IKEA SKARSTA Sit Stand Desk Review

There are a couple issues with the IKEA SKARSTA desk that you should know about before you get one yourself.

The IKEA SKARSTA desk is a height adjustable office desk for sitting or standing. The IKEA SKARSTA uses a manual crank to adjust the height but IKEA also offers the BEKANT desk that uses an electronic motor for adjusting the height.

Despite these flaws I've identified (issues with wobble, balance, and the crank bar) I still highly recommend you check out this desk since there isn't any other desk in this price range that offers the same level of functionality.

UPDATE: The updated accessory part that Ikea sent me does NOT help with this problem.

Check out my unboxing and assembly video for the IKEA Skarsta desk here:

If you have any questions about the product. Let me know in the comments.

The IKEA SKARSTA desk currently only comes in white but is available in two different sizes.

IKEA SKARSTA (120cm length version)
