My Honest Review FlexiSpot E7 Pro

My Honest Review of the FlexiSpot E7 Pro Standing Desk: Is the Pro Worth It?

Among our team, we’ve tried just about every standing desk out there.

We’ve done a review on the Vari desk, a comparison between the E7 and IKEA BEKANT desk, and even a review on the M3 riser that can convert any desk into a standing one.

But now, our favorite Flexispot E7 has gotten an upgrade. So you know we had to try it.

Here’s what we think of the Flexispot E7 Pro.

FlexiSpot E7 Pro Standing Desk Review

FlexiSpot Built Standing

I upgraded from an old Ikea desk, and I’m so glad I did.

The desk is large, but not bulky. It looks sleek, operates smoothly and quietly, and comes with a large cable tray plus clips to keep everything organized. The memory settings are great because I’m able to just push a button once, and it remembers the exact height I like it. If I could purchase it again, I might’ve gotten a different tabletop, but that comes down to preference and budget.

FlexiSpot Boxed

It has enough room for my entire work-from-home setup and is sturdy enough that I feel confident nothing will fall off. In fact, I tried adjusting it with a cup of water on the tabletop, and it barely moved.

While it is on the pricier side, I use it every day so I think the investment is well worth it. Whether you’re switching from another standing desk (which is worth it!)  or if this is your first one, I recommend it.

The construction process was the only part I had an issue with. It comes in two heavy boxes (one for the frame, one for the top) that I had to lug up four flights of stairs (!!!), and I definitely had to enlist help to carry the frame up.

FlexiSpot Unpacked

That being said, the tools provided were sturdy and useful (most other times, I reach for my own tools, but I’ll definitely be using the tools provided by FlexiSpot for other projects.)

FlexiSpot Tools

The build took me about 1 hour to put together, but that’s because I'm only used to building Ikea furniture with clear instructions, and, unfortunately, the FlexiSpot instructions were not all that clear.

For example, it doesn’t tell you which was in front or back for certain parts, so there were times I had screwed parts in but had to redo it because I had it flipped.

Also, I had some trouble with step #2. The 7.87 inch mention was very confusing, and I still don't know why it was included (that was the only place I could screw the frame in, so I couldn't have even adjusted the placement if I wanted to).

FlexiSpot E7 Pro Instructions

The tabletop I received, which is the gaming line, didn’t have all the screw holes needed. Specifically for the cable tray in the back. I ended up pre-drilling and creating my own, which wasn’t too bad.

I did end up enlisting the help of my wife, but I’m sure a competent person wouldn’t have as much trouble as I did. However, I don’t think I’m the worst at building furniture, so take that as you will.

P.S. I got an anti-fatigue mat and it was a game-changer, so I highly recommend getting one for your own E7 Pro Plus or any standing desk for that matter.

Is the FlexiSpot E7 Pro Worth It?

Although it’s definitely on the pricier side, I say the FlexiSpot E7 Pro is definitely worth it.

With all of the features, the sturdiness, and the smooth, quiet operation, this sit-stand desk is the perfect way to incorporate the health benefits of standing at work into your daily WFH routine.

Flexispot Review - Pros

Pros: What I Like About the FlexiSpot E7 Pro

Highlights of this new desk include its sturdiness, quality, height memory settings, and organizational accessories to keep things tidy.

  • It’s a sturdy boy! I'm not worried at all that I have a big monitor and laptop and a bunch of other accessories on there. While sitting, while it's in the middle of rising, or when in standing mode – no concerns about build quality.
  • Height memory settings are solid – just a single click of a button (4 options/memory settings – one for standing, one for sitting, and two custom ones you can set.)
  • The desk is quiet and smooth (the cup of water I have on my desk barely moves) when it rises, and relatively quick. I wasn’t twiddling my thumbs during this process.
  • I’m 5’10” and have no issues with adjusting height – this will work for people taller than me and shorter.
  • I got a magnetic sleeve to hide the bulk of the wires (ones that connect for power and come from each leg to the center module) – I love this, it really does its job – but please excuse my mess of cables in the background for my monitor, dock, and such – I promise I’ll clean it up!
  • In addition, it comes with a cable tray, which is super convenient to hold your charger and any other wires. It allows you to have a very clean setup.

Flexispot Standing Desk Review - Cons

Cons: What I Didn’t Like About the FlexiSpot E7 Pro

The biggest shortcomings of the FlexiSpot E7 Pro are the unclear instructions and slight wobbliness.

  • Some parts of the instructions weren’t clear – but it's not hard to figure it out in the end
  • I was missing holes for my desk that I had to pre-drill myself, and I was left with some extra screws (which I shouldn’t have had), but the desk is holding together!
  • I initially had both my monitors on a mount – and the desk was pretty wobbly. I took the bigger one off the mount and tried to distribute the weight of items across the desk, and less wobbly. In the standing position, there is a slight wobble for me, but again, it could be due to the way I put it together. But I did see other people online had issues with it being wobbly.
