This is a solid desk and feels well built. I read a couple of reviews which complained about setup difficulty, but I can say that there was minimal installation required and it was simple. Specifically, the Keyboard tray needed to be attached to the desk.
+ The installation kit was modular (all parts self-contained and labeled to match the installation steps with clear illustrations) and all parts were keyed the same to match the included screwdriver. (1,2,3, 4 and done.) It could not have been clearer and easier.
+ The desktop is ample and the feel is substantial and the finish is sleek.
+ With a pneumatic assist, the desk height adjustment is smooth and easy and works by squeezing the 2 mounted side handles which aid in elevating the desk to the desired height. Releasing the handles engages 1of 9 total lockout positions at the desired height from desktop to full elevation.
+ The desktop raises in-place straight up and lowers straight down so the desktop footprint is always the same.
+ I added dual monitor arms (from Loctek) and installed them using the desktop cutout for grommet installation and these freed up desktop space.
Note: I did a lot of online research before I found this desk so Google around for online write-ups and youtube videos/comparisons. I believe I found a great mix of value, function and quality in this product and as I stated in the opening I am extremely happy with my Victor DCX760 adjustable desk.
I recommend this without qualification. I am getting on my colleagues’ nerves because I can’t stop talking about it.
Big things: very stable, easy to raise and lower, stays inside its own footprint (I don’t have room for the things that come forward as they raise up - plus, they’re not nearly as stable), spacious top surface allows me to use it as a writing surface even with two monitors and a large statute book, and the keyboard tray is plenty big for my large ergonomic wireless keyboard and phone and mug. I don’t feel like I have to be careful with anything - this thing just accommodates everything!
Little things: the edges are beveled - even better than avoiding bumps, the bevel fits a cable clip so all my cables are organized and run over the edge without weird pulls or humps or kinks. Also, the space underneath is big enough for my laptop, and the cross-bar just clears it... although it wouldn’t fit my dock, so check carefully. The ridges in the keyboard tray are appreciated - as much for my cellphone as for my pens. And it’s so easy to pop over to do stuff because I’m not turning my chair and heaving up... I’m already up. Finally, you can hide so much underneath this thing!
Strongly advise that the mat you get be FIRM - so much easier to get it out of the way of the chair when sitting. I bought the Victor "Steppie" board and mat combo. I call it my wobble board. It’s great for keeping the pelvis tilted and joints in motion, although I doubt it really helps with core strengthening - not enough wobble to cause you to engage much. But frankly, it’s really fun to rock back and forth. Maybe it counts as steps??
Regarding height: I’m 6’1" - 6’2" and the highest level is perfect for my posture. BUT: the "wobble board" adds significant height when standing even (about 3") and raises me too high, such that my wrists crank up to type. My solution is to keep one foot down and the other up - which is actually best for pelvic and lower back issues. But when I’m not doing heavy typing, I rock a lot and stand high sometimes.
Really glad I bought this. Wish I’d done it years ago. Can definitely feel an improvement in my body. Plus, it’s fun!
(I see why my colleagues get annoyed! LOL!)
Exceeded my expectations. Plenty of space for my iMac and Mac laptop. Great ergonomics. Easily lifts straight up and down, very sturdy, adjusts to numerous heights (I'm 6'3" and works great for me). Totally changed my desk, and ability to stand while working. Simple to attach the keyboard panel (8 screws). Love this!
Originally bought 2 of these from Costco...after doing much research. Employees like them and they are rock solid and easy to assemble. Went to buy 2 more but Costco stopped selling this model...so, I searched Amazon and found them. Ordered 2 more of the exact same model... once again, employees love them. Going to buy 2 more later this week. The first 2 (Costco models) came with an attachable monitor stand, but this model is easily big enough for two 24" monitors to stand on desktop with plenty of room left over to work on....so I opted to not use/install the monitor stands.
I was concerned that this desk would be unstable at its height, but it actually feels quite solid.
I've got a 15.6 inch laptop and a 21-inch monitor on it. Works well. It is a heavy piece of office furniture, but that hardware is a positive thing.
Easy to raise and lower, but I'd recommend making sure you have a cord-keeper or some other plan to make sure you don't get wires caught up in the mechanism.
