      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      This workstation might be DIY but its not Do It By Yourself! I had to find a man to help me put this puzzle together. The flat pack computer workstation I purchased from B&Q about a year ago looked very smart in the store. Although it was made from chip board the light wood effect finish was quite pleasing and it didn't look as though it would be hard to assemble. The pieces were so hard to put together as there was no way of determining which piece to assemble first. Everytime I thought I had worked it out I had to start again. not a job for one person. The diagrams were so confusing that at times I wondered if they were anything to do with what I was assembling. Some bits needed two pairs of hands to assemble. It was impossible to hold section together and put the screws in. I don't drive so my first problem was getting this heavy weight package home.It came in a long brown cardboard box with vicious looking staples inserted here and there. The entire package was taller than I am! I had to get a taxi and ask an assistant to help me put in the taxi. Taxi driver helped me lift it out so I had to tip him. Assembly of the unit required a tradesman as I didn't have anyone to help me. So, my £29.99 computer workstation had now cost me: Workstation: £30 Taxi : £5.60 Tip : £1.40 Tradesman : £15 Total: £52 I think I would have been better getting a pre assembled unit and having it delivered. It probably would have been cheaper and I certainly would have got better quality. So, if you are considering buying one of these make sure you have some transport to get it home and someone to help lift it. You will also need help assembling this unless you are a contortionist!
