Flexispot Standing Desk Review …Flexispot 3…
Cons: What I Didn’t Like About the Flexispot E7
Though the cons on this desk are minimal, here are a couple of functions that I wasn’t always a big fan of:
The bundle that the desk can be found in was heavy, so bringing it inside was a group effort, however this is simply a consequence of how tough the Flexispot is.
The practical cable tray was a bit confusing to set up. In the end, you ultimately slip it under screws, which wasn’t extremely clear from the instructions.
You will need to buy an anti-fatigue mat to stay comfortable, however this is a good idea for any standing desks, so I can’t fault Flexispot for that.
When it showed up and I saw how heavy it was, I was both thrilled (considering that this indicated it was going to be durable) and also a little reluctant (because we all understand how much of a challenge assembling furniture can be).
Thankfully, with the help of an educational 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 hang-up I have with assembly was the cable television tray, which I found wasn’t explained well in the directions.
Once assembled, I love the sleek appearance of this desk. I’m confident any of the many varied surfaces that it comes in would look terrific in any office, and the adjustable width makes it simple to fit it in even the tiniest of home offices.
The quiet operation and height memory settings make it simple, efficient, and peaceful to switch between sitting and standing as often times as you want throughout the day.
Lastly, this desk is strong. It can hold up to 335 lbs even while in operation, so if you have a substantial home computer (or wish to take a nap on it for some reason) it has you covered. It will also uniformly distribute weight no matter how out of balance the weight you place on it is, it won’t wobble or wiggle.
in that video is quite kitted out as the desk we’re taking a look at today is quite standard I tried to get as near to that as I might on uplifts site with similar configurations the flexi area 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 try to get as close as possible with the uplift design is actually five inches longer however you can do a lot with 5 inches boom yes now for openness flexi area did send this desk out for evaluation however as you must understand by now does not impact my review in any way the desktop here is 55 inches large 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 up until the end of April at the earliest the desktop is an inch thick but it’s this standard laminate as you can perhaps get lacking even any cable grommets for travel through the outside container
for the desktop was not damaged 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 simply super rough guy if I had purchased this I ‘d have been on the phone with customer care immediately they did also managed to miss out on drilling the pilot holes where you can attach the control box to the desktop a lot of needing 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 attaching 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 needing to drill that top was really quite straightforward the whole thing came together in about 45 minutes and despite the fact that there’s cables going to it from each part to support motorized function oddly definitely where any sort of cable television management products whatsoever the frame on this system is a single motor double phase design versus the double motor three-stage style that comes standard with the uplift desk this can be upgraded as well to both the double phase dual motor and a three-stage double motor which presses the expense 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 second the height can range from simply under 28 inches to just over forty seven point 6 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 basic with the control board that permits up-and-down motion plus three memory areas with an LED readout to tell you the desk height the single motor design 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 sluggish is really peaceful as in barely audible this outside a rate would be the one advantage I would provide this system over the uplift desk and I want to be careful here since 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 dual motor three-stage design it still is available in a hundred and seventy dollars cheaper than the uplift however cheaper doesn’t suggest cheap this desk is still over four hundred dollars if I had paid over $400 for this desk I ‘d have a problem with that the front to back stability of this desk is strong even if max height I’ll definitely provide it that however the lateral stability of this desk the horizontal movement at this rate point it’s inappropriate it’s add insult to injury here they consist of a little safety baffle this little steel piece that installs to the frame and covers a part of this rotating driveshaft when
this desk sees any lateral movement at all the drive shaft strikes the noise and this baffle is definitely frustrating to leading things off I decided to add rolling casters to this desk this was a $30 upgrade and two of those four casters got here harmed as well my prepare for this desk at this moment is to lose the desk top and featured entirely and replace it with a white laminate lemon table from Ikea and utilize it as an adjustable image 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 much easier to movie items without having 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 a financial investment in quality office furniture that will last you this at best feels like a more affordable imitation of that it simply doesn’t feel quality and the distinction in between this desk and my primary desk is night and day do do not hesitate to check out their site as well which also feels eerily similar to among their rivals there’s a wealth of accessories you can get for the flexi area desk as much as and including a foot massager and even a fixed exercise bike and I could invest another 10 minutes of our precious time covering various alternatives and devices I might however I believe I’m happier that they just sent a basic desk since as a basic desk I’m not a fan of the quality control at this cost point and I don’t think slapping on a bunch of bonus is the move when the core product isn’t what it ought to be they do offer a 30-day trial if you’re just morbidly curious and they service warranty their desks for 3 years very desk is 5 years and uplift desk is 7 years if you are Flexispot 3
in the market for a sit-stand desk they’re fantastic mine’s been a life changer for me both in terms of gaming and productivity but I would invest the extra money it’s gon na require to enter into a higher end maker like uplift desk or extremely desk and I haven’t personally used extremely desk items so I can’t speak on it but their track record is excellent big thanks to flexi spot for sending this out for evaluation sadly I can not advise this unit and for the record I’m a hundred percent sure they would have happily changed the parts that I had an issue with viewing as how both the desktop and the casters got here damaged however from a client viewpoint you ‘d probably be truly excited to get this in
