Flexispot Standing Desk Review …Flexispot „Å©„Åì„ÅæâõΩ…
Cons: What I Didn’t Like About the Flexispot E7
Though the cons on this desk are very little, here are a few functions that I wasn’t necessarily a big fan of:
The package that the desk can be found in was heavy, so bringing it inside was a group effort, however this is simply an effect of how strong the Flexispot is.
The hassle-free cable television tray was a bit complicated to set up. In the end, you ultimately slip it under screws, which wasn’t really clear from the instructions.
You will need to buy an anti-fatigue mat to stay comfy, but this is an excellent idea 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 thrilled (because this suggested it was going to be sturdy) and likewise a little hesitant (because all of us know how much of an obstacle putting together 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 guidance from me, from start to finish. The only hang-up I have with assembly was the cable television tray, which I found wasn’t discussed well in the directions.
When assembled, I enjoy the streamlined look of this desk. I’m positive any of the many diverse finishes that it comes in would look fantastic in any office, and the adjustable width makes it simple to fit it in even the tiniest of office.
The quiet operation and height memory settings make it simple, effective, and quiet to switch in between sitting and standing as sometimes as you want 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 take a nap on it for some reason) it has you covered. It will also equally disperse weight no matter how out of balance the weight you place on it is, it will not wiggle or wobble.
because video is pretty kitted out as the desk we’re taking a look at today is pretty fundamental I tried to get as near to that as I could on uplifts website with comparable configurations the flexi spot desk we’re looking at today will run you about four hundred and ten dollars versus six hundred and fifty for a comparable desk from uplift I try 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 evaluation but as you must know by now does not impact my review 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 however it’s this fundamental laminate as you can perhaps get lacking even any cable grommets for pass through the outside carton
for the desktop was not harmed in any way which is utterly strange due to the fact that I could shoot a 30-second b-roll montage of just the damage and defects on this desktop scuffed scraped pitted simply very rough man if I had actually purchased this I ‘d have been on the phone with customer support right away they did also managed to miss drilling the pilot holes where you can attach the control box to the desktop a great deal 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 connecting 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 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 running to it from each element to support motorized function oddly definitely where any type of cable management products whatsoever the frame on this unit is a single motor dual phase design versus the dual motor three-stage design that comes requirement with the uplift desk this can be upgraded as well to both the double phase double motor and a three-stage double motor which presses the expense of the desk up
an extra 70 bucks the frame is developed for a max load of 154 pounds and it moves at a rate at an inch per 2nd the height can vary from simply under 28 inches to just over forty 7 point six inches so a max I ‘d it is more than high enough even for me and I remain at 6 foot for this design does come standard with the control board that allows for up-and-down motion plus three memory spots 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 changed the motor operation itself while it might be slow is very peaceful as in barely audible this outside a cost would be the one advantage I would provide this system over the uplift desk and I want to take care here due to the fact that this isn’t a hit piece this desk is 240 dollars cheaper than the equivalent uplift design over 35% more affordable 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 but less expensive doesn’t suggest inexpensive 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 definitely provide it that however the lateral stability of this desk the horizontal motion at this cost point it’s unacceptable it’s rub salt in the wound here they include 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 strikes this baffle and the sound is absolutely shocking to leading things off I chose to add rolling casters to this desk this was a $30 upgrade and 2 of those four casters showed up harmed also my prepare for this desk at this moment is to lose the desk top and included all together 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 approximately 63 inches broad and 31 and a half inches deep so this will roll around the studio make it simpler to film products without having to change 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 finest feels like a cheaper imitation of that it just doesn’t feel quality and the difference between this desk and my primary desk is night and day do do not hesitate to check out their site as well which likewise feels eerily comparable to among their competitors there’s a wealth of accessories you can get for the flexi spot desk up to and including a foot massager and even a stationary exercise bike and I might invest another 10 minutes of our precious time covering various choices and devices I could but I believe I’m happier that they only sent a basic desk because as a standard desk I’m not a fan of the quality assurance at this price point and I don’t think slapping on a bunch of additionals is the relocation when the core product 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 five years and uplift desk is 7 years if you are Flexispot „Å©„Åì„ÅæâõΩ
in the market for a sit-stand desk they’re remarkable mine’s been a life changer for me both in regards to gaming and performance but I would invest the money it’s gon na take to enter into a greater end maker like uplift desk or really desk and I haven’t personally utilized extremely desk products so I can’t speak on it however their credibility is very good huge thanks to flexi spot for sending this out for evaluation sadly I can not suggest this unit and for the record I’m a hundred percent sure they would have happily changed the parts that I had a concern with seeing as how both the desktop and the casters showed up damaged but from a customer viewpoint you ‘d most likely be really delighted to get this in
