Great desk

from New Orleans, LA – Verified Buyer

I really like this desk but there are some drawbacks to how it looks in the picture. I'm a smaller person so this desk is a great size for me personally. Very easy to assemble, easy instructions, love the look. The one problem I had was that the actual face of the desk (the map) is not very see through and has more of a green tint. I still love it though & would buy again! Pros: Great value, easy assembly, I know way more about geography than before just by staring at it every day. Cons: On the small side which would be bad for bigger people, actual map part is not as see through as I would have liked (tinted a blue/green)

Great Grad Gift

from Illinois – Verified Buyer

I would defiantly recommend this desk, such a great price for a great product. I saw the same desk at a local well known furniture store for twice the price. This was bought as a gift for an eight grade grad but would be nice for an adult as well.

World Map Computer desk

from California – Verified Buyer

The desk is very nice. It was easy to assemble and is very sturdy. I was thinking that the world map would be more of an etching, but it is actually printed on there with an overlay of glass. It still nice though and serves it's purpose.

Nice desk

from Chicago, IL – Verified Buyer

I love world maps so this was perfect for my office. However, the glass top is mostly black and white, not gray and white, which is how it appeared to me from the website pics.

from Apopka, FL – Verified Buyer

Great design, solid construction, and the map is just fun. I like that it is so "open." It barely takes up any visual space. GET IT!

Its a solid 4!

from Nevada – Verified Buyer

I have to say this is a very nice desk. There were a couple little blemishes on the design where the silkscreen had rubbed off a little, but it really wasn't a big deal. It went together very easily. It's a good piece of furniture for the money.
