What kind of person spends 200 dollars on a coffee mug and $149.00 on a office desk?
There's hundred percent a locking mechanism. Who tf designs something that bares load on a motor. The motors not directly holding the desk up. Stop talking outta your ass
The website Q/A says:

Is there any way to purchase the motor and control assembly?

A shopper on May 29, 2019

BEST ANSWER: Hi, we do not have the component parts for sale on their own. The product is warrantied and quite robust so those parts aren't intended to be consumable.

Well that's a bummer. If motor fails you have a boat anchor?



The other side of it is if there are multiple motors doesn't that mean each motor is doing less work and wouldn't less strain on the motor potentially mean longer life for the motors?

Quote from TenseDeer723 :
For those of you wondering whether the dual-motor is worth it: keep in mind that 2 motors just means 1 more thing that can go wrong. These cheap motors are not the pinnacle of reliability. Using two of these cheap motors at once just increases the likelihood of failure. If/when one motor fails during lifting, your entire desk will end up tilted, and this could cause your $5000 desktop, your $1700 ultrawide HDR monitor, $400 Yeti microphone, $200 coffee mug, $90 Razer mouse, and $399 Cherry Red keyboard to hit the ground.

A single motor design will likely be slower in lifting the desk than a dual motor design, but a single motor means one fewer failure point, as the transmission rod that connects the single motor to opposite leg of the desk is not likely to fail (it's just a metal shaft). If/when the single motor fails, the desk will simply stay stuck in place and completely level instead of proceeding to dump your stuff on the ground.

The most reliable and affordable standing desk, in my opinion, is the Home Depot Husky adjustable height workbench, which is sub-$200 at Home Depot before any sales or coupons. Throw in an electric screwdriver or electric drill-driver with a 10mm hex bit and you'll have motorized your standing desk. If/when your electric screwdriver or electric drill-driver fails, you'll be able to fix the issue without tossing the entire desk.
Looks like the Monoprice desks has a weight capacity of 176 lbs and you might have been at or over that limit.

Just my two cents, I'd rather spend a bit more for a longer warranty period (1 year from Monoprice).

Desktop: 80 pounds
55" TV: 30 pounds
Keyboard, microphone, webcam, mouse, etc: 20 pounds max

It's actually pretty hard to hit the specified weight limit of 170 pounds.

Any good desktop suggestions? Are the monoprice tops any good? For some reason for the the 6ft top that is $65 and weighs 45 lbs they want $193 to ship it with fedex trucking as the only option and I'm only 100 miles away from their warehouse. Doesn't make sense.

Ikea has a few good table tops. A popular option is their Karlby kitchen countertop.
