I needed a no nonsense desk, small, just for a stand alone computer. The desk was easy to put together. The only little minor thing was the pullout shelf. If I wanted to use a mouse on it, the amount of room there was with the shelf fully pulled out wasn't really enough to move the mouse around. I could imagine hitting my fingers or knuckles in case of aggressive gaming. So I made new holes and had the shelf sticking out a bit more. So yes, this means the shelf sticks out when it is in closed position, but not too much, and when pulled out it gave me enough room to feel secure in moving the mouse around. It looks like it is sturdy enough to stand in my office for a long time to come.
I bought 3 of these over the years. My youngest son's original desk had all the ballbearings on the sliding keyboard tray fall out very early on, which made for sliding the tray very difficult. He also ripped part of the black laminate off the bottom shelf from constant wear and tear of his sneakers and moving the computer tower a lot. Basically, it looked as if my son ate his desk, but his desk still looked better than his computer chair did. We never had any problems with the desk's stability. Other than the tray, the rest of the desk held up just fine and it didn't wobble or slide around on the uncarpeted floor. Oldest son's desk never had any problem in 3+ years he has it in use (still in use today). It must have been an isolated issue, because the replacement desk I bought has been perfect so far and his desk habits have not changed at all. Perfect size, great price and really not bad quality. It's very easy to set up. I would buy this desk again if needed.
This desk was an excellent purchase. It is sturdy and easy to use. I took it to work and use it as my personal desk. All my peers are jealous and want one. It has been instrumental in alleviating my sciatica and now I stand most of the day and feel healthier and more active. I highly recommend this product for anyone who must sit at their desks all day for their work. It will change your life.
