inexpensive
I like switching between standing and sitting desks, but I don't have room at home for two desks. This versatile workstation allows me to have both, and to adjust the height precisely for typing, annotating papers, and watching videos. It was easy to assemble. The finished surface did have a few impressions from the packing styrofoam, suggesting that it got damp at some point during storage or shipment, and the exposed mechanism means that it's not as elegant as some adjustable desks. A single pedestal means that it wobbles slightly if you lean on it. These minor drawbacks are more than compensated by its utility. It's a good deal for the price, and it arrived much sooner than promised. I've had it for less than a week and I've already spent many hours happily working at it.

I spend hours at a time sitting at my desk and finally decided I needed a working alternative, and here it is. I absolutely love it. It looks good and works well. Handsome and well designed. And I bought it on sale, making it a very good value.

This is a great product that works sitting or standing. The tray is large enough to have multiple items on it at the same time.

Wish it Tilted
This is an outstanding product, but the work surface angle is not adjustable. That is my only gripe. Otherwise high quality and well made, with good looks to boot.

I love this item. Works great and adjustments are quiet. I sometimes work from home, and this makes for a much more comfortable day on the computer. No more sitting in one chair for hours on end. Highly recommend it. I'm thinking about taking it to work as well.
