    Want the most comfortable position, any suggestions on electric desks with height adjustment?

    Funny, I was just considering that desk. I like that one of the designs has a little bit of desk space jutting out. I think it's more conformable to be able to sometimes put the mouse at the edge of the desk.

    one of the big things, in my opinion is having desks that go low enough. Either that or having a keyboard tray.

    No one in this thread mentioned an ikea desk.
    I am on my second ikea desk and I think they have both been good. I am surprised there are bad reviews. But, regardless, the one year return policy that ikea has is a huge plus so I wouldn't worry too much about bad reviews. This is all assuming you don't get hit with a very large shipping cost to ship it back.

    I love my steelcase Ology. I got an L shaped desk personally but they come in many different configurations. The thing is built like a brick shithouse, goes up and down without straining even when fully loaded with all the stuff on my desk. Also, it goes literally as high or as low as you want.

    I got mine with the digital preset control, so I programmed in preset heights. It always returns to the exact height I have preset, I highly recommend that option. There also a number of addon cable management things, including the little thing on the right side (check the attached photo) that allows you to run your power, network cables etc. cleanly down the side. I also bought a little basket that holds my USB hub, loose power supplies and excess cables. I was able to zip tie a Trip-Lite power bar to power everything on the desk.

    Not sure if you made a choice or not but I see this thread seems to still be receiving replies so, if you are still interested in the info....

    Very nice setup; is that a Sennheiser HD 6xx I see on the left?

    Thanks.

    Actually those are Sennheiser HD 650s. I've had them for quite a few years. I love them.

    I really like when we have threads that go on for several years. It often results in a very comprehensive conversation.

    What are the 2 items below the monitor?

    Left monitor: Thermometer and Surface Pro

    Center monitor:
    Blue Yeti hiding between
    Uniden scanner (mostly for listening to ham radio)
    Sansui integrated amplifier to drive some Yamaha satellite speakers tucked behind the monitor. I used to have some nice PSB bookshelves but no room with the ultra wide monitor.

    As I said, the mechanism on this desk has no trouble lifting everything. Also even in the standing position the desk is extremely stable. Also, I have had it for 2 years with no issues.

    I would recommend looking into a "Fully Jarvis", they make a stand up desk that can be either powered or manual crank, comes in multiple sizes and configurations, and is 'reasonably' inexpensive for what you get. It has a 300+lb weight rating, 4 memory positions and various color options.

    I've only owned one for a few months, but love it and it seems to be well reviewed every where I look. I'm just getting my Office back together after a daughter moved out, but here are a couple quick shots (center desk):

    I like mine which I got from Biomorph. It is probably a bit expensive compared to some other sit/stand desks today, but came with a lot of options.

    Most of these standing desks are almost the same top and legs. I ended up with an L shape UpLift Eco model because of a coupon I had, but many other brands have almost the same legs, capacity, tops, etc..
