Excellent value for your money. Minimal assembly - the top comes fully assembled, you only attach the legs. The hardware is sturdy and well-installed (helpful that this assembly is not left to the purchaser). I was very surprised at how thick and heavy it was given then price I paid for the product. The only imperfection in the design is that the surface of the desk, when opened, has to rest at about 182 degrees or so (just past a flat 180 degrees) in order to take advantage of resting flush on the pull-out supports. I imagine over time this might pull on the hinges but that strain is not evident currently.

I needed a secretary style desk for my kitchen to house my laptop and control the papers that seem to constantly clutter my dining table and kitchen counters. I ordered this desk because it was hard to find a desk of this type in black for such a reasonable price. The desk came yesterday and I put it together today in about 25 minutes--all I needed to do was attach the legs to the table with the enclosed wrench and I was done. I'm very impressed with the quality and appearance. However, I do want to note that while the description of the hardware said it was brushed nickel, leading me to believe it would be a silver color, it's more of a brushed brass with undertones of yellow. Other than that, I am very happy with the purchase so far!
Very sturdy, compact desk. Large work surface when open, stable and solid even when you lean on it, and surprising amount of storage in desk top (I put small baskets for frequently used items, kept drawer for extra supplies since you can't easily access that when lid is open). I put it behind my couch like a sofa table, so I can open and do bills while I watch TV-- it's a little deep (18") for that, but the narrower top makes it look less so.
Work surface is fairly high-- I actually sawed off about 2.5 inches from each leg (detached them first) to make total height the same as my low couch back, and to lower the work surface to a better laptop typing height with the chair I'm using (test it out *with chair* you'll use before cutting!)
Super easy assembly, just attach the legs (hex key supplied), desk part and slant lid come pre-assembled. I did have a slight misalignment in the folding top, where there are rubber nubs and slots in the slant top lid on each side that the nubs fit into when you fold it up. It was operational (nothing I would have returned it for), but made the seams uneven when pressed closed snugly. That slight aesthetic issue bugged me (most people wouldn't notice), so I solved by cutting the slot a little larger myself, so it looks perfect when closed now

I wanted a small desk in a dark wood tone for my living room and this desk was perfect. I also ordered the ebony Pasha dining chair on casters to go with it. The two are a good match, both in style and color. My husband put the desk together, which consisted of attaching the legs to the desktop. I unpacked and put the chair together, which also consisted of attaching the legs. I am very please with both products and have had several compliments on both.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color shown on the website is very "true to life".

I love this desk. In addition to perfectly matching my other pieces of black wood in my apartment, it's very compact and clean looking when closed, but when open provides a great amount of space for papers, laptop and accessories, and office supplies. The desk surface feels very stable when I work on it. I keep a pendaflex filing cabinet under it for additional storage. Also, it's about the easiest furniture to assemble -- you basically just screw on the legs! Highly recommended.
Bought this for my son and his fiancée. They are very picky and they love this desk. I know it took a while to put together but the fiancée did it with little background in carpentry. She's thrilled with it . It's much roomier than I thought and yet looks small and unobtrusive in their room. I think the design is quite elegant.
I like this desk. It is exactly what I was expecting. My only complaint is that it has a "varnishy" odor coming from it. So far it has been assembled for 4 days and the odor has not gone away. Otherwise it is worth the money.
We ordered this piece so we could have a place to organize mail and pay bills. This piece is solid and easy to put together. The dark wood is a nice look as well. This is of good quality and definitely worth the price.
