Looking for that slick design in a desk that represents your gaming personality better than your typical wooden desk? Something that assists you in bringing your best or simply brings with it some added luxuries that make relaxing easier like having a place to keep your cup?
Every gamer is different, let it be LED accessorizing or being just the right height, and we have a list of four really good desks to sum things up with that will fit most of the needs the average gamer might be looking for. The following desks aren’t exactly in any specific order since in the end, it is all about your own personal preferences when it comes to zeroing it down to one specific model.
One of the most important things is fewer distractions, thus giant L-shaped desks are out of the equation. You want a space that allows you to focus on nothing but the game, and only the needed things to go with it. Things like a drink holder of course, or a place to store your controllers.
This desk is kind of an all-around winner of specs. It is sturdy and large enough for one to two monitor setups. It does have cup holder to place your beverage in. It also has a small rack at the top right to store some CD cases with and up to two gaming controllers. It has built-in LED lighting and a number of uniquely shaped abstract edges to give the desk a custom personality with (these extra shapes going around are plastic, but they do look cool). There is also a built-in hook on the left side to store your headphones on and wire paths to make sure everything in your setup looks and runs clean.
It even comes with a large mouse pad that covers the space of both your keyboard and mouse (just not the entire desk).
It is also affordable, currently only $189, making it a steal when it comes to how much a fancy gaming desk could normally run you.
Of course, if a drink holder and CD rack is a bit too much and you prefer a more minimal look, you can chase after the common flat design that most gamers wind up going after. With this extra-wide desk, you get enough space for up to 3 monitors. It also comes with LED lighting around the edges, and a full desk-sized mouse pad to make sure you are covered no matter what (it also keeps the scratches off the desk when you get a little too excited).
It features a built-in USB hub for your keyboard, mouse and anything else that needs to be connected, right on the surface, as well as a place to put your phone if it supports wireless charging (that’s one less wire running somewhere). It also looks pretty cool.
Of course, now you are talking about normal gaming desk pricing with a model like this, however that might not be an issue this round since it is hard to catch it in stock. It comes and goes each month, and getting your hands on one really depends on timing.
Skipping the LED lighting all-together, you could always go for one of the most common gaming desks out there, the Arozzi Arena. Also sporting the surface area for up to three monitor setups, the Arena is a clean slate, with no accessories hanging off the size and no LED lighting. It is height adjustable and comes in a number of colors (red, blue, green, white and black).
Just like the last one, it offers a full desk-size mouse pad that is machine washable, and it also looks kind of cool. It also offers some cable management underneath and comes from a name that just about every gamer in the world has seen before when it comes to desks and chairs.
Like the last one, the price is within more of the normal range (aka, high) as it will run you around $330+. But hey, you get what you pay for as this thing is built like a rock.
Finally, what if you can’t decide if you want to sit or stand. Long hours getting to that back of yours making you feel like a little stretch? Try out ApexDesk’s Elite Series 71″ W Electric Height Adjustable Standing Desk, which allows you to adjust the height of the desk on the fly, any time you need it.
Of course, now you are definitely breaking out the wallet, as something like this will run you over $600. However it does bring with it a more elegant approach to a gaming desk, merging both gaming desk with your more traditional wooden-like design. You lose the giant mousepad, so you will have to come up with your own solution. There is no LED lighting or anything. However, you get to bring it anywhere between 29 and 48 inches in height, and it can support up to 225 pounds of gaming setup, making it a sturdy beast.
It comes in multiple finishes and you can swap out the cable holes of course with custom pockets that offer power plugs, USB and more.
So there you have it! Four incredible gaming desks to choose from that covers just about anyone’s fancy. Which specific model depends on what you yourself are looking for in a desk. All four of these models are formidable, although one of them is hard to find. From lighting to accessories to being able to control the height on demand, these desks cover a lot of ground.
So which gamer are you?
