Lifehacker Names UpLift 900 as One of ‘Five Best Standing Desks’

Lifehacker recently posed the question in an article that asked its blog readers a simple question: What is the best standing desk? What a great question to ask, with a market full of options that range in affordability and features from full electric sit-to-stand desks, pneumatic standing desks, to standing workstations intended to sit on top of an existing fixed-height desk. Lifehacker took reader nominations on the desks and we were happy to see the UpLift 900 Sit-Stand Ergonomic Desk (Frame) nominated as one of the top choices.

Well, the fun didn’t stop there. Lifehacker then took the five best standing desk nominations and put them to a vote. The UpLift 900 was a popular choice, gaining the most votes for an actual standing desk, behind the DIY and a conversion unit. Check out the results of the best standing desk poll in the image above.

Lifehacker is known for providing readers with life hacks, or productivity tips or tricks – basically, any interesting or non-obvious way to solve a problem or save time. It’s no surprise that the DIY desk would take top honors, considering the basis of Lifehacker. That same DIY, or hack, principal was still popular and evident in the rest of the voting as well though. The UpLift 900 standing desk frame only finished neck-and-neck with a conversion unit designed to turn a traditional or fixed height desk into a desk with standing capabilities.

All of the top standing desks that were included in this reader poll are great options to encourage movement and combat against an inactive, sedentary workday, but if you want to hear it straight from the horse’s mouth, the Lifehacker review of the UpLift 900 height-adjustable standing desk reads as follow:


The UpLift 900 “stands” out in my opinion, not only because of the low price point, but also because of its versatility. Buying just the frame only essentially makes this option a DIY standing desk. You can save money by using a pre-existing desktop, you can purchase your own top or you can make one!

We have countless customers that order adjustable-height desk bases only and tells us their plans on procuring or constructing their own desktop, whether it is from reclaimed beach wood, woods local to their geographical area or even just using an antique wooden door. The UpLift 900 has a 335 lb lifting capacity, so the possibilities are endless. You can really build your dream desk from scratch and feel secure that your desk essentially has your best interests in mind, being ergonomic, encouraging movement as well as your overall well-being.
