  • lovely desk, imperfect piece, dealing with it.

    The desk is perfect size, height & space for my son who is 6'4" & strong. Think linebacker :) This was a birthday present. He received it & was excited to put it together, but found that the holes drilled for the runners did not line up appropriately to allow smooth drawer action. Disappointing.

  • Altra Astute Desk and File Cabinet

    Product was packaged well, no damage upon arrival. There are some blemishes in the finish on the desk top, but nothing too bad. When assembling, take your time and pay attention to the drawings. Some drawer parts were mislabeled! Also, use a carpenters square when putting the units together. If the main parts aren't square, the drawers don't close properly....in this case, you get what you pay for!

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Actual color is more brown and less red than photo shown...but pleased with it as is.

  • Impossible Drawers

    The desk looks nice aside from the drawers. They were impossible to assemble and are not functional. They are crooked and you can tell just by looking at them but I've taken so much time trying to figure out the problem that I've given up. Disappointed.

  • Drawers do not fit hanging files!

    1. My unit was damaged when I received it. - A small dent on the top surface of the desk, which I didn't mind too much. - One of the drawer slide rollers was cracked in half so it doesn't work properly. 2. The file drawers do not fit hanging files. I use file folders with tabs so I can label my files. I think just about everyone does this. Anyway, the file drawers do not have enough clearance for those tabs to be sticking up above the top of the hanging file. I cannot put any of my files in either the desk or the file cabinet because the drawers won't close. This product literally does not do what it is designed for.

  • Not Perfect but Good Buy

    You will need almost a whole day to assemble these. I read alot of the reviews before buying. It's very sturdy, kind of a pain to assemble but for the price, well worth it. Looks nice, the file cabinet was perfect but the desk was scratched and not in that great of shape but not bad enough to send back. Very good buy for the price. Everything works, drawers glide fine. I would definately buy it again.

  • Not worth the money or time

    Awful piece. Holes did not line up correctly with dowels. Dowel was too long to fit tightly into holes so this file cabinet would not ever be able to be connected correctly. The pieces that were made of wood were sturdy and probably would look nice when assembled but because it would not stay together, i have to return it. There were many, many pieces with this file drawer and it will take a lot of patience to assemble. I do not believe it is worth your time or money.

    I was so hesitant to buy because of the other reviews, but I absolutely love this desk. Husband put it together and said it wasn't too difficult. It looks just like the picture...a lovely espresso finish. Very stylish. Great value. Highly recommend it!

  • Didn't come in pristine shape

    I liked this product and it's style. It came in fairly decent condition but one peice of the cart had a crack in it and there were scratches on multiple parts of the item. It is a great style and size but trouble with shipping. It also was very simple to put together. Took some time but not complicated as long as you read the directions.

  • DO NOT BUY!!!!!

    Do not buy this desk and filing cabinet set. I am so disappointed and wish I could get my money back. First of all, Overstock sent the desk without the filing cabinet so we had to wait for it to arrive separately. Secondly, the desk came damaged with a VERY noticeable dent/hole in the top. I could have gotten over these details if the product was even remotely worth the money. The bars in the drawers that are supposed to hold up the folders do not stay up. When you are finally able to line up the bars into the holes long enough to put in file folders then you can't shut the drawer. Its ridiculously poor quality and now i'm stuck with a non-functioning desk and filing cabinet. The ONLY saving grace is that they are decent looking pieces. DO NOT BUY!!!

  • Elegant!

    The furniture looks far more valuable than the purchase price would indicate. It arrived in very good condition and was very well packed. Assembly instructions were clear and easy to follow. It did take approximately 2.5 hours to assemble. We are completely satisfied.

the back part broke and I had to screw it together canuk57 on Jul 7, 2013
 
Hello phyl7, MDF is an engineered wood product formed by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibers, often in a deliberator, combining it with wax and a resin binder, and forming panels by applying high temperature and pressure. We apologize for the confusion as to weather the back of the desk is finished. We are working on getting clarification on this information.

Can the filing drawers be moved onto the left (opposite) sied? lauren0615 on May 12, 2013
Subscribe to Answers
Answer This Question

Thank you lauren0615 for the question about the Altra Astute Single Pedestal Desk and File Cabinet Set. Unfortunately according to the manufacturer the drawers are for that side on this unit only. We do carry a very large selection of desks with the drawers on the left side so that may be another option. We hope that was helpful and thank you for shopping Overstock.com. overstockcustomercare1 on May 16, 2013
 
 

We received this product and discovered that one of the drawers was assembled incorrectly by the manufacturer. We have the whole desk assembled except this one drawer, and it was delivered more than 30 days ago so we can't return it. Will the manufacturer send us just the one drawer that is defective? ewhiting on Apr 4, 2013

How wide is the opening for the chair? What's the width between the inside of the left leg and the drawers? And what's the height up to the bottom of the keyboard tray? patrykp on Dec 13, 2012
Subscribe to Answers
Answer This Question

Desk dimensions: 23.6 inches long x 47.5 inches deep x 30.25 inches high File cabinet dimensions: 18 inches long x 21.5 inches deep x 24 inches high So, let's do the math: 47.5-18 = 29.5" wide (see as erroneously described deep) 30.25 - assumed 3" for keyboard tray = 27.5" high even if it is 4" for the keyboard tray, it would be 26.5" ample space. My son is 6'4" and is very happy with the size of the leg opening :) dawncerise on Mar 5, 2013
