So it's a cheap MDF top (at that thickness? Damn, don't attach a monitor arm, it's likely to break it.) with a cheap carbon fiber-look vinyl wrap, the flimsiest-looking legs I've seen in a while, no height adjustment (yay ergonomics!), a cup holder that seems designed for the person sitting at the desk next to yours (reaching that handle isn't going to be comfortable), and ... who thought product renders of an all-white product on a white background was a good idea? Literally any other colour would have been better.

I got a 72" x 30" height adjustable C-frame desk with an angle/depth adjustable keyboard tray that goes underneath the desk. For $280, I would imagine these Genesis HOLM gaming desks are manufactured with cheap parts made in China with questionable build quality... Nowadays, cheap & quality generally don't go together and for that price tag, I would be very leery of buying something like this.

Not necessarily, MDF is actually pretty good as long as properly treated and sealed. Most furniture uses mdf because, granted it's cheaper, but it's also more sustainable and requires little to no maintenance (again if treated properly).

In this case though, you're right, more than likely a piece of shit. It looks like 18mm (super thin for a desk) and the cheap "carbon fiber" vinyl doesn't look much better.

Its fine for cheap furniture if its treated properly like you said. If its not something thats going to be built to last for decades better to use cheap MDF, than some super light porous wood.

MDF is really the ideal material for cabinets though as its super dense, consistent, relatively strong, and cheap.

Y'all, I feel sorry for the person that buys this thing, as it looks like if the person does so much as a deep exhale anywhere near the desk, it very well may just fucking tip over from the force of the breath, LMAO :roll:

Note the leg frame shape the desktop sits on. Its a K-frame, meaning it can be "kicked" over. I don't think you could safely put a desktop case on it unless its small. I would like to see the specs for how much weight it's rated for. The desk I have is rated for around 300 lbs. This one looks like setting anything more than a monitor + 2 smallish speakers + keyboard + mouse would have it collapsing into a heap or breaking in half. They have a larger model that's around 60" iirc, which would be a complete waste of space if it can't support a decent amount of weight.

Same here, cause the desks I mentioned earlier are rated to hold 500lbs. Granted they weigh about 250lbs each, but just saying :)

Benchmark Scores I once clocked a Celeron-300A to 564MHz on an Abit BE6 and it scored over 9000.
I'm still thankful I had the forsight to spend £200 on a solid birch 180cm tabletop about 22 years ago.
  • It has a wireless charger and a heaphones hanger, but in better locations.
  • It doesn't have a cup holder, but last time I checked, tables don't need cup holders - you can just put the cup (prepare to have your mind blown) on the table!
  • I have a gas-lift, fully-articulated monitor arm and since that is 10x better than a shelf, I'd actively discourage anyone from buying a desk with a monitor shelf as that would get in the way of the arm.
Other benefits to this solid birch table:
  • It's strong enough to hold the weight of two people, so I used it as a scaffold to replaster and repaint my ceiling.
  • It's height-adjustable between 64 and 94cm
  • When it gets scratched I can just sand it down and laquer it again. It's not a thin plastic veneer over cheap MDF, it's 30mm of wood all the way down
If you really like the looks of this for $280 then I guess it's a low-effort, one-click online purchase but honestly for that price you should get a proper strong tabletop, four legs, and a gas-lift monitor arm.
You can buy some white 3M Dinoc carbon wrap for it with the leftover change if you really want to cover up a timeless, classy wooden finish, but there's no accounting for taste.

I have an electric Ikea Bekant, and while it's more expensive than this and still a veneer over MDF (I assume, at least some form of particle board), it's a good quality oak veneer, likely thick enough to be sanded and refinished if needed, and the top is quite sturdy. Also love the sit/stand functionality, but even without that height adjustment is absolutely mandatory for ergonomics. And gas lift monitor arms are one of the better inventions of the past few decades.
