Balt 85052 Web A/V Stand-Up Workstation, A good multipurpose cart

I’m applying this table close to 50 % year. Can not say it is really bad but it has a person significant worry if you maintain it in standing mode – it’s not stable enough and keeps relocating in left-right path just after just about every contact. Other than that it is not lousy. To make it much more steady you can place it in the corner then you should be high-quality with it.

As an workplace supervisor, i have discovered these adjustable stations to be the most multipurpose parts for a substantial business office. They can be moved from room to house as desired, healthy properly in smaller sized cubicles, and the top modify-potential can make them invaluable. As additional employees develop into intrigued in standing stations, these stands also make it attainable to go from sitting to standing and back again with out any concerns.

I concur with most issues bo stated in their evaluation, specifically with the suggestions on having wing nuts and drilling additional holes for lowering the degree of the platforms. If you do, the stand would make a wonderful floating pc desk. The facet rack for a console computer may be a bit retro, but if you transpire to have your have neighborhood server, this may perhaps be the position for it. I counsel it might take a particular person additional than 15 minutes to assemble, in particular if they don’t have a ton of ‘ikea’ assembly expertise. I’ve carried out dozens of furnishings assemblies in my time, but i’m obtaining gradual. Be certain you have about an hour and lots of space and light-weight. As opposed to lots of assemblies, there were being no seriously uncomfortable moments, when you experienced to harmony a shelf among two uprights, with almost nothing to aid them. One merchandise came shut, but no problems. Anything is pretty sturdy there is no threat of high priced gear currently being very easily knocked over. I would add one more addition, a mixture surge protector / extention chord / change to the underside of the higher shelf, which is relatively large wooden, and ought to choose wood screws really nicely.

Comments from buyers

“A good multipurpose cart, Really good if you’re concerned about ergonomics, Works as Advertised”

I acquired this workstation just after having a new (desk) occupation and noticing that sitting down for approximately 10 hours a day is really tricky on the again. I figured it would be a fantastic investment decision, even if i alter work opportunities in the upcoming. I am about 5′ 5′ tall and this workstation can be altered large ample so that i am at eye degree with the computer system display screen and not straining my neck. I’ve attempted podiums and they do not achieve large ample to stay clear of neck strain. There are a few downsides to this workstation even though, but it is dependent on your private do the job behavior. For me, i really don’t mind that i cannot adjust the desk all through the day. I would relatively have it lifted and use a drafting chair to alternately sit and stand devoid of acquiring to raise and lower the desk. The most significant disadvantage, in my impression, is that the genuine floor region is way too small for anyone that has a great sum of work to do. It tends to get alternatively crowded and i stress about matters falling off. Then yet again, it truly is tricky to uncover an ergonomic workstation at a first rate price tag which is any bigger than this.

I have been using the workstation considering that xmas. I required to get off my toes and enable the heart a minor. Getting sedantary all at get the job done is not good. Heels and lower back ache a tiny but it is really not as bad as the 1st couple weeks. I suggest utilizing a 3/4′ mat. This may possibly be a lot more severe than most but i am typing now for the past two hrs with no ill impacts. I assume improved standing up somewhat than sitting down. Could be a scissor-change minimize-off put in when i was born.

I purchased this for perform and it features exactly as described. And it is offered at a very good value way too.

I ordered this about a month back. It took about 15 minutes to put collectively. I did do some modifications after reading through a handful of evaluations. I purchased four clamp bolts (bolts with black plastic knobs) with wing nuts and washers. When i inserted the top into the bottom, i utilised these clamp bolts to bolt it togther somewhat than the smaller bolts and nuts furnished. This can make for a lot easier raising and decreasing of the top. I also, drilled two extra holes in each side (may well mess up warranty but i did not care) at the table’s least expensive amount (wish balt experienced this finished at the manufacturing facility). This way, when it is lowered i can spot the bolt clamps in the aspect (did not need to, it is genuinely stable even with out the bolts–but it gave me a position to continue to keep the clamp bolts). With the significant wheels it rolls very very easily it is pretty stable and does what i want it to do.

Performs nicely, and simple to place with each other, very well manufactured, just like advertisement mentioned, i would acquire again. They even send out the tools with it.

    I’m using this table around half year. Can’t say it’s bad but it has one big concern if you keep it in standing mode – it’s not stable enough and keeps moving in left-right direction after each touch. Other than that it’s not bad. To make it more steady you can put it in the corner then you should be fine with it.

    As an office manager, i have found these adjustable stations to be the most versatile pieces for a large office. They can be moved from space to space as needed, fit nicely in smaller cubicles, and the height adjust-ability makes them invaluable. As more staff become interested in standing stations, these stands also make it possible to go from sitting to standing and back without any issues.

        I’ve been using the workstation since christmas. I wanted to get off my feet and help the heart a little. Being sedantary all at work is not good. Heels and lower back ache a little but it’s not as bad as the first couple weeks. I recommend using a 3/4″ mat. This may be more extreme than most but i’m typing now for the past two hours with no ill affects. I think better standing up rather than sitting. Could be a scissor-switch cut-off installed when i was born.

    I agree with most things bo said in their review, especially with the suggestions on getting wing nuts and drilling additional holes for lowering the level of the platforms. If you do, the stand would make a superb floating pc desk. The side rack for a console pc may be a bit retro, but if you happen to have your own local server, this may be the place for it. I suggest it may take a person more than 15 minutes to assemble, especially if they don’t have a lot of “ikea” assembly experience. I’ve done dozens of furniture assemblies in my time, but i’m getting slow. Be sure you have about an hour and plenty of room and light. Unlike many assemblies, there were no really awkward moments, when you had to balance a shelf between two uprights, with nothing to support them. One item came close, but no worries. Everything is very sturdy there is no danger of expensive equipment being easily knocked over. I would add another addition, a combination surge protector / extention chord / switch to the underside of the upper shelf, which is fairly heavy wood, and should take wood screws quite nicely.

    I got this workstation after getting a new (desk) job and realizing that sitting for nearly 10 hours a day is pretty tough on the back. I figured it would be a good investment, even if i change jobs in the future. I am about 5′ 5″ tall and this workstation can be adjusted high enough so that i am at eye level with the computer screen and not straining my neck. I’ve tried podiums and they do not reach high enough to avoid neck strain. There are a few drawbacks to this workstation though, but it depends on your personal work habits. For me, i don’t mind that i can’t adjust the desk throughout the day. I would rather have it raised and use a drafting chair to alternately sit and stand without having to raise and lower the desk. The biggest drawback, in my opinion, is that the actual surface area is too small for anyone that has a good amount of work to do. It tends to get rather crowded and i worry about things falling off. Then again, it’s tough to find an ergonomic workstation at a decent price that’s any larger than this.

I also, drilled two extra holes in each side (may mess up warranty but i didn’t care) at the table’s lowest level (wish balt had this done at the factory). This way, when it is lowered i can place the bolt clamps in the side (didn’t need to, it is really stable even without the bolts–but it gave me a place to keep the clamp bolts). With the large wheels it rolls very easily; it is very stable; and does what i want it to do.
