  • 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.

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? excellent

  • 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.

  • perfect size, good storage

    After looking at several stores, this was one of the only desks I found that could fit the space I needed it for. The design of the desk is wonderful, the storage below the desk is very handy. I bought small baskets to fit in the shelves and not only does it look really nice, but I'm able to keep my stationary and supplies organized. The price of this desk cannot be beat. Assembly wasn't too difficult. I would recommend this item for someone looking for a small, light use desk with the added bonus of good storage space!

  • perfect desk for my needs

    I needed a desk to put in my large closet to use and hide all my crafting projects. Size was great; however, one piece came cracked. I was sent a replacement which came broken into 2 pieces. I jerry-rigged the first piece to work and love the finished product.

  • Decent desk

    This desk suits my needs, and I really like the cubby holes for underneath storage. It went together pretty quickly - pretty good directions, etc. It is not some premium quality piece of furniture, but really good value for the price.

  • Altra Parsons Desk with Bookcase

    Purchased it for my daughter who just moved into a small apartment. It works perfectly - perfect for a small work space and useful for its storage. The only negative is that it was difficult to put together. But once up, she loves it.

  • Nice, solid Desk

    This would be a 5 star rating other than we had a problem with one leg. The holes were not drilled properly, but the company, true to it's word, sent out a new leg in less than a week to replace the defective leg. So no major complaints there. The desk is easy to put together, it's solid and a great size for a bed room. I would definitely buy this desk again.

  • Huge *** not worth the money

    I was looking for an office desk that had a small footprint but still had a decent amount of storage space. After months of hunting around, I finally came across this desk that I thought was the answer to my needs. I immediately purchased the desk on overstock which arrived fairly promptly after a few days. I should have listened to my gut instincts about keeping the product when it arrived in my home in a box that was extremely beat up and nearly falling apart. But since I needed an office desk badly I spent the next couple of hours putting the desk together. Again, the misgivings started to arise as the very back of the bookcase did not quite line up with the frame of the desk but I still soldiered on as it seemed a minor inconsistency. So after several hours of hard work, the desk is finally out together. And it looks fine. A few days later, while sitting at the desk typing away, the drawer falls out of its slot for no reason. Luckily I caught it in time, preventing any serious injury. A few days after that, I'm in the bedroom when I hear a crash. Again, the drawer fell out of its slot for no reason. Most recently, and most upsetting, the drawer fell again for no reason but this time, I was unlucky enough that my hand was underneath the drawer at that time as I was reaching into the shelves of the bookcase and the drawer fell on my hand causing extreme pain and what I thought was a broken finger. Luckily my finger was not broken but is still very badly bruised. And no... The drawer is not overly filled. A couple of pens and a pad of post it notes is all that was in it. And yet the blasted thing keeps falling out of place for no apparent reason. At this point, I'm about ready to trash the desk entirely as I'm extremely frustrated with it - too big and bulky to have to break down and return. Save yourself the pain and anguish and get a product that is better made and not prone to falling apart for no reason.

  • Finally I have a desk that meets my needs.

    I had been looking for a desk with a bookcase and a small drawer. I settled on a couple of desk that just didn't work. I knew this was a inexpensive desk but I needed to know if this was the desk I had been looking for. Well it is. It was so easy to put together. When this desk wears out, I know I will have one made because the design is perfect for me. One thing I did do was have a piece of glass cut and set it on the top. Now it is perfect. Love it!
