I had to return this desk!

    Customer comments about Float® 60x30 Desk:

    I ordered a Float desk at the Seattle store. The first time I was scheduled for delivery, I received a call that the desk had been damaged in transit. They supposedly ordered a new desk for me and delivery was postponed by a week. Today my desk arrived, and while it looked pretty, the float function did not work properly. Did I actually receive a new desk, or was this the orginal desk supposedly repaired? The delivery guys could not get the desk to raise and lower properly, and so I sent it back.

    I spent hours researching and shopping for the perfect desk and it was all a waste of time. Two strikes and you are out, Room and Board. Now I have a nonfunctional office and no time to deal with replacement during the holiday season. I will say that delivery guys were courteous and warehouse didn't argue with me about the refund, so there's that.

      Bought this desk for my husband who works from our home office. He LOVES it. Loves the size, loves the color, loves how it moves up and down. Only thing we have to figure out is cord management from his laptop, monitor, etc.

            Customer comments about Float® 48x30 Desk:

            Updating my review from April 15, 2014.
            I was contacted by R&B after posting my review of Apr 14 - they wanted to make me happy by offering a full refund, or a replacement desk, or a replacement top. As I did like the desk, I decided to keep the base and choose a different top. I went with a larger top - the standard 60x30 maple top (I'd previously purchased the 48 x 30 Solid Maple with Charcoal Stain). Again, the transaction was smooth, and I was amazed at the professionalism and follow-through of R&B Design Associate Sherri Klopfer. What an incredible asset R&B has in her as an employee! Now I can truly say that I LOVE my desk. There are holes on the bottom of the new desk top, but they are fewer in number than the old one. The maple desk top itself is beautiful, and unlike the charcoal stained top, seems durable and not so fragile.
            Thank you, Room & Board (and Humanscale)!!

            Customer comments about Float® 48x30 Desk:

            Unfinished product: had to sand and finish the desktop myself. Delivered with a thin blotched charcoal stain. I had to take very fine sandpaper, "break" the surface a bit, and then put my own charcoal stain on. For the cost of this beast, you'd think Humanscale would give you a completed and professional product. R&B's Denver retail location, where I bought it, were disinterested. They couldn't be bothered with even looking at the pictures I took into their retail store much less documenting it. At this price point, I expect not only a finished product but a retailer that showed concern and collect the feedback for its supplier.

            I like the product otherwise. Great concept that works … I can sit part of my workday and stand for part of it; that I like. Works as advertised. The pneumatic mechanism is smooth and easy to operate. On this basis I gave it a favorable rating.

            I share the other comments about the hole on the bottom and the rough cut underneath. Again, awful fit and finish for this price point. I expect stuff like this from the box retailers, not R&B.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Delivery was prompt and in the timeframe advertised.

            Great desk, questionable service from HS

              Customer comments about Float® 48x30 Desk:

              This is a great desk and is an excellent alternative to electric sit-stand desks. Because it doesn't rely on an electric motor, it's smooth, silent and fast. However, one downside is that you won't be able to set your sit and stand settings like an electric desk. I think the tradeoffs are worth it.

              My issue is around when you need servicing from Humanscale (which hopefully will never happen). I scheduled two appointments and both times the technician failed to arrive and failed to notify me that they wouldn't be coming. This after already paying the repair fee.

              It's a fantastic design by Humanscale. I chose the standard 60x30 maple top. The bottom side of the maple top has what seems to be handling holes and they were left ragged. On top of that, there is a dirt spot on the bottom side that was clear coat finished over. Then on top of that, the lift control was installed crooked.

              I still love the desk but the sloppiness wasn't expected (especially at this price).

                I love the versatility of this desk! I am a writer and used to spend most of my days staring at a computer and sitting. Colleagues of mine have touted the benefits of standing while working (posture, circulation, alertness, health, etc) and I'm embracing. I stand most of the time but if I need or want to sit the desk adjusts with a simple touch. It was much more than I wanted to spend but I looked at it as an investment. So I bit the bullet. I love it!

                Great desk; was excited to buy from R&B for the custom top. The Solid Maple with Charcoal Stain is pretty, but nicks EXTREMELY easily. I was completely surprised by the underside of the desk surface - there are a LOT of extra holes that go almost to the desktop itself (I understand the top is used for different pieces of furniture, but this is a bit much). Also, I expected the underside of the desk to look like the top, but it has jagged drill holes and knots.
                very disappointed in the desktop.
