    Just what I needed...

    from NE Georgia

    I bought two of these desks for my kids' computers (we homeschool, and do quite a bit of their work on computer). The desks don't take up much floor space, and provide adequate space for the computer, accessories, and a small amount of other supplies like CD-ROMs or study materials. Don't plan on using an older monitor on these desks--they're not big enough. You absolutely need a flat-screen monitor. The height of the main portion of the desks is the same as the keyboard tray on my full-size desk, so the keyboard trays on these desks are a little low. Works great for kids, but might not be very comfortable for a taller adult. Both desks had minor damage to a couple of pieces, but nothing that interferes with their functionality. A black Sharpie covered up the small marks that were still visible after the desks were assembled. Assembly was pretty straightforward, except that you need a very strong hand to fully tighten the cam bolts. I need to get my husband to go back and tighten those for me. Overall, I'm very satisfied with these desks for my kids. The price was right for getting the two we needed, and I don't need to stress over the damage kids do to furniture that they use often. The desks are sturdy, and look nice in our office area.

    Good value for money

    from Dallas, TX – Verified Buyer

    Bought this desk for a small space almost 2 years ago and it has held up quite well to daily use. It has started showing signs of wear which I expected for the quality, so if you want something that will last for years, keep looking. Pros: Sleek and compact, looks as pictured, straightforward assembly, love the keyboard tray (fits my mouse as well). Cons: Storage is not really functional for me as I don't use a CPU tower and would have preferred a drawer rather than the cabinet (harder to reach for items pushed to the back).

    Beginnings Computer Desk

    from Charlotte, NC – Verified Buyer

    I really do like the desk. The only negative thing I can say is that I found some of the holes were not predrilled when I was constructing the desk. Actually cracked the floor of the area with the door because of that. It isn't readily noticable, so it's fine. Took a while to get it put together, but the instructions are very clear.

    great young student desk!

    from Chico, CA – Verified Buyer

    Good Sauder product. Basic desk, great for student. Nice medium walnut finish. Has pull out keyboard tray, shelf for computer tower, desktop space for a few items, and a small cupboard below for storing paper/books. Delivery was timely and assembly was required.

    perfect desk

    from Des Plaines, IL – Verified Buyer

    I got this desk for my husband: it's smaller, less bulky and modern he loves it and so do I. It took me a couple of hours with two toddlers constantly interrupting and a sore hand and wrist so i am sure it would take others less time. The instructions were pretty simple and easy to follow... Its totally worth it: looks great and good quality...

    Just the right size

    from Las Vegas, NV – Verified Buyer

    This desk is the absolute piece that I needed for my computer. The size is more than accommodating for my small apartment, it has features that allow you to keep the area clear and to add a decorative touch on top. I spend a lot of time at my desk, it was a good buy, did need help assembling it, took a little while.

    Works Fine

    from New York – Verified Buyer

    This isn't the very best quality, but it's working out ok. We have it in an area that doesn't get used much. So for our needs it's just fine. A little wobbly but it's holding up well so far.
