Allow me to introduce an intelligantly designed quick-adjustable desk by GeekDesk.
The model I am showing you here today is called the GeekDesk Max. The GeekDesk Max is designed for those needing extra heavy-duty lifting capacity. This bad boy has a lifting capacity of a whopping 335lbs (without the top).
Huge Adjustable Height Computer Desk
I consider myself a heavy computer power-user and love having dual screens. I have also been known to connect 3 or 4 monitors up to the same computer back when I did a lot of live video streaming. So when I started thinking about a sit-stand desk, I was worried that I wouldn’t have enough space on a desk for multiple monitors, keyboard, mouse, notepad and misc stuff.
A friend at work mentioned GeekDesk. I have to admit, I haven’t heard of GeekDesk until then, but glad I did. This has to be one of the most awesome adjustable desks out there. To be able to throw pretty much anything you can imagine on this desk and easily have it go up or down for a sit or stand position is awesome.
Another cool feature
4 programmable buttons for different heights.
Maybe the whole family is using this desk. Chances are, everyone is a different height. So to conform to an ergonomic position for all family members, just program a button for your height and let the magic happen.
Wait, there’s more
Perhaps you would like to make your own custom top. No problem… just mount it to the two legs and the cross-beam and you are good to go! You might be able to purchase the desk without the top if you wanted to build your own custom computer desk top for it, but this you will want to confirm with GeekDesk.
If you do decide to use the top from GeekDesk, it already comes with 3 holes in the back of the top with the grommets included.
To top it off, they also built in a nice area to run all of your cables under the desk.
Now… on to some of the specs

The assembly was very simple and straight forward. If you noticed the bottom-left corner of the video posted above I showed a time-lapsed version of the assembly. Some parts were cut out to make it fit within the video time, but the instructions were straight forward and the hardware bags were clearly labeled. By the way, it was really nice to have the hardware bags labeled and matched the instructions. This makes the assembly go by so much faster while not stressing you out.
If you are unable to assemble the unit for whatever reason, GeekDesk can connect you with a third-party assembly service that can assemble your GeekDesk on-site for $95… that’s quality customer service right there in my book.
Even though I haven’t fully been able to test this desk out because of my current circumstance (remodeling my home to sell then purchase another new home), I truly like this sit-stand desk. At first sight it seems a bit pricey but if you really look at the long-term investment of your health when it comes to ergonomics, you are investing in yourself and your health.
If I were to change anything at all it would be the speed it goes up and down. With that said though, I don’t see it as a big issue since I don’t see myself having to switch from sit to stand many times during the day. As I get older I am also realizing that I need to slow things down a bit and not feel so rushed…. this gives me a way to walk away for a tiny bit, take a breathe, and gather my thoughts… so I kind of look at the speed issue as being there for a reason. Call me weird I guess.
Anyways, I rambled on long enough… what do you think of the GeekDesk Max? (Leave your comments below!)
