Needed a "value" piece for my studio. something that is neutral and functional. It hits all three points. I'm nesting this with the End Table for extra storage and surface space, when needed. I'm not entirely confident how long it will hold up under constant regular usage. The legs don't fit properly to the top brackets. There's a reason its a value.
Because I read the reviews before purchasing I knew what to expect. Overall I am happy with the desk. It is a good size and the pattern is nice. The corner of the desktop was damaged but it would have been too much of a hassle to return it so I am going to deal with it, its not too bad.
