Does anyone have any experience with the Galant desks from IKEA. I really like the wood surface. Almost feels like an apple store. Are they any good? Links would be appreciated if you have them as well.

I've been using a Galant desk for a few years now, though I have a glass topped one with the T legs, and a Summera computer holder which allows me to attach my Mac Pro to the underside of the desk.

The desk is height adjustable and I've tied all the cables from my computer to the metal frame on the underside of the desk.

Although I can't comment on the wood top, I'd recommend the Galant desk.

My girlfriend and I each have a corner desk with extensions, risers, and T-legs. Tons of space, very strong and sturdy, and we loooooove them.

I have the corner desk with the beach wood and its really big and sturdy. The wood surface though is laminated so when you write on it it dents the wood, its not too noticeable but after time it will build up. I ended up getting a leather pad from Ikea specifically for the corner desk and it works well.

Don't have a Galant myself, but I do have a couple of SIGNUM cable tidy shelves screwed onto the underside of my desk. Makes for a very tidy working environment. :)

Obviously wouldn't work too well with a glass worktop!
