    • Compact and sturdy

      This desk looks exactly like the photo. If you follow the instructions, it is fairly simple to put together, but it does have quite a few pieces. Looks great in the space.

    • Broken and missing pieces

      In theory its a great piece - arrived on front door and I was ready to put together but between multiple broken pieces and missing screws it's been a disaster.

    • Very functional

      nice piece for the money. It suited my needs. Cons- there were a few stratches on the pieces right from the box. Instructions easy to follow.

    • Great Functional Desk

      Love this desk for my sons room. Small enough to not be bulky, big enough for a monitor and laptop. I absolutely love how sturdy it feels and the little book shelves add a bonus to de-clutter.

    • Nice to have, hard to assemble

      I had a devil of a time putting this together. I don't have a problem with some assembly, but I felt I was manufacturing this thing. The holes don't line up well on the backing, but the rest went together finally. I hope having pieces left over was by design, not by my lack of skill. The assembly booklet leaves a LOT to be desired. Good video of the key fastener feature, though.

    • Just what I was looking for

      I'm a 58 year old woman, and I put it together myself, HOWEVER, the drawer was broken and that was the last thing you put together and take the plastic off of. After working on the desk for 2 hours, I was not going to take apart and send back. I have called and was told they would try to get me another one (drawer). I would recommend this desk to everyone, really sturdy.

    • Perfect Fit

      This desk is actually going to be used as a bedroom entertainment center. Its size, height and cubby hole features make it a wonderful addition to the bedroom without the bulky look of a "traditional" entertainment center.

    • this was neer really answered and I would like to know if this is possible as well - please advise It is possible to leave out a piece in the cubbies, in order to make a wider cubbie (for storing a wide item)?

      • Hello bnikkis23, the manufacturer does not recommend leaving out the cubbies. They provide the frame with more support and stability. Thank you for shopping with us! A.C.

      • I left the cubies out and mine is supporting a 40" television. Without the cubbies it looks larger and less intrusive.
