Have you ever been playing your favorite computer game, or even working on one of those long papers but lost your ability to concentrate? Your chair isn't comfortable enough, and it starts to hurt your legs and thighs from simply sitting there. It's time to get up and walk around, but you can't take a break when you're on such a roll! Let's jump into the Evodesk Standing Desk Review.
Introducing the Evodesk Standing Desk. It's not the first of it's kind, but it is one of the most revolutionary sitting-standing desks currently out and has become extremely popular among gamers. Be prepared for the more detailed Evodesk Standing Desk review, bringing you even the tiniest details from putting the desk together to taking it apart (but you won't want to!)
The Evodesk Standing Desk is marketed for home or small offices users. They also have high-end PRO series for the office. It has some unique additions that other desks do not have that separate it from the rest of the crowd, especially for people that spend hours at their desk and computer. Why? Not only does the desk offer the option to sit or stand, which has fantastic health benefits, but it also has an Evoguard finish to it.
The finish is a harder treatment than most desks have, and it's built to be durable enough to resist scratching from the mouse being moved back and forth continuously. It takes away the need to continuously buy mouse pads, which get dirty and wear down over time. The finish is meant to feel like a genuine mouse pad, so the mouse isn't flailing everywhere and gives the user more control.
Also, the desk is equipped with Ergo Edge, which is a curved indentation that allows your body to be closer to the computer without leaning over the sharper edges of the desk. The contoured edges keep your arms and wrist from hurting after leaning them against the desk for an extended period of time.
This is all a matter of comfort - the standard desks don't match up because of the various additions. Surprisingly, while other desks offer a similar finish, none of them are as durable or allows for such precision.
And of course, it can go from sitting to standing. Plenty of desks have this feature, but what makes the Evodesk Standing Desk special is that it does so on a motor that memorizes your favorite heights. Also, it changes height in 1.5 seconds, making it the best in its class.
The real big difference is it is extremely sturdy. Most standing desks are cheap feeling, and you can feel them wobble when typing. This desk is solid even when fully extended.
It is awesome that you can customize your desk, but what I find the most fun is the 8,000 different variations that you can choose from for your desk. Almost all of it is customizable, leading you to get the shape desk that works for you, as well as making sure it matches the decor of your room.
Do you have multiple monitors that you like to use? The desk holds up to 355 pounds, which means you can pile on the monitors and computers if that's how you roll!
There are three different desktop options to go with, and all of them are highly sustainable:
My personal favorite is the natural bamboo because it matches everywhere and the colors are truly beautiful. Plus, my mouse isn't scratching up the desk, and after a few weeks, it still looks as good as when I first purchased it!
The experience is both easy and fun thanks to the Evodesk website. It includes all of the different customizations that will make your desk suited perfectly to you, starting with choosing the right desk for you, and then choosing the shape that works best for you. You can get in the typical rectangular shape, or they offer a slight contour in the middle with the Ergo Edge.
If that doesn't work for you, there's also what's called Studio L, but it's a larger contour on the right side, especially perfect for keeping notes on one side. I have a freind that is left-handed, and he found that the Studio L design is the left-handed person's dream come true because of that extra space on the left. However, you get to choose the side with the extra space, so right-handers, there's a desk for you too!
Next, you choose your material, which as I said, I completely recommend the genuine bamboo, but all of them are beautiful finishes without any guilt as they don't harm the environment. The different finishes include white, black or slate gray. All of the desk options come in various sizes as well, depending on how much space you have to work with.
As for the additional options, you can add a storage pod to the underside middle of the desk, which is a good place to put pens, etc. It provides an extra 1175 square inches of storage. You can also add a highrise desktop option if you want. I didn't find either necessary, but they depend entirely on what you are using the desk for.
You can add a desk shield skin if you want for added protection. I didn't feel the need, but there are different colors you can choose as well as the "designer" selection, which includes a broad range of different cool-looking designs including a galaxy design (which would have been my pick!)
That sounds like a lot of choices already, but you're still not done. Choose between a two-button standard controller or the LED-light programmable memory with four settings. You can add a keyboard platform if you wish. As I said before, it depends on what you're used to and where you like your monitors and keyboards.
The point is, all of it is customizable to the point where it will be obvious that it's yours. They offer a sound system that fits perfectly toward the back underside of the desk and acts as a sub. The monitor arm system will allow you to lift your monitor off of the actual desk, giving you some precious space back.
After all of this, shipping usually takes 4 to 5 days at most and can take less time depending on your desk specifications and configuration. It's safe to say that your desk will look differently from anyone else!
The assembly isn't too hard to put together at all. It takes one to two hours with the help of another person to put it all together. Having a drill is a good idea for setup, and it's easy to use once it's set together.
The more additions you order, the more you'll have to add, though some of the items can be installed by a technician ahead of time. if you get a desk with the extra programmable memory, it's not hard to set up.
After that, your desk is ready with the push of a button. It's very sturdy and doesn't need any extra stabilization, nor does it shake when you start adding your computer to the mix. It's not very difficult at all to set the different heights you want, and after you're done, you only need to press the button once quickly for it to change heights.
It certainly does! Working from home, I was used to sitting for extended periods of time but often had to get up and takes breaks. With my new desk, I was completely comfortable throwing my old one out and can stand whenever I'd like with the touch of a button.
Standing is different at first, but once you are used to it (and definitely invest in an anti-fatigue mat), it improved my circulation to the point where I wasn't in pain, even after long hours of standing.
The different customizations of the Evodesk Standing Desk make it very competitive for even a small office desk. Whether it's at home or in your place of business, this desk if perfect for those that are on the computer for long periods of time at work, and decrease the pain of carpal tunnel.
Overall, the Evodesk Standing Desk offers a wide variety of benefits to those that are often on a computer, whether it's gaming or business.
Is it worth it? Absolutely. So if you really aren't sure whether you're ready to spend the money, read an Evodesk Standing Desk review. All you'll find is all the reasons why you should have one, and you might wish shipping was even faster!
