Solo Ryzer Standing Desk

The Solo Ryzer Standing Desk, starting at USD $560, is one of our most popular desks, offering you an attractive design with great functionality. This premium height adjustable desk allows you to maintain a workplace that follows the rules of ergonomics, allowing you to increase productivity while staying active. The dual-motor system promotes easy and quick height adjustment, traveling at 1.58 per/second, with a height range of 23.6” to 49.1”. You also get a weight capacity of around 270 lbs, while the desk itself weighs around 65 lbs. Tabletop sizes range from 48” x 30”, 60” x 30” and 72” x 30”.

This desk also offers a variety of remotes that can be paired with it, including memory positioning controls that allow you to set up to four positions. This gives you the ultimate freedom to easily set it according to your height and needs, giving you a smooth transition from standing to sitting whenever you need. Besides that, you can quickly assemble this desk – when tested, we assembled it in 20 minutes! Colors range from white, gray, and black to fit in with any environment. Moreover, it also comes with collision-detection, a child lock feature, and an energy-saving mode. The Solo Ryzer is definitely considered a premium yet affordable standing desk that anyone looking for quality and functionality can purchase. However, our Economy Ryzer is even more affordable than our Solo Ryzer based on a number of different factors.

Economy Ryzer Standing Desk

If you’re looking for the best cheap standing options, the Economy Ryzer Standing is great choice, at USD $399. Compatible tabletops come in three sizes: 42” x 30”, 48” x 30” and 60” x 30”. Unlike the Solo Ryzer, this desk comes with a built-in four-position memory keypad. This inexpensive standing desk has seamlessly blended the quality design with functionality so that you can easily transition it from a standing to sitting position. Like the Solo Ryzer, the Economy Ryzer offers you quiet operation. It’s built with a single motor system and 2-stage legs, which travel at a rate of 1 per/second. Its weight capacity is 155lbs with a frame height of 27.9” - 47.6”. Alongside all of these features, the Economy Ryzer also offers quick adjustment and installation, with collision-detection, a child lock feature and an energy-saver mode. If you are purchasing it for your home with kids, you can use its child lock feature to keep your little ones safe!

Key Differences Between These Standing Desks

Now that we have taken you through both desks, we recommend you look at the key differences to make the right choice. While both desks are superb quality, they do differ in many aspects, which you need to consider before purchase.


Your budget may the biggest factor when choosing a standing desk. It has already been covered that the Economy Ryzer is a low-cost standing desk when compared to Solo Ryzer, but still provides all of the same functionality of an adjustable standing desk. The Economy Ryzer comes in at USD $399, while the Solo Ryzer starts at USD $560.

A primary difference between both desks is the motor. The Solo Ryzer contains a dual motor, while the Economy Ryzer offers a single motor. A dual motor desk helps with the weight distribution of the desk, ensuring both legs travel in absolute sync. The single motor of our Economy Ryzer comes with a transmission rod in order to communicate movement to the other leg. Both the motors are perfect for a standing desk solution, just with different working methods.

Weight Capacity

With a weight capacity of 270 lbs, the Solo Ryzer is pretty great in terms of handling heavy loads thanks to its 3-stage legs and dual motor. While still completely acceptable for day-to-day use, the Economy Ryzer has a lower weight capacity of 155 lbs.

Column Stages

As mentioned, the Solo Ryzer has 3-stage legs, while the Economy Ryzer has 2-stage legs. If 2-stage legs are sufficient for you, and you want a cheap ergonomic desk, the Economy Ryzer is perfect!

Frame Height

All of our desks are designed differently and included in this is the height range of all. You can get a frame height of 23.6 – 49.1 with the Solo Ryzer, and a frame height of 27.9 – 47.6 with the Economy Ryzer. You can see that Solo Ryzer has a lower minimum height, and higher maximum height than Economy Ryzer. In this case, you need to consider which minimum and maximum height you need while working on the desk.


Both desks have impressive warranties, however the Solo Ryzer does beat the Economy Ryzer on this one. The Economy Ryzer has an 8-year warranty, while the Solo Ryzer is covered for 15 years! 


Bottom Line

Both the Economy Ryzer and Solo Ryzer desk are great in their own way, with different specifications and price tags. Are you looking for an affordable standing desk, or for a slightly pricier desk with more advanced desk features? Regardless, both of these desks aim to provide you with a comfortable and easy experience that increases your productivity and activity through the day.
