Intimidating when it came in the box so I didn't put it together for week. But once I got it unwrapped it wasn't hard at all. The only thing I had issues with was tightening the screws so I got someone with a stronger grip to just go over it after I put together. Before I got this I had a cardboard box on my desk. As I researched the internet the prices were way out of my budget. But I bumped into this one and I LOVE IT! Plenty of room for my huge screen that I have on one side so I have plenty of space for paperwork. I have a large keyboard, and it too fits fine. Not sure if I want my mounse on the top level yet or down by my keyboard but either way it works. I have no complaints. And I would definitely recommend this product.
