If you are considering this desk you have to accept that it's a ~$100 desk. It looks stylish and we've had it for about a week now. The desk arrived very neatly packed, however, we were missing 4 bolts and one of the glass tops had a small scratch (the glass tops are tempered which is good to know). The website for Altra Furniture is unwieldly and submitting a request for missing parts via their website is impossible. Also, I tried calling their customer service once but had to hang up after being on hold for 20 minutes. Once I finally got through to them they quickly took note of the missing and damaged parts and sent replacements promptly with no fuss whatsoever. Big plus in my book for that.
The desk is not deep at all. Note the dimensions. Also each desk can take a maximum of 60 lbs and the bridge piece 30 lbs.
I'm happy with this desk. We're outfitting a new home office and it looks great it in. I'm typing up this review on my laptop on it. It shakes slightly as a I type.
All in all great value for what we paid. My wife, who criticizes my taste in furniture & that I prefer what is cheap vs what is attractive noted how nice the desk looked as well.
I was interested in getting a new desk for a computer that I was building. I've seen a couple of other similar glass/metal desks on Overstock, but this one is a massively great value for $***.
When it arrived (pretty fast shipping too: three or four days delivery!), It was in good condition and nothing on the outside box was dented. I opened it up and took the pieces out, and everything was in perfect shape. Altra took the time to bubblewrap all the rods and encase the glass pieces in styrofoam, cardboard, and bubblewrap, great enhancing the safety factor. I took a few days to build it, but that was my fault, and this can be done in a few hours. The rods are named with letters as to point out which one faces which way, etc., a very helpful tool. The build itself was quite easy and pretty fun. Just be sure that if you build it away from its destination that you make sure you can carry it into; I had to take it apart a bit to carry it into a room.
I've had the desk for about two weeks and it has been splendid. Things look nice on it, it fits into a corner of my room perfectly, and it feels very solid. the design is simple, but it's quite striking, really.
There are a few cons though, but nothing out of the ordinary. The biggest problem I have with it is that it is a big fingerprint attracter. It's not too horrible, just clean it once a week or so and it should be fine. Glass desks in general attract fingerprints, but its a con for all glass desks in general, not just this one.
In conclusion, I really like this desk and would suggest it in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a glass/metal desk. If you're using it for a computer, you can take out the curved rod in the corner of the desk to store your tower, and if you're not, it's still a great desk for anything else. Great value, and I am very pleased with the desk so far. Let's see how it fares for the next few years.
