Flexispot EN1 electric white standing desk review


When built, the Flexispot EN1 feels sturdy, doesn’t make creaking noises when you’re typing on top of it, and looks well made. We got the mahogany color desktop with the black frame and it looks ok – not the most luxury, nor the cheapest we’ve seen. It isn’t beautifully designed, but is very practical and functional. The adjustable feet on the bottom of the frame are a nice touch for levelling out on an uneven surface.


For starters, the look of the desk is very nice. As I came from a very large desk that measured 65″ x 30″, I went with the largest option I could and got the 55″ x 28″ in mahogany with grey legs.

This desk has an electric motor capable of lifting up to 154 pounds to move the workspace, including equipment up and down, you’ll want the controls in a comfortable location for smooth transitions.

Height adjustment

There is a good range of adjustments that can be made by the simple press of a button. It can be set as low as 27.9″ up to 47.6″ with small adjustments of .1″ per button press. To make it even easier to go from sitting to standing, there are three programmable presets for a quick change-up.

A little whine comes out when you press the up or down arrow on the controls to change heights at up to 1″ per second. 


The desk arrived in two separate boxes a couple of days apart. The EN1 frame, including the legs, feet, and controller, was in one box and the desktop was contained in another box. The EN1 frame box was quite heavy as the legs and motor are pretty dense, helping to make the desk quite stable at the full height.

The legs and top were well protected in the boxes and were in perfect condition. The box with the legs includes the directions, bolts, screws, allen wrenches needed to install the bolts, measuring tape, and a basic wrench to tighten the drive shaft. You will need a Phillips screwdriver or even better, an electric drill to drive in the wood screws to secure the frame to the bottom of the desk.

The directions were easy to follow and assemble.

After connecting everything together, plug in the desk to activate it. There are three programmable memory settings, up/down arrows with a LED display showing the current height in green, a memory save button, and a reminder settings button. 

How to use FlexiSpot EN1 electric white standing desk?

Programming buttons are simple. All that’s needed is to use the up or down arrow to get your preferred desktop-level within a tenth of an inch, then press the memory button — M.

The other button on the control pad with an A on it is for setting a reminder to sit or stand. Pressing that button lets you set a time from 99 seconds down to 1 minute. The LED display will then start counting down the time, and once it runs out, you’ll hear a beeping sound coming from the control pad so you can push your programmed sit or stand button to change positions. This has helped make me remember that oh yeah, I do have the option to sit or stand to work.

Vari Electric Standing Desk


Type: MotorizedHeight range: 25-inches – 50.5-inchesDesktop size: 48-72-inches x 30-inches


+Intuitive assembly process+Multiple finishes and sizes available+Excellent cable management features+Supports up to 200lb (90.7 kg)


-Cable Management Tray costs extra

Vari’s Electric Standing Desk is available in three different widths (48in, 60in and 72in)  to suit the needs of your home office and can be set up in minutes using the two included Allen wrenches. The desk features two t-style legs that each contain a motor that allow it to be raised to a maximum height of 50.5in (128cm) or lowered to 25in (63.5cm).

However, what impressed us most was how much thought Vari put into the assembly process of its desk. The desk’s frame comes pre-attached and customers only need to assemble the legs. A control panel resides in the middle of the frame and the cords for both motors as well as the keypad at the front of the desk plug into it.

In addition to being able to choose from three widths, Vari’s Electric Standing Desk is also available in five different finishes (black, white, dark wood, butcher block and reclaimed wood). The desk is able to support up to 200lb (90.7kg) which makes it an ideal choice for power users with multiple monitors and heavier workstation PCs.

Vari also sells an optional Cable Management Tray that easily attaches to the back of the desk and has more than enough room to hold a power strip and even a large power adapter for a business monitor.

The keypad allows you easily and quickly adjust the height of the desk and there are four memory presets for storing your preferred sitting and standing heights. The desk is rather quiet when moving between heights and we were even able to lower and raise the desk without spilling a full cup of coffee. Vari also offers free shipping in the contiguous US as well as 30-day risk free returns.
