Stand and Deliver: Smart Desk 2 from Autonomous

Stand and Deliver: Smart Desk 2 from Autonomous

I'm always looking for ways to be proactive about my health, and I knew that the hours I was sitting during the day were taking a toll on my body. For the past few years I'd been eyeing standing desks, and towards the end of last year I made the decision to move forward on a purchase. As with most things that I buy, I did quite a bit of research in the attempt to find the right one.

After talking with several artists that had been using a standing desk and countless hours reading reviews, I ordered the Smart Desk 2 from Autonomous. Now that I've been using the desk for the last few months I wanted to share my experience.

 

Placing the Order:

I placed the order on the Autonomous site and the whole process took only a few minutes. There were a few options to choose from and I decided to go with the Business Edition that has the dual motor and a 5-year warranty. I passed on the Accessory Kit and AI Box options, and not being in New York or LA, an assembly service wasn’t an option.

Assembly:

Anyone who knows me is aware of just how much I avoid assembling…. well… anything. I don't enjoy the process of assembling things unless we're talking about LEGOS, and then I'm all over it. When the desk arrived, I called my friend and scheduled for him to swing by later in the day to help assemble the desk. I was so excited to try the desk out that I couldn’t wait and started the assembly myself. I was quite surprised with just how easy it was to assemble.

I had zero issues, unlike my attempts in the past with IKEA furniture, and had the desk completed in around 45 minutes.

Notable Features:

My favorite feature of the desk is the Smart Keypad. The keypad remembers up to 4 sitting and standing heights, and although I currently only take advantage of 2 of them, it's nice knowing that I have a couple more to spare.  Being able to simply press a button and the desk changes to the desired position is fantastic.

I also appreciate how quiet the dual motors are when the desk is in motion. I can continue to have a conversation without the need to raise my voice during the transition.

 

Conclusion:

I've been using the desk now for a few months and I couldn’t be happier with my purchase. If you're looking for an affordable way to avoid sitting for hours on end and want a reliable solution, I strongly recommend considering the Smart Desk 2. My only real regret is not getting one sooner.
