What you are referring to is front to back instability. I have studied the past reviews and it seems like they made a change to the legs and shortened the length. So if you use a wide tabletop or load items off center, the front to back instability is accentuated. As for the lifts, they would only come into play on instability if the two motors were not synced and one end lifts more than the other and you end up with tilt. Early on I did a lot checking for this tilt. I would put a level on the desktop and drive the desk from minimum to maximum height and back looking for tilt. I did not see any problems.

As a complete and total novice... how worth it is it to buy the frame separately? I was planning on just buying a table by itself. It didn't even occur to me this was an option.

Is it a lot of work to "make" my own table?

NOTE: I've used dual monitor arms and concluded it is better to use one arm per monitor - solid hold and very sturdy.
Agree that single arm are better and provide much better flexibility in set up. I'd recommend these, which are on sale for $27.99 until 24th Sept. I'm using it on a 27" and another on 24" monitor without any problems.

Nice. How solid is the gas spring one? I've noticed that the table shakes up a bit when it moves up and down, does it affect the adjusted height?

For those of you who are new to the 'Standing Desk' Scene, you normally do 45 minutes standing and 15 minutes sitting. Your back will tell you when you are due to sit down. In either case, this helps productivity as your lungs are fully expanded.

I am not a medical professional, so I don't know what the ideal numbers are. There are days where I don't want to sit and there are days where I don't want to stand. I think the idea is not to turn the office chair into a couch for 3 hours at a time. You can't go wrong as long as you switch back and forth based purely on comfort.

There are adjusters on the spring, so you can tighten them up a bit depending on the weight of the monitor, it will reduce the shake and stopping any "sagging". My table does not shake when moving the monitors, but I'm not constantly moving them either. I do find it useful when I occasionally rotate my monitor to vertical though.

Anyone have any experience with this one? Reviews on the site seem good but not sure how much I trust on-site reviews. Couldn't find a previous thread about it on RFD.

Seems like they do have QC issues. There are consistent concerns: wobble and screws being stripped.

Does anyone have a decent alternative? How about that ikea one that comes with a top?

I know we are in the midst of a fourth wave but many companies are making employees go back to the office now. Demand for office furniture has dropped a lot compared to a year ago.

Height adjustable from 74.9 cm to 119.4 cm (29.5 in. to 47 in.) For me, it would be too high as it won't go down further then 29.5 in...

You lose the flexibility of having a larger table top.
That reinforcement beam on the base has good intentions in mind to increase rigidity, but it gets in the way when you move in and out while seated.
