I store my handhelds and wireless controllers/chargers on my desk, not to mention the monitor, keyboard, and speakers for my desktop.

Right now, I have my monitor sitting on one of these:

It's flanked by two of these:

My desk is getting pretty cramped. There's room for everything without crazy stacking, but it's getting to the point that it's hard to retrieve something without moving two other devices. It'd be really nice if I had something with more shelf levels so I could spread self out a little bit more, but finding something that's free-standing that would fit on a desk has been tricky.

I'm considering getting a set of drawers or a filing cabinet for _under_ the desk, but that's probably not great for devices that have cords.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Seriously though, I don't like those h-shaped shelves, my wife uses a white one on her desk, they aren't very efficient in terms of space.

Let's see what your desk looks like now.

So you're using the monitor for the computer and console display?

Monitor is for the desktop, the mini consoles, and for capture card passthrough. The PS2 Slim is actually hooked up to the PSOne's screen.

Are those Razer speakers...with or without RGB? How are they?

Anyway, yea, there is no need to cram all those systems you own on your desk top.

Imagine how clutter free and clean your desk will look if you just hook up ONE system and switch them when you move on to another game/system.

The speakers are fine. I haven't really gotten a chance to exercise them (see above: baby) but they sound pretty crisp. The RGB is unimpressive. Full stop. It's so faint, I barely notice it.

Funny story, @Lunar ... Those speakers just died after less than three months and very, very little use. They have an automatic power off, so they probably spent only a few hours powered on, since we keep the apartment crazy quiet because of the baby. Razer's been surprisingly responsive so far (via Reddit, of all places) but I've heard stories about the Razer RMA process. We'll see.

An update on my desk... I picked up a set of drawers that fits under my desk's built-in drawers perfectly:
https://www.amazon.c...

It's been pretty awesome so far. The loose, non-rechargable controllers on my desk now have a home, and I was able to move my wired controllers (which were in a cabinet elsewhere) in the same place.

That leaves the rechargeable controllers. I'll have to do some size testing, but I have a BitLounger tray that might make a good home for them, since all but the Shield controller are rather slender.

Still trying to find a better/larger/more efficient set of desk shelves to decrampify everything.
