I have been using the ErgoEdge AmpDesk Standing Desk since June 2018, before all the COVID-19 and Work From Home (WFH) events. COVID-19 came in January 2020 and accelerated WFH. So when people WFH, they need a proper environment to work from home. And if they do have that, they will need a good work desk.
So that started a sudden surge in people buying standing desks. And I believe the demand for standing desks is still happening till today because just when you thought it was over, Omicron came and said hello.
Before getting an Omnidesk, I was using a S$60 table purchased from Taobao, which surprisingly valued for money since I used it without any issues for three years. One of the major factors that spurred me into looking at a height-adjustable table was to have a better posture as I have to be in front of my monitors for an extended period. This is especially critical in this COVID-19 pandemic since I have to work from home (WFH) for the rest of this year.
Omnidesk was my top pick, as I have heard excellent reviews from my peers that are currently using it. Initially, I was guessing that Omnidesk actually OEM their table and insert their brand name on it, but after clarification with Omnidesk, it turns out that they do not OEM their tables. Omnidesk designs the specifications of their desks while working with a reputable manufacturer to ensure that these desks are built according to the required specifications right down to the wire. This was a major plus point to me as I am not just paying for the brand name of Omnidesk but also the design, quality, and R&D of the desks.
