Flexispot Standing Desk Review …Locktec/Flexispot+Livermore…
Cons: What I Didn’t Like About the Flexispot E7
The cons on this desk are minimal, here are a few features that I wasn’t always a substantial fan of:
The package that the desk was available in was heavy, so bringing it inside was a group effort, however this is just a consequence of how strong the Flexispot is.
The hassle-free 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 guidelines.
You will require to buy an anti-fatigue mat to stay comfortable, but this is an excellent 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 fired up (because this meant it was going to be tough) and likewise a little reluctant (due to the fact that we all understand how much of an obstacle assembling furnishings can be).
Luckily, with the help of a training 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 tray, which I discovered wasn’t discussed well in the directions.
When assembled, I enjoy the streamlined appearance of this desk. I’m confident any of the many diverse surfaces that it comes in would look great in any office, and the adjustable width makes it simple to fit it in even the smallest of office.
The quiet operation and height memory settings make it easy, efficient, and peaceful to change 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 substantial home computer (or wish to rest on it for some reason) it has you covered. It will likewise equally distribute weight no matter how out of balance the weight you put on it is, it will not wobble or wiggle.
because video is quite kitted out as the desk we’re taking a look at today is quite fundamental I attempted to get as close to that as I could on uplifts site with similar setups the flexi spot desk we’re looking at today will run you about four hundred and ten dollars versus 6 hundred and fifty for a comparable desk from uplift I attempt to get as close as possible with the uplift design is in fact five inches longer but you can do a lot with 5 inches boom yes now for transparency flexi spot did send this desk out for review but as you should understand by now does not affect 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 however it’s not shipping till completion of April at the earliest the desktop is an inch thick but it’s this basic laminate as you can potentially get lacking even any cable television grommets for travel through the outside container
for the desktop was not damaged in any way which is entirely unusual because I could shoot a 30-second b-roll montage of just the damage and defects on this desktop scuffed scraped pitted simply extremely rough man if I had purchased this I ‘d have been on the phone with customer support instantly they did likewise handled to miss out on drilling the pilot holes where you can attach the control box to the desktop a great deal of needing 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 embedded metal inserts that we saw on the uplift desk so assembly aside from having to drill that top was actually quite uncomplicated the entire thing came together in about 45 minutes and despite the fact that there’s cables running to it from each element 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 phase style versus the dual motor three-stage design that comes standard with the uplift desk this can be upgraded also to both the double stage double motor and a three-stage double motor which pushes the cost of the desk up
an extra 70 bucks the frame is created 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 6 inches so a max I ‘d it is more than high adequate even for me and I stay at 6 foot for this model does come standard with the control board that permits up-and-down movement plus 3 memory spots with an LED readout to inform you the desk height the single motor style 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 sluggish is extremely quiet 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 beware here because this isn’t a hit piece this desk is 240 dollars more affordable than the comparable uplift design over 35% cheaper even if you update this flexi area test to the double motor three-stage style it still is available in a hundred and seventy dollars more affordable than the uplift but more affordable does not mean inexpensive this desk is still over four hundred dollars if I had 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 but the lateral stability of this desk the horizontal movement at this cost point it’s unacceptable it’s add insult to injury here they include a little safety baffle this little steel piece that mounts to the frame and covers a portion of this rotating driveshaft when
this desk sees any lateral movement at all the drive shaft strikes the noise and this baffle is absolutely infuriating to leading things off I decided to include rolling casters to this desk this was a $30 upgrade and two of those four casters arrived harmed too my prepare for this desk at this point is to lose the desk top and featured all together 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 up to 63 inches broad and 31 and a half inches deep so this will roll around the studio make it much easier to film items without having to change complex or heavy slider setups and what I personally pay $400 for that no I lucked out that I discovered uplift first that is a financial investment in quality office furnishings that will last you this at best seems like a cheaper replica of that it just does not 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 also which likewise feels eerily similar to among their rivals there’s a wealth of accessories you can get for the flexi area desk as much as and consisting of a foot massager and even a fixed stationary bicycle and I could spend another 10 minutes of our precious time covering various alternatives and devices I might but I believe I’m happier that they just sent a fundamental desk since as a standard desk I’m not a fan of the quality assurance at this price point and I do not think slapping on a bunch of additionals is the move when the core product isn’t what it should be they do provide a 30-day trial if you’re simply morbidly curious and they guarantee their desks for 3 years extremely desk is five years and uplift desk is seven years if you are Locktec/Flexispot+Livermore
in the market for a sit-stand desk they’re amazing mine’s been a life changer for me both in terms of video gaming and performance however I would invest the extra money it’s gon na take to get into a higher end manufacturer like uplift desk or extremely desk and I have not personally utilized very desk items so I can’t speak on it however their track record is great big thanks to flexi spot for sending this out for review regrettably I can not suggest this system and for the record I’m a hundred percent sure they would have happily replaced the parts that I had a concern with seeing as how both the desktop and the casters got here harmed but from a client perspective you ‘d most likely be truly delighted to get this in
