So after we’ve shown you a variety of height adjustable options for your workspace, it’s time to make the big brand comparison that’s been in your head since the beginning of this article.

Cost

Varidesk requires a deeper pocket for sure. For similar models the difference in price is 100$ and more.

With the Flexispot you definitely spend less, and some people love the deal they get. Others still swear by Varidesk.

In our opinion, Flexispot is definitely the next best thing, if you’re on a budget and looking for a more affordable option.

Assembly

This is the area where the Varidesk excels, as most of its products come fully assembled out of the box. The Flexispot arrangement requires some drilling, lining up and screwing in.

Design

Easier adjustability – Most customers prefer the design of the Flexispot because the pneumatic assist it provides makes it easier for lifting and lowering.

The Varidesk works with spring action and some customers have a hard time with lifting or lowering the Varidesk.

Space saving design – People that work in cubicles or have a need to save space in their home will prefer the Flexispot design. Its work surface raises vertically and doesn’t hang over the desk; this helps with stability as well.

Larger work surface – The Varidesk has a lot of borders and cut out areas on their surfaces, whereas the Flexispot provides a clean smooth surface, giving you more space to work with.

In our experience people that can afford the price-range definitely go for the Varidesk, but we say it’s worth it to give Flexispot a chance. Not just for its good price-range but also for its good reputation among customers.

We hope our Flexispot Standing Desk Review 2019 was informative enough, and it answered some burning questions regarding different brands. Till next time.
