compact, sturdy, good value
 from Massachusetts,  Jan 14, 2013

Very sturdy, compact desk. Large work surface when open, stable and solid even when you lean on it, and surprising amount of storage in desk top (I put small baskets for frequently used items, kept drawer for extra supplies since you can't easily access that when lid is open). I put it behind my couch like a sofa table, so I can open and do bills while I watch TV-- it's a little deep (18") for that, but the narrower top makes it look less so. Work surface is fairly high-- I actually sawed off about 2.5 inches from each leg (detached them first) to make total height the same as my low couch back, and to lower the work surface to a better laptop typing height with the chair I'm using (test it out *with chair* you'll use before cutting!) Super easy assembly, just attach the legs (hex key supplied), desk part and slant lid come pre-assembled. I did have a slight misalignment in the folding top, where there are rubber nubs and slots in the slant top lid on each side that the nubs fit into when you fold it up. It was operational (nothing I would have returned it for), but made the seams uneven when pressed closed snugly. That slight aesthetic issue bugged me (most people wouldn't notice), so I solved by cutting the slot a little larger myself, so it looks perfect when closed now
