Sauder Carson Forge Desk
If you want a more reliable option, a desk that will not require so much space just like the first desk in the list and at the same time work as the previous one then this is a more expensive but a better choice. The desk comes with 3 drawers that has Patented T-slot drawer system and have enough space to store a lot of books and stationary.

The drawers have metal runners and safety stops and the Lower drawer holds letter-size hanging files. This is a perfect desk for day to day home office work and a budget friendly option to store a lot of stationery items.
Cabot Collection 60″ L-Desk
This desk is similar to the previous one but has more features. For only a couple of more dollars, you can get a very good home office desk that even supports desktops. The desk contains one open drawer for keeping the CPU inside it which can be closed when you are not working to prevent dust from entering it. There is also one Slide-out keyboard/mouse shelf for keeping things easy.
The desk also has a desktop grommet hole for electrical cord access at the back from where you can easily hide the cables and easily route the cords to your CPU. The other two drawers are present at the right side having different sizes for different purposes like storing AA files, folders, legals etc. One of the best advantages of this desk is that it is eligible for free replacement parts. Definitely a must buy for $200.
BBF Series A 72W Desk
If you want a simple looking decent desk for your work or even for your desktop then this desk is the one that has some customizable features that makes it a good buy even if doesn’t have any drawers. There are already present grommets for easy wire access and has a Pencil Drawer/Keyboard Shelf mounting.
The top is diamond coated which is totally scratch and stain resistant and the feet is sturdy molded ABS feet with steel insert. The desk also comes with adjustable levelers for stability on uneven floor. These are some unique features of this desk. One good thing about this desk is that it is very good for studying and operating computer as you can easily adjust your legs and stretch them under the table which is a necessity for working several hours continuously.
Cabot Collection 60″ L-Desk
This Cabot 60 inches L shaped desk is another great desk for multi-purpose. The desk has two drawers and one concealed storage. The drawers use the ball bearing mechanism for easy and smooth opening/closing. The concealed storage can be used for CPU’s and the wires/cables can be routed through the grommet at the top of the desk which also has 4 USB port hub that uses a single connection.
This is the best feature of the Desk that you can use upto 4 USB devices for charging your phones, routers, pen drives etc. through a single connection which isn’t available in any of the previous desks. Now coming to the drawers, the upper small drawer can be used for storing miscellaneous items like stationery and the lower drawer is made especially for storing AA files, folders, legals etc.
The desk has plenty of space available on the top to work with and an integrated charging station is also present above the concealed storage which can be used for placing and charging your phones, mp3’s and cameras through the USB ports that are provided in the desk itself. This desk is also present with a Hutch if you want the complete collection.
Monarch Specialties Hollow-Core/Silver Metal Office Desk
If you want a smaller desk with three drawers then this desk provides everything from a lot of space on top to good amount of storage too. The desk has three drawers that have silver coloured hardware and the third i.e., the right hand side drawer is huge enough to store any stationery items. The desk is open and feels comfortable because it has a floating top desk with good amount of space in between the drawers.
This desk will take you around 2 hours to assemble but the quality is much better than the previous desks and is more reliable. However as stated by the amazon.com the legs are silver coloured but no customer said that they were silver instead complained that they were grey. This is the only con I find in this desk. Other than this it is great for offices where you want to acquire less area.
Monarch Specialties Hollow-Core L-Shaped Desk
This desk is a collection of everything that you could possibly use at your home or office. It has several drawers which are made for different purposes. You can store your books, stationery items, printers, routers, files and folders and many other things. This desk is small and is meant for using corner of a room. It can be built to be placed either at the right or left corner of a room. So don’t be in a dilemma that it can only be put on a right cornered room as it looks in the picture above.
There will be several different parts which you need to assemble when it will come to your home but they need a little bit of attention and hard work to put together. It’s better if you follow the manual or visit their manufacturer’s website for the whole process. But if you follow everything correct, then even a 10 year child can assemble it.
This desk can also be put into two different pieces if you want to separate the storage drawers that are present on the right side and the working desk on the left. In my opinion this desk is decent when you want several drawers to store items and at the same time don’t want to use a lot of space in your home or office.
