All in all I love this desk. As I'm typing this review, I'm typing it while my laptop is on this desk. What I love the most about this desk are two things, the appearance and extra features. This desk is a lovely dark black-ish/slightly browni-ish desk. Also, I love the glass top, it adds to the nice appearance. What I also love about it is the fact that it comes with a little section on the top where you can store stuff, but not only can it be used for extra easy access storage, it also comes with this thing where you can plug in different electrical outlets and usb cables to it, so if you have a laptop, cellphone, etc. on your desk, you can have be charging! Sorry for the unorganized review people! Anyways yes! This is a great desk and worth the buy! Caution: It took me around 3 hours to assemble it.

The ONLY two things good about this desk is the glass top (with the steel frame) and the flip-up box to hold your power strips & stuff.

The material this desk is made of is VERY CHEAP, LOW-DENSITY chip-board. It will break as you assemble it. I had to use GLUE to hold it together, and EPOXY to repair the embedded nuts that tore out when I was assembling this on the floor and tried to turn it upright.

In addition, the "finish" looks lile wood veneer or stained wood, but is actually THIN PAPER - which is less than 0.02" thick, and if you take a piece of Scotch tape and stick it on the "wood" part of the desk, press it down for a second, then try to remove it, the finish will come off exposing the cheap cardboard underneath (see photo below).

Like it so far

Comments about Whalen® Axia Computer Desk, Espresso:

I am a college student and I bought this desk for my new apartment. It's not a huge desk, but it's more than big enough to be able to do almost everything I could want on it. The instructions that it came with were very straight forward and I was able to put it together, with a friend, in 3 hours. A lot of the other reviews said it took them 8 hours or something, and I'm not wuite sure what happened there, but I thought it was an easy setup. The keyboard drawer slide was a little stiff at first, but now that I've been using it for a couple of weeks it is very smooth. The glass top is fairly easy to clean as well. Also, the side compartment is probably my favorite thing about this desk. It has a lot of room and extra outlets and usb slots, it's wonderful. Overall, it's a fantastic desk.

GREAT DESK

By M B

Comments about Whalen® Axia Computer Desk, Espresso:

This is a terrific desk especially if you know a bit about carpentry. Cable management is a big deal to me so desks with large open areas look good in photos but not in practical use.

The style is modern and attractive. It's great if you don't have a lot of space but still need a good size work stations.

The two power outlets in the top loading compartment are great to have. The 3 USB ports aren't of any use to me. They are USB 1.0 and also aren't worth using for charging (they are about .5 amps, which is slow).

I didn't like the edge of the keyboard tray. It had a raised area that cut into my wrists. It was easy to remove it, glue it so the top part was flush against the top of the main tray, then used a nail gun to secure.

If you have a desktop computer this desk is a challenge because where do you put the computer itself? My option is for those with carpentry skills (or access to someone that does). I cut two holes inside the top compartment, removed the adjustable shelf, and now I have a big space for my computer, and cable management is a snap. All cables are out of sight.

As for the quality of the product, some reviews bash it but I found the laminated pressboard of good quality. I've seen far worse. This is good. The manufacturer includes a black marker for touch ups. It's a water based marker though. I would rather use a sharpie so it doesn't smudge.

The glass counter top is made of tempered glass, very strong. I like it a lot because I can put a cold drink on it and just wipe it clean.

I don't like a lot of objects on my desk, like accessories, knick knacks etc. so this desk is perfect for me. If you need or like to have a desk with a lot of space for these kinds of things, don't buy this desk!

I have two of these desks in a home office. One has the retrofits described above, the other doesn't because it has an all-in-one computer on top so the retrofits aren't necessary. It looks good.

I wish there was a black plastic cover for the small area that has the power outlets. That is my only issue.

Overall very satisfied.

Excellent!

By Best Desk for the Price

from Bonita, California

Comments about Whalen® Axia Computer Desk, Espresso:

Before buying it, I had a hard time reading all those negative feedback, but the design really caught my eye so I went for it. BEST CHOICE.
As I expected, heavy package, but inside everything perfectly protected and no scratch at all!
I was ready to struggle while assembling it, after what I've read, but after reading the assembly guide, identifying all pieces and components, it took me less than 2 hours to finish that piece of beauty.
It is heavy and hard to move ON YOUR OWN once it's finished, but get a extra hand and you can easily change it's location whenever you feel like!
Design it's just great, and the hidden plugs and usb ports, they just make it even better.
It's great for a designer trying to have a little extra room for sketch books, or even drawing tablets, and the glass surface just hits the spot!
