today we’re having a look at a motorized sit-stand desk…Flexispot Hamburg… you might have seen my evaluation on the uplift desk, if not …
In general, I need to state I like the Flexispot E7.
here are a lot of things to like about the Flexispot E7. In general, my experience was really favorable.
It’s extremely easy to assemble, and it took my 11-year-old daughter and I (I mostly simply monitored) under an hour from start to finish.
It’s super tough and can hold a lot of weight. Check out the video listed below of it operating while there’s an individual lying down on it if you don’t think me.
The electrical raise/lower feature is not just easy to use and quickly, however it’s also surprisingly smooth and peaceful.
You can set your favored standing and sitting heights, and it will remember them, making it simple to switch between the two without providing it much idea.
On top of being practical, it also looks excellent in my office (I got the bamboo leading desk).
The width is also 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 might wish to include a monitor stand to your workstation).
The cable tray keeps all of those charging cables organized, which is also helpful if your furry colleague likes to chew on or have fun with your cables.
Flexispot has alternatives that are far more inexpensive than numerous other desks like it.
Flexispot Standing Desk Evaluation – Cons
Cons: What I Didn’t Like About the Flexispot E7
The cons on this desk are very little, here are a couple of features that I wasn’t always a huge fan of:
The plan that the desk came in was heavy, so bringing it inside was a group effort, however this is just a consequence of how sturdy the Flexispot is.
The convenient cable television tray was a little bit confusing to set up. In the end, you ultimately slip it under screws, which wasn’t very clear from the directions.
You will need to buy an anti-fatigue mat to stay comfortable, but this is an excellent 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 fired up (because this suggested it was going to be tough) and also a little hesitant (because we all know how much of a difficulty putting together furnishings can be).
Fortunately, with the help of an instructional YouTube link, it took me only around 42 minutes to put together. Scratch that, it took my 11-year-old daughter, 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 explained well in the guidelines.
Is it worth getting a standing desk?
Once put together, I love the smooth look of this desk. I’m confident any of the many varied finishes that it can be found in would look terrific in any workplace, and the adjustable width makes it simple to fit it in even the tiniest of home offices.
The quiet operation and height memory settings make it easy, effective, and quiet to change in between sitting and standing as sometimes as you desire throughout the day.
This desk is sturdy. It can hold up to 335 pounds even while in operation, so if you have a significant desktop computer (or wish to sleep on it for some reason) it has you covered. It will also evenly disperse weight no matter how out of balance the weight you place on it is, it won’t wiggle or wobble.
in that video is pretty kitted out as the desk we’re looking at today is pretty fundamental I tried to get as near that as I might on uplifts site with equivalent setups the flexi spot desk we’re taking a look at today will run you about four hundred and ten dollars versus six hundred and fifty for a similar desk from uplift I attempt to get as close as possible with the uplift model is in fact 5 inches longer however you can do a lot with 5 inches boom yes now for openness flexi spot did send this desk out for evaluation but as you should know by now does not 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 but it’s not delivering till the end of April at the earliest the desktop is an inch thick however it’s this standard laminate as you can potentially get lacking even any cable television grommets for go through the outdoors container
for the desktop was not harmed in any way which is absolutely bizarre since I could shoot a 30-second b-roll montage of simply the damage and flaws on this desktop scuffed scraped pitted simply incredibly rough male if I had bought this I ‘d have been on the phone with customer support immediately they did likewise handled to miss 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 opposite of the desktop so yeah pilot holes in wood screws is how you’re gon na be attaching 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 entire 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 unusually absolutely where any kind of cable management products whatsoever the frame on this system is a single motor double phase style versus the dual motor three-stage style that comes standard with the uplift desk this can be updated too to both the double phase dual motor and a three-stage dual motor which pushes the cost of the desk up
an additional 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 6 inches so a max I ‘d it is more than tall sufficient even for me and I remain at 6 foot for this design does come standard with the control panel that permits up-and-down motion plus three memory spots with an LED readout to inform you the desk height the single motor style uses this drive shaft assembly which has to be changed as the width of the desk is adjusted the motor operation itself while it might be sluggish is very peaceful as in barely audible this outside a cost would be the one advantage I would provide this unit over the uplift desk and I want to beware here since this isn’t a hit piece this desk is 240 dollars less expensive than the equivalent uplift design over 35% less expensive even if you update this flexi spot test to the double motor three-stage design it still is available in a hundred and seventy dollars less expensive than the uplift but less expensive does not suggest 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 definitely provide it that but the lateral stability of this desk the horizontal movement at this price point it’s inappropriate it’s add insult to injury here they consist of a little safety 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 strikes this baffle and the sound is absolutely infuriating to leading things off I decided to add rolling casters to this desk this was a $30 upgrade and 2 of those four casters got here harmed also my prepare 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 use it as an adjustable image table which you can’t do this frame will accommodate desktops as much as 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 initially that is a financial investment in quality office furnishings that will last you this at finest feels like a more affordable imitation of that it just does not feel quality and the difference between this desk and my main desk is night and day do feel free to have a look at their site too which also feels strangely 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 invest another 10 minutes of our valuable time covering numerous alternatives and devices I might however I believe I’m happier that they only sent out a fundamental desk due to the fact that as a standard desk I’m not a fan of the quality assurance at this price point and I don’t believe slapping on a lot of bonus is the relocation when the core product isn’t what it need to be they do use a 30-day trial if you’re simply morbidly curious and they warranty their desks for 3 years very desk is 5 years and uplift desk is 7 years if you are Flexispot Hamburg
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 but I would invest the extra money it’s gon na take to enter into a higher end manufacturer like uplift desk or very desk and I haven’t personally used very desk items so I can’t speak on it however their track record is great huge thanks to flexi area for sending this out for review unfortunately 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 showed up damaged however from a consumer perspective you ‘d probably be really excited to get this in
