Flexispot Standing Desk Review …Flexispot 35\”Wide Plaform…
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 huge fan of:
The package that the desk was available in was heavy, so bringing it inside was a group effort, however this is simply an effect of how strong the Flexispot is.
The practical cable tray was a little bit confusing to install. In the end, you ultimately slip it under screws, which wasn’t really clear from the directions.
You will need to purchase an anti-fatigue mat to stay comfy, however this is a great 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 thrilled (because this suggested it was going to be tough) and also a little reluctant (since we all understand just how much of an obstacle assembling furnishings 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 child, with some guidance from me, from start to finish. The only problem I have with assembly was the cable television tray, which I discovered wasn’t discussed well in the instructions.
As soon as put together, I love the sleek look of this desk. I’m positive any of the many diverse surfaces that it can be found in would look fantastic in any office, and the adjustable width makes it simple to fit it in even the smallest of office.
The peaceful operation and height memory settings make it easy, efficient, and quiet to change in between sitting and standing as many times 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 significant desktop computer (or want to rest on it for some reason) it has you covered. It will also evenly distribute weight no matter how unbalanced the weight you place on it is, it won’t wiggle or wobble.
because video is pretty kitted out as the desk we’re looking at today is quite standard I tried to get as near that as I might on uplifts site with similar configurations 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 comparable desk from uplift I attempt to get as close as possible with the uplift model is actually 5 inches longer however 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 must know by now doesn’t 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 however it’s not delivering until completion of April at the earliest the desktop is an inch thick however it’s this fundamental laminate as you can possibly get lacking even any cable grommets for travel through the outside carton
for the desktop was not harmed in any way which is absolutely unusual since I could shoot a 30-second b-roll montage of just the damage and flaws on this desktop scuffed scraped pitted just very rough guy if I had bought this I ‘d have been on the phone with customer support immediately they did also managed to miss drilling the pilot holes where you can attach the control box to the desktop a lot of having to do that myself without unintentionally drilling through the other side 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 embedded metal inserts that we saw on the uplift desk so assembly aside from having to drill that top was actually quite straightforward the whole thing came together in about 45 minutes and despite the fact that there’s cables going to it from each part to support motorized function strangely absolutely where any kind of cable television management products whatsoever the frame on this system is a single motor double stage design versus the double motor three-stage design that comes requirement with the uplift desk this can be upgraded as well to both the double phase dual motor and a three-stage dual 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 six inches so a max I ‘d it is more than tall sufficient even for me and I stay at 6 foot for this model does come standard with the control panel that permits up-and-down motion plus three memory spots with an LED readout to tell you the desk height the single motor design 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 sluggish is extremely quiet as in barely audible this outside a rate would be the one benefit I would provide this system over the uplift desk and I want to be careful 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 area test to the double motor three-stage design it still comes in a hundred and seventy dollars more affordable than the uplift however less expensive does not indicate 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 give it that but the lateral stability of this desk the horizontal movement at this cost point it’s inappropriate it’s rub salt in the wound here they consist of a little security baffle this little steel piece that mounts to the frame and covers a part of this rotating driveshaft when
this desk sees any lateral movement at all the drive shaft hits this baffle and the noise is definitely infuriating to leading things off I chose to include rolling casters to this desk this was a $30 upgrade and two of those four casters showed up damaged as well my plan for this desk at this moment is to lose the desk top and featured completely and change 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 as much as 63 inches wide and 31 and a half inches deep so this will roll around the studio make it easier to film items without needing to change complex or heavy slider setups and what I personally pay $400 for that no I lucked out that I found uplift first that is an investment in quality workplace furniture that will last you this at best seems like a less expensive replica of that it simply does not feel quality and the difference in between this desk and my main desk is night and day do feel free to take a look at their site too which also feels eerily comparable to among their competitors there’s a wealth of accessories you can get for the flexi spot desk approximately and including a foot massager and even a fixed stationary bicycle and I could spend another 10 minutes of our valuable time covering numerous options and devices I could however I believe I’m better that they only sent a fundamental desk since as a standard desk I’m not a fan of the quality assurance at this rate point and I do not think slapping on a lot of additionals is the relocation when the core item isn’t what it should be they do use a 30-day trial if you’re simply morbidly curious and they service warranty their desks for three years extremely desk is 5 years and uplift desk is seven years if you are Flexispot 35\”Wide Plaform
in the market for a sit-stand desk they’re amazing mine’s been a life changer for me both in terms of gaming and productivity however I would invest the additional money it’s gon na take to get into a greater end maker like uplift desk or very desk and I haven’t personally utilized very desk products so I can’t speak on it but their track record is excellent big thanks to flexi spot 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 an issue with viewing as how both the desktop and the casters arrived harmed however from a consumer perspective you ‘d most likely be actually thrilled to get this in
