In this article, we’ll cover 15 of the best gaming desks you can find this 2019 so you can make a sound investment by picking the right one for you.
How to Buy the Best Gaming Desk in 2019
There are over 155 million Americans who play video games and only those who are serious about gaming know how important it is to pick the right gaming computer desks. But choosing the right one is not an easy task to complete, especially with all the different features and sizes to choose from.
So, to help you out, here are the 7 most important features and factors that you should consider when buying a gaming desk:
Before you go out and shop around, ask yourself how much are you willing to pay for a gaming desk. Gaming desks can cost under $100 or up to $1,000; and they can get expensive quick.
Shelves and Drawers
Okay, this is partially a joke, but, as you can see looking through this list, it’s becoming ever more popular for desks to not have drawers. And if office desks aren’t coming equipped with drawers, gaming desks are even less likely. If this is something you want, then it will help you trim out a lot of the competition immediately.
You don’t want to order a gaming desk or gaming table only to find it won’t fit inside your room. While it’s true that you can just send it back if it won’t fit, that’s a big hassle. To avoid this problem, take your measuring tape and take note of the dimensions of the space.
It’s also worth checking whether or not it will fit through the door (or how will it fit through!) as a precaution. As such, it is often best to build the desk in the room you expect to be using it; this is even more true of the heavier desks or the L-shaped desks.
Space on the desk, that is, not in your room. In general, the more space you have, the easier it is to organize and/or hoard things on top of your desk for eternity (I’ve had a game of Taboo sitting on my desk for a solid month for no real reason).
On the other hand, if you know you are likely to hoard, like me, you might want a smaller desk just so that you literally can’t fit things other than your keyboard, mouse, and other important accessories on it.
Plus, evaluating the space ahead will give you an idea whether or not it has enough room for your double (or triple!) 4K screen setup.
Gaming desks come in many different forms and types, too. Aside from the standard rectangular design, there are desks that have an L-shape or even a U-shape, both of which are perfect for corner setups. There are also desks that are foldable, ideal for on-the-go gamers.
Height Adjustment Feature
Gaming chairs aren’t the only gaming peripheral that can be adjusted because there are now desks that can be adjusted electronically. Take the Stand Steady Tranzendesk Executive Standing Desk for example.
This can be particularly useful if you don’t fit into the normal height standards, no pun intended.
The material goes hand in hand with durability and as a result, better materials will quickly drive up the price. Gaming desks have a wide variety of materials they can be made: wood, glass, plastic, and a mix of everything in between.
If you plan on placing your tower on top of the desk itself, then you’ll definitely want a desk with a high weight capacity.
