I researched computer desks for a while because I have limited space in my new smaller scaled loft. This desk fit the bill! It is very sleek looking and quite sturdy! The glass desk top is very thick and durable. The glass and metal gives it a more classier and modern feel than your standard computer desk. The desk top itself is quite roomy with enough room for a plant as well as a table lamp without it looking crowded or cluttered. Plus, I love the frosted look of the glass--it's opaque enough to not see directly through, yet clear enough at the same time! It took me about two hours to put this desk together---by myself! The instructions were very understandable and clear to follow, but it would have taken a lot less time if I had some assistance. Plus, I took my time to insure that everything was attached properly.
The glass desk top is VERY heavy, so I had to get creative when it came time for me to secure it on top of the silver legs and those silver oval things (parts no. 8). I attached opposite corner ends first in order to keep it stable, and to keep those oval pieces from falling off. I also had to hold the screwdriver in my mouth while doing so, in order to slightly tightened each corner. It was touch and go for a moment, but it all worked out in the end! Another feature that I love is that it has a locking mechanism on the two front wheels, so just in case you're using this desk on a hardwood or laminate floor, it won't roll all over the place. I'm using it on a rug and my plastic mat so I didn't have to bother locking it. My only complaint is that the holes in the right slider to hold the keyboard tray (part 12) did not line up properly, so I just didn't bother with putting the keyboard tray on. I'll be using this for my laptop, so a keyboard tray would have been useless anyway. Nonetheless, the desk still looks very good without it! I'll probably contact the TechniMobile folks to request another right slider in a day or so, because I could use the keyboard tray to hold random office trinkets, but it's not all that important at this moment.
Anyway...great looking desk! A nice change from the standard looking wood Sauder-type computer desks.
This is probably one of my best buys from Walmart-- ever! *oh yes, let me include that shipping was extremely fast! It arrived at my home in less than a week from when I ordered it---well in advance from the estimated delivery date.
Thanks Walmart for a great product and fast delivery!
