Flexispot Standing Desk Evaluation …Flexispot M2B…
Cons: What I Didn’t Like About the Flexispot E7
The cons on this desk are very little, here are a couple of features that I wasn’t necessarily a substantial fan of:
The package that the desk came in was heavy, so bringing it inside was a group effort, but this is simply an effect of how strong the Flexispot is.
The convenient cable tray was a bit complicated to install. In the end, you eventually slip it under screws, which wasn’t really clear from the directions.
You will require to purchase an anti-fatigue mat to remain 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 ecstatic (since this meant it was going to be sturdy) and also a little hesitant (due to the fact that we all understand how much of a difficulty assembling furnishings can be).
Thankfully, with the help of an instructional YouTube link, it took me only 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 discovered wasn’t described well in the instructions.
Once put together, I love the streamlined look of this desk. I’m positive any of the many diverse surfaces that it comes in would look excellent in any office, and the adjustable width makes it easy to fit it in even the smallest of office.
The quiet operation and height memory settings make it simple, effective, and quiet to switch between sitting and standing as lot of times as you want throughout the day.
This desk is strong. It can hold up to 335 pounds 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 place on it is, it will not wobble or wiggle.
in that video is pretty kitted out as the desk we’re taking a look at today is pretty basic I attempted to get as near to that as I could on uplifts site with similar configurations 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 really 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 review however as you should know by now does not impact 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 but it’s not shipping until completion of April at the earliest the desktop is an inch thick but it’s this standard laminate as you can potentially get lacking even any cable television grommets for travel through the outside container
for the desktop was not damaged in any way which is entirely bizarre since I could shoot a 30-second b-roll montage of just the damage and defects on this desktop scuffed scraped pitted just super rough male if I had bought this I ‘d have been on the phone with customer support immediately they did likewise managed 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 ingrained metal inserts that we saw on the uplift desk so assembly aside from having to drill that top was really quite straightforward the whole 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 strangely absolutely where any type of cable management materials whatsoever the frame on this unit is a single motor dual phase design versus the double motor three-stage design that comes requirement with the uplift desk this can be upgraded too to both the double phase dual motor and a three-stage dual motor which presses the cost 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 second the height can vary from just under 28 inches to simply over forty seven point 6 inches so a max I ‘d it is more than high sufficient even for me and I stay at 6 foot for this model does come standard with the control panel that enables up-and-down movement plus 3 memory areas with an LED readout to inform 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 really peaceful as in barely audible this outside a cost would be the one benefit I would provide this unit over the uplift desk and I want to take care here because this isn’t a hit piece this desk is 240 dollars more affordable than the similar uplift design over 35% cheaper even if you update this flexi area test to the dual motor three-stage design it still is available in a hundred and seventy dollars less expensive than the uplift however cheaper does not imply 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 certainly offer it that but the lateral stability of this desk the horizontal motion at this cost point it’s undesirable it’s rub salt in the wound here they include a little security baffle this little steel piece that installs to the frame and covers a part of this turning driveshaft when
this desk sees any lateral motion at all the drive shaft strikes this baffle and the noise is definitely infuriating to leading things off I decided to add rolling casters to this desk this was a $30 upgrade and 2 of those 4 casters showed up damaged too my plan for this desk at this point is to lose the desk top and came with completely and replace 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 as much as 63 inches broad and 31 and a half inches deep so this will roll around the studio make it simpler to film products 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 first that is a financial investment in quality office furniture that will last you this at best seems like a less expensive imitation of that it simply does not feel quality and the distinction in between this desk and my main desk is night and day do feel free to have a look at their website as well which also feels eerily comparable to one of their competitors there’s a wealth of devices you can get for the flexi spot desk approximately and including a foot massager and even a fixed stationary bicycle and I could spend another 10 minutes of our precious time covering various alternatives and accessories I could however I think I’m better that they only sent out a basic desk due to the fact that as a fundamental desk I’m not a fan of the quality control at this rate point and I do not believe slapping on a lot of additionals is the move when the core item isn’t what it must be they do use a 30-day trial if you’re just morbidly curious and they warranty their desks for 3 years very desk is 5 years and uplift desk is 7 years if you are Flexispot M2B
in the market for a sit-stand desk they’re incredible mine’s been a life changer for me both in terms of video gaming and productivity but I would spend the additional money it’s gon na require to get into a higher end manufacturer like uplift desk or really desk and I haven’t personally utilized really desk items so I can’t speak on it however their track record is excellent huge thanks to flexi spot for sending this out for evaluation unfortunately I can not advise this unit and for the record I’m a hundred percent sure they would have happily replaced the parts that I had a concern with seeing as how both the desktop and the casters got here damaged but from a customer perspective you ‘d most likely be truly excited to get this in
