Great desk once you put it together. It took about 2-3 hours for the two of us to put it together - however it was worth it. It looks great in our computer room, is large, durable and is exactly as described.

This is a large and sturdy work bench/desk with 3 storage drawers. Assembly was quite easy and the instruction manual was well written. It took me about 2 hours to assemble and I would recommend this item for those looking for a large (5' wide by 30" deep) workspace.

I just got this desk in the mail yesterday and love it! The packaging was great - lots of foam and fillers to ensure the desk didn't get damaged, and the $3 shipping from Overstock was great. This desk was very easy to assemble, an allen wrench was provided, and all we needed to do was screw the four legs to the top of the frame - no drawer assembly required. It took us about 15 minutes. There were no scratches on the exterior of the desk, I only noticed a little bit of white paint on the underneath, not a big deal. All in all, would definitely recommend as a small-medium size desk if you're just looking for something to hold your laptop, or to study on.

This desk is quite handsome after being put together - refined and modern looking. My only complaint was with the assembly directions. They were in very small print, making it not only hard to read but hard to determine what predrilled holes certain screws went into. The drawer slides were confusing because there was a definite right and left side which was not mentioned. The person who assembled it had lots of experience in this type of work but thought the directions were not that user friendly. It took about 3 hours to assemble but I am happy with the desk. It looks great in my room. I would not recommend this as a first "assembly" project.

Thios was a complete waste of money and time. Putting this together was not the problem. The problem was that once together the drwaers did not match up nor slide well. DO NOT BUY.

I bought this desk for my 18 year old daughter's room make-over. We are transitioning her from teen to adult bedroom and she is using the table as a make-up table. It is very good quality and a very good size desk for the price. The desk is fairly heavy so you need help carrying it. The desk was very easy to put together. It took mom and daughter about 45 minutes. When the box arrived it had a few nicks so I was very concerned that the desk would be damaged, but it was packed very well and the packing material had absorbed the impact. I am so glad that I bought this desk. Absolutely love it. I think she will get a lot of use out of it in the years to come.

A very pretty desk. My granddaughter helped me put it together and she loves the way it looks in her room. All went well until we got to the middle drawer. We never did get it assembled correctly, but it looks and functions OK. The fit of the pieces was a little off. We gave up and abandoned one piece. It remains to be seen how long it goes before that missing piece begins to cause a problem with the drawer.

We received the desk and console faster than I could believe. My husband spent an entire Sunday putting the items together. The directions were not the best but he succeeded. One of the last items to put in place was the desk top. Unfortunately there was a crack in the top. He couldn't believe it. I contacted Overstock by chat. They were fabulous. All we could think about was having to disassemble the desk and send it back. They took the information and kept me informed daily as to what we would need to do. After about 3 days they told us they were replacing the desk top and we did not need to send back the other top. What a relief. I highly recommend using Overstock. They were great to work with when you have a problem. Granted, I haven't seen the top yet but I'm sure it will be here soon.

Really like this desk for my laptop computer! The Quality isn't real good though Black laminate chipped on legs when delivered. Drawer is small but I knew this. Very disappointed with how the Laminate comes off though.

This is a great desk! It's sturdy, big, and looks great. I don't usually write a review on products but I think this desk is worth it. WARNING: this desk will take you at least 3 hours to put together. After saying that, the directions are spot on. They are extremely organized and professional. I was never lost while putting the desk together, it just takes a long time to do it. Overall, buy this desk. It's great.

This is the fourth desk I have bought from O and it is the best. The desk is solid wood, well made, sturdy, and super easy to construct. The color is slightly darker than pictured. The desk drawer is not as sturdy as the desk. It is small and does not slide well, but I knew that from the photo. Not sure why they call it a "3-drawer Writing Desk". It has 1 drawer. The overall quality and craftsmanship, desktop space, and value of this piece make up for the drawer.

This is a very well made desk. The wood is extremely refined and looks much more expensive than the desk cost. Only 3 pieces to put together and it looks great in my study. It was everything I expected and more. If you are looking for a simple but very well made desk, I would highly recommend this product.

