Electric Standing Desk Review — Flexispot Height Adjustable Sit Stand Desk


– So standing desks are
one of the best ways to increase energy,
productivity, and overall health, and in this video, we’re
gonna be doing a quick review of a FlexiSpot Sit and Stand Desk, plus give you a little
tour behind the scenes here at the Think Media studios. Coming up. (upbeat music) Hey, what’s up, Sean
here with Think Media. Bringing you the best tips and tools for building your influence
with online video, and on this channel, we do a
lot of tip and strategy videos, as well as tech gear and
even office gear reviews just like this one. So if you’re new here
consider subscribing. But hey I’m standing in the
office that I’ve been doing most of my work out of lately. I actually don’t have a
standing desk and that’s kind of been a big deal because
sitting all day can actually have negative impacts on your health. And we’ve actually been
expanding as a team so over here is actually our loft area. So we do a lot of shooting over here. We actually have another
standing desk ’cause everything that we upgrade as far as the
team goes for Think Media, we actually wanna do standing
desks now because they’re healthier, they increase
productivity, but actually let’s check out the new office. So when we come down this way we actually are transforming this other bedroom into another home
office for Kyle, Omar, Heather to work on as well
as we’re also going to be turning this into kind of like
a podcasting video studio. So let’s go check it out. All right so this is still
definitely a work in progress. W’re just kind of getting started. And it’s really cool
because Flexi-Desk wanted to help us with this project
so they sent out this standing desk for us to
check out, to review, and actually Kyle’s already
clocked a ton of time using it. So let’s talk about all the
features and do a review. All right so this specific
model number of this FlexiSpot desk is the EB4, that’s the frame and then the top is the B2 top. And those things can be sold separately. And as usual we’ll put links
to the desk and the accessories in the description below if you wanna check them out specifically. Now it actually was shipped
out in two large boxes and we got the legs, the
top came a little bit later. And once we had everything
Kyle actually put it together. Now it took him about an hour
and a half to put it together and he was actually kind of
filming and sort of documenting the process a little bit. So it probably could
have been done faster. And one of the cool things
is if you actually order a desk like this on
Amazon, they have a service where they will put
assembly together for you. And that costs around $105. So again you could either
do it yourself or you could definitely hire somebody
which is kind of nice, it gets it out of the way
and once you start getting it built it definitely takes
like two people to move and so if you were gonna
put it together yourself you might want to think
about getting help. Although Kyle was able to pull it off completely by himself. Now as far as the price
goes at the time of shooting this video this desk
comes in at around $560. And of course check out prices
in the description below and that’s with the top. Now this is a black top,
there’s also mahogany available, maple available and
there’s two frame options. We have the gray frame,
there’s also a black frame. I think the black on
black looks pretty rad, it’s for the Amazon version. And then you an also get just the legs. So the legs come in at
$409 without the top. And here in the U.S.
and that fits top sizes between 47 and a quarter
inches and 70 inches with a width between 23.6
inches to 31.5 inches. And of course we’ll list
specs in the description. But the point is is that this
top is perfect for this desk but you could get any top. You could use reclaimed
wood, you could buy something from a thrift shop, you could
order your own custom top. And it would just have
to work with the legs ’cause the legs are expandable
and so if you just do it within those dimensions you
could do your own custom top and just buy the legs separately. And when it comes to the build
quality of the standing desk, it’s really built well. I mean the desk is super
sturdy, the legs are all steel. The top is this kind of
wood with laminate on it. The only plastic piece
is this remote control and still really good and is
on there nice and durable. And the weight limit for
the desk is 250 pounds which is a lot. So if you wanna stack up a
computer, a couple monitors, or whatever things you wanna put on there. Even if you wanna lift yourself,
I mean you could do that. I don’t know if you want
to but you could do that. Wow it’s pretty strong. And then as far as the actual
height goes to the standing desk it goes from 23.6 inches
at the lowest without a top all the way up to 48.4
inches at its highest setting which is super high. Now I’m six, one and so I
have when I’ve researched any desks, I’ve realized
some actually sometimes not tall enough or they’re not
sturdy enough when they’re tall. And so this is a little bit
higher than I even wanna use. You know you typical want that
ergonomic kind of a right L, maybe if its it’s
slightly lower than that. So it’s really good for versatile heights. The other thing is that we
do a lot of tech reviews, gear reviews here on Think
Media and so a standing desk is also nice to have for
a surface for shooting product reviews, product
shots, product photography and having different
heights is nice because then you can really control different
angles, not just raising and lowering your camera
but also raise or lowering the surface and creating different shots. Additionally you can tell
that everything in this is quality including the motor. Not only could it lift
me, but it also is fast. It raises at 1.3 inches a
second so again standing desks have different speeds. That’s pretty fast, you
can see how fast it goes up and down. Sometimes they’re kind
of like a snail pace, like it’s good but this is
not only strong as far as how much weight it can
lift but it’s also fast which is really cool. And the last thing that’s
really cool is the frame itself has a five year warranty and
the motor has a three year warranty and so that’s more
than offer so you definitely see them standing behind the
build quality of this thing with that warranty. Okay now as far as the control goes, you have seven buttons here. Number one you’ve got up and
down so you can just manually control that at any time. You’ve also got three
presets, one, two, and three. And the M speaks to setting that. So if you wanted your first
setting to be set to 48.4 inches you could just hit
the M, hit that number one, and now it’s programmed and whenever you hit that number one it
will go to that preset. So I just hit number two,
it’s going back to that formal setting whatever it was
and I’ll cancel that. I hit the one, it’ll bring
it up to that setting that we just programmed. So the controls work great
and the programs are nice. And in the final button is
the A which is an alarm. So again part of the point
of a standing desk is to impact your health. A sedentary lifestyle is
one of the biggest dangers they say to workers,
probably like us right. If you’re editing video,
working from a desk, working all day long
which is what we do here. And so the alarm, you could
set whatever time you want. You can turn it on or off,
and then you could set it to 30 minutes, 45 minutes, two
hours, or even 15 minutes. Like you set the time and
then once it goes off, it’s just that reminder to
stand up or change the desk height which is great. Maybe you wanna stand for
an hour, sit for an hour, stand for an hour, sit for an hour. And you’ve got your standing
desk programmed all right there so that is the controls. Additionally there’s a
couple cool accessories if you’re looking into standing desks that FlexiSpot also offers. One is these monitor arms,
if you wanna go duel monitors pretty cool supporting
10 to 27 inch monitors. Clamp that on the back and
than you can control those. Of course being the fact that
when you’re at a standing desk if your monitors are sitting
on the desk, it might have your neck cranked down
right which is a bummer so it’s nice to bring your monitors up. So monitor arms are a
good way to make sure your ergonomics are solid
throughout the whole place. And then FlexiSpot also has
mat which is kind of nice like a spongy mat to kind of
keep not just lower resistance but to kind of keep you
moving, keep that blood flow going in your legs. So if you wanna check those
out, we’ll link those up in the description as well. So that kind of covers everything. You know my final opinion, I
think the only cons to this desk, kind of some of the
downsides are I do know that some other standing desks
have like separate apps. That was kind of the only
con I could think of. And which is kind of cool
but I found that even I’ve used one that has an app. I don’t really use it, like
I just use the controls on the desk. I’m not trying to get my
phone app, like open the app and be like great I can control
this from a remote control. But it’s something to consider,
that is something that other standing desks have. And the other thing is
of course the price. There are certainly cheaper
standing desks on the market but you kind of get what you pay for. Isn’t that true? And so we’ve seen some
different budget options but I think what you’re
getting here is super solid build quality. It’s a huge desk, I mean
the dimensions are big to support like a big work
space, you know, duel monitors whatever you want to create. And so the investment I
think, I can definitely see pays off because you have a
desk that’ll last you for years, increase your productivity,
increase your health. And as far as the pros,
it’s kinda everything that we mentioned. I think good build
quality, great controls, everything works, pretty easy to assemble. It goes up pretty quick and
then you’re off to the races really changing the game by
using a sit and stand desk for your health. Question of the Day, where are
you currently working from? Do you just have a normal
desk, do you work from home, are you working from coffee
shops, what is your setup? Let me know in the

