I know that at this price the pieces are always made up of particle board and fake wood but being that the material is thicker at the top, as well as, the sides it really does hold up nicely. The thickness of the top and side pieces are a good 1 and 1/2 inches, so it does not wobble and seams sturdy. Obviously, you cannot get the "fake wood" wet or its going to start to peel or wear away, so I would reccommend a coaster if a drink is near by. However, if its just for a home office which is only used a couple hours a day or less it should be fine. It does really look nice bc the dark color makes it seem "richer". I would also reccommend getting the 2 other pieces that match it as well. One piece holds the tower and has 2 extra drawers for small items such as your checkbook, stamps or envelopes and the other piece has 3 drawers 2 of which are the same size and 1 being a little larger being able to act as a filing cabinet. They also look good placed on each end of this desk. It makes it look more complete. Plus, gives more starage space. Also the desk is also a nice size. You can have the monitor on top of the desk, as well as, ample amount of room to work on a project or write. I would reccommend this desk for the price and this site by far is the cheapest and believe me, I shop around.
