    Pros: 

    sturdy yet cmfortable to use

    Cons: 

    less of colors

    You may not be aware of all the benefits a good foot rest for under the desk brings. I have selected here over 20 footrests offering excellent value.

    usedfurn has used this product for one year.

This is great. In terms of the market, I think this will make a big splash considering the next cheapest motorized standing desks start at over $700 (minus standdesk.co which is pre-order only).
I bought one here in Vancouver, Canada. Been using it for about 2 weeks now. I went with the white base with tabletop. I thought that the birch looked kinda cheap in the showroom. The white top is OK. Classic Ikea tabletop. The base is excellent. The motor takes the tabletop from about a height of 22" to about 48" in about 20 seconds. The base was $500 CAD and the tabletop was $80. If you're putting together an office, buy this desk and ditch the classic Galant desk.
I knew they would do this eventually but thought they would go for a much lower price point.
@Percival agreed, seems pretty pricey. I'd say at about 2 - 300 would be more reasonable.
This desk has been available for quite some time in the Netherlands. I bought it over 2 years ago, and it works like a charm. Highly recommend it.
@workbymark Same for Sweden. Ikea has been selling motorized standing desks here for quite a long time. Happy to see they decided to start selling these products in other countries as well.
is this available to purchase right now?
