I'd compare it to an electric pencil sharpener, but at a slightly lower pitch.
Your usage might be different, but I've found that I typically only adjust once or twice a day. I start out sitting, raise it during the middle of the day, and put it back down in the afternoon. Anything more than that starts to feel like noodling with the desk instead of working.
IIRC, Joel Spolsky's company has these as standard issue for all employees, and I'm pretty sure you can find more about the practical aspects of using them from one of his blog posts. In fact, there was a classic prank (video now deleted it seems) where they wired a remote control for one of the desks and told a new employee it was voice controlled. The prank went on forever and looked totally real. Pure genius.
Anyway, here's some video of the desk in action[^]. I have the standard 78" model and you could easily put three 27" monitors side-by-side on it.
Guess it's time for me to dig out the photos and document this setup.
