When I received the desk, I was happy! I opened it up and began attempting to put it together. I began running into problems from the start. The plastic pieces that you needed to attach to the legs was extremely hard to get the screws into the one hole due to the size. *unless you had abnormally skinny fingers* Installing the gliders for the keyboard shelf was the hardest as you need to have a screw driver that has a magnetic tip to keep hold of the screw. On top of those issues, when attempting to attach the legs to the shelves, the wood simply disintegrated! The only way to keep the screws in 95% of the holes was wood glue! Extremely poor quality and I'd not recommend this to anyone. It was not worth the price.

How accurate was the on site description of the product? Fair
This has to be the biggest pile of junk I've ever put together. The wood is like sawdust. The slightest pull or push of the desk yielded in the screws completely shredding the wood, leaving gaping holes in the wood that took wood putty and wood glue just to get the desk back together. I was completely floored at how easy it was to strip screws and/or pull them right out. (Damaging the wood)
The cheap plastic black brackets are horribly designs. It's easy to get one of the screws in, but the 2nd one is in a narrow part of the bracket and can be challenging to get the screw into without a magnetic tipped screwdriver.
While I did manage to get the desk together, it is by far the worst experience I've had in putting together something like this. I guess you really do get what you pay for.
First off, I will say I liked the look and price of this desk. I really wanted it to work since it wasn't a typical looking home office desk. However, the product was horrible. There were NO directions/building instructions in the box!! So I went online and tracked down a PDF from the vendors website. After 2 hours of trying to get these tiny screws into the medal frame (blister on my palm and all), I gave up. I am not a novice furniture builder by any means......this was just impossible. I wrapped it all back up and sent it back. Very disappointed.

Unless you get a better quality wood then I did, the answer would be no. Otherwise, yes.angelrose2 on Mar 27, 2013
