    legs looks pretty flimsy though.

      I bought this a few months ago and can confirm that it's actually very sturdy. Once a table top is installed then it's perfectly fine. Apart from smashing your knees into the middle section if it's too low

      •  

        Can I ask what size table top do you have and what do you have on the desk? I'm planning to have my desktop PC on it and probably 2m wooden table top on it.

          I went to Bunnings and made my top custom. Mine is currently 1.7m long by 0.75m deep. I have my PC on the table with 2x 27 inch Dell Monitors. Not light but the table is more than capable of it. 2m seems totally okay, just with 10cm overhang on either side

            @tempestswitch: sounds good. thanks. do you know how this 10% off pickup works?

            •  

              @LennyT: Not too sure sorry. Maybe flick them a message on eBay and they might organise something

          •  

            @tempestswitch: May I know how much did the table top cost you? And which one did you go with? Thanks.

            •  

              @Ch Rs: Table top only cost me around $100. I didn't get a premade one. I bought a few planks of wood and jigsaw-ed and glued it up together

          •  

            @tempestswitch: What did you use for the table top?

            •  

              @diazepam: I did something similar, only with the Ikea version. Pick up pine to approx measurement and use router to get the edge finish/shape you're after (round /bevel edge etc). Then several coats of heavy duty paint and wet sand back for ultra smooth finish. Mine has been going strong for over 5 years now (I use a mouse mat as well fyi but the paint is durable enough). Desk is over 2m length, which is really hard to find off the shelf and would do it again next time I need another desk.

              FYI, I'm not very hardware inclined so anyone can do this however router should be used with care.

                @fluberries: The easier version of this is to buy the board, do a single cut to make it the length you want (the width is already ok with panels at bunnings/ikea), sand the sharp edges, and coat with wood oil (make sure you get an oil specificially as opposed to a stain. Stains are awful imo).

                •  

                  @gakko: Agreed, if you want a small desk, Bunnings do some nice SpecRite 1200x600 18mm panels for $40-$50, they just need a sand & oil.

    how does the 10% local pick up discount work?

  •  

    Plus3P doesnt work for me (maybe i used it), but regardless, good price.

  •  

    How many motors does this have ?

    •  

      two

      •  

        Tempting. I thought two motors generally hold up to 120kg though?

        •  

          No idea. probably smaller motors.

      •  

        The full description pictures show a dual motor, yet half the pics attached to the ad show a single motor (in white), so who knows what you'd get… hopefully the dual!

    6mths warranty - that’s great confidence in standing by their product’s quality (Not!).

  • +3 votes

    Only 6 months warranty? Don't they stand behind their product?

    • +5 votes

      Sometimes warranty isn’t so much standing behind the product so much as it is factoring in the head ache of dealing with warranty claims relative to the margin originally made. In reality these guys are probably making $20-30 per sale and just don’t want to see eBay clients in 2 years time complaining that one of the motors sounds slightly noisier than the other one. If this product was $200 more but had a 3 year warranty, would it make people more comfortable - yes, but would they buy it - probably no.

    • +2 votes

      I'm not a lawyer, but I don't think their warranty terms would survive. 12 months is very short for a desk.

      A company's warranty is in addition to, not instead of, the Australian Consumer Law. (Read about the distinction in the LG case - basically, LG was obliged to refund/repair under ACL.) Arguing that consumers would pay $250 for a desk stand only expecting it to last a year seems very optimistic on the part of the retailer!

      “Don't they stand behind their product?”

      These desks are for you to stand in front of, it’d be creepy if they stood behind it.

    Nice find OP.

    Grey model here for the @239.99 without code (could use code on top of possibly?)

  •  

    Thanks OP! Just bought 2 grey units! Not sure how the extra 10% off works picking up though!

  •  

    6 month warranty stinks, and perhaps consumers have statutory rights that would extend longer than that:

    I bought one last week. They will refund the 10% difference if purchased online and going to pickup. I just went into the Notting Hill office and sorted it all out then went to Dandenong South to pick up. Easy process. Very happy with the frame. I used an IKEA Bekant top.

    •  

      do you have to go to notting hill office before picking up ?

  •  

    Anyone else having trouble getting the code to work (and yes just signed up for ebay plus!)?

    would love one of these just a touch narrower to fit a 900mm wide space :/ noone seems to make them though

    •  

      You can get custom narrow desks that are 900mm, but they’re very expensive ($800ish)

      Any narrower and I think there’s be stability issues

    Just received mine - works great, way sturdier build than i was expecting for the price, very similar to the ones at our office. Screwed into my Ikea hilver table top easily.
    Motors are rather quiet and smooth, seems to handle a dual monitor setup with a few laptops and docks etc great.

    •  

      Got mine too this arvo its pretty good, its pretty heavy and not wobbly at all like my old officeworks legs. Got a 1200x600 desk top and a dual 27" itx pc on it.

    •  

      Just outstanding interest, what were the packaged Dimensions like for pickup

      •  

        outstanding out of interest.

      •  

        its a single long box for the desk base, which is maybe 40x40x120cm or so?
