Cons: What I Didn’t Like About the Flexispot E7
The cons on this desk are very little, here are a few features that I wasn’t always a substantial fan of:
The package that the desk can be found in was heavy, so bringing it inside was a group effort, however this is simply a consequence of how strong the Flexispot is.
The practical cable tray was a bit complicated to set up. In the end, you ultimately slip it under screws, which wasn’t really clear from the directions.
You will require to purchase an anti-fatigue mat to stay comfortable, but this is a great 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 excited (given that this suggested it was going to be durable) and also a little reluctant (due to the fact that we all understand how much of an obstacle putting together furniture can be).
Fortunately, with the help of a training YouTube link, it took me just around 42 minutes to put together. Scratch that, it took my 11-year-old child, with some guidance 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 instructions.
As soon as put together, I enjoy the smooth appearance of this desk. I’m positive any of the many varied surfaces that it comes in would look great in any office, and the adjustable width makes it simple to fit it in even the smallest of home offices.
The quiet operation and height memory settings make it simple, efficient, and quiet to change in between sitting and standing as lot of times as you want throughout the day.
Lastly, this desk is strong. It can hold up to 335 pounds even while in operation, so if you have a substantial home computer (or want to rest on it for some reason) it has you covered. It will also uniformly distribute weight no matter how out of balance the weight you put on it is, it won’t wobble or wiggle.
because video is quite kitted out as the desk we’re looking at today is pretty fundamental I attempted to get as near to that as I could on uplifts site with similar configurations the flexi spot desk we’re looking at today will run you about four hundred and 10 dollars versus 6 hundred and fifty for a comparable desk from uplift I try to get as close as possible with the uplift model is really 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 review but as you need to know by now doesn’t affect my review in any way the desktop here is 55 inches broad 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 shipping till completion of April at the earliest the desktop is an inch thick but it’s this basic laminate as you can possibly get lacking even any cable television grommets for pass through the outdoors carton
for the desktop was not damaged in any way which is entirely unusual due to the fact that I might shoot a 30-second b-roll montage of just the damage and flaws on this desktop scuffed scraped pitted just extremely rough guy if I had acquired this I ‘d have been on the phone with customer service immediately they did likewise managed to miss drilling the pilot holes where you can connect the control box to the desktop a great deal of needing to do that myself without mistakenly drilling through the opposite of the desktop so yeah pilot holes in wood screws is how you’re gon na be attaching the surface 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 actually quite uncomplicated the whole thing came together in about 45 minutes and despite the fact that there’s cables going to it from each component to support motorized function strangely absolutely where any sort of cable management products whatsoever the frame on this unit is a single motor dual stage design versus the dual motor three-stage style that comes standard with the uplift desk this can be upgraded as well to both the dual phase double motor and a three-stage double motor which presses the expense of the desk up
an additional 70 dollars the frame is developed 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 just over forty 7 point 6 inches so a max I ‘d it is more than high enough even for me and I remain at 6 foot for this design does come basic 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 has to be changed as the width of the desk is adjusted the motor operation itself while it might be slow is very quiet as in barely audible this outside a price would be the one advantage I would offer this unit over the uplift desk and I wish to take care here because this isn’t a hit piece this desk is 240 dollars less expensive than the similar uplift design over 35% more affordable even if you upgrade this flexi area test to the double motor three-stage design it still is available in a hundred and seventy dollars more affordable than the uplift however cheaper does not imply low-cost this desk is still over four hundred dollars if I had actually paid over $400 for this desk I ‘d have an issue with that the front to back stability of this desk is solid even if max height I’ll definitely offer it that but the lateral stability of this desk the horizontal motion at this rate point it’s unacceptable it’s rub salt in the wound here they consist of a little safety baffle this little steel piece that installs to the frame and covers a portion of this turning driveshaft when
this desk sees any lateral movement at all the drive shaft hits this baffle and the noise is definitely frustrating to top things off I chose to include rolling casters to this desk this was a $30 upgrade and 2 of those 4 casters got here harmed as well my plan for this desk at this moment is to lose the desk top and featured completely 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 approximately 63 inches wide and 31 and a half inches deep so this will roll around the studio make it simpler to film 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 first that is a financial investment in quality office furnishings that will last you this at best feels like a cheaper imitation of that it just does not feel quality and the distinction between this desk and my primary desk is night and day do do not hesitate to check out their website also which likewise feels eerily comparable to among their competitors there’s a wealth of accessories you can get for the flexi spot desk approximately and including a foot massager and even a fixed stationary bicycle and I might spend another 10 minutes of our precious time covering numerous choices and devices I might however I think I’m happier that they just sent out a basic desk since as a basic desk I’m not a fan of the quality assurance at this rate point and I don’t think slapping on a bunch of extras is the relocation when the core product isn’t what it should be they do provide a 30-day trial if you’re just morbidly curious and they warranty their desks for three years really desk is 5 years and uplift desk is seven years if you are Flexispot Customer Support
in the market for a sit-stand desk they’re fantastic mine’s been a life changer for me both in terms of video gaming and efficiency but I would invest the extra money it’s gon na take to enter a higher end maker like uplift desk or really desk and I have not personally utilized very desk items so I can’t speak on it but their reputation is great huge thanks to flexi area for sending this out for review regrettably I can not recommend this system and for the record I’m a hundred percent sure they would have gladly replaced the parts that I had a concern with viewing as how both the desktop and the casters got here damaged however from a consumer viewpoint you ‘d most likely be really delighted to get this in
