Officeworks Healy Computer Desk Review

Healy Computer Desk

Well I bought the desk I saw a week or so ago. Here’s what I thought of it:

 

Great price, stylish yet simple, Sturdy but flexible.

Colouring is quite nice; quite realistic, although it hasn’t quite been finished properly (bits of the veneering are rough around the edges).
Biggest issue I had was how to build the thing. Instructions weren’t very explicit and I would dearly like to know why they chose allen headed screws.

Other than that, it fits my gaming keyboard and mouse easily side by side, and the keyboard tray slides all the way in. I would rather the keyboard tray was deeper so that It would be a bit more stable and for extra paper space but that’s just me.

If you see this desk at the Officeworks store, I wouldn’t take that as a good indication of the actual quality of this desk. I went to 2 different stores and both were a very poor representation (broken caster wheels, scratched veneer etc.) The actual desk is fine (I can’t even see how you could break the caster wheels off)

Last thing I guess is annoying is the height. I would have liked it to be a little taller. I’ve got a high-back leather chair and it basically needs to be on the lowest hight to fit my legs comfortably.

Anyway, overall I am quite satisfied and definitely recommend this desk to anyone with space constraints and looking for a budget option!
