Complete guide to Stand Up Desk Store desks

Stand Up Desk Store has a wide range of standing desks and sit-stand desks, and it's easy to get overwhelmed with all the choices and options. This buying guide helps you understand the different desk-types and their typical use-cases, pros and cons. Read on to find out more about the desks.

What are the most important properties of a standing desk?

Standing desks have a few unique properties which define what they are good for:

  • The mechanism for setting the height: usually a choice of crank, electric motor, pneumatics or stud.
  • The casters: you'll want lockable, heavy-duty casters on your desk so you can both move it around or lock it in place as needed.
  • The surface width - this is the "size" of the desk.
  • The tiers of the desk - these desks come as single tier or two tier designs. The two-tier has an elevated surface tier on the back side for your monitor and a lower tier on the front for your keyboard. Two tier desks' are not suitable for laptops or everyday use.
  • Some desks have support bars between the legs. You could hurt your knees by hitting these bars when sitting.
  • Sometimes there's a height difference between the different color variants of the same type.
  • If possible go for the desks which are BIFMA certified or at least are made with the BIFMA standards in mind. This ensures that the desk is ergonomic.
  • The max load of the desk: this limits the equipment you can put on it. Crank-based and electronic desks usually have a high limit, pneumatic solutions have a low limit.

How is the standing desks's height set?

  • With a stud - you need to raise the desk by hand and place a stud in a hole in the legs. Only practical if you do not want to change the height often, you'll be just standing.
  • With a crank - you can raise or lower the desk with a crank. This can get boring after a while but works reliably.
  • With pneumatics - a pneumatic cylinder helps you raise or lower the desk. These tend to be weak and you'll have to do most of the raising and lowering using your muscles. The desk could crash if overloaded and you press the button accidentally.
  • With a electronics - you can raise or lower the desk with the push of the button. This is very convenient but a bit more prone to problems than using a crank.

Crank adjustable standing desks

These desks have high longevity, the downside is that you'll have to keep cranking for 1..2 minutes to raise or lower the desk.

48" and 60" crank-adjustable standing desks in various colors and heights

This family of standing desks feature a 48" or 60" wide surface, big enough to host your laptop, external monitor and keyboard, your notes, and still have some spare space for your mug.

The casters are sturdy (this is true for every Stand Up Desk Store desk), two of the four casters are lockable so the desk won't roll away by itself.

The lowest height varies between 29" and 29.5" depending on the variant, the desks can go as high as 45.25" or 42.75". If you want to go lower removing the casters will buy you between 2" and 3".

You can set the height using a dependable crank - cranking up and down between the lowest and highes position takes between 1 to 2 minutes.

These kind of desks do not have bars between the legs so you will not hit your knee when sitting down.

The bamboo top is very sensitive, scratches, pen marks are hard to remove, and it tends to crack too. Choose something else.

This desk is a great allrounder, ideal for mid-sized offices - they are large enough to fit everything you'd need, while not taking up all your space.

If you are using an external monitor you may want to consider the two-tier desks or getting a monitor mount.

These desks have a larger, 60" wide variants, see here. The design and the caveats are the same too - sturdy casters, a reliable crank for lowering or raising. Avoid the bamboo surface as it scratches and cracks easily. Choose the 60" desks if you want an extra large table, just make sure it fits in your office. Double check the height as it varies with the colors.

Two tier standing desks, 48" and 60" width, with a crank

These desks have a 48" or 60" wide surface split into two tiers: a 14" deep elevated tier in the back and a 16" deep lower tier in the front. The front tier is for your keyboard, while the elevated tier in the back is for your monitor.

Just as other Standing Desk Store items, this desks has sturdy locking casters too.

The lowest height for these desks are 29" for the lower surface and 33.5" for the elevated surface. The highest heights are 43" and 47.25".

These desks are operated using a hand crank, you'll have to crank for 1 to 2 minutes to change the height between the highest and lowest levels. While this sounds cumbersome, the crank is more reliable than other solutions.

The desk does not have cross-bars between the legs so you will not hit your knee or shin when sitting down for it.

