The Arozzi Arena is a full-surface mousepad desk featuring a good cable management system and plenty of space. Both gamers and normal users will appreciate the advantages that this computer desk offers, while the lack of electric height adjustment isn't necessarily a con, since it helps with pricing.

Personally, I like it. It is solid construction and a good wooden table of equal dimensions doesn't have a huge price difference. Given the nice (and huge) mousepad it is fairly priced.

Still no. Like the design a bit but I need to cover my desks (because of soldering and random metal/stone hobby work) and 80kg is not enough. If I can't drop an engine on it and stand on it at the same time what's the point? :p Also no cabinet, where am I supposed to store all the vitally important things?

(I live in a single room aparment with a big kitchen so any desks need to be truly multipurpose)

Benchmark Scores I once clocked a Celeron-300A to 564MHz on an Abit BE6 and it scored over 9000.
I'm more interested in the cost of the mousepad than the desk itself, though the desk has merits of its own:

1. It's something that can be delivered easily - and that's important in this era of online purchasing.
2. The cable management features are not something many other consumer desks come with
3. The subtle curve to the front is a feature that I really appreciate at my office desk.

Sadly, the full-surface mousepad is a necessity, since it covers the joins in the desk surface, but at €80 it's not overpriced, given its sheer size. Even if it doesn't wear out, the occasional drinks spillage and difficulty in cleaning a mousepad makes it likely that you'll be replacing it a few times over the lifespan of the desk.

I don't know about this 80kg load, but with that 399 USD price, I can buy a big and decent office table at my local furniture store that you jump on it and it won't shake or break. And it come with drawers.
Or similar style/quality table with less than 70 USD that exclude an oversize mouse pad.

Got this for half that MSRP off Massdrop. It's a good desk, mostly, but it rocks. They argued it's user error, but there aren't may ways to put it together. So I think there were some early QC issues and they refused to accept responsibility. I'm still using it, it's just propped up with another desk I was going to use anyway alongside.

Its a shame the desk got damaged in transport, because what was revealed underneath didn't look good at all. This desk build quality is abysmal, the materials used are ultra cheap. The reviewer had trouble with a few bolts... that alone is telling. Cheap, badly machined junk. I've gone through a broad range of IKEA bolted furniture and not once did I need more than the provided materials - go figure...

Honestly it looks like a cheap plank with cheap feet underneath. Rounded off so we don't damage our toes? These will still rip them right open. A rounded off base isn't a square slab of metal that was bent to the ground a bit; its just a slab of metal. The rubber feet are rather small too so they will leave visible marks on many surfaces as weight is applied to it.

As others said, a very expensive mouse mat. You can find indestructible office (corner) desks at just about half the money, and those have cable management throughout both feet and all the way across, a truly solid workspace and a coating that lasts for decades...

for an IKEA alternative, it's not bad considering it comes with all the accessories in one price. the mousemat that covers the entire table doubles as a protection to the MDF board.
