I am so happy with this desk! It has a lot of top space for a home office. The shelves are wonderful cubby's to keep all of my extra desk items. I bought a new chair from overstock to go with my desk. I also bought a file cabinet to sit at the end. I am very organized now.The desk is excellent quality.
The desk arrived very quickly after ordering. It was incredibly simple to put together, but definitely requires 2 people. It's perfect for a small space and very sturdy. It looks great in our guest room/office. It does not have any drawers, and it doesn't come with the cabinet shown in the photo. So if you want drawers, make sure you purchase that cabinet separately.

The desk arrived quickly, in good shape, well packaged, and with easy directions. However, there was an error in directions where the part labeled "J" was actually supposed to be part "H." Fortunately, the directions were intuitive enough to figure this out after a bit of wasted time assembling. The desk is sturdy and attractive. I'm bummed that the drawer unit was it included.

I am very happy with our new desk and book shelf. It came in a 70lb box WOW but I have never seen furniture packed so well. No damage on it what so ever! It did take a few hours to put together and my fingers are sore. I wish they had words on the instructions to make it easier, but it did come out really nice.
I love my desk. it's exactly what I expected and the addition of the bookshelf was imperative.

I purchased this as a desk for my new office nook in a small 6x6 ft. mudroom in my home. The small desk size and lots of storage do not disappoint. I assembled the entire desk and bookshelf in under three hours on my own. From a design standpoint, I like that the bookshelf can be used in multiple ways; I chose to actually place it length-wise across the back of the desk (as opposed to vertically on the side of the desk as shown in the online picture). And, the black backing of the bookshelf cubbies can be removed to show through to the wall paint, if you so desire (I did, made the unit feel less cumbersome in the small space). Overall, recommend this desk. 4 stars instead of 5 because of one small ding on the desktop (I choose to overlook rather than wait for a replacement) and wish the screws were regular phillips-head instead of allen-wrench (for which my power drill did not have a single bit to fit properly, so I ended up doing most of the tightening by hand).

It's just that, a plain, big, sturdy, fantastic desk.. big enough to make it your home office.. I prefer to put the cabinet next to it on the floor, and appreciate the whole space of the table plus a floor shelf that works just as good. fully recommend!
Thought the desk came with drawers. Was not aware that the drawers were not attached, I believe that is a printer cart next to the desk. They should specify that in the description. Had to order a file cabinet with shelf after I received the desk.
I have 2 #4 screws not totally screwed in because the Allen key provided already worn out even before I could finish the bookcase (and I still have to put the desk yet). I recommend to start assembly from inside out. Starting with the dividers and shelves before the sides, top and bottom to have more room for your hand with the Allen key or else you will have a bookcase with scratches.
I've had great success with other items on Overstock but this one was a real dud. Since the description only listed the full height with the bookcase included (71") I know I took a chance in assuming that the height of the desk would be average - it is not. The desk height is 30" and there is no keyboard tray to help with ergonomics. Unfortunately since I had to open the box to set it up and see these faults, I can't return it. I was also expecting wood or at least sealed off edges - this desk is entirely particle board and the bottom edge is unfinished. This makes it very difficult to move on a carpeted floor as the particle board breaks up easily. The finish on the edges also chips easily showing the particle board underneath. The final construction is quite flimsy and doesn't feel sturdy enough to handle much weight. Overall a big disappointment.
