Atlantic Pro Review
The Atlantic Gaming Desk is similar to the Atlantic Gaming Desk Pro that we reviewed earlier in this article, and it features much of the same options, and is a little smaller than the Atlantic Gaming Desk Pro is. This compact design and layout is an excellent solution for anyone that has limited space in their current living setup.
This is definitely a lighter desk that offers little resistance when it needs to be moved and stowed away. As well as these great attributes, this gaming desk features a smart looking table top with wire guide holes, as well as a cable management tray that runs underneath. This forms part of the cable management system and is one of the selling points of this particular product.
The legs are sturdy and stable, and it allows for the table to endure even the heaviest of PC gaming rigs. It has special non-marring feet, and steel rod enforced construction, which means that moving this desk around won’t scuff your flooring. 40lbs is the maximum load-bearing weight that the unit can take, and a it will hold a 27″ display monitor on its surface.
If you the convenience of speakers and cable management from the larger version of this desk caught your attention, then you will be pleased to know that this desk has retained much of that functionality and design. This unit has some great bits and pieces that make it a technology lover’s dream. This includes a charging stand, a liquid-crystal design (LCD) stand for your display, keyboard and peripheral storage areas, and a headphone hook, which is great for people that don’t know what to do with their gaming accessories.
The metallic finish features a steel and carbon fiber aesthetic that will please those that prefer a modern looking piece of furniture. There is also a charging station, speaker tray and storage drawer that adds extra capacity to your storage requirements. There is a table-top reinforcement bar that helps to prop up the top surface, as well as a monitor stand.
The monitor stand provides an elevated viewing position that many gamers consider to be more favorable on their necks during extended periods of time. For those console gamers, there are also console controller hooks that will allow players to hang up their controllers when not in use. There is also a game storage rack that allows for neat and safe storage of games and movies. The trim plates that are installed in conjunction with the cable management system means that tangled cables will not be a problem with this desk.
The price of this table puts it in the middle of our pricing table, between value and premium selections. A 27″ screen is probably the biggest you can have on the desk, but you may get away with a slightly bigger screen than that, providing it isn’t heavier than the maximum load rating for the desk.
The beverage holder is a welcome sight on this model, which will continue to protect all of your electronic devices from spillages and condensation. The drinks holder is made from the same wire frame construction as the rest of the desk’s cable management system. As a gaming room piece, there is a great deal for prospective buyers to benefit from.
40lbs of load-bearing capacity is plenty of strength for anyone that is looking to stack up the table full of technology, and is ample for most gamers. This creates an even sturdier gaming desk than what you would assume from its relatively small footprint, so not only is this a compact gaming desk, but it has the strength and build quality to compete with other, heavier desks.
This desk is an attractive piece of functional furniture that not only looks good, but offers a really clean looking and strong desk. Previous owners of the desk have struggled to find any faults with it, and the overall aesthetics in conjunction with the rest of this package, creates a fantastically well build and excellently designed piece of furniture that serves both as a gaming table but also as a standard desk as well. PC and console gamers are both catered for on this entertainment platform, making this a desk that is as versatile as it is attractive.
