How it Operates

The operation and stability vary a lot from desk to desk. The table below gives you an idea of how the Jarvis behaves at different height settings, how quiet it is and it's ease of assembly.

Overall the Jarvis is a high performing desk with rock solid stability while at it's minimum height and only small stability compromises at it's max height.  For a desk without a horizontal support bar, side to side racking is excellent.

In terms of smoothness the Jarvis is great, and raises and lowers with confidence. The only compliant is an above average motor noise but this is the price paid for having one of the highest lifting capacities of any standing desk.

Control Unit

The control unit can make or break a desk but we're happy to report the Jarvis has most everything we look for. Complete with 4 memory presets you can rely on returning to your ideal sitting and standing height over and over again without fuss. The only things missing from the control unit itself is a standing timer, which can help you form a schedule of sitting for a period of time then standing. We wouldn't be surprised if future versions of the Jarvis included this feature.

Mechanicals

One of the Jarvis's claim to fame is it's high lift capacity, especially at it's price. At 350 lbs. you can have piece of mind that no matter what your computer setup is the Jarvis can lift and support it without issue. This is accomplished by a dual motor setup, one for each leg. This is a common trait of quality desks.

If you've been shopping for standing desks, you may have noticed different leg designs with 2, 3 or even 4 tiers.  The Jarvis 2-tired design is what we've come to know as the most stable. We have tended to notice the more tiers there are, the more propensity there is for stability issues.

Warranty

One of the first things we look at when reviewing a desk is the warranty. It's a great way to gauge how well a company stands buy their product.

Compared to many comparable standing desks, the Jarvis has a amazing warranty that is unlimited, and exists for 7 years. This may be the only case we've seen like this. many standing desk companies only warranty the frame or table top, or have different conditions or shorter terms for electrical components and moving parts. You can rest assured that Fully has a great warranty that should give you great piece of mind.

  1. Hello, Great site and information.
    My question on the Jarvis is that this review mentions it has a dual motor setup / one for each leg.
    Looking at the questions on Amazon , one of the replies indicates it has only one motor on the desks coming from Amazon.
    Looking for a dual motor , I wonder what the reality is. One motor or two ( I’m looking at the 60” desk). Not sure it’s different between the 48 and the wider ones .

    Thank you again for some really good info.

    Regards Gabor

    1. Hi Gabor, thanks for your question! The Jarvis does indeed have two motors
