These desks have a worktop measuring 80cm x 45cm, giving you plenty of room for a laptop or monitor and keyboard. The height of the desk is 75cm (clearance for chair is 74cm), making them gr…
Whatever one you get don’t get the ones with a bar on the floor along the front as it’s a real pain tucking the chair in.
Are the golfing desks a different design? Cable management so possibly a hole in one? :D
What else do you have with a laptop? I just have a charger which I put away into my laptop bag.
I've seen this desk a ton of times even for £15 or £20, it's the same on lots of different brand names (they all come from same supplier in china), deal is not that great, with some search, on ebay as well, you likely can find for cheaper. I know cause I have a couple
I though of getting one as I share the dinning room as my work from home office. But realised the amount of trash that you need along with a laptop defeats the objective of folding away after work. :D
Still available at Doncaster Wheatley Centre Argos (y)
And literally breathe on it, it marks and smears! Would definitely not recommend anyone to get a desk from Argos! I bought a black glass one (similar to this) and two critical parts were missing! Called Argos, they advised me to ‘take it back to store’ - I was like I’ve unboxed it all, it weighs a tonne, can you not just ask the supplier to send out the parts which are missing?! Spoke to a jumped up little CS Rep and a similar, very rude ‘Manager’, and they stated due to it now being discontinued, they have no record of what suppliers they use! Absolute joke of a company; I was told to ‘write’ (yes, via post) to their HQ and they may be able to trace a recent invoice from the supplier to get their contact details! Luckily, I have guys who could make me the necessary parts (100% better quality than the originals I’m sure!) and a lot more sturdy, but most people wouldn’t have this as an option, and the customer service was atrocious.
We still have them round by me and can still get Delivered (y)
Even if it was available, I would probably not recommend getting a glass desk for every day use. Tempered glass has a bit of a temper and I've heard horror stories of them randomly exploding (heat fluctuations?). They are also no good if you use a monitor arm as you're concentrating a lot of weight on one spot.
Loads near me in the north east. Luck of the draw. Can even get it delivered same day for £2.95, saves me going out in the rain.
How is this solving any problem? It still takes up the same space as a desk and a bed ? Most kids of gaming age won’t want a metal surround on their beds either.
You forgot to mention the crappy Photoshopped wall: Either a bad bricklayer or decorator if brick effect wallpaper. :|
What space does it save? It is so low that only a toddler can walk under it, and they won't be gaming. A normal kid will instead be 3 ft higher and have a ladder in the way. This actually takes up more room than a bed /desk.
ah yes, kicking off the monitor whilst sleeping or shaking it off while climbing into bed, is this what taylor swift envisioned
Great to see the EG1 back at £139.99 again. This is one of the lower end single motor models that will do the trick if you don't really care so much about extra features. It has a simple co…
We got one of these in early lockdown (with a Flexispot top) and I can't recommend it highly enough.
https://www.ikea.com/gb/en/p/linnmon-table-top-white-stained-oak-effect-70473604/ would this table top crumble if I put screws through it? I am looking for a max 100 width table top due to limited space
try ikea https://www.ikea.com/gb/en/p/bekant-table-top-white-20255321/#content £75 for white colour. 140x60 unfortunately
Can someone recommend a good reasonably price top with dimensions of 140*50 for this? The ones on the website are overpriced
Voted hot as I think this is a great price for a manual crank standing desk. I recently bought this small 120x60cm sized FlexiSpot electric standing desk, with 4 memory settings, for what I consider at great price at £255 off Amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B08D3JDJGK/ As it's very easy to spend £400+ on an electric standing desk, especially if you want larger desk surfaces. 60cm isn't very deep, but 120x60cm was the same sized desk I was previously used to (Lidl one is 140cm). With suitable stands, to get the right heights, it happily works for me to have a main 24 inch monitor, my work laptop raised to the side so I get dual screen + room for external keyboard, monitor, a drink and A5 notebook. Not much room if you work with more paper, but I'm mostly paperless.
ahuggett 17/05/2022 14:31Isn't a height-adjustable chair able to get you at the right height for the desk? In cases where the desk is on the smaller side, you can choose the right height for resting your forearms properly, or the right height to keep your lower leg vertical, but not both. With a lower leg at a non-vertical angle, it takes more effort to maintain an upright posture. With your forearms at a different height to the desk, it’s hard on the wrist and elbow. It helped me a lot, I do yoga and visit a chiropractor every other month to ‘reset’ my back as my natural way of standing isn’t so great.

