Sinking Omnidesk ( 72" length )

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

I assume the electrical table frame has a horizontal base across...so it's almost impossible to bend the table top....

Share your photo lah! very hard for us to imagine what happened...
The tabletop shouldn't bend unless it's an ikea... that's what happen to my previous ikea... LoL

Got pictures?

Not sure but I think someone once told me that I was lucky I took 60in instead of 72 in because of warping issue.

But do send pictures, cause i am also mounting a belkin surge protector to the under side of the cable management tray.

Should be able to handle the weight though considering the management tray is held together by multiple screws across the back.

That's rubbish. The Belkin weighs around 300g or so, hardly enough to make a desk sag.

A table is used for putting things on. If weight is going to cause the table to warp, then itís an inferior product. No 2 ways around it. They might as well put in their disclaimer that you cannot put anything on the center of the table, whether above or under. They basically failed to strengthen the table where it matters. Itís like someone building a bridge telling you it warped because you are standing in the middle.
Boltstorm and Lil_d3viLz like this.

Aren't they selling overpriced OEM rebranded desks? Not their problem to strengthen table la... just like a certain gaming chair store

Chair peeling is not great, but you can still sit. Having a table warp is a fundamental problem when itís always expected to take weight. Itís akin to the chair breaking because you sat on it.

the problem is, why they didnt say my monitor being in the center is causing the sinking? instead they put the blame on a 300g belkin power extension...
