    Just what I needed...

    Homeschooling Mom of 4 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

    S 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

    Debbie 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.

    Just the right size

    Dwayne 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.

    Great Desk

    Derek from Succasunna, NJ

    Very sturdy and functional desk. It has a very sleek design to it. The only issue I had was with my wide screen monitor - it didn't fit on the desk as well as i would have hoped.

    Works Fine

    D 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.

    Handsome desk,prompt delivery.

    Gregory from milwaukee, WI– Verified Buyer

    I'm very happy with my new computer desk. It's functional and the perfect size if you have limited space. My printer even fit perfectly on the upper right shelf. The assembly takes a little time but isn't complicated if you follow the directions. The only problem was with the rails for the keyboard shelf. The shelf seems a little narrow causing the shelf to derail. This was easily fixed by slightly bending the rails on the casement allowing the keyboard shelf to maintain contact with the rails.
