There are some people that will advise you to never have a glass top computer desk. They have seen the horror photos of when a glass desk collapses with the computer still on it, and I will agree those are some terrible looking pictures. Nobody wants one of their great looking desks to collapse and ruin basically everything. But those horror pictures are the exception to the rule; they are certainly not what normally occurs.
The most important thing you need to do when purchasing a glass top computer desk is spend a little extra money. If you buy the poorly designed and cheap ones, the metal frame and glass can separate and cause a major problem. That glass is also susceptible to chipping or cracking, and damaged glass is very weak glass. Proper maintenance on a well built glass desk can eliminate all of those problems, and if it is a more expensive model that is well built, you should not have any of those problems to begin with. So in short, spend a little extra money on a high quality product.
Now the biggest reason it can be a great idea to purchase this type of desk is because of the look it creates. If you really want that awesome looking, modern style desk, why would you not choose a glass top desk? This type of desk gives a very modern vibe, and the metal frame can often come in different colors making it easy to decorate with. If you want to impress people with a cool looking desk, this is one great way to do that.
Plus, in all honesty these desks are dependable, as long as you are smart and buy a quality product. Like anything else, if you buy low quality products you are going to get bad returns in the end. Like I stated above, if you take care of the glass, if you check for cracks and dings, and if you do not smash it with heavy objects on purpose, you should have no problems with the quality of your desk. Plus with the way they make them today, you are going to have plenty of room for your desktop computer, and still have plenty of work space available. These desks are very nice, and will make a great addition to your home.
