Flexispot Standing Desk Evaluation …Flexispot, Las Positas Road, Livermore, Ca…
Cons: What I Didn’t Like About the Flexispot E7
The cons on this desk are very little, here are a couple of functions that I wasn’t always a big fan of:
The plan that the desk can be found in was heavy, so bringing it inside was a group effort, however this is simply a consequence of how durable the Flexispot is.
The hassle-free cable television tray was a bit complicated to install. In the end, you eventually slip it under screws, which wasn’t really clear from the instructions.
You will need to buy an anti-fatigue mat to remain comfortable, however this is a good idea 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 ecstatic (since this meant it was going to be durable) and also a little reluctant (due to the fact that all of us know just how much of a challenge assembling furniture can be).
Fortunately, 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 found wasn’t discussed well in the directions.
Once put together, I enjoy the streamlined appearance of this desk. I’m positive any of the many varied surfaces that it is available in would look great in any workplace, and the adjustable width makes it easy to fit it in even the smallest of office.
The quiet operation and height memory settings make it simple, efficient, and quiet to switch in between sitting and standing as often times as you want throughout the day.
This desk is sturdy. It can hold up to 335 pounds even while in operation, so if you have a hefty desktop computer (or wish to take a nap on it for some reason) it has you covered. It will also uniformly distribute weight no matter how out of balance the weight you put on it is, it will not wiggle or wobble.
because video is pretty kitted out as the desk we’re taking a look at today is quite standard I attempted to get as close to that as I might on uplifts website with equivalent configurations the flexi spot 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 design is in fact 5 inches longer however you can do a lot with 5 inches boom yes now for openness flexi area did send this desk out for evaluation but as you ought to understand by now does not affect my evaluation 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 shipping until the end of April at the earliest the desktop is an inch thick but it’s this basic laminate as you can possibly get doing not have even any cable grommets for travel through the outside container
for the desktop was not damaged in any way which is entirely unusual due to the fact that I might shoot a 30-second b-roll montage of simply the damage and flaws on this desktop scuffed scraped pitted just incredibly rough guy if I had actually purchased this I ‘d have been on the phone with customer care instantly 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 needing to do that myself without accidentally 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 pretty uncomplicated the whole thing came together in about 45 minutes and despite the fact that there’s cable televisions going to it from each part to support motorized function unusually absolutely where any kind of cable television management products whatsoever the frame on this unit is a single motor dual stage style versus the double motor three-stage style that comes standard with the uplift desk this can be updated also to both the double stage dual motor and a three-stage dual motor which pushes the cost of the desk up
an additional 70 dollars the frame is developed for a max load of 154 pounds and it moves at a rate at an inch per 2nd the height can range from simply under 28 inches to just over forty seven point six inches so a max I ‘d it is more than high sufficient even for me and I stay at 6 foot for this model does come standard with the control board that allows for up-and-down motion plus three memory spots with an LED readout to inform you the desk height the single motor style 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 slow is very quiet as in barely audible this outside a cost would be the one advantage I would give this system over the uplift desk and I wish to take care here due to the fact that this isn’t a hit piece this desk is 240 dollars more affordable than the comparable uplift model over 35% less expensive even if you update this flexi area test to the double motor three-stage design it still is available in a hundred and seventy dollars more affordable than the uplift but less expensive 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 certainly provide 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 safety baffle this little steel piece that mounts 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 frustrating to leading things off I decided to add rolling casters to this desk this was a $30 upgrade and 2 of those four casters arrived damaged as well my plan for this desk at this point 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 photo table which you can’t do this frame will accommodate desktops up to 63 inches wide and 31 and a half inches deep so this will roll around the studio make it simpler to movie products 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 initially that is an investment in quality office furniture that will last you this at best seems like a more affordable 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 do not hesitate to check out their website also which also feels strangely comparable to one of 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 precious time covering different choices and devices I could but I believe I’m better that they just sent out a fundamental desk because as a fundamental desk I’m not a fan of the quality assurance at this price point and I do not believe slapping on a lot of bonus is the relocation when the core product isn’t what it need to be they do provide a 30-day trial if you’re simply morbidly curious and they guarantee their desks for three years very desk is 5 years and uplift desk is seven years if you are Flexispot, Las Positas Road, Livermore, Ca
in the market for a sit-stand desk they’re fantastic mine’s been a life changer for me both in terms of video gaming and efficiency but I would spend the extra money it’s gon na require to enter a higher end producer like uplift desk or extremely desk and I have not personally utilized extremely desk products so I can’t speak on it but their track record is very good big thanks to flexi spot for sending this out for review unfortunately I can not recommend this system and for the record I’m a hundred percent sure they would have gladly replaced the parts that I had a problem with viewing as how both the desktop and the casters got here damaged but from a customer perspective you ‘d probably be really delighted to get this in