  7. This is awesome! I have been wondering about getting a standing desk for a while but wasn't sure where to start! Thank you for sharing this!

  11. Hi

    I love your reviews, lessons and I always keep watching your uploads.

    Unfortunately now I can't buy this table because they don't ship it to Dubai.

    It will be great if you always add 2 links for same item US link and internationally link same like unbox therapy page doing .

    Thanks

  12. got a basic standing at Ikea for 40$ and a standing drafting light table for free online 🙂 i do like have a tall stole for a few min break and a standing mat

  13. I have one at work and it’s amazing!! It’s been 3 years now. We also have one in our photo studio and it’s great to move large sets up and down for prepping. They hold a lot of weight too

  14. Have a similar desk at work. I resisted for a while but have actually become quite accustomed to it. I stand when I get in, and sit later… Up and down, up and down throughout the day.
    At home I have a low musicians desk that I would like to modify or raise to standing height and use with a stool height chair.
    I like that this one can be purchased without the top. Have a table I could consider mounting to it.

  15. I would love to slam my homework on that desk. It's not as satisfying as doing it sitting down😂😂

  16. This is such an eye opener! I'm a doll Customizer and I spend most of my day sitting down working on my desk. I end up all sore and with my neck and back hurting. I believe this desk would be perfect for me and my work. Thank you so much for doing this review and showing me this existed 😊

  17. I have the same desk! Flexispot sent me one a while back and I've been planning on making an update video on the desk. It works beautifully! I made my own top for it, too.
    PS – 100% Truth at 4:43. I'm 6'3 and it's more than tall enough.

  18. Hi there. Been watching all your videos for a while now. You are the best and thanks for all the great content you provide. Could you please help with a question I have. I would love to know how does this guy make videos like this https://youtu.be/Z_fNOPwGI7k

  19. How do you do cable management if you have a tower that sits on the floor?

    So that stuff doesn’t get yanked out when you raise it but doesn’t get in the way and caught/tangled when lowered.

  20. im half blind gamer lost my right eye 15 years old i just try to make english videos but english is not my 1st leg end im new to english youtube if u wont to help me check my chsnnel thx for yor time

  21. hey dude cool video
    But i want someone to see my channel and tell me MISTAKES I AM MAKING WHILE MAKING THE VIDEOS OR ANYTHING ELSE you find in it tell me. The main reason i am not able to make videos on song cause of copyright right strike.
    But other music channel is able to do that what do they didnt get copyright strike on their videos Cause THEY ARE THE BIG CHANNEL

    LIKE THINK MEDIA IS
    Help me
    cheers mine
    explore my channel.

  22. I so want one ☝️. I can use it so my 2 year old twins don’t touch my computer and I can keep a better eye on them and react faster then I could from a seated position while editing.

  23. I can't sit still very long anyways. I won't need this desk, but thanks for sharing. I'll inform others. As usual awesome video!

  24. Awesome Stuff Mr. Think. I am Strength Coach/Diet Consultant, and part of what I do is quantify calories burned for NEAT (non-exercise activity thermogenesis). Standing desks are great for the reasons you have stated, but they won't contribute much to increased daily energy expenditure, as sitting isn't the issue but non-movement is the issue. A Treadmill Desk or Bike Desk (your other video) can make a big difference for those interested. Here is some helpful data for people to compare:

    •Sitting Still: 80kcals/hr
    •Standing Still: 88kcals/hr
    •Sitting while fidgeting: 120kcals/hr
    •Standing while fidgeting: 150kcals/hr
    •Walking at 1mph: 200kcals/hr
    •Walking at 2mph: 235kcals/hr
    •Walking at 3mph: 304kcals/hr
    •Formal Workout: 350-450kcals/hr
    >>> Numbers are rounded and will change based on body weight of the individual.
    ***This data is based on the research of JA Levine et al.

  25. As someone living with type 1 Diabetes I really want one of these. The ADA currently recommends getting up and moving every half hour. Something like this could literally help extend my life.

  26. Hey I just started my new YouTube channel and I just upload my first video go support me on this new path I’m taking 🙏🏽😌💎

    https://youtu.be/GeLh7FyFv6o

  27. I actually have a regular style flexispot that just sits on my regular desk and you raise and lower manually at my work and I LOVE it! I'm an accountant and it's great to use while doing paperwork =)

  28. Sorry to bother you but I am actually looking around to find a video camcorder that can fit an external wireless microphone to film pranks with. Or if you have something better in mind then please dont hesitate to let me know. I would really appreciate the help.
    Thanks again

  29. Nice video my man! Your channel helped me to pick out a camera to help my channel today! It wasn't a canon, but I knew enough of the right words to figure out stuff with the sales rep lol, subbed!

  30. In my business we got 10 standing desks and employees love them, many standing 2 to 4 hours a day, much more use than I expected.

  31. Question please, I'm about to start a You Tube channel but I have two very different interests, one is a fun comedy character, the other is real advice for entrepreneurs. Should I have two different channels or just one with different playlists?

  32. Hey, Sean. Excellent video. Your advice about more efficient productivity actually works! Thanks so much.

  33. Think media, can I get a quick response on Facebook before I sign up for one of your courses. Don’t want to spend $$$ before confirming some info! Thanks!

  34. LOLOLOL! "And the legs come in at [an egregiously insane] $409 dollars, without the [laminated particle board] top"? What foolish investment — for a sit and stand desk! And good thing the alarm in my cell phone still works. Demo some well built, value packed, practical alternatives, will you please? -PeterB

  35. Thanks for the video, that's a pretty cool desk a little pricey but its great quality as you said. Wow you are growing at an exponential rate, you'll have a million subs in no time, that's awesome congrats!!! Thanks for the video, always a pleasure to watch.

  36. I like to sit on the floor but can't find proper desk for floor… Sitting on the floor has benefits too

  37. My set up is in my art/photo studio/and woodworking room at a warehouse in LIC Queens,which is a long space, and I have my editing in one side, at the far other side woodworking and another mac station

  38. I really want to love this desk BUT, it's a bummer that they don't offer a big desk top, and annoyingly I can't find any IKEA or whatever top which is 200cm x 80cm (or even 70-75cm!)

    I'd love to give my money to this company…
