20% off Ominidesk Pro 2020 Electric Standing Desk ($720 + Delivery) @ Omnidesk

100

First time post!

Checked the Omnidesk website this morning after looking around for a new desk and noticed that they've reduced their Omnidesk Pro 2020 by 20%, presumably for an EOFYs sale.

Addons for the desk are also reduced, but by varying amounts.

Omnidesk Pro is the flagship premium electric standing desk with the widest variety of customizations.

    been eyeing out one of these desks but going to wait for a better sale

  • +1 vote

    These are their standard prices on them I believe. They have them on 'permanent sale' from what I've seen, certainly it's nothing like the Black Friday sale from last year :(

    They've actually raised the prices of the Zero as well by the looks.

    Except it's still expensive AF even at 50% off…

    •  

      you pay for quality. It's quite nicely built imho. But if you're after lower cost, you can get standing desks from ikea or officeworks quite cheaply tbh.

  •  

    Bought one for my dining room. Now instead of saying lets sit down for dinner,

    For that price is it better than IKEA one? I will still wait for IKEA to get back in stock

      My (wild) guess, without having compared or read reviews on these (aside from skimming the deal post linked above), is that this will be somewhere in between Bekant and Idasen - more stable than Bekant, but probably less stable than Idasen.

      (Tabletop would definitely be better than the crappy cardboard fill on the Idasen top though!)

        Yes thats what I thought, so for Black Friday price it worth to buy, but this one is a bit overprice I think

        • +1 vote

          I think it’s fair to say that the Black Friday price was a bargain, and this price isn’t really a bargain (someone said above that this is pretty much the standard pricing).

          Is it overpriced? Well, I don’t know enough about it to make that call. Maybe it’s reasonable for standard pricing (the actual standard price, not inflated RRP!). For the money, you are getting a nicer tabletop (Idasen tabletop is cheap hollow honeycomb cardboard fill), higher weight rating (Idasen weight rating is very low), better controls (Idasen controls are limited, and requires an app for presets), and customisation - so maybe it’s a fair price?

          FWIW, check out the ranking and reviews of standing desks at the following website:
          https://www.btod.com/blog/best-standing-desk

          This Omnidesk appears to be a Jiecang OEM desk - closest on the list would be the Fully Jarvis (from the look of the legs). My guess is that the Omnidesk would be similar to that at best (but just as likely to be a lower quality version). The Fully Jarvis is rated 78/100, which is actually pretty good (higher than the Idasen at 72/100). BUT, note that the Idasen beats the Jarvis in every category except weight limit and speed (in both categories the Idasen is abysmal!). More importantly, the Idasen has a very high stability rating of 8.8, compared to the average 6.6 for the Jarvis. Also note that most of the negatives about the Idasen relate to the weight rating, speed, quirky controls (all stuff that might be manageable), and it’s crappy tabletop and higher costs (although in this case it’s actually cheaper than the Omnidesk!).

          So if you need more weight than the Idasen’s paltry 70kg, the Omnidesk may be a good alternative. But if you are fine with the low weight rating, and don’t mind the slow speed / control quirks, then the Idasen would surely be the better buy! (Maybe just consider switching the crappy cardboard tabletop out for something solid - but note that the weight differential will eat into your 70kg, as the change in tabletop weight needs to be accounted for!).

          Just my 2c (noting I have no experience with the Omnidesk, and haven’t done any research on it!).

    I have one. Its very good, would recommend.

    I've been watching these for at least a year and sad I didn't jump when black friday deal per above.
    I can't value them more than that price point from the black friday deal, there's so many other options on there for far less than their current pricing.

    I'm still hard pressed on descision for straight or curve option.

    Im pretty sure that these are the same frames just cheaper.

    EDIT: Not exact same but pretty much the same. Small difference in the frame at the ends but thats about it. Load capacity is the same.

    • +1 vote

      These ones you posted are single motor with a rod which connect to the other side. The Omnidesk ones are dual motors (one in each leg).

    •  

      One difference is kinda important for some, as the Zen One desk is not suitable for those under 170cm, whereas this desk seems to have more range in height

  •  

    I got this last year on sale. Love it. Grabbed the small 48 inch top as I don’t have the space at the moment but I’ll be chucking on an ikea wooden bench top when I want a bigger desk. Worth the money for me at least.

  •  

    I got one of these in the black friday deal (48" straight edge, white) and I'm pretty happy with the desk, albeit with a few caveats.

    You pretty much buy an Omnidesk because they advertise it as being customisable with heaps of options - but the Australian store never has anything in stock. So it's really just the same as any other standing desk…

    A few months after I bought mine, Kogan was selling a similar desk (Ergoluxe?) TWO for the price of ONE of what I paid for the Omnidesk on special. After owning the Omnidesk and not being able to get any accessories, I can tell you I'd have been just as happy with the Kogan one, and even more happy being in a position to gift one to my dad, etc.

