End of financial year sale. 15% off with a spacious top. Discount shows in cart.
40kg weight capacity
Depends on one’s use case… might not be enough for some. Ikea one has 50kg capacity but it is more expensive and possibly better quality.
jeez i'm mean… if you only have a laptop, lcd, kbd mouse and 2.0 spks.
also wasnt there some electric ones for admittedly $100 more?
hand crank is so 1915
had a similar one. didnt last too long. wouldnt recommend. ikea has a proper sit stand desk thats reasonably priced
Skarsta for $250?
There's two i think. Haven't tried it but looks decent
I have the Skarsta. It's not bad for the price. The two you may be referring to might be either the bigger size desk or the two different colours the desk top comes in (white or beige). Don't be tricked by the photo on IKEA like I was - I thought the beige colour was a nice, light brown wood colour, but it's actually more of a grey colour.
I have to caution you though, the desk top itself isn't as good quality as I would have liked. It's got a honeycomb internal structure (re: paper and hollow), so you can't put anything too heavy on it without it sagging or putting a depression in it. I mounted the popular NB gas monitor arm on it along with my Xiaomi 34" and there's a slightly noticeable sag where the gas monitor clamp rests against the desk on one side. It's not super noticeable, but I can feel a slight depression on the table where the clamp is. The desk itself still holds up my monitor fine, but it just shows these hollow honeycomb desks aren't the best when it comes to holding heavy things.
If I could do it again, I'd probably buy the IKEA stand (it's actually pretty good quality, and goes down to 70cm at the lowest setting) and get a piece of wood from say bunnings and cut it to size there. Note that the IKEA stand is a little wide so check to make sure the wood plank can fit. Last time I checked, the usual acacia panels bunnings offers was too narrow for this desk (60cm vs 80cm).
@Fotato: Thanks for the info. I guess they are built for laptops.
