Great desk, a little over priced. 2/2/2018 11:21:49 AM

Pros: - desk total height is higher than most other desks. I had to raise my office chair up to be comfortable which was great because im a big dude.
- glass top is super heavy and is what essentially holds the desk in place. Easy to clean and looks great.
- plenty of inside storage and configurable spaces for a solid super system.
- the main chasis has 2 levels/layers with many removable panels underneath to give access to cables or route wiring.
- great airflow thru the main chasis. Put in a bunch of Noctua fans and enjoy low sound and great air cooling.
- the leg walls come off and have little wiring cutouts for easier wire routing.
- 4 decent face cutouts for DvD drives, fan/air sensors, or anything else.
- arrived in 3 large mostly put together sections. Major assembly not difficult but see my cons and other details below.
- they include a large roll of soft rubber foam, one side is sticky, that you roll out on to the top edge of the desk so the glass is held in place and doesnt move. They give you more than you need so in case you mess up a little there is more.
- i kinda felt like a car mechanic, being able to crawl under my desk, take parts off, fix or add things, and then button it down.
- if you do it right, yoy have decent access to some of your parts without taking off the glass top.

Cons: - it arrived decently, but one leg with a solid facing was scratched up badly. I had to use some metal primer and paint to seal and fix it up.
- shipped with no instructions. Had to google and download a pdf on the table. And the documentation available is very thin and sparse.
- the alluminum and powder coating were decent quality.
- Assembly: the mfg used tons of little hex head screws everywhere. I had to search deep in my toolboxes for 3 different sized hex head allen wrenches and hex head drivers to handle the screws properly.
- the existing screws are cheap which strip easily and the hex holes warp easily you torque too much during assembly and configuration. I had to drill out a few screws and holes, and use my own screws and nuts to fix a few spots.
- the desk is pretty flimsy. The glass is what gives it weight and holds it in place. I think my titanium/alluminum mountain bike which i can lift with my pinky weighs less.
- the power supply bays on the bottom in the back are a little awkward for installation. I couldnt slide mine in thru the rear cavity so i had to unscrew parts of the desk, and force my PSU into place. It was a little difficult to propery anchor the PSU in the desk too.
- the desk cost is pretty high considering all of the work you are going to have to personally do with or to the desk. For those considering buy versus build for their own computer desk don't ever forget to take into consideration having to modify a desk made by someone else.

Overall Review: I bought this desk instead of building one from scratch. (Build vs Buy). I am still 50/50 with myself on if i should have built my own desk due to how much work i had to do to this desk.

If you're a bigger person, this desk is great. If you're smaller, then you will dwarfed by this desk.

I highly reccomend taking the main chassis apart completely and rebuilding it so you know how much room is avaialble in specific areas and know which access panels are best for your setup. I took my table apart a few times and made some minor cuts & tweaks to suit my equipment. Its like a machine. Get in and learn it.

Be very careful when connecting all of your components together in this desk. I found it too easy to cause a short because metal components were touching the chassis. I migrated in some older equipment that I plan to upgrade in the near future and I believe I damaged my motherboard slightly through the electrical shock but it still works for now.
