Flexispot Standing Desk Review …Flexispot Mothers Day 2019…
Cons: What I Didn’t Like About the Flexispot E7
Though the cons on this desk are very little, here are a couple of features that I wasn’t necessarily a big fan of:
The bundle 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 sturdy the Flexispot is.
The hassle-free cable tray was a little bit confusing 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 comfortable, 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 excited (considering that this meant it was going to be strong) and also a little reluctant (because we all know just how much of a challenge putting together furniture can be).
The good news is, with the help of an instructional YouTube link, it took me just around 42 minutes to put together. Scratch that, it took my 11-year-old child, 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 discussed well in the instructions.
As soon as assembled, I like the smooth appearance of this desk. I’m positive any of the many diverse surfaces that it is available in would look terrific in any workplace, 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 simple, efficient, and peaceful to change in between sitting and standing as sometimes as you want throughout the day.
Lastly, this desk is durable. It can hold up to 335 lbs even while in operation, so if you have a large home computer (or wish to sleep 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 will not wiggle or wobble.
in that video is quite kitted out as the desk we’re taking a look at today is pretty standard I tried to get as near to that as I could on uplifts website with comparable 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 attempt to get as close as possible with the uplift model is in fact 5 inches longer but you can do a lot with 5 inches boom yes now for transparency flexi area did send this desk out for review but as you need 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 but it’s not delivering until the end of April at the earliest the desktop is an inch thick however it’s this standard laminate as you can possibly get doing not have even any cable grommets for pass through the outdoors container
for the desktop was not harmed in any way which is entirely unusual since I might shoot a 30-second b-roll montage of simply the damage and defects on this desktop scuffed scraped pitted simply extremely rough male if I had bought this I ‘d have been on the phone with customer service right away they did also handled to miss out on drilling the pilot holes where you can attach the control box to the desktop a lot of having to do that myself without inadvertently 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 ingrained 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 cable televisions running to it from each component to support motorized function oddly absolutely where any sort of cable television management materials whatsoever the frame on this unit is a single motor dual stage style versus the dual motor three-stage design that comes standard with the uplift desk this can be upgraded too to both the double stage dual motor and a three-stage double motor which pushes the expense of the desk up
an extra 70 bucks 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 just under 28 inches to simply over forty seven point 6 inches so a max I ‘d it is more than tall adequate even for me and I remain at 6 foot for this design does come basic with the control panel that enables up-and-down motion plus three memory spots with an LED readout to inform you the desk height the single motor design uses 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 slow is really quiet as in barely audible this outside a rate would be the one benefit I would offer this unit over the uplift desk and I wish to take care here since this isn’t a hit piece this desk is 240 dollars more affordable than the comparable 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 cheaper than the uplift however cheaper doesn’t imply cheap 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 certainly offer it that but the lateral stability of this desk the horizontal movement at this price point it’s unacceptable it’s add insult to injury 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 motion at all the drive shaft strikes this baffle and the noise is definitely infuriating to top things off I chose to add rolling casters to this desk this was a $30 upgrade and two of those 4 casters got here damaged as well my plan for this desk at this moment is to lose the desk top and came with completely and replace 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 as much as 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 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 furniture that will last you this at best seems like a cheaper imitation of that it simply does not feel quality and the difference between this desk and my primary desk is night and day do feel free to have a look at their website as well which likewise feels strangely similar to one of their rivals there’s a wealth of devices you can get for the flexi area desk approximately and including a foot massager and even a fixed stationary bicycle and I might spend another 10 minutes of our precious time covering various choices and accessories I might however I think I’m happier that they just sent a basic desk due to the fact that as a fundamental desk I’m not a fan of the quality control at this rate point and I don’t think slapping on a bunch of additionals is the move 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 warranty their desks for three years very desk is 5 years and uplift desk is 7 years if you are Flexispot Mothers Day 2019
in the market for a sit-stand desk they’re incredible mine’s been a life changer for me both in regards to gaming and productivity however I would spend the additional money it’s gon na take to get into a higher end maker like uplift desk or very desk and I haven’t personally utilized extremely desk items so I can’t speak on it however their reputation is great big thanks to flexi area for sending this out for evaluation unfortunately I can not advise this system and for the record I’m a hundred percent sure they would have gladly changed the parts that I had a problem with viewing as how both the desktop and the casters showed up harmed but from a client perspective you ‘d probably be actually excited to get this in