This desk is specialized for those of you who want to use it with an external keyboard or monitor. The split surface limits what you can use the desk for. Single-surface desks are good for more use-cases, consider buying one with a monitor mount instead. The 48" wide one is good for most use-cases, the 60" is great for holding three monitors but may not fit small offices.

Flippable standing desk - 60" and 72" width

These desks are 60" and 72" wide, available with black legs and walnut / teak top. The desks are wide enough to host anything you might need, the 72" wide could host two people at the same time.

You can flip the desk's surface into upright position so it takes up less space. This makes it ideal for multi-purpose offices.

The desk is only 23.6" deep, which is way less than other standing desks. Make sure this depth is big enough for your needs.

All four desks in this category have minimum height of 30" and a maximum height of 42.5". The minimum height is higher than that of other standing desks.

The desks come with locking casters so you can move them around easily or lock them in place as needed. The casters are heavy-duty and can stand the test of time.

Height is set using a crank - you may need a bit of time to crank up and down between the maximum and minimum height. The crank is dependable solution and it's unlikely to break down.

This desk does not have bars between the legs so sitting down to them won't be an issue. The lowest height could still be a bit high for some.

Choose this desk if you have a multi-function office and space is a premium. If you want to switch roles for your office you can just flip the top surface, push the desk aside and use the freed-up space as you will.

For external monitors you'll need to get a monitor mount or a two-tier desk.

Standing desks with a drawer - 60" and 48" width

These two standing desk have a 60" and 48" wide surface and a drawer. These desks are only available in black. Even the 48" wide is big enough to host your laptop, external monitor and keyboard, notes, and pretty much anything else you'd need for work. Choose the 60" wide if you need even more space, if you use three monitors for example, and your office is large enough.

The drawer is not a keyboard tray.

Both desks have a minimum height of 29" and a maximum height of 42.75". You can go 2" or 3" lower by removing the casters.

Just as the previous desks these have a crank too, the cranking time is between 1 to 2 minutes between the lowest and highest setting.

There are no cross bars between the legs of the table so you will not hit your knee when sitting down to them.

Just as it's drawerless cousin, this desk is a great all-rounder, ideal for mid to large size offices. Choose this if you want standing desk with a drawer. If you do not need the drawer or want nicer colors go for the simple desks.

If you are using an external monitor you may want to consider the two-tier desks or getting a monitor mount - more on this later.

Electronically adjustable standing desks

These desks are very convenient as you only need to push a button to raise or lower them.

48" and 60" electronically adjustable standing desks

This family of standing desks feature a 48" or 60" wide surface, big enough to host your laptop, external monitor and keyboard, your notes, and still have some spair space for your snacks, mug and cat.

The casters are sturdy (this is true for every Stand Up Desk Store desk), two of the four casters are lockable so the desk won't roll away by itself.

For the 48" wide desks you can set the height between 27.25" - 53" or between 24.75" - 50.5" if you remove the casters. The 60" wide desk have different height depending on the color, see the table.

These desks use an electric motor to set the height. You can either set it by pushing the up or down buttons, or use the memory buttons and the desk will raise or lower itself to a height you previously stored. This is really convenient, go for this function! Not all 60" tables have memory function, check the table.

The desks have no cross-bars between the legs, so no hitting your knees or shin with these ones.

You can think of these desks as an upgrade of the simple crank-adjustable designs. Get these if you want more convenience at a bit higher price. The 60" wide one is not for small offices, however it's great for holding three monitors. Nothing beats the reliability of a simple crank.

You may want to get a monitor mount or check the two-tiered desks if you plan to use these with an external monitor.

48" variants:

These all have memory function and height between 27.25" - 53" or between 24.75" - 50.5" without the casters.

48" and 60" electronically adjustable two tier standing desks

These desks have a 48" or 60" wide split surface, with a lower and an elevated part. The 14" deep elevated part is at the back for your monitor, the 16" deep lower part is at the front for your keyboard.

Just as any other desk from Stand Up Desk Store, these desks come with sturdy lockable casters.

The lowest height for these desks is 28.87", the highest is 42.62". You can lower them a bit by removing the casters if you want to.

These desks use an electric motor to set the height, this is more convenient than a crank based design, but slightly less reliable. You can set the height by using the up and down buttons on the side of the desk. These desks have no memory function, check the single-surface desks if you want that here.

