I ordered this desk because I wanted something that served as a nightstand and a laptop desk. It works great. The deep middle drawer is perfect for storing everything in. The desk is at the perfect height to put near a bed too. If you do use this desk, please note that most adjustable chairs will not fit nicely under it...you're better off sticking with a static chair. Assembly was a breeze. All I needed was an hour and a screwdriver. For the value, it was just what I wanted. It doesn't take up much space and serves a double function for me. This would be great for someone that needs a writing/typing surface in a family room or hallway.
