This desk is heavy and beautiful. My husband put it together and he said that the plastic pieces are flimsy. He said the bolts break easily with too much torque so be careful. This desk comes in two boxes and many pieces so be prepared to spend a few hours putting it together. I bought the mahogany finished desk and it is very beautiful.
Assemble this is the place that it is going to be used, because I found that it kind of starts to come apart in some places if you pick it up too much. I did everything right, but some of those cam bolts just would not hold the screws in place. The paint job is terrible (in some places there are small bubbles). It just looks cheap. However, if you can get it assembled, and don't need a fancy desk, than this one is okay. I agree with the one person...I would possibly recommend this to the right person. It is small enough for a small office space, and it does have a lot of features for what it is. So, it's okay, but not what I would call any great value.
This is not a high quality desk. The painted finish on it is pretty poor and there were a couple of minor defects in the wood (mine had a big ding in the edge of the desktop). However, for the price and the organized layout, it'll do. Assembly wasn't too bad, but it is entirely in pictures... no words, which I found a little frustrating at times. The pieces are well labeled and well packaged though. One word of caution... don't screw in the cam bolts too far or they won't lock in place! I said I wouldn't recommend it, but there should be a "maybe" category.... depends on what your needs are! For my small home office that's going to take some abuse, it is just fine. Good luck!
I've been looking for a small, modern desk with a file drawer for several months. Nothing seemed right until now. The desk was delivered in 4 days and in fantastic condition. It took 2 hrs to assemble, and the instructions easy to understand (pictures only). I wasn't sure about the CPU taking up legroom, but it's better than having a pile of equipment sitting around, and the modem and router tuck neatly away. Definitely another great value from Overstock.
I was looking for a desk with storage and at least 60" wide. This desk came close to what I was looking for. All of the parts were included and the desk was delivered in good condition. I"m a middle age female and I put it together myself (I just needed help putting the top on) so assembly was not too difficult. However, I screwed the file posts in too hard and now I have two dents in the front of the drawer. Clearer instructions or adding a metal cup would prevent that from happening. I will contact the company for a replacement drawer. Other than that hiccup, the desk is sturdy and fits my needs.

Great product. Came in two boxes. Start with box labeled 2 first. :) All the screws were labeled in individual bags so there was no confusion as to which screw to use where. All pieces were labeled according to the instructions. It even came with it's own little screw driver. No extra tools needed. I was able to put it together with no help. And it was solid enough for me to move short distance.

Basically happy with the unit. Took forever to install, love the nooks and crannies, some of the laminent/veneer is damaged or peeling but nothing major. NOTE ABOUT GLASS PHONE TRAY on top of desk. Did not install it because my monitor is rather large and to have it centered with seating area it would not quite fit with the glass phone tray thing. IF you do not wish to install it, do not poke the mounting screws through the holes of top of desk! (I did and now I have 3 holes that show where the tray should go).
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? As described
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Ok, but not great. Some of the veneer either arrived damaged or is peeling off in spots. Otherwise fairly sturdy.

Is the back of the desk finished? I am considering using it in a space where it would be facing into a room instead of against the wall.alijubilee on Aug 2, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The back is finished. Thank you for shopping Overstock.com; have a great day!overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 8, 2013
Thank you for shopping with us winograa. The panels are MDF (medium Density Fiberboard) which is a highly compressed wood resin, that makes the desk very heavy. The finish is a thin PVC laminate glued to the board, durable under normal use conditions and easy to clean with smooth soap & water.
