This also means that you have only a 100 x 80 cm area if you want to center all of your equipment on the main area; then you have extra vertical space on your right side. It is a bit weird but we are pretty sure some people will ask for this for various use cases such as gaming PC + work laptop in home-office environments.

Its downside-T-shaped legs allow height adjustment between 69 and 117 cm. Since it has to carry the computer components inside, it is very thick as a desk; 22.5 cm.

The glass surface of the desk can switch between opaque and transparent mode, which is really cool. Although, this glass also serves as the cover for the PC. When you decide to change or check something on the PC, you will need to take the whole glass away first. Yes, you will need to put away everything on your desk before doing it. And yes, the glass might end up being broken in this process. The glass should also weigh around 22 kilograms.

The legs of Utespelare are A-shaped and they allow height adjustment between 68 and 78 cm.

Thankfully, it is removable.
Overall, Amazon Basics Gaming Computer Desk is a nice choice as a budget desk; providing the basics but not delivering anything fancy.
