Look how happy this guy looks:


I kind of like their stuff. I am thinking about maybe getting one of these Fit Consoles of theirs. Does anybody here have one of these?

My studio (audio and video) console is based on that one. Had it for 5 years and never been less than completely happy.

I've always wanted one, but they're quite pricey. Not saying that they're not worth every penny, but they constitute a major investment for many of us.

I have two of them. I had some minor problems putting the first one together but Anthro customer service is easy to deal with. They are a bit on the heavy side and you might need a little help setting things up. Anthro cuts price from time to time during the year so if you are not in a hurry you can likely save a bit. It is worth a phone call to check things out. Their phone service seems a step above their internet service . The stuff is complex enough that human help in getting the options straight is worth the effort.

On a related note, anybody know of an affordable desk with pneumatic, hydraulic or electric height adjustment so you can work either standing or sitting? I used one when I was at a graphic design company about 15 years ago and it was fantastic. I thought by now the prices would have come down some, but the ones I've seen are still pretty expensive, $1500 and up. Has anyone found a less costly desk with this feature?

That's my situation, too. The stuff looks great, but it's out of my range. I'd love a really sturdy computer desk that rolled.

BTW the lack of cables could be a mistake, or it could be that all the cables are routed through clutter-reducing tubes.

If my setup had no cables showing, I'd look at least as happy as that Anthro Dude.

Anthro stuff is ripe for an IKEA or chinese knock-off. Several studios I know have Anthro stuff, and there is nothing that couldn't be mass-produced for a fraction of the price.

True. I got mine during some 30% off sale that included shipping, a major price break. Further, I used one of the shelves (heavy suckers!) to make a template for a bottom shelf (made from 3/4" plywood) that was supported by the frame.

I dunno. I''ve never seen anything from IKEA that could approach my Anthro cart for materials and build quality.
