I went for a Fully Jarvis, it’s got no problems raising and lowering 2 laptops, 2 heavy monitors, monitor arms, speakers and loads of other desk-clutter. The Jarvis website says it’s got a lift capacity of 158kg (inc desktop which is probably around 20kg maybe), looks like the IKEA one has a max 75kg load. I would guess you’re unlikely to exceed either limit there!
So far I’ve been really happy with the Jarvis! Even when sitting, being able to fine tune the exact hight is lovely depending on if I’m bolt up-right concentrating or lounging back watching a video. Being able to set it to standing is also great for working with someone else so they’re not having to lean over.
I don’t use the standing feature everyday but at least a few times a week. To be fair, I think it takes a while to get used to the fact that you can stand up. Probably need to set myself a reminder to use that feature a little more often.
Some things to keep in mind when shopping:
- Height presets / position memory? I opted for that and it’s definitely a nice feature to have.
- Range of movement (the Fully Jarvis extended range legs & the IKEA one look to be similar in that regard)
- Desktop, the Jarvis had a 80cm deep top which was what I wanted though you can get a “legs only” kit if you want to source your desktop from else-where.
