This desk well exceeded my expectations. It is sturdy, looks great and is nice and neat. I replaced a huge work station with this desk and I am thrilled. The price is wonderful - it looks like it cost twice the price. Getting it together was a bit difficult. Lots of screws and stuff. There were a few screws could not be reached with a regular screwdriver - powered or not. It is worth the extra effort because it is so sturdy in the end.
