comment
" ...  I'm very happy with the desk, though I wish I had more desk space - that's more a limitation of the space I have to work in, so I was able to get really creative with some under desk drawers, a clamp cup holder and 'thing' holder, headset clamp hanger, and a tissue box holder that screws into the wall near the desk.  ...  "

comment
" ...  However, putting it together was a pain in the rear. ... It started out easy but things fell apart when you try to align the rod from the left leg to the right leg. ... The hole on the right leg was misaligned by 2 mm and so shoving the rod in won't work. ... You have to first unscrew the two metal plates that hold the legs together. ... Then you have to twist and turn your way to align the rod into the legs. ... Furthermore, the screw holes to the power supply were misaligned. ... I had to rip out the power supply from the metal plate, stuck it against the plate that holes the two legs together and then screwed the original plate back on. ... It wasn't the easiest thing to put together.  ...  "
