Flexispot must have the widest range of height-adjustable desks from any brand on the market. They seem to release a new table every few months.
The Flexispot E7 Pro is the latest model, which Flexispot claims to be a next-generation height-adjustable desk that is towards the top end of their product range. It is £100 less than the superb 8-in-1 Q8 standing desk, which has an integrated draw, QI charging and multiple USB ports.
This adopts a more typical format for standing desks, consisting of a frame and allowing you to use any desktop you want. The main selling point for me is that you can get a much larger desktop. Flexispot sells options up to 180cm wide and 80cm deep. You also have more colour options, and I was sent the Mahogany.
Flexispot also sent along an under-desk draw, which is an optional accessory that costs £65.
Including other brands I have reviewed previously:
- FlexiSpot Q8 Standing Desk
- Flexispot Comhar EG8 Standing Desk
- Flexispot Electric E5 Standing Desk
- Maidesite S2B Pro Bamboo Top Electric Standing Desk

As usual for Flexispot and similar products, when you unpack everything, it looks a bit intimidating to set up.
The assembly of this was more involved than the Q8 and Comhar EG8 that I have received in the past year, as they both had fixed-sized desktops, which had a lot of the parts pre-assembled.
Regardless, this was still quite easy to assemble, but the instructions could be a bit more clear.
With the chipboard and MDF desktops, you get some useful guide holes for your screws, and due to the nature of these materials, it is reasonably easy to screw things into them using the included tools.
If you opt for a solid desktop, you will likely need a drill to help you.
While it appears there are a lot of assembly steps, it is quite easy, and I was able to do it myself (and I am useless at DIY).
- You need to fit the horizontal crossbar to the desktop and extend it to its full length so the holes align with the pre-drilled holes.
- Fit the legs to the crossbar using the eight hex bolts and the included key.
- Fit the feet to the legs and the feet adjustments.
- Fit the computer for height adjustment and USB. With my desktop, there were holes on the left and right, giving you the choice of placement.
- Connect your cables up (they are all lettered and numbered, as is the control box, so you can’t go wrong).
- Fit the cable tray. There were no pre-drilled holes for this or any indication of exactly where it should go. I probably haven’t placed it centrally. With a proper screwdriver, I was able to screw through the laminate manually without needing any electric tools.
- Fit the magnetic cable tidy cover over the cross beam.
- I also had the draw accessory. Again this doesn’t have pre-drilled holes for it, but you attach it with four screws. With this, I used a tape measure to try and make sure it was central.
Some parts of the instructions were not overly clear, such as fitting the cable tray. However, it was good that all the screws were separated into lettered compartments, and it was clear which one you needed to use for each section. The included tools are OK, but I found when that the Philips head screwdriver wasn’t the best, which made screwing in the cable tray a bit difficult. Using a proper screwdriver alleviated this issue.
It is worth noting that with the table fully assembled, it is very heavy, and you may need someone to help you flip it over and position it into place.
With this being a heavy desk, it feels incredibly sturdy, and there is no wobbling or rattling while you use it.
The height adjustment range is extensive and surely must go beyond anyone’s requirements. At the lowest level, it is too small to use a chair with and at its highest, I’d find it uncomfortable to do anything on it standing up, and I am 6’1. So, I am confident you will be able to find an appropriate height for your needs regardless of how tall you are.
The table uses motors in both legs, and this allows the height adjustment to be smooth and quick. With a glass of water on the table, I was able to increase the height with no risk of spillage. The motors are also nice and quiet, not that I have ever had an issue with the motor noise of any other height-adjustable table.
This has a huge load capacity of 160kg, that’s twice my weight, and 60kg more capacity than the Q8 and 110kg more than the EG8. I assume this doesn’t factor in the weight of the desktop, but I doubt you’ll ever have an issue with it. It really is a very sturdy table.
Unlike my recent Flexispot reviews, there is no metal frame running around the table’s edges, so this should make fitting a monitor arm quite easy. I use three monitors for my main work PC, one 49-inch super ultrawide monitor and two additional 4K monitors. I haven’t had the confidence to switch this desk to my main PC yet, as I am not sure the chipboard desktop would handle all that weight on a monitor arm. If I did fit my monitors, I would likely place something like a metal plate in-between where the arm attaches under the table to help spread the load.
It is worth noting that Flexispot sells its own monitor arms, and the D7L is designed for screens up to 34″ and a load capacity of up to 33 lbs/15kg. My 49″ Samsung weighs 11.6 kg without its stand, so it would probably be OK.
The included USB-A port is handy, but the Q8 and EG8 had a far superior port selection, including USB-C, and the Q8 had wireless charging.
While the draw accessory is handy, I am not overly fond of it. It is quite small, and the mechanism is not particularly smooth. With it being held in place with four screws, I feel like this could get accidentally ripped out. That might just be a me thing, though, as I am both clumsy and heavy-handed.
Price and Alternative Options
The Flexispot E7 Pro Plus has an RRP of £500 for the frame only.
Desktop choices are extensive. The cheapest is the 120x60cm maple/mahogany/black/grey for £80, which jumps up to £190 for the largest 180x80cm size (limited to some colours).
They then have some curved desktop shapes, or if you want a premium-looking table, they have a 140x80cm pure oak desktop for £600.
They also have a bunch of handy accessories to help jack up the final price. This includes:
- Additional cable ducts: £30
- Cable Spine: £30
- Clamp Power Strip: £60 (which clamps to the back of the desk, giving you easy access to plug sockets, which looks very useful)
- Keyboard Tray: £60
- Under Desk Draw: £65
- CPU Holder (as in your desktop PC): £40
- Plus many more
The older E7 has an RRP of £420 or the more affordable E5 is £360
This is another excellent electric adjustable standing desk by Flexispot. It lacks some of the additional features of the Q8 and EG8, such as superior USB ports, wireless charging and an integrated drawer.
However, you have the flexibility to choose different-sized desktops, which is probably more important to me than any fancy additional feature. I need a very large desk, so the 140x70xm and 120x60cm options wouldn’t be ideal for my main office desk.
This also has a massive load capacity of 160kg, 60kg more than the Q8 and the highest load capacity apart from the most expensive E7Q model they have, which can handle 200kg. I think this capacity is proof of what you are paying for, the ultra-sturdy frame and powerful motors can handle much more weight than competing models.
Overall, it is certainly not a cheap desk, but considering many people spend several hundred on premium office chairs, or several thousand on a gaming PC (and monitors), it is an investment that is well worth considering.
