Flexispot Standing Desk Review …Flexispot 28…
Cons: What I Didn’t Like About the Flexispot E7
The cons on this desk are very little, here are a couple of functions that I wasn’t always a big fan of:
The package that the desk can be found in was heavy, so bringing it inside was a group effort, but this is just a repercussion of how strong the Flexispot is.
The practical cable tray was a little bit confusing to set up. In the end, you ultimately slip it under screws, which wasn’t extremely clear from the guidelines.
You will need to buy an anti-fatigue mat to stay comfortable, however this is an excellent concept for any standing desks, so I can’t fault Flexispot for that.
When it arrived and I saw how heavy it was, I was both fired up (because this indicated it was going to be durable) and likewise a little reluctant (because all of us know just how much of a difficulty putting together furniture can be).
The good news is, with the help of an educational YouTube link, it took me only around 42 minutes to assemble. Scratch that, it took my 11-year-old daughter, with some supervision from me, from start to finish. The only problem I have with assembly was the cable tray, which I found wasn’t explained well in the directions.
When assembled, I like the streamlined look of this desk. I’m positive any of the many diverse surfaces that it is available in would look excellent in any office, and the adjustable width makes it easy to fit it in even the tiniest of home offices.
The quiet operation and height memory settings make it easy, effective, and quiet to switch between sitting and standing as many times as you want throughout the day.
Finally, this desk is sturdy. It can hold up to 335 lbs even while in operation, so if you have a significant desktop (or wish to sleep on it for some reason) it has you covered. It will also evenly distribute weight no matter how unbalanced the weight you put on it is, it will not wobble or wiggle.
because video is pretty kitted out as the desk we’re looking at today is pretty fundamental I tried to get as near to that as I could on uplifts site with similar configurations the flexi area desk we’re taking a look at today will run you about four hundred and 10 dollars versus six hundred and fifty for a similar desk from uplift I try to get as close as possible with the uplift design is in fact five inches longer but you can do a lot with 5 inches boom yes now for openness flexi spot did send this desk out for evaluation however as you must know by now doesn’t affect my evaluation in any way the desktop here is 55 inches large 28 inches deep and comes as a $40 upgrade from the base size of 48 by thirty sixty by thirty is coming but it’s not delivering up until completion of April at the earliest the desktop is an inch thick but it’s this fundamental laminate as you can potentially get lacking even any cable television grommets for pass through the outside container
for the desktop was not harmed in any way which is absolutely unusual since I might shoot a 30-second b-roll montage of just the damage and defects on this desktop scuffed scraped pitted simply very rough male if I had purchased this I ‘d have been on the phone with customer support right away they did likewise managed to miss drilling the pilot holes where you can attach the control box to the desktop a lot of having to do that myself without inadvertently drilling through the opposite of the desktop so yeah pilot holes in wood screws is how you’re gon na be connecting the surface to the frame that’s a far cry from the embedded metal inserts that we saw on the uplift desk so assembly aside from needing to drill that top was actually quite straightforward the whole thing came together in about 45 minutes and despite the fact that there’s cable televisions going to it from each component to support motorized function oddly absolutely where any kind of cable management products whatsoever the frame on this unit is a single motor double phase design versus the dual motor three-stage design that comes requirement with the uplift desk this can be upgraded too to both the double phase dual motor and a three-stage dual motor which pushes the cost of the desk up
an extra 70 dollars the frame is designed for a max load of 154 pounds and it moves at a rate at an inch per 2nd the height can vary from just under 28 inches to simply over forty seven point 6 inches so a max I ‘d it is more than high sufficient even for me and I stay at 6 foot for this design does come basic with the control panel that allows for up-and-down motion plus three memory spots with an LED readout to inform you the desk height the single motor style utilizes this drive shaft assembly which has to be changed as the width of the desk is changed the motor operation itself while it might be slow is very quiet as in barely audible this outside a cost would be the one benefit I would offer this system over the uplift desk and I want to be careful here because this isn’t a hit piece this desk is 240 dollars more affordable than the equivalent uplift design over 35% less expensive even if you upgrade this flexi spot test to the double motor three-stage design it still comes in a hundred and seventy dollars cheaper than the uplift but less expensive does not indicate low-cost this desk is still over four hundred dollars if I had actually paid over $400 for this desk I ‘d have a problem with that the front to back stability of this desk is strong even if max height I’ll definitely offer it that but the lateral stability of this desk the horizontal motion at this cost point it’s undesirable it’s add fuel to the fire here they include a little security baffle this little steel piece that mounts to the frame and covers a portion of this rotating driveshaft when
this desk sees any lateral motion at all the drive shaft strikes this baffle and the noise is definitely shocking to leading things off I chose to add rolling casters to this desk this was a $30 upgrade and 2 of those four casters arrived harmed as well my plan for this desk at this point is to lose the desk top and came with all together and replace it with a white laminate lemon table from Ikea and use it as an adjustable picture table which you can’t do this frame will accommodate desktops as much as 63 inches wide and 31 and a half inches deep so this will roll around the studio make it simpler to movie items without having to change complex or heavy slider setups and what I personally pay $400 for that no I lucked out that I found uplift initially that is an investment in quality workplace furniture that will last you this at finest feels like a cheaper replica of that it simply doesn’t feel quality and the difference in between this desk and my primary desk is night and day do feel free to have a look at their site as well which likewise feels strangely similar to among their competitors there’s a wealth of accessories you can get for the flexi area desk approximately and consisting of a foot massager and even a fixed stationary bicycle and I might spend another 10 minutes of our valuable time covering various alternatives and accessories I might however I believe I’m happier that they just sent out a fundamental desk because as a standard desk I’m not a fan of the quality assurance at this rate point and I do not believe slapping on a bunch of bonus is the relocation when the core product isn’t what it should be they do offer a 30-day trial if you’re simply morbidly curious and they guarantee their desks for 3 years extremely desk is 5 years and uplift desk is 7 years if you are Flexispot 28
in the market for a sit-stand desk they’re remarkable mine’s been a life changer for me both in regards to gaming and productivity however I would spend the additional money it’s gon na require to enter a greater end producer like uplift desk or very desk and I have not personally utilized really desk products so I can’t speak on it however their reputation is very good huge thanks to flexi area for sending this out for review regrettably I can not suggest this unit and for the record I’m a hundred percent sure they would have happily replaced the parts that I had a problem with viewing as how both the desktop and the casters got here damaged but from a customer perspective you ‘d most likely be truly thrilled to get this in
