Got mine today, easy assembly. 66 in. X 56 in (the "L" Shape) X 29.5 in (Height) are the "real" useful dimensions. Fits well with my little study (108 sq ft, square shaped). If you have a desktop, the caddy can hold your CPU. However, as a laptop user, I would prefer a matching cabin with two or three drawers instead of the caddy.
This desk is replacing a desk that I built ten years ago (2000) out of particle board and 2x4s. That desk is still in great condition, but it looks exactly like a desk that was built out of 2x4s and particle board. I bought the L-shaped desk from Overstock for $****USD (shipped!) and couldn't be happier. It looks nice, has a lot of space and supports everything I needed and wanted out of a new desk.
I have a 25" widescreen monitor sitting next to a 15.6" laptop. To the right of that I have my computer speakers sitting on the raised platform and surrounded by random electronics (camera, lens, psp, mp3 player, etc...) Continuing on the L, I have a stack of papers, a desk organizer, CDs and a drink :) There is still plenty of room to work on the desk. From the dimensions, the desk seems thin, and it is. However, it makes up for itself with the L-shape which gives you that sprawling feeling I mentioned in the sentences above.
It took my wife and I about an hour to piece together my desk. After I had it setup, she commented on how she disliked her setup. The next afternoon she mention that she bought herself one, and at $250 after shipping, who wouldn't! As you can tell, we like the desk.
- easy to setup
- nice clean design
- contemporary dark cherry wood and silver color
- companion tray for desktop (or subwoofer for speakers)
- lots of room for your stuff
- can't sustain too much weight
- probably not too resilient to scratches
- keyboard slider is a bit shallow (depth)
Read numerous reviews before purchasing this desk. Total time to assemble was about right (2 hours with one person taking their time.) Desk is sturdy and large enough for most people to do both daily and work tasks easily (Which is why I bought mine). One thing that I should have expected from one review is also correct. I am a smoker, and 3 days after assembling this desk an ash landed on the top and burned/melted a small part of it. It is a vinyl type wood veneer so be aware of that if you smoke. Other than that it is an excellent desk and I am happy to have it. Would buy again for the price it is hard to match. The mobile CPU stand is also nice and a bonus as you can put it anywhere you like.
I needed a desk that had a fairly descent amount of room; I have a 32" monitor. This desk is a great size and doesn't look or feel cheap. It is substantial in weight, but not too heavy and although it isn't "real wood" it looks pretty good. I say that meaning it's covering is veneer and not an actual stained wood.This went together really quickly. It took me 2.3 hours, but that was only because I was using the tools (screw driver and wrench) that came with it. Every piece is actually screwed together and not just a little wood knob slipped into a hole like cheaper "put together yourself" desks. Someone who has an electric screwdriver could easily put this together in an hour.Again, this amount of desk for the price is a great value.
This desk is very good looking, sturdy, and not hard to put together. BUT, I definately HIGHLY recommend that you have an electric screw driver--this thing has about 100 screws!! If you have patience, follow the directions closely, you will end up with a terrific desk that has ample workspace! I did not attach the keyboard tray (I hate them, always knocking my knees on them) so I saved myself quite a few steps...
The desk came in with a small dent in the corner as it wasn't properly packed. This was due to mishandling during shipment. The dent was small enough that it is not worthwhile to return it. It is a blemish none the less. Other than that, we are happy with the construction and quality of the desk. In addition, they provided spare nuts and bolts which was very nice.
When you notice that the shipping containers weigh a great deal, that's a sign that the wood inside is high density and strong. Similarly, the aluminum and steel tubing is engineered for carrying its load well. Notice also that there are not side panels beside where the user is sitting: this is so that when a typist swivels around to get up or change tasks, she or he does not bang knees. This is how a truly functional computer desk is designed.
The directions were very clear and easy. However, there are a couple of pieces where "left" and "top" are indistinguishable from their opposites in the instructions and on the piece. One must be VERY careful to put the edge mounts in on the proper sides. (Obvious in hindsight, but in hindsight most things are.)
The product was exactly as pictured. The only thing that was somewhat disappointing was the plastic feet that are applied to each leg. They were slightly flimsy and the nut that screws them on was hard to get at with the little wrench provide with the desk. I got them screwed down by popping them of first and then popping them back on. Overall, it is a great desk computer desk with a lot of room. This purchase was for my son's new computer and I am thinking about buying another one for the home office. I might also note that it ships in two packages that might not arrive on the same day.
Absolutely love this desk. I have purchased 2 of them. My husband is skilled so putting them together was about an hour each. Even if you're not handy, the direction are very clear.
I use 2 monitors and the raised part works perfectly for my 22" monitor.

Great desk. I have it in my basement office and it's perfect. I like the fact that the short L part of the desk is short because it fits really well in my corner. The roll out tower accessory is really handy. Desk is very sturdy and pretty easy to assemble. Would definitely recommend.

Hello happy1purchase, yes this can be installed on the other side. Thank you for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on May 9, 2013
Not without modifying that desk. The small desk has pre-drilled screw holes that allow it to be mounted on either side of it, but the long desk has none. Being able to mount the keyboard on either side of the small desk is done because you can reverse how the desks are connected. In other words, the little desk can be installed on the right or left of the corner piece.wisetexan on Jul 22, 2013
Looking at this desk when assembled, is the longer side the left or the right?flvrgirl on Apr 19, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Multifunctional ergonomic L-shaped computer workstation is ideal for your study or office and doesn't need the corner piece for the rest to stand up.

Both desks will stand up by themselves, but they have rounded corners on one side. Without the corner piece, there will be one side of the desk with a perfectly straight edge.wisetexan on Jul 22, 2013
Is it possible to purchase a stand alone desk of this kind (instead of the two)? Ideally, the one of the left with the keyboard tray?cheedella on Dec 19, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Yes, they are interchangeable, but the instructions only briefly mention this. You will have think about how you are assembling the pieces, but the system is already pre-drilled to allow this possibility.wisetexan on Jul 22, 2013
