We all have different parts to our gaming setups that we simply prefer to have over others, but when you bought that squeaking and unstable desk from some second-hand shop – the regret starts to swell in.
DXRacer believes the GD/1000 Gaming Desk will solve the annoyances that we all have faced one time or another. Do you remember seeing your desk with cables all over the place like spaghetti? Cable management is exactly one of many features for the DXRacer GD/1000 Gaming Desk and we’ll dive right into the details so that you can be sure what you’re getting yourself into.
To begin with this DXRacer review, the GD/1000 has 4 holes that are dedicated to running your cables through, which are the two holes that poke out on the surface of the DXRacer desk and the two holes in the center. When it comes to having a clean desk, the idea of eliminating cable clutter is something that can appeal to most gamers. A clean desk also means more room for your personal belongings, gaming peripherals or whatever else it is you need to place on top – more room for multiple monitors?
The useable surface of the table measures at 47.3″ x 31.5″ and that means you could easily place a big monitor or two small-sized monitors along with the usual keyboard, mouse and loads of room left over to play with. The GD/1000 also slopes down at a 10-degree angle and everything that lays on the table slightly leans towards the user for great ergonomics, but especially for the forearms. GD/1000 is very stable since the materials of the DXRacer gaming desk include natural wood for the surface, ABS plastic for the main structure, and the legs use steel rods. In addition, the large rotatable trapezoid feet allow this desk to prevent you from ruining your floors. However, this DXRacer desk is fairly heavy for some as it weighs 83 lbs and the carbon fiber feather cover on the backside attempts to add some edge.
If you experience things falling off the desk, the GD/1000’s “raised perimeter” or the rising enclosure at the back-end edges of the desk will prevent some items from falling off, but it’s probably going to happen anyway due to the “perimeter” rising only at the back. Weight capacity of this desk maxes out at 110 lbs or in other words – 7 bowling balls, but we suggest not trying that.
GD/1000 color options are limited and are available in black, red, green, and white
Here’s what we’ve got after doing this DXRacer review.
- Excellent cable management
- Plenty of usable space
- Great ergonomics
- Quality materials
- “Raised perimeter” has limited effect
- Few color options
The DXRacer GD/1000 is a gaming desk that helps keep the annoying problems at bay and its design is exceptionally solid. Although we think the weight of the table may be a good or bad thing for some folks, the GD/1000 appears to lean towards enhancing the gaming experience, maintaining a clean area and for getting rid of those pesky squeaking sounds!
