Realspace� Mezza L-Shaped Glass Computer Desk, 30H x 61 1/2W x 61 1/2D, Black/Chrome
This desk is not durable at all. The screws are pulling out of the Black partcle boards that run from one leg to the other. So now the desk is more unstable than ever before

First off, I got this desk 6 days ago from a local Office Depot store. I had found a $40 coupon online so I ended up getting this thing for just under $200 after tax. Let me just say that it's truly amazing how much desk space it offers, and how good it looks. One thing I wanted to make sure I said was that I noticed a lot of reviews saying that the instructions were unclear, and it took 2 people around 4 hours to assemble this desk. I don't know what their problem was because I am 15 years old, and I found the instructions quite clear and it took me around 2 hours to assemble it BY MYSELF. (This includes flipping the desk over by myself). Also, EVERY part was labeled, contrary to other reviews. If you look on both sides of the part there will be a round sticker somewhere with a letter on it about the size of a dime or penny. Also, the built in cord management is GREAT, all my wires are organized and out of sight. On the corner part of the desk, it has 2 grommets with caps to feed wires from underneath the desk to the things above it. Also, there are 2 rubber wire holders on each side of the desk as well to keep wires out of side and organized. If you assemble it right, this desk does not budge. If you were to try and pull one end, the entire desk would move in unison. To put desk space into perspective, I have my Xbox 360, a 32" monitor, a 23" monitor, a Logitech Extreme 3D Pro Joystick, my headset, my mouse, my wireless headset receiver for Xbox, and my Xbox wireless remote receiver for PC on only HALF of the desk. On the other side I have a lamp, 13" school laptop, home phone, Xbox remote docking station, and a pencil holder with plenty of room to do homework on that side as well. One thing I want to point out is that the keyboard tray is a tad on the small side. I can't fit my mouse and keyboard next to each other on it, but it isn't in anyway less comfortable with the mouse on the desktop. Leg room wise, I am about 6' tall and can sit with plenty of spare leg room. All in all, this desk is fantastic! I am very happy with it.

Excellent value; looks great
My husband and I put this together in just over an hour. Take your time and as many others have pointed out, do not tighten until you have fit all the pieces in each section together. The only issue with the black glass top is that you see lots of dust and fingerprints...but I figure it will just force me to keep it clean. I keep a duster close by. With a $30 off coupon it was less than $207 out the door and well worth the price--very solid construction and much preferable to pressed wood options at the same price point. We plan to replace my husband's pseudo-wood desk with another one of these. Highly recommended.

Wonderful Contemporary Desk
I was looking for a contemporary desk for my home, preferably in black, and this fits the bill perfectly. It looks great in person! It's sleek, modern, and large, so there's lots of surface space.
The only things keeping this review from being 5 stars is:
-- the keyboard tray could be a bit wider. As it is, my mouse cannot fit on it alongside my ergonomic keyboard. I have to sit my mouse on the desk itself to use it.
-- We ended up having to take off one of the back pieces off and flip it because we had accidentally put the non-laminated edge facing upwards where you can see it. Why not laminate both long edges so it doesn't matter which end is up?? When we tried to re-attach it back on to the desk, however, the screws went into the holes too easily and would not hold securely. We ended up having to buy longer screws so that it would hold.
Other than that, I'd highly recommend this desk.
