Bought 2 for my home office and for my "real" office. Works just as it should and did fit perfectly in the original IKEA box. Shipping took like 6 weeks, mostly due to customs and toll, I live in Sweden. I would bye it again if I got more desks and it's worth the waiting.

Took a bit of fiddling to get right, but fab once working!
So I had multiple existential crises when the megadesk finally arrived as I really struggled to get it going, but once I did, it worked wonderfully!
Some of my findings:
1. There is a white piece of plastic which goes over the key button in order for the key to be registered. Mine flew out of the case when I finally got it open, and I didn't realise it was missing until later 2. I was convinced that I'd broken the ribbon for a while, as the only sounds I was able to get out of it where when the "up" button was pressed. I'd moved my table as far up as it could go so I could unscrew and work on the underside of the table, so I thought I'd either broken the cable or otherwise shorted the motor. Scary! 3. After playing around with the megadesk, I then struggled to get my original controller to work(!) 4. However after swapping the cables around and plugging the original controller into the other leg, and then running calibration, I was able to regain control of the table 5. I then re-ran the calibration to reset the table, then plugged in the megadesk, and - lo-and-behold - it worked!
I bought the megadesk a week ago and just today, I don't know what happened but the motor stopped responded, however there still beeps corresponding to the amount of times I pressed it. I have tried all the troubleshooting steps, but it does not seem to fix the issue, also the chip was quite warm when plugged in and you can feel it through the encasing. I have written a review because for some reason sending a message loaded the word "forbidden" and so I could not send it. I'll gladly change all the ratings to a 5 star if I can get a solution for the issue. Thanks so much!

I'm not sure why you are unable to send messages - if you reach out to Tindie support they can further assist. After which, we can hopefully converse to troubleshoot further.
