Eureka Ergonomic Z1-S Gaming Desk Review
Gaming In Style
Do you currently have your $3000 gaming rig set up on a desk that looks like it’s from 1950? A lot of people do. It’s perfectly fine to do so, but it’s not optimal.
Gaming desks are designed to provide a large enough area for your entire rig, and they usually have a few extra features that enhance your comfort while playing. Not to mention, they’re pretty stylish. They’re definitely more visually appealing than some wood desk that’s chipped and cracked.
Having a high-quality gaming computer desk helps to set you apart from other gamers. It cements your status as someone who takes their gaming seriously, and a good gaming desk is something that every dedicated gamer should acquire at some point.
In this review, we are going to take a look at a gaming desk that will enhance your gaming experience. The Eureka Z1-S is comfortable, lightweight, stylish, roomy, and feature packed. More importantly, it offers all of that for a reasonable price. Let’s get to the review.
Room To Play
The Z1-S provides plenty of room for your gaming rig and accessories. The surface is 44.5″ long, and 24.2″ wide. That’s more than enough room to comfortably sit your keyboard, mouse, monitor, tower, and any peripherals you may have, and you’ll still be able to rest your arms on it.
Carbon Fiber Top
Wood and other common desk materials are prone to damage, and they’re usually heavy. The Z1-S has a carbon fiber top that is damage resistant, comfortable, and hard to stain or dirty.
The carbon fiber top also lowers the overall weight of the desk. So, you won’t have to call any buddies over to help you move it. The entire unit weighs slightly less than 40 pounds.
You won’t find four ugly legs dangling from the bottom of the Z1-S. The desk was designed in a z-shape, and that allows you to have more room to maneuver, and the long stabilization bars at the bottom will keep it upright. Through testing, Eureka has guaranteed that the Z1-S won’t wobble or topple over due to its visually appealing and modern design.
This is more of a vanity feature than anything else. The Z1-S can be plugged into your computer’s USB port. That will turn on and power a series of blue LED lights on the table’s surface. They provide a little bit of light encase you have to look around your desk in the dark, but they’re mainly there to make the desk look futuristic. It may not be the most necessary feature, but it adds a level of coolness that gamers are bound to appreciate.
The desk is 30″ high, and that leaves plenty of room for even the tallest gaming chairs. You won’t have to worry about sitting far away from your monitor because your chair doesn’t fit.
We suggest that you pair this desk with a Respawn 200 or similar gaming chair. They’re super comfortable, and they’ll help you make the most of the Z1-S.
Spilling liquids onto electronics is obviously not something that you want to do. However, mistakes happen.
Eureka has added a wire-frame cup holder to the side of the Z1-S for you to safely store all of your favorite drinks. It’s large enough for a Big Gulp, and it connects directly to the desk. So, you won’t have to worry about your drink ending up on the floor, either.
If you’re a dedicated gamer, you’ve probably invested in a fancy headset stand. Not everyone has, though. If you still need a place to hold your favorite gaming headset, the Z1-S has you covered.
A thick, wire-frame, headset stand is connected to the upper right-hand corner of the desk. It’s sturdy enough to hold the heaviest steel headsets, and it doesn’t detract from the futuristic look of the Z1-S.
This headset stand can house everything from a SteelSeries Arctis Pro, to a set of Turtle Beaches with ease. You might still want to invest in a fancier headset stand, but it won’t be necessary.
A controller stand is a must-have peripheral for serious gamers, and the Z1-S provides one. The controller stand is a universal design. So, you shouldn’t have any issues fitting your favorite controller into it. In fact, it’s a rack design that will allow you to store several controllers on it at once.
Gaming Mouse Pad
The Z1-S comes with a free mouse pad that is roughly 4 times the size of a standard pad. The extra-large mouse pad allows you to make large motions with your gaming mouse. So, you’ll never end up missing a shot just because you couldn’t keep moving your mouse to track an opponent.
The Z1-S is a unique design. Despite being thoroughly tested for stability, its odd shape might still make you a little nervous about setting all of your heavy gaming gear on top of it. Luckily, the Z1-S has support arms that connect the legs to the top of the desk. This allows it to hold a lot of weight, and it should put your mind at ease about any potential stability issues.
Gaming desks aren’t a necessity, but they are really nice to have. You don’t even have to break your wallet to get one. The Z1-S costs less than $200, and it has a ton of features that will improve every gaming session you use it for.
The carbon fiber top is durable and stylish, and the unique, z-shaped design is something that will look good with any gaming rig. It’s extremely sturdy, and it has plenty of room for all of your favorite gaming gear. In addition, it comes with several goodies that will make your gaming sessions more comfortable and convenient. Overall, it’s just a great value.
