Purchased the Beat 2.0 with Red trim last month. I'll start by saying I did extensive research about production desks before settling on StudioDesk. I have had the same desk from a different manufacturer for over 10 years and was looking to downsize and replace it. The ordering process was easy and the package arrived on time and in one box. It was packaged well, and after unboxing all the pieces was able to put it together rather easily following the video guide online. Be prepared to have someone help move it after delivery though because the box is super heavy and hard to move. I opted for both the LED lights and cable management tray as extras. Both were well worth it. The functionality of the desk is great, and I especially enjoy the padded arm rest. The keyboard tray is adjustable which is also a nice touch. It's made with quality materials, has some weight to it and looks impressive, even for a small workstation. Anyone that has seen it often comments on how professional it looks. Overall I am super pleased with my choice and would recommend this desk to anyone with a smaller home workstation. I would like to give an additional shout out to their customer service for staying in touch about shipping and availability on the Cable Management Tray (which was back ordered). Glad I chose this company. For the price, you are getting a quality product.
I ordered the beat series desk from Studiodesk and I have to say I am impressed the build quality was a 10 the assembly process was a breeze. This Beat series was for my office so I needed the smaller desk I will be ordering one of the larger Studiodesks for my studio I haven't decided which one yet. I would highly recommend this product and I am extremely happy with my decision.
Thanks Chris, wishing you many hour of inspiration with your new Beat desk!
If you are looking for a great studio desk it's perfect. The desk suits my needs I must be completely honest the desk is a little bigger than I expected so make sure you have suitable space. As far as the design though, it's sturdy, beautifully crafted and makes my workflow a lot easier. Customer service is also amazing. My desk came with 2 of the same pieces and I contacted customer service and it was resolved within a few days. I must admit this company has surpassed my expectations. It's well worth the investment! I hope this review helps you make that decision to purchase, you will not be disappointed.
I love my white StudioDesk BEAT. It holds my gear in place and within easy reach. I've used it almost daily for 6 weeks now.
I use the keyboard drawer in and out all the time--great! I also find myself sliding in the glass tabletop a little when I pull out the lower shelf, which works well. My computer monitor is wider than the space between the BEAT's two shelves, but the base of the monitor sits on the desk and the flat monitor then comfortably comes in front of the shelves a little. This means it's in the right place and at a good height for me.
I bought white Kali LP-6's to match my white BEAT--awesome look! I use a Logitech MX Master 3 mouse on the glass tabletop, which works flawlessly.
