I'd like to point out that this desk is still my daily work horse. It has traveled around the globe with me (2.5 year stint in Sweden) and survived at least 5 separate moves outside of that. The surface is still in exceptional shape for a 9 year old desk and it's holding up great. I've only recently noticed that the screws are starting to have worn-down threads. I'm loathe to think that I might have to find a replacement for this modern marvel should these screws ever actually fail me.
All in all, this is the best desk I've ever owned, and if you can ever find one on craiglist, buy it. This desk is so good it falls under the same lamentable category of "Why did they cancel FireFly?!"
