Flexispot Standing Desk Review …Ed2B Flexispot…
Cons: What I Didn’t Like About the Flexispot E7
Though the cons on this desk are minimal, here are a few functions that I wasn’t necessarily a huge fan of:
The package that the desk came in was heavy, so bringing it inside was a group effort, but this is just a repercussion of how tough the Flexispot is.
The convenient cable tray was a little bit complicated to set up. In the end, you eventually slip it under screws, which wasn’t extremely clear from the directions.
You will require to purchase an anti-fatigue mat to remain comfortable, however this is a good 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 ecstatic (since this implied it was going to be tough) and likewise a little reluctant (since all of us understand just how much of a challenge assembling furniture can be).
Fortunately, 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 daughter, with some supervision from me, from start to finish. The only problem I have with assembly was the cable television tray, which I found wasn’t discussed well in the guidelines.
Once assembled, I love the smooth appearance of this desk. I’m confident any of the many varied surfaces that it comes in would look fantastic in any workplace, and the adjustable width makes it simple to fit it in even the smallest of office.
The quiet operation and height memory settings make it easy, efficient, and quiet to change between sitting and standing as many times 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 computer (or want to rest on it for some reason) it has you covered. It will likewise evenly distribute 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 looking at today is pretty basic I attempted to get as near that as I might on uplifts website with equivalent setups the flexi spot desk we’re looking at today will run you about four hundred and 10 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 actually five inches longer however 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 need to know by now does not impact 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 completion of April at the earliest the desktop is an inch thick but it’s this fundamental laminate as you can perhaps get lacking even any cable grommets for travel through the outside carton
for the desktop was not harmed in any way which is entirely bizarre because I could shoot a 30-second b-roll montage of simply the damage and defects on this desktop scuffed scraped pitted just extremely rough man if I had actually acquired this I ‘d have been on the phone with customer support 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 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 embedded metal inserts that we saw on the uplift desk so assembly aside from having to drill that top was really quite simple the entire thing came together in about 45 minutes and despite the fact that there’s cables going to it from each component to support motorized function oddly absolutely where any kind of cable management materials whatsoever the frame on this system is a single motor double phase style versus the double motor three-stage style that comes requirement with the uplift desk this can be upgraded also to both the double stage dual motor and a three-stage dual motor which presses the cost of the desk up
an additional 70 dollars the frame is designed for a max load of 154 pounds and it moves at a rate at an inch per 2nd the height can vary from just under 28 inches to just over forty seven point six 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 basic with the control panel that permits up-and-down motion plus three memory spots with an LED readout to tell 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 sluggish is extremely 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 take care here since this isn’t a hit piece this desk is 240 dollars more affordable than the equivalent uplift model over 35% less expensive 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 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 an issue with that the front to back stability of this desk is solid even if max height I’ll absolutely provide it that however the lateral stability of this desk the horizontal movement at this rate point it’s undesirable it’s add insult to injury 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 movement at all the drive shaft hits this baffle and the sound is absolutely shocking to leading things off I chose to include rolling casters to this desk this was a $30 upgrade and two of those 4 casters showed up harmed also my plan for this desk at this moment is to lose the desk top and came with completely and change it with a white laminate lemon table from Ikea and use it as an adjustable picture table which you can’t do this frame will accommodate desktops up to 63 inches large and 31 and a half inches deep so this will roll around the studio make it much easier to movie 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 furnishings that will last you this at best seems like a less expensive replica of that it just does not 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 website as well 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 invest another 10 minutes of our valuable time covering various options and accessories I might but I think I’m happier that they just sent out a fundamental desk because as a fundamental desk I’m not a fan of the quality control at this cost point and I don’t believe slapping on a lot of extras is the relocation when the core product isn’t what it need to be they do offer a 30-day trial if you’re simply morbidly curious and they guarantee their desks for three years really desk is five years and uplift desk is 7 years if you are Ed2B Flexispot
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 productivity but I would invest the additional money it’s gon na require to enter a higher end maker like uplift desk or very desk and I haven’t personally used really desk items so I can’t speak on it but their track record is very good huge thanks to flexi spot for sending this out for evaluation regrettably 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 an issue with seeing as how both the desktop and the casters showed up harmed but from a consumer viewpoint you ‘d probably be actually excited to get this in
