The bundle that the desk can be found in was heavy…Flexispot Ec1… so bringing it inside was a group effort, but this is simply a repercussion of how strong the Flexispot is.
The practical cable tray was a bit complicated to set up. In the end, you ultimately slip it under screws, which wasn’t extremely clear from the instructions.
You will need to purchase an anti-fatigue mat to remain comfortable, but this is a good idea for any standing desks, so I can’t fault Flexispot for that.
When it got here and I saw how heavy it was, I was both fired up (since this implied it was going to be durable) and likewise a little hesitant (since all of us understand how much of a difficulty putting together furniture can be).
Thankfully, with the help of an educational YouTube link, it took me just around 42 minutes to assemble. Scratch that, it took my 11-year-old daughter, with some supervision from me, from start to finish. The only hang-up I have with assembly was the cable television tray, which I found wasn’t described well in the guidelines.
When put together, I enjoy the smooth look of this desk. I’m positive any of the many diverse finishes that it is available 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 simple, efficient, and quiet to switch in between sitting and standing as often times as you desire throughout the day.
Lastly, this desk is tough. It can hold up to 335 pounds even while in operation, so if you have a substantial desktop (or want to sleep on it for some reason) it has you covered. It will also uniformly disperse weight no matter how out of balance the weight you put on it is, it won’t wiggle or wobble.
because video is quite kitted out as the desk we’re looking at today is pretty fundamental I attempted to get as near that as I could on uplifts website with equivalent configurations the flexi area desk we’re looking at today will run you about four hundred and ten dollars versus six hundred and fifty for a similar desk from uplift I try 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 openness flexi area did send this desk out for evaluation however as you need to understand by now doesn’t 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 until completion of April at the earliest the desktop is an inch thick however it’s this standard laminate as you can potentially get doing not have even any cable television grommets for travel through the outdoors carton
for the desktop was not harmed in any way which is utterly unusual because I could shoot a 30-second b-roll montage of simply the damage and defects on this desktop scuffed scraped pitted simply very rough male if I had purchased this I ‘d have been on the phone with client service instantly they did also managed to miss drilling the pilot holes where you can connect the control box to the desktop a lot of needing 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 actually 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 absolutely where any kind of cable management materials whatsoever the frame on this unit is a single motor dual phase style versus the dual motor three-stage style that comes standard with the uplift desk this can be updated as well to both the dual phase dual motor and a three-stage dual motor which presses 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 2nd the height can vary from just under 28 inches to simply over forty seven 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 design does come standard with the control panel that permits up-and-down movement plus three memory areas with an LED readout to tell you the desk height the single motor style uses 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 sluggish is extremely quiet as in barely audible this outside a price would be the one benefit 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 cheaper than the equivalent uplift design over 35% less expensive even if you upgrade this flexi spot test to the double motor three-stage style it still can be found in a hundred and seventy dollars cheaper than the uplift however more affordable doesn’t suggest low-cost this desk is still over four hundred dollars if I had paid over $400 for this desk I ‘d have a problem with that the front to back stability of this desk is solid even if max height I’ll definitely offer it that however the lateral stability of this desk the horizontal movement 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 installs to the frame and covers a part of this turning driveshaft when
this desk sees any lateral motion at all the drive shaft strikes this baffle and the sound is definitely shocking to leading things off I decided to add rolling casters to this desk this was a $30 upgrade and 2 of those four casters arrived harmed also my prepare for this desk at this point is to lose the desk top and featured entirely 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 broad and 31 and a half inches deep so this will roll around the studio make it much easier to film items without having to adjust 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 workplace furnishings that will last you this at finest seems like a less expensive imitation of that it just does not feel quality and the distinction between this desk and my primary desk is night and day do feel free to have a look at their website too which likewise feels eerily comparable to among their competitors there’s a wealth of accessories you can get for the flexi spot desk as much as and including a foot massager and even a stationary stationary bicycle and I could spend another 10 minutes of our valuable time covering numerous options and devices I could but I think I’m better that they just sent a standard desk due to the fact that as a standard desk I’m not a fan of the quality control at this rate point and I do not believe slapping on a bunch of extras is the move when the core item isn’t what it ought to be they do offer a 30-day trial if you’re just morbidly curious and they guarantee their desks for three years extremely desk is 5 years and uplift desk is seven years if you are Flexispot Ec1
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 performance but I would spend the money it’s gon na take to get into a higher end producer like uplift desk or very desk and I haven’t personally used very desk items so I can’t speak on it however their reputation is excellent huge thanks to flexi area for sending this out for evaluation sadly I can not recommend this system and for the record I’m a hundred percent sure they would have gladly changed the parts that I had an issue with seeing as how both the desktop and the casters showed up harmed but from a consumer viewpoint you ‘d probably be actually delighted to get this in
