Flexispot Standing Desk Evaluation …Flexispot E6W…
Cons: What I Didn’t Like About the Flexispot E7
Though the cons on this desk are minimal, here are a few features that I wasn’t necessarily a big fan of:
The package that the desk was available in was heavy, so bringing it inside was a group effort, however this is simply a consequence of how strong the Flexispot is.
The convenient cable television tray was a bit complicated to set up. In the end, you eventually slip it under screws, which wasn’t extremely clear from the guidelines.
You will need to buy an anti-fatigue mat to remain comfy, but this is a good 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 fired up (considering that this meant it was going to be strong) and also a little reluctant (since all of us know just how much of a challenge assembling furniture can be).
Thankfully, 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 guidance from me, from start to finish. The only problem I have with assembly was the cable television tray, which I found wasn’t described well in the instructions.
Once put together, I enjoy the sleek appearance of this desk. I’m confident any of the many varied surfaces that it comes in would look terrific in any workplace, 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, efficient, and peaceful to switch between sitting and standing as many times as you desire throughout the day.
This desk is durable. It can hold up to 335 pounds 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 equally disperse weight no matter how unbalanced the weight you place on it is, it will not wiggle or wobble.
in that video is pretty 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 setups the flexi spot desk we’re taking a look at today will run you about four hundred and 10 dollars versus 6 hundred and fifty for a similar desk from uplift I try to get as close as possible with the uplift model is in fact five inches longer however you can do a lot with 5 inches boom yes now for transparency flexi spot did send this desk out for evaluation but as you ought to 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 however it’s not delivering until completion of April at the earliest the desktop is an inch thick but it’s this basic laminate as you can potentially get lacking even any cable grommets for go through the outside carton
for the desktop was not damaged in any way which is absolutely strange due to the fact that I could shoot a 30-second b-roll montage of simply the damage and flaws on this desktop scuffed scraped pitted simply super rough man if I had acquired this I ‘d have been on the phone with customer service immediately they did likewise managed to miss out on drilling the pilot holes where you can connect the control box to the desktop a great deal of having to do that myself without unintentionally drilling through the opposite 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 needing to drill that top was in fact quite straightforward the whole thing came together in about 45 minutes and despite the fact that there’s cables running to it from each component to support motorized function strangely definitely where any type of cable television management materials whatsoever the frame on this unit is a single motor double phase style versus the dual motor three-stage design that comes standard with the uplift desk this can be updated as well to both the double stage dual motor and a three-stage dual motor which pushes the expense of the desk up
an extra 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 vary from simply 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 allows for up-and-down motion plus 3 memory areas with an LED readout to tell you the desk height the single motor style uses 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 quiet as in barely audible this outside a rate would be the one advantage I would give 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 equivalent uplift model over 35% less expensive even if you update this flexi spot test to the dual motor three-stage design it still comes in a hundred and seventy dollars more affordable than the uplift however more affordable does not mean cheap this desk is still over four hundred dollars if I had paid over $400 for this desk I ‘d have an issue with that the front to back stability of this desk is strong even if max height I’ll absolutely provide it that however the lateral stability of this desk the horizontal motion at this cost point it’s undesirable it’s add fuel to the fire here they include a little safety baffle this little steel piece that installs to the frame and covers a portion of this turning driveshaft when
this desk sees any lateral movement at all the drive shaft strikes the noise and this baffle is absolutely infuriating to top things off I decided to include rolling casters to this desk this was a $30 upgrade and two of those 4 casters showed up damaged also my prepare for this desk at this moment is to lose the desk top and included all together and change 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 up to 63 inches large and 31 and a half inches deep so this will roll around the studio make it easier to film items 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 workplace furnishings that will last you this at finest feels like a less expensive imitation of that it just does not feel quality and the distinction in between this desk and my main desk is night and day do feel free to take a look at their site also which likewise feels strangely comparable to among their rivals there’s a wealth of accessories you can get for the flexi area desk up to and including a foot massager and even a fixed stationary bicycle and I could invest another 10 minutes of our precious time covering numerous choices and devices I might but I believe I’m better that they only sent a basic desk due to the fact that as a standard desk I’m not a fan of the quality control at this rate point and I do not think slapping on a bunch of extras is the move when the core product isn’t what it ought to be they do use a 30-day trial if you’re just morbidly curious and they service warranty their desks for three years very desk is five years and uplift desk is 7 years if you are Flexispot E6W
in the market for a sit-stand desk they’re fantastic mine’s been a life changer for me both in regards to gaming and efficiency however I would spend the money it’s gon na take to get into a higher end maker like uplift desk or really desk and I have not personally utilized really desk items so I can’t speak on it however their reputation is excellent huge thanks to flexi area for sending this out for evaluation regrettably I can not advise this system and for the record I’m a hundred percent sure they would have happily changed the parts that I had a problem with seeing as how both the desktop and the casters arrived damaged however from a client perspective you ‘d probably be really excited to get this in
