Eureka Z60 Gaming Desk Review

Every once in a while, a company tries to take something old and make it new again. That is what Eureka has done with their Z60 Gaming Desk. It’s simple to take a desktop, add some legs, and call it a full desk, but it’s another thing to bring in a durable steel frame and desk, wrap it in carbon fiber, and then make it pop with RGB. If you’re a gamer looking for an eye-catching desk, this might just be the one for you. Join us to find out.

Specifications

  • Cost: $341.99 USD (Available at SitLess Web Store)
  • Dimensions: 60 IN (W) x 23.82 IN (L) x 30.91 IN (H)
  • Weight: 55.12 LBS
  • Lighting Effects: RGB (6 Colors, 2 Modes)
  • Materials: Steel + Particle Board + ABS Plastic
  • Accessories: Mouse Pad

Durable and Sturdy

The Z60 is comprised of a steel frame with several locking parts that make the desk very sturdy when under weight. The main piece of the desk is made of dense MDF, which has been covered in a carbon fiber finish to make it look stylish and sleek. It has already taken a beating from my children and I who sometimes eat at the desk, with no marks whatsoever. The desk is also trimmed with stylized ABS plastic elements to pull off its gamer aesthetic, but also works to protect the edges from dings and scratches.

A Different Kind of Desk Lighting

When you think off desk lighting, the first thing that comes to mind is a desk lamp. The Z60 takes another angle by integrating dynamic RGB lighting. On each side of the desk, there are two plastic pieces that are screwed into place with the RGB wiring harness fitted through a small opening on the desktop. The wiring is managed along the bottom of the desk with some plastic strips adhered with 3M to keep things neat and tidy.

That said, this isn’t the most customizable desk in the world. You’re limited to six basic colors and two different breathing modes. Activating the RGB is as simple as the touch of a button. The button is on the right-hand side of the desk. You can push to cycle through the different modes or turn it on or off by holding the button. It doesn’t require its own outlet, though, and is instead powered through USB, which is nice.

An Assembler’s Tale

Putting the Z60 together was easy overall. All of the screws and attachment pieces were neatly separated into different bags including an Allen key for the screws. Eureka also included a magnetized screwdriver for attaching the plastic RGB pieces to the top of the desk. This will definitely be a tool to hold onto for future DIY projects.

Once you have everything laid out, it’s quickly apparent where everything fits into place making assembly very intuitive. The instruction manual is only a couple of pages long and comes with ten simple steps to putting the desk together. Given its size, it took me about twenty minutes to put together which isn’t too bad at all for a full assembly. Just take care that the legs are oriented correctly.

With everything assembled, I am actually quite impressed with the desk. It’s big and sturdy and, though I was worried about the aesthetic at first, it actually looks pretty cool in a gaming setup such as mine. In the dark, the lights also look pretty cool even if the selection is a bit more limited than I would like. I do wish Eureka included some of the accessories featured in the pictures on their product page to really make this a “gaming” desk. It might seem small, but including elements like a headphone hanger and cup holder really would help add some extra utility to the Z60.

Final Thoughts

Looking for a new desk can be challenging. You need to make sure you have a desk that is sturdy and strong, that it will hold enough weight for your system, and that it will fit in your living space all without costing an exorbitant amount of money. This desk meets all of those requirements and is a good option for someone just starting out or a gamer setting up their streaming area. The Eureka Z60 Gaming Desk is a good choice for anyone who has a like mind with its unique style.

Pros

  • Sturdy and strong
  • Open area for your PC equipment
  • Easy to use RGB lighting

Cons

  • Pricey
  • Accessories, like headphone hanger, sold separately
