I have the same desk as you.

The middle also sinking.

I noticed this week when I saw the leg slanted and bend toward the center.

Let me submit a request and see what is their reply.

Ya too bad karlby + Alex no longer sold in ikea










Karlby + Alex drawers, probably doesn't even cost as much as this junk desk that cannot put anything in the middle...unless you really need height adjusting gimmick

That karlby + Alex ... The table seems to be slightly bent/sag in the middle.

Anyway tends to happen to table over time without a under support(brace, box, extra legs, etc) especially if you have a habit of lending in with your arms. Can DIY like the following to make it last longer.

Been using the table for awhile and recently notice that my speaker isn't standing straight so I'm curious and use a level guide to see. It turns out the table indeed in sinking in the centre portion.

Msg Omni desk support, and they requested me to send them some photo of my setup and did their guys install the screw and properly anot. So i email them all the photo for them to investigate.

Just today, i receive their reply and it surprise me that they are pointing to me that because i mount my Belkin surge protector ( 4ways ) under their desk near the center of the desk, causing their table to sink in the centre..

I'm not a table expert, but their reply sure to enlighten me in someway, anyone facing this similar issue with their desk?

To me, a dual monitor mount mounted in the center of the desk is more heavy than my belkin power extension

The manager said his team mishandle this case?Looks like his team doesnt have common sense. how can a 300g power bar warp the desk? Ok la i give it 2kg with all the socket filled up. if it cant handle that 2kg weight.. idk what to said haha

Omnidesk support handle my case well and had extended a one-time goodwill replacement of my Black MDF tabletop for me.

Beside that, they also help to rectify any error in the assembly of the desk frame and also the cable management bar.

Seem that the sagging of the desk is due to error in the assembly of the desk frame.

After the replacement, the desk is sturdy right now.

If the desk frame really sturdy, I will definitely support Omnidesk in the future.

you used the word "goodwill", so was your sagging issue not covered under warranty?

i think dont buy the one that is too wide to prevent this issue.. because middle support is weak only held by the center frame underneath. For a wide table there should be more point of support

** LATEST UPDATES **

Their operating manager calls me & emails me explaining that his team mishandles the whole saga, saying a 300g power bar won't cause anything to their desk and they already arrange a full re-placement of their latest static model for me to try and observe..

Hope everything is fine for now...
Good news!
