Flexispot Standing Desk Review …Flexispot Magnet…
Cons: What I Didn’t Like About the Flexispot E7
Though the cons on this desk are very little, here are a couple of features that I wasn’t always a huge fan of:
The bundle that the desk was available in was heavy, so bringing it inside was a group effort, but this is simply a repercussion of how tough the Flexispot is.
The hassle-free cable tray was a little bit complicated to install. In the end, you eventually slip it under screws, which wasn’t very clear from the instructions.
You will require to purchase an anti-fatigue mat to stay comfy, but this is a good 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 ecstatic (given that this meant it was going to be durable) and also a little reluctant (since we all understand how much of an obstacle putting together 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 daughter, 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 instructions.
When put together, I enjoy the streamlined appearance of this desk. I’m confident any of the many diverse surfaces that it can be found in would look great in any workplace, and the adjustable width makes it easy to fit it in even the smallest of office.
The peaceful operation and height memory settings make it easy, effective, and quiet to switch between sitting and standing as sometimes as you desire throughout the day.
Lastly, this desk is durable. It can hold up to 335 lbs even while in operation, so if you have a large home computer (or wish to rest on it for some reason) it has you covered. It will also equally distribute weight no matter how unbalanced the weight you put 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 pretty standard I attempted to get as close to that as I could on uplifts website with equivalent configurations the flexi area desk we’re looking at today will run you about four hundred and ten dollars versus 6 hundred and fifty for a similar desk from uplift I try to get as close as possible with the uplift design is actually 5 inches longer but you can do a lot with five inches boom yes now for openness flexi area did send this desk out for evaluation however as you should know by now doesn’t affect 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 however it’s not shipping until completion of April at the earliest the desktop is an inch thick however it’s this basic laminate as you can possibly get lacking even any cable television grommets for pass through the outdoors container
for the desktop was not harmed in any way which is entirely unusual since I could shoot a 30-second b-roll montage of simply the damage and flaws on this desktop scuffed scraped pitted just extremely rough guy if I had actually bought this I ‘d have been on the phone with customer support instantly they did likewise handled 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 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 pretty 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 strangely absolutely where any kind of cable television management materials whatsoever the frame on this unit is a single motor double phase 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 stage double motor and a three-stage double motor which presses the expense of the desk up
an extra 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 just over forty 7 point six inches so a max I ‘d it is more than tall enough 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 three memory spots with an LED readout to tell you the desk height the single motor design utilizes this drive shaft assembly which needs to be changed 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 system over the uplift desk and I want to beware here due to the fact that this isn’t a hit piece this desk is 240 dollars less expensive than the comparable uplift model over 35% cheaper even if you upgrade this flexi spot test to the double motor three-stage style it still can be found in a hundred and seventy dollars more affordable than the uplift but less expensive doesn’t 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 absolutely offer it that however the lateral stability of this desk the horizontal movement at this cost point it’s unacceptable it’s rub salt in the wound here they include a little safety baffle this little steel piece that mounts to the frame and covers a portion of this turning driveshaft when
this desk sees any lateral movement at all the drive shaft hits the noise and this baffle is definitely infuriating to top things off I decided to add rolling casters to this desk this was a $30 upgrade and 2 of those four casters got here damaged as well my plan for this desk at this point is to lose the desk top and featured all together and replace it with a white laminate lemon table from Ikea and utilize it as an adjustable picture 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 easier to movie items 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 initially that is an investment in quality office furniture that will last you this at finest seems like a more affordable imitation of that it simply does not feel quality and the distinction between this desk and my primary desk is night and day do do not hesitate to check out their site too which likewise feels eerily similar to one of their rivals there’s a wealth of devices you can get for the flexi area desk as much as and consisting of a foot massager and even a fixed exercise bike and I might spend another 10 minutes of our precious time covering various choices and devices I might but I think I’m better that they just sent out a fundamental desk since as a fundamental desk I’m not a fan of the quality control 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 offer a 30-day trial if you’re just morbidly curious and they guarantee their desks for 3 years extremely desk is 5 years and uplift desk is seven years if you are Flexispot Magnet
in the market for a sit-stand desk they’re fantastic mine’s been a life changer for me both in regards to video gaming and efficiency however I would spend the money it’s gon na take to get into a greater end maker like uplift desk or very desk and I have not personally used really desk products so I can’t speak on it however their credibility is excellent huge thanks to flexi area for sending this out for review sadly I can not recommend 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 seeing as how both the desktop and the casters arrived harmed but from a customer standpoint you ‘d most likely be really thrilled to get this in
