Autonomous SmartDesk Core Controls

  • The price of the desk was a common piece of feedback in reviews, even by those who were extremely happy with their purchase.
  • Users complained about the height range of the desk. One 6’2” user complained the desk’s maximum height was too low, while another complained the minimum height was too high.

Our Final Opinion on this Gadget

If you’re in the market for an adjustable standing desk, it is difficult to look past the Autonomous SmartDesk Core. From its height range, speed of raising at maximum load and the immense weight it can hold, this is a solid choice. However, the drawbacks are clear. If you’re looking for more design options, are on the taller end of the height scale or aren’t looking to spend upwards of $500 on a desk, you may want to look elsewhere.

However, if you use multiple monitors and like the thought of being able to put almost anything you want on your desk without worrying and can see yourself changing positions from seated to standing and anywhere in between regularly, the Autonomous SmartDesk Core is for you.
