Now we’re onto the true height adjustable standing desks, where the entire surface adjusts from sitting to standing. A vast majority of sit to stand desks used today are electric, and with good reason: the obvious benefit of using an electric desk is that you don’t have to do any manual lifting. If you purchase a desk with a memory controller, they also remember your favorite settings and adjust there with the simple push of a button. How nice is that?! However, there are some drawbacks, such as the need for local power, immobility, and speed.
Pros: No lifting required, 1-touch adjustment (if memory controller)
Cons: Needs to be located near an outlet, Slow to adjust
