    • Disappointed

      I was excited to receive this product as it was perfect, from a design standpoint, value, and for what I wanted. As a matter of fact I was going to buy another one for another room. Prior to buying I read the posted reviews but thought some pettiness was being conveyed so I ignored the complaints and ordered the desk. It arrived and out of the box three of the four corners of the desk were damaged beyond repair from shipment. After all it is only presswood and laminate. You would think that a Styrofoam corner or some corner protection could be introduced to the packaging...what would this have cost the seller? .75 cents? I'd have paid it. And this same complaint was on the review website...which I had previously as a one off. Now I just won't buy another one. Too bad, very nice design, good value, but who wants damaged goods? At any price. You can go to a garage sale for that.

    • Good design, not the highest quality

      I really like the style and design of the desk, and it fit perfectly where I needed it. Assembly wasn't very difficult as the top was already put together. All that's required is attaching the legs. There was a part of the top assembly that had a gap between two supporting pieces of wood, and that resulted in one of the legs being a little wobbly. With some difficulty, I got a screw in to try to hold the two pieces together, and it seems to have worked okay. I expect this desk to do exactly what I need it to for the next two years, but there's a good chance I'll toss it after that, assuming it's still in one piece.

    • Altra Parsons black oak laptop/writing desk

      The product (table) arrived quickly and undamaged. However, thats where the positive marks ended. The quality of the desk was poor and the wood used was compressed particle board. The size was perfect for my son's room but the desk will not last half a school year. The metal guide that holds the drawer is poor quality and does not open/close smoothly. The desk's legs do not sit level. I put a piece of scotch tape on the table to hold a piece of paper. Upon removing the paper (and tape), the tape took off the black paint from the desk. Whats up with that? Pass on this item. I would have shipped it back but the box was tossed out and it would have cost more to re-box it and ship it back.

    • no surprises

      This desk was as expected. Nothing too fancy but gets the job done as a small desk. I would recommend it for someone looking for a no frills desk.

    • Very disapointed

      The wording, Black Oak implies to me, oak wood. It was more like cardboard. Instructions said it needed two people to move it. Thats because of its composition, dragging would have possible destroyed it. Plus, it was packaged wrong. It required assembly and the incorrect pieces were in box. I returned it. Sorry, not for me.