    However, at the end of the day, it's sturdy, good quality and looks nice, so I don't regret buying my Omnidesk. Plus, I just checked the Kogan website and I cant even find anything comparable anymore. So I think if you dont already have a standing desk then you might have missed the boat completely for all the good deals (probably because of COVID). A 20% off deal now might not be so bad in the end.

    @ChiMot: Just heard back, they'll be having the sale from the 15th on the Pro model. It'll be 20% off so starting at $720. I've asked if extras will be included in the sale too :)

    i was seriously considering, but:
    now looking at the black Friday sale $399 (they already made profit) and now $720, i lost interest in buying from them.
    yes i know probably some costs are increase but not sure it is over $300.
    or maybe they jack the prices due to covid and WFH thing?

  •  

    Was waiting for this deal to start for the past week. Am a bit disappointed that it was only 20% off & that they didn't do a bundle deal including the cable management tray or anything.

    This desk was already $100 off before this sale started & the discount on the accessories appears to be the same as before the sale started. Really disappointed :(
    I'm still buying one though!

    I convinced myself to not get a cheapo one after reading about the differences in quality (eg. electronics, gears, glides, tolerances, etc). I started to look at mid range cheap ones & ended up deciding to spend a little more for a higher end desk. Mind you, I have back problems that have been causing me grief the past few weeks, so I'm more willing to throw money at something to fix it!

    •  

      have you compared with similar model at zenspacedesk? if you join their mailing list you get $100 off

      •  

        Looks like pretty good value for a comparable product!
        Unfortunately they are sold out of what I'm after & out of laziness I was going to include monitor arms & cable management, but the arms are also sold out (& expensive!), but that's not really important as i'd be paying for the convenience.
        Also, Thanks for contributing last week in finding out about this deal!

    Just a heads up, I ordered one of these back during the Black Friday sales. It ended up taking around 2 months to arrive, despite the delivery timeframe estimate displayed at purchase and in the confirmation email showing 5-9 days. I received no contact, updates, or apologies from OmniDesk until I got in contact two weeks later asking for info, and then I was told it would be delivered within 3 weeks of the purchase. This was intended to be a Christmas present, so I was reassured when their delayed timeline still had it arriving around Christmas. It was finally delivered in mid/late January…

    I'm super tolerant of delays, especially when buying during a sale, but the complete lack of communication and the failure to meet their provided timeframes left a bad taste in my mouth. Just a word of caution for others.

    Regarding the desk itself, it's decent quality, though I've had it fault several times.

    •  

      Keep in mind this is the 2020 model.
      Am curious to see how it compares in the long run as far as faults & stuff go.

    • +1 vote

      Yep. About more than 2 months for me too, but after a lot of patience and struggle with TNT I've finally got it.

      I've chipped it when I dropped my watch once. Can't really fault the quality.

    •  

      I bought a desk during the Black Friday sales as well and it was delivered by the 6th of December. The company’s communication was pretty good with my order. It could have been possible they were inundated with orders. Still, they should have handled your order better.

  •  

    I wouldn't mind a legs only special, so i can buy my own desk surface.

  •  

    I've been using an XL-sized omni desk since last year. Very good quality, sleek and sturdy, would recommend this desk.

  •  

    I purchased one of these for WFH in March this year. Great desk. Extremely sturdy and good quality. I bought might with the bamboo curved edge table top. Be aware that on one of their FB posts, they mention that they won’t be replicating the Black Friday sales again as it was ‘insane’. I take that to mean we won’t be seeing the 50% sales in the near future.

    •  

      yeah probably "it was insanely small profit, so now lets increase by $300 and call it sale"

    •  

      What are your thoughts on the curved option you went with?

      • +1 vote

        I prefer the aesthetics of the curved option but to be honest, I don't see it being much different to the straight edge desk top (just lose a bit of space of course). If you have a very large monitor, I would go with the straight edge as you don't want to sit too close to it.

  •  

    I won't hold anyone to this, but what do you think are the chances of this being cheaper in the next 6-12 months. I'm looking at getting one in the near future and would rather pay a bit more, but not too much more to get one sooner.

    •  

      i have an idea, that some manufacturer saw this pandemic and increase the production expecting high demand, but then when all brands do the same supply will not taking them all up so in the next few months they will have to do clearance (warehouse cost is high this is bulky items)

  •  

    Hmm, delivery is $100 to metro area. That brings a 150cm desk to $920.

    •  

      huh thanks now im 101% certain will not supporting them. too much profit goes to their pocket

  •  

    The 20% discount does not apply on any customisations or addons. So you're getting 20% off only if you get the basic/smallest sized desk with nothing else. If you want to have a larger desk you need to pay the extra at full price.

    In this case it should be marketed as a $180 discount off their desks, not a 20%.

    •  

      you think so? but it is SUPER big. some people just don't have the space or dont want that kind of size.
      if 500ish I'll give it a try

      Width : 180 / 150
      Depth : 107 / 60
      Height : From 62 cms to 126 cms
