Comments about Console Cart:
Purchased this desk on the recommendation and review of a fellow video producer who had outfitted his entire facility with the previous generation of Fit Console workstations. Was looking for a new desk that would accommodate multiple monitors, a multitude of external hard drives, video playback decks and similar equipment. I was also intrigued by the many sit/stand desk options out there in the market, since sitting down for hours on an editing job can be exhausting.
I received the shipment a month or so before I was ready to build out, and so the rather large bundle of desk plus add-ons took up a good bit of space (I was anticipating a longer fulfillment time and earlier installation, so it's my fault it sat for so many weeks). The first thing I noticed were the thorough instructions and the included tools - everything that would be needed to put the desk together.
All told, installation was very simple and only required a 2nd person to help flip the desk over after assembly. The single biggest hassle, however, was the keyboard desk mechanism, as the desk includes the sit/stand lift mechanism but the included instructions only had installation guidelines for a tilting keyboard desk. The other instructions were not included in my shipment. After searching around the Anthro website I found some instructions for another cart Anthro sells that had my mechanism listed, and it got me about 90% of the way there. I still ended up with some extra cable restraint pieces that appear to not go anywhere and weren't listed in the other instructions, but it seems unnecessary to me at this time.
I added the standard monitor mounts for a 2 monitor setup, and they clamped on fairly easily. In all, I'm very satisfied with the desk itself, and only wish that it hadn't taken me almost 2 more hours to find and figure out instructions on installing the keyboard shelf.
HIGHLY recommend, it's absolutely worth the price, this desk will probably be in use for 10-20 years.
