I am enjoying this item. It well suits the purpose of a standing mail station. I immediately nicked the wood type surface and it left a mark. Be very careful to unlock it completely before opening so not to allow hook to touch wood type surface. Otherwise, very stylish and practical.

The good: 1. Classy and modern looking 2. Assembly was not nearly as bad as some of the other customers stated. I'm 5'1" girl, and with a powered screw driver, it took about 2 hours to put together. It would take longer if you just use the provided Phillips screw driver. You probably need somebody else to help you flip over the assembled desk. 3. Relatively sturdy, and it doesn't seem like it's going to fall apart any time soon, as long as you don't sit on it. 4. Drawer provides extra storage The bad: 1. The desk is a very dark shade of mahogany; not black brown, and has more of a reddish tint. Doesn't look bad, but it didn't match the coffee bean colored blinds we have. 2. When I first assembled the desk, it was slightly uneven on the feet, but after it sits on the wood floor for a while with all the stuff on top of it, it seems to have settled into a steady form. 3. The desk is not made of real wood, and the top surface is screwed onto the legs on two sides instead of placed on top of the legs, so effectively the long screws are holding up the weight of the top surface itself as well as all the stuff you put onto the desk. I wouldn't put any heavy weight (including myself <120 lbs) on it. 4. The placement of the drawer is right where your legs would be if you were to sit at a comfortable height in a chair, so your legs will run into the drawer if you are not skinny. It works alright for me, but if I were to pack on 30 more lbs (hopefully never), it would be a problem. Then again, you don't have to put the drawer on. Overall, it's a good purchase. We looked for the right desk for months, and I'm glad that despite other negative reviews, I took a chance with this one. It's looks better/higher quality than ikea, but the price is just about the same. It's a great deal and overall a great desk.

The description is spot on but i feel that the picture don't do it justice.

I got this product only two days after ordering. It was well packaged and extremely easy to install. It feels very sturdy and is just a cool low profile design. I'm using it to store and charge my ipad and to write bills and stuff. There isn't a hole anywhere to run cables through but its simple to drill your own and its probably best that they didn't put holes so you can run your cables according to your setup. I'm considering buying another one for my home office and ripping out the diagonal laptop shelf. If you do that you could mount about a 16" monitor inside. I highly recommend this product.

I purchased this desk on Overstock after reading the reviews. I fully anticipated difficulty in assembling it. To my surprise it wasn't all that bad. It did take a few hours and some redo's because not all pilot holes on wood matched up. They draws aren't all flush either but all in all for the price well worth it considering this is made of hardwood. Don't be concerned when it arrives when you see the condition of the box, mine was a mess but everything was in it and in good shape. Would recommend to anyone who wants a solid desk for a little money and who has patience to put it together.

This desk arrived in good packaging and in good shape. The only assembly needed was to bolt the legs onto the table. The legs make it a very distinctive looking desk. The cherry color is nice. That being said, the desk is just pressed particle board. and it is questionable how long it will stay looking new. But for now I am pleased with the purchase.

The desk arrived with a huge flaw down the center of the top. Looks like it was split or broken down the length of it and then some sort of plastic wood used to stick it back together.

We love this computer desk. It was easy to assemble and its the perfect size for our home office. I was nervous--but once my husband opened the packaging and begin to put it together I loved it. It is priced very reasonably for the great quality. Now if we could just find the perfect file cabinet in mahogany to match.

This desk arrived quickly and took only 15 minutes to screw in the legs. It's a very nice looking desk and fits perfectly in our small guest room. I don't love the feel of the drawers as they open - they'd be nicer on a track. But for the price, this is a great little desk - very sturdy.

The wood in one of the drawers had peeled off even before it arrived and the build quality is very poor. Other than that it looks nice, especially the helix legs.

I don't know why people complain about size when this desk is displayed showing size schematics for all of its components including the drawers. BTW the file drawer is built to hold files facing the laterally, not facing front, hence the narrow width. The finish is "distressed" or else it would not appear with the mottled color as represented in the photo. As for broken pieces and missing hardware, you are buying from a remainder retailer and are getting other store's rejects, so be careful when making purchases. The extra holes are probably the result of these pieces being generically cut to fit various furniture pieces in this "Mission" style series. I would consider this desk for purchase, however for this price, I would expect fewer complaints about damaged surfaces, poor packaging and missing parts than what appeared here, especially since this piece is cumbersome and most likely not easily returnable.

The price and appearance make this desk worth the purchase and the work to assemble it. The directions were not clear enough; the images needed to be larger. The screws sent to assemble the keyboard drawer were not long enough to secure it to the desk body so I had to buy some at my local hardware store. It is very solid and it looks nice and it works for us. So with the labor pains behind me, I am satisfied with my purchase.

