today we’re taking a look at a motorized sit-stand desk…Flexispot M2 – 35′′… you may have seen my evaluation on the uplift desk, if not …
In general, I need to say I like the Flexispot E7.
here are a lot of things to love about the Flexispot E7. In general, my experience was very positive.
It’s extremely simple to assemble, and it took my 11-year-old child and I (I mostly just monitored) under an hour from start to finish.
It’s super durable and can hold a great deal of weight. If you don’t think me, check out the video below of it operating while there’s a person lying down on it.
The electric raise/lower feature is not just easy to use and fast, however it’s likewise remarkably smooth and quiet.
You can configure your favored standing and sitting heights, and it will remember them, making it easy to switch between the two without giving it much thought.
On top of being functional, it likewise looks great in my workplace (I got the bamboo leading desk).
The width is likewise adjustable so it can suit smaller areas.
It appropriates for users with heights from 4′ 2″ all the way as much as 6′ 4″ (if you’re taller than 6′ 4″, you may wish to add a display stand to your workstation).
The cable tray keeps all of those charging cords organized, which is also helpful if your furry colleague likes to chew on or have fun with your cable televisions.
Flexispot has alternatives that are even more affordable than many other desks like it.
Flexispot Standing Desk Review – Cons
Cons: What I Didn’t Like About the Flexispot E7
Though the cons on this desk are very little, here are a few features that I wasn’t necessarily a substantial fan of:
The bundle that the desk came in was heavy, so bringing it inside was a group effort, but this is just an effect of how strong the Flexispot is.
The practical cable television tray was a little bit complicated to install. In the end, you ultimately slip it under screws, which wasn’t very clear from the directions.
You will require to buy an anti-fatigue mat to remain comfy, however this is a great concept 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 (because this suggested it was going to be durable) and likewise a little reluctant (because we all understand just how much of an obstacle putting together furniture can be).
Luckily, with the help of an educational 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 problem I have with assembly was the cable tray, which I found wasn’t explained well in the directions.
Is it worth getting a standing desk?
Once put together, I enjoy the streamlined appearance of this desk. I’m positive any of the many varied finishes that it is available in would look excellent in any office, and the adjustable width makes it simple to fit it in even the tiniest of office.
The quiet operation and height memory settings make it easy, effective, and quiet to change in between sitting and standing as often times as you want throughout the day.
This desk is strong. It can hold up to 335 lbs even while in operation, so if you have a significant home computer (or wish to sleep on it for some reason) it has you covered. It will also evenly distribute weight no matter how unbalanced the weight you place on it is, it will not wobble or wiggle.
because video is pretty kitted out as the desk we’re looking at today is quite standard I attempted to get as near to that as I might on uplifts site with equivalent 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 similar desk from uplift I attempt to get as close as possible with the uplift model is actually 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 however as you need to know by now does not impact 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 but it’s not delivering till completion of April at the earliest the desktop is an inch thick however it’s this standard laminate as you can perhaps get lacking even any cable television grommets for pass through the outdoors container
for the desktop was not damaged in any way which is absolutely bizarre due to the fact that I might shoot a 30-second b-roll montage of just the damage and flaws on this desktop scuffed scraped pitted just very rough male if I had purchased this I ‘d have been on the phone with customer support right away they did likewise handled to miss drilling the pilot holes where you can attach the control box to the desktop a great deal of having to do that myself without inadvertently drilling through the opposite 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 having to drill that top was really pretty 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 strangely absolutely where any type of cable management products whatsoever the frame on this system is a single motor dual phase style versus the double motor three-stage style that comes standard with the uplift desk this can be upgraded as well to both the dual phase dual motor and a three-stage double motor which pushes the cost of the desk up
an additional 70 dollars the frame is created 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 high adequate even for me and I stay at 6 foot for this model does come standard with the control panel that enables up-and-down movement plus three memory areas 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 changed the motor operation itself while it might be sluggish is extremely quiet as in barely audible this outside a price would be the one advantage I would offer this unit 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 similar uplift model over 35% less expensive even if you update this flexi spot test to the double motor three-stage style it still can be found in a hundred and seventy dollars more affordable than the uplift but less expensive doesn’t suggest inexpensive 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 strong even if max height I’ll absolutely give it that however the lateral stability of this desk the horizontal movement at this price point it’s inappropriate it’s add insult to injury here they include a little security baffle this little steel piece that installs to the frame and covers a portion of this rotating driveshaft when
this desk sees any lateral movement at all the drive shaft hits this baffle and the noise is definitely shocking to top things off I chose to include rolling casters to this desk this was a $30 upgrade and 2 of those 4 casters showed up harmed too my plan for this desk at this moment is to lose the desk top and came with completely and change 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 as much as 63 inches broad and 31 and a half inches deep so this will roll around the studio make it simpler to movie items 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 furniture that will last you this at best feels like a more affordable replica of that it simply does not feel quality and the difference in between this desk and my primary desk is night and day do do not hesitate to take a look at their website too which likewise feels strangely comparable to one of their rivals there’s a wealth of devices you can get for the flexi area desk up to and consisting of a foot massager and even a stationary stationary bicycle and I might spend another 10 minutes of our valuable time covering different options and accessories I might but I think I’m happier that they only sent out a fundamental desk due to the fact that as a basic desk I’m not a fan of the quality assurance at this rate point and I don’t think slapping on a bunch of bonus is the move when the core product isn’t what it need to be they do offer a 30-day trial if you’re just 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 M2 – 35′′
in the market for a sit-stand desk they’re incredible mine’s been a life changer for me both in regards to gaming and productivity but I would spend the extra money it’s gon na take to get into a higher end maker like uplift desk or really desk and I haven’t personally used extremely desk items so I can’t speak on it however their track record is great big thanks to flexi area for sending this out for evaluation sadly I can not recommend this unit and for the record I’m a hundred percent sure they would have gladly replaced the parts that I had an issue with viewing as how both the desktop and the casters got here harmed however from a client standpoint you ‘d most likely be actually thrilled to get this in
