I bought this 60x30" desk "shell" because it has a large surface for not just my computer but also paperwork and lunch and other stuff, and it has plenty of room underneath without any drawers in the way, and it looks good. So far it seems to have a good quality desktop surface. It comes flat packed, protected by thick corrugation and thin foam, with the most important surfaces facing inwards -- so it arrived without any damage. It assembled without any problems (there was one bolt with a malformed head, but since they gave me one extra of each hardware item, this problem did not affect assembly). Just be sure to follow the assembly directions closely so you don't stick any hardware in the wrong hole. The modesty support panel is recessed 6 inches and is raised 7 inches from the floor, so there is enough room to push the desk against a wall while still accessing any electrical outlets behind it.
