GeekDesk Max & v3

When it comes to the height adjustable desk branding, Geek Desk is the leader. Like numerous companies that were first to gain market share, they get comfortable and never see what’s happening in the rear view mirror.
It seems as though Geek Desk is no different. For years they were the go-to for the small and medium size corporate market as well as the consumer market. Most of the largest corporations are usually under contact with furniture manufactures like Herman Miller, Steelcase, Workrite Ergo, etc.). Over the past few years a number of middle-tier desk manufactures have introduced desks with richer feature sets, while it seems Geek Desk has just kept with the business as usually mode. It’s too bad.

The Geek Desk offers two models (Max & v3) both slow and noisier than the new norm. Both models raise & lower at 1.1” per second which is standard for the economy lines like Conset and the Vert Desk. Both desk versions offer a travel distance from 23” to 48.75” high. This is ideal for users from 5’2” to 6’3”
The Geek Desk is noisier than a number of height adjustable desks in the market. When these desks are traveling the noise level is right around 74 to 75db.

Conset Height Adjustable Desk Line Review

Conset Desk Line Review

ConSet was founded in a basement in Skjern, Denmark. Their goal was to offer an ergonomic desk that most anyone could afford.  As we look at a number of the large standing desk manufacturers we are grateful that ConSet led the competitive price revolution.  We are starting to see more quality desk lines that are aggressively priced like the S2S Desks and GeekDesks.

ConSet offers a large variety of electric height adjustable desks and bases to meet the needs of most corporations including modular frames which is ideal for worker collaboration or home office sit stand desk needs.

ConSet has a number of online retailers that you can source their complete desk line. The only issue is that it seems each of the top ergonomic resellers has renamed the desk line which can be incredibly frustrating. Our goal is to discuss each of the models, the benefits, best pricing and who carries it under which name brand name.  Pricing may change on any of the retailers’ site, the ones stated for this article we as of 6/30/2013.
