Does everything it says, everything is well made, and a decent size to make good use of.
Only down sides, could be moved easier to change equipment etc if it was on castors, and would be greatly improved if sliding shelf was set in a little to prevent stuffing when doors not opened quite fully.

(9 out of 10)
I'm very happy with this item. I had a good workstation desk that was designed for the old CRT monitor but my wife wanted something smaller and less obtrusive as she was decorating and set on having a "change about"; that was a mood I resisted until I saw that the "rat's nest" of wiring that was on show beneath, and that I'd been prepared to ignore, was now a danger to grand-children who were beginning to crawl and explore. Anyway when I eventually found this I knew it was just the job: Organised interior with doors to safely hide away all of the "gubbins"; I keep the surface area that I need whilst the simple clean lines satisfy my wifes desire for a more contemporary look ( a flat screen monitor looks cool sat atop the natural oak surface); It manages to look elegant although of good solid construction (which appeals to me as I was once a joiner and had always been uncomfortable with the flat pack brand of furniture); everyone admires it.
You should be careful to make sure that the doors are opened sufficiently wide before the keyboard table is slid out; Myself, I might've thickened the rails that carry the metal sliding tracks so as to reduce the width of the keyboard table enough to allow the doors to only need to open to 90 degrees. Also, I needed to cut some of the back panel to allow peripherals to be connected to the rear of the computer tower; the compartment is the right size and deep enough for my tower case alone ..but the connections stick out adding an extra inch or two (I guess that deepening the whole thing might make it too wide to get through doorways). It's more than I was looking to pay.. but I think it was well worth it and I woudn't part with it.
