This black compact computer desk has been created to optimize your space for both hidden storage and open work space. It features a storage cabinet with two pull-out drawers, three shelves, and a keyboard draw that pulls out from under the desk top. ...more
This is a nice looking desk, however, the ONE part that came preassembled, fell apart. The tray for the keyboard kept fallng out of the tracks that were already assembled onto the desk so I decided just to leave it off and construct something later myself. The directions were also horrible. I could not tell what was supposed to go toward the front or back of the desk when assembling and they did not have the premade holes pictured well enough to be able to tell which direction to face the parts or assemble them together. I'm very good at furniture assembly, but had to disassemble and reassemble sections two different times. The keyboard tray was the final step so it wasn't worth unassembling it and sending it back.

I have a small home office that needed a small desk to save some space.
For the price, this desk is great. It's pretty heavy when shipped, and it looked like the shipping truck did a few roll-overs considering how banged up the box was- but the desk itself was undamaged. I was surprised how sturdy and solid this desk was, as I was expecting cheap wood and plastic. Overall, I'm very satisfied with the purchase.

All previous reviews are accurate, this is a DIFFICULT item to BUILD! Take a before and after picture, because once you finish the 3-hour minimal assembly process you will feel like you just climb Mt. Kilimanjaro. The directions are hard to read, especially when it comes to the "drawer rollers." You can sort of feel your way thru the rest. There are lots of parts and very little room for mistakes. They send you the exact amount of screws and parts. I really like the appearance... and it is what I was looking for. Just didn't expect the frustrating assembly job that's required. I was hoping the other reviews were mildly off, but they weren't. Beware of the ASSEMBLY HEADACHE.

I bought this desk to replace a clunky, drawer-less computer cart that I hated. I wanted a more streamlined look with storage and a surface I could actually work on but also needed something on a budget; I am good with directions so an assembly-required desk didn't intimidate me. That being said, it took 6 hours to put the desk together and part of that is because there are so many little parts and the directions are not always clear. The diagrams in particular can be muddy and it was sometimes hard to understand which side of which part should be pointing in which direction.
After the challenge of putting the desk together, the final moments came and it was time to insert the drawers and put in the keyboard tray. The rolling mechanisms (gliders?) for the bottom drawer are SUPER sticky as is the keyboard tray. The top drawer rolls in and out smoothly but I have to hold the desk in place while opening the bottom drawer with extreme force. There also appears to be no way to remove the bottom drawer now that the entire thing is assembled without taking much of the desk apart. The keyboard tray does not roll out enough to use it as a laptop surface, though laptop storage on the keyboard tray should be fine.
All of this being said, the desk looks much better than the old one, provides plenty of workable surface, and there is plenty of room to store things out of sight - there is even a lock on the top drawer for security purposes. I hope to fix the sticky drawer situation but if it's not able to be corrected, the bottom drawer can always store things that I do not need constant access to.
If you are on a budget and have the time this is not a terrible choice but I'm sure there are better desks out there for just a little bit more money that would be quicker to assemble and whose drawers would work the way they should.
Desk have very poor plastic covers. Already came off before we even took out of the box. We would NEVER recommend anyone to buy this products.
It may look very professional in the pictures but .......no good
The assembly isn't bad if you enjoy puzzles! I did it by myself but a extra set of hands would have made things a whole lot easier. What is really important is follow the directions in order, if you try to put a part together out of step it will come back to haunt you later! Once together you'll be amazed at the work area you receive by a desk that takes up very little space in a room! I couldn't be happier!
Took us a bit more time to assemble this desk than we expected. Directions could be clearer. We needed help from other family members to put this desk together. Now that it's done, we are pleased with our purchase. The only mistake we made was the area to lock the file cabinet was put on reversed so we are unable to lock the cabinet. We definitely will not be disassembling this desk to fix the mistake. The desk is of decent quality and sturdy enough to hold all of our computer components.
