E-WIN 2.0 Edition RGB Gaming Desk looks awesome with the LEDs in full effect, and would make for a great gaming desk. My teenage son loves it, and it does look great with his gaming rig installed on it. It can still function as a more than adequate work space for homework, and with a 24" monitor in place for his gaming rig, there is still space for his Chromebook, with room to spare for an actual (paper) notebook, a text book, and his random decorations.
The whole thing is very sturdy, with a strong metal frame and legs, and that thick carbon fiber styled top locking it all together. The product page claims it can support up to 320 pounds, and I am not sure why it would need to, but this is definitely not a flimsy piece of furniture.
In the end, there were a few little things wrong with the desk that alone might be ignorable, but collectively they bothered me. To me, $400 is quite a bit for a table top style desk, and a good part of that price tag is owed to the cool factor of the LED lights. I don't think anything should be damaged, missing, or documented incorrectly at any price, but definitely not here.

the benefit of the doubt, and assuming our sample ran into some bad luck before it made it to me in order to explain some of the issues, it does seem like it would be a great product overall. That said, my tempered final assessment of the desk has it earning the Bigbruin.com "Gaming Approved" award.
» Very sturdy.
» Looks sharp.
» Lighting effects are very cool, and there are plenty to choose from.
» You can implement a few static color modes, as well as several animated scenes using the built in controller.
» Good sized desk gives you plenty of room for gaming and other tasks.
» Instructions are not great.
» Lighting controller works fine, but is aesthetically defective.
» Did not receive a headphone hook or controller stand, as indicated as included on the product page.
» USB power cord far too short, and I think it should come with a wall adaptor.
» A very nice desk for $400, if you didn't have to deal with any of the other "cons".
