I really like the style of the desk and everything is good except for the sliding rails for the bottom piece. The rails are so easy to bend that I was amazed. It was difficult to get the bottom piece slipped into the rails and when I did I bent the rail on one side and a few ball bearings fell out. I was able to put them back in and bend the rail back with my hand...I'm not kidding about it being very soft metal. If the rails were of much higher quality this would be a very good piece. It turns out to be very sturdy once you have everything in but during construction it made me worry but I was jumping the gun.

First time purchasing on Overstock. The product is as described, so no surprises with wood laminate. I placed my order on a Saturday and received it the following Tuesday. I was able to move the box to the 2nd floor on my own (about 100lbs.), but it would have been nice if I had help. It took me a couple of hours to put together. As someone else mentioned, the directions could have been a bit clearer. Prior to completing the smaller sliding desk I looked at how the rails would slide in to get an idea once it was fully assembled. Note: Once you slide the piece in you must press a small lever on the side to be able to pull the rail out again.
The desk is what I was looking for. Something that can hold two monitors and support a laptop/keyboard at a separate level and not a laptop tray. I should be working from home a little more often!
this desk was really nice . It is very heavy and you need two people to put it together and move it. The only problem is I can't push the inner desk completely in still working on that. But other it is great.
Love this desk. It fits in my NYC apartment perfectly...doesn't take up much space at all, even when you pull out the desk. On the down side and why I'm not giving it 5 stars, it took a while to assemble and I wish the directions were a bit more clear. Had a problem getting the slide in portion of the desk part onto the track. It was the most difficult part of the assembling process. I had to actually get underneath it like a mechanic to get it on the track properly so it would slide under completely, and that was with the help of another person. Could not have done this alone for sure. Definitely a 2 person job, but other than that, it's great. Looks great and we love it.

Great 2-in-1 item for the price. I love the style of the table and such a plus to have the extra space. All the parts arrived in good condition and assembly wasn't too bad. I set it as a console table and when I need it, I pull out the office desk. When not in use, I have decorate pieces on the top shelf. Overall, it's fairly a nice table and love the design.
This desk is definitely a space saver. The smaller hidden desk is great feature as it has enough space to use for working. I am able to have a file tray and some office knick knacks on the top and use my laptop on the smaller one. Also it is great to have two levels to keep my drink on. Assembly took a little bit of time and some help to speed up the process. The instructions are somewhat clear, the illustrations show detail of where everything goes. The shipping was quick so no complaints there. I recommend this desk
I bought this piece for my sons room. It has an appealing option for space saving. When it arrived, the front had a huge chip out of the finish, the track the under study glides on does anything but glide and it is very wobbly. The instructions were written in code so it took more time than it was worth to put together. The drawer is not smooth upon opening or closing either. The screws that were already attached in the track were falling out and could not be screwed back in. Overall, I would go somewhere else to this an item like this. The concept is nice but the piece is garbage to say the least.
