Flexispot Standing Desk Review …Flexispot Desk Put Together…
Cons: What I Didn’t Like About the Flexispot E7
Though the cons on this desk are minimal, here are a few features that I wasn’t necessarily a big fan of:
The bundle that the desk came in was heavy, so bringing it inside was a group effort, but this is just an effect of how sturdy the Flexispot is.
The convenient cable television tray was a little bit complicated to set up. In the end, you ultimately slip it under screws, which wasn’t very clear from the directions.
You will need to purchase an anti-fatigue mat to stay comfortable, but this is a good idea 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 (given that this meant it was going to be tough) and likewise a little reluctant (because we all know just how much of a difficulty putting together furnishings can be).
The good news is, 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 described well in the directions.
When assembled, I enjoy the smooth look of this desk. I’m confident any of the many varied finishes that it is available in would look fantastic in any office, and the adjustable width makes it simple to fit it in even the tiniest of office.
The quiet operation and height memory settings make it easy, effective, and quiet to switch between sitting and standing as sometimes as you want throughout the day.
This desk is tough. It can hold up to 335 lbs even while in operation, so if you have a substantial home computer (or want to sleep 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 quite kitted out as the desk we’re taking a look at today is quite basic I attempted to get as close to that as I might on uplifts website with comparable setups the flexi area desk we’re looking at today will run you about four hundred and ten 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 in fact five inches longer but you can do a lot with five inches boom yes now for openness flexi spot did send this desk out for evaluation but as you must understand by now doesn’t affect my review 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 delivering until the end of April at the earliest the desktop is an inch thick however it’s this fundamental laminate as you can possibly get doing not have even any cable grommets for go through the outdoors carton
for the desktop was not harmed in any way which is utterly unusual since I could shoot a 30-second b-roll montage of simply the damage and defects on this desktop scuffed scraped pitted simply very rough male if I had actually purchased this I ‘d have been on the phone with customer support immediately they did likewise handled to miss out on drilling the pilot holes where you can attach the control box to the desktop a lot of needing to do that myself without unintentionally 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 in fact pretty straightforward the whole thing came together in about 45 minutes and despite the fact that there’s cable televisions going to it from each element to support motorized function strangely absolutely where any type of cable television management products whatsoever the frame on this unit is a single motor dual phase style versus the dual motor three-stage design that comes standard with the uplift desk this can be upgraded as well to both the double stage double motor and a three-stage double motor which pushes the cost of the desk up
an additional 70 bucks the frame is created for a max load of 154 pounds and it moves at a rate at an inch per second the height can range from simply under 28 inches to just over forty seven point 6 inches so a max I ‘d it is more than high sufficient even for me and I remain at 6 foot for this design does come standard with the control board that enables up-and-down motion plus three 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 changed 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 since this isn’t a hit piece this desk is 240 dollars cheaper than the equivalent uplift design over 35% cheaper even if you update this flexi spot test to the double motor three-stage style it still is available in a hundred and seventy dollars more affordable than the uplift however less expensive does not indicate inexpensive 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 absolutely give it that but the lateral stability of this desk the horizontal motion at this cost point it’s unacceptable it’s add fuel to the fire here they include a little safety baffle this little steel piece that installs to the frame and covers a portion of this rotating driveshaft when
this desk sees any lateral movement at all the drive shaft hits the sound and this baffle is definitely frustrating to leading things off I decided to add rolling casters to this desk this was a $30 upgrade and two of those 4 casters showed up harmed also my plan for this desk at this point is to lose the desk top and included completely and replace it with a white laminate lemon table from Ikea and utilize it as an adjustable image 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 needing to adjust complex or heavy slider setups and what I personally pay $400 for that no I lucked out that I discovered uplift initially that is an investment in quality workplace furniture that will last you this at finest feels like a more affordable replica of that it simply doesn’t feel quality and the distinction in between this desk and my main desk is night and day do feel free to check out their website as well which likewise feels strangely similar to one of 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 stationary exercise bike and I could spend another 10 minutes of our valuable time covering different choices and accessories I might but I believe I’m better that they only sent out a basic desk since as a standard desk I’m not a fan of the quality control at this price point and I don’t believe slapping on a lot of bonus is the move when the core item isn’t what it ought to be they do provide a 30-day trial if you’re simply morbidly curious and they warranty their desks for 3 years very desk is five years and uplift desk is seven years if you are Flexispot Desk Put Together
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 productivity but I would invest the extra money it’s gon na take to get into a higher end producer like uplift desk or really desk and I haven’t personally utilized very desk items so I can’t speak on it however their credibility is excellent huge thanks to flexi spot for sending this out for evaluation sadly I can not suggest this unit and for the record I’m a hundred percent sure they would have happily changed the parts that I had a concern with viewing as how both the desktop and the casters got here harmed however from a consumer perspective you ‘d probably be actually thrilled to get this in
