Nice desk with lots of room for computer-related items. Sturdy pieces, but you have to be careful with the glass when putting it together. It's a modern desk, but the great thing about it, it has those old school slots for compact discs.This desk forces you to keep things neat and tidy, just because it's clear and everything can be seen in plain sight.

I was looking for an inexpensive desk for my daughter that had style and was solid. This desk fit her need. We changed the knobs to clear glass and it really made the desk look more expensive and added a shabby chic look. When I received the desk I was a bit intimidated because there wasn't a part of the desk that did not have to be assembled. To my surprise it went together quickly (except for drawers).

I was hesitant to purchase a GLASS desk (I have kids-I did buy the accidental damage protection though!), but I needed an L shaped desk that would fit in a not-so-large room that wasn't super expensive. I loved that this desk had the shelf in the back, and it was the right size AND price, AND it had some good reviews, so I gave it a shot. When it arrived (earlier than expected by the way), I opened the box and got nervous when I had to assemble the whole desk with a little allen wrench. LET ME TELL YOU, I was SUPER IMPRESSED at how clear the directions were! EVERYTHING was labeled with stickers, so I didn't have to guess which screw was "part C" and which was "part A". I am a 40 year old woman, and BY MY SELF, it took me an hour and a half to get from opening the box to cleaning the glass on my assembled desk =) It's beautiful, it's sturdy, fits perfectly, and it fits perfectly!! I am so glad I bought this desk! I DO recommend it!

Ordering anything online involves a certain amount of risk as far as quality of the item or timeliness of delivery. It's hard to tell from a small picture exactly what you're going to get. I was very pleased that the item arrived in a few days and in perfect condition. Assembly was fairly easy, though the instructions could have been a bit more clear. I had it together by myself in about 45 minutes and am very happy with the desk. It is a solid piece of furniture with a modern classy look. The black tempered glass surface is very attractive as well as easy to clean. The desk looks terrific in my office and has enough surface space to satisfy most anyone. My initial reservations about ordering online turned out to be unfounded. The price was great, the delivery was cheap, and the desk... beautiful. I love it.

Purchased this L-shaped desk for the remodel of my minister husband's home office where he studies and writes sermons. Commissioned my two sons, ages 20 & 15, to set it up before I got home. Was extremely pleased, even more so when I told them to switch the sides so the long portion of the L was another way. This was accomplished with minimal effort and very little fuss. My husband was so pleased! Love the clear glass, the addition of having the monitor off the floor, more than enough room to have a table lamp, monitor and various office suplies and writing pads. Adds distinctive modern air to entire room!

This desk is a pure white which was hard to find. It was fairly easy to assemble, nice lines and a good size. I actually purchased new knobs in a clear glass, that make it look custom!

I was very please how the product was packaged and delivered. The instructions were clear and all the hardware and tools were provided. I was happy to know I could assemble the desk by myself. After I had it together I noticed the cracks in the finish so I took some photos and call customer support. I really didn't want to disassemble the whole thing and send it back. After discussing the situation with a very helpful agent and emailing the photos to to her. She gave me a discount on the product. And with the help of a Sharpie felt tip marker I filled in the cracks. I then bought a piece of glass to cover the top of the desk and you would never be able to see the flaws. I love my new work desk and was very pleased with the service from Overstock.com.

I needed to create a home office, but I didn't want to spend a lot of money. This desk was a great find! The glass top helps to keep my small office look more open. The only complaint I have about this desk is that the instructions were not very clear. Most of the desk was easy to put together, but I did have a little trouble with the keyboard tray. Once I finally got that figured out, the rest was easy!

My desk arrived in 2 days! It looks exactly like the picture and has even better quality than I expected. One piece of the glass did have a slight scratch on it, but it is still beautiful. I was able to assemble it by myself following the clear instructions, which makes it an user friendly assembly! I love this desk and it fits my contemporary office perfectly!

The desk/table is definitely white, a frosty crisp white. I somehow expected the glass to be clear. Instead, it has a white tint to it. The quality of the product was fine. It took me a little under an hour to put it together myself. Be mindful of the depth of the desk - -it is definitely deeper than I thought, even after using a measuring tape to get a sense.

