My home computer and work computer share the same L shaped desk so my desk gets a lot of daily use. I love my desk and want to keep it protected. Since this desk pad is so huge, it really covers a large area under my keyboards, calculator, desk lamps and all my trinkets. I eat at my desk frequently so I don’t have to worry about messing up the finish with my dishes and definitely don’t need to worry about a cup ring from my coffee cup. I love all the colors it comes in, but I opted for the black since it fits my desk décor the best. This is a very affordable pad vs messing up the finish on my $800 desk. I highly recommend this pad!
