Autonomous Standing Desk Review

Published on January 14, 2017

A few years ago I built a DIY standing desk. Like most people, I can’t stand for more than a few hours at a time. I bought a drafting chair to fix that issue. The chair wasn’t very comfortable and was pretty cheap. Not being able to choose between sitting in a comfortable chair and standing soured the standing desk experience for me.

I later moved and got rid of that DIY desk. I knew I wanted to get a motorized desk for my new digs. The search began, to my dismay I couldn’t find any sit/stand desks that were under $1,000 dollars.

After a few months, I stumbled upon the Autonomous motorized standing desk. It checked all my boxes.

The Autonomous desk was an affordable motorized standing desk. It looked nice and came with a DIY option. This allowed me to make a custom tabletop and save a few bucks.

My Opinion on the Autonomous Standing Desk

Tl;DR: This desk is great. I was able to set up the desk in about 60 minutes. I was relieved when I pushed the button and it worked as advertised.

Having multiple programmable heights is great too. I can adjust the height of the desk if I want to show someone something on my screen.

The desk easily supports the weight of my massive three monitor setup. The motor has stood the test of time after 3 years of ownership.

I really have no complaints about this desk. It makes sitting and standing while I work a breeze and holds all my gadgets and PC.

My main advice is to pick the larger desk option if you’re buying one of their all-in-one setups. The small default version is just too small for most people. I found that out from several friends who ordered an Autonomous desk off of my recommendation. They regretted not getting the XL versions.

I added a bunch of cheap LED strips to help my desk “pop”. C’mon, we all know gamers love RGB.
