easy to modify to suit your needs
This is a great desk. It was very easy to put together and seems to be quite sturdy. As you can see with my pictures, if you have limited space, it can still work as a "L" desk. The two long pieces are completely separate and can be put together in 10 minutes each. You can simply put together the two long pieces in the area without the connecting corner piece. It is also easy to modify. The keyboard tray was too small for me, as it might be for others, so I decided to use the keyboard tray parts and make it into a monitor stand! You can use the frame of the keyboard tray and simply drill 4 holes into the corners and screw little legs on through those holes. If you want a great looking desk and easy to use and modify to suit your needs, this is the desk for that! Highly recommended

and they look awesome. But that's not why anyone's going to read ...
I currently have two of these desks (black legs, clear tops) assembled side-by-side, and they look awesome. But that's not why anyone's going to read this review. Here's the good, bad, and the asinine.
*Looks modern, sleek, and very professional
*Sturdy design despite streamlined (very thin) limbs and supports
*Plenty of clearance for my legs and shins (I'm 5' 11"). I kick the wall behind the desk before I come near the cross beams
*Supports multiple monitors and desktop computers without concern of collapsing.
*Provides a surprisingly large amount of work area.
*Glass edges are angled to prevent scraping of limbs and chipping of the glass.
*Extra of each screw in case of defects.
*Superb packing. I ordered from walmart and my girlfriend from amazon. Both boxes looked like they had been dragged behind the truck upon delivery. No damage was found when we opened what remained of the box.
*Assembly is pretty speedy. Took an hour without a drill and 20 minutes with one. Keep in mind I had already assembled one when I busted out the drill. I'd expect around a half hour for anyone with a drill reading the directions the first time through.
*Phone number and website are provided on front of assembly instructions in case anything is lost, broken, or flat out missing.
*No built in options for cable management. Invest in some zip ties if that's a must.
*Limbs are all hollow. Saves on weight (and your back during assembly) but allows you to punch bolts through if you aren't careful.
*No options to install drawers, a hutch, or a small cupboard. It is what it is.
*You will have styrofoam everywhere when you're done, but at least your glass won't be broken.
*The keyboard tray is TINY. It fits a large wired keyboard with number pad and has about an inch of glass to spare. Your mouse and keyboard will be living separate lives from now on.
*You will at the very least need a philips head screw driver. I'm sincerely hoping that's not a deal breaker for anyone.
*Every part is conveniently labeled with a sticker. The sticker cannot be conveniently removed, especially the large square one on the keyboard glass. You may need a razor blade to remove the stickers on the glass, or cover it up with your keyboard.
*Glass tops are all held in place by suction cups
*Directions don't indicate you can decide which side has the keyboard. Simply swap parts 2 and 4 for part 6 during assembly.
*Directions have you build keyboard tray AFTER attaching keyboard support to desk. This means you assemble it from BENEATH the desk. Do the keyboard assembly part of step 5 and 6 immediately after step 2. You'll be glad you did.
*A drill speeds assembly up tremendously, but keep in mind the hollow limbs. I recommend drilling 95% of the way, and manually tightening with included allen wrench the remaining 5%.
*The provided PC tower holder is supposed to go under the desk. That's fine if you don't mind it sucking up all the dust, hair, and debris on your floor (yay clean floors!). The corner piece of glass can easily support a 15 lb PC tower.
We bought these desks to provide enough space on each for multiple monitors, a desktop PC, and an xbox. They delivered with a bit of space to spare.
As you can see from the picture I uploaded, you probably will want some zip ties if you're putting electronics on these desks.

on 2016-11-05 Well worth the price.
Four years and still nice. I got this November 2012. If you do scratch the underside of the glass, however, then you will see it on the top as well. This is because the glass itself is transparent, but the underside is layered with black paint/paper. This makes it opaque (do not confuse this black table with the smoke
It currently supports over 100 lbs of monitors and massive vesa monitor stand (since July 2015). Cable management is a bit tricky, since this is a very "open" design (see my photos). In its life, it has been disassembled, moved across the country, and reassembled. It also supported, at a time, a 25 pound UPS and an equally heavy desktop on the left and right glass (in addition to the monitors). A 10 pound cat walks all over it too.
To view larger photos, open the review (https://www.amazon.com/review/RB0TEXACKJC9R). Hover over the image and a "bigger" image will float/pop up. Over over that "bigger" image, right-click, and select "open in new tab". There are currently 10 photos. If photos are missing, it's BTA-MALL's fault (wait and refresh).

