Standing Desk Stories September 28, 2017

There are many different styles of standing desks out there. Some are motorized, some are manual. Some have programmable buttons for certain heights, and some are even a few thousand dollars. But Autonomous is a brand we’ve come to know around here, and they make some awesome (and affordable) standing desks. Earlier this year we reviewed the SmartDesk 2 from Autonomous, and we loved it, especially at the price it launched at. Now the company is back at it with the SmartDesk 3, what they claim is an AI-powered SmartDesk for just $599.

We’re big proponents of standing desks here at 9to5Toys. As someone who works from home, I’m well aware of the challenges that come with sitting all day. While there are plenty of options on the market, prices have largely kept this product category out of the impulse purchase range.

Recently, we told you about NextDesk’s latest motorized creation that retails for $447. Today we’ve spotted a new Indiegogo project that cuts the price tag and offers a modular solution for nearly any setup. The OMBEE features a unique design with an eye on customization. Its price comes in at less than an iPad mini, making it an attractive option for those who prefer a more affordable solution.

The CrossOver from NextDesk turns nearly any setup into a motorized standing desk

NextDesk is not new to the game when it comes to standing desks. The benefits of not sitting in your chair all day have been well documented by now. However, up until the last year prices were generally too high for most consumers. The latest project from NextDesk aims to change all that by serving as a suitable add-on to nearly any existing setup.

Just add the CrossOver workstation to a table or desk and you’ll have an elevated space in no time. This isn’t just a stationary solution. It ships with a built-in motor that can raise and lower the table to your exact specifications plus dedicated spaces for a keyboard or other accessories. For another $50 you can add the Programmable Memory Controller that remembers your desired height to work at. Additional options include a dual monitor brackets and the option for recycled aluminum instead of steel.

The CrossOver is available in six wood finishes with three different colors of metal for the arms and legs. You can pre-order today with a $50 down payment, NextDesk expects to begin shipping in late March. Prices start at $447 and go up from there depending on features and finishes.
