Our tester loved the VariDesk converter as a bang-for-buck solution when working from home. If you’re looking to turn any old table into a standing desk without any assembly time—and without breaking the bank—this delivers 11 height settings as well as space for all your PC accessories.

Just keep in mind that the keyboard tray extends as you raise the height, so you’ll want to have plenty of room behind you.

Pros

  • No assembly required

  • 11 height settings

Cons

  • Requires a standalone keyboard

  • Lack of standing space

The Mr. Ironstone is a simple desk with few bells and whistles, but its cozy shape and deep work surface make it perfect for those long sessions at a laptop, doing homework, or handling documents. We spent about a week testing this one, and it hurt to have to give it up.

It has a convenient metal cupholder, a headphone hook, and a smooth gradient along the front edge for uniquely superior comfort.

Pros

  • Exceptionally comfortable

  • Clean, spacious surface

  • Easy to assemble

Cons

  • Not super adjustable

Fully Jarvis Bamboo Standing Desk

This all-in-one motorized standing desk doesn’t offer much in the way of accessories, but it performed well in our lab tests—and it looks pretty great, too. You’ll have to put this one together, but we found the instructions easy to follow, and it’s worth the effort if you need a dedicated standing desk.

Pros

  • Straightforward assembly

  • Sturdy construction

  • Appealing design

Cons

  • Fewer accessories available

Motpk 51" L Shaped Desk

This L-shaped gaming desk is one of our favorites for a number of reasons—tasteful looks, efficient design with plenty of surface area, easy assembly. The carbon-fiber aesthetic won’t be for everyone, but it’s a quality piece of furniture that doesn’t take up a ton of space. The only concern we might have is limited legroom for taller-than-average folks.

If you like to work sitting down with a PC in one area and paperwork in another, this popular desk should satisfy your needs.

Pros

  • Tasteful carbon-fiber look

  • Straightforward assembly

  • Space efficient

Cons

  • Limited legroom

ApexDesk Elite Series 60" Electric Height Adjustable Standing Desk

The ApexDesk Elite Series is spacious, adjustable, and comes with a user-friendly programmable remote. Our tester found it a total pain to put together, but—once you get it assembled and situated—it makes a great upgrade for your home office.

The desk is very heavy, but it’s also built to last. And the user reviews on Amazon are overwhelmingly positive.

Pros

  • Programmable LED controller

  • Fairly spacious

Cons

  • Confusing instructions

  • Difficult to assemble

  • Lackluster design
