UPLIFT Desk Reviews

In 2002 UPLIFT Desk was founded with a simple mission: create a Standing Desk you'd use every day to work better and live healthier. We wanted to share the benefits of an ergonomic workspace with as many people as possible. That was years ago, and we've grown quite a bit since then.

We've gotten amazing feedback and great stories in return. We've seen how improving office ergonomics can have an incredibly positive effect on peoples' health, comfort, and productivity.

Best Standing Desk Wirecutter

"After reevaluating our top picks and spending nearly three months testing four of the top standing desks, we’ve determined that the Uplift V2 is the best standing desk for most people. It accommodates a wide range of heights, it’s stable at even its tallest setting, and it features a greater variety of attractive customization options than you’ll find on any competitor."

"The Uplift V2-Commercial Standing Desk offers the best mix of performance and features of the desks we tested. It responds quickly to input from your choice of three control keypads and produces minimal wobble even at tall heights thanks to the frame's crossbar and thick legs. The company also has four frame colors to choose from and multiple add-on accessories, so you can truly make this desk your own."

"The Uplift V2 Standing Desk is nearly as stable as its sibling, the Uplift V2-Commercial, and a little cheaper. If you're taller than 6-foot-6, it'll accommodate you better, too. Its range starts about 3 inches higher and tops out at about 2 inches higher."

Uplift V2 Desk - Best overall standing desk

"Uplift V2 is one of the best standing desks that benefits from top-notch build quality, and prides itself on stability. Uplift is nicely stable, though, thanks to built-in stability braces.
If there's any testament you need to the stability of this unit, it's being able to sleep in a hammock under it!"

"As MMORPG's Hardware Editor, I've had the privilege of becoming familiar with lots of different gear ... so when I tell you that UPLIFT Desks are like the sports cars of the standing desk world, you know that I have the experience to make that claim ... Compared directly with my cheaper $399 standing desk, [the UPLIFT V2 Standing Desk is] an entirely different class of product. If you don't need [a hardwood desktop], you can still get the excellent frame and a good laminate alternative, but as a piece of furniture meant to last, the UPLIFT Desk V2 Solid Wood [Standing Desk] is simply phenomenal."

"Upgrading to a standing desk has been the most dramatic change for my office arrangement. I've been standing-desk-curious before, but it was the search for a more comfortable chair that actually pushed me to sit less and stand more. My colleague recommended seating from UPLIFT, which makes ergonomic chairs at reasonably affordable prices... Give UPLIFT a look if you're standing-desk-curious or in the market for an affordable ergonomic office makeover."

Watch some of our customers share their thoughts on their UPLIFT Desks.

I couldn't be happier with the quality of the desk, the excellent customer service, very quick shipping, and the "wow" factor of the entire transaction. When you order, you start with the basic desk and customize it to your liking... The desk works beautifully, looks smart, and I really dig the accessories that were sent along with the desk....

Highly recommend this company and the desk. It's one of the best purchasing experiences I've had in a while.

For my job I can spend up to 10 hours stuck sitting at my desk. Not fun for my back or legs. I have been researching for some time to find the "right" sit/stand desk. I love the UpLift desk! The whole experience was a great from beginning to end. The website is super easy to navigate. Picking the desk with all the accessories was a snap. The hardest part for me was picking the type of desktop I wanted. I really like how the ordering process shows what the desk will look like. I chose the bamboo curve, 60" by 30". It is smooth, solid, and beautiful. The workmanship shows they take pride in their product. I am very pleased. The assembly was a breeze, especially with the helpful step by step videos provided on their website. The cpu holder fits perfectly, definitely recommend the track spacer. The keyboard holder, with it's very convenient height and angle adjustments, is the best one I have ever used. Again, recommend the track spacer. I also highly recommend the advanced digital memory. I almost didn't get it because I am the only one using the desk. But in the end, I decided I am already making an investment, might as well add this convenience to it. So worth it... I am 100% pleased. I literally have nothing negative to say about this desk. It's not often that I have found a company with a product that I have been 100% satisfied with, so I am happily spreading the word.

I LOVE my standing desk! The Uplift system was easy to install and is simple to use. It is versatile and allows me to move from a sitting to standing position quickly and effortlessly. I wanted to make my own table top, so I simply bought the legs and stool. The components are well made and sturdy. There is no rock or wiggle in my table. I am VERY HAPPY with the outcome.

Parker Wells

My desk is an amazing product. No, I don't work for the company and did lots of research and price comparisons before I purchased. Ordering was very easy, product was easy to track in the shipping process, construction was a breeze with easy to follow instructions and the quality of the components has been fantastic.

Really can't say enough. If I needed another one I would order immediately.

Thanks for a great desk.

MJ Stenson

This is the sit/stand desk you need! Fantastic product, well made and constructed with attention to details. Plus the service I have received from Sami Jo and the rest of the team has been great. Questions answered immediately.... Highly recommended!
