I ordered 2 of these desks with the matching upper hutch unit. They were fairly easy to assemble (according to my husband) but after they were set up, it wasn't long before they began falling apart. I wouldn't recommend this for an adult either - too short and you can't get your legs underneath comfortably (just FYI). Keep looking for another computer desk and save yourself the headaches.
I really wanted to like this desk. I really tried to like it. I bought it for my home office. Once assembled (fairly easy), it was smaller than I had envisioned, and just looked cheap. No matter... we put it into my 9-yr-old daughter's room. After a few days, it started displaying its flimsy characterics. We decided it just wasn't worth keeping. As we dismanteled it, it actually just fell apart in our hands. Out to the kerb it went!
I felt the price was a little high for a vinyl wrapped pressed wood product but the quality is very good for that genre. It was packaged very well so there was no damage in shipping. Assembly took a little over 30 minutes.It fits what we were looking for for my son's room and he is very happy with it.
The desk seems sturdy, my only complaint is that the pull-out shelf where the keyboard sits is kind of low, when you pull it out it is pretty much on your lap. This is annoying to me because I like to sit with my legs crossed or criss-crossed in the chair and I cannot, even with my chair on the lowest setting. I got the black and it looks very sharp and expensive.

This desk was easy to assemble and overall looks very nice in our office room. It has a very nice finish and is clean cut. The only thing that I did not like was the fact that is was not real wood, although it looks like it from the picture. Overall though, I think it is a great bargain, and priced reasonably.
This is a great desk that fit a smaller room that I have. I gave it 4 stars because the keyboard tray is a little low for taller people. My husband has to sit pretty low in his chair to use the tray. The top is great for spreading your work out. Assembly was fairly easy (1 hour with 2 people).
I purchased this desk with matching hutch for my home computer. It was everything that I thought it would be. I received it in 7 days (one day less then promised) and we put it together with no problems. There was one broken piece on the floating hutch but we called and they sent out a replacement part right away. Overall great value for the money.
This desk is a great value for the cost. It's a good size, and sturdy. Only thing is, like the other reviewers have said, the keyboard tray does sit low. Requires a pretty low chair (or just not to use the tray, which is what I decided) in order to function. But the top of the desk is large enough where you could put the keyboard on there, and use whatever size chair you want - minus the keyboard tray :-)
one of the shelves sticks out in the back. It's not even with the other. The pull out shelf for keyboard is so low that I cant get my chair in close enough. I just had to take it off. I am not happy with the way this desk was cut out.

Desk is well made and assembly was easy. One shelf in the side is adjustable so that's very handy. I liked the desk so much that I bought a second one for my fiance, and I bought two of the overhead hutches that match. Now we have a great looking office area!
