today we’re having a look at a motorized sit-stand desk…Flexispot H2B… you might have seen my review on the uplift desk, if not …
In general, I need to say I like the Flexispot E7.
here are lots of things to love about the Flexispot E7. In general, my experience was extremely favorable.
It’s extremely simple to assemble, and it took my 11-year-old child and I (I mostly simply supervised) under an hour from start to finish.
It’s extremely tough and can hold a great deal of weight. If you don’t believe me, check out the video below of it running while there’s an individual resting on it.
The electrical raise/lower feature is not only easy to use and fast, but it’s also surprisingly smooth and peaceful.
You can program your favored standing and sitting heights, and it will remember them, making it simple to switch between the two without providing it much thought.
On top of being functional, it also looks great in my workplace (I got the bamboo top desk).
The width is likewise adjustable so it can fit in smaller sized areas.
It’s suitable for users with heights from 4′ 2″ all the way up to 6′ 4″ (if you’re taller than 6′ 4″, you may want to add a screen stand to your workstation).
The cable television tray keeps all of those charging cables arranged, which is also useful if your furry colleague likes to chew on or have fun with your cable televisions.
Flexispot has options that are far more cost effective than many other desks like it.
Flexispot Standing Desk Review – Cons
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 huge fan of:
The package that the desk can be found in was heavy, so bringing it inside was a group effort, but this is simply a repercussion of how strong the Flexispot is.
The convenient cable tray was a little bit confusing to install. In the end, you ultimately slip it under screws, which wasn’t very clear from the directions.
You will need to purchase an anti-fatigue mat to stay comfortable, but this is a great concept 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 excited (considering that this meant it was going to be sturdy) and also a little reluctant (because all of us understand just how much of a challenge 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 tray, which I found wasn’t discussed well in the directions.
Is it worth getting a standing desk?
Once put together, I love the sleek look of this desk. I’m positive any of the many diverse finishes that it is available in would look fantastic in any office, and the adjustable width makes it easy to fit it in even the tiniest of home offices.
The quiet operation and height memory settings make it easy, efficient, and quiet to change in between sitting and standing as often times as you desire throughout the day.
This desk is tough. It can hold up to 335 pounds even while in operation, so if you have a substantial desktop computer (or want to sleep on it for some reason) it has you covered. It will likewise evenly distribute weight no matter how out of balance the weight you place on it is, it will not wiggle or wobble.
in that video is pretty kitted out as the desk we’re looking at today is quite basic I attempted to get as close to that as I could on uplifts site with comparable setups 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 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 ought to know by now doesn’t affect 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 till the end of April at the earliest the desktop is an inch thick but it’s this fundamental laminate as you can possibly get doing not have even any cable grommets for pass through the outside carton
for the desktop was not damaged in any way which is utterly bizarre due to the fact that I could shoot a 30-second b-roll montage of simply the damage and defects on this desktop scuffed scraped pitted just incredibly rough guy if I had actually acquired this I ‘d have been on the phone with customer care immediately they did likewise handled to miss out on drilling the pilot holes where you can attach 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 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 needing to drill that top was really quite straightforward the whole 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 definitely where any type of cable television management materials whatsoever the frame on this unit is a single motor double stage style versus the double motor three-stage style that comes standard with the uplift desk this can be updated as well to both the dual phase double motor and a three-stage double motor which presses the expense of the desk up
an extra 70 bucks 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 simply over forty seven point six inches so a max I ‘d it is more than high enough even for me and I remain at 6 foot for this design does come standard with the control panel that allows for up-and-down motion plus 3 memory areas with an LED readout to tell you the desk height the single motor design utilizes this drive shaft assembly which has to be adjusted as the width of the desk is adjusted the motor operation itself while it might be slow is very quiet as in barely audible this outside a price would be the one benefit I would give this unit over the uplift desk and I want to be careful here because this isn’t a hit piece this desk is 240 dollars cheaper than the comparable uplift model over 35% less expensive even if you update this flexi area test to the double motor three-stage style it still can be found in a hundred and seventy dollars more affordable than the uplift however less expensive does not suggest inexpensive this desk is still over four hundred dollars if I had actually 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 definitely give it that however the lateral stability of this desk the horizontal motion at this cost point it’s undesirable it’s add insult to injury here they consist of 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 this baffle and the noise is definitely shocking to top things off I decided to add rolling casters to this desk this was a $30 upgrade and two of those 4 casters got here damaged too my plan for this desk at this moment is to lose the desk top and included all together and replace it with a white laminate lemon table from Ikea and utilize it as an adjustable picture 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 much easier to movie items without having 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 a financial investment in quality workplace furnishings that will last you this at best seems like a more affordable imitation of that it simply doesn’t feel quality and the distinction between this desk and my primary desk is night and day do feel free to take a look at their website also which also feels strangely similar to among their competitors there’s a wealth of devices you can get for the flexi spot desk approximately and including a foot massager and even a fixed stationary bicycle and I might spend another 10 minutes of our precious time covering various alternatives and devices I could but I think I’m better that they just sent a standard desk due to the fact that as a fundamental desk I’m not a fan of the quality assurance at this cost point and I don’t think slapping on a lot of bonus is the relocation 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 service warranty their desks for 3 years really desk is five years and uplift desk is 7 years if you are Flexispot H2B
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 productivity however I would invest the extra money it’s gon na require to enter into a greater end maker like uplift desk or really desk and I haven’t personally utilized extremely desk items so I can’t speak on it but their credibility is great big thanks to flexi area for sending this out for review sadly 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 concern with viewing as how both the desktop and the casters showed up harmed but from a customer standpoint you ‘d most likely be truly delighted to get this in
