    Looks awful... maybe that's a normal price for supporting height adjustment, but I'd probably want to be paid that money to have to live with that thing.

    To me it looks ugly. Rather buy corner glass desk that looks a lot better for fraction of that price.

    Literally it's a riser desk with a soft pad and RGB on top.

    I'm not a "professional gamer" but somehow I think that those people would prefer not to have the distraction of flashing Christmas-tree lights blinking in their faces...;)

    Ye, that's like the most annoying freakin' thing ever... bright lights in the corner of your eyes.

    Could be used as Disco light in the rare case of having lan party in 2019 and a girl that you like is part of it and you want to bang her after a dance. in that case this table price is still too much :v

    I was about to tell you about how functionality was more important, then I checked the link and good lord were you right.

    Surely something less horrific should be available for similar or less money?

    It looks far better in real life.

    The blue is different. It's a lot darker than the picture. On the picture the side of the desk looks like blueish but in reality this is two plastic window with LED writing on them. Of course you can turn off the LED writing or chose the color of it.

    Here's better pictures of it :

    LIke i said you can change the LED color or turn them off. It's not the best looking desk around but it's highly functional and it was the only good adjustable desk sold in my area. Price was good too considering it's made of metal and has mouse pad the size of the desk. And the mouse pad is actually pretty good i would say.

    Like it's been said countless of time for all LED products the LED can be turned off and they are turned off.

    Because that was the only adjustable desk available. It's not like the LED adds 200$ to it anyway. And it's cool during Christmas ;)

    i mean after looking at your 400$ adjustable desk and the ones on amazon, it does add 200$ just because of the LED's.
    the article features an automatic rising desk, which without LED's are between $300-400 which tells me the desk in the article is marked up by a massive amount due to LED"s.

    Looks great for what it is. :D

    Can't say the same about the price tag, but getting one custom made may be an option for some. Still, Thermaltake usually make cases with pretty dense materials, although electrical components like LEDs can vary in quality. That said, you can probably expect your grand children to still be using one of their metal based cases.

    And it would probably break, too.

    $1,200? For that price I would had expected something more like this tbh.

    [​IMG]

    But I get it. Everything must be in the 4 digit price range this days. Phones, gpu's and even 50-100 dollars "gaming" desks.


    Btw, got this below used in mint condition locally for €40 and it's also adjustable. And the best part? No RGB.
