Can Flexispot EN1 live up to its brand name? Let’s delve deeper into the details.

Flexispot Review - Pros

Pros: What We Like About the Flexispot EN1

Overall, we think the Flexispot EN1 is worth every dollar, even at its $359.99 MSRP. Here are reasons why we would recommend this product:

  • Desktop size: Desks should be big enough to fit work essentials without compromising ergonomics. The 48” x 24” is perfect for our employees’ needs. It offers enough space for a basic work setup, including a desktop, a scanner/printer, and a phone.
  • Motor strength: The table moves up and down quickly without being too noisy, which means we’re not anywhere near the 154-lb weight capacity. Based on our logs, the heaviest tabletops in our office only weigh about 75 lbs.
  • Height flexibility: With a range of 29” to 48.6”, the Flexispot EN1 offers the perfect sit/stand height for most people. We love how even our 6’0 IT specialist found the ergonomics ideal.
  • Stability: Whether employees use this product standing or seated, it barely wobbles. The desktop only moves with extreme force; other than that, it feels safe and secure.
  • Aesthetics: While the table doesn’t look like an avant-garde creation, we find that the white desktop works well for content creation. It allows us to produce beautiful flat-lay and B-roll content.

Flexispot Standing Desk Review - Cons

Cons: What We Didn’t Like About the Flexispot EN1

We didn’t catch any deal-breakers on the tables, but these disadvantages are worth mentioning. Below are the cons of using the Flexispot EN1.

  • Assembly process: We knew everything we needed was inside each box, but it took two of our team members about forty-five minutes to build the first desk. The instructions weren’t foolproof. However, after the first successful attempt, our teammates completed the second and third tables at around 30 minutes for each.
  • Keypad: The keypad is next-level, and it almost made the pros list. It lets users program different preferred heights, from seated to middle to standing. It even allows employees to set alarms for when to stand. However, it needs to be more tactile instead of feeling like a single button.
  • Fingerprint magnet: The white/white table’s desktop area is prone to fingerprint marks. Again, this problem might not be as noticeable with other color options. We had to get extended mouse pads for the three tables to protect them from other blemishes. However, like the other disadvantages on our list, it doesn’t change our opinion that the Flexispot EN1 is worth its price.

Flexispot Review - Design and Layout

The frames come in three colors: black, gray, and white. Also, there are four tabletop color options available: black, mahogany, maple, and white. Lastly, each desk has a default desktop size with an option to increase it as needed.

We went for the white/white combination to match our office’s aesthetics and passed on the additional desktop space. After one month of use, all of our Flexispot EN1 desks still look brand new, except for maybe one or two pen marks. In hindsight, going black/black might have been a better choice for design longevity.

Who Is the Flexispot EN1 For?

The Flexispot EN1 is ideal for any employee or entrepreneur who spends a considerable amount of their day hunched over their desks.

Medical researchers have linked sitting for long hours to various health concerns, including obesity, high blood pressure, and unusual cholesterol levels. Having the option to switch between sitting and standing is a viable health and wellness solution for people who typically work long hours.

How Much Does the Flexispot EN1 Cost?

Our three tables were on sale from $359.99 to $279.99 each. Part of why we bought them so quickly was the limited-time promo. We spoke with a representative via phone, and as she was super helpful, we completed our transaction in no time.

All things considered, we’re happy we bought three Flexispot EN1s for our office. We got them for $279.99 each instead of $359.99. Even at SRP, we would have still been happy with the investment.
