Well Engineered Product, except for few details
An elegant and well Engineered Product.
Detailed printed instructions and videos online.
Printed documents vary within the packages.
Lacking torque values.
2 out of 4 middle tabletop mounting holes did not align in Y direction, considering these holes are on there same part. Used only 6 screws. Middle 4 holes need to be slots.
Mounting screws for control unit is way too small, need a watch makers screw driver, can not apply enough force on a self tapping screw. Swapped these for shorter, slightly larger screws with larger Philips head.
Perfect - had it for months, long warranty
I bought the 1500mm Stillford S2 electric desk from Office Works and am absolutely in love with it. It's a large, sturdy, clean and nice looking desk.
The legs are completely out of the way and lay very flat against the ground. Unlike some other electrical desks, there's no large motor that gets in the way of your legs or where you sit, it has three heights you can calibrate (I have sitting, reading, and standing height). It moves very fast and calibration is so easy it takes no time at all.
All the cords are well kept/hidden at the back of...the desk. I'm a female and built the desk by myself, though two people would be preferred (but if need be, it can be done alone). The only thing to consider is its weight if it needs to be carried up stairs (it weighs 51kg both the table top and legs/motor). The legs of this desk are designed to accomodate different sized table tops - theoretically if I wanted to get an 1800mm, 2000mm, or 1200mm table top the legs could accomodate it. The motor also has a 5 year warranty, and the frame has a 15 year warranty.
Stilford S2 Electric Desk is a good bang for the buck
Officework's own electric desk you would not find somewhere else. This Stilford S2 Electric Desk is sturdy, versatile and well priced. It is not perfect. Must say I am pretty fortunate that I have been using electric desk for some time at work and the work ones are really good. So my expectations were somewhat high. I want it very steady, very stable, very smooth strong motor. I don't want to trip over the legs easily and I want it strong without modesty panel or bar in the middle because I have plans to put a drawer underneath which is very de...ep and will run into the panel or bar. After shopping around, I found electric desk to be very expensive. There are some cheap ones out there but you do get what you pay for. IKEA has an electric desk and some found it unsteady and unstable when the table is going up or down. I do love IKEA stuff, they in most cases are well built and very well priced. But I prefer heavier duty in this case. I might not just write on my desk but do some machine work on it. Good Height adjustment is amongst the best at 670-1230mm. Other Officework's offerings like the cheaper Matrix Electric Desk has a range of 705-1155mm. More expensive Rapidspan is 685-1205mm. For short people like kids in the household, 670mm is awesome. Sturdy - This table is heavy (57.3kg) and every part are thick and strong. You really appreciate that if you assemble it yourself. Even the table top isn't light. This desk comes with adjustable feet for levelling but it is so heavy they are not necessary. Smooth motor action - well, I have seen smoother motor but this one is definitely not bad, especially given the motor is mid mount, unlike some that has motor on one side, the table top goes up and down smoothly and won't spill any drinks even if it is full to the brim. There are 4 memory settings.
Bought a Stilford S2 Electric Corner 1800mm Workstation complete with Modesty Panel.
Assembly instructions could've been better for the corner workstation model.
Took 4 hours to assemble correctly due to the bad instructions for the corner version.
Good thing is it doesn't shake or vibrate at standing height like the Varidesk.
Desk lifts and lowers perfectly during the learning process, but after that it refuses to lower without fuss.
It keeps stopping saying that it's hitting something when lowering the desk even when there's NOTHING under the desk nor on the desk.

Know better, choose better.
I found my old desk wasn't deep enough so looked at alternatives. I decided if I was getting a new desk I might as well get a height adjustable model to give me some options. After some research I decided on a white Stilford 1400 x 750mm electric height adjustable desk from Officeworks (only available online). Other widths and colours are available.
Delivery took about a week, which I deemed acceptable. The desk arrived in 3 sturdy cardboard boxes. It took about an hour to put together and have it operational. I found the single motor mechani...
Questions & Answers
We’ve purchased a 3 leg Stillford s2 corner desk and cannot get our benches to sit flush because our legs raise to different heights. We’ve reconstructed the desk 4 times now, done all the usual connection/plug in/ plug out power resets and all are even “067” at the lowest point, but when we take them up, they become out of sync. Officeworks have failed to contact me back for 10 days now so I thought you might have a troubleshoot solution. Have you observed this problem with anyone else? Thanks in advance for your assistance, Nat
Correct me if I am wrong, s2 has 2 motors. If so, I wonder how it keeps one motor in sync of another. I suggest to check if the legs are straight just in case they are not and each leg is presenting different resistance to the motor affecting speed. There are plenty of videos on youtube about resetting desk Maybe one of them has your answer. Good luck!

Thanks so much for your response. Sadly I’ve tried all these processes unsuccessfully. I’m finally in touch with someone from Officeworks so hopefully we can rectify the issue. Take care, legend
Hi, my desk is showing nothing on the screen at all. We have plugged, unplugged, etc still nothing. Any solutions? Other than asking for a new desk?
I assume your Stilford power desk used to work. Only now the display / controller stopped working. First make sure power point has power. Then check power cord and comms cord are plugged in properly and securely. Thank goodness you can’t really plug them in the wrong port unless you really jam them in. The pinout of each cable is different.
Once plugged in current height should be showing on display. If not, suggest this:
1. As per manual, press “S” and up arrow at the same time for 2 seconds to reset the control.
2. Unplug power for a few minutes then plug in again to see if power drains in the circuit resetting the unit.
Failing the above, contact officeworks for support. I reckon these tables / products are oem products so please take what I said with a grain of salt and refer to manual that came with your table for most accurate info.
Thanks David. We've just bought a second one for our other office, so I'm hoping this one will be an easy fix.
I am so glad you like this desk enough to buy a second one. I would too if my wife wants one. Hope your original issue is sorted.
My biggest rant about this table is the control unit, a fairly large box right behind the buttons so I can kick it if I happen to sit more to the left. S2 appears to have unit inside the metal structure hence completely out of the way.
Hi. My desk is in the lowest position and flashing "Set", but when I try the solution above ('S' button and UP for two seconds the only thing that happens is the right hand side of the desk starts to raise while the left doesn't move. Incredibly frustrating. I can't get the left side to move at all. Any help is appreciated.
There’s only one motor which drives two rods or axles that are just slotted without locking mechanism. I am guessing the rod might have moved out of position somehow and not catching the gear mechanism on the motor. Remove side caps and check if the rods came off.
Alternatively the leg is stuck. I have had a bit of rust in the leg and imagine that could cause leg to get stuck. Suggest trying to lift table manually to see if it is indeed stuck. If so, try spray some wd40 to see if you could loosen the leg.
Thanks so much for the response. I did consider some self repair of the axles until I noted that it would void my warranty. Made a call to the place of purchase and was surprised when they had zero interest in helping me fix it and simply asked if I'd like a replacement? I took the replacement and they collected the old one. Interestingly, this new one has a different lift mechanism and doesn't have the axle mechanism described above, but individual motors in each leg. Well see how we go. Thanks again.
Well done. Good they gave you a replacement! I reckon these are oem products so would change over time and won’t immediately equate your experience with there must be a problem with old desk design. Not all motors are made equal. In fact, I wonder about consistency when two motors are used. There must be tolerance they have to build in unless one motor can sync with another. Here is an interesting article about single vs dual motors. Good luck!
