Flexispot Standing Desk Evaluation …Flexispot Eg1/Ef1/Ez1…
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 package that the desk came in was heavy, so bringing it inside was a group effort, however this is just an effect of how durable the Flexispot is.
The convenient cable tray was a bit confusing to set up. In the end, you eventually slip it under screws, which wasn’t extremely clear from the directions.
You will need to buy an anti-fatigue mat to stay comfy, however this is a great 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 thrilled (given that this suggested it was going to be sturdy) and also a little reluctant (because all of us know just how much of a challenge assembling furnishings can be).
Fortunately, with the help of an educational YouTube link, it took me just around 42 minutes to assemble. Scratch that, it took my 11-year-old child, with some supervision from me, from start to finish. The only hang-up I have with assembly was the cable tray, which I found wasn’t discussed well in the instructions.
Once put together, I love the sleek appearance of this desk. I’m confident any of the many varied finishes that it comes in would look terrific in any workplace, 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 simple, effective, and peaceful to change in between sitting and standing as lot of times as you desire throughout the day.
This desk is tough. It can hold up to 335 pounds even while in operation, so if you have a significant desktop (or want to rest on it for some reason) it has you covered. It will also uniformly disperse weight no matter how unbalanced the weight you place on it is, it will not wobble or wiggle.
in that video is pretty kitted out as the desk we’re looking at today is pretty fundamental I tried to get as near that as I might on uplifts site with equivalent 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 comparable desk from uplift I attempt to get as close as possible with the uplift model is really 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 however as you should understand 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 the end of April at the earliest the desktop is an inch thick however it’s this fundamental laminate as you can potentially get doing not have even any cable television grommets for go through the outside carton
for the desktop was not damaged in any way which is absolutely strange due to the fact that I could shoot a 30-second b-roll montage of just the damage and flaws on this desktop scuffed scraped pitted simply very rough male if I had actually acquired this I ‘d have been on the phone with customer care instantly they did likewise managed 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 other side 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 needing to drill that top was really quite uncomplicated the entire thing came together in about 45 minutes and despite the fact that there’s cables running to it from each element to support motorized function strangely absolutely where any sort of cable television management products whatsoever the frame on this unit is a single motor dual stage design versus the double motor three-stage design that comes standard with the uplift desk this can be updated as well to both the dual stage dual motor and a three-stage double motor which presses the cost of the desk up
an extra 70 dollars 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 vary from simply under 28 inches to simply over forty seven 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 enables up-and-down movement plus 3 memory areas with an LED readout to tell 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 sluggish is extremely peaceful as in barely audible this outside a cost would be the one benefit I would give 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 similar uplift model over 35% less expensive even if you upgrade this flexi area test to the dual motor three-stage design it still can be found in a hundred and seventy dollars cheaper than the uplift but less expensive 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 however the lateral stability of this desk the horizontal motion at this price point it’s inappropriate it’s add insult to injury here they include a little security 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 strikes this baffle and the noise is absolutely frustrating to leading things off I decided to add rolling casters to this desk this was a $30 upgrade and 2 of those four casters arrived damaged as well my prepare for this desk at this moment is to lose the desk top and included 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 approximately 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 first that is an investment in quality workplace furnishings that will last you this at best seems like a cheaper imitation of that it simply does not feel quality and the difference in between this desk and my primary desk is night and day do feel free to take a look at their website as well which also feels eerily similar to among their competitors there’s a wealth of devices you can get for the flexi spot desk as much as and consisting of a foot massager and even a fixed stationary bicycle and I might spend another 10 minutes of our precious time covering different options and devices I could but I believe I’m happier that they just sent out a standard desk because as a standard desk I’m not a fan of the quality assurance at this price point and I don’t think slapping on a lot of additionals is the relocation when the core product isn’t what it must be they do offer a 30-day trial if you’re just morbidly curious and they guarantee their desks for three years really desk is 5 years and uplift desk is seven years if you are Flexispot Eg1/Ef1/Ez1
in the market for a sit-stand desk they’re amazing mine’s been a life changer for me both in regards to video gaming and performance however 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 haven’t personally utilized very desk items so I can’t speak on it however their reputation is excellent huge thanks to flexi area 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 gladly replaced the parts that I had a concern with seeing as how both the desktop and the casters showed up harmed but from a consumer viewpoint you ‘d most likely be actually delighted to get this in
