Not at all bad. This riser is somewhat larger and better built than I was anticipating from the pictures; the plastics are pretty solid and reasonably scratch-resistant, the height-adjustable feet have at least some metal in them, and it seems to isolate vibrations from the keyboard & elsewhere quite well. The cup and CD holders are nice features to have, and I imagine many people will be pleased with them, although they're a little too close to the monitor for my own taste; I prefer things to be out of my eyeline, or too near it. The drawer is textured internally for pens, & A4 paper (just) fits in. The aforementioned drawer is perhaps a little flimsy, but so long as you're not planning to store anything particularly heavy in it, that shouldn't be an issue. There's also space under it to tuck a keyboard or a slim laptop if required. If you need a monitor riser, or think you would benefit from one, then this is a good bet.
