Pro Standing Desk E5

Pro Standing Desk E5 – Bestseller

Pros

Easy to set up,
Convenient to use,
Quiet motor operations, and
High-quality construct.

Cons

The keypad design isn’t favorable.

Ergonomics

The ergonomic standing desk FlexiSpot E5 Standing Desk makes a great choice as it features an easy transition from sitting to standing and vice versa. The standing desk offers three programmable height settings, including leaning, sitting, and standing. You can program the three settings conveniently.

Another great ergonomic feature of this standing desk is the "long-time sitting reminder," which is a timer that you can sit to remind yourself to change your position so you can work comfortably. Again, this is convenient to use the feature, and all you have to do is to press the up and down arrows to increase or decrease the number of minutes until you hear the alarm sound.

Design

The FlexiSpot Pro Standing Desk has a simple and straightforward design. The standing desk features a sturdy desktop and a high-quality lifting mechanism and a convenient design to its users.

Operation and Stability

The other aspect of the Pro Standing Desk E5 that we should appreciate is the operation and stability. The desk features an adjustment speed of about 1.38 inches per second. Moreover, the motor operation is quiet and only generates a sound output of 50 decibels as you adjust the height of the desk. However, you may notice that the sound is slightly higher pitch when lowering compared to when raising the height of the desk.

The desk can handle a weight up to 220 lbs.

The Pro Standing Desk E5 features exceptional stability when without any crossbar or a wedge for additional support.

Features and Options

If you take a closer look at the FlexiSpot E5 Standing Desk features, it offers height adjustable from 24.4 inches to 49.2 inches. Moreover, the desktop comes in three different colors, including Maple, Mahogany, and Black. Furthermore, it is available in three different size options, including 48, 55, and 60 inches.

The frame is available in white, black, and grey colors.

Assembly

When it comes to assembling the Pro Standing Desk E5, it is quite simple and easy. Assembling the standing desk takes around 15 to 30 minutes. However, it is not a one-person show, so there is a need for two people to work together when assembling this desk.

Delivery & Warranty

The standing desk is delivered by FlexiSpot, which ships to 48 states in the country for free. Once you order the desk, the shipping process takes between two and four days.

Customer satisfaction is critical for FlexiSpot, so they offer a limited warranty on the product covering material defects. The Pro Standing Desk E5 comes with a 5-year warranty for the frame and a 3-year warranty for the motor, switch, controller, electronics, and other mechanisms.

Overall

The best seller Pro Standing Desk E5 is a great desk. It is easy to assemble and use and features a solid construction and multiple color choices. However, the only not-so-great feature of the Pro Standing Desk E5 is the keypad design which can be further improved. Regardless of this exception, the Pro Standing Desk E5 is a solid choice that you will thoroughly enjoy.

Pro Plus Standing Desk E7

Pro Plus Standing Desk E7 – Top Choice

Pros

Solid construct,

Quiet, efficient operations,

Supports 355 lbs weight,

Cons

The desk is heavy,

The assembly requires some work.

Ergonomics

The ergonomic standing desk Pro Plus E7 makes another great choice as it features a super convenient transition from sitting to standing and vice versa. The standing desk also offers three programmable height settings to customize your position with ease and convenience.

The other great ergonomic feature of this standing desk is a sit-stand reminder that helps you change your position in a timely manner so you can stay healthy. Moreover, a charging port at the side of the desk allows you to charge all your devices conveniently.

Design

The FlexiSpot Pro Standing Desk has a simple and straightforward design which gives it a sleek appearance despite its heavyweight. The standing desk features a hole-less leg design that provides an aesthetically pleasing experience regardless of where you place your standing desk.

Moreover, it features a sturdy desktop and a frame that can fit in desktops of varying lengths and widths.

However, one of the things that you should be aware of is that the worktop is not attached to the frame. Rather, it simply sits on top of the frame, which adds convenience when assembling the desk.

Operation and Stability

One of the critical aspects that differentiate the Pro Plus Standing Desk E7 from the Pro Standing Desk E5 is the operation and stability. The desk features an adjustment speed of about 1.5 inches per second. However, the high speed doesn't compromise on the stability. The desk is super stable and sturdy at every angle, including the highest level.

Moreover, the motor operation is quiet and only generates a sound output of 50 decibels as you adjust the height of the desk.

The desk is heavy. However, it can handle a weight up to 375 lbs.

Features and Options

If you take a closer look at the features of the Pro Plus Standing Desk E7, it offers height adjustable from 22.8 inches to 48.4 inches. Moreover, the available desktop ranges between a width of 47.2-80" and a depth of 24"-30".

The frame is available in grey, white and black colors.

Assembly

The Pro Plus Standing Desk E7 comes in two separate boxes that require assembly. It is important for you to know that the boxes are heavy, and if you intend to take the standing desk on the first floor of your home, you cannot do it alone.

Moreover, assembling the standing desk is also not a one-person show. Since the standing desk is heavy, it requires lifting support from more than one person for ease and convenience. Moreover, as mentioned earlier, the desktop is not attached to the frame. Instead, it is placed on top of the frame, and it is one of the assembling features that adds to convenience while assembling the standing desk.

Delivery & Warranty

The standing desk is delivered by FlexiSpot and ships to 48 states in the country for free. Once you order the desk, the shipping process takes between two and four days.

At Flexispot, we believe that customer is the king, which is why we offer a warranty on our products and the Pro Plus Standing Desk E7 is not an exception. The product comes with a 15-year warranty for the frame, motor, and other mechanisms.

Overall

Pro Plus Standing Desk E7 is one of the best standing desks offered by Flexispot. The height adjustment function operates seamlessly, making switching between standing and sitting easier. The desk is robust and sturdy, featuring a convenient design and stable, low-noise operations. However, assembling it alone may not be possible since it is a heavier desk.

 Pro Plus Standing Desk E7
