Accessorize Your SmartDesk Connect for Maximum Productivity

The SmartDesk Connect is sleek, modern, and designed to free your workspace from distractions like wire clutter and unnecessary computer parts. The SmartDesk team took the headache out of DIY multiple monitor setups and engineered an all-in-one standing workstation so that you no longer need to worry about unscrambling and assembling all the parts, pieces, and tech involved in setting up your workstation. 

As the only turnkey all-in-one standing desk with three 4K Ultra HD monitors, two high-quality stereo speakers, a wireless phone charger, and built-in cord management, the SmartDesk Connect is the most efficient workspace solution available on the market. 

Unlike traditional setups, the SmartDesk Connect revolutionizes the way you work and boosts productivity. The accessories you pick for your SmartDesk Connect can enhance this even further. The comfort, design, and durability of your accessories will either increase or impair the speed at which you complete your work. If you use a standing desk like the SmartDesk Connect, it's also necessary to ensure that your accessories are designed to keep your workstation healthy and supportive.

While the SmartDesk Connect includes essential tech components like monitors right out of the box, there are even more options to accessorize the workstation to accelerate your productivity. You can use most types of peripheral items with the SmartDesk Connect, but we've made shopping for them a little easier by testing and certifying the following ones for you:
