Discussion on: Do you have a standing desk? Which one?

I have the Ikea Bekant standing desk.

I use it 8 hours a day. It does up on Monday and goes back down on Friday night. It has up/down buttons so you cannot add preset heights, but the buttons are easy to use. There are mods available on the internet with custom prints that add preset options, but I have never tried one.

Under the desk hangs a mat which you can use to hide cables (the mat is included with the desk).

My only complaint is the finish of the tabletop. You need a mouse mat for your mouse or movement will not be that smooth.

Other than that, I can totally recommend it.

Here is a photo of the desk:
