An In-depth Overview Flexispot En 1
The FlexiSpot E7 Pro Plus is priced at $579.99. However, prices can vary depending on the material. The chipboard desktop is usually an ideal budget-friendly choice, but if you want to invest in a higher-quality material, then better save up. A bamboo structure will cost you $70 while a fiberboard desk will run you $80. Solid wood and solid-wood-textured materials are both $100. There are many colors available, including the classic black and white, as well as the more sophisticated cherry wood and mahogany.
The frame of the E7 is constructed out of a highly durable carbon steel material. The E7’s legs are thicker and can support objects up to 335 lbs. A metal cable cover is attached across the crowbar where the desk sits for storage purposes – customers had complained before about the lack of cable management in the previous model. The frame is adjustable by height, and it’s perfect for whenever you want to either stand up or stay seated while at work. You can adjust the width of the frame to fit your desk, no matter how small or large.
The E7 Pro Plus desk can be purchased in the UK and other European countries. It was only recently made available in the USA, Canada, and selected Asian countries like Korea and Japan.
Assembly and Operation
The assembly of the FlexiSpot E7 Pro Plus can be done in a matter of minutes. It takes less than an hour to put it all together. If we’re being specific, the duration falls between 30 to 40 minutes. The E7’s materials are quite heavy and can be difficult to transport, especially if they are heavier than the desk material. It is better to have someone else help you with this task. The complete set of E7 Pro Plus includes an instruction manual, bolt-and-screw packaging and letters to be used in specific locations. It’s simple and organized!
The frame comes partially assembled. You will need to adjust the width and attach the feet and legs, then plug in the wires. The pack includes a keypad for the desk, which can be purchased in Advanced or Premium. Both types have up-and-down buttons for height adjustment, as well as a height memory button. The Advanced pad has 3 programmable presets, while Premium has 4. These presets can adjust the height of the desk automatically, so you don’t have to adjust manually.
The E7 Pro Plus has motors each built within two of its legs, integrated with the keypad to provide a convenient user experience. While most of the instructions are understandable, there are a few that could be clearer, particularly with the part where the desk is attached, but that part of the experience can vary from person to person.

Performance and Use
Performance-wise, the FlexiSpot E7 is solid enough for many different uses. It can let you do minimal things such as school work and arts-and-crafts as well as heavy-duty stuff like furniture and machine repairs. The dramatic height increase is a game changer, as it gives you more freedom for your legs. Not only that, but it also gives you more options to work however you want. You can be sure that height-adjustable desks such as the E7 Pro Plus will make a big difference in your work life.
The E7 Pro Plus is easy to use thanks to its anti-collision feature. This detects objects that could block the desk’s operation and allows it to move smoothly. To give you enough space, the E7 Pro Plus will move an inch away from an office chair that bumps into it. If the cables start to pull away while the desk raises, it will take note right away and lower slightly to prevent such a thing. It’s so quiet that you won’t even notice the E7. This is especially useful for when you need to take a quick power nap in your office or bedroom.
The E7 Pro Plus Premium keypad features a USB port that allows you to charge your phone or other devices quickly and without the need for separate power plugs. FlexiSpot’s E7 is a great choice for anyone looking to add convenience to their work lives. Some users may have issues with the fact that the desk doesn’t come with a drawer to store extra space. It can however be purchased separately from FlexiSpot’s site.
Alternatives to Consider
If you’re not fully sold with the E7 Pro Plus, you might want to check out the alternatives for your consideration. FlexiSpot also offers other height-adjustable standing tables, many of which meet or exceed the brand’s high standards. There are the E5, E8, E1 and E5 desks as well as the more affordable Kana series, Comhar and Esben desks that have extra drawer space.
Ikea, the world-famous furniture brand, offers minimalistic standing desks, some of which are Bluetooth-friendly, while others are manually operated without the need to plug in. However, it’s important to note that the former can be more expensive to afford, while the latter’s price is among the lowest.
The Autonomous Standing Desk, Cemtrex SmartDesk and Vari Electric Standing Desk are all worthy alternatives to E7. While they may all work in the same way, they have different designs and features.
The Final Verdict
The FlexiSpot E7 Pro Plus Standing Desk has tons of useful features perfect for not just work, but other purposes as well. For a reasonable price of under $600, it’s perfect for what it has: from the quality of the materials to the operation to the durability, it’s an essential fixture worth investing in. While there may be a few things that have to be sacrificed, there are still plenty of desk size options to choose from, plus enough allowance to customize your workspace. Overall, the E7 Pro Plus has earned the right to be one of, if not the best height-adjustable standing desk yet!
FAQs Flexispot En 1
What is the appropriate height for a standing desk?
Your height will play a role in this decision. However, a good rule to follow when determining your ideal height is to place it at 90 degrees while you type or write. If the desk is too tall or too low, you can adjust it by a few inches.

Within the US, FlexiSpot products like the E7 usually ship within 3 days to a full week. The same applies to other countries with FlexiSpot shops. There are a few territories that ship its products within 24 hours, such as the UK.
