Ergotron makes some of my favorite sit stand desks. The company has been working on sit stand desks for the past few years, and is announcing a new Sit Stand Desk and updates to various Sit Stand configurations.
The new desk is the WorkFit-D, which offers a full size desk that raises and lowers. It is also compatible with the Ergotron Arms for Monitors so that you can get just the right size.
The WorkFit-D is the sit stand desk I have been looking for. I have reviewed the WorkFit-C, a sit stand desk on wheels with a small worksurface. I have also used the WorkFit-S, which bolts on to your existing desk too. I like both of these solutions, but I miss the full work surface that you get with a traditional desk. The new WorkFit-D solves this problem beautifully.
The WorkFit-D can be raised or lowered in a 20″ range and offers a 23″ deep x 48″ wide workspace. There are a number of accessories which can be added including monitor arms, a keyboard and mouse mount as well as a floor mat to fight fatigue from standing.
In addition to the new desk which retails for $899, Ergotron has updated the WorkFit-C. The new version looks much nicer, less clinical, than the early version. This retails for around $800 depending on your configuration.
The WorkFit-S remains as it was, but they do offer several new accessories including a tablet/paper holder, attachable work surface and more to customize the experience. The thing I like most about this unit is the affordable price and ability tot work with almost any existing desk. The WorkFit-S starts at $379.
Each of these Sit Stand configurations support one to two monitors and can be configured with a monitor and a laptop if you desire. The company is now offering conversion kits for users that want to switch form a Laptop/LCD configuration to dual LCD etc.
I have been using a sit stand desk for over a year now and my back is loving it. The extra calories I burn while i stand are also quite helpful when holiday season arrives. I’m not getting skinny using a sit stand desk, but my back is noticeably better and my weight stays in check better.
While I ma in the process of moving I haven’t had my sit stand desk, which has given me some back pain and a hit in productivity as I feel more confined.
