Flexispot E7 Standing Desk Review

The Flexispot E7 standing desk will change your relationship with your working and gaming setup.

Many gamers give a lot of consideration to their gaming PCs, consoles, monitors and chairs, but not everyone gives serious consideration to their desk.  After all, a desk is a desk, right?

Well, yes and no.  A great gaming desk can not only add to the aesthetic of your gaming setup, but the right desk could have important ergonomic benefits, too.  Particularly if it is a standing desk.

Enter the Flexispot E7 standing desk.

I won’t lie, when Flexispot contacted me about reviewing this desk, I was curious but had doubts about it.  I’d heard about the health benefits of standing desks, but c’mon, standing is hard.  I didn’t think that I’d make much use of the option to stand when working from home, and definitely didn’t think I’d be making any use of it when gaming.

I was wrong.

If you’re reading this review, you may be curious about standing desks but have doubts too, or you may already be sold on the benefits of standing desks and purely want to know whether the Flexispot E7 standing desk is worth your money.

If you’re looking for a TL;DR, this is it: a standing desk will change your relationship with your working and gaming setup, and the Flexispot E7 standing desk is excellent.  I cannot recommend it enough.

Let’s get into it in more detail, shall we?

The Flexispot E7 Standing Desk At A Glance

The Flexispot E7 standing desk is a stylish, premium standing desk packed with a host of impressive features. It comes with dual motors, a user-friendly keypad with USB charging, and a metal tray for efficient cable management. The desk offers a wide range of customization options, and despite its high-end features, it comes in at a relatively affordable price point considering the quality, particularly when comparing it to some of its competitors.

But, how does it fare in reality?

Unboxing and Assembly

The Flexispot E7 standing desk came packed in two boxes.  The first box has the desktop, which is available in several variants – I have the black matte finish version.  The second box contains the sturdy legs, casters, wiring and the cable management solution.

Everything is very well packaged.

Flexispot also throw in an awesome multitool to use to put everything together, which is a nice touch.  It may sound like a small thing, but it is very well made and saved me digging through my toolbox to get the various screwdrivers together and I’ve added it to my tools for future use.

Everything is easy to unpack and despite the standing desk performing more functions than a standard desk, it doesn’t have too many pieces to assemble.  However, it should be noted that the legs are HEAVY

The assembly process was quite simple and straight forward, thanks to the clear instructions and pre-drilled holes making alignment and screwing in a breeze.

You’ll note two things from the above picture: the desktop is a fingerprint magnet (we’ll come to that again later), and my socks are awesome (thanks for noticing).

I am far from a DIY expert, but putting the desk together took me about an hour despite doing it solo, which includes time messing around taking pictures.

All in all, the build was painless.  People with mobility issues may struggle, particularly due to the number of screws to secure everything and also the weight of the legs, but it is straightforward enough to assemble alone if you’re physically able to do so.

Features and Build Quality

The Flexispot E7 standing desk impresses with its sturdy build quality and thoughtful design.  The robust electronic legs and built-in wireless charger, speaks volumes about Flexispot’s attention to detail. The desk can comfortably lift up to 125kg, so lifting your dual monitor setup and gaming PC will be a doddle.

One of the standout features of the Flexispot E7 standing desk is the keypad. With four programmable heights, a built-in USB-A port, and a screen to display the height, the keypad exudes quality while ensuring smooth operation.

I have set the keypad to remember 4 heights; the lowest height possible (to lowest my monitor right down for console gaming, as though it is on a TV stand), the perfect height for sitting and typing (for writing words like the ones you are reading right now), the perfect height for standing and typing (again, for words), and finally, my end of day mode, which is slightly higher than my sitting height, but high enough that I can push my chair and its arms under the desk.  It truly fits every phase of my working and gaming day.

The desk also boasts an anti-collision system as a feature of the motorized legs. In essence, this system adds a layer of safety when the desk is in motion (raising or lowering). If the desk senses any resistance, it will stop moving completely, preventing any potential accidents or damage.

Literally the only negative point I can put against the Flexispot E7 standing desk is the matte black desktop shows fingerprints and dust very easily.  I find myself having the dust and wipe my desk every day, which is great from a hygiene perspective, but something that I didn’t have to do with my old wood effect desk.  Personally, I’d probably go for a desktop that hides the smudges if I were picking this up for myself.

With that being said, the desktop is sturdy and well made, so if black if the colour you want, it is still easy to recommend.  The desktop, along with the rest of the desk’s construction, feels like it can easily stand up to the rigours of a busy WFH/gaming setup.


I cannot stress enough how much the Flexispot E7 standing desk has changed my life, professionally and personally.

It has been a joy to push a button and go from sitting to standing mid-meeting during a busy day at work.  It has also been great to stand while playing Valheim with my friends in the evening.  I have felt a noticable improvement in my back and neck pain, thanks to the desk being at the perfect height when I’m sitting (most desks are an inch or so too high for my feet to touch the floor on my chair) and also due to being able to stand while still being productive or gaming.

I genuinely cannot recommend the Flexispot E7 standing desk enough.  It is a premium, sturdy and easy-to-use standing desk that won’t break the bank, that has significantly improved my relationship with my working and gaming setup.
