Flexispot Standing Desk Review …Flexispot F3W…
Cons: What I Didn’t Like About the Flexispot E7
The cons on this desk are minimal, here are a couple of features that I wasn’t always a substantial fan of:
The plan that the desk can be found in was heavy, so bringing it inside was a group effort, but this is simply a repercussion of how strong the Flexispot is.
The convenient cable tray was a little bit confusing to install. In the end, you eventually slip it under screws, which wasn’t very clear from the directions.
You will need 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 (because this indicated it was going to be durable) and likewise a little reluctant (since we all understand how much of a difficulty assembling furniture can be).
The good news is, with the help of an educational YouTube link, it took me just around 42 minutes to put together. Scratch that, it took my 11-year-old child, with some guidance from me, from start to finish. The only hang-up I have with assembly was the cable television tray, which I discovered wasn’t explained well in the guidelines.
When assembled, I love the smooth appearance of this desk. I’m confident any of the many varied finishes that it comes in would look great in any office, and the adjustable width makes it easy to fit it in even the tiniest of office.
The quiet operation and height memory settings make it easy, efficient, and peaceful to change in between sitting and standing as many times as you desire throughout the day.
This desk is tough. It can hold up to 335 lbs even while in operation, so if you have a large desktop (or want to rest 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 won’t wiggle or wobble.
in that video is pretty kitted out as the desk we’re looking at today is pretty basic I attempted to get as close to that as I could on uplifts website with similar configurations the flexi area desk we’re looking at today will run you about four hundred and ten dollars versus six hundred and fifty for a similar 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 openness flexi area did send this desk out for evaluation but as you ought to know by now does not affect my evaluation 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 however 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 doing not have even any cable grommets for travel through the outdoors carton
for the desktop was not harmed in any way which is utterly unusual since I could shoot a 30-second b-roll montage of just the damage and defects 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 drilling the pilot holes where you can connect the control box to the desktop a great deal of having 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 area to the frame that’s a far cry from the ingrained metal inserts that we saw on the uplift desk so assembly aside from having to drill that top was really pretty simple the entire thing came together in about 45 minutes and despite the fact that there’s cable televisions running to it from each element to support motorized function strangely definitely where any type of cable management materials whatsoever the frame on this unit is a single motor double stage design versus the double motor three-stage style that comes requirement with the uplift desk this can be upgraded as well to both the dual phase dual motor and a three-stage double motor which pushes 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 second the height can range from just under 28 inches to simply over forty seven point 6 inches so a max I ‘d it is more than tall enough even for me and I remain at 6 foot for this model does come standard with the control panel that enables up-and-down motion plus 3 memory areas with an LED readout to inform you the desk height the single motor style uses this drive shaft assembly which has to be changed as the width of the desk is changed the motor operation itself while it might be sluggish is very peaceful as in barely audible this outside a cost would be the one benefit I would offer this system over the uplift desk and I want to take care here because this isn’t a hit piece this desk is 240 dollars less expensive than the equivalent uplift model over 35% more affordable even if you upgrade this flexi area test to the double motor three-stage style it still can be found in a hundred and seventy dollars less expensive than the uplift but cheaper doesn’t imply low-cost 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 strong even if max height I’ll absolutely provide it that however the lateral stability of this desk the horizontal motion at this rate point it’s unacceptable it’s add fuel to the fire here they include a little security baffle this little steel piece that mounts to the frame and covers a part of this turning driveshaft when
this desk sees any lateral motion at all the drive shaft hits the sound and this baffle is absolutely shocking 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 too my plan for this desk at this point is to lose the desk top and featured entirely 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 as much as 63 inches large and 31 and a half inches deep so this will roll around the studio make it easier to film 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 first that is an investment in quality office furnishings that will last you this at best feels like a less expensive replica of that it just does not feel quality and the distinction between this desk and my primary desk is night and day do do not hesitate to take a look at their site too which likewise feels strangely similar to one of their rivals there’s a wealth of devices you can get for the flexi area desk as much as and including a foot massager and even a stationary stationary bicycle and I might spend another 10 minutes of our precious time covering numerous 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 assurance at this cost point and I don’t think slapping on a bunch of extras is the move when the core product isn’t what it ought to be they do provide a 30-day trial if you’re simply 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 F3W
in the market for a sit-stand desk they’re amazing mine’s been a life changer for me both in regards to video gaming and productivity however I would invest the extra money it’s gon na take to get into a higher end maker like uplift desk or very desk and I haven’t personally used very desk products so I can’t speak on it but their credibility is excellent big thanks to flexi spot for sending this out for review unfortunately 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 viewing as how both the desktop and the casters arrived harmed but from a consumer perspective you ‘d probably be truly excited to get this in
