scuffs, scratches, chips
By: Anonymous, Homeowner
I love the design, but the surface doesn't hold up. Out of the box, the finish is gleaming. First off, the desk smudges easily. I can live with this, but what's worse are the permanent scratches and scuffs. All I keep on the desk are papers, a monitor, and a keyboard with rubber protectors on the underside. As good as the table looks in the showroom, it's surface just won't hold up to even mild use. Along with the scratches, some of the finish on mine also chipped off. It's a small spot, maybe the size of two grains of rice, but it's right in the middle of the pull out tray. I talked to bludot and they said it wasn't covered by warranty as I must have hit it with something. But I didn't hit it with anything. They refused to listen. All of this happened within the first 6 months of owning the desk, so don't expect its good looks to last long.
Suits my need for wide keyboard drawer
By: Lisa G., Designer (Sacramento)
It has a beautiful finish, I love the high gloss and clean lines/design. I needed a desk with a wide keyboard drawer, since I have a full size keyboard, mouse on one side and a trackpad on the other side (I use both hands, helps with carpal tunnel issues). Almost all the computer desks out there do not have the width of a lower-level drawer to accommodate any more than a small keyboard and mouse. Am I the only person in the world with this need? I've needed a desk like this for years! Glad I found it. The downside-- the drawer itself is not stable and has a quite a side-to-side lateral wobble. I put up with it because I am so thrilled to fit all my hand needs on the lower level. (I am 5'4" tall, and the height works well for me)
