    I imagine those desk dimensions are supposed to be in centimeters instead of millimeters.

    "I cannot (help but) have a sense that there was something else that could be done" Missing a couple words in there.

    The desk, however, sounds cool. Doesn't look like the legs are adjustable height, right? That would be useful, especially if it could be turned into a "stand up" desk.

    1250mm = 125cm = 1.25m.
    1250cm = 12.5m.
    I'm sure a 12.5m desk would be a little unwieldy.

    The legs can adjust by 3cm. Not much, but enough if you are on an uneven floor.

    Surprised there's no mention of Lian Li's previous desk reviewed on the site (http://www.anandtech.com/show/1750). Reply

    I'm not. If I had a review that didn't show the product as a whole until the 8th page, I'd want to dump it down the memory hole too. Reply

    So if I'm looking at this right you'd need more than one person to slide the computer back into the desk unless you disconnect the monitors first lest the cords coil and kink between the backplate and the sliding section. Or is there some kind of feed mechanism that prevents that? Reply

    I was wondering about that but I would guess you just need to leave some slack. Reply

    I suspect there is some empty space behind the drawer and the back of the desk when the drawer is closed. That would be needed if only for cable strain relief. Reply

    Seems like a good Test Bench for future Anandtech reviews *wink wink* Reply

    All I see when I look at this product is a test bench, lol. I pretty goddamn cool one. If I did a lot of builds, or repairs, or reviews, I'd be super into this. Reply

    Any mention about how loud it would be with 8 fans spinning relatively close to your ears? Reply

    Shouldn't be too bad, if you're smart about your fan choices. Guessing those are 120mm fans, you can get some 60odd CFM at under 16db. Reply

    Where the hell do I put my mouse with all those cables in my way. The mouse/keyboard area is entirely too cramped. Reply

    An extension of that is that the working surface is blocked by the mouse/keyboard area. How do you write if the desk area is a foot away from you? Reply
