Rated 5 out of 5 by Hits the spot! Well made unit. Good, easy to follow assembly instructions, rigid construction, doesn't wobble in use. Good purchase. PS My Nickname SKRAPS ! 27 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ideal desk for student flat Have bought two of these for rooms in student flat. Difficult to find a desk compact enough for a small area but this is perfect and a very solid piece of furniture. Delighted with the product. 06 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent little desk The desk is lovely, feels very solid, and very good quality. It was was easy to set up with a little help. The only issue (and this is not really an issue just a point to note if buying online) - it is exactly as the title states - small. The photo on the website shows lots of items on it (which gives a feeling of space), however, practically speaking, there is not much space to work on/place extra work on once the laptop is placed on it. However, it is fit for purpose, and as it is small, can be moved around very easily, or fit into any rooms if you have space limitations. The addition of a narrow drawer would have been absolutely perfect! 05 August 2015
