today we’re taking a look at a motorized sit-stand desk…Flexispot Table… you might have seen my review on the uplift desk, if not …
In general, I need to state I like the Flexispot E7.
here are a lot of things to love about the Flexispot E7. In general, my experience was extremely favorable.
It’s really easy to put together, and it took my 11-year-old child and I (I primarily simply supervised) under an hour from start to finish.
It’s super sturdy and can hold a great deal of weight. Inspect out the video below of it operating while there’s an individual lying down on it if you don’t believe me.
The electrical raise/lower feature is not just easy to use and quickly, but it’s likewise remarkably smooth and peaceful.
You can configure your favored standing and sitting heights, and it will remember them, making it easy to switch in between the two without providing it much idea.
On top of being practical, it also looks fantastic in my office (I got the bamboo top 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 monitor stand to your workstation).
The cable tray keeps all of those charging cables arranged, which is also valuable if your furry colleague likes to chew on or have fun with your cables.
Flexispot has options that are even more inexpensive 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 minimal, here are a couple of functions that I wasn’t necessarily a substantial fan of:
The plan that the desk was available in was heavy, so bringing it inside was a group effort, but this is simply a consequence of how sturdy the Flexispot is.
The hassle-free cable television tray was a little bit confusing to install. In the end, you ultimately slip it under screws, which wasn’t really clear from the guidelines.
You will need to purchase an anti-fatigue mat to stay comfy, however 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 ecstatic (given that this meant it was going to be tough) and also a little hesitant (since all of us understand how much of a difficulty assembling furnishings can be).
Thankfully, with the help of a training YouTube link, it took me only 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 found wasn’t discussed well in the instructions.
Is it worth getting a standing desk?
Once put together, I enjoy the sleek look of this desk. I’m confident any of the many diverse surfaces that it comes in would look fantastic in any office, and the adjustable width makes it easy to fit it in even the smallest of office.
The peaceful operation and height memory settings make it easy, effective, and quiet to switch 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 substantial desktop (or want to take a nap on it for some reason) it has you covered. It will likewise equally disperse weight no matter how out of balance the weight you place on it is, it won’t wobble or wiggle.
because video is pretty 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 site with equivalent configurations the flexi area desk we’re looking at today will run you about four hundred and 10 dollars versus 6 hundred and fifty for a comparable desk from uplift I try to get as close as possible with the uplift design is in fact 5 inches longer but you can do a lot with 5 inches boom yes now for openness flexi area did send this desk out for evaluation however as you need to 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 but it’s not delivering till 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 grommets for go through the outdoors container
for the desktop was not harmed in any way which is absolutely unusual because I could shoot a 30-second b-roll montage of just the damage and defects on this desktop scuffed scraped pitted just very rough man if I had purchased this I ‘d have been on the phone with customer care instantly they did also 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 unintentionally 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 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 television management materials whatsoever the frame on this unit is a single motor dual phase style versus the double 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 presses the expense of the desk up
an extra 70 dollars 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 range from simply under 28 inches to just over forty 7 point six inches so a max I ‘d it is more than tall adequate even for me and I stay at 6 foot for this model does come basic with the control board that enables up-and-down movement plus three memory areas with an LED readout to inform 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 sluggish is very peaceful as in barely audible this outside a cost would be the one advantage I would offer this system over the uplift desk and I wish to take care here since this isn’t a hit piece this desk is 240 dollars less expensive than the equivalent uplift model over 35% less expensive even if you upgrade this flexi spot test to the dual motor three-stage style it still comes in a hundred and seventy dollars more affordable than the uplift however more affordable 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 certainly offer it that but the lateral stability of this desk the horizontal movement at this cost point it’s unacceptable it’s add fuel to the fire here they include a little safety 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 strikes this baffle and the noise is absolutely infuriating to top things off I chose to include rolling casters to this desk this was a $30 upgrade and 2 of those four casters got here harmed too my plan for this desk at this point is to lose the desk top and included completely 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 large and 31 and a half inches deep so this will roll around the studio make it easier to movie items without needing to change complex or heavy slider setups and what I personally pay $400 for that no I lucked out that I found uplift first that is an investment in quality office furnishings that will last you this at finest feels like a cheaper imitation of that it just does not feel quality and the distinction in between this desk and my primary desk is night and day do feel free to check out their site as well which likewise feels eerily comparable to among their competitors there’s a wealth of devices you can get for the flexi spot desk approximately and consisting of a foot massager and even a fixed stationary bicycle and I might invest another 10 minutes of our precious time covering different options and accessories I could but I believe I’m happier that they only sent out a standard 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 lot of bonus is the relocation when the core item isn’t what it should be they do offer a 30-day trial if you’re just morbidly curious and they guarantee their desks for 3 years very desk is 5 years and uplift desk is seven years if you are Flexispot Table
in the market for a sit-stand desk they’re remarkable mine’s been a life changer for me both in regards to video gaming and performance but I would spend the money it’s gon na require to enter a higher end producer like uplift desk or really desk and I haven’t personally utilized extremely desk products so I can’t speak on it however their credibility is excellent huge thanks to flexi area for sending this out for review regrettably I can not advise this unit 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 arrived damaged but from a consumer perspective you ‘d most likely be truly delighted to get this in
