After reading the somewhat mixed reviews, I ordered this desk with a healthy dose of skepticism. I was amazed when the box showed up in perfect condition. Expertly packaged, the entire carton was completely wrapped in heavy duty plastic, and all the edges and corners had been reinforced with additional cardboard. My husband (who is very handy) assembled the desk by himself while I was out of the house so I can not speak about the degree of difficulty regarding assembly. He did say it took him a couple of hours and he had a handful of screws left over. The desk looks absolutely gorgeous in our home office. Truth be told, it does not have the same weight and substance as a ready-built piece of furniture from a "real" furniture store, but it looks much better than the typical "assemble-it-yourself" furniture that I've purchased in the past. I am extremely satisfied with this purchase.

This is a pretty nice desk for the money. I read a lot of reviews prior to purchasing, and many of them talked about poor quality and difficulty assembling the desk. I find this desk to be one of the nicest pieces of assemble your own furniture I have purchased. I put this desk together in less than 2 hours. There are a few of the lettered stickers than are on the outside surfaces, but otherwise its a nice desk for the money.
The desk is just as described. It was not too hard to put together with a little team work. My desk did have some damage on the top but with assistance from Overstock I received ***% back on the purchase because I didn't want to return it. Very satisfied!
I bought this for my son, and I was hopeful it would work well. It was difficult to assemble, and even when I finally finished it, it does not hold up well. Things keep coming loose, the desk starts tipping, the drawers don't go in right because the desk is off-kilter. Also, the top started to slip off when we tried to pick it up and move it. We haven't been able to use it due to the instability. I need to throw some screws in it to keep it stable. So completely disappointed with this desk. It may just end up in the trash
