Sturdy and good quality
The best quality Keyboard Tray I have come across. Easy to assemble and I suspect it will last a long time

Excellent accessory for the desk
The keyboard tray was out of stock when I ordered the Abacus desk, so it arrived separately after the desk was built. It was a straightforward operation to assemble and fit in place, although I had to lie on my back with a big cushion in order to screw the assembled tray into position! It would have been a lot easier if the tray was available while I was building the desk.
The build quality is excellent, and the tray moves smoothly and quietly. It also makes the desk look tidier, as well as freeing up desktop space on which to write notes.
I felt that the price was a bit steep, however the end result is very satisfactory.

GOOD ADDITIONAL PRODUCT
If you want a good keyboard tray to match the desks in the Abacus range then this is a good choice. It fits on the corner desk as well as the conventional desks and I only found this out when I read another customer's review (so it may be a good idea for John Lewis to point this out on their Abacus furniture leaflet). The tray is sturdy and provided you follow the instructions is easy to assemble on to the desk itself.

Essential part of the desk
I haven't used a pull out keyboard shelf before, but it is amazing and gives me so much more space on the desk for all my papers.
Some reviews suggested attaching this earlier than the instructions recommend, my husband agreed with this!
I was worried that a pull out shelf wouldn't be big enough to work at comfortably, or sturdy enough.
It is wide enough for my keyboard and mouse and feels very robust.

Usefull keyboard tray
Acurately machined with jointing and runner systems aligning perfectly resulting in excellent rigidity and a stable unit.
The oak veener was of good quality wood and well applied enhancing the overall quality.
Buyers should note that the keyboard tray is compatiable with both the corner desk and rectangular desk, mounting holes for the brackets being clearly marked on the underside of the desk top.
Instructions were well written and easy to follow.
I am very pleased with this unit which hs proven a very usefull addition to my office

A useful addition to this desk
This is well made, runs easily and is very useful for freeing up desk space and keeping the keyboard tidy and out of the way when not in use.
It really needs to be fitted to the underside of the desk during construction. This is easy to do but it does mean when the desk is finally finished and all fittings need to be tightened, there are two screws which cannot be reached because the keyboard tray is in the way.
However, the desk feels very firm and solid so perhaps it is not vital, one just likes to feel that everything is tight.
I am finding this very useful, and glad that I bought it.
