Brenton Studio Computer Desk, 56 1/4H x 39 3/8W x 23 3/4D, Honey Maple
The desk itself seems to be okay however the drawer below the keyboard broke the first day. The drawer mechanism literally disintegrated. I expect the keyboard tray to follow shortly. It seemed like a good value for the money but I am having second thoughts.

Worth the price
What should have been metal really was, and allo of the parts fit together as designed although it sometimes took a bit to get them aligned correctly. One minor issue was that the top shelf is secured by four bolts and the metal anchor for one of them was missing; a replacement shelf was been shipped.

I really like the computer desk that I purchase it has a lot of pieces to put together and it is best to follow the exact instructions for doing this I really like the appearance and design of this desk. Just don't do what I did and not notice that it came with an allen wrench to assemble. Some of the parts take two persons to help with the assembly of this desk so make sure someone is home with you to help. It's comfortable to sit at and all in all it is well made.
This desk comes with a drawer which is located under the keyboard slide out tray I really like this drawer but it was a bit difficult to assemble.

3 Years Strong
I purchased this desk with 2 years left in my degree. My wife and I had a 3-year-old. This desk has moved twice and to a different city. Now I'm starting my 2nd year of my Master's program. The desk is sturdy, and it works for what it should. It is not a 300 dollar desk, but for the price, its absolutely worth it. Nothing has fallen off, the wheels still roll, the wheel-locks still lock.
The assembly takes about 30 minutes with 2 people (you'll need 2 people). As other reviews have mentioned, the drawer under the keyboard holder can't fit too much. It has gotten a little stuck at times. But honestly, for this price, for this amount of time, this is a great computer desk. I've kept our printer on the top shelf for 2 years now, a huge Canon Pixma MX882 that weighs right over 20 pounds! There is a slight bow in the shelf, but no splitting or cracking.
Put this shelf together well, and it should last. The only negative I can think of is that I bought the product protection and never needed it before it expired!
