On test: Maidesite table frame - height-adjustable, electric, white and made of metal

Maidesite Table Frame Photo

The manufacturer maid site contacted me a few weeks ago and offered to test their electrically height-adjustable table frame. Since I'm a big fan of height-adjustable desks myself and have had one for years, I was of course open to this test. But as always with such tests, my promise also applies here: The report is unbiased and honest, despite the free product.

You can also find the table frames from Maidesite here on amazon.

At this point I would like to make a recommendation for further reading: A small treadmill and this table frame make a great one Treadmill desk. ;-)

Table base and table top set available

This report is mainly about that height-adjustable table frame T2 Pro Plus, but Maidesite also has a set that you can buy a matching table top with. This set is called under Maidesite S2 Pro Plus listed.

If you want to buy such a set, you can choose between the colors white, gray and black for the table frame. For the tabletop you can choose between white or oak (no solid wood!) as the color and choose either a surface of 120 x 60 cm or 140 x 70 cm.

And if you get a bit confused with the many different models that are on the site, then I can help you this shopping guide recommend from Maidesite. There, the differences between the various table frames are clearly explained in a comparison table.

Construction of the Maidesite table frame

The table frame comes as a quite compact package with a weight of approx. 30 kilograms by mail. It contains all the individual parts and screws that are needed to set up the frame and attach the table top.

It is nice that not only the screws for the Maidesite table top are included, but also wood screws to connect a solid wood table top to the frame.

All screws are sorted in various packages so that you can quickly find the right one using the instructions.

I did the assembly with my wife in about 20 minutes. The instructions are available in German, which is certainly not 100% grammatically correct, but the information on which screws you have to use where and the photos are so good that you can set it up without any problems.

Workmanship of the table frame - sturdy metal frame

In terms of processing, there is nothing to complain about. The frame is made of metal and is very robust. The screw connections also work well enough for me to withstand a high load. According to the technical data, a maximum load of 125 kilograms is specified and I think, including the table top, you can easily add 100 kg to the frame without breaking anything here.

The paint is also holding up quite well. During assembly, I used the Allen key to get at the painted metal several times and there were still no scratches in the paint.

Here you can see the finished frame, which is already mounted on the table top. The power pack with the electronics then disappears under a plate between the two bars under the table top.

Advantage: cross bracing almost invisible

One benefit I see with the Maidesite table base when comparing it to my own base is the placement of the cross brace between the legs. On my model, there is a strut under the table at about shin height, and I get caught on it several times a day when I stretch my legs.

In the Maidesite construction, the connection between the two columns is the bar, which is directly under the table top. This gives you maximum free space under the table and you can't bump into anything.

Here you can clearly see that Maidesite has dispensed with struts at leg height. Various shins will thank you (photos: Sir Apfelot).

Furthermore, my current table frame still has a thin drive shaft, which goes from one leg to the other under the table top. I assume this is there because I only have a motor in one table leg. The mechanism in the second leg is driven by the same motor via the drive shaft.

Maidesite has solved this better as there is a motor in each leg here. This eliminates the metal rod for transmitting the drive. The result: the desk looks much tidier and more elegant from below.

Speaking of tidy: there is also a panel under the desk that can be used to route and hide cables. This is a very practical thing.

Here you can see the wiring, whereby you can attach the touch panel on the left or right side of the table.

The cables and the power supply on the underside of the table frame can be covered with a plate to keep it tidy.

Operation with an LED touch screen

The control element of the Maidesite table frame is a little eye-catcher because it is a black and white LED touchscreen. When you tap on it, the display activates and you can use it to adjust the height of the desk, program fixed heights using the memory function and even set a timer to remind you to get up or work standing when you worked sitting down.

The LED touch control can be attached to the right or left of the table and can not only change the height of the table, but also trigger numerous other functions.

The display has hidden two other functions so that they are not directly visible:

  • On the back of the control end there is a button to switch a child lock on or off.
  • There is a USB socket on the side, which can be used to connect a USB cable to charge a smartphone, tablet or other device.
In the photo, the screen protector was still on the touch panel, but the control element is quite elegant.

