Flexispot Standing Desk Evaluation …Flexispot 60 X 30…
Cons: What I Didn’t Like About the Flexispot E7
Though the cons on this desk are minimal, here are a couple of features that I wasn’t necessarily a substantial fan of:
The bundle that the desk was available in was heavy, so bringing it inside was a group effort, but this is just an effect of how tough the Flexispot is.
The hassle-free cable tray was a bit complicated to install. In the end, you eventually slip it under screws, which wasn’t very clear from the directions.
You will need to buy an anti-fatigue mat to remain comfy, however this is a good concept for any standing desks, so I can’t fault Flexispot for that.
When it showed up and I saw how heavy it was, I was both thrilled (since this implied it was going to be sturdy) and also a little hesitant (because we all understand how much of a challenge putting together furnishings can be).
Fortunately, with the help of an instructional YouTube link, it took me just around 42 minutes to put together. Scratch that, it took my 11-year-old daughter, with some guidance from me, from start to finish. The only hang-up I have with assembly was the cable tray, which I found wasn’t explained well in the directions.
As soon as put together, I like the streamlined look of this desk. I’m confident any of the many diverse finishes that it comes in would look fantastic in any office, and the adjustable width makes it easy to fit it in even the smallest of office.
The quiet operation and height memory settings make it simple, efficient, and quiet to switch in between sitting and standing as many times as you desire throughout the day.
This desk is sturdy. It can hold up to 335 pounds even while in operation, so if you have a significant desktop (or wish to take a nap on it for some reason) it has you covered. It will also equally distribute weight no matter how unbalanced the weight you place on it is, it won’t wiggle or wobble.
in that video is pretty kitted out as the desk we’re taking a look at today is quite basic I attempted to get as near to that as I could on uplifts website with similar configurations the flexi spot 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 attempt to get as close as possible with the uplift model is actually five inches longer however you can do a lot with 5 inches boom yes now for transparency flexi spot did send this desk out for evaluation but as you should understand by now doesn’t impact my evaluation in any way the desktop here is 55 inches wide 28 inches deep and comes as a $40 upgrade from the base size of 48 by thirty sixty by thirty is coming however it’s not shipping up until completion of April at the earliest the desktop is an inch thick however it’s this standard laminate as you can perhaps get lacking even any cable television grommets for travel through the outdoors container
for the desktop was not harmed in any way which is entirely strange since I could shoot a 30-second b-roll montage of just the damage and defects on this desktop scuffed scraped pitted simply incredibly rough guy if I had bought this I ‘d have been on the phone with customer care immediately they did also managed to miss drilling the pilot holes where you can attach the control box to the desktop a lot of needing 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 attaching the surface area to the frame that’s a far cry from the ingrained metal inserts that we saw on the uplift desk so assembly aside from having to drill that top was in fact pretty simple the entire thing came together in about 45 minutes and despite the fact that there’s cables going to it from each part to support motorized function unusually absolutely where any type of cable management materials whatsoever the frame on this system is a single motor dual stage style versus the dual motor three-stage style that comes requirement with the uplift desk this can be updated too to both the double phase double motor and a three-stage dual motor which pushes the cost of the desk up
an extra 70 bucks the frame is developed for a max load of 154 pounds and it moves at a rate at an inch per second the height can vary from simply under 28 inches to just over forty 7 point 6 inches so a max I ‘d it is more than high enough even for me and I stay at 6 foot for this model does come standard with the control board that allows for up-and-down movement plus 3 memory areas with an LED readout to inform you the desk height the single motor style uses this drive shaft assembly which needs to be changed as the width of the desk is adjusted the motor operation itself while it might be slow is extremely quiet as in barely audible this outside a price would be the one advantage I would provide this unit over the uplift desk and I want to take care here because this isn’t a hit piece this desk is 240 dollars more affordable than the similar uplift design over 35% more affordable even if you upgrade this flexi spot test to the dual motor three-stage style it still is available in a hundred and seventy dollars more affordable than the uplift however more affordable does not suggest cheap 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 solid even if max height I’ll certainly offer it that but the lateral stability of this desk the horizontal movement at this rate point it’s inappropriate it’s add fuel to the fire here they include a little safety 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 hits this baffle and the sound is definitely infuriating to leading things off I chose to add rolling casters to this desk this was a $30 upgrade and 2 of those 4 casters got here damaged also my prepare for this desk at this moment is to lose the desk top and came with completely and replace it with a white laminate lemon table from Ikea and utilize it as an adjustable photo 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 much easier to film products without needing 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 a financial investment in quality office furniture that will last you this at best feels like a less expensive replica of that it just does not feel quality and the difference in between this desk and my main desk is night and day do do not hesitate to take a look at their site as well which also feels strangely comparable to among their competitors there’s a wealth of devices you can get for the flexi area desk as much as and consisting of a foot massager and even a fixed stationary bicycle and I could invest another 10 minutes of our valuable time covering numerous choices and accessories I might but I believe I’m happier that they only sent a standard desk since as a standard desk I’m not a fan of the quality assurance at this cost point and I don’t think slapping on a bunch of additionals is the move when the core product isn’t what it must be they do provide a 30-day trial if you’re just morbidly curious and they guarantee their desks for 3 years really desk is 5 years and uplift desk is 7 years if you are Flexispot 60 X 30
in the market for a sit-stand desk they’re incredible mine’s been a life changer for me both in terms of gaming and efficiency however I would spend the additional money it’s gon na take to enter a higher end manufacturer like uplift desk or very desk and I haven’t personally used really desk products so I can’t speak on it but their credibility is excellent big thanks to flexi spot for sending this out for review unfortunately I can not suggest this system and for the record I’m a hundred percent sure they would have gladly replaced the parts that I had a problem with viewing as how both the desktop and the casters showed up damaged but from a consumer standpoint you ‘d most likely be actually excited to get this in
