We were looking to update our computer table, but we were having a hard time finding everything we wanted in one unit until we saw this online. It was shipped in two boxes. When we received the first box, we were not sure what to think. A day or two later the second box arrived. Everything was intact. The pieces were clearly marked, and the directions were complete. We took another reviewer's idea and switched the two sides. Even then, it went together quickly. I really like the elevated corner shelf for the monitor and the separate cart for the PC tower. It is a versatile desk with plenty of space to work. It was well worth the price!!
I luv it so much that I now have 2. I bought the first one about 1-1/2 years ago to work from home. And because it works so well for what I need it for, I bought another one for my personal computer. I have my small TV on the little corner shelf and the VCR underneath.
It probably took my husband and I a few hours to put it together but we went slow and were deliberate with the directions. And we set it up opposite from what the photos shows -- it is possible!
I like a lot of horizontal space to spread out my work, craft supplies, etc. and don't need a hutch with little cubbyholes which can be useless for me. And I have a place to put all my little Christmas decorations this season! and they are all right next to me for up-close viewing.
Thanks so much for reading my review. And if you decide that this is a desk for you, I think you'll be very satisfied with it.
