Can someone find me a desk for around $100 - Page 3

post #21 of 27

I'm using a 28" monitor and this is desk I own

. I bought it for $199.00+ tax from a local furniture dealer. I LOVE the slide out tray, it puts plenty of room between me and the monitor.

Either you didn't look very hard, or you just don't like the idea.

Out of 12 countertops, only TWO are that price, and both are solid wood Numerar models. All the others are between $39 and $89. In fact, the exact same one that is $129 has 5 other options at $79. If you really want it to be wood:

Cheers, and good luck to you. I know finding the right desk, especially on a budget, can be difficult.

Well I know you already threw the IKEA idea out the window, but I just got this desk the other day. I have 2 24" monitors on it and it has a pretty thick top so I doubt it will give you any trouble with bowing.

I got this desk because I was sick of my glass desk and I can't fit this desk in my apartment. Plus I kind of like the light wood look of it.

As above i know you ruled out ikea but they do some excellent table tops with matching legs available really cheaply but they are actually very good. I just bought two of the smallest table tops with 4 legs for each and must say they are excellent. The tops are quite thick and the legs are super sturdy steel (i think they are steel anyway).

You could easily mix and match whatever sizes/styles/colours you wanted to and end up with an excellent desk plus they would easily hold a 28" monitor no problem, even if not you could always get an extra leg to go in the middle for extra support.

Z-line Gemini. It used to be right around $100.

Look it up at Staples. They also have the glass version as well which is better imo.
