Flexispot Standing Desk Review …Flexispot M Series…
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 big fan of:
The bundle that the desk was available in was heavy, so bringing it inside was a group effort, however this is just a repercussion of how durable the Flexispot is.
The practical cable television tray was a bit confusing to install. In the end, you ultimately slip it under screws, which wasn’t very clear from the instructions.
You will require to purchase an anti-fatigue mat to stay comfortable, however this is an excellent idea 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 fired up (given that this implied it was going to be sturdy) and likewise a little reluctant (because we all understand just how much of a challenge assembling furnishings can be).
Thankfully, 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 supervision from me, from start to finish. The only problem I have with assembly was the cable television tray, which I discovered wasn’t explained well in the directions.
When put together, I like the sleek appearance of this desk. I’m confident any of the many varied finishes that it can be found in would look terrific in any workplace, and the adjustable width makes it easy to fit it in even the smallest of home offices.
The quiet operation and height memory settings make it easy, effective, and peaceful to switch 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 large desktop (or want to sleep on it for some reason) it has you covered. It will likewise equally disperse weight no matter how out of balance the weight you put 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 pretty basic I attempted to get as near that as I might on uplifts site with similar setups 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 similar desk from uplift I attempt to get as close as possible with the uplift model is actually 5 inches longer however you can do a lot with 5 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 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 delivering till the end of April at the earliest the desktop is an inch thick but it’s this fundamental laminate as you can possibly get lacking even any cable television grommets for travel through the outside container
for the desktop was not harmed in any way which is entirely strange because I could shoot a 30-second b-roll montage of just the damage and flaws on this desktop scuffed scraped pitted just super rough male if I had bought this I ‘d have been on the phone with customer service instantly they did also handled to miss out on drilling the pilot holes where you can connect the control box to the desktop a lot 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 connecting the surface area 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 quite simple 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 oddly absolutely where any kind of cable television management products whatsoever the frame on this unit is a single motor dual stage design versus the dual motor three-stage design that comes standard with the uplift desk this can be updated as well to both the dual phase double motor and a three-stage double motor which pushes the cost of the desk up
an additional 70 bucks the frame is designed for a max load of 154 pounds and it moves at a rate at an inch per second the height can range from just under 28 inches to simply over forty 7 point six inches so a max I ‘d it is more than high adequate even for me and I stay at 6 foot for this model does come standard with the control board that allows for up-and-down motion plus 3 memory spots with an LED readout to inform you the desk height the single motor style uses this drive shaft assembly which has to be adjusted as the width of the desk is changed the motor operation itself while it might be slow is really peaceful as in barely audible this outside a cost would be the one advantage I would give this system over the uplift desk and I wish to take care here since this isn’t a hit piece this desk is 240 dollars less expensive than the similar uplift design over 35% less expensive even if you upgrade this flexi area test to the double motor three-stage design it still can be found in a hundred and seventy dollars less expensive than the uplift but cheaper doesn’t mean cheap 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 strong even if max height I’ll absolutely give it that however the lateral stability of this desk the horizontal movement at this price point it’s inappropriate it’s add fuel to the fire here they consist of a little security baffle this little steel piece that mounts to the frame and covers a portion of this turning driveshaft when
this desk sees any lateral motion at all the drive shaft strikes the noise and this baffle is absolutely frustrating to leading things off I chose to add rolling casters to this desk this was a $30 upgrade and two of those 4 casters showed up damaged also my plan 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 image table which you can’t do this frame will accommodate desktops approximately 63 inches large and 31 and a half inches deep so this will roll around the studio make it much easier 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 initially that is a financial investment in quality office furniture that will last you this at best feels like a less expensive imitation of that it simply doesn’t feel quality and the distinction in between this desk and my main desk is night and day do do not hesitate to check out their site also which also feels eerily similar to one of their competitors there’s a wealth of devices you can get for the flexi area desk up to and including a foot massager and even a stationary exercise bike and I might invest another 10 minutes of our valuable time covering numerous choices and accessories I might however I think I’m better that they only sent out a basic desk due to the fact that as a standard desk I’m not a fan of the quality assurance at this price point and I don’t believe 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 guarantee their desks for three years really desk is 5 years and uplift desk is 7 years if you are Flexispot M Series
in the market for a sit-stand desk they’re amazing mine’s been a life changer for me both in terms of gaming and performance however I would invest the money it’s gon na require to enter into a greater end manufacturer like uplift desk or really desk and I haven’t personally utilized extremely desk items so I can’t speak on it however their track record is great huge thanks to flexi area for sending this out for evaluation unfortunately I can not advise this system and for the record I’m a hundred percent sure they would have happily replaced the parts that I had a concern with viewing as how both the desktop and the casters arrived damaged however from a customer perspective you ‘d probably be actually delighted to get this in
