The MAGNUS looks set to take Secretlab, a brand well known for its quality gaming chairs which can come with licensed designs that match your favorite games, TV shows, and streamers, into the realms of desk building and potentially beyond. This is a logical extension for the brand, and we look forward to seeing how it will measure up against the best gaming desks in the business, including those from Arozzi, Bizzoelife, and Omnidesk.

Features Of The Secretlab MAGNUS Metal Desk
The MAGNUS Metal Desk measures 59″(L) x 27.5″(W) x 29″(H) or 1500mm x 700mm x 735mm and comes with a maximum loads of 220lbs / 100kg on the main body of the desk. As the name would suggest, the desk is made from steel but also incorporates MDF. The desk, before you include accessories, weighs 92.6lbs / 42kg.
One of the key selling points of the desk is its overall ‘magnetic ecosystem’ which allows you to easily clip on all of the various accessories and the magnetic MAGPAD Desk Mat, which covers the entire desktop surface.
Most of the accessories for the desk are optional extras, which gives you greater options for customization and the potential to save money on components you do not need. Among the most interesting of these are the red magnetic cable anchors (for the table top) and the black magnetic cable sheaths (for the table legs), which can magnetically snap to the desk and to each other to keep your desk cabling as tidy as possible. The MAGRGB Diffused RGB Strip can also be fixed to anywhere under the desk to give a diffused ‘aurora-like glow’ and the lighting pattern and colors are controlled via a remote. The final accessory, the cable fastening straps, function exactly as you’d expect.
The MAGPAD Desk Mat comes in several variations: at present there is the Signature Stealth Edition with the classic red trim to match the design familiar from Secretlab’s chairs, there are also the more expensive Special Edition Cloud9 and Team Liquid designs, though we imagine these will be expanded upon in the future. Full prices of all of the above can be found below.
The rear of the desk features an ingeniously designed cable management tray which not only lets you tidy away all of your cables, but also has a forward hinging mechanism meaning you can place the back edge of the desk flush against the wall.
Last, but certainly not least, the desk comes with a 5 year warranty, which is definitely a welcome addition!
