We received this desk and my husband assembled it, taking a little over an hour. It looks good, it has good work space and adjustable shelves. I just needed a small desk for my laptop and printer so that I can have space to work on my college courses and this fits the bill.
The Sonoma computer desk is AWESOME if you are looking for a sexy, inexpensive and clutter free piece of furniture. If you need drawer space, I suggest looking at a different style desk or possibly a file cabinet in addition to this purchase. The wood is not the best quality, but I couldn¿t pass up the price.
We bought this desk to match the other Sonoma bookcases we'd previously purchased. As with the other units, super easy to asemble. All hardware perfectly labelled and adequate quantities. High quality metal hardware provided for keyboard shelf glides.
The desk is functional, but the back of it is completely open and all the unfinished edges are exposed. The desk has to be against a wall or have something behind it to hide this. It is just ok for the money--your standard fiberboard-and will be ok for my needs.
I was pleased with this desk and my daughter loves it! It is a simple design, making it easy to assemble and longer lasting with less things that could break off if more were added. Our purpose was for a special needs child (11.5yrs) with behavior issues in a residential school. So, it had to be safe, sturdy, simple design yet functional to accomodate her new Emachine computer. It could not have been more perfect. The school and staff approved of it and see that my daughter is very happy with her new desk and computer set-up! Thank you because it could have gone the other way! Great product! I plan on getting another one for home use. A very happy mother
Overall, the Sonoma computer desk is a nice product. It looks very classy, is sturdy and roomy. Like others mentioned, the keyboard tray is lower than usual, so if you are tall, you might find this aspect annoying if not completely unusable for you. I was pleased with the overall quality of the desk and it wasn't hardest item to put together. I've assembled many, many prefab items before, and this desk was a little nearer the more complicated end compared to others, but if you're experienced in assembling these things, you shouldn't have a problem. TWO TIPS: Have a rubber mallet on hand in addition to a hammer. You have to hammer on the accent pieces, and a regular hammer will simply not do. Also, have a battery or electric screwdriver on hand as using a manual one will tire you out in about 10 minutes with the level of driving screws in this product.
The product came not as shown in the picture. The product came with defective parts and short some screws. The company did send the defective parts but it took an extra 2 weeks. In the picture it shows a shelve above the desk their is no shelve. I am not very happy with purchase. In fact I might not buy again from Overstock.com
Fairly easy to put together and it looks great. I'm a little disappointed in that the keyboard tray is too low for someone of my height (6'1/2"). I can live with it, but I don't think anyone over 5'9" would be extremely comfortable with the level of the keyboard tray. There's no reason why they couldn't have raised the tray another inch. Anyway, great buy, very satisfied.
Purchased the black computer desk, arrived in nine days (not bad, since it was shipped from western Canada and had to clear customs). Well packaged (box within a box) and arrived undamaged. Supplied was a marking pen to cover any blemishes, wish were virtually unnoticeable. Assembled very easily, was done in less than an hour. Just wish the sliding drawer was a bit deeper or had a backstop, fear my kids will push the keyboard onto the floor someday. Thinking of buying the matching wall-mounted hutch, although $85 is a bit high for an accessory to a $140 desk. I would definitely recommend this desk, great value compared to what I've seen in the stores. This was my third purchase from Overstock, very happy.
I ordered the desk because of it's compact size and excellent price. I love the look and color of the desk. Unfortunately, the package shipped from British Columbia, Canada clear across the U.S. to Rhode Island. This long trek was not kind to the box. One corner was damaged which dented 2 pieces of the desk. Luckily most of the damage is not noticalbe on the assembled desk. But there is one scrath on the front that needs to be covered. This is the 1st time I received damaged goods from Overstock. I will still order from them because of the convenience and reasonable shipping cost.
I purchashed this desk, nite stand and chest for my sons room i am very pleased with it. i love the fact that most of the conections screw togther. this make all items very sturdy. worth the money. the desk did not come with instructions, but because Iput the nite stand together first putting the desk together was easy.I had a good time. this product is great to update a teenagers room
