today we’re having 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 should say I like the Flexispot E7.
here are a lot of things to love about the Flexispot E7. In general, my experience was really favorable.
It’s really easy to assemble, and it took my 11-year-old child and I (I primarily just monitored) under an hour from start to finish.
It’s incredibly durable and can hold a great deal of weight. If you do not think me, take a look at the video listed below of it operating while there’s a person resting on it.
The electrical raise/lower function is not just easy to use and quickly, however it’s also remarkably smooth and peaceful.
You can set your favored standing and sitting heights, and it will remember them, making it easy to switch in between the two without giving it much thought.
On top of being functional, it likewise looks fantastic in my office (I got the bamboo top desk).
The width is likewise adjustable so it can suit smaller sized areas.
It’s suitable for users with heights from 4′ 2″ all the way as much as 6′ 4″ (if you’re taller than 6′ 4″, you might want to add a screen stand to your workstation).
The cable tray keeps all of those charging cables organized, which is also valuable if your furry coworker likes to chew on or play with your cables.
Flexispot has choices 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
The cons on this desk are minimal, here are a few features that I wasn’t always a big fan of:
The package that the desk came in was heavy, so bringing it inside was a group effort, but this is simply a consequence of how tough the Flexispot is.
The convenient cable television tray was a bit complicated 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 remain comfortable, but this is an excellent 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 thrilled (given that this meant it was going to be tough) and likewise a little hesitant (since we all understand just how much of a challenge assembling furnishings can be).
Luckily, with the help of an instructional YouTube link, it took me just 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 hang-up I have with assembly was the cable tray, which I discovered wasn’t explained well in the instructions.
Is it worth getting a standing desk?
Once assembled, I like the sleek appearance of this desk. I’m positive any of the many diverse surfaces that it is available in would look great in any workplace, and the adjustable width makes it easy to fit it in even the tiniest of office.
The peaceful operation and height memory settings make it easy, efficient, and peaceful to switch in between sitting and standing as sometimes 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 home computer (or want to take a nap on it for some reason) it has you covered. It will also evenly distribute weight no matter how unbalanced the weight you put on it is, it will not wobble or wiggle.
in that video is pretty kitted out as the desk we’re looking at today is pretty basic I tried to get as close to that as I could on uplifts website with similar setups the flexi area desk we’re taking a look at today will run you about four hundred and 10 dollars versus six hundred and fifty for a comparable desk from uplift I try to get as close as possible with the uplift design is really 5 inches longer but you can do a lot with five inches boom yes now for transparency flexi area did send this desk out for evaluation however as you need to understand by now doesn’t affect my evaluation 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 shipping till completion of April at the earliest the desktop is an inch thick but it’s this fundamental laminate as you can possibly get lacking even any cable grommets for pass through the outdoors container
for the desktop was not harmed in any way which is entirely bizarre due to the fact that I might shoot a 30-second b-roll montage of simply the damage and defects on this desktop scuffed scraped pitted simply super rough male if I had actually acquired this I ‘d have been on the phone with customer support instantly they did likewise handled to miss out on drilling the pilot holes where you can attach the control box to the desktop a great deal of needing 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 connecting 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 in fact 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 part to support motorized function unusually definitely where any type of cable television management products whatsoever the frame on this unit is a single motor dual stage design versus the double motor three-stage style that comes requirement with the uplift desk this can be updated too to both the double stage double motor and a three-stage double motor which presses the cost of the desk up
an extra 70 bucks 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 just under 28 inches to simply over forty 7 point 6 inches so a max I ‘d it is more than high 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 3 memory spots with an LED readout to tell 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 slow is very peaceful as in barely audible this outside a cost would be the one advantage I would give this system over the uplift desk and I want to be careful here since this isn’t a hit piece this desk is 240 dollars more affordable than the equivalent uplift model over 35% less expensive even if you upgrade this flexi area test to the dual motor three-stage design it still can be found in a hundred and seventy dollars less expensive than the uplift but less expensive does not mean low-cost 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 absolutely provide it that but the lateral stability of this desk the horizontal movement at this rate point it’s undesirable it’s add fuel to the fire here they include a little security baffle this little steel piece that mounts to the frame and covers a part of this rotating driveshaft when
this desk sees any lateral motion at all the drive shaft strikes this baffle and the sound is absolutely shocking to top things off I decided to add rolling casters to this desk this was a $30 upgrade and two of those four casters arrived damaged as well my prepare for this desk at this point is to lose the desk top and included all together and change it with a white laminate lemon table from Ikea and use it as an adjustable photo table which you can’t do this frame will accommodate desktops as much as 63 inches wide and 31 and a half inches deep so this will roll around the studio make it simpler to film items without having to change 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 workplace furniture that will last you this at best feels like a cheaper replica of that it just doesn’t feel quality and the difference in between this desk and my primary desk is night and day do do not hesitate to check out their site as well which also feels strangely similar to among their competitors there’s a wealth of accessories you can get for the flexi area desk approximately and consisting of a foot massager and even a stationary exercise bike and I might invest another 10 minutes of our precious time covering various choices and accessories I might however I think 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 rate point and I do not believe slapping on a bunch of bonus is the relocation when the core product isn’t what it need to be they do provide a 30-day trial if you’re simply morbidly curious and they service warranty their desks for three years very desk is five years and uplift desk is seven years if you are Flexispot Table
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 but I would spend the additional money it’s gon na take to enter into a greater end maker like uplift desk or extremely desk and I have not personally utilized extremely desk products so I can’t speak on it but their credibility is great big thanks to flexi spot for sending this out for evaluation sadly I can not suggest this unit and for the record I’m a hundred percent sure they would have gladly replaced the parts that I had a concern with viewing as how both the desktop and the casters got here damaged however from a client perspective you ‘d probably be actually delighted to get this in
