Flexispot Standing Desk Evaluation …Flexispot Eq3…
Cons: What I Didn’t Like About the Flexispot E7
The cons on this desk are minimal, here are a few features that I wasn’t always a huge fan of:
The bundle that the desk came in was heavy, so bringing it inside was a group effort, however this is simply a repercussion of how tough the Flexispot is.
The practical cable tray was a bit confusing to set up. In the end, you eventually slip it under screws, which wasn’t very clear from the instructions.
You will need to buy an anti-fatigue mat to remain comfy, however this is a good idea 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 ecstatic (considering that this indicated it was going to be strong) and likewise a little hesitant (since we all know just how much of a challenge assembling furniture can be).
The good news is, with the help of an educational 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.
Once put together, I like the streamlined appearance of this desk. I’m positive any of the many diverse surfaces that it can be found 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 peaceful operation and height memory settings make it easy, efficient, and peaceful to change in between sitting and standing as sometimes as you desire throughout the day.
This desk is strong. It can hold up to 335 lbs even while in operation, so if you have a substantial desktop computer (or want to sleep on it for some reason) it has you covered. It will likewise uniformly distribute weight no matter how out of balance the weight you place on it is, it will not wiggle or wobble.
because video is pretty kitted out as the desk we’re looking at today is quite basic I attempted to get as near that as I could on uplifts website with similar configurations the flexi spot desk we’re looking at today will run you about four hundred and 10 dollars versus six hundred and fifty for a comparable desk from uplift I try to get as close as possible with the uplift model is actually five inches longer but you can do a lot with five inches boom yes now for transparency flexi spot did send this desk out for evaluation but as you must understand by now doesn’t affect 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 but it’s not shipping till the end of April at the earliest the desktop is an inch thick however it’s this standard laminate as you can possibly get doing not have even any cable television grommets for go through the outdoors carton
for the desktop was not harmed in any way which is absolutely strange since I might shoot a 30-second b-roll montage of simply the damage and defects on this desktop scuffed scraped pitted just very rough man if I had actually bought this I ‘d have been on the phone with customer service right away they did likewise managed to miss drilling the pilot holes where you can connect the control box to the desktop a great deal of having 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 connecting the surface to the frame that’s a far cry from the embedded metal inserts that we saw on the uplift desk so assembly aside from having to drill that top was really pretty straightforward the entire thing came together in about 45 minutes and despite the fact that there’s cable televisions running to it from each element to support motorized function oddly absolutely where any type of cable television management materials whatsoever the frame on this unit is a single motor dual phase style versus the dual motor three-stage style that comes standard with the uplift desk this can be updated too to both the dual stage double motor and a three-stage dual motor which pushes 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 range from just under 28 inches to just over forty 7 point 6 inches so a max I ‘d it is more than high adequate even for me and I remain at 6 foot for this model does come standard with the control board that permits 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 very quiet as in barely audible this outside a rate would be the one advantage I would provide this unit over the uplift desk and I want to be careful here because this isn’t a hit piece this desk is 240 dollars cheaper than the similar uplift design over 35% less expensive even if you upgrade this flexi spot test to the dual motor three-stage design it still can be found in a hundred and seventy dollars cheaper than the uplift however less expensive does not suggest inexpensive this desk is still over four hundred dollars if I had paid over $400 for this desk I ‘d have an issue with that the front to back stability of this desk is strong even if max height I’ll certainly provide it that however the lateral stability of this desk the horizontal motion at this rate point it’s inappropriate it’s rub salt in the wound here they include a little security baffle this little steel piece that mounts to the frame and covers a part of this rotating driveshaft when
this desk sees any lateral motion at all the drive shaft hits this baffle and the noise is definitely infuriating to leading things off I chose to include rolling casters to this desk this was a $30 upgrade and 2 of those four casters showed up damaged too my prepare for this desk at this point is to lose the desk top and came with entirely and change it with a white laminate lemon table from Ikea and use it as an adjustable photo table which you can’t do this frame will accommodate desktops up to 63 inches broad and 31 and a half inches deep so this will roll around the studio make it much easier 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 office furnishings 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 main desk is night and day do do not hesitate to take a look at their site also which also feels eerily similar to one of their rivals there’s a wealth of accessories you can get for the flexi spot desk approximately and consisting of a foot massager and even a fixed exercise bike and I could spend another 10 minutes of our precious time covering various choices and accessories I could but I believe I’m happier that they just sent out a basic desk since as a fundamental desk I’m not a fan of the quality assurance at this rate point and I don’t believe slapping on a lot of bonus is the relocation 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 service warranty their desks for 3 years really desk is 5 years and uplift desk is seven years if you are Flexispot Eq3
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 productivity but I would spend the additional money it’s gon na require to enter into a greater end producer like uplift desk or really desk and I haven’t personally used very desk products so I can’t speak on it however their credibility is great huge thanks to flexi area for sending this out for review unfortunately I can not recommend 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 viewing as how both the desktop and the casters arrived damaged but from a customer perspective you ‘d probably be actually thrilled to get this in
