...very hard to assemble. The directions are very clear and the pieces were all labelled really well. There were just so many steps involved. It took me about 3 straight hours of scratching my head. Plus one of the top drawer rails was lined up wrong and I had to move it. But in the end, what really matters is it looks really good and came out very sturdy. The space up top is perfect for all my office supplies. The file drawer is also a perfect size. Plus, I love how's there's a divider in the middle so I can easily separate files between me and my fiance.

I am a work-at-home mom. Since starting my "at-home" job about a year ago, I had been working with my laptop and office supplies on our dining room table because our other large desk is in a spare bedroom, away from the main living area of the house. I need to be near my four year old while I'm working during the day, so using that desk and room wasn't an option. Our house is about average size - 1500 square feet - and the layout makes it difficult to put the large desk anywhere else. Constantly having to move my stuff from one room to the other when we needed to use the dining room table was really becoming a hassle, not to mention how cluttered it looked with all my office supply stuff sitting everywhere. I cleared out a corner in our family room and this desk just works perfectly from all aspects! The color is a nice, rich black that fits perfectly with our country/primitive decor but could easily fit in with other styles as well. The quality is great - from what I can see it is nearly all solid wood. The size is perfect - I worried about having enough room for my laptop, notebooks, and other things that I need to work with all at the same time, but there is plenty of space. Having the drawer to stash all my stuff is awesome too! The drawer is larger than I was expecting and holds plenty of supplies. The desk and the chair are both very sturdy. I worried about this because of the price point, but I was pleasantly surprised! It arrived four days after I ordered it and It took my husband a little over an hour to assemble the desk and I believe the chair went together pretty quickly as well. All in all, one of the best furniture purchases I've made in awhile!

Took a bit of time to put together and direction are not totally crystal clear. I should have put it together in the room that desk was eventually going in because it was not very easy to get thru doorways. With that being said, it is a good sturdy desk. Tthe only complaint is that the drawer is not totally straight. that is why I gave it an overall Good rating.

I'm happy with it overall. Shipped quickly, delivered to my apt door, and no damage. It was surrounded in lots of styrofoam so it came pretty protected. Easy as cake to assemble. Just screwed in the four legs. Drawers were spacier than I expected. I switched out the knobs for some small clear crystals and it gives the simple look a bit more elegance.

This desk arrived at my home in 6 days. It was delivered in a big, heavy box (need a dolly to move it). Assembly took about 1.5 hours; all the pieces were there (even wood glue!), and instructions were clear. Each piece is thick, not the flimsy stuff. No drilling required, just a screwdriver & hammer. The shelf side holds my desktop CPU, printer, surge protectors, router, and battery back-up unit with a bit of space left over. The desktop is large enough for 2 telephones, 2 keyboards and 2 computers (I work from home). It took a long time to find a solid-built white desk to match existing pieces in my home office, and this fits the bill. I have 2 small complaints: UPS damaged the top in shipping (corners are crimped, spoiling the appearance a bit), and I think the overall price is a bit high. Otherwise, I am satisfied.

Looks great and very solid construction! Nice piece of furniture to hide away a small office. The only downside is it took 5 hours to put together but still gave it a 5/5 stars since the directions to complete were very clear.

If you are looking for a desk that is terribly constructed, difficult to put together, and made with the cheapest parts available, then this is the desk for you! After completing the first 4 steps of assembly I quickly realized that many of the predrilled holes were not in the right place. With a little help from the Craftsman power drill, a level, and some Tylenol I was able to complete the assembly, and my son learned a few new swear words in the process. I'm hoping to get at least 2 years out of this desk but I have my doubts.

I ordered this desk several months ago for my home office/sitting room., but just got around to putting it together. Like many of the previous reviews, I agree that the desk is a challenge to put together. It took my son's and I 2.5 hours to put it together. There are a were about two steps that were not clear and it is really important to check to make sure you have all the pieces facing in the right direction. Once we got past the challenges, the assembly process moved fairly quick. I agree that the drop down is large and I don't feel comfortable applying any pressure. Like one other post, I am going to look at attaching piano hinges. I was not able to use the selves as my monitor sits too high, but I really appreciate having everything stored neatly away. This is a heavy piece of furniture and an excellent value. I would have rated it five starts, except the directions are challenging and the assembly is so time consuming.

This is a small desk. I needed something small to fit in my bedroom and this is perfect. It would be nice if the keyboard drawer could pull out a little further. I put this desk together myself in 30 minutes. The instructions are simple and clear.