Safety function: trapping is not possible

Speaking of child safety, the table frame has a separate safety function that detects whether something is jammed when it is raised or lowered. As soon as the effort required changes even slightly, the frame moves back and thus prevents you from getting trapped.

The rubber feet offer a lot of grip and prevent damage to the floor. The construction also shows how solid the table frame is constructed.

My conclusion on the height-adjustable table frame from Maidesite

I'll be honest: If I had the chance to use the table frame instead of my current one, I would exchange it immediately. Unfortunately, that doesn't work anymore because my wife has already gotten her hands on it. She has always had a normal table and then a chunky wooden frame as a structure to put her MacBook Pro and the monitor on. So a self inelegant solution to having a standing desk.

She is so enthusiastic about Maidesite's electric height-adjustable desk that she immediately moved all her computer equipment and has not been found at her normal desk since.

But I can only warmly recommend the table frame from Maidesite. It looks great, is sturdy yet elegant, and the security features and usability are also very good. Unfortunately, I don't have such practical storage spaces for predetermined heights when standing and sitting on my frame and therefore I always look over at my wife a little jealously.

    Thanks Jens for the interesting article.
    I am also currently looking for a HV table and will certainly take a look at it.
    Have you also tested comparison tables or are there others who can recommend products?

    • Jen Kleinholz says:

      Hello Simon! Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately, I only have my own desk as a comparison. It's solid and consists of an IKEA table top and a 10-year-old Noname frame, but now that I've seen the Maidesite table frame, I know what to look out for next time:
      - nicer look
      – no crossbar at shin height
      – Sensor for detecting "collision", because mine doesn't have that either
      – Child lock
      – Memory slots are nice to have if you change them several times a day

      But maybe another reader has a tip.

    Hi Jens,

    I'm currently in the process of deciding whether to buy the frame. At home I have a fairly massive table top 200 x 110 x 4 ... I've worked my way through various forums and test descriptions. However, I'm not sure if I should spend the 300 € for the frame. What are your experiences after using the table regularly? Hot or rather junk? What makes me a bit suspicious is that the support is located in China or in the USA.

    Do you know more?

    Regards
    Frank

      Hello Frank! The frame is great... nothing wrong with it. It will also cope with a heavy solid wood table top. The T2 Pro Plus has a weight limit of 125 kg in the technical data. I don't know what your tabletop is made of, but I think it should be underneath. Maybe you can't put a washing machine on top of it anymore. 😊

      And the China support is the case with almost all of these providers. If you have to send the thing back because something's broken, they're more likely to send you a new one and let you dispose of the broken one. But I don't think there's much going wrong. Everything is very solidly processed. So, definitely not junk, but rather hot!

        Hi Jens,

        Thank you for your prompt reply. I had a kitchen countertop custom made for me. So it's a bit massive. The stand was also offered on Amazon. Unfortunately, there were also two negative reviews that made me sit up and take notice. Hence the forum entry. Maybe I'll order it after all. When it comes to returns, I think that there could be trouble here. Since they have no location in Germany.

        What do you think about that?

        Regards
        Frank

        • Jen Kleinholz says:

          Hello Frank! If my information is correct, the dealers have to pay the shipping costs for a return if the device cost more than 50 euros. But maybe that's different again. But I always worry about that. Especially when I order via Amazon, they usually make the retailer so hot under the butt that a solution is always found. In one case, Amazon's AZ guarantee also took effect. The retailer wouldn't refund me and after some discussion Amazon sent me the money and negotiated the rest with the retailer.

    Hi Jens,

    short update. I've booked the table after all. The delivery went out via Amazon Prime. To be honest, I'm pleasantly surprised. The construction was very quick, the accessories very well sorted. All in all I am satisfied

    Regards
    Frank

      Thank you for your feedback. This will surely help other readers in their decision. I'm still happy with the table. Nothing to complain about!
