How stable are IKEA trestle legs?

About to build a new desk for my cousin similar to mine. Currently I have a solid core door (80x32) + 5 OLOV adjustable legs. While mines okay and isn't noticeable while gaming by myself, it is unstable and can wobble, especially if another person is on it. I've been told trestle legs should provide more stability.

Does anyone use trestle legs?

These are the ones I'm looking at:
