My Report: I Got a Standing Desk

My Report: I Got a Standing Desk

So as my old desk was falling apart, it was time to buy a new desk and I wanted to get a standing desk as I now work from home. I use to stand for 8 hours a day as an instructor but now I sit on my butt all day and something needed to change.

What Standing Desk Did I Buy

I bought the Smart Desk 2 from Autonomous.ai and they start at $299, I went for the $399 model as it goes a little higher, and had a little bigger desktop. It took a few hours to put together (not too hard) and it works as expected.

The Surprises

I needed a new desk as everytime I pulled out the drawers of the desk, they would fall apart. This desk has no drawers. No big deal, I'll just buy a small cabinet. I have a filing cabinet, I wanted more of a few things with doors to hide junk behind. I found this four shelf cabinet for $36

Then I noticed that when I raise my desk, my mouse almost fell off, and I almost pulled my monitor off the desk. I needed extension cables. So I got a USB extension cable for my Mouse for $6. and an extended VGA cable for my monitor

Then as my feet were killing me, I needed a standing pad for $60 some of these pads go up to $120 (that are easier to move around)

The videos of many standing desks show them with iMacs or Laptops. Neither one of these computers have cables. Keep this in mind.

  1. Thanks for the report. I recently got a standing desk at work. On thing that helps with the wires is using a wireless mouse/keyboard. The only wires required are for the monitors.
    I ended up getting an Uplift desk through work, but looked at the Smart Desk for home as well.
