          Deal posted below, revised discount per unit from $30 to $50. Thanks for your research.

        •  

          @Ausergo: We love when reps work with us and do things like this but don't forget in the end this is now 5$ cheaper than we could get it before you posted, well worth the advertising and presumably, sales you have got.

        • +4 votes

          @dfaktz: Please consider the fact that the price of $280 people are able to obtain on eBay is through vouchers not associated with Ausergo. (ie. we still receive $299 for an eBay sale regardless of which vouchers you use to bring the price down). In beating that deal by $5 for Ozbargain customers we have had to lower our price by $24/unit. Once you factor in the wildly varying costs of providing free shipping there is not a lot of skin in the game.

          In the end, $5 cheaper than the cheapest price is still pretty cheap :)

    How are these compared to the Officeworks versions? They are a fair bit cheaper and support up to 40kg according to the product pages.

      The Wynston sit stand desk is not the same product. It has half the warranty (5 years) and does not adjust straight up and down like the Deskalator. When you raise the Wynston it comes towards you.

      The Deskalator also has a greater adjustment range (150 to 500mm) over the Wynston (165 to 415mm)

    • +1 vote

      I was given an earlier model of the Wynston desk. I love it…except for it's height. I'm an average/short bloke, and I reckon I need a bit more height. So if I was in the market for a new desk, I'd buy one that goes 500mm high any day!

  •  

    Bought this from officeworks for $249 a few weeks ago. It maybe not be of the same quality as this one. But I am really happy with it. It can accommodate two 24" monitors.

    How does this compare against the equivalent Varidesk? We have those, however I find it wobbles a little too much for my liking when you put pressure on it.

    •  

      This product was actually designed to address the main issues with the Varidesk, namely:

      *The Varidesk moves backward when raised, which can cause problems associated with over-reaching
      *When adjusting the Varidesk to standing height, you are required to lift the entire weight of unit yourself (including your monitors) whereas the Deskalator has a gas lift which attends to this function, taking the strain off your back.
      *The Deskalator is exceptionally sturdy and does not wobble when raised

      Not a bad product, but with an adjustment range 87-132cm this is technically an adjustable standing desk, not a sit to stand desk. ie. it has no sit function.

      •  

        I wonder how low your current table is if you think 87cm isnt a normal table height…

        • +3 votes

          Your average desk height is between 70-75cm. 87cm is around waist height for most people. Which would leave you with your forearms sloping upward if you were sitting. Very uncomfortable and not ergonomic in the least.

  •  

    Im yet to find one of these that are ergonomic for a tall person.
    Usually, i end up with a sore neck from looking down at the keyboard because none of them go high enough.
    Im only 183CM (6') but to be properly ergonomic it needs to be higher.

    •  

      See my post immediately below for a possible adaptation.

      I used to have trouble looking at the keyboard as well, as i could never learn to type using a QWERTY keyboard layout given it's made for a machine, not man (Google is your friend).

      But then i decided to learn to type with a Dvorak keyboard layout, and it took me no time at all and i've been laughing ever since.

      Sounds like you might need to go for a complete Sit/Stand Desk. Take a look at the Squareline:

      https://www.ausergo.com.au/products/squareline-sit-stand-des...

      We have amended the discount code EOFY2017 to apply to this product as well so you can still get $50 off.

      I just received mine (Medium) at work today.
      I'm also 183cm tall, but I have no problems with it.
      I think it depends on the height of your desk and whether or not your monitor has a stand.

      So good, I ended up buying another one for home.

        Glad you like it tavisking! We'll dispatch your second Deskalator ASAP.

    Note the OP's outfit has quite a few other things that may interest folk.

    But back to the post - one problem you might encounter is that the vertical distance between the upper and lower platforms does not appear to be adjustable. This can be a major issue, especially if you're tall.

    To accommodate this, at least if you have a VESA mountable monitor, is to get a clamp-type monitor stand so that the first thing you set is the keyboard height, and only then adjust the monitor height via the stand.

    This is perhaps one of the most adaptable monitor stands around, that i've already mentioned in my much unappreciated poor man's adjustable desk opus.

    Of course if someone sold a monitor stand with a much longer pole, then you could simply attach it to your main desk, so that all the current item is actually doing for you is supporting your keyboard, and that's a lot to pay for a keyboard platform.

    No need to thank me - just send money.

      Pity this has been negged to oblivion as it continued as a sensible thread (big kudos to the OP for the initial response there), maybe the use of a sarcasm icon would have stopped the rabid ultraneggers…maybe. Gave a +ve, in the hope that perhaps others will follow.

      "The profit margin on these must be super, super, super high."….perhaps that applies to above entry level laptops as well.

      Getting back on track if the office item here is a non entry level item it could be that the same criteria applies to both the desk and medium and above laptops thus it is not overpriced as alleged initially.

      •  

        "The profit margin on these must be super, super, super high."….perhaps that applies to above entry level laptops as well.

        Not a chance. Which is why the manufacturers do so many deals with the software vendors to foist crap on you.

