All in all this has been a great desk for me. It's the standard pressboard material with thin laminate on it so it can dent easily but haven't had that problem yet. I love the USB Hub built into the top of the desk. Very convenient. I wish the file cabinet had a lock on it but I can figure something out if I really need to. For the size of the desk and price I feel its a great value. I had this item shipped with no issues and the delivery team was very polite and patient with me.
