Best of both worlds
Seems like a standing desk is great for banging out emails other quick hits. But prolonged focus requires sitting. The way I see it, standing boosts your physical energy but sitting drives your mental energy. So I can see the value of an adjustable desk. On certain gloomy Mondays, the fetal position desk (Thank you Onion!) makes a lot of sense.

Haven't tried, but know several who do
I haven't really tried it yet, mostly due to cost for furniture from our corporate supplier, but I have several staff who have both a sitting location and a standing location in their office space at the office. They all like the standing option and probably use it as much as half the time. If it fits in the budget and physical space, I would recommend it.
