Here is our review of the Flexispot Standing Desk E8.

Streamline Design

The uniquely designed streamline of the legs bring an extra aesthetic appeal to your working space.

Loading Capacity

The dual-motor lifting system enables a higher weight capacity of 125KG for all your desktop needs.


The enhanced structure ensures stability even when at maximum capacity and at the highest setting.


The 3-stage frame design gives extra flexibility of your desired height adjustment (60 – 125cm).

Child Lock

Lock the height position until you have deactivated it.


Detects and prevents collisions before they happen.

Soft Edges

Prevent potential injuries. Create a safer playground for your children and pets.

Smart Control Panel

The premium keypad has LED display and 4 memory presets.

Cable Management

The groove hides the cables below the desk to keep the workstation organised and safe.

What’s in the boxes?

The desk frame comes in two boxes and the desk top comes in a separate box.

The frame boxes contain:

  • 1 x handset
  • 1 x control box
  • 1 x supporting beam
  • 1 x connecting cable
  • 1 x cable management plate
  • 2 x legs
  • 2 x feet
  • 2 x supporting plates

The desk top box contains the desk top.

Building the Desk

Final Thoughts

The desk frame comes in two large boxes – and they are heavy! Everything you need to build the desk frame is in those boxes, including the lifting mechanism. What would have been easier for the delivery guys would have been if those two boxes had their contents evenly split, but instead you get one larger and significantly heavier box and one smaller lighter box. The desk top comes as a seperate box too, so to make the complete desk you need all three boxes.

Once you have get everything out of the boxes its just a case of following the instructions to build it all. It took us less than an hour to build it all.

With the building out of the way, the next part was deciding where to put the desk and setting up the height. It’s very easy to move the height up and down and set a memory all with a simple push of a button. There is even a child lock button if you don’t want it moved accidentally.

Talking of accidentally, if the desk lowers onto something it will stop and raise itself back up – very useful so that something or someone doesn’t get squashed!

The desk is very quiet to move and it can take up to 125 kg so even a full PC setup can easily be accommodated.

The desk is really comfortable to use, has a lot of space and is really easy to position however you want it. My only criticism, and that’s also a strong word, is that there are two round holes in the desk top for cables but there are no caps provided so there are just big holes there which slightly detract from how good the desk top actually looks. You can buy caps easily for a few pounds that match but it would have been better to have included them in the box rather than having to source from a third party.

There are different styles and sizes of desk tops to choose from as well, so there is easily something for everyone – just select the colours and styles and order away.

The total cost of the review set we received was £539.98 (on sale from £559.98). That cost included the black frame and white 140x70cm curved desktop with delivery.

All height-adjustable desks purchased on or after October 5, 2016 include a 5-year warranty for the frame, and a 3-year warranty for the motor, controller and switch, electronics and other mechanisms.

This is the second Flexispot desk we have had the pleasure in reviewing and they are excellent – you will wonder why you didn’t get one before!