I purchased two of these units, one for me and one for my wife. We have both gone back to college and needed a office to study and work. We converted a room into an office and did not have a lot of room so these desks and small footprint works well. I put both desk together alone in about 3 hours. It could be done quicker but I wanted to take my time and not strip anything. I also did it while watching tv so it wouldn't feel like work. Everything lined right up as it should. Best to lay out all your parts before starting. Directions were very easy and clear with pictures. I knew the desks measurements before ordering so I had the wall space already mapped out. I also mounted these on the wall by myself, no issues at all. I wanted to surprise my wife by having everything done by the time she got home. She loved them. The only issues I can think of are two of the pieces of wood had small damage on the corners but customer service was nice and professional and sent out free replacements pieces within 4 days so super fast and easy for me to swap out. They didn't even want the broken wood back so even easier to trash the damaged pieces. The other thing is, I use the desk with my Mac and other apple things. Even though the Magic Mouse works perfectly with this desk, it made a kinda annoying scratching sound when sliding it around because of the type of wood finish. Easily corrected the sound with a dollar mouse pad. It might not have bothered some but I'm picky. The wall mounting calls for 3 stud mounting but our home (built in 80s) could only fit two studs which works fine. I simply check the bolts once a week to make sure they are still fine. Takes about 10 secs to inspect the bolts. The desk came with a marker to touch up and scratches which works perfectly. I am very happy I purchased these and they look great. I am typing this reply via my iPhone but if this website had a way to attach a picture I would for you to see how nice the desks look. Me. Male, 45 and about a 7 on a 1 to 10 scale (10 being super) on being a handy, fix it kinda guy. This desk would rate a 4 on a 1 to 10 scale on difficulty of putting together and mounting. (10 being super hard, professional needed)

I ordered the black world map desk but when it was shipped to my house it was the silver with clear glass top. The name on the outside of the box said it was the world map black desk. I'am very disappointed but I decided to keep it because of the cost of sending it back and packaging. For future reference, please check the product before it is shipped.

This was purchased for a very small office with the intention of using it at home if it wasn't fit for the office. It is surprisingly sturdy & invisible in a small space. It is pretty comfortable even without cushions, but not meant for a very heavy individual. Office workers who are used to fabric or leather chairs are afraid of it, but those with an open mind love it ! It looks beautiful & fits the bill perfectly.

the keyboard tray appeared to be wider in the pictures. it easily fits my keyboard but not my mouse-pad. I find it easier to have the mouse right beside my keyboard, so it's cramped for me. may be others use their mice on the table-top. the build is good and sturdy. they could have easily used some metal end-caps for the horizontal support tube/bar connecting the two upright end posts (the curved X-shaped posts at the ends). the plastic end-caps with metallic paint look too flimsy when securing them onto the tube. the glass top is a delight! smudges and finger-prints are to be expected, but it looks quite elegant and yet simple! my earlier table was wooden and I had to struggle to position cables and plugs. but the clear glass makes that an easy deal! on the whole, this is a good product. the reason I gave it 4 stars is that I haven't yet fully begun to use this as my work space. it's in my home-office but I have been busy with my actual office and didn't have enough energy left in me after coming home to use this table. going by the initial looks and impression, it seems to be a good long-term investment. I just have to be careful not to scratch the glass-top!

Purchased this L-shaped desk for the remodel of my minister husband's home office where he studies and writes sermons. Commissioned my two sons, ages 20 & 15, to set it up before I got home. Was extremely pleased, even more so when I told them to switch the sides so the long portion of the L was another way. This was accomplished with minimal effort and very little fuss. My husband was so pleased! Love the clear glass, the addition of having the monitor off the floor, more than enough room to have a table lamp, monitor and various office suplies and writing pads. Adds distinctive modern air to entire room!

Absolutely love this desk. I have purchased 2 of them. My husband is skilled so putting them together was about an hour each. Even if you're not handy, the direction are very clear. I use 2 monitors and the raised part works perfectly for my 22" monitor. A++ product

The desk is made out of particle board. The assembly instructions are not clear and the drawer didn't line up when attached to the frame. The frame also is bowed. I do not recommend this product.

This shelf is in a kitchen to store often used white dishes and clear glass bowls.It is so handy not to have to open cabinet doors anymore. The material is sturdy and well veneered. The cross bars add style. One of them split during assembly. The phone number on the directions was not operative, so I contacted Overstock. The rep, Yolanda was very attentive and helpful. She was not getting through the number either, but, assured me the needed replacement part would be available. It took a few days, but, she followed through , kept in contact, and eventually the part did arrive. Overstock has a gem in Yolanda. There are a lot of parts, and assembly is time consuming. Had the materials not been generally of good quality, I would have considered the split piece reason to return the shelf.

We bought two of these. They are well made and are solid wood, not particleboard. The directions were pretty clear but there were a lot of parts so that the desks took about four hours each to assemble. They are handsome pieces of furniture but are NOT the color shown in the ad. They are a much darker cherry-looking wood. So long as that color fits your décor I would recommend this desk as being a very good value.
