After searching online for weeks and comparing many, MANY different offerings, I decided to go for this workstation because it seemed to have everything I needed:
- Wheels, so I can move it around and reach the cables behind it more easily for maintenance etc.
- Solid looking build
- Platform on the bottom that allows me to put my desktop PC, UPS, and subwoofer there
- Sufficient amount of rack space and useful distribution
- Keyboard drawer, so I can have my MIDI keyboard on top and my PC keyboard in the drawer - everything ready when I need it
- The additional top surface consists of a single section - my studio monitors have their own stands, and I prefer having a 'middle section' to put my screens on, as opposed to 'left and right sections' intended for putting studio monitors on
- CD racks for all of the CD's I bought last century! (just kidding, I left those things out to increase my usable surface area, which does not seem to affect structural integrity)
Came very well packed (you can build your own village out of all the cardboard). Build feels solid. I finally have all the space I needed and every centimeter is useful. Due to the added weight of all my gear, it doesn't roll away by itself (I'm not even using the brakes), which is good. But it will still roll if I push it hard enough, which was my original requirement.
As for the downside: The top spaces in all 3 rack areas don't seem to fit any of my 19" hardware, so I have to leave it empty, causing a gap and reducing the amount of usable rack space.
This is not a major problem for me, since I never intended on filling them up completely anyway, and from my seat I can't see the gaps. In fact, the gap in the top rack has a nice side-effect; it allows me to clearly see all buttons and lights on my 1U recording interface, which has been relocated into the second-to-top rack slot due to the top one not fitting.
I did struggle with another 1U item as well. Though I did get it into the rack almost where I wanted it, I had to leave out the top screws because the hole was misaligned. Not 100% sure if that's due to the rack in this desk or the sizing of that 19" unit, but it had been in another rack before without issues. To put this in perspective though, the other 19" equipment I put in the rack (5 items varying from 1U to 3U) fit just fine.
In the end, I'm extremely happy with this workstation. I have a mix of rack gear and other stuff, and I got all of it in there in the way I wanted. However, if you intend to fill up every single rack slot, you'll probably be disappointed (unless you're good at DYI and figure out some alternative solution).
