Overview

The Gamers Paradise desk is the first desk designed completely for computer enthusiasts who want a premium desk. The concept stems from the idea that a desk should acts like an extension of your computer and all computer devices, including the computer & monitor, directly plug into the desk. This concept makes it easier to plug in and maneuver devices without awkwardly bending over or reaching behind your computer, as such with current desks. It also allows you to avoid the tangled wire mess beneath the desk, by plugging in the computer and its devices directly into the desk.

The desk will be built in Canada, in our facilities.

USB

The Gamers Paradise desk is equipped with 7 USB ports that are strategically placed on the desk’s surface and function to connect to your computer and/or its devices. This is the first concept of its kind and is one of the many ways the Gamers Paradise desk is superior to all other computer enthusiast desks. Two of the ports are located on the front left side and allow the user to quickly plug in a portable hard drive, USB key, Ipod or even USB head phones, directly into the computer. And we can’t think of anyone who enjoys changing the batteries in their wireless mouse or dealing with the mess of cords around their desk, so we’ve placed another 3 USB ports in the centre of the desk. These ports allow the user the flexibility of plugging in wired or wireless devices, such as a keyboard, mouse, etc. There are 2 more ports located on the back of the desk for larger devices, such as a printer.

Power 

The inclusion of power into the desk is another unique aspect to Gamers Paradise desk. Not only will this allow to power up the desk and its components, but it also provides fully functioning power plugs to power up the monitor, printer, etc. There are a total of 6 power plugs located near the back of the desk.

Monitor - HDMI - DVI available!

Since the user is already plugging in all their devices into the desk, it only makes sense to plug in their monitor as well. The monitor(s) can be easily plugged into the desk by using HDMI cables. Saving the user from a wire clutter, which would normally occur with a conventional desk.

Lights - LED

The Gamers Paradise desk has 2 light bars located at the back of the desk to illuminate the area behind your monitor. Not only does this provide ambient light but also helps to keep your eyes from straining, so you can work harder or play longer. The light feature is optional, the user can turn the bars on and off as per their preferences.

Audio

The desk comes handy with an audio switch located on the left hand side, which allows the user to quickly switch from using their headphones to a stereo sound system, without the need of unplugging or switching setting on their computer.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

With any projects there will be challenges, most of which we have already overcome. First where do we have this product made? Well we went back and forth with this one. In the end we decided that having it made in Canada is our best bet. It would be too hard to have proper quality control overseas and after a bit of research it was not recommended for the quantity. Plus having it made in Canada will allow us to make sure each and every desk is built properly and solid.

Second is logistics, shipping something the size of our product can be quite expensive. So after making about a million calls we found a company with an excellent reputation and was willing to give us a great price. So we can pass the savings on to you.

FAQ

  • Kickstarter only allows me to set shipping to US or international. Since shipping has to be included, I chose US only. However, I do offer free shipping to Canada.

    Last updated:
  • The desk will require some assembly: the legs need to be screwed in and the platform needs to be attached for the tower. After that, your're good to go!
