I recently joined an institution after having had a private practice where I had a beautiful sit to stand desk. I bought the Ergotron WorkFit after doing a lot of online research on various options. I liked the low profile of the desk, and it's minimalist design. As described, it was very easy to install (ie: take out of the box and put on my desk). I was able to do it by myself - putting my hours of strength training to work. Would have been much easier, though, if I'd had another person. I am very happy with the sturdiness of the desk. As I read in some reviews, it can be hard to lower initially, requiring a second set of hands to put pressure on the surface of the desk while I held the release handles.
I am very happy with the desk, and recommend it.
This is the best stand up desk. It has the lowest starting height and an adjustable keyboard. Super easy set-up, pull out of box, put into place, remove 2 small transport pieces and your done. Will also handle 2 large monitors with its large base. We have three in our office now and looking to add a forth.
The keyboard and mouse space are much too tight. A standard keyboard and mouse barely fit the width and depth. The keyboard qwerty section sits left of center (relative to the surface that holds the monitor) when there is enough room for the mouse on the right. This causes either sitting/standing off center from the surface that holds the monitor or an uncomfortable inward/leftward twist of the right elbow and shoulder in order to type on the qwerty. The number pad of the keyboard is at the neutral position, but I don't use that much. The surface that holds the monitor overhangs my desk surface by 5 inches. My monitor and laptop screens need to be more forward than in the product images due to bifocals, so there's some risk of the whole unit tipping forward. Certainly I could not lean on it when it is raised. There's zero room for using anything but a keyboard -- no room for a note book, sketchpad, papers you're referencing or transcribing, coffee cup. When standing I'm having to take written notes using a small space in front of the monitor, which means I'm raising up my arms and shoulders. When seated I can roll to the conventional desk surface, but then I am not viewing my monitor with any ease. This unit requires a manual adjustment to change from sit/stand. There are no presets and no marks or anything by which to judge what height you're at. I'll probably learn it by feel over time, but right now I have to fiddle with the heights every time. Your cords are a mess behind the thing all the time. I've had to tape them down otherwise they fall when moving the surface up and down. Sometimes the PC's AC adapter gets under and blocks the whole thing from lowering fully. The channel on the underside of the surface works for stuff you never need to move, but if you have to take your power cord or anything with you regularly, the channel is too much of a hassle to use.
- Response for Ergotron: Sorry to hear about your disappointment, and thank you for this feedback. If the worksurface of the WorkFit-TX overhangs your desktop by five inches, it means the TX may not be an appropriate solution for your space. The WorkFit-TX requires that the desktop be at least 24 inches deep. Were your desktop this depth, you could safely lean on the TX without concern. We also recommend managing your system's cables and cords as shown in the installation manual. Please contact Ergotron customer care at 800-888-8458 should you need further assistance.
It took me a while and did some research on all brands of converter desks. I purchased the Ergotron TX because the reviews were positive. I liked everything about the Ergotron TX. Just got this today and had it installed and I’m loving every bit of it. Great brand. Seen other converter desk and just by comparison this is by far the best converter desk. Most of heard and seen seem to wobble this one does not at all has enough work space to put your documents on top. Buy Ergotron brand and you will not regret!!! Thank you Ergotron.
Quality is good! Shipping was fast! Easy installation! The adjustable Keyboard was key for me!
This is a true full sit and full stand desk top converter, meaning the keyboard tray portion moves below the front edge of the desktop allowing for neutral upper extremity posture with seated data entry- no need to elevate the shoulder blades reaching to the desktop for the keyboard and therefore eliminating the main cause of upper trap and neck fatigue. The platform has only a 2 inch rise in the lowest position which is makes the monitors able to stay low for bifocal users.
