When searching for the right adjustable stand up desk for your office, you need to take a four things into account. Quality, price, durability and size. We at the Bullish Bears are stock market traders and use our adjustable stand up desk for trading the markets.
We are at our trading desk for long hours. So we need to be able to sit and stand up throughout the day. It's important to be comfortable as we trade while also maintaining our health. Being able to stand while comfortably working at your stand up desk is so important to your health. Namely:
We searched far and wide for the best adjustable stand up desk that met our four needed criteria. The best part is that this desk wont break your bank account to purchase! We decided on the Crank Adjustable Sit to Standing Up Desk with Heavy Duty Steel Frame (48″, White Frame/Birch Top)
The desk comes price at the time of this blog post at only $339.00. That is a lot of desk for the price! The size was more than enough for our 34″ wide screen monitor from LG and our ASUS USB monitor with Custom USB Monitor Stand.
The box for our adjustable stand up trading desk came with plenty of protection, and was heavy! Once un-boxed, it took only 30 minutes to put together. The materials are extremely high quality. There’s a great paint finish on the frame work that should resist scratching very well.
There are 3 “wiring” port holes in the middle of the lower and upper level for your wiring to be run though. The birch top is a quality molded vainer that has resisted spills and scratching very well; I have two small children who have not managed to damage it at all!
The stand up trading desk rolls, I should say glides, effortlessly around the hardwood floor in my office. The wheels have locks that can keep it in place. These can be set or released with just your toes easily. Very handy because I don’t like crawling around on the floor to do this.
Once we loaded our desk with our day trading computer setup, we tested adjusting the desk up and down. Within about 20 seconds you can easily (my 8 year old tested it as well) lower and raise the desk to the desired height.
This desk can easily be raised to a fit a tall person (tried with a 6’2″ friend) or a shorter person (my 8 year old is about 4’5″) as well as lowered to the standard height for an office chair.
To help the desk have more freedom to move around while having all the electronics plugged in and attached to the desk, we opted to purchase a Tripp Lite 350VA UPS Battery Backup, 180W Eco Green, USB, RJ11, 6 Outlets as well as some Industrial Strength Velcro.
We attached the Velcro to the bottom of the upper layer of the desk, and attached the other end to the power supply (so your legs won’t bump into it) and connected all of our devices to the power supply, and now we have only one cord going from the desk to the wall.
The loose power lines are wrapepd using some Velcro ties so nothing but the one wire to the wall is hanging down and out of the way. This allows the desk to slide effortlessly around without running over any wires.
We use a high powered laptop on this desk setup so there is no tower to worry about. However, if you wanted to use a tower and put it on wheels, we recommend this tower caddy so that your desktop rolls around like your new desk!
We love this desk. It is quiet, durable, well made, and so simple to use. The accessories we use with it make it even more enjoyable. Here are the few accessories we recommend to add for completing your adjustable stand up desk setup.
We needed some better sound than what came out of the laptop when the lid was closed on the desk. We also needed the solution to not take up much space, so we opted for the popular Anker Bluetooth Speaker. This BT speaker packs a lot of sound into a small footprint. It looks good on the desk, is loud enough to fill sound in our 180sq ft office and has a great battery life.
To keep our laptop running cool while on the desk, we decided we needed a cooling pad that could handle the job. We went with this cooling pad and found it was very quiet; and kept our laptop CPU cold enough, even while running YouTube live, OBS, Trade-Ideas, ThinkOrSwim, and Das Trader at the same time!
Lastly, you may want to add a dual monitor arm setup to fit on your desk like we have shown in the picture above. If this is the case, and you have a widescreen monitor like we do (34″) you’ll want this dual monitor stand that is tough enough to hold a heavy widescreen monitor along with another smaller monitor.
Now you have a slick setup on your adjustable stand up desk that will last you for years to come. No more having to decide between a sit down or stand up desk, you have both! Your body (and mind) will thank you for it; because you will be taking better care of your health because of this ergonomic desk.
