    That's a lot of money for a desk
    Pretty basic looking too
    Though expect it's sturdy to be fair
    But for 500 quid I would expect drawers etc

    You don’t tend to get draws on a sit/stand desk. Those are the motorised ones which move up and down. £500 for a sit stand desk is low-mod range.


    What about this? They sell in the EU iirc.

    I have that Ikea one at work. It's decent enough, and the motion is smooth enough. Not really sure what a more expensive one would offer beyond looks.

    Thanks
    Yeah I misunderstood I think
    I was thinking it was a stand or sit option
    But appears it may be interchangeable
    As required?
    Ie it can go to either even when in use?
    Hydraulic rams on the cheaper models?

    Yes - they have electronic controls and can be changed at the whim of the person using it. There not hydraulic, they use electric actuators to move.

    Thanks
    That explains why I thought it was expensive
    I was picturing you chose either sit or stand but couldn't easily alter it afterwards
    Except the electric ones obviously
