Monarch Specialties Inc. Computer Desk, 48-Inch, Cappuccino : The price for these is great, we have three now as I put 2

Monarch specialties length computer desk, 48-inch, cappuccino. This is a reasonably priced desk with plenty of space for the desk top computer and homework. My son loves it as it is modern styling.

Very sturdy and roomy but be forewarned – it does scratch easily. I am a bit concern what it will like like in a year or two. Reasonable easy to put together if you have a average amount of mechanical skill.

Only problem is the wood used in the desk soaks up water and leaves water marks/damages. Other than that, don’t spill water or leave cold cups that will condense on it.

The price for these is great, we have three now as i put 2. The price for these is great, we have three now as i put 2 together to make an “l” so to speak. The finish will wear off a bit over time but generally a great computer desk and i am able to fit three monitors on one.

  • Lovely desk but very thin room for hands in keyboard drawer
  • Desk is great, if everything arrives ok
  • Waiting for reply from Monarch

  • Contemporary design

  • Keyboard pull out

It looks good and suits my needs.

Functions exactly the way i expected it to.

Looks good and was relatively easy to assemble.

I needed a desk that would fit in a smaller space. I wanted it to look nice and this one seemed to fit the bill. When it arrived i got started and put it together in about 45 minutes. It came with glue, but i used gorilla glue in the dowels and it holds together very well. No wobbling, easy to follow instructions.

Came quickly, was exactly as described, and it suits my purpose perfectly.

It came with a few scratches probably from shipping but we can live with it. It matches the other desk i bought from a different supplier but this is much cheaper.

Price is cheap; merchandise was chipped. . When i received 2 tables, i found many parts were chipped on both. It doesn’t look like it was damaged during the shipping; while manufacturing, they put many chipped parts together, but many of them are facing inside and downward. Because my time is valuable, and those tables are rush to use. I don’t waisting time to return. Fortunately,i found the color tap (for covering the screws position), and used it to cover the damaged parts, but still looks bad. For saving their reputation should credit back to me little bit.

Surprisingly excellent instructions and diagrams. Took me 5 hours to put it together.

Color not as seen, more reddish.

Nice desk, easily assembled and was able to work with the seller for any issues that came up.

One side panel was damaged when it. One side panel was damaged when it arrived but the monarch sent us a new piece immediately.

And the monumental box it was packed in looked like it had been as a result of a twister. Even though i should really have obtained this in two organization days, supply was late, and the great box it was packed in looked like it had been by means of a twister. The box was partially crushed in places and had been taped above on all sides and major and bottom. I should really have refused it, but i had needed it so a great deal and waited so very long (and certainly a couple of folks at minimum got a desk without the need of damages), so i took a opportunity and recognized it, hoping the ailment of the box would have no connection to the condition of the goods within. Just receiving within the box was a nightmare, with so considerably tape wound all around it, and when i last but not least, thoroughly, managed to get it open up and get started the undertaking of pulling out the sections, little crumbled bits of white styrofoam flew everywhere you go – on my garments, in my eyes, in my hair, not to point out all in excess of the carpet and spinning all over in the air like an indoor snowstorm. The styrofoam sheets were being damaged into bits and i experienced to vacuum for fifty percent an hour to clear it all absent. Pulling out the desk prime, the very first thing i found was that two of the 4 corners were being smushed (as if they had been banged difficult against one thing tougher) and the black veneer was in a crackly sample from gentle coloured board peeking by. I appeared all-around the space at the mess of ripped cardboard, wads of tape and styrofoam and realized what a nightmare it would be to check out to return the desk, so i persevered. Then as i pulled out a person of the side panels, i observed a major ‘ding’ ideal in the middle of it, about 3′ sq., wherever the veneer and the wooden beneath had been caved in, with very little shards poking out. It appeared like a person had kicked it or hit it with a hammer.

Wonderful desk but scratches easy.

Lovely desk but really slender space for palms in keyboard drawer. It took a though to assemble, but it appears to be like good in my dwelling. It scratches effortlessly (you can see the scratches when the light-weight hits the desk) and i have to say it’s not used each day and we never have young children. I speculate how this desk will hold up when we do have kids or use it more frequently. A matter to notice if you happen to be a guy, or a lady with massive fingers. The slide out tray for the keyboard is slim, so you can only variety when the keyboard tray is pulled out. I often pull out the tray and it can be at my stomach so i drive it in and try out to style but there is not enough space. Also, i would’ve appreciated for it to have holes for cables to drop as a result of.

Desk is just as advertised and functions good for me. Desk is just as marketed and functions excellent for me. Even my gaming keyboard and gaming mouse with mouse pad match on the keyboard slide out.

Ready for reply from monarch. Referred to as monarch for substitution, waiting for response.

It isnt flat like the pullout and it is troublesome but i can. The draw is not to my liking. It isnt flat like the pullout and it is frustrating but i can deal with it. Would suggest it to purchasers who are purchasing for just one.

    • Desk is great, if everything arrives ok. Desk is amazing and very modern. The product itself is amazing, but the company definitely has a problem when it comes to ordering replacement parts that were damaged in shipping.

    • Good computer desk w/o storage. A simple but functional desk and a good value through amazon. We had found the identical product sold by other vendors for between $175 and $350. Although the sliding keyboard drawer was of reasonably good quality, we decided to replace it with a professional grade slider from a hardware store. It’s very simple, no drawers or storage, but we needed desk and foot space.

    And the enormous box it was packed in looked like it had been through a tornado. Although i should have received this in two business days, delivery was late, and the enormous box it was packed in looked like it had been through a tornado. The box was partially crushed in places and had been taped over on all sides and top and bottom. I should have refused it, but i had wanted it so much and waited so long (and obviously a few people at least got a desk without damages), so i took a chance and accepted it, hoping the condition of the box would have no connection to the condition of the merchandise inside. Simply getting inside the box was a nightmare, with so much tape wound around it, and when i finally, carefully, managed to get it open and begin the task of pulling out the sections, tiny crumbled bits of white styrofoam flew everywhere – on my clothes, in my eyes, in my hair, not to mention all over the carpet and spinning around in the air like an indoor snowstorm. The styrofoam sheets were broken into bits and i had to vacuum for half an hour to clear it all away. Pulling out the desk top, the first thing i noticed was that two of the four corners were smushed (as if they had been banged hard against something harder) and the black veneer was in a crackly pattern against light colored board peeking through. I looked around the room at the mess of ripped cardboard, wads of tape and styrofoam and realized what a nightmare it would be to try to return the desk, so i persevered. Then as i pulled out one of the side panels, i saw a big “ding” right in the middle of it, about 3″ square, where the veneer and the wood underneath were caved in, with little shards poking out. It looked like someone had kicked it or hit it with a hammer.

    Lovely desk but very thin room for hands in keyboard drawer. It took a while to assemble, but it looks nice in my house. It scratches easily (you can see the scratches when the light hits the desk) and i have to say it’s not used daily and we don’t have kids. I wonder how this desk will hold up when we do have kids or use it more often. A thing to note if you’re a man, or a lady with big hands. The slide out tray for the keyboard is narrow, so you can only type when the keyboard tray is pulled out. I sometimes pull out the tray and it’s at my belly so i push it in and try to type but there is not enough room. Also, i would’ve liked for it to have holes for cables to drop through.
