    • Using this as a vanity

      I don't imagine it would work well for an actual desk if used regularly. The quality is as expected for the price. It looks nicer than it is and has been great for my vanity over the last few weeks. I have it on carpet and it is not wobbly. Bit of a bear to put together but I was able to do it by myself. The stickers provided to cover the hardware work well and blend in nicely with the piece.

      Packaged well for shipping, except for instructions to assemble, One call to Overstock and full assembly instructions were emailed. As stated in other reviews assembly is not easy, and is very time consuming, unless you are familiar with assembling furniture. For sale price good value! Be familiar with the cam lock instruction page...that was hard to figure out. MUST HAVE TWO PEOPLE TO ASSEMBLE AND CARRY. Perfect for your laptop and printer in a small space.

    • Bookcase/ Writing Desk

      I only opened the box to see that the color was not true to the picture - it was almost black. I sent it back. Fortunately, Overstock accepted the return.

    • Desk of a million pieces comes together well.

      I don't think I have ever received a box that had as many pieces and/or hardware as this desk/bookcase. I opened the instructions and one of the only sentences on the page was that two people are necessary for assembly. I planned on assembling the piece alone because I live alone -- I wish it had said that on the website! All that being said, three evenings later I had the bookcase/desk put together and it works well. All of the drilled holes and the hardware do not match perfectly but they match well enough and any screws that don't go all the way into their place are not visible. The piece is sturdy. I would only recommend this to a friend if I told him/her about the building process, and maybe I would offer an experienced hand as well.

    • good for a small space

      We got this for my teen's room, because we needed to organize a study area in a small space. This will do the trick, but it is barely large enough for a laptop. The shelf space is also limited in terms of the books and materials that she can store on it. But, all in all, it will work for the space and it LOOKS good!

    • You get what you pay for.

      It is self assemble but **** furniture is much easier than this. Many of the holes were not drilled properly if at all. It required a lot of reworking.
