Pros

Portable

The foldable feature of this item makes it easy to carry around anywhere. Simply fold the frame and you can carry it easily to a new place.

The tabletop can be removed so you can separately carry the tabletop and the frame for even more convenience. This makes it an ideal choice for those who are always on the move.

Simple assembly

Simply place the removable tabletop on the open metal frame your desk is ready to use; no tools are needed. This saves a lot of time and effort. Easy to store

If you want to keep your desk away for safekeeping, you can do it easily by simply folding it flatly. The folding requires just 40 seconds.

Since the folded frame is securely flat, you can store the frame under the bed or in a corner in an upright position.

Sturdy

This desk can hold a maximum load of 250 pounds if you place it on an even surface, which means holding more than one monitor.  The tabletop is thick enough to withstand the load of computer accessories like speakers, mouse, and printer.

This can definitely hold all your equipment securely without wobbling.  Just make sure that the load is evenly distributed on the shelves.

Cons

Lacks extra keyboard tray

Although this desk offers a specific storage for the CPU, it comes without an additional tray for the keyboard. If you do want a specific keyboard tray, you can choose other brands like Best Choice Products Wood L-Shape Corner Computer Desk.

Faulty locking mechanism

Some customers have reported fault in the main part which locks the 2 pieces together.  This could be due to shipment mishandling. To avoid this kind of problem, choose a desk that requires no locks, like Walker Edison 3-Piece Contemporary Desk

Sharp edges

The sharp edges of the desk could be uncomfortable. This is expected since the tabletop is made of plastic.  Select the desk that has wooden tabletop such as Best Choice Products Wood L-Shape Corner Computer Desk.

Comparison with other products

The Origami RDE-1 Computer Desk is preassembled which makes it easier to setup than Best Choice Products desk.

However, the Origami comes without keyboard tray and shelves which are offered by Best Choice Products desk. The Origami uses particle wood while the Best Choice Products uses pure wood.

The Origami RDE-1 Computer Desk and X-Elite Pro Height Adjustable Sit/Stand Desk have easy assembly because both are preassembled. However, the Origami has a larger surface area and maximum load capacity.

On the other hand, the X-Elite Pro offers a unique feature of converting it into a standing desk while Origami desk can be folded for portability.

Verdict

Origami RDE-1 Computer Desk is a perfect choice for those who are always on the move because its lightweight foldable frame is easy to carry anywhere.

Despite its light construction, it is sturdy enough to support 2 monitors and other accessories and suitable for gaming and office work. This is recommended for those students who want a budget- friendly desk that offers functionality at its best.
