One thing to look for in a quality standing desk is a solid and reliable lifting mechanism that will be able to handle the weight of your gear without any strain or wobble.
If you're considering a BDI standing desk, our lift mechanisms underwent an extensive 20,000 cycle test under a 220-pound load to ensure that they are built to last and will reliably—and smoothly—elevate your gaming setup for many years to come.
When setting up a gaming system on a standing desk, it's also important to remember that cables running to the monitor, CPU, and other devices could come unplugged—or worse, topple over—when the desk is raised if the cords are not long enough to reach the increased height. We recommend mounting a power strip beneath the desktop to ensure that your connections always maintain a consistent length to a power supply. Also, depending on your CPU and desk size, you could install a harness or cradle to the legs of the desk so that your system will rise and descend with the desk.