        Anyway, for laptop use, there are far cheaper alternatives all over ebay. For other uses, fine…sure, this may be for some people. Then again you could also build your own electrically controlled desk with linear actuators off ebay for less money, but that is a DIY job (but far more capable).

          Yes it doesn't take much to hold up a laptop.
          But for other stand-alone monitors something like this might be useful.

    Looks verrrry similar to Kogan's medium desk, which I've been following on eBay for the last fortnight (same weight rating, dimensions, frame, gas lift function) that consistently sell between $150 and $220. They relist it every day.

      They are virtually the same, except Kogan only offer a 12 mth warranty whereas our Deskalator is 10 years. They do occasionally have flash sales that vary wildly in price, stock can be hard to find.

    Have something similar to this at work and it's brilliant. Even standing for a few periods each day will greatly improve your posture, can lower cholesterol, make you feel more energetic and active etc.

  •  

    What size is best?

    •  

      That depends on how much desk space you have and how many monitors you are using. If you are using two or more monitors then go for the medium, otherwise the small should do the trick as ultimately all you really need to be raising is your monitor, keyboard and mouse.

      •  

        Awesome, OK, thanks. I have a 30 inch monitor but not sure if I'll be upgrading or adding to that in the future.

        •  

          30 inches is a pretty decent sized monitor (basically a TV at that point), so in your case I'd definitely recommend the medium size.

        • +2 votes

          @Ausergo: What are you talking about? TVs start at 85 inches!! :) thanks for the advice!

  •  

    Just a comment…I work from home and have a six monitor setup so when the op says gas lift is a selling/safety point then I'd say, in my case, damn sure it would be…though I'm not sure whether the weight of my stand would overpower or rapidly wear out the gas lift (don't know what the weight is but it's a sturdy stand and allup, even with LCD's, it's damn heavy)

    •  

      The weight capacity of both sizes is 15kg, so even if you could manage to fit them all on there (by way of a multiple monitor arm for example) then any load on the unit that is more than 15kg you would essentially be lifting yourself.

      So if an average monitor weight is around 7kg…7 x 6 = 42kg

      A monitor arm capable of holding 6 monitors would be at least 15kg, so in total you'd be lifting around 40kg of weight yourself. Not ideal from an ergonomic standpoint, you'd be better off getting a complete electric sit stand desk that can lift 100kg, such as the following:

      EARLYEOFY2017 code will work with that desk too.

    Hi folks, I figured I'd weigh into this as I own a Wynston standing desk from Officeworks and a Varidesk Pro Plus 48 (which I think is called a Cube Plus now). Both are similar but an important difference is the width of the keyboard tray - you want to make sure your keyboard tray is as wide as possible. The officeworks one is much more narrow (its also a narrow unit in general) and annoyingly, the tray doesn't flare out to the sides like the Varidesk. This means that you have to get used to having your keyboard and mouse in a more compact area. Regarding ease of use, the varidesk is easier to raise with 2 large monitors and a heavy laptop on it than the Officeworks one with just one monitor and a laptop. So much so that my wife complains she can't easily operate the Officeworks one without hurting her back.

    This one does look like its got a decent sized tray, but only if you get the medium. I wouldn't bother with the small size. I wonder if the gas lift is a better mechanism for lifting, I hope it is. I'm concerned with its rated 15kg weight limit. Even though you're not meant to, you'll find yourself leaning forward a bit when you're standing for an extended period, thus adding to the weight of the desk. Technically the Varidesk is rated the same, so its probably fine.

    Regarding the whole "lifting directly up" vs "lifting forward", I don't really mind lifting forward. It does mean that you'll need a bit more space behind you (not much more), but on the other hand, if it goes directly up, you would need probably want to have the standing desk hanging a bit off the table (forward) so that your legs don't touch the table when you're standing (usually when you slouch forward).

    If anyone has any questions, go nuts.

    •  

      Thanks for sharing your insights sheepdog.

      The only thing I would add is that unless you have a complete electric sit/stand desk (full size tabletop) you should avoid leaning on your sit/stand desk (Varidesk, Wynston or Deskalator) at all times.

    •  

      @sheepdog what are you views on the Officeworks Professional Sit Stand Desk 890mm or its bigger 1190mm version?

      • +2 votes

        I just watched the video and had I seen that (maybe it wasn't available) at the time, I'd have probably gotten it instead of my Wynston. It looks similar to this one advertised. The lift mechanism looks good but I really really like the very wide tray (again, same as this one advertised). And unless you can't fit it, always go the biggest available. Just keep in mind that any of these standing desks will make your home office look like a proper work station - thus, ugly as all hell when you have guests.

  •  

    keen on this, but can't find where to enter the discount code?!?

  •  

    I wonder if I can place two 24" LCD screens on this. I'm happy for the screens to stick out on both sides of the desk a little bit. What do people think?

    •  

      So long at the bases of your monitors when sat next to each other don't overhang the edge, and the monitors won't connect with anything when raising or lowering it will be fine.

      You could test by putting the monitors side by side on your current desk, and measuring the width between the outer edge of each base. So long as its less than 89cm then you're in the clear.
