  • Unhappy with product

    The item came in a box that was beat up and caused damage to a few of the shelves. However the thing that irritated me the most was the fact that not all of the parts came that were needed to connect the desk between the to bookends. The boards (c and d) didn't have the right holes cute in them to connect the center, as I said before I was unable to connect the desk section or the shelves above or below the desk. This really disappointed me as I have gotten items from Overstock that worked out great. I will think twice on which items I'm willing to take a chance on in the future.

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Yes
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Over quality wasn't all that great.
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? pretty accurate
    • Would you recommend this to a friend? No
  • Cute!

    The item is shorter in height than I expected. The color is definitely a rich shade of red. As for assembly, I would agree with the recommendation of using two people. As for the quality, one of the shelves - shelf O, had the holes erroneously drilled. I made it work by adjusting the position and angle. This defect didn't effect the stability of the unit once it was fully assembled. When assembling, follow the pictured instructions carefully; pay attention to the positioning of the boards and ensure use of the correct hardware. Tools needed - a flathead and a Phillips screwdriver. It took two hours to assemble.

  • Manufacturing defects - buyer beware

    I should have read some of the other reviews more thoroughly and taken them to heart. I, too, had similar issues with manufacturing defects. Boards C & D were milled improperly. Luckily, I opened the box carefully thinking I may have to return it if there were to be an issue. Thankfully, I listened to my intuition. I called Overstock, and the customer service representative was very helpful. He let me know he was unable to send replacement parts - something to do with the manufacturer - so I decided to return it - and he was very helpful in getting that all sorted. The only real inconvenience was trying to pack up the beast of a box once again. I have had great experiences through the years with Overstock - but this seems to be a common manufacturing issue. Overstock should remove this item to prevent any further dissatisfaction.

  • Disappointed

    Well this desk had a lot of potential, but is still giving me a headache. Apart from the time consuming construction; this piece required to me google search the manual, purchase pieces that were not found in the packaging including replacement cams because the ones provided were super cheap and the desk is still not coming together like it should. I'm highly disappointed in the functionality of this product although it looks ok. I'm still figuring a way to salvage the many atrocities that are this desk.

  • Works for me

    Looks very nice. I have the black/espresso, whatever they called it, it is true to color in the pic. not very tall and does not stick out very far into the room, the shelves are very shallow but the desk portion is about what you'd expect to keep a laptop and desk lamp. I'd check the dimensions carefully if you are concerned. Pretty good quality for the price, it doesn't seem like it will fall apart anytime soon and doesn't wobble. When assembling look at pictures carefully and check all sides of all pieces to be sure the configuration of the holes match the picture. Flip pieces over if not sure. If you follow this advice it shouldn't be too hard to put together, but it is a lot of screws. Use a screw gun to avoid hand cramps.
