I waited a bit before posting a review to see how I felt about the desk after the "new wow" factor wore off for me. I built it over a month ago now and still in love with it. The lights don't even have to be on, I just have to walk into the room and it makes me smile.
The only thing that makes me sad is I couldn't fit my Casio MZ-X500 on the designed keyboard tray they have available for this desk. A friend who does furniture modifications talked about adding extensions, I think it was, onto the holder. I wonder if maybe the company could come up with something for this? I don't mind if the desk needs to be kept a bit higher to fit my legs comfortably underneath. I need about an extra two inches. Your staff was amazing at helping me figure out before ordering that the keyboard just wouldn't fit. I would REALLY love to be able to place a future order to fix that!!
I adore your company and I show off my desk on live stream sometimes. People love your product when they see it, both on streams and in person.
Also, the ergonomic ability allows me to keep working longer when I'm having pain issues and standing is easier than sitting. I LOVE that feature.
If anyone is reading this to consider the desk and they're worried, here's a few things I was worried about before ordering that I can clear up-
1.) Yes, the RGB lights came with my desk (I was concerned they'd changed that policy because I saw the option to buy the kit) and they were pretty simple to install, just take your time with it.
2.) I remember about the video to put the desk together had different color adhesive protector on the RGB lights than what I had, but that is what you're trying to peel off, just that super thin covering, not the white part against the LED strip.
3.) The USB port add option, you'll need a converter for the end of the plug, it's not the normal power plug end we're used to.
4.) You're going to want a friend to help you carry the desk inside and to help build it. I did it alone only because I had to, but be warned, this thing is a beast, one that is COMPLETELY worth every effort. It took a 350 lb. crate showing up at my house in a freighter truck. Again, worth the effort. I cannot picture myself with any other desk.