“Does it come in black”
Seems okay to me. Frame is good. Top is 18mm thick, not the 25mm you get from a proper office desk but it is supported by the frame in the middle so doesn't sag. With it being LIDL, you can always return if you are not satisfied.
Any chair recommendations for someone who has been experiencing shoulder pain since having to work from home? I want to rule out my chair as the cause (yellow fabric office armchair style chair from the range)
Picked up 2nd hand Aeron on eBay for £333. Only thing wrong was the back pad which had torn, picked up a new one for £16. So 350 all in, can't complain. It was either that or a new secretlabs chair... so saved £150 and is likely better quality!
Just a heads up! This is not sold by the range. It's by a range trusted partner. Means The range stores or CS won't touch it if any issues! Deal direct with seller.
Yes, fit and adjustment, in line with the rest of the work station, are essential - don't just adjust the chair, as the ideal position then may mean you can't reach your desk, keyboard etc. properly. However, the main thing is not to sit for too long, anyway, no matter how comfortable and supportive the chair and posture. We are designed to move and be in different positions and postures, but not necessarily to sustain them: Lots of bad postures are better than one good one for too long! *Disclaimer: I am a lecturer in physiotherapy
Now a penny under £100 on the manual adjustable model, which uses a crank system, as opposed to eclectic motors. You will need to add your own desk top to it , which can be anywhere between…
You've probably never had lower back issues then, or at least had professional advice about it. Standing at your desk and working for an extended period (e.g. an hour) is a good way to relieve the stress on your lower back, and allows you to do exercises like swinging your leg to reduce the effects of sciatica, etc. When you have such problems with nerves and discs, sitting down can really exacerbate those problems. Standing all day can be quite tiresome, hence the need to switch it up and down. Getting up for a coffee for 5 mins won't do a lot. Having a motorised desk is a much better idea, as you can get the position set exactly right each time with minimum fuss. Plus if you've got a case of lower back pain, the last thing you want to be doing is bending down and turning a crank.
If the whole idea is to change position often, what's the point of a standing desk? I really don't see much of a difference than standing up out of my chair and taking multiple breaks to walk around.
I didn't, no, I bought my daughter a desk a while back, so didn't need one this time around. I get that it's not the widest, so not ideal for anyone using a PC etc, but for anyone looking for a desk for a smaller room it could be a good option :)
My current desk is 160 depth and 220 wide and I need a bigger one as it’s curves inwards as you face it giving less space in the middle section, so going to resort to making my own with a sit stand (dual motor) and two sections of solid oak worktop butterfly bolted together underneath to make it 180cm depth by 200cm wide. (And 38mm thick if anyone cares) The worktop should outlast me. If the motors die I can just put some legs onto it to make a traditional desk at a height I’m comfortable with.
Fantastic, a wipe-clean desk specifically recommended for teenagers.
Indeed. I suppose it's for a child. A laptop will fit but room for resting arms will be zero. I personally go for minimum 70cm depth, 80cm is ideal. Most desks are 60-65cm and poor imo

Pretty sure adding a racing stripe will make your games run faster too
Headphones hangers are actually super handy to help keep clutter off the desk when not in use. Trying to leave gaming headphones (which are fairly massive) and long cables on the desk takes too much space a looks naff.
Bought mine not "HOMCOM" but identical as this one for £30 from ebay. It is for £46 right now over there. As stupid as it looks on those photos it is decent desk. I actually find headphone hanger usefull and they don' take any space on my desk at all when I decide to listen from speakers. Top is nice in touch and durable if someone looks for black coloured desks I don't see it as a bad choice. They should stop calling everything gaming though
I guess the argument is that whilst you're "playing with your joystick", you might knock your drink over onto expensive gaming equipment if it's on the desktop. But yeah....It's just a regular desk with bad paint job and two tiny gimmicks
