When I decided to upgrade my workspace at home for all my music projects, I soon came across the products of StudioDesk. After a lot of thinking and measuring the Commander V2 Desk would be the best choice for me. And now it is 'shining' in the room I love working on it! The only difference between this demo model and a new one is the price! That makes this purchase even better. Thank you guys from StudioDesk for your craftmanship and service.

Hi Andre, what a difference! Love it!
As many others have written, the Commander V2 is a fantastic Production Desk! I absolutely love it. The assembly was a little tricky because of the many videos that you have to sift through to find all of the relevant information and the written assembly instructions are no longer accurate because of changes that have been made, but it's not excessively difficult if you're at least moderately handy.
The one thing I don't like is the fact that the top rack rail screws are not accessible after the desk is assembled. The assembly instructions provide a workaround for this by having you install your top rack component before finishing the assembly. However this solution would become a real problem if you ever needed to move or change your highest mounted piece of rack equipment. It's not a deal-breaking issue if you only use 2 lower screws to mount your top rack component; but this does seems to me like a design mistake that could've been easily corrected.
When you are going to buy a StudioDesk product, be aware you're buying the best you can find in the market. Everything is top notch. I whant to share with you just a piece of information: the desk weight was 170 kg when shipped. You need some help to mount it, as it is huge and HEAVY. Materials are SUPER. The design, the lights, the accessories, make it simply the best ever.
Why I gave four stars instead of five? Whell, from such a thing like this (the price is justified for the top quality brand - no excuse guys, quality costs), you expected well done assembly instructions. And actually they are there, in this web site with also many video. But be aware, you're going to find updates video (models with time changed) in different sessions. Just to be stright to the point: I discovered that the pullout keyboard must be installed before, but this piece of information is in a separate video, that I discovered when my desk was already mounted. I managed, of course, but this made me crazy to overcome the mistake. A company like this, can edit the main video and replace the old one with this information at once in the same video.
StudioDesk deserves five stars, this is just a hope, for the future customers, not to find themselves in a similar situation.
By the way, I LOVE STUDIODESK, I LOVE MY NEW STUDIO SETUP
