My Thoughts on This Product

This month I relied on the help of my amazing coworkers to help me review the Quartet Glass Dry-Erase Desktop Computer Pads. They each have a computer pad, but one of them is white while the other has the black pad. This was able to give me a well-rounded view on the product from all angles.

My coworker, Alicia, has the black model of glass pad. The feedback I got from her about was really helpful. She said, “My black one is great to look sleek with my black desk accessories and monitors. I do love how the neon chalk markers are bright against the black glass board.” When I asked her about the storage capabilities, she said, “The hidden drawer is a nice feature to store the markers and other small desk items.”

With all the nice things she had to say, her cons list was very insightful! She mentioned that you HAVE to use chalk markers! With the white glass pads, they have the ability to use expo markers on them. Expos tend to be more accessible and don’t dry out as fast as chalk markers. Alicia explained that the “chalk dust shows up on the black glass board more…similar to computer monitors.”

Heather, my other coworker, has the white glass pad. She had plenty of nice things to say about her pad! “Like Alicia said, you can use the dry erase markers on these (white glass pads). I usually keep two different colored ones handy to make notes depending on what needs done first.” Heather is one of our fabulous Customer Service Representatives, so she has found a use for this product in her every day tasks.

“It is so handy to have in front of me when taking calls. Easy to jot down what I need to and NOT waste a ton of paper with post its. The white blends well into any cubicle space and the design is slim so it slides up under my monitor and out of the way.  While still staying conveniently available.”

She also added, “I do love the little drawer underneath, stores my dry erase markers really well.” With so many nice things to say, the only negative she had to add was that she, sometimes bumps it and accidentally erases things before she meant to.


Overall, they both really enjoy their Quartet Glass Dry-Erase Desktop Computer Pads. They have their pros and cons based on which style you choose, but the consensus seems to be a more positive one. Just based on their testimonials, I am planning on adding one to my own workspace!
