Everywhere you go these days there seems to be an advertisement for Varidesk®. So, what's our take?
The X-Stand™ team is a partnership of three friends and believe it or not, one of us is the very proud owner of a Varidesk…really. So, would we recommend it? Absolutely. Varidesk® was the first to successfully commercialize the tabletop standing desk and their success has helped bring greater awareness to the dangers of sitting and the benefits of standing.
Why do I love my Varidesk®?
It's sturdy, made in the USA, ships 100% assembled and arrives ready for use. I have the Pro Plus 36″. It sells for $395 (including shipping) and came to around $423.00 with tax. It sits on the credenza behind my desk and holds my keyboard, mouse, laptop and two full-size monitors, giving me three screens. It raises/lowers easily and works great.
With integrity, I can wholeheartedly recommend Varidesk if you use a large monitor or multiple monitors. It's still an investment, but it allows you to use your existing desk and still saves you a bundle vs. buying a whole new standing desk.
It forever changed the way I work–for the better.
So why X-Stand™?
Because we also work from our laptops a lot–and not just at the office.
Sometimes we're in our home office, the kitchen, the in-laws, onsite with a client or even at a coffee shop. It's perfect for students too. We wanted a standing desk that works where we do but could also store easily when not in use. But what we found was complexity.
Expensive, permanent desks that bound us to one workspace and bulky, intrusive, overly adjustable contraptions that had far more features that we needed. That's how X-Stand™ was born.
We sought to combine a minimalist design, sustainable materials, custom molded grippers (to protect and grip) and two of the most popular heights–because not all work surfaces (or shoes) are the same.
As your primary standing desk, a secondary one or even as a gateway to see if a standing desk is right for you, X-Stand™ will improve the way you work.
Designed and made in Charlotte, NC and Atlanta, GA, we intentionally chose to make it here in America with the best in FSC-certified, CARB II-compliant bamboo–so you can be as proud of your X-Stand™ as we are.
At only $89, X-Stand™ is the standing desk for folks who need their standing desk to work where they do. Order yours today at getxstand.com!
