This desk is wonderful! It's well made and was very easy to put together. It looks beautiful in my office. The desk arrived quickly and was in perfect condition. This is my first purchase from Overstock.com. I couldn't be happier. The $2.95 shipping got me looking at this site, and now that I've seen the quality, I'll be back often!
I bought this for use with my laptop. It fits nicely against a wall in my small apartment. The finish is smooth and beautifully made. This desk looks more costly that what I paid for it. The assembly is easy--just screw on the legs. It was packaged very well and arrived without a scratch. The desk surface is large enough for my laptop, desk supplies, and papers. The drawers are wide enough and deep enough for additional desk supplies. I think it is a great buy for a student, an at-home writer such as myself, or anyone looking for a small desk for a kitchen, den or small apartment. I am really delighted with this purchase and highly recommend it to others.
I received this desk with one of the drawers broken as I had read in one of the reviews, but rather than hassle a return I fixed it myself. It is very small and has small drawers. There isn't much work or decorating space and good luck trying to fit stuff of necessity in the drawers. Disappointed :(
The desk itself is fine, nice finish, reasonably good wood. My order came very fast. BUT the drawers are already broken only a week after it arrived. This is because the drawers are very cheaply made with particle board guides that split and plastic sliders that fall off. If you are somewhat handy enough to fix the drawers should they break, go ahead and get this desk - it's pretty nice. If broken drawers annoy you, get something else.
Bought this desk for my son but one of the drawers arrived defective. There is a piece of plastic attached to the back of each drawer which serves to hold the drawer in place when the desk is placed upright. However, this plastic piece was detached from one of the drawers and had to duct tape it in place to prevent the drawer from sagging and dropping down. The desk is also too light; moves too easily when being used. Would use this desk only as a temporary budget fix.
The desk came quickly, was easy to assemble and is great quality for the price. I was so pleasantly surprised because you never know how sturdy furniture will be when you can't touch it. This desk is well made and looks great in my office.
When the desk arrived I was pleased by the color of the wood and the shape of the legs. It looked like the quality of the piece would match the price. I was soon proven wrong, as the rail holding up one of the drawers broke the moment we put the desk in its place. Also, the package says you can't put more than 40 pounds on the desk. Judging by the flimsiness of the drawer rails, the thing might break in half if you were to put a desktop computer tower on it. I really just need a place to pay bills and use my laptop, but if you're looking for something sturdier, I'd look elsewhere.
I bought this piece for a home office desk - and I am so glad I did! The desk itself is great quality and easy to put together - it took all of 15 minutes! My roomate loves it so much she just ordered one for herself ! A great value for the price!
I really like this desk. I bought it because it's black and matches other pieces we have, it's small but has a good amount of surface area, it's traditionally styled, and it has 2 very spacious drawers for my knicks and knacks. My husband put it together and he didn't curse so it must have been easy. And the price was great. I'd recommend it to anyone.
I would have given this desk 5 stars if it weren't for the way the drawers a built. They seem just a bit flimsy and a small part of the mechanism broke the first day. Luckily it was easy to fix and I'm handy with such things. Otherwise the design is PERFECT - size, finish, colour are all top quality. I have my 20 inch iMac on it and it holds on perfectly. I would recommend it to anyone who needs a good working desk or computer table!
I love everything about this writing table, the style, just as I pictured how it would look, It was very fast to put together, I did it myself, just put on four legs, it was packaged very well, and shipping was fast, got it in less than a full week...I am giving it a 4 start because of 2 hair line cracks, one below the drawer,and the other on the back that butts up to the wall. it is very hard to notice unless looking for a defect, but it is there...on the back and front...wish they would inspect things better before shipping it out....to me it wasnt't worth the bother to return it....for the price it is great for my need.
A fantastic deal! If you're looking for a practical, somewhat stylish desk for not much money, this is the one. I thought I would need my husband for assembly, but turns out all you have to do is attach the legs. The drawers are done for you. I added different knobs, just to give it a little more personality, and it really dessed it up.
