Desk is fine, I suppose. However, when you're assembling this, be careful...while screwing a leg to the top of the desk, I suddenly poked through the top of this desk and discovered that this desk--which as you can see is less than inexpensive--has a particle board-like surface. I was quite surprised and disappointed in that quality issue.
The desk took a little time to assemble but in the end was worth it. Make sure you don;t screw the lock screws in to far in the top as it will push them into the surface of the desktop, I assembled myself in about an hour and a half. It looks nice.
The quality is poor. I know it is an inexpensive piece but you have to be very careful or you will damage it. We were very careful when putting it together because you could see it was not high quality. When putting in one of the dowels it just went right through and damaged the top. I have covered it with the monitor. I would return it but I think it would be more trouble than it would be worth. The packaging was very flimsy. It looks good in the picture but it is not worth the money.
The order was shipped and received in a timely fashion. The box arrived totally crushed/damaged taped up all over ,with footprints on it (obviously UPS doesn't care too much what they do with their shipments). Possibly too heavy of an item for them. The desk would look nice if it had not been damaged. Although it is over priced for the quality. The desk top was totaly scratched and indented. I have called customer service for the company and they have told me they will send a new desk top. The other pieces have small marks that I colored in with a black marker as was stated in another review post. The assembly was fairly easy except for some holes missing, but since it's not hard wood , it was fairly easy to make your own holes. The draw closure does not fit very well, but it is mostly opened or has a chair in front of it and is not noticeable. Does fit nicely in the corner.
The directions were printed incorrectly AND some parts were made wrong. We called the desk company directly to get a replacement part and they sent us a whole new desk, which we then had to re-pack for pick-up by UPS...and it's still sitting on my front porch waiting. After talking to someone in assembly, they told us the directions were printed wrong and we had to swap 4 parts out to make it work. We finally got the desk together only to find out it wiggles whenever you type. It's definitely not worth the money but it at least looks decent, even if it's really not.
First of all, the desk is made of MDF and came in what seemed to be a million pieces. My husband was in the middle of putting the thing together when one of the legs split in two. This is not a high-end looking desk. The pieces look cheap right out of the box. This desk was begging to be returned and so, it was! Don't bother! PS - When you open the box, be prepared for an avalanche of styrofoam.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Same Color
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Horrible!
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? I somehow missed the MDF part - my fault!
Not worth the money! It took forever to put together and the top came chipped. I would pay $** tops for this!!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? good
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. VERY VERY CHEAP!
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? ok
What the product description didn't tell you is that the item is mainly MDF and has many screws which don't tighten the parts adequately. 3 of the turn screws broke which didn't help the stability but I doubt the desk would have stood up to long term use. The desktop is mounted last and the screws are too long and perforated the surface . I wish I had read the other reviews before purchase which mostly said the same. I opted to return the item as defective but had to completely dismantle it to do so.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Matched
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Poor
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The visual description is accurate
Over the years, I have ordered literally dozens of pieces of furniture that have required assembly, so I am not a newbie to this. And, with this depth of experience, I can say that the instructions for the assembly of this desk are quite lacking. This should have taken no more than 90 minutes to complete, but it ended up taking twice that long because of the misleading instructions. And, to add insult to injury, all of the black paint on the drawer had chipped off in shipping, revealing some type of brown composite material below. Not quite the quality that I was looking for, and, based on this first impression, I won't be buying furniture from Overstock again, as I am now skeptical as to the quality of the product that is sold on the site.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
- How is the quality of the product? Fair
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes
when I first started this desk project, I was pleased that all the bags of hardware and pieces of the project were labeled and clearly showed which parts to put together in a reasonable order.However after putting the right components together and then trying to connect them to the next set,I realized I had attached the first set backwards,which made taking them apart.Some of these componant pieces that were attached the wrong way weren't found out till the 4th set was to be attached,then none of it fit,and I had to back track to try and find the error.It got to be very frustrating,and at the end I had a bunch of dowels left over even tho I was careful to get each set of pieces put together correctly.The pull out drawer is still sitting on the floor in the office b/c we ran out of time. I would not recommend this desk-looks sturdier and better in the picture.
The workmanship of this desk is absolutely atrocious. Screw-bolts had to be tightened precisely; over-tightening caused them to move out of alignment with the rest of the furniture, snapping several bolt locks in an attempt to tighten them.The price is right and it looks fine when assembled. But what a pain.
I purchased 2 of these desks. I guess they're not too bad for the price, but had a few problems. The keyboard drawer door pulled off of one of the desks already which is going to require wood glue and extra hardware to reattach. There's really no storage space, so if you want something more than a place to sit a computer, this isn't your desk. There's a ledge that runs under the desk that you could sit stuff on, but you'd have to bend over a lot to get things in and out. I probably wouldn't buy them again.
The desk looks great set up, but it is hard getting it there! Piece C was machined incorrectly, so I had to call the manufacturer and get another piece C delivered. The desk was pretty tough to assemble and I was so glad when it was done. I really thought it would be wobbly and unstable, but it seems to be ok. Thankfully, it looks very good, so that is a plus!
This box came crushed. The product was a black table so there were white dings all over it. I took a black permanent marker to the table. I know I probably could have returned it, but the dings kept occuring as I put it together and when the table was finally assembled, it would have been too much of a hassle. The table was one of those assembly-type, which I'm fairly good at, however usually if you place a part backwards or upside-down, the screws don't fit. This was not the case, so it took quite a while re-doing it. The screws went right through the table on top, which is unfortunate. The table is brand new, but you'd never know it. I'd say the quality was worth the price, if all went as planned. The directions need to be more clear.
Not a bad desk...very space efficient. Mine came with a couple little dings but it seems sturdy enough. It wasn't incredibly hard to put together but did take a couple hours. I would say you get what your paying for...not a bad desk at all.
table is fine for what it is. especially if you consider there are not many choices out there for corner computer tables. It is however well overpriced for a prefab piece which may or may not go together without a snag. for example, I bought two of these. one assembled fine (had to ignore directions a couple times). The other did not, forcing me to reinforce parts of it.
This is a very attractive space saver desk, however, it's just not practical for a desk top. The bottom of the desk is completely open with nowhere for the wires to be hidden. It looks great in the picture with just a monitor sitting on top of it but once you attempt to hook everything up it looks terrible. Would make a better lap top desk.
