Where can I buy a good desk?

Hey,
just now I have a really small desk that just doesn't have enough room and wondered if anyone knows a supplier in the UK where I can get a good desk for about £100. Ideally i'm looking for a desk that is big enough for my rig also.

Thanks.

I've heard that a lot of people on this forum are fan of Ikea's Galant desks, you can have a look on their site. 100 Quid should get you a 160x80cm one

It's cheaper with A-Legs

for the Ikea suggestion. Using one of their desks and feels massive. Can get my PC, monitor and speakers on here and still have the space on it for another 22" screen if I so desired. Not used the Galant desks but 160x80 sounds like the size of mine.

The Ikea Vika Amon is great for the price. If you're going to be putting a lot of weight on it it might be worth getting the one with 5 legs. Mine has started to bow slightly but I've got quite a lot on it.

Theyst0lemyname - When you said table with 5 legs you mean the corner ones?

Honestly, I have two of these things and I wish I'd spent a bit more. The legs seem to be slightly different lengths so the whole thing isn't really stable. All I've got on there are a monitor, speakers, keyboard, mouse and a cup of coffee

No they do one with a 5th leg in the middle at the back. It's probably actually just them advertising it with a 5th leg fitted though as the legs and top are separate items.

Have you adjusted the legs? The feet on mine are threaded. I don't know if that will be a recent thing they've done though as I only got my desk about 3-4 months ago.
