Re: Health/Back Concerns

I picked up this one: BEKANT Desk sit/stand - birch veneer/white - IKEA It was a bit more than I wanted to spend, but looking back soo much worth it. It's like 2 meters by 1 meter, fits dual monitor & speakers etc just fine with a nice spread. It was pretty easy to put together & operate, although there's a wierd key for the up/down trigger, but once you get that figured out it's up & down with motorized ease.

I've come to look at life this way, things that last a long time are worth spending a bit more on. As per day/per month/per year it averages out to a small bit more. A desk like this should last 10 years easy (let's hope). I figure the motor should last long. It's not like I move it around up & down all the time, once I've found my height I've mostly left it. Though I imagine I'll check out more of a stand height now & then.

Thx! was not even aware they had that in their assortment and that is coming from someone who has worked 15 year for IKEA :) In Europe this desk comes with a 10 year warranty but didn't see that notice on the US site.

Re: Health/Back Concerns
Yeah Ikea's a great store. I really like the DIY vibe they put off, here in America we need that. "There's your stuff, over there in a box. Go take it and go home and put it together yourself".

I hear they're incredible with logistics and disassembling and packing their products to consolodate & save on shipping & storage. I'm a fan, but I admit sometimes I open the box, look at the instructions and think "Uggghh, this isn't going to be good".

Re: Health/Back Concerns
I even have visited the place where the founder of IKEA was born which was one of many work related visits to Sweden, fun times but also already 11 year ago when I left, we still buy at IKEA and the only thing I regret is not getting any discount anymore as co-worker. :)