I work out of my home as a computer programmer and was looking for a simple solid desk to replace the old table I had been using as a work area. I am pleased with the desk overall and I would purchase again, but I have some comments: 1. Assembly - My husband is pretty handy, and has assembled quite a few pieces from overstock for me. This one took him almost 4 hours to complete, which was more than I had originally hoped/expected. He mentioned that the instructions were not a good as they could be in some areas. and he could not always use the marked "predrilled" holes as they were not as exact as they could be. He has had other pieces he's assembed where he would comment on the actual materials as being inferior, and that did not come up with this desk at all (I rewarded him a bottle of scotch after to thank him because I know it was more than the usual challenge to assemble.) 2. Looks: It looks just like the photo on O. The piece turned out very lovely, heavy and solid. when complete. It looks to be a quality piece. I have it in a room with two other mahogany older pieces. One thing I didn't catch when I ordered this was that there is actually matte black paint/stain accenting the drawers. I like it and it kind of pulls together nicely with the black desk mat and other black items in my office. 3. Use: I have a computer monitor on it, and I use a keyboard and mouse, both of which I have in the keyboard drawer. I am working at this desk about 9 hours a day, so I have noticed a few things that irritate a little. One of the reasons I wanted the desk was because of the keyboard drawer, in order to bring the keyboard lower. It works well for that, except I feel it would be nicer if the keyboard drawer were a couple inches wider. I can fit the standard-sized keyboard on it, and I have very small mouse pad and mouse next to it. The issue is that the area for a mouse next to the keyboard is not large enough. I have to tuck part of the mouse pad under the keyboard. Alternatively, If I put the mouse pad on the desk itself, then I have to reach up and forward every time I use the mouse, and that got tedius. Admittedly, I hadn't paid much attention when ordering to how large the keyboard tray was, as I hadn't thought of it as possibly being an issue and just assumed it would be as large as a similar desk I had purchased from a local furniture store whose keyboard tray is a few inches wider and works with both the keyboard and mouse, without feeling a tad squeezed in. It's not a deal-breaker for me, but I might have looked closer at another desk if I had understood better the impact of the width of the keyboard tray. Also, the keyboard tray hinge is not recessed, so you cannot slide the keyboard over the drawer portion. (This is not like my other desk, where it was recessed.). This is bothering me a little more, and I'm considering looking for replacement hinges. I saw the comments of others about the keyboard tray not staying up. I have not experienced that, but I am pretty careful to not put up the front of the drawer until the whole tray has been slid back in place, and when I open it, I put the front down and them pull it out. I know this sounds picky, but it makes a difference in how the drawer closes.

this is the perfect desk fora laptop or iPad - it folds away when not in use and takes up virtually no room in my office. My installer drilled hold on the side to allow for the electrical cord to go through so I need not even remove the laptop - just slide it inside!

I bought the mahogany colored table, and it is a great color. The only issue I have with this table is that it is very tall and does go lower so you can not use it from most household furniture.

I looked long and hard for a simple yet elegant writing desk for my morning room. Given the price, I was skeptical and expected a rickety bit of work. This desk fits the bill! East to assemble, solid and sturdy. I was pleasantly surprised. The details are quite nice - clean lines, two drawers, and turned legs. Color is a little richer than it displayed on my screen, and that is actually pleasing to me. I have the same experience as another reviewer concerning the drawers. The slides are not smooth working. For the price and the look and the rest of the build, I can live with the slides ...

We ordered this to go in a small apartment, and it has worked out great. It is sturdy and attractive....probably requires at least two people for the mounting, because it is pretty heavy. I think this would be great for someone with limited space.

The first two storage units arrived damaged in undamaged boxes, so damage must have occurred in shipping. Two of the wooden drawer tracks were broken on each unit. Overstock.com provided outstanding customer service, shipped two more units that each arrived in pristine condition. My experience was very positive with Overstock.com, but I question the quality of the product due to a 50% success rate of surviving shipping.

This is a beautiful desk with a nice mahogany color and a wide top with a lot of space. It was fairly easy to assemble as you only had to attach the legs and knob on the front but it was kind of heavy to move around once assembled. The keyboard drawer never would stay closed for me. Even though I measured my area it just didn't work for me as I intended. I was going to use it like an arm arranged with my computer desk. This desk must have had some kind of scent on it as one of my dogs was attracted to it. She has never gnawed any furniture up until now. After I had it in place for about a day she had gnawed a small place on a corner and after another day she gnawed an even bigger place on the corner and unfortunately I had to remove it from my house as I was scared she would ingest something harmful for her. This is a nice desk but it just didn't work out for me.

Great desk for a compact east coast apartment, the only think I would have liked to see was a grommet for cords. I did end up drilling a hole in the side and inserting a grommet for cords. Other than that one issue it's a great little desk

Lately, television consoles, stands and storage racks have been exhibiting updated designs, sporting storage for your media essentials in models that are tastefully coordinated to the rest of your living room furniture. Compact TV stands and corner TV stands are convenient in smaller apartments, dorm rooms and offices, but even large homes can benefit from the clean look and discreet presence of a television stand. As more people upgrade to lean flat-panel televisions, they are seeing that the smaller size of a TV stand is all they need. The furniture industry usually reserves the term "entertainment center" for the largest TV furniture, big enough for the television, a cadre of audio or video components and a full CD-DVD collection. TV stands tend to be smaller than full entertainment centers while still having enough shelves for a few components and some media storage. For smaller homes or for smaller rooms in larger homes a stand may be all the TV furniture you need.