We received the desk in the as advertised two heavy boxes. Looking at all the parts was very intimidating but my husband took his time and was very slow and methodical about putting it together. He completed the task by himself (not necessarily recommended) and it took about 3 - 4 hours. The desk looks GREAT! The color is Halifax brown which is darker than I thought it would be but is perfect for our home office.

Overall great, beautiful color, but arrived with two small scratches. It was well packed, came in two separate boxes. Took 2-3 hours to assemble, and at times needed 2 people as it was tricky to align dowels, but overall not too difficult. Drawers are small but slide well. Big work space.

Excellent desk made of real wood - no laminates or veneers! Extremely high quality. Highly recommended. Very solid and heavy once assembled. Perfect for a home office or study!

This is a great sturdy, high quality looking desk. I only have a couple of complaints: The assembly! Yikes! Took something like 3 hours. I couldn't believe all the pieces there were when I opened the box. Not to mention, the instructions are not very clear. I noticed I had extra screws left after I was done so I went back through the instructions trying to find where they were supposed to be used and saw that I should have put them in before I put the top on. Ooops. Also, the keyboard tray was not right. The wood seemed like it was too long on the ends, causing the flap/front of the tray not to stay up when you closed it (I think others have commented on this). I ended up removing the front flap (unscrewing the hinge), drilling new holes for the hinge and repositioning it so it would close all the way as it should. That was also a pain! All in all, you can't beat the price. Looks like an expensive executive desk.

I've been buying poor quality Ikea-grade desks and furniture for too long. I was tired of stuff made from particle board and what not. While this was not initially in my price range, I always know you get what you pay for and i wanted a desk that was gonna last me a while. I also wanted to have a little bit of storage so draws were crucial. The desk came in 2 different boxes. Assembling it definitely took a little while (tip: have someone around to help you put the top on the desk. Doing it along is kind of difficult. Its possible, but you will certainly break a sweat.) I had a power screw driver and assembly took about 3 hours. Once its together, It looks damn gorgeous. The instructions were easy to follow too. I'd say the only drawbacks were that the packaging contains a million pieces of styrofoam and putting the top of the desk on by yourself is tough. But I can totally let all of that slide based on the fact that this thing is a steal for the price and quality. Fed up with low quality ikea/walmart/target desks? Fork over just a tiny bit more and get this thing. Seriously feels like it should be $800 or something.

First of all this desk is amazing! Large and in charge. There are not many desks out there that have room for a pc and can double as a writing desk. Usually if you have a computer desk you won't have room for studying/paperwork. And if you buy a writing desk there won't be room for a computer. This is a perfect hybrid. My pc tower fits perfectly on the bottom shelf, and if you have a larger than normal tower you can always leave one of the top shelves off and it will still look great. Everything is espresso including the screws so you don't have to worry about the holes, they blend right in. I followed the instructions to the T and it came out perfectly, not wobbly at all. It took me about an hour by myself and the only step that was a challenge was flipping the desk over at the end. That said, DO NOT ORDER THIS DESK IF YOU'RE EXPECTING IT TO BE PERFECT. It is so large there is no way it will arrive undamaged. Mine was damaged on 3 corners, not sure if UPS's fault or not. I actually have a hunch it was Overstock's fault because one corner has the part of the covering (veneer?) stripped away, no way it could have happened during shipment because the pieces would still be in the box. Luckily one of the three corners is only damaged underneath so because the desk is in a corner none of the damage is visible. If I were expecting to put this in the middle of say an office I would be highly disappointed and likely to return it. Of course CHECK THE TOP PIECE BEFORE PUTTING IT TOGETHER to make sure you can live with whatever damage yours has. If I didn't feel so bad for the UPS man I probably would have actually returned mine LOL. Some dimensions I think are important but not included in the description are: Space between lower shelf and upper shelf (to fit a pc): 15 3/4" Space between upper shelf and top surface: 6" Length & width of lower shelf: 23 1/4" x 17 1/4" Length & width of upper shelf: 19" x 15 3/4" Don't get me wrong I am in love with my desk very happy with it I just wanted to give a complete & thorough review to help anyone considering it! Good luck!
