I had submitted an order for this desk after mourning over ****** ridiculous shipping rates for an assortment of desk parts I was planning on purchasing (shipping rates SHOULD NOT dwarf the product pricing. Seriously.) I was a bit skeptical of its L-shaped design at first; I wasn't really digging the lack of inner corner curved I was looking forward to in my previously mentioned DIY fail-**** purchase. Regardless, I decided that my nitpicking won't be getting me a spanking brand new desk any sooner, so I hit the "buy" button like my last lifeline. A week after placing the order, the package came in - in all its nearly 100lbs glory! It was well-package, and while I found the amount of styrofoam to be a complete hassle, at least it kept all the parts safe and sound. I was a bit weary of the inch-wide puncture holes that dotted the box itself, but the parts were safe and sound, thankfully. The smaller hardware (screws, allen wrench, intruction etc.) came in a box labeled "hardware," which was a really nice touch. I got tired of dealing with ziplock bags. Assembling the table itself is pretty easy, and the instructions were okay, albeit they could've been a bit clearer, especially for those not used to assembly. I ended up screwing the legs on the table first instead of doing it as suggested in the manual, so I had a bit of a problem attaching the supporting beam that goes across. So, pro-tip for beginners: do not tighten until all screws are fitting in and snug in the inserts, otherwise you're gonna be spending six minutes figuring out how to fit a 50" support beam in between two legs. One could also do without the smaller table, as the main one itself already looks quite good without it, but I decided to attach it anyway and make it my little homework hub since it just kind of works. In the end, I had assembled a fairly sturdy, high quality L-shaped desk that manages to look pretty darn snazzy in my medium-sized bedroom. I was a bit afraid that it wasn't going to hold my two monitors held up on mounts that would have to be clamped at the edge of the desk, but I was reassured once I struggled to get the main tabletop up to my room - thing is HEAVY, but sturdy as heck. The metal legs are appreciated, as well as the provided cable management in the form of two square-cutouts at the far corners. Would definitely buy another just for the sheer quality alone!
