Flexispot Standing Desk Review …Flexispot E8 Bamboo…
Cons: What I Didn’t Like About the Flexispot E7
Though the cons on this desk are very little, here are a couple of functions that I wasn’t necessarily a big 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 durable the Flexispot is.
The convenient cable television 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 directions.
You will require to buy an anti-fatigue mat to remain comfy, but this is an excellent concept for any standing desks, so I can’t fault Flexispot for that.
When it got here and I saw how heavy it was, I was both excited (because this suggested it was going to be strong) and likewise a little reluctant (since we all know just how much of a difficulty assembling furniture can be).
Fortunately, with the help of a training YouTube link, it took me only around 42 minutes to put together. Scratch that, it took my 11-year-old child, with some supervision from me, from start to finish. The only problem I have with assembly was the cable television tray, which I found wasn’t explained well in the instructions.
As soon as assembled, I love the smooth appearance 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 simple to fit it in even the tiniest of office.
The quiet operation and height memory settings make it easy, efficient, and peaceful to change between sitting and standing as often times as you want throughout the day.
This desk is durable. It can hold up to 335 lbs even while in operation, so if you have a hefty home computer (or wish to take a nap on it for some reason) it has you covered. It will also uniformly distribute weight no matter how unbalanced the weight you place on it is, it won’t wiggle or wobble.
because 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 might on uplifts website with equivalent setups the flexi spot desk we’re taking a look at today will run you about four hundred and ten dollars versus 6 hundred and fifty for a similar desk from uplift I attempt to get as close as possible with the uplift model is in fact 5 inches longer but you can do a lot with five inches boom yes now for transparency flexi spot did send this desk out for review but as you need to understand 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 till completion of April at the earliest the desktop is an inch thick however it’s this standard laminate as you can potentially get doing not have even any cable grommets for pass through the outside container
for the desktop was not damaged in any way which is utterly strange because I might shoot a 30-second b-roll montage of just the damage and defects on this desktop scuffed scraped pitted simply extremely rough man if I had bought this I ‘d have been on the phone with customer care immediately they did also managed to miss out on drilling the pilot holes where you can attach the control box to the desktop a great deal of needing to do that myself without accidentally drilling through the other side 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 ingrained metal inserts that we saw on the uplift desk so assembly aside from having to drill that top was really quite simple the entire 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 sort of cable management products whatsoever the frame on this unit is a single motor double phase style versus the dual motor three-stage design that comes requirement with the uplift desk this can be updated also to both the double stage dual motor and a three-stage dual motor which pushes the expense of the desk up
an extra 70 bucks the frame is created for a max load of 154 pounds and it moves at a rate at an inch per 2nd the height can range from just under 28 inches to just over forty 7 point 6 inches so a max I ‘d it is more than tall sufficient even for me and I remain at 6 foot for this design does come standard with the control panel that allows for up-and-down movement plus 3 memory areas with an LED readout to tell you the desk height the single motor style utilizes this drive shaft assembly which needs to be adjusted 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 rate would be the one benefit I would give this unit over the uplift desk and I wish to beware here since this isn’t a hit piece this desk is 240 dollars cheaper than the similar uplift design over 35% more affordable even if you upgrade this flexi area test to the double motor three-stage style it still comes in a hundred and seventy dollars less expensive than the uplift but less expensive does not imply inexpensive this desk is still over four hundred dollars if I had 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 definitely provide it that however the lateral stability of this desk the horizontal motion at this price point it’s undesirable it’s rub salt in the wound here they include 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 motion at all the drive shaft hits the noise and this baffle is absolutely shocking to leading things off I chose to add rolling casters to this desk this was a $30 upgrade and two of those four casters arrived harmed also my plan for this desk at this moment is to lose the desk top and came with all together and change 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 broad 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 discovered uplift first that is an investment in quality office furniture that will last you this at best seems like a more affordable replica of that it simply doesn’t feel quality and the difference between this desk and my primary desk is night and day do do not hesitate to check out their website too which also feels eerily comparable to one of their rivals there’s a wealth of devices you can get for the flexi area desk approximately and consisting of a foot massager and even a fixed stationary bicycle and I could invest another 10 minutes of our valuable time covering different alternatives and devices I might however I think I’m better that they only sent a standard desk due to the fact that as a standard desk I’m not a fan of the quality assurance at this cost point and I do not think slapping on a lot of bonus is the relocation when the core product isn’t what it should be they do use a 30-day trial if you’re just morbidly curious and they guarantee their desks for three years really desk is five years and uplift desk is seven years if you are Flexispot E8 Bamboo
in the market for a sit-stand desk they’re fantastic mine’s been a life changer for me both in regards to gaming and productivity but I would spend the additional money it’s gon na take to enter into a higher end manufacturer like uplift desk or really desk and I have not personally used extremely desk products so I can’t speak on it however their credibility is great huge thanks to flexi spot for sending this out for review unfortunately I can not advise this unit and for the record I’m a hundred percent sure they would have happily changed the parts that I had an issue with viewing as how both the desktop and the casters arrived harmed but from a client perspective you ‘d most likely be truly delighted to get this in
