While this desk may not come with as many bells and whistles as some “gaming” branded desks, it’s certainly a spacious budget option. Many L-shape desks come with shelves and drawers attached that arguably take up more space than they provide. The SHW L-shaped option keeps it simple yet sizable.

This desk will provide plenty of surface area for additional monitors, but it also has a plethora of leg space underneath. If you’re on a budget and you want a desk that’s simple and gets the job done, check out the SHW.

This desk is basically the R1-S on performance-enhancing drugs. If desks were tested like UFC fighters, consider the Z60 to be Jon Jones. This desk has a number of the same features as the R1-S, including the RGB lighting and various attachments. But it also has much more.

The Z60 is much larger than the R1-S and comes with a mouse pad that eclipses virtually the entire surface of the desk. If you want to experience this desk at its full power, however, it gets pricey.

The coolest thing about this desk might be its adjustable keyboard tray, which unfortunately isn’t included. If you want a flashy yet functional desk to accompany your gaming zone, the Z60 might be right for you.
