Using the FlexiSpot Pro Series
With this being my first adjustable desk, of course the first thing I did was mess with, I mean test, the height controls. The buttons on the front of the control panel are easy to press, and have a nice white LED illumination behind them which turns off after use. Adjusting the height to an ideal sitting and standing height was as easy as using the up and down buttons to get just the right height, and then pressing the “M” button and then one of the three position numbers to save the height to that button. With a range of 27.2″ to 46.5″, there is quite a bit of range available to fit the needs of most people, and the three memory settings were plenty for me. There is also an “A” button that can be used to set a timer to remind you to stand up, or sit down, after a certain time between 1 and 99 minutes.
Once I had my height setting in place, it was time to setup my workspace. Since this desk has been functioning as my remote workspace, I was much more conscious of keeping things neat and tidy, especially since it was a smaller work surface to begin with. Being only 24″ in depth, the lack of any cable management holes was actually a plus in my opinion, as the cutouts would actually take away a significant portion of the usable desk depth. That being said, one could always add their own cutouts with a hole saw if they were so inclined.
As this is my first adjustable desk, I don’t have any noise comparisons outside of other desks I have utilized in my office job, but the FlexiSpot Pro Series is very quiet and at no point was I ever bothered by the slight noise it made when changing heights. Speaking of changing heights, the dual motors found on the Pro 2-stage frame are able to lift the desktop at a rate of 1.26″ per second, which is just fast enough to not feel sluggish, but at the same time not so fast that you overshoot your height goal. And when moving between saved heights or when reaching the ends of the adjustment range, the desktop will slow down slightly to arrive at the desired height, with no sudden stopping or starting. Not that I have a real need for it with my use case, but the Pro 2-stage frame can support up to 220lbs, which should be more than enough for even the beefiest custom PCs and largest monitors.
