Sit to Stand Rolling Workstation
Commercial Editors Dream
I ordered this for my office after searching for a complimentary desk to the Herman Miller Eames Chairs we recently acquired for one of our editorial suites. The chairs are very low to the ground, so finding something that works with the height has been the biggest challenge.
The assembly was incredibly simple and the style is perfect. The space is very bright and simple, so I got the orange top, and it is definitely an eye catcher!
The only reason I am not giving 5 stars, is the desktop arrived with several small scratches to the surface.
If I can get that resolved, than not only will my rating go up, but i intend to purchase more.

Bought a second one
The ability to stand or sit has been helpful during long periods of work. We ordered a second desk because all four of our family members wanted to be able to use the desk at various times. The desk is not wobbly when put together correctly. It is easily moved from one part of the house to another. Would strongly recommend to anyone who likes a change in position or a versatile piece of furniture (we have even used for making movies with miniatures, holding cookbooks during holiday baking, etc.).

Very functional desk, very happy customer
After searching about for a standing desk, I thought I'd take a chance on this one. Very glad I did. It is very versatile, and I use it all the time. I particularly like how easy it is to move up and down, as well as to move to a different location. The "wobble" factors others mention may be a subjective matter in part; I can get mine to wobble, but it doesn't bother me in operation. (Also be sure to line things up right with the tube that connects to the base.) I also gave it an addition tighten after a week of working on it, which helped.
The best testimony to the product is that we bought a second one for my wife, who feels similarly very positive about the purchase.

Desk Does What It Claims To Do
This portable desk is simple to assemble with the included tools and easy-to-follow diagrams. I'm not handy but the item was up and running in less than a half-hour.
The work surface is generous and will accommodate a portable computer, a stand-alone keyboard, a mouse and a text or two. The table adjusts at the touch of a lever in a smooth and silky motion. As other reviewers have commented, there is some wobble, especially when the desk is at a proper height for standing use, but I did not find the less-than-rock-solid motion much of a distraction. Some reviewers object to the plastic casters but I found that the desk moved easily on my hard-surfaced floors and slightly less so on rugs, and I doubt that larger casters or casters of a different material would make much difference.
Anyone who likes to sit and stand at work, will find this item invaluable. The fact that it also moves from one workplace to another is icing on the cake. Both the concept and execution of this workstation makes it a superior product.

Sit or Stand Up Rolling Work Station
This is the second identical item I bought. I have written a review of this item on Nov. 6, 2013. I decided that I want another one, despite its flaws. As before, Levenger shipped the work station extremely quick....ordered on November 9, arrived on Nov.13. in excellent condition, I might add. Having assembled one before, the assembly went quite easy. My first review of the work station was a bit more critical, The work station is very well made, with strong metal castings and fairly heavy table. The surface of the table is quite generous and should accommodate a large variety of laptops or computers. Generally, my earlier comments remain valid for the second unit. There is still some wobble, although it appears to me that there is less wobble now (maybe I assembled it better). I have been more careful with the lifting lever, this time it did not fall apart, but I believe it is still a weak component, worthy of redesign. I also have been more careful to not extend the unit to its full height.I have upgraded my rating to 4 stars. My recommendations are to redesign the lifting lever, making it sturdier and capable of bearing more stress, and using larger rollers to make it easier to roll on carpets. Overall, it is a very useful item and do not regret having bought another one.

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.
