Fredrik or Jonas

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey all. I am in the market for a new desk and need something sturdy to support dual monitors and my sig rig. I would really like it to not shake at all if I do very fast spins with my mouse like my current desk because that is required for one of the rhythm games I play alot.

I have narrowed it down to the IKEA Jonas and Fredrik and would like to hear any other suggestions people have to offer. I decided not to go with a Galant because of the measurements of the different models. The measurements of the Jonas/Fredrik would be more ideal.

Fredrik: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/40111124

Thanks. rolleyes.gif

I have a desk very similar to the Jonas, doesn't wobble under the hardest play but will if you attach a wheel to it. Going to be replacing it after 5 years or so.

Go with the Fredrik IMO.

I bought the Jonas from Ikea Canton about a week ago! I LOVE IT! I'd post pictures, but I'm not in the same location as the desk for another week.

Ahah. That is the thing I am worried about is that the Fredrik may wobble. I usually have to hit around 300 spins per minute (thank god it is only in bursts) and with my current everything starts wobbling, even my monitor if I start tapping keys with a tiny bit of force. sad-smiley-002.gif

Any other brands other than IKEA that have similar items at a reasonable price?

I found this bad boy http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/S89865536

and I think this would be my best bet considering where I want to put it. I like the legs on the right so it wont cover up the vent on the floor as I will be pushing this against the wall. Anyone else own any of these IKEA Vikas or want to provide some insight?
