Realspace� Magellan Tech Station, 30H x 29 2/5W x 21D, Espresso
Okay this isnt made of real wood, obviously but for the price it is AMAZING, it was easy to put together, DEFINITELY use power tools or it will take hours! It is a very functional piece! The color is rich and luxurious, it definitely makes our office look more inviting. We ordered the L shaped desk as well as the book shelf and file cabinet. Couldnt be Happier with our purchase. The only con on any of these products is the shipping.... They use a carrier instead of UPS or FEDEX, they dont provide tracking information at all. We still havent recieved our desks that were supposed to be here on 10/22

Awesome Little Cabinet!
First of all, you can't beat the price for what you are getting. Second, don't let the number of pieces and instructions scare you. All the parts are marked, and all the screws, nuts and bolts you will be needing for each step are in a clearly marked numbered pouch. I am a 70-year-old single female, and I was able to put this cabinet together by myself though it did take a couple of hours. Once put together, the work station is sturdy, very utile and a handsome piece of furniture. I love it and couldn't be happier with it!

Decent "Tech Station" printer area
Like others I bought this mainly to use as a printer workstation. To house the printer on top, store paper & ink supplies, and for that it works great.
I don't know how much I'll use the laptop tray or the charging station for other devices but it should come in handy I think. The laptop tray is pretty small, if fits my 15" MacBook pro just fine, but far as pulling the tray out and using it as a laptop stand it's pretty shallow such that the laptop will be hanging off the edge. It's really just a place to store a laptop
I like the drawers, cord holes & caps on top & hidden compartments to store cords / power strip and give it a clean nice look. For my purposes it was either get this or the short file cabinet to put the printer on as the Realspace L desk wasn't big enough to house my printer and for that I believe I'll get more practical use out of this tech stand than I would have the short file cabinet.
As I've found with this Realspace product line, It looks nice, expect a couple damaged or scratched pieces as packaging is tight. Also the veneering "wood" look is just a thin sticker overlay and not even a laminate strip. So it's very susceptible to scratches, but being mainly a place to house the printer and supplies it shouldn't come under much daily abuse
