ApexDesk Elite Series Review
Technology lovers will be impressed with the sci-fi functionality of this electronically controlled desk, as it comes equipped with 2 high torque electric motors. Height adjustment is achieved by pressing two toggle switches on the underside of the desk, allowing you to adjust the table to suit your preferred table height, which is a really cool function to have at your disposal.
This means that you can even raise the surface up high enough so that you can stand and work if you want, which may or may not appeal to you, depending on your requirements. Standing while gaming sounds a little odd at first, but with health professionals having recently said that sitting is the new smoking, maybe having a few hours of standing once in a while when playing games is a good idea.
Being able to stand up next to your desk is also a good way of using it as a work bench, so that you don’t hunch over the table and cause a possible back strain or RSI occurrence.
The table is available in a variety of different colors, and that makes this one of the most customizable units in our round up. Colors that are available include: American Walnut/Black Frame, Black Top/Black Frame, Light Oak Top/Off-White Frame, Red Apple Top/Black Frame, Red Cherry Top/Black Frame, and Moonlight White Top/Off White Frame. These color combinations look pleasing on the eye, and add another layer of aesthetics to an already good looking gaming desk package.
It is quite refreshing to have such a wide array of colors that also show a resemblance to some of the older design schemes that were available back in previous times. The height adjustment heights are from 29-inches to 48-inches, and is achieved at 1.3-inches per second by dual motors. The table has enhanced stability that is achieved by having a one-piece fixed steel beam.
The motors have a 225-pounds capacity and a two button control panel for easy adjustment. Assembly is achieved by most users in around 30 minutes, but this is quicker if you are handy around the house and use your hands quite often.
The ergonomically shaped desktop is constructed from 1-inch thick 71-inches x 33-inches of scratch resistant laminate that covers a solid MDF core. This is one of the heavier products on our list, and it comes in at 134-pounds, meaning that it won’t be easy to knock anything over on your desk, especially if it is your beloved PC and console hardware. The weight makes this desk a veritable tank among furniture, and there is little doubt that this desktop is the heavy weight champion of this round up.
The table itself is quite simple, meaning that there is not much in the way of storage or shelving, but depending on your requirements, this could be a positive attribute for anyone that is looking for a solid gaming desk to complement their living space’s decor. As far as the design and shape goes, we definitely have what amounts to being somewhat of a winner.
The motor control design is really unique to our review, and it is definitely a unit for the technology lovers among us. The cross bar free design is pleasing to the eye, and makes a lot more room below the table, so if you need to store anything or run cables underneath the top, then you will be able to do so without being interrupted by an unsightly cross bar.
Cable management is taken care of via the two cabling duct ports on the upper left and on the upper right of the desktop surface. These holes are covered up with plastic cap covers that can be popped out when you need to put away your column of cables such as USB cables from your keyboard and mouse, VGA cables and HDMI cables, headphone cables and so much more.
Network cables can also be routed through here, so you know that you won’t have any issues that pertain to cabling limitations. The overall surface area of this desk is more than roomy enough for multiple monitors, or a large viewing panel such as a gaming TV for your consoles. There are over 71 inches of surface for you to enjoy, which makes this one of our biggest tables in the review, and we certainly aren’t complaining.
This elite series desk from ApexDesk is really a great product to consider if you are looking for an ideal gaming area to play your favorite games, and if you are looking for something that stands out from the rest of the standard desks that have nothing other than manual desk heights, then this is probably the best selection that you can get for your money. Stability is yet another awesome feature that you can find here, and knowing that your desk will not fall over even if bumped into.
The first thing that a lot of people are concerned about when they learn about the motorized controls of this desk is how easy it is to assemble. It literally takes an absolute novice only 30 minutes to put this beast of a desk together, which is no time at all if one considers that this desk is not only large in size, but also in terms of features as well.
And pricing is really competitive considering all these factors, as mechanical components are usually really expensive. The weight, size and aesthetics all come together to create a premium looking and feeling desk that has an ideal footprint with amazing electronic features to boot.
If you have a home office, then this is a good go between item that will serve you well as both a gaming platform, and as a productivity workspace that will inspire you to buckle down and keep working as and when you need to.The table legs will also come in handy as the feet offer a reduced scuff mark output and will not damage the floor surface that it finds itself resting on, provided that there is no skidding or dragging of this desk.
Electronically changeable desks are just cool, and if you have one in your home or office it is sure to be a real head turner. The overall weight might not be ideal for everyone, but having a heavier gaming desk is generally better for your PC hardware to rest on, as there is less chance of it being shifted by accidental contact from people trying to walk past. The range of colors also counts in the ApexDesk Elite Series 71″ W Electric Adjustable Desk’s favor, making it one of the most variable desks in this list.
