What I Like
I like a lot about FlexiSpot's Studio standing Desk, but what I like most is that this studio desk is an all-in-one desk. The design of the desk is both functional and sustainable. I do not need to purchase an additional desk to hold my equipment. It comfortably holds all my equipment from a monitor to keyboard, microphone, mixers, and even speakers. It makes music production easier and more seamless.
I like another feature of this desk is the easy sit/stand transition. I like the fact that I can produce music standing. I noticed that standing gets me to respond to beats faster, which helps me simulate how the music would impact listeners on the dance floor. It enables me to test the flow of my sounds easily and make adjustments on the go.
What I Don’t Like
Studio standing desk ESD101 is a very functional and practical desk, and it was hard to find something I did not like about it. I observed, however, that this desk has a maximum loading capacity of 110bs, which is rather small compared to that of most standing desks.
While the desk would hold your monitor, keyboard, mouse, monitor speakers, and other lightweight equipment, it is not advisable to load heavier equipment on the desk. Nonetheless, the desk transitions smoothly and does not wobble even at the highest adjustable height. And it has served me excellently so far.
