affordable standing desk from Ikea...

If, like me, you have been interested in an adjustable standing desk but have been scared off by the insanely high prices they you can now rest easy(er) with these new affordable options from Ikea

The Bekant desk system has a number of leg and desktop options starting as low as $139 for the standard desk models. If you want the sit/stand powers desk, they range from $489 to $639. Not standard Ikea cheap, but still 1/2 to 1/3  the price of any other power adjusted models I had found to date.

I have only had mine for a day, but the assembly was pretty simple and the motor adjustment is quiet and smooth. I am glad to have the option to sit for a while and then quickly adjust to standing mode when needed. (quick note: it also has a nice mesh net under the desk to help hold and hide all the cords... be sure you leave enough slack in the main power to the unit to allow for the desk to extend to standing height)
