Staples usually has reasonable quality at fair price. Another bonus is the free delivery on any purchase over $50. (Always wanted to pick up a couple of printer carts and ask them to deliver... :) ).

Yeah Staples is about the only place I know of for decent desks.

You could go to Ikea but there stuff isn't that great, functionality wise.

Agreed. WalMart is evil.

I bought my setup at Ikea (a much lesser evil than WalMart). I have an awesomely roomy L shaped desk, office cupboads/filing, drawers and shelves on the wall. Couldn't be happier. :D

+1 for Staples, I didnt need storage but wanted a nice looking glass top corner desk. Got a great 3 piece with room for my 3 monitor setup and another puter on the other side.
