BEST LARGE DESK I'VE SEEN! PERFECT for my office.A month ago I purchased a rather large desktop computer... The gaming type. The CPU is rather large and my only option for my initial set-up was the dining room table. LOL Thus began my research for a more suitable desk area. I'm a fan of a large work space, so the BEKANT Desk size of 63" x 33.5" was perfect. Best to measure your space before buying. (They do have a slightly smaller one) Mind you, I did some shopping around and a price tag of $400 and up were more common than not. In IKEA I had the chance to get a good look and feel for this desk. The legs and built are very sturdy. Single person assembly with common tools are all that was needed. Box to usefulness in less than 30 minutes. The veneer surface coating isn't made to withstand deep scratches or a lot of heavy movement. Just keep this in mind, depending on your own personal use. For my purpose... (A large 3x 28" computer monitor set-up) this desk could not be beat. I'm happy with this purchase.
-Under table cable management netting.
-Large work area.
-Easy clean up
The veneer surface will show scratches. (Use a desk mat to help this. IKEA carries those too... $5.99)
That's it. And yes... I'd buy it again.

Great Desk Durable And Nice Looking Spacious PieceThis is a great desk, if your like me and like open space opposed to lots of drawers, frames, etc. then this is for you. This unit is wide and open so pretty much your receiving a flat desk. If you need extra space you can use galant series drawers and put in under the desk as well as combination storage that you can place aside for additional space. I purchased this unit 5 years ago and it still looks as good as it did on day 1, +10 for durability. The only flaw I noticed is the legs on mine does not allow the metal screw to show on one side, I might've got misplaced legs, but it wasn't a big deal for me. I also purchased one of these of the newer ones and you can hide the legs that show the screw to the back so obviously this has been fixed. I actually like the screw accent as the other side is hidden by the drawer unit and one leg is the only one that shows this detail.
