Anyone have a good desk to recommend? I've got a 20 year old corner desk and I hate it now...
I'm going to go to a mid tower (had an Obsidian 800D monster before...don't want that when I build again)
and I want to get rid of this old desk..

Budget?
How about the room, is it a nice room or an office, maybe a spare room at home?

Hah! This is funny, but a bit budget for me ;)
 
I've a budget of about 500 bucks for a decent desk.

Can't go wrong with the standard youtuber setup xD. Alex Drawers from Ikea with a butcher block countertop. total for me was about 290. However, it went up when I had 3D printed hulkbusters as the legs in between the drawers/countertop. 
 
Send us your setup once you're done!

are you up to building your own desk, Don't know the prices for wood and what not over your side of the pond but with $500 you could build a decent one to your specs

Don't care if it's used, as long as it is clean...don't need drawers...might be nice to have a hutch tho...never had a height adjustable...

The material isn't too important...just clean looking ...I don't think there's a HHR near me..I'll have a look thru the best gaming desks..
 
Thanks, guys..

I purchase this desk 2 months ago for my son, he has full tower and 2 monitors sitting on top of it, he's satisfied with it.

Although I got it on sale for 290.99 at the time.

I became a fan of large (dining room like) tables, since I have a lot of music equipment. Gives the area a nice workspace/productive vibe.

You can find many of these in different colors used on craigslist. Unless you're looking for another corner desk...

I have that and I really like it. Don't care for wood desks. I just put the two desks together along the wall and didn't use the corner piece.
 
Then I put the tower on this glass stand next to the desk.

Re: Computer desk recommendation 2018/07/29 17:51:50 (permalink)
Really I would recommend going into an office supply store and getting ideas of what you might want. Some people like keyboard trays, storage, file drawers. Its also good to know if you want like an L-shaped desk that allows room for gaming as well as doing paperwork.

Also I would recommend thinking of what you like about the desk you currently have and what you hate about it. Also if you have a desk at work what you like about that one and again what you hate. A lot of it is personal preference and I know my girlfriend loves her desk but I personally don’t like it as it puts the keyboard to high for my liking.

Use an Associates Code & SAVE 5% - 10% on your purchase. Just click on the associates banner to save, or enter the associates code at checkout on your next purchase. If you choose to use my code I want to personally say "Thank You" for using it.

any normal desk that you feel comfortable using should be fine.
it doesn't really matter that much.

If you have the time and knowledge build your own desk... Take your time and do some research on how to properly setup your chair and than build the desk around those specifications. That is what I did, you will be shocked at what a difference in comfort it makes. The other issue that I had as well was finding a desk that was large enough to hold three monitors and my PC tower, if you go the build your own route well you can basically make the desk as large as you want.  
 
Not the greatest picture, but here is my desk...

Since this is an older thread, curious what you came up with for your new desk. Did you take Panzlock's advice? It looks adjustable at least....

This reminds me of seeing a child sized cubicle for sale in China. The idea was to have a study space for your kid that looked like a real office to get them ready. It was kind of creepy since you could connect them together you know in case you wanted an office filled with children.

At least they're herding them into an office space instead of just the PLA.

Build one! It's cheap and you know you build it with good materials and not what we call madera molida that will break in a day lol, Plus you get to design your own based off how you want it.

I just hope you paint better than me, Cause I guess I'm not a painter and the paint with high usage areas is coming off lol

It started with a Desk spammer that was banned. Didn't get rid of him before others posted afterwards.
