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
received desk with all parts and no damage. it was assemblied in approx.1and 1/2 hours. looks very nice good deal. only problem that i've noticed is that the pull out part for the keyboard sits a little to low- almost in your lap. but if i had a lot of typing to do there is enough space to move keyboard to countertop.
This desk, while heavy and solid, was very easy (30 min) to assemble. It fits in well with my room decor, and supports my computer needs (i.e., peripherals, disks, books, computer). I suspect it could have been less expensive on a site such as Overstock.com. Still, it's a very good value compared to what's on the market! Very satisfied!
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.
