We assemble & review the IKEA Motorized Bekant Sit & Stand workstation with the GERTON solid beech wood top (chef block). It’s very easy to assemble and looks amazing but I feel the Autonomous Smartdesk Sit-Stand workstation is a better overall value with more options including remembering positions.

▼ My personal recommendation for the perfect sit-stand workstation ▼
Get the Autonomous base for ~$300 (link below) and buy the $80 GERTON solid butcher block table top from IKEA and you have a $380 sit stand that is the best of both worlds. The Autonomous tops are expensive and plain looking so this would be my choice if I did it over again. Also, the Jarvis desk on Amazon looks very similar in functionality to the Autonomous Jarvis Sit-Stand Base – http://amzn.to/2ofNSyu.

▼ Questions & Answers ▼
Q) You’re fat…
A) I’m well aware of this fact…
Q) You said the Autonomous was half the price but it’s only like $100 cheaper all said and done.
A) I realized this after making the video. I didn’t realize the base didn’t come with a top when you ordered it from Autonomous. But look at this way, you can get a better base for much cheaper and put your own top on it for cheap.
Q) The audio sucks.
A) We setup the recording equipment quickly and the audio wasn’t very good, it took a lot of processing just to get it as good as it is. I am going to try and get a 2nd LAV for future video shoots with other people so we can have that nice crispy audio.
