Great value, sturdy workstation
 from Olympia, WA,  Oct 20, 2012

This product is exactly what I was looking for in a standing desk! Easy to assemble by myself in well under 30 minutes, including adjusting and leveling the height of the top desk surface. The dimensions on the website are very accurate. I have dual monitors and based on 29.5" width only had about half an inch of wiggle room to fit them both. Once I set them up...exactly half an inch to spare. The metal frame seems very solidly built and on wide feet so no noticeable wobble so far. I'm not worried about having those two monitors sitting so high off the ground thanks to the sturdiness of the unit. Aesthetically great as well! The cherry is a good shade, and the edges are well finished with an almost pin-striped look to them. A very high-quality and professional looking desk for the price. I would be happy to pay retail on this one, but Overstock drops it down to less-than-IKEA prices and this desk looks better and will out-perform anything that you could find in that particular store. The only downside is that the bottom two shelves are held on with an adhesive tape instead of screws. BIG design flaw in my mind, and the reason for 4 instead of 5 stars. Fortunately I don't actually need to put anything of value on either of those shelves, but I wouldn't trust it with a computer or heavy printer. The adhesive seems extremely strong, but will inevitably decrease in holding power with time. I also know myself, and will at some point forget and try to lift the desk by one of those shelves. Hopefully the adhesive holds so I don't shatter one of the casters, or my floor, or my foot! PROS: Nearly everything--value, professional/quality look, sturdy metal construction CONS: Adhesive shelves, keyboard tray is a bit stiff.
