Consumer SmartDesk 2 Review: Key Features Summary | Autonomous

|Feb 25, 2020

With the litany of product review sites scattered across the internet these days, there’s no shortage of Autonomous SmartDesk 2 review articles to be swayed by. Some of them contain thoughtful feedback and analysis but some are completely off the wall in the other direction, so we wanted to help breakdown exactly what you’re getting when you purchase a SmartDesk.

And considering all the possible reviews you may have read up until this point, thanks for taking the time to visit our actual website and learn more about our products right from the source.

The Autonomous SmartDesk 2 Home Office and Business Office editions are the staples of our smart office lineup. Our goal from the start was to create a quality, durable sit-stand electric desk for a price that was affordable for both big and small businesses, as well as independent entrepreneurs. 

The Autonomous SmartDesk 2 Home Office

No matter what type of work you do, a desk that helps you work better and feel better should be financially viable, not something that’s seen as a luxury for a select few.

We want to help you work smarter, and we feel our SmartDesk 2 will do just that.

Key features of the SmartDesk 2

Key features of the SmartDesk 2

The foundation of the SmartDesk 2 is its sturdy steel frame that gives you a strong base to work on at a range of different heights. The beauty of its design is that it not only limits wobble at every height setting, it also allows for a free range of motion underneath the desk top. 

Traditional desks, and even some standing desks, have four legs that leave you stubbing your toe or bumping your knee while transitioning around your workspace. With our design, you can stand, lean, spin your chair, do lunges or even dance while you work, and you won’t be cursing under your breath after whacking your knee in that same spot for the third time that day.

Another element we focused a lot on fine-tuning for this generation of SmartDesks was the motor. Both the SmartDesk 2 Home Office and Business Office models feature a dual motor system that gives you the best combination of power, speed and silence. The dual motor can lift up to 300 pounds at 2.3 inches per second, while limiting noise to a level of 45 dB, which is considered slightly above the lowest limit of urban ambient sound. In other words, your desk will move quickly and you won’t bother your coworkers when you’re adjusting its height. 

And speaking of adjusting the height, SmartDesk 2 makes it easy with a programmable display that allows you to set four different heights and adjust to them at the press of a button. This is great for shared working spaces, such as a home office, where multiple people may use the desk and don’t want to be constantly searching for that perfect height they had last time. Set your height, save it, and it’ll be ready for you next time within seconds of pressing the button.

Strong, sturdy and stylish

Strong, sturdy and stylish

We wanted to make our SmartDesk 2 as functional and durable as possible, but who’s kidding who, looks still count. Therefore, we made sure to compliment the quality and functionality with a sleek, modern design that will fit well in any office or home.

Our standard size desk tops (53” x 29”) come in either a beautiful bamboo or a high quality MDF finish, with color options of white, black, walnut or white oak. The upgraded XL size tops (70.5” x 30”) are available in the MDF finish in white, black or walnut.

All of our SmartDesk 2 models have ANSI, BIFMA and UL certifications, so while we’d love you to take our word for it, you also have the peace of mind that comes with several impartial international product testers supporting our SmartDesks as well.

The difference between our Home Office and Business Office editions comes down to height range and frame warranty.

SmartDesk 2 Home Office features a height range of 29” to 48” and comes with a 5-year warranty, while the Business Edition gives you a range of 26” to 52” along with a 7-year warranty. You can click this link for a quick and easy comparison of the two models and to decide how important the extra height range and longer warranty is for you.

Who is the SmartDesk 2 made for?

be more productive at work

We designed the SmartDesk 2 Home Office and Business Office editions for just about anybody that wants to be more productive at work and enjoy the growing list of health benefits that standing desks provide, both at work and away from it.

One of the biggest issues with old-fashioned office desks is that they wear you down over time. Hours, weeks, and years of sitting at a desk that requires your body to adapt to it, rather than the desk adapting to you, can cause a whole bunch of health issues. You end up slouching or leaning, with monitors that are too low or too high. We don’t need to give you another link to a “sitting is the new smoking” article. You’ve read it. You know it. It’s better to stand and move around throughout the day than to just sit there like a bump on a log.

With all that said, the health benefits of using a SmartDesk go well beyond just the physical pain of a sore back, a kinked up neck, or even cardiovascular issues related to a lack of exercise. One of the lesser talked about aspects of movement is its effect on mental health. Stress, anxiety and depression are often just as painful as having a physical ailment. And one of the best ways to alleviate these mental drains is to get up and get moving! 

Stand, stretch, walk, run. Anything that gets you active can help spark cognitive engagement and reduce stress. And when you’re feeling better mentally, you perform better. Happy workers are productive workers. It’s as simple as that. And that happiness of being productive and feeling good is something you’ll carry with you into the most important aspects of your life, such as spending time with your family or pursuing other passions outside the office. 

Now, if you’re absolutely determined to stay seated all day long or if you have millions in the bank and price tags mean nothing to you at all, then we admit, our SmartDesk 2 probably was not designed specifically for you. But for everybody else, we made this desk so that you could have an affordable, quality smart office solution that makes your life easier. 

Real SmartDesk 2 reviews

You can Google sit-stand desk reviews until you’re blue in the face and still not be entirely sure if you can trust what you’re reading. Or, you can check out real people with real social media accounts sharing real stories about their experiences using the Autonomous SmartDesk 2. 

We’re proud to have customers from all walks of life that chose a SmartDesk 2 Home or Business edition to upgrade their office and to help them work smarter. It’s awesome to read and watch the stories our customers share with us, from developers to gamers and even HighTechDads! 

“The construction is really solid. The desk doesn’t shake or wobble when using the keyboard, even at the highest setting. Controlling the height is just a press of a button and you have 4 memory settings to use. This sit-stand desk is an essential to any office, home or at work.”

- HighTechDad 

This is an especially cool video showing one of our customers life-hacking their home office and transforming it from a cluttered, cumbersome room into a clean, efficient workspace with a SmartDesk 2 as the centerpiece. 

I have been quickly running out of room in my office thanks to my big, old clumsy desk. I used to like all the work space that I had available to me, but now it's just more space taken up by a desktop which I don't use. When the fine folks at @autonomousdotai approached me to try out one of their fancy desks, I figured the timing was perfect to make a change. I didn't know if I was going to become one of those"standing desk" people, but yes, apparently I am. I have so much more space in my office and I appreciate the ease in which the desk can be lifted and lowered with a touch of a button. And you know what? Working on my feet (and not my butt) is a refreshing change! Does anyone in the CMS Nation use a stand-up desk? - cleanmyspace

Yes, yes, we know that in this modern world of influencers one can still be skeptical about what’s real in terms of product endorsements. However, we’re not talking about fashion or food here. It’s easy to take a photo of a fancy meal, tag a restaurant, then never actually touch what’s on the plate. This isn’t that. We’re talking about workspaces, the place where people literally make (or don’t make) a living. 

An office generally isn’t a place where people are willing to do a complete overhaul, pretend to use and like something, then undo it all over again and go back to whatever they were using before. It’s more likely that their old office space wasn’t cutting it so they wanted to try something new, and once they tried a SmartDesk 2 they didn’t want to go back. And the best part is, you can always drop them a note on social media and ask first-hand how they feel about their new smart office.
