Flexispot Standing Desk Review …Loktec/Flexispot…
Cons: What I Didn’t Like About the Flexispot E7
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 was available 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 little bit confusing to set up. In the end, you eventually slip it under screws, which wasn’t very clear from the guidelines.
You will require to purchase an anti-fatigue mat to remain comfortable, however this is an excellent 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 fired up (since this meant it was going to be durable) and likewise a little reluctant (due to the fact that all of us know just how much of a challenge putting together furniture can be).
Thankfully, with the help of a training YouTube link, it took me just around 42 minutes to assemble. 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 tray, which I discovered wasn’t discussed well in the instructions.
As soon as put together, I like the streamlined appearance of this desk. I’m confident any of the many diverse surfaces that it comes in would look great in any workplace, and the adjustable width makes it simple to fit it in even the tiniest of office.
The peaceful operation and height memory settings make it simple, efficient, and peaceful to change between sitting and standing as sometimes as you want throughout the day.
Finally, this desk is strong. It can hold up to 335 lbs even while in operation, so if you have a hefty home computer (or wish to take a nap on it for some reason) it has you covered. It will likewise uniformly disperse 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 looking at today is pretty standard I attempted to get as close to that as I could on uplifts website with similar configurations 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 really 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 evaluation however as you should understand by now does not impact my evaluation in any way the desktop here is 55 inches broad 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 completion of April at the earliest the desktop is an inch thick but it’s this standard laminate as you can perhaps get doing not have even any cable television grommets for pass through the outside container
for the desktop was not harmed in any way which is utterly strange since I might shoot a 30-second b-roll montage of just the damage and flaws on this desktop scuffed scraped pitted simply very rough guy if I had actually bought this I ‘d have been on the phone with client service immediately they did likewise managed to miss drilling the pilot holes where you can connect the control box to the desktop a great deal 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 embedded metal inserts that we saw on the uplift desk so assembly aside from needing to drill that top was actually 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 element to support motorized function strangely definitely where any sort of cable television management products whatsoever the frame on this system is a single motor double stage style versus the dual motor three-stage style that comes standard with the uplift desk this can be updated too to both the dual phase double motor and a three-stage double motor which pushes the cost 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 range from just under 28 inches to simply over forty 7 point six inches so a max I ‘d it is more than tall enough even for me and I stay at 6 foot for this design does come standard with the control board that allows for up-and-down motion plus three memory areas with an LED readout to tell you the desk height the single motor design utilizes 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 extremely quiet as in barely audible this outside a cost would be the one benefit I would offer this system over the uplift desk and I want to take care here because this isn’t a hit piece this desk is 240 dollars cheaper than the comparable uplift model over 35% more affordable even if you update this flexi spot test to the double motor three-stage style it still is available in a hundred and seventy dollars cheaper than the uplift but cheaper does not mean 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 motion at this price point it’s undesirable it’s rub salt in the wound here they consist of a little security baffle this little steel piece that installs to the frame and covers a portion of this turning driveshaft when
this desk sees any lateral motion at all the drive shaft hits this baffle and the noise is definitely frustrating to top things off I decided to add rolling casters to this desk this was a $30 upgrade and two of those four casters got here damaged also my plan for this desk at this point is to lose the desk top and came with entirely and change it with a white laminate lemon table from Ikea and utilize 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 much easier to movie 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 a financial investment in quality office furniture that will last you this at finest seems like a cheaper imitation of that it simply doesn’t feel quality and the difference between this desk and my main desk is night and day do do not hesitate to take a look at their website too which also feels eerily comparable to one of their competitors there’s a wealth of accessories you can get for the flexi spot desk as much as and consisting of a foot massager and even a stationary exercise bike and I could invest another 10 minutes of our valuable time covering various choices and accessories I could but I believe I’m better that they only sent a basic desk due to the fact that as a basic desk I’m not a fan of the quality assurance at this cost point and I do not believe slapping on a bunch of extras is the move when the core item isn’t what it ought to be they do offer 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 Loktec/Flexispot
in the market for a sit-stand desk they’re amazing mine’s been a life changer for me both in regards to video gaming and productivity however I would spend the additional money it’s gon na take to enter a greater end producer like uplift desk or very desk and I haven’t personally utilized really desk items so I can’t speak on it but their credibility is very good huge thanks to flexi area for sending this out for review unfortunately I can not recommend this unit 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 showed up damaged but from a client standpoint you ‘d probably be truly delighted to get this in
