Beat Desk All Black
From the moment my Studio Desk arrived in its 315lb shipping crate, I knew I'd made the right decision. Every part of this desk is sleek and professional, and it's completely transformed my studio space. It's the kind of center piece that brings everything together and gives it a purpose. The quality and efficient use of space is inspiring.
A couple of things I'll note:
First of all, I wasn't entirely prepared for just how heavy this thing is. Getting the pieces unloaded and moved around took a significant amount of time and effort.
Second of all, I highly recommend using the video guide to put this together. I actually found the printed version to be very hard to follow along with and some of the pictures weren't helpful at all. Another note: if you are purchasing the Beat Series Limited Edition, be forewarned that the video guide is for the regular version of the Beat Series, which doesn't have the top shelf that goes all the way across. Make sure you install the top shelf BEFORE you put the final end piece on.
Third of all, I was a little disappointed to find my mouse doesn't work with the glass top of the main working surface. It's an easy fix with a mouse pad, but I wanted to make note of it.
Lastly, my desk was just slightly off on the pre-drilled holes that connected the main horizontal board with the end pieces that fit on both sides of the main working surface. This slight misalignment makes it impossible for me to slide the main working surface back more than about four inches. At that point the fit is so tight that I have to use all my grip strength just to pull it back out again. I'd love to hear back from someone at Studio Desk to see if there is anything I could do to alleviate that issue. It's not an important enough feature to affect any part of my overall review, but it'd be nice to do something about it if possible.
Overall, I'm extremely happy with my purchase - Studio Desk just made a fan for life.
