Just noticed this on Amazon lightning deals and ordered it up! I have had it on my radar since last year as it seems to be latest craze, but was waiting for a sub-300 to come in.

I checked 3C and the lowest it was before was £300, and reviews seem good! STraight on it

You're fired.
Can't exactly see the point of it, unless you want to discourage use of a computer and I don't think the desk top is included, that's another £139.99
Standing is actually worse than sitting (think joints).

One possible scenario is where you only need quick use of a computer, for example, in a stock room where you may need it for a minute or so while looking up something.

That said, the 'primary reason' I've heard is because they say it's better than sitting at a desk all day (personally I'd hate standing idle for hours, I wonder if the next craze will be 'walking desks'?).
A lot of health advantages in standing over sitting for long periods at a desk.
But this is a ridiculous price, only because it has an electric motor. I got an adjustable desk from Ikea that I use, simpler, cheaper, and nicer looking. Yes, and it's a complete desk, not just the frame.

The OP's point is that it should be bought because it's the latest craze.
It's that simple.

Why do you think I grew this ridiculous beard and have Tide bubbling out of my nostrils ?

A stock check pc is better positioned on a shelf, plenty of those in most stock rooms.
And when you stand at a desk, you're hardly idle. The fact that you can adjust your weight, step back and forwards, improves your circulation which is a big problem with sitting down all day, and you aren't straining your neck, especially when people don't adjust the monitor height correctly when sitting at a keyboard.
.
I use one of these at work as I have chronic back pain meaning I can only sit or stand for fairly short periods of time and a rising desk means I can work either way.

You can't slouch in your chair while you're standing up...

I can tell you now from experience it isn't better on a regular shelf, especially when a keyboard is involved unless it's really deep (by which point it's as deep as a desk).

It would also still get painful or at least irritating, at least for me, I just take regular breaks to stand up.
If I got one of these at least I wouldn't waste so much time browsing HUKD.

Edit: No I wouldn't, I would just use one of my laptops and lounge on a sofa

I used to work in a factory and used a pc on a shelf, but with the keyboard on a slide out board attached under the shelf.
The fact is, you could approach the terminal and move away without effort, afterwards I found that plonking myself on a chair, shoving my legs under the desk, and struggling to get back up again, was more of a chore.

But, you're correct, it's important to have regular breaks to move around.
Seems a decent price but it is the frame only, work top additional. Also, deal has now ended

Ahh, you didn't mention the sliding tray (which would make up the necessary depth).

But as I said, those sought of conditions are where standing can be preferable to having a regular desk/seat.
This is an office quality stand and is priced so and the reviews are all good so shouldn't be going this cool?
I don't know about anyone else.
There is no way I could use this.
I'd be expecting that Elephant trunk underneath to assault my nuts at any moment.
Maybe one more for the ladies.

Mainly weight, blood sugar, heart risk, are lower when standing, or regular breaks and movement. I found my kidneys and lower back suffered from sitting for long periods. And back/neck strain when you're sitting with a poorly positioned monitor isn't good when it comes with headaches and eyestrain. When you sit, you compress your spine, you're not freely moving your shoulders, tension in the hips, etc. Don't you stretch when you get up from a desk?
In 2015 Denmark made it a legal requirement for offices to provide height adjustable desks.

The health benefits are proven. Some people don't like the idea, fine, just don't buy one.

Moving around and regular breaks, yes. Standing, no. Get the facts right before you make your health worse.
Standing up at the desk at work.... it's probably the cheapest way around.... providing proper healthy moving
away from the desk breaks

Standing means some movement, we're not talking about parade ground attention.
My facts are right, but maybe my mind is more open than yours?

Then close it quickly and stop spreading incorrect knowledge. Movement is good and some sitting is good. Constant standing is bad. It’s nothing new or complicated.

No one said complete standing all day, only the opposite of completely sitting all day. That's the obvious benefit.
The number of patients I work with, neck, back, shoulder pain, headaches, migraines, can all be put down to spending too much of the day sat down at a desk. Work where you are on your feet more, the difference is noticeable. Yes, it's simple if you think about it.
That is a good price for an electric. I've been using this fully manual one from Ikea for a few years now (£179). It is big enough for two 22" monitors side by side.

I really like it. I'm probably exceeding the weight limit on mine but the only issue has been that it can now lower itself without me having to wind it down (although I always stop it before it hits the bottom).Winding up from the lowest point to the height right for me (I am 5ft 7) takes about 70 revolutions of the handle - about 30 seconds of work.

Well spun, that’s the correct way round.

As of 2017, no high-quality, large, long-term, randomized study exists to determine whether sit-stand desks are effective at improving health. According to a 2015 review, there is "very low quality evidence that sit-stand desks can reduce sitting at work"; it is currently unknown whether such a reduction, if it does indeed exist, would result in improved health. An analysis by the University of Sydney published in 2017 concluded that much of the most commonly cited evidence for the health benefits of standing desks had been distorted by an overblown media narrative and the involvement of undisclosed commercial interests.
