Great adjustable height for sewingI bought this desk 9 months ago for my tiny sewing room/office, and it has been the perfect solution for me. I'm tall, and I have long thought that I needed a surface a bit higher than my kitchen counter for rotary cutting. Sure enough, when I set this table to a comfortable height I was able to cut much longer without any neck or shoulder pain. It's amazing how as little as a 1/2 inch height change can make all the difference in comfort!
I lower it a little bit to work standing on my laptop or for ironing (I made an appropriate heatproof cover for ironing). I can move it down more for sitting and writing, or more for my laptop, or even more to get my sewing machine bed to the right height for sewing. I used to use a desk, a little adjustable table and my kitchen counter to get close to the right heights for all these activities, and it still wasn't great. I love that I can now do them all in one place.
I have found that if I leave my 35-lb sewing machine sitting on the table with its weight resting more on one leg than the other, the table won't raise smoothly. It will go up an inch or so, then the motor stops, even if you keep holding the button. I have read this complaint in online reviews, and was worried that my desk was a lemon. However, taking the sewing machine off and letting it sit for a hour fixed the problem. I now put the machine away at the end of the day, and haven't had a problem since. My workspace also looks tidier!
I highly recommend this desk to sewers, quilters, and crafters of all sorts. This desk has revolutionized my sewing room. It's an ergonomic dream, and allows me to make the best use of my small space.

Found repairI have wrote a review before for this desk. I had problem with desk tiling and now I found the simple fix. It was caused by nut under leg getting loose, but since desk is very heavy it is not easy. To balance stars I gave bit more than what I think.

assis-deboutl'entreprise où je travail a acheté ce bureau il y a moins d'un an. Maintenant il ne monte que d'un quart de pouce puis arrête. J'étais très satisfaite avant ce problème. Je n'ai que 2 écran sur celui-ci alors le problème n'est pas du au poids.

Great while it lastedBought this less than a year ago, I'd say 8 months. The motor crapped out and can only move the desk down from now on. Will NOT go up anymore. Right now it is a little lower than I would like. Contacted IKEA, they immediately sent me a motor that still only does the down button. Nothing has been fixed. Contacted them again with no response back after 4 days.
