I bought this because of the reviews I had read and didn't wish to spend a fortune as I needed a desk that wouldn't break the bank as I work from home. Overall the finished quality of the desk is very good and especially for the price you pay. Although having said that I had so many problems with assembling it; not all the holes were properly lined (my partner had to make a couple of new ones to say it was a nightmare would be an under statement). Also the "cupboard" is not actually a proper cupboard as it has a big hole in the back (had I known this I would have bought a different desk as it was not what I wished). I have an all in one printer, fax & scanner so it does not leave a lot of room on the top of the desk (I am now going to have to buy a separate desk cupboard).
