[Standing Desk Highlight] Desky Sit Stand Desk: Review of Features and Specifications
In the market for a new standing desk? Check out another review we’re doing of one of the popular desks you will see out there: the Desky sit stand desk.
We understand that a standing can be a big investment—in terms of effort and money. After all, not only are you spending for a furniture, but you are also creating a big lifestyle shift. It’s only normal to wish to do it right the first time. And where best to start that in finding the right desk.
Is the Desky sit stand desk right for you? Let’s find out.
An Overview of the Desky Sit Stand Desk
Desky is a Canada-based standing desk company that also ships its products to other countries. It offers both manual and electric standing desks, dual and single motor desks, including small single tables. For this specific review, we are looking at the dual mini Desky sit stand desk, the model comparable to MotionGrey’s flagship standing desk, the Motion Series sit stand desk.
A Closer Look at the Desky Sit Stand Desk
Similar to our previous review HERE, we will also look at the two major parts of the Desky sit stand desk—the frame and the table top.
The Standing Desk Frame
- Powered by a dual motor
- Designed with 3-stage telescopic legs
- Comes with a height range of 23.6” to 49.2”
- Can carry up to 308.6 lbs
- Can travel at 1.4” per second
The Desky sit stand desk excels in terms of its load capacity, one of the standing desks in the market that can carry over 300 lbs of weight. It may be a good option for users who will need their desk to carry a high amount of weight. In terms of the rest, it is comparable to the Motion Series sit stand desk—the dual motors, the 3-segment frame, including the height range and travel speed.
The Table Top
- Made from MDF material
- Comes in 4 different sizes
- Offered in white or black
- Equipped with a four-position memory keypad
In terms of the table top, Desky and Motiongrey appear to offer table top of comparable quality. The material is the same, almost the same options in terms of color and size. One thing MotionGrey has always been proud of is its focus on sustainability, and thus the availability of a table top made from recyclable material (recycled chopsticks). So if you want to take part in efforts to care for the planet, you can check that option in the MotionGrey catalog.
Technological Features of the Desky Sit Stand Desk
The Desky standing desk is equipped with several protective features that will keep it, and your space, safe and secure. Check out the following:
- Collision detection to protect against any damage or accident due to the desk bumping with something else while it is moving.
- Overload protection to prevent desk damage in case the weight on the desk is more than it can handle.
- Child lock prevention that will lock the keypad to protect your desk against accidental triggers that may cause it to move unintentionally.
Price and Warranty
The Desky sit stand desk is offered with a limited 10-year warranty. It starts at $769 to up to $799. Compared to the Motion Series standing desk, it has a longer warranty (the MotionGrey desk has 8 years warranty coverage), but the Desky sit stand desk is more expensive. The Motion Series standing desk is offered at only $499.99, and with comparable features.
