Vari Electric Standing Desk Review – 1 Year Later

It’s been over a year since I purchased the Vari Electric Standing Desk and I’d like to share an update.

First and foremost, this desk has made a huge improvement in my overall health and wellbeing. The constant back pain I used to have is pretty much gone.

Any time I get uncomfortable, I just change positions. (Right now I am standing to write this post after having been sitting for an hour.)

Avoiding discomfort makes me happier and more motivated to work. I only wish I had invested in a desk like this years ago. I know a desk isn’t as fun as a new computer or other gear, but in retrospect, the desk should have taken priority over a lot of other gear I bought that I don’t even use now.

My only regrets are that I wish I had purchased the wider version. I have a lot of gear on the 48″ version and it feel a bit crowded. I do think the 48″ version fits better in the small space I have though.

It’s a minor gripe, but I would have preferred a desk with an automatic lift. I have to hold the button down to move the desk up or down.

Do yourself a favor and get a standing desk like this. This is the Vari Electric Standing Desk, but there are dozens of other manufacturers who make essentially the same thing. I can’t speak for the quality of those brands, but I’m happy with my purchase from Varidesk.
