    • Write right!

      I needed a small desk to give me just a bit more work space in my home office. My current desk was filled with computer, files, etc. - I wanted something that would blend with current style and be a space where I could actually spread things out and work on them. It blends well with current décor, is sturdy, the perfect height, and the little drawer gave me added storage for handy access to pens, glasses, and so forth. It is just what I needed for this space.

    • Love this desk!

      I purchased this desk in black for my son and in white for my daughter. It was so easy to put together - it literarily took about 10-15 minutes because all you have to do is attach the legs! The drawer is already assembled and in its place. Some reviews talked about the wood being chipped but mine were perfect. The size is perfect for a small room - just enough space for a laptop, lamp, and homework!

    • Perfect for our needs!

      This was perfect for what we needed. We wanted a small desk for my husband's laptop, and it matches the desk I have for my desk top computer which we bought at a big box store some time ago. The people who wrote that the desk was wobbly, may not have assembled it correctly. And the person who wrote that they didn't know assembly was required obviously had not read the item description carefully. We knew it would need assembly; it only stands to reason. Also, for the amount we paid, the quality is fine. If we had wanted a $300 desk, we would have purchased one!! This will work out great for our home office.

    • Okay

      This was a quick purchase to have for an office at home. The quality is poor - I'll be surprised if it lasts more than a year. It's super cheap - but it's not made very well. I don't know why I would have expected more. If you're going to buy it as a desk for a kid - it's probably fine - but as a person who works from home, it's just not worth it. In hindsight, I would have purchased a more expensive, better quality piece.

    • Cute, but poor quality

      You really do get what you pay for. It is a very inexpensive desk and also not very good quality. One of the legs does not attach properly, but for the price paid, it hardly seems worth to go through the hassle of returning it and assembling another. Good for a short term need, but this is clearly not a piece of quality furniture that will last years. That said, it is priced very low - so 3 stars.
