If you’re looking for a sit stand desk solution and don’t want to break the bank there’s good news! You have several options and one of the good ones is this highly rated Varidesk height adjustable standing desk.
One of the great features is that it will quickly integrate into whatever desk you are (or aren’t) using right now – you can slap this onto your existing desk or table and away you go. This is a great feature for those wanting to dip their toes in the standing desk water or for the fully committed looking for a smaller footprint.
Why is this split level adjustable desk popular?
Well, right off the bat it lets you set up a laptop with monitor, or dual monitor standing solution with an easy “pop up” frame. That means you can put it on your existing desk and easily slip it up, or slip it down for sitting.
The price is also good, coming in at less than nearly all full standing desks. The Varidesk is more expensive than other options in the same category, but with very high reviews and a known background in building and designing these desks.
The design is robust but not overly complicated, with black and silver colors and a lower keyboard tray that helps keep your monitors at a less strain inducing elevation when standing.
Speaking of standing, this desk includes the Varidesk spring assisted lift feature that lets you quickly raise and lower the desk without using a hand crank or straining your back.
The Varidesk rises to 17.5 inches when fully extended and features a 36 inch wide platform for your monitors. This can easily fit many dual monitor setups, but be sure to measure or find out the dimensions of your monitors before ordering!
Users report being able to fit up to 2 x 27 inch monitors with a tight fit and easily fitting 2 x 24 inch monitors.
The weight capabilities are listed as up to 35 lbs – this is great for your keyboard, a laptop or notebooks, and monitors. However, this means that you probably won’t be putting much else on it. That’s not a problem for the vast majority of users, and honestly, it’ll probably help us keep our desk cleaner!
The Varidesk comes ready to work. There’s no assembly required so you just unpack it and configure it on your desk or table.
Once you’ve tested the angle and height then you should bring over a monitor and keyboard or laptop and make sure it’s working correctly for you.
That’s really about it – pretty simple and fast to get started.
