Great for the price from Fredericksburg, VA on 09/03/2015 – Verified Buyer
I only had the desk for about a week and so far is very sturdy (no violent shakes when printing). Fairly easy to assemble, it only took about an hour. Everything fits just as the pic shows.

Just what I needed... from NE Georgia on 06/06/2011
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.

Very happy with this desk! from Virginia on 08/18/2015 – Verified Buyer
This desk arrived in great condition with no blemishes or flaws from shipping. It was packed with extra cardboard at the corners to avoid chipping during the shipping process. Easy to put together, got it in a beautiful dark cherry color. Love the open shelf for the computer tower so it doesn't overheat. Keyboard tray slides smoothly. Great price for the functionality. It's a bit on the smaller side, but comfortably fits a computer and printer. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Really like my desk! from Rochchester, MN on 09/07/2015 – Verified Buyer
Very nice product for the money. Exactly like the picture and description says it is. Looks very nice in my bedroom . The only place I could put it in my small senior apt.. My printer/fax machine fits nicely on the shelf. Use the bottom area to keep my printer paper and odds and ends. I am very satisfied with my purchase.

Pros: Grand-son said it went together nicely.It didn't take him very long. Good instruction.
Cons: Not real sturdy for a young child,

nice looking desk - looks like the photo from Hillsboro, MO on 12/21/2015 – Verified Buyer
however, the shelf shown holding the computer hard drive arrived with a small crushed section on the edge (looks like the marking of a hammer strike).
Husband went ahead and finished assembling as it was too much trouble to take apart, repack and return. Desk is placed next to a wall so the defect is not noticeable.

Pros: good value; easy to assemble.
Cons: item damaged. Also would have like if it came in "white".

Great Purchase! from Monroe Twp, NJ on 08/04/2015 – Verified Buyer
The top shelf was not big enough for my printer, but for the price - who cares. It works for what I needed it for; something affordable and temporary. Seems sturdy, easy to assemble, and gets the job done.

Looks very nice from Dubuque, IA on 11/16/2015 – Verified Buyer
I just got this and was pleased when I unpacked it. The material seems like it will stand up to some use. There was quite a lot of assembly, but for once, all the pieces were there, and the instructions were easy to follow. I expect it will serve my purpose well.

Pros: Price for the quality
Cons: A fair amount of assembly

great young student desk! from Chico, CA on 03/05/2015 – 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.

Great Starter Desk! from Sebastian, FL on 12/09/2015 – Verified Buyer
I used this desk for 2 to 3 years and I am now giving it to my son as I have upgraded my desk. He is a college student and this will be perfect for him. Nice and compact.

Pros: Great for small space
Cons: finish wears off if you don't use a mouse pad
