Why you can trust Digital Camera World Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out how we test.

The Maidesite S2 Standing Desk might not have the same bells or whistles as the best standing desks – for features like wireless charging – but it's the perfect option when space is tight and you want to squeeze a standing desk in the room. There are four color options to choose from, and we went for the white and pine option. 

The controller is installed in a position of your choosing along the front of the desk and attached to the motor stored under the desk. Cables are kept tidy with a discrete panel that screws to the underside of the desk and charging cables are kept out of the way with a hole in the desk.
