I received this Altra Parsons table in about a week, I read a lot of bad reviews so I was VERY skeptical! But once I opened the box, saw how easy the instructions were and put the table together I wondered why there was so many bad reviews. I LOVE this table! I'm using it as a vanity and it's perfect. It is rather small so it's perfect for a small room. It reminds me of the IKEA Malm table somewhat. The drawer has enough space for all of my makeup palettes and room to grow. The drawer doesn't pull out all the way however (similar to the IKEA Malm dressing table) I really love this table for the price you can't beat it (I bought a used one for $40 instead of paying the original price) People were also complaining that it came with wood glue, the glue is to secure wooden dowels into the leg post. Don't listen to the bad reviews this is a decent table especially for the cost it looks more expensive than it actually is. My table doesn't shake or anything like others have complained. The desk is the perfect height to use a stool or a regular chair. [...]

This is a great little desk
This is a great little desk. I use mine as a vanity to do my hair and make up in the morning and it is perfect. It was easy to put together and looks more expensive than it is. I am really glad i purchased it! Has a small drawer where i keep my hair brushes and some other small goodies.

A MUST BUY
The desk is undeniably beautiful and very simple to assemble. And trust me, coming from me is saying a lot. All you have to do is turn the desk over to assemble the legs. Then you apply the included wood glue in each of the four corners. Each leg will be marked either B or C and you will input each of them as directed by their directory booklet. Then you insert two screws in each leg and tighten them with the included Allen wrench. Voila, there you have it. I would also like to add that I appreciate the easy to follow directory, it makes a huge difference when assembly directions are easy to follow. However, the Allen wrench I received was inefficient on the short side, while the long side fit into the screws like a glove. Thus making the final tightening of the screws a bit frustrating.
Now the body of the desk itself is surprisingly sturdy. But, I found the legs to be slightly on the light side. Nonetheless, it’s a wonderful product. I bought it on sale for about $37 and was hoping upon arrival that I didn’t end up with a product where I would have to say, “Well, you get what you pay for.” I am simply ecstatic that I received an amazing product for such an amazing price. It suites my bedroom well.
I would recommend this desk for people who live in a dorm room or have a very small bedroom. It is very space efficient, but because of this, it’s not meant to hold a lot of things. The drawer is a lot smaller than I had hoped for, but it is still able to hold my basic necessities like my pens, pencils, stapler, and mini notebook. The only downside is that unfortunately it came with several small dents. It was nothing major though and I fully intend to keep it. Not to mention, I received a partial refund for the damage.

Fits Two 24" LCD Monitors, Speakers, Keyboard, Mouse
Pros: Dual 24" Monitor LCD Arm Clamp fits perfectly and securely: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002R9HQLI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Fits keyboard, mouse well.
Can also fit decent sized speakers if you use one monitor or dual LCD clamp.
Cons: I can see a leg breaking if trying to drag across carpet while there is weight on desk. Move it carefully and the wood should not break.
Worth the $50 (as of 5/12/2015)

Beautiful, easily put together. I love this! I'm using this as my vanity and it's perfect! Nice size and had no issues with shipping. Only thing is I wished the drawer pulled out more and was more roomy but other then that I love it.
