Gaming computer with 6 hard drives, 32"/24"/24" screens, condenser, 5.1 surround, UPS and a car battery.... hahaha
The computer case and UPS are on the floor, there is no room on the tabletop for them. I suppose I could install a bracket and hang everything but real estate is pretty scarce underneath. I have a couple of power bars and a ethernet hub installed underneath.

Seems they've run out of stock already. It was a vwindesk on Amazon.

I have a large and deep desk, so my desktop is on the left, and 3 screens on the right. UPS is hanging from the bottom along with a cable basket.

The one that you bought is single-motor.

I was also thinking that single motor is not really a deal breaker for me BUT then I realized the low height number is smaller with the dual motor. This is a good thing as I've heard many complaints on the costco's tresanti that its too tall (30" lowest) and the single motor is very similar to that.

Not sure why the single motors and dual motors have height differences. I can go with single motor if the heights are same as the dual motors.

long term user, I bought this last Dec and the frame starts wobbling at some point, contact the customer service and they determined the two lifts are defective and sent me two to replace. However the issue isn't fixed and waste a lot of time to disassemble and reassemble and send the faulty ones back. Their customer service also stop responding when I asked for further diagnosis and help. We had the single one at home with exactly same setup ( same desktop from ikea, two monitors mounted and a sff pc), costs less and not that significant wobble compares to the dual motor one. I would suggest getting the single motor, I think the wobble is due to the design issue, I mainly got the dual motor for the lower height it can go but I would rather have sth more stable instead.
The dual motor wobbles at both lower and higher height when I shake the desktop a bit. The single motor doesn't wobble at all at lower height, a little bit at higher height but a lot better than the dual motor so I won't complain lol
Add the video link showing the wobble on the dual motor:

Added the video link of the single motor to compare:

Could the wobbling be due to the desk being lifted too high? The front to back width of the legs are not that wide. If items are placed too far off center and the desk lifted very high, the torque can be quite large.

i don't think so we had the exact same setup on the single motor, but even at higher height, it's stable enough, the dual motor wobbles even when you use your finger to shake the desk top with a bit force. It's more likely bad design of the lifts

Does anyone else have the wobble issue with this?

It's the bolts that attach the legs to the bottom on each side. They're actually underneath the legs where the legs meet the base. tighten them and the wobble goes away. It's not wobbling because its defective, its wobbling because over time some of your bolts have come loose allowing the legs enough "play" to rock back and forth instead of being compressed against the bases.

If you take everything off the top of your desk, you can lift each side onto blocks of some kind to get access to the bolts without any real disassembly. Tighten the bolts well. Some threadlocker will prevent it from happening again. Let me know how it goes for you but I'm pretty sure this is an easy fix if your problem is the same as mine was (looks the same from the video).

Source: mine started wobbling so I took it apart to figure out what was going on and found the loose bolts, and that I didn't even need to disassemble it to fix the issue (although it was mostly disassembled by then)

Check the tabletops at Ikea, you can buy them separately.

Recently bought the Bekant top and used it with the PrimeCables desk, no issues with it. The supplied screws into the particle board was not a problem.

yes, we indeed find the bolt loose and tighten them more, the wobbles improves but not gone, and two of the bolts failed after we tighten them too much. by failure I mean the bolt is able to rotate but don't tight any more, that's why I said it's design issue.

I have the single motor and yes it's lil bit too high for the arm even with the chair at the highest setting. Just bought this dual motor for that purpose of having lower height.

It sounds like something is stripped. Maybe find some replacement bolts of the same thread and length?

BTW, what threadlocker are you using, I would probably try that, the wobble has really been annoying so far lol

yeah that's my next step to try since we plan to renovate the room a bit, but personally I think the lifts isn't good design compare to the single motor's
