This desk was the worst f*cking investment i have ever made. I took 2 hours to make the measurements perfect, and when it came time to insert the plastic fastenings, they bent and broke upon entering the wall. I highly advise that nobody ever buy this desk.

I like the size of the desk. It will be used in my 14-year-old daughter's room and I think it will be perfect. The only thing I don't like is that the drawer-guide is a thick piece of plastic which I don't think is going to withstand years of use. Time will tell.

Bought this desk for my son but one of the drawers arrived defective. There is a piece of plastic attached to the back of each drawer which serves to hold the drawer in place when the desk is placed upright. However, this plastic piece was detached from one of the drawers and had to duct tape it in place to prevent the drawer from sagging and dropping down. The desk is also too light; moves too easily when being used. Would use this desk only as a temporary budget fix.

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.

I bought this desk as the size was perfect. It was easy to assemble and it fits 'in' the closet so the computer is hidden away. Now the guest room is just that- a guest room. While a small desk, there is ample space for speakers, modem and printer. I gave it four out of five stars as it would be five stars had it been made of wood and not plastic.

The desk was delivered quickly and was very easy to put together. It looks great in my small-ish workspace. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five was because the plastic suctions attaching the glass to the frame came off, and while it did not make a big deal in functionality, it was a little of a pain trying to realign the parts. All in all, though, this is a really nice setup for the cost.

So I have been waiting for over a week for this desk to arrive. Yes, I was THAT excited for it. I compared prices from other sites for days and when Overstock sent me a 12% off coupon PLUS free shipping, I knew I had to get it! It arrived today and I immediately opened it and was pleasantly surprised by the sleekness to it. The shelves are black and it has a shine to it. Actually quite nice. Set up was a snap! Pulled it out of the box, brushed off the pieces of packaging still on it and it pretty much snapped into place. Had plenty of space for my laptop, speakers and even my huge Canon printer fits on the bottom stand. My only issue with the desk is the front plastic stoppers. One of mine was shipped broken. Not a big deal since the desk sits on carpet. If anything, they should make them rubber so others dont get it broken like I did. Or even just solid plastic since it was hollow in the center and I think that attributed to the breakage. Overall, I am ecstatic about the desk and it doesn't look cheap, nor does it take up much space. It's a great desk for those looking for something reliable and a space saver.

I love this desk. A computer, printer, light, and internet boxes fit perfectly with room to spare. I got a clear plastic covering to protect the beautiful wood. My daughter can also sit next to me and work on her computer at the same time. The only problem was the desk came without directions. I did get them emailed to me in one day. If you concentrate on them the desk can be put together in less than two hours. Other than putting it together, it is fantastic.

This is a well made desk and fairly easy to put together. I assembled it by myself in about 45 minutes. It was a little too big for the chosen area but due to its minimalist style I was able to pull it off. I would have given 5 stars except for the following. As with another review, my desk also had a chip on one corner, which I don't understand because this desk came well packed. The surface can get scratched easily and will show so I have to be extra careful. The plastic pad under the desk helps gliding the desk but will scratch wood floors. Overall, I’m very happy.

When this desk arrived we were almost afraid to open the packaging. However, in spite of it looking like it fell off a loading platform, there were only two minor "dings " one unnoticeable and the other can be touched up. The assembly went well by an experienced and talented person, but took 4 hours. A few screws were missing, which he had available at home. The styrofoam packing was crumbled and it looked like a snowstorm invaded my office/den. The drawers are dreadfully hard to close sometimes and we put silicone spray on the slide bars, and that helped a bit. We knew we took a chance ordering an item like this to be shipped (apparently from China), but it is entirely appropriate for our use. All and all, it is a nice product. I bought a clear plastic desk top to protect the flat top, so it should endure lots of use.

