Today, we're going to be checking out the Porvata Gaming Desk - which is perfect for gamers and streamers looking for a large, sturdy, and functional piece of furniture to accommodate multiple monitor setups or other equipment. We'll look at the desk's features, including its custom-designed size, build quality, and a good add-on cable management system from Steelcase.
Recently, I wanted to switch from a sit-to-stand desk to a more traditional model for recording my podcast, gaming, and streaming. There are several reasons someone might switch from a sit-to-stand desk to a traditional desk; for me, I preferred the aesthetic of a conventional desk over the stand-up version, and I did not really use the standing option. Plus, I really wanted to get rid of the mess of wires under my desk. So I looked at dozens of options and decided on the perfect desk for me; a custom-sized model from Porvata that fit in an awkwardly sized area of my office.
Our Desk of Choice
The Porvata Gaming Desk is an outstanding choice for gamers, streamers, and podcasters. The large, composite wood top provides plenty of room for a multi-monitor setup and other gaming equipment. What I loved most is that you can custom order the size from 54-68 inches wide and 24 to 30 inches deep. You can also choose the color of the top, a few different leg finishes (all with a height of 29 inches), and even the number of drilled grommets. This level of customization pushed me over the edge to go with this model.
The desk is also built to last. The sturdy steel frame and solid legs ensure stability, even during the most intense gaming sessions. The desk can hold up to 220 lbs., which is more than enough for multiple monitors, gaming laptops, and other gaming peripherals you might have. The desk doesn't have a built-in cup holder or headphone hook, but you can easily add these to keep your gaming essentials within easy reach.
One of the most important aspects of a gaming desk is its appearance. The Porvata Gaming Desk is not only functional but also stylish. The top and legs look great, with a sleek and modern look that will complement any gaming setup. The desk comes in nine colors, so you can find the best one to complete your look.
Power & Cable Management Kit
While the Porvata desk does not have a built-in under-desk cable management system, we knew we needed to find a good one. Although many options are available, we decided on the Steelcase Universal Power & Cable Management Kit. I liked the solid build, and the kit includes all you need to easily organize and conceal power cords and cables. Throw in a power strip, and you can have multiple outlets with easy access for your monitor and other desktop power needs. The cable tray provides a clean and organized path for cables and can be installed under desks or on walls, while the cable ties allow users to bundle and secure everything. The kit also includes instructions for easy installation, making it convenient and efficient to manage power and cable connections in any space.
In conclusion, the Porvata Gaming Desk is an excellent choice for gamers. Its large (and customizable) surface area, sturdy construction, and great looks make it a functional and stylish piece of furniture. The desk is perfect for a multiple-monitor setup and can accommodate gamers of all sizes. It is a durable, spacious, and sleek desk that offers excellent value for its $899 price. Plus, even though the desk is custom-made in the USA, it still arrived at my house within five days. Excellent work, Porvata team.
