Not bad for the price you pay
 from Washington, DC,  Apr 26, 2011

This is a basic desktop computer desk which looks quite nice and is rather solid. However, there are few things designed in a wrong way. First, there is no help with wire organizing, no hole for the wires, no guide to slide the wires in. Second, the main PC block is placed on a panel underneath as shown in the picture. The problem is that the panel is too short and my case did not fit in well. The rear panel is too low and I could not fit it in with the power cord plugged. So, I had to drill a hole in the rear panel to fit the power cord. Third, they should have put the printer stand on the left side, not on the right side. Otherwise, it is quite uncomfortable to sit because the case underneath the desk does not allow to stretch the legs and the printer stand does not allow the monitor to be moved a bit to the left from the center. This is however probably true only for 20+ inch monitor, smaller monitor should be fine. Fourth, the keyboard support slides in and out smoothly but there is not enough room for the mouse, especially considering the emblem logo which should have been made flat at the very least. Also, the slider is too oily, got all the stuff touching it oily as well. Fifth, the printer stand is too small for a laser printer, even the smallest one with lying paper tray. Inkjet or standing paper tray printers are probably OK. Sixth, quality of the material is somewhat on a cheap side. I think for that kind of price, it could have been better. On the bright side, assembly was easy (about 3 hours but I was not in a hurry), the desk looks good, it is solid and does not shake, there is room for a power supply and router/modem. Packaging and delivery very fine as well. I think, you get what you pay for. It is not the cheapest item but it is not overpriced as well. All in all, I'm quite happy with it.
