Simple SetupThe Magnus arrives in two boxes, and after unpacking every single part of it you might feel overwhelmed. It's a lot. Thankfully, Secretlab labels every piece of the desk, and the included assembly instructions are very clear. The whole thing took me about 30 minutes to put together. You might need to enlist a friend though as it weighs a whopping 93 pounds.The desk is 59 inches long, which is more than enough space to fit my PC, an ultrawide monitor, and a second vertical monitor, along with the usual desk accessories like speakers and the ever-essential Funko Pops and Amiibos . Secretlab rates its load capacity at a generous 221 pounds.

One of the key parts of this desk is the trench, as I call it. The rear part of the Magnus is separated from the main desktop. A slim panel that runs along the back of the desk folds upward to reveal a roomy cable management tray. This is where you can hide most of the wires that run from your PC to your peripherals. Under the desk, you can remove a magnetic cover to access these cables and route them to an outlet. Thanks to this, I didn't have to worry about a mess of wires dangling below the desk near my feet. All the cables are completely out of sight and out of mind.
