Sit to Stand Rolling Workstation
Work-from-Home Must Have
I made the New Year's resolution to sit less, and this workstation is part of my strategy. It enables me to easily work anywhere in my house, and that's the main reason I selected this item as opposed to a stationary standing desk.
What surprised me most when I put it together was the size of the work surface. Not only does it hold my Macbook (which is perched on my Nantucket Laptop stand for added height and tilt), it also holds my iPad and phone with enough room left over for taking hand-written notes in my journal.
This workstation is perfect for me, but may be a little on the short side for taller people (I'm 5' tall and am comfortable when the workstation is fully extended, so please read the reviews of those who are less vertically challenged). I also think the wheels could be a bit bigger to make the rolling experience smoother over carpeting, but I have hardwood and tile floors, so not an issue for me.
Overall, I'm very happy with this investment.

Good standing work table
After searching for a standing table high enough to be useful, I landed on Levengers table. It rises to the advertized 42'' which for me, at 5'11" provides adequate height for using my laptop. The table comes in pieces, but puts together quickly with no additional tools. Some have noted a stability issue. I found the central nut at the base of the table needs to be torqued until the wobble goes away. It doesn't have the stability of a three or four legged table, but it's more than stable enough for typing on a laptop with a cup of coffee nearby. The lifting mechanism is smooth and the table has a nice contemporary look to it. For those of us who need a higher work surface, this table fits the bill.

Conference Rooms for Presenters
We have a large conference room center where presenters comes in with their laptop to present materials. Being able to use your adjustable work station is wonderful! It's large enough to hold a laptop and materials. Adjustable to a person's height. We also use in our offices, the work station can slide right under a desk and become a keyboard tray, pull out, adjust to stand. I can't begin to tell you how many we have sold just from people seeing them in action.

Great Idea, Could be sturdier
This table works alright for my needs, but I do understand the concern about a bit of wobbly-ness. At this price point, I would expect an rock-solid table top. On a positive note, being able to raise the table is helpful for presentations.

Just what I was looking for
I needed this because of back issues: It helps if I can alternate between sitting and standing. This fills the bill.
It was easy to assemble, it's sturdy enough (less wobble than you might expect from this geometry, and steady enough for typing), and there is enough room at the top for a mouse, a drink, and some work papers.
I'm very pleased with this.

I WAS REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO THE ABILITY TO SIT OR STAND. THE WORKSTATION'S COMPONENTS ARE MADE WELL - BUT AS A PREVIOUS VIEWER NOTED IT IS "WOBBLY". I WAS PLANNING ON USING IT PRIMARILY FOR PHOTOSHOP WORK AND FOR THAT MUST BE COMPLETELY STEADY. LEVENGER HAS GOOD INNOVATIVE PRODUCTS AND I'M HOPING THEY MIGHT REVIEW THIS PRODUCT - IT DEFINATELY NEEDS TO BE REENGINEERED - WOULD BE GREAT IF STEADY.

Some small flaws
A little wobbly, but not a major hassel. My real problem is with the lever used to raise and lower the desktop. It constantly falls off and hampers the ease of use. Would love some suggestion on how to secure this lever. Other than that, it's been a good buy and I am enjoying using it. I expect that I'll get greater use in the future. I love being able to stand up as needed and continuing my work..

Ah-Mazing Sit To Stand Desk
I've got an Orange Crush! I sit long hours and need to get up, but this thing is also great to stack papers on beside my desk to sort through. If you do public speaking, this makes an awesome podium. Nice modern vibe and love the colour pop! Adjusts with ease, rolls around, we like to dance around the office, just us two (shhhhh). You will love it!

Very helpful item
I love this desk, and use it daily, moving it from one room to another.
Yes, the issue continues to be the rocking motion to the sides. However, this does not hinder my work; just annoying.

Nice desk, lacking an essential in execution
The pros first: Easy to assemble, shipped quickly, seems sturdy, goes between standing and sitting positions easily, vibrant color, rolls on the wheels well, good height at both sitting and standing positions (I am 5'5").
The cons: my mouse doesn't work on the surface of the desk. I need a mouse pad. Seems kinda silly that the surface texture or paint would not accommodate a mouse.
