Flexispot Standing Desk Evaluation …Adjust Flexispot…
Cons: What I Didn’t Like About the Flexispot E7
Though the cons on this desk are very little, here are a few features that I wasn’t always a substantial fan of:
The package that the desk can be found in was heavy, so bringing it inside was a group effort, however this is just an effect of how strong the Flexispot is.
The practical cable 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 purchase 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 suggested it was going to be sturdy) and also a little hesitant (because we all know how much of a challenge assembling furnishings can be).
The good news is, with the help of an educational YouTube link, it took me just 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 tray, which I discovered wasn’t discussed well in the directions.
As soon as assembled, I like the streamlined look of this desk. I’m confident any of the many varied surfaces that it is available in would look fantastic 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 easy, effective, and peaceful to change in between sitting and standing as sometimes as you want throughout the day.
This desk is strong. It can hold up to 335 pounds even while in operation, so if you have a significant desktop computer (or want to sleep on it for some reason) it has you covered. It will also uniformly disperse weight no matter how unbalanced the weight you put on it is, it won’t wobble or wiggle.
because video is pretty kitted out as the desk we’re taking a look at today is pretty fundamental I attempted to get as near to that as I could on uplifts site with comparable setups the flexi area desk we’re taking a look at today will run you about four hundred and ten dollars versus 6 hundred and fifty for a comparable desk from uplift I try to get as close as possible with the uplift design is in fact five inches longer however you can do a lot with 5 inches boom yes now for openness flexi spot did send this desk out for evaluation but as you ought to understand by now does not affect 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 until the end of April at the earliest the desktop is an inch thick however it’s this fundamental laminate as you can perhaps get doing not have even any cable grommets for pass through the outdoors container
for the desktop was not damaged in any way which is absolutely unusual because I might 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 acquired this I ‘d have been on the phone with customer support right away they did also managed to miss out on drilling the pilot holes where you can connect the control box to the desktop a lot of having to do that myself without accidentally 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 ingrained metal inserts that we saw on the uplift desk so assembly aside from having to drill that top was in fact pretty uncomplicated the entire 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 unusually definitely where any sort of cable management products whatsoever the frame on this system is a single motor double stage design versus the dual motor three-stage style that comes standard with the uplift desk this can be upgraded as well to both the dual stage dual motor and a three-stage dual motor which presses 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 2nd the height can vary from just under 28 inches to just over forty seven point six inches so a max I ‘d it is more than tall sufficient even for me and I stay at 6 foot for this design does come basic with the control panel that permits up-and-down movement plus three memory spots with an LED readout to tell you the desk height the single motor design uses this drive shaft assembly which needs to be changed as the width of the desk is adjusted the motor operation itself while it might be slow is really peaceful as in barely audible this outside a cost would be the one benefit I would provide this system over the uplift desk and I wish to take care here since this isn’t a hit piece this desk is 240 dollars less expensive than the comparable uplift model over 35% more affordable even if you update 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 less expensive doesn’t indicate inexpensive 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 solid even if max height I’ll absolutely give it that but the lateral stability of this desk the horizontal motion at this rate point it’s inappropriate 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 hits the noise and this baffle is definitely frustrating to leading things off I decided to include rolling casters to this desk this was a $30 upgrade and 2 of those four casters got here harmed too my plan for this desk at this point is to lose the desk top and came with all together and replace it with a white laminate lemon table from Ikea and use it as an adjustable photo 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 easier to movie products without needing to adjust complex or heavy slider setups and what I personally pay $400 for that no I lucked out that I found uplift initially that is a financial investment in quality workplace furniture that will last you this at best feels like a cheaper replica 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 take a look at their site too which likewise feels strangely comparable to one of their rivals there’s a wealth of accessories you can get for the flexi area desk approximately and including a foot massager and even a stationary exercise bike and I could spend another 10 minutes of our valuable time covering various choices and accessories I could however I believe I’m happier that they just sent a standard desk due to the fact that as a fundamental desk I’m not a fan of the quality control 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 should 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 five years and uplift desk is seven years if you are Adjust Flexispot
in the market for a sit-stand desk they’re remarkable mine’s been a life changer for me both in terms of gaming and productivity however I would spend the extra money it’s gon na require to get into a greater end maker like uplift desk or really desk and I haven’t personally used extremely desk items so I can’t speak on it but their credibility is great big thanks to flexi spot for sending this out for review unfortunately I can not advise this system and for the record I’m a hundred percent sure they would have happily replaced the parts that I had a problem with viewing as how both the desktop and the casters arrived damaged however from a consumer perspective you ‘d probably be actually delighted to get this in