These desks have cross-bars (in fact cross-surfaces) which you'll probably hit when sitting down to these.

These desks are specialized for holding a monitor on the upper surface. This also reduces their flexibility as the split surfaces are smaller. You may want to check out simpler desks combined with a monitor mount. The 60" wide one is not for small offices.

Nothing beats the reliability of a simple crank, electronics will die faster.

Standing desks adjustable with studs or screws

These desks are a bit hard to adjust so you'll only want to set them once to the height you like. On the upside these desks are cheap and sturdy.

24", 32", 40" and 48" wide adjustable standing desks

These group of standing desks have a 24", 32", 40" and 48" wide split surface, the lower 16" deep surface in the front for your keyboard, the elevated 14" deep surface in the back for your monitor. The 24" desk is really tight and will only fit your keyboard and monitor, nothing else. The other desks are fine, the 40" and 48" have plenty of space for your office ware.

These desks have lockable casters too, so you can move them around or lock them in place as you wish.

The keyboard shelf is movable between 28.5" - 40.5", the top shelf is movable between 34.1" - 46.1". They are built together so you can't move them separately.

You can set the height in 1" increments using screws. This means you won't want to change the height often.

The split surface makes the desk specialized, if you want an allrounder go for a desk with a single surface and get a monitor mount.

These desks have cross-bars or cross-surfaces which you'll probably hit with your leg if you want to use these sitting.

Overall these desks are specialized, they are ideal as cheap and strudy stand-only workstations using an external keyboard and monitor. Do not choose these for sit-stand work or if you need a single large surface.

30" wide adjustable height stand up workstation

This stand-up workstation has a 30" wide top surface, a keyboard tray, and two shelves for your printer/computer and office ware. The top surface is fairly small, will only have place for the display and maybe a mug.

Sturdy locking casters make sure the workstation only moves when you want it to.

You can set the height between 34.5" and 45.5" in 1" increments using screws. This means you won't want to change the height often, so it's only usable as a stand-up workstation.

The shelves and cross-bar between the legs make this product unsuitable for use while sitting even if you get a standing desk chair.

This stand-up workstation is ideal if you want to work standing only, and have a really tight office or tight budget. You could also use it as a printing station, but there are better solutions for that.

Pneumatic standing desks

Pneumatic standing desks are convenient as it's easy to raise or lower the surface. However they can't hold as much as the other desks.

48" and 56" wide pneumatic adjustable standing desk

These desks have a 48" or 56" wide surface, both are large enough to hold whatever you might need for work - including your laptop, external keyboard, mouse, notes, calendar and snacks.

This desk comes without casters, moving them around will be hard.

You can set the height between 27.5" and 44.5". Setting the height is supported by pneumatic which you can activate using a lever on the front right of the table. You'll need your muscles too to raise the table, or to stop it from descending too fast.

Hitting the pneumatic lever accidentally could lead to the table crashing. The maximum table load is only 35 lbs.

The desk has a bar between the legs right bellow the surface. This could hit your knee when sitting down.

While this desk has plenty of surface and looks great, the pneumatic and the lack of casters make it less useful as the other desks. Consider getting an electronically adjustable or crank desk instead and remove the casters if those bother you.

If you are using an external monitor you may want to get a monitor mount or check one of the two-tier desks.

28" wide pneumatic adjustable table

This tiny pneumatic adjustable standing desk features a 28" wide surface, just enough for your laptop and notes. The desk is too small to host a keyboard and a monitor.

Just as other desks this comes with lockable casters too. Due to it's small size it's really easy to move around if you want it to.

The pneumatic unit has a 15" travel between 27.1" and 41.9", you can lock or unlock it using a lever. Once unlocked the pneumatic helps you raise or lower the desk by compensating for the weight of the desk surface.

Accidentally pushing the lever when the table is loaded with your laptop could cause it to crash.

This desk has a single-leg design, so you can use it with a standing-desk-chair if you want to.

Get this if you want a small and light desk, and you're sure the surface is large enough for you. The single column crank desk gives you more space, the crank is more reliable than the pneumatic.

You may not be able to fit a monitor mount to this desk.
