Had picked up a $40 piece of white melamine from HD before they shut down so we have something for now. assemble was not that hard, though with only 3/4" mdf table top I was afraid the screws might pop through the surface (they didn't). In all it is pretty solid construction, good machine screws to bolt together (allen key). Would recommend a drill/power screwdriver for the 20 screws you need to put in to secure the work surface. We have it extended to 70" right now (full) with a 30x72" top on it. Drawbacks: primecable logo on the leg (only one is exposed) and the controller is made out of some pretty cheap feeling plastic. Overall very happy with the price and the quick delivery and setup. (Taxes in $462 for base and table top).
How does the table top feel? HD website says the edges are not finished.

Any of you using anti-fatigue mats? Any recommendations?

I looked at autonomous.ai and those tables look quite fancy for a little more $.
They do look nice but there's only a single width option -- 53" wide

rtings.com has their chair ranked horribly. Can only imagine the rest of their stuff is of similar quality.

Yah, I'm in Vancouver as well and placed an order yesterday afternoon. I got a shipping notification this morning, but it say it won't be here until the 14th Angry Face. It seems like it is being shipped from Concord, ON. This is really disappointing considering it is a Vancouver-based company

We are discussing whether it is a good candidate for a standing table top or not.

Since many new holes need to be drilled I am saying not. Please don't overthink it.

Ideally, wood is better. It comes with a price as well which some people prefer not having to pay.

I've had Linnmon table tops before (70"+ and 60"), nope, not the best quality, but it lasted 10+ years before giving it away. It'll get the job done.

Went ahead and cancelled my costco.ca order on the Bestar desk and ordered an Autonomous SmartDesk 2 Premium instead. The 53"x29" top actually works better for my space and having it at the right sitting height for me will work out better. Website says it'll ship April 10th so possibly have it by next week?

I got the black frame, cause the customer service person mentioned that the grey one is OOS when I contacted them about something else
