Jarvis Standing Desk Introduction

Undoubtedly the best-selling product from US-based company ‘Fully’, the Jarvis Desk offers the best in terms of affordability and fitness. Based on the simple concept that movement keeps the human body healthy, the Jarvis Standing Desk showcases an impressive portrayal of ergonomics, fine-tuned by technology.

The fact that you can alter the desk frame height all the way from 23.25 inches to 48.75 inches makes it suitable for users of all heights and builds. Furthermore, this fantastic standing desk frame allows you to pre-set 4 different heights as per your convenience, enabling you to alter the height at the mere touch of a button, at 1.5 inches per second!

As sitting for long hours can wreak havoc on your body, an adjustable standing desk that enables you to stand, move around as well as sit in the correct posture, has become the need of every health-conscious, working professional. Being an extremely reliable budget model in the vast ocean of standing desks in the market today, the Jarvis Desk keeps it minimalistic yet comfortable.

Please note that the shipment will include the adjustable desk frame, memory pre-set handset, electrical components and tools for managing the cords of the desk. Any table top of your choice needs to be purchased separately, as long as it conforms by the measurements of 24 to 36 inches depth-wise and 44 to 82 inches width-wise.

Jarvis Standing Desk Shipment & Assembly

Not only was my Jarvis Desk Shipment delivered within a week of ordering, but it also came well secured in a box with thick foam covering and interspersing to avoid even the slightest damage. If you’ve had even the slightest experience putting together DIY furniture in the past, this will be a half-hour cakewalk for you. Else, you will need to carefully read the instruction manual (which is indeed very well-explained) and proceed to assemble your brand new Jarvis Standing Desk in an hour and a half at the max.

Overall, it’s pretty simple as long as you affix the screws tight enough. Once you are done, please check for wobbling. If there is any, it only means that you haven’t done the job perfectly and must re-check. I would suggest you go from top to bottom, starting with the upper frame, the tabletop supports, the legs and finally the base.

Jarvis Standing Desk Build & Aesthetics

Having reviewed multiple numbers of standing desks and frames in the past, I know for a fact that many desks boast of being super-sturdy, but end up being a complete eyesore. Now I know functionality always has the upper hand over aesthetics, but that doesn’t mean you can completely ignore the ‘looks’ factor. In this regard, I’m glad to tell you that the Jarvis Desk is equally well-built and smart-looking.

There are no rigged surfaces or hanging wires whatsoever. Although the Jarvis standing frame looks great when paired with the Ikea Galant (47 x 23.5 inches table top) as suggested by many, I think it’s way cheaper to buy a laminated oak or mahogany top from sellers like Flash Furniture or Valera on Amazon. Well, your ultimate choice rests with you alone!

Jarvis Standing Desk Comfort & Ease of Use

Seriously, folks, the Jarvis Desk Frame is the easiest to use amongst the hoards of standing desks flooding e-commerce portals. Even in an electric standing desk, the absence of pre-set heights could be annoying when you have to keep pressing a button to go low or high. Here, your Jarvis knows the height setting you have chosen and will adjust accordingly. No squeaking noise, and definitely no jerks! Irrespective of whether you are a beginner to the world of standing desks or not, I would highly recommend that you use an anti-fatigue mat while standing and working on the Jarvis Desk.

Just like prolonged standing can stress out your back, prolonged standing can mess with your feet. So the mat will cushion the undue burden on them. Also, please just don’t keep standing in a single position for long. Move around, stretch and grab a high stool to sit in intervals. The idea is to enable constant movement and not sit or stand idle!

Jarvis Standing Desk Safety & Maintenance

Trust me, for the meager price that you pay, the fact that you are getting a holistic manufacturer’s warranty of 7 years, is definitely a big advantage of getting home the Jarvis Standing Desk. Despite weighing only around 60 pounds, the frame can easily support a weight of up to 350 lbs.

As a word of caution, I would suggest you not to keep any fragile items on the corner of the desk, while adjusting its height. Although the upward and downward movements are pretty smooth, there could be a slight bit of wobbling and you better not take any chances! Also, make sure no cables or loose wires are coming in the way of the telescoping crossbar or the legs for that matter.

If you feel the cable management accessories provided are not enough to secure all wires, please buy an additional wire fastener. It doesn’t cost much but plays a vital role in ensuring safety. Once I had a minor issue when the wires got entangled as I accidentally pressed the height adjust button. That’s when I pleasantly discovered that Jarvis customer support team was extremely responsive and helpful. They got the issue resolved easily. That’s something I definitely didn’t expect from a budget standing desk like the Jarvis Desk!