This desk was harder to bring upstairs than to build. The process is very straightforward - all you need in addition to what they provide is a screwdriver! Though the packing is great, unboxing this was very difficult. It goes to show that they want to ensure your desk comes spanking new though. There is a lot of Styrofoam, so keep that in mind before you stick a box cutter into this. The instructions are very clear cut, but do read them carefully. I was in a giant rush to build this thing, so I skimmed it and in doing so, I missed some lines noting which way the bars should face, which is crucial! It took me awhile to redo it, but still, only an hour or two and I was done, and building furniture is my absolute nightmare! I am a clumsy girl who has a ton of makeup and tools on this desk, but there have been no scratches whatsoever. The desk was exactly as I had expected. I hope to buy another and combine them with my current to make an even more awesome battlestation. I want to put my PC on the desk, but I'm not sure if it can hold the weight, for those who are wondering. I ended up playing it safe and put it under my desk. However, three monitors is surely doable! I heard about this desk from Reddit and it turns out more than five of my friends have it. Do yourself a favor and get this desk!

Tempered glass shattered !!
This morning the tempered glass just shattered to a million pieces .. The only reason I can think of is that my 11 yr old left the laptop on whole night and the heat from it was the reason !! Poor quality tempered glass !!
To amazons credit they promptly agreed to send a replacement desk , but am still skeptical about the glass !!

Very sleek and sturdy.
Very happy with this desk. I need to have a dual pc setup for work. I have two laptops and a 2nd monitor for each. I also have to sets wireless mouse and keyboard, so I really wanted to 2 keyboard trays to keep the space neat and also be more ergonamic. I was looking for a second keyboard try, but struggled to find one that was cost effective and would work with glass. I found this exact desk, used, on Offer UP and bought a 2nd one, new, here on BTA-MALL. I was able to set it up so that I have the corner desk with 2 keyboard trays. I took one of the other desk pieces and set it up as additional workspace for paperwork, snacks, coffee etc. etc. I still have one more desk piece that I can use, but as this is in my bedroom the space is small. It is working out just how I wanted. Very sleek and sturdy, space saving, and yet ample space for my computers, Great bargain for the price.

Super easy assembly.
Beautiful desk. This piece was super easy to assemble. Instructions are clear (HAVE GLOVES HANDY- when you assemble the keyboard tray, things get a little sticky) and I was even surprised to find that it not only had all the small pieces but all of the small pieces came with one or two extras in case. BRILLIANT. I wish more companies did that.
Would be nice if the instructions would have an alternate set in case you want to install the part with the keyboard tray on the other side- I kinda had to make it up as I went along. Still the same desk, still just as sturdy, I just have my keyboard on the other side (due to the way my room is configured). Wasn't too hard to figure out but I did have to go back and re-do something at least once and I was constantly second-guessing myself.
I look forward to fully utilizing this desk soon.

Best desk for the price! Great organization.
After reading a lot of reviews I felt like I should take a risk on this desk especially since it is only $120ish. I loved seeing the photos of other people's set-up because that helped let me know that I can fit my 2 monitors, my cintiq tablet AND my printer without feeling too cramped.
- Assembly wasn't too difficult though the pic for the drawer attachment didn't even match the product but we figured it out quickly
- Quite a sturdy desk
- Nice looking and simple
- good bang for your buck
- the crossbeam on the bottom prevents me from sticking a small set of dressers underneath which is annoying but not a big deal
- You have to be sure that the 2 desk sections are properly aligned for best solid foundation.
- Which they had a frosted glass version, but I will probably do that myself.
Overall, this desk solved a LOT of organization issues I was having with my previous desk and cleaned up our computer/guest room a lot by consolidating the printer onto the desk and getting rid of that huge desk it was sitting on.

I LOVE IT!
For the price, I had not expected anything mind-blowing. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the Walker Edison Soreno 3-piece corner desk in black. It's by far the best desk that I've ever had for a home office at this price!
The instructions are a bit difficult at times, particularly with figuring out what is the 'top' of a piece while assembling. That said, I can easily understand why there are no designated tops or bottoms, as you can assemble this to have the keyboard on both the left or right table.
The metal pieces are remarkably solid and it included all the necessary hardware. The glass is beautiful and thick, so I doubt it will be breaking anytime soon. You are provided with tiny suction cups that fit into holes in the metal structure to secure the glass in place and prevent slippage. Even without anything on top of the desk, they seem to hold the glass in place well and I can only imagine having a weight of a monitor pressing down would only improve the grip. Without the glass, the frame is light and easy to move into whatever spot you desire after assembly. Once it's in a good place, just pop on the glass and you're good to go!
