    Autonomous Sit-to-Stand Desk

    $299 Electric height adjustable standing desk w/ memory pad

    An Autonomous electric standing desk is key. I find that I sit too often (on the computer, driving, eating) and it's not healthy to do so. If you can switch some of those working hours to standing meetings, working, or white-boarding, your body will thank you!

      I bought one of their DIY desk sets and when I was setting it up learned the specs on their website weren't even close to what they shipped me. I contacted them and they initially said to just return it if I wasn't happy (which isn't the easiest with a 100 lbs assembled desk frame), but eventually promised they would ship me the right product... After a few followup emails from me, the suddenly just stopped responding, I'm still with the wrong desk, and their website still has the wrong specs. I question if they'd honour their warranty.

      Don't be fooled by this company – although their product and marketing strategy is made to attract us product loving tech community – their service is terrible, slow and plain bed.

      We bought 6 desks, but upon arrival the desks turned out to be much smaller (aka unusable if you want a display on it) than what was listed on their website. They don't mention this anyway, except when you choose to order a customized desk.

      After complaining they offered a very small return compensation and it turned out they don't have any other sizes in stock to exchange with.

      After a long and slow thread we finally got green light to return the order. We returned the desks over 2 months ago, but the refund is still not made. We've asked for updates and info, usually after 10-20 days we got a reply which basically state that they would get back to us with more info, which never came.

      In the meantime we've order desks locally, and it turns out the overall quality of the desks is also very much below industry standards.

      Update: They now correctly display the proper sizes delivered to EU. Seems they besides keeping your money, the also keep your feedback and implement it.

      Don't buy the knock-off products - get the original from Antsy Labs. While the knock-offs may be good quality, it isn't fair to reward them for stealing the design and getting to market sooner than Antsy Labs did.

    A super affordable, portable standing desk

    Cheap, quick setup, and easy to store. More importantly (at least for me), it's way easier to work for longer periods of time while standing up and being able to move around.

    Picked this up a year ago & can't work without it at this point. Having two screens is essential, especially when you're bouncing between different accounts or windows quickly 💯

    I drink Soylent for breakfast every morning - super quick, fills you up, and it's actually healthy for you too. I can't say I'd recommend a 100% Soylent diet, but it's perfect as a quick pick-me-up in the morning. If you also like ☕️ in the morning, try out Coffiest - it's Soylent with a shot of espresso inside.