I took a chance on this desk after debating it with the other well rated 'student desk white' also available from O. The desk had no review, so I very reluctantly decided on it because if its more traditional classic style than the trendy modern design of the student desk. I was initially glad that the product seemed to be packed adequately, but a few [drawer] screws were loose and caused a few mars on the drawer panel. The product was assembled in about 5 minutes. Only the 4 legs had to be attached to the pre-assembled top along with the tightening of the drawer panel with the 3 screws along the latches. One 5/16 flat washer was missing for one of the leg assembly, but I luckily had one at home so please check your parts immediately. One of the biggest disappointments that had me consider returning the product was the back of the desk. Unfortunately O didn't provide the photo (why not?), but I was hoping that the top panel wood overhang detail would continue through the back, which it doesn't and the overhang is simply cut out to sit flush against a wall. This desk is obviously designed to be placed against the wall where the back is not intended to be visible. The back is painted white but it lacks architectural interest and it has a 2 1/2" diameter brown plastic cord guide in the middle of the back that can't be ignored or hidden, so I had to change my original plan and place the desk against a wall instead of facing the room. The white paint on the inside of the drawer corner and and the top panel corner is cracked/chipped already, so I'll have to touch them up along with the drawer panel mars. The desk is not pure white, but rather an ivory or bone white, which I was able to tell from the photo. The top indented decorative groove near the panel edge is carved roughly and you can see the incomplete paint job and chips along the grooves. The laptop drawer design is a plus where you can hideaway your keyboard or laptop along with your books and other supplies. I wish the drawer pulls out a bit more, but it only pulls out about 7", although the actual drawer depth is about 19 1/2", so the product description of "full extension drawer guides offer the full depth of the drawer as usable space" is wrong. With the drawer front panel open, the combined working space is 10" pulled out with the height of 25 3/4" from the floor. I am rating this desk a 4 star because I'm trying to be as objective as possible for people who may be interested in the product, and it may be a good buy for the people who don't intend on having the back being visible. I do like the way the desk shows from enough distance away, and I still think it looks better than the student white desk. I just hope that O does a better job at setting proper expectations with more photos and correct descriptions in the future.

the desk is in my living room and looks great.... the finish is a bit more plastic looking than i'd like... but it is a price performer... the color is black...you can't go wrong..

Overall this is a good desk but the quality is not that great. It comes with some plastic pieces that may break easily. Also, I don't like once thing about the design. You can see through the glass the holes in the bars, which is pretty ugly. I think it would be better if it had a white glass that you can not see through instead.

When the desk arrived,the top piece had been squeezed by the plastic strap that holds the box together. The front dedge hadbeen dented. My husband assembled as much as he could until another top arrived. That was a matter of only 1 week later! Fabulous service. This desk is being used as a corner TV stand for my bedroomin which it fits perfectly

Beautiful desk. Took about an hour for a handyman to assemble but directions and parts were well marked and he was pleased. Plastic cover that goes in the cord hole was broken but I called and they are sending me a new one. A few small pieces to put it together were missing but the man putting it together has some handy. Just wish it had a reasonably priced matching chair.

The product was exactly as pictured. The only thing that was somewhat disappointing was the plastic feet that are applied to each leg. They were slightly flimsy and the nut that screws them on was hard to get at with the little wrench provide with the desk. I got them screwed down by popping them of first and then popping them back on. Overall, it is a great desk computer desk with a lot of room. This purchase was for my son's new computer and I am thinking about buying another one for the home office. I might also note that it ships in two packages that might not arrive on the same day.

I like this desk a lot. The color is a bit darker then I thought it would be. For some reason, the picture appears more honey colored but it works in my study either way. It is well built and appears very sturdy. I like that the desk top is big and has lots of work space. What I really did not like though is the packaging . As far as keeping the product scratch free, it was great, however there was excess plastic and styrofoam and made a huge mess upon opening the box. I ended up with three large black garbage bags full of packing......really excessive and wasteful. The product itself though was worth the money.

It was delivered timely and as promised. Assembly was easy. The reason I did not give it 5 stars was that one of the legs had a small scratch in the paint but since it was in an area that it would not show I decided not to hassle to return it. The drawer is a nice size to keep items needed for studying and completing assignments. I did place a plastic desk top to protect the top from writing. The finish is adequate but I would recommend using a desk top as well as coasters for any drinks to protect the desk. For the price, this is a good everyday student desk.

This desk came well packed and in good condition except for a minor corner abrasion to the finish. Went together well - difficulty of assembly was about a 4 or 5 out of 10 (with 10 being the most difficult). Huge step up from the typical partical board, chinsy plastic faux wood finish units that seem to be everywhere. Overstock service and UPS tracking was superior.

We ordered this desk for my daughter and she loves it. We like that it is real hardwood and assembly seemed easy- screw in legs, bottom, feet, add decorative top. There are no written directions, just a sheet with pictures. The legs came with screws on both ends- not like the directions picture. Be sure to screw off the protective plastic and then screw the SHORT screw into the desk before anything else. Our biggest issue was with the decorative rail on top, the holes for the pegs were about 1/8 to 1/4 inch off so we had to use a special file to shift the holes. Overall, we are pleased and would recommend t.
