The problem is, they give out product information which is simply wrong! For example, the EB2 desk which I bought is showing a frame width of 100-170cm in that table, which is incorrect. I have set mine to the minimum width, and from the two outermost points on the top, the width is 110cm, not 100cm. I cannot see anything on this desk which measures 100cm wide! If they cannot even get basic product information like this correct, I’m not sure I would trust all of the rest of the information!
Ending up ordering the EQ5 for £219.99 with the £80 discount. Ultimately it came down to being 3 stage, with a higher maximum height of 127cm, so I can use a mat/treadmill underneath if I want
Got this from Live chat. Comparison of various models for anyone interested
Have any of you out there ever bought a solid hardwood top for one of these desks? If so, do you have any recommendations on the best place to buy one online, and the best wood surface treatment for them? I had been thinking of getting a solid hardwood top for mine, because I need a width of 110cm (it's the minimum width of the desk frame, but it's also the maximum space which I actually have available), and there just don't seem to be any standard desk tops out there with a width of 110cm and a depth of about 70cm. All the standard widths seem to be in multiples of 20cm - 80, 100, 120, 140, 160 etc. If I get a solid hardwood top, I can have it made to whatever dimensions I want. But most of the companies I have found (eg. Worktop Express, House of Worktops) recommend oiling the work surface 3 to 6 times before using it, and then oiling it again every 3 months afterwards, which sounds like a complete pain. I was thinking I would just have to rub it down and varnish it once! In the meantime, if anybody has any recommendations for a traditional desk top (laminate etc.) which is available off-the-shelf with a width of 110cm and a depth of 70 to 75cm, I'd love to hear, as it sounds like that would be a lot less hassle than applying dozens of coats of oil !
@MarkySpark yes the website isnt the best. main thing for me was black legs which wasnt available in the ED2/EB2, otherwise I may have gone for that. Impressed on the delivery time - should be with me by 10am.