From the looks of this desk on the website, I liked its very modern and elegant look. Package arrived quickly and safely, nothing damaged. After a 3 hour assembly, I was most impressed with outcome. From a far this table looks attractive and the espresso color accents any room nicely. The color also gives the reinforcing appearance of a desk that has a strong foundation, and it does, this desk is SOLID. I weight 220lbs and feel confident sitting or standing on top of the desk, it does not give, and does not shake. The sublte details of the desk are what really impressed me. You can't see it from the picture, but the frosted glass is trimmed with clear glass to denote edges. All of the glass top sides are also slightly curvilinear, giving it a sleek look, especially where one sits, the glass curves in slightly..nice touch. These curves carry over to the raised printer stand also, but I put my widescreen mointor on there instead and it looks slick, leaving the main desk open with lots of space to write and work. While the dimensions of the desk stated are true, they are for the widest part only, and actually tapers in at the edges thanks to the curves, making it looks slightly smaller than what I expected, but that worked out perfectly. The keyboard tray under the table glides smoothly. I added a espresso pen tray on the side of the keyboard tray and not only is more functional now, but there is still plently of space for my keyboard to be on there, AND be centered on the tray. The magazine tray on the side is helpful in storing papars, magazines, external hard drive, etc. I get lots of compliments on this desk and am far move impressed with it in person that on the website. All in all, if anyone who is looking for a sturdy, modern, functional and attractive desk, this is the one for you.

The instructions are clear and ultimately it is a beautiful desk, sturdy and well worth the price. Assembly was difficult, due to some parts that simply weren't drilled properly. Two of the screw-in rubber feet would not attach. One hole I was able to clear by using another same-size screw with a power driver, then removing that and inserting the foot. The other was worse, I had to drill out the hole and then use teflon plumber's thread tape to snug the screw-foot into place. Fortunately, the weight of the desk will hold it in place firmly, and I didn't need to adjust the height of the feet. The rest of the assembly was pretty easy, and the gaps and height changes between the glass panels were easily alleviated by loosening the screws slightly that held the legs and cross pieces together, then tightening them after the fit was right. If you don't have experience with assembly and access to some good tools, ask for help on this one, but I am a 5'2" female and was able to assemble the whole thing in a couple of hours alone....with my trusty drill's help!

I usually only purchase things online after seeing lots positive consumer reviews. It is true, you often find the best deals here but are at the mercy of other's opinions. I loved this desk from the moment I saw it but it didn't have any product reviews to guide my decision making. To make things worse, it was glass and an oversized item which meant it would be a nightmare to send back if I didn't like it. Nevertheless, I took a chance and ordered it when it went on sale and I am so glad I did. It arrived in less than a week and was packed and protected wonderfully. This is my FAVORITE piece of furniture ever and I would absolutely pay full price if I ever ordered a second one. The legs have a semi distressed/ white wash finish but are clean and not so rustic that they wouldn't blend easily with any style. The tempered top is clear with a little grey to it and about 3/4" thick - it weighs a ton. This desk is just gorgeous, classic, stylish, expensive looking, etc - I can't say enough!!!

the keyboard tray appeared to be wider in the pictures. it easily fits my keyboard but not my mouse-pad. I find it easier to have the mouse right beside my keyboard, so it's cramped for me. may be others use their mice on the table-top. the build is good and sturdy. they could have easily used some metal end-caps for the horizontal support tube/bar connecting the two upright end posts (the curved X-shaped posts at the ends). the plastic end-caps with metallic paint look too flimsy when securing them onto the tube. the glass top is a delight! smudges and finger-prints are to be expected, but it looks quite elegant and yet simple! my earlier table was wooden and I had to struggle to position cables and plugs. but the clear glass makes that an easy deal! on the whole, this is a good product. the reason I gave it 4 stars is that I haven't yet fully begun to use this as my work space. it's in my home-office but I have been busy with my actual office and didn't have enough energy left in me after coming home to use this table. going by the initial looks and impression, it seems to be a good long-term investment. I just have to be careful not to scratch the glass-top!
