Overstock revels in providing deceptive advertising to its customers. Please beware that it DECEPTIVELY shows the entire item for the sale price of $308. What you should be aware of is that to get the entire thing that they show you it is really well over $600. I thought bait and switch tactics and decptive advertising was illegal. Apparently not at Overstock.com What a ripoff and a crime.
I ordered the desk for my daughter for Christmas....so when it came in a huge barely movable box, I left it in the garage covered until Christmas morning. Once she opened it - we were ready to bring it in - and were initially delighted that we had NO installation! The desk was complete in the box! My husband and I lifted it out of the shipping container - and the top came unglued from the sides. We decided to go with it - and tried to carry it from the bottom to her room then deal with the damage....and the whole side not only fell off - but the particle board (not real wood) ripped off the bottom! I know it will be way too ridiculous to try to send this back so we called our carpenter friend who came over with a hammer and some gorilla glue and presently the desk is in 'repair' upside down outside my daughter's room. Hopefully it will work - $XXX is a lot to spend on junk - I would've just bought the Sauder piece if I wanted that!!!
This desk was exactly what I was looking for! I bought it for my 10 year old son but wanted a "grown-up" desk that he can use as he gets older. It is a great price, very sturdy, a good size, and has great storage! There are 3 average sized drawers on the right and then a thin drawer on the left. The thin drawer is not for a keyboard but could hold paper and has a place to hold a few pens and pencils. I didn't have any problems with damage to the desk as others had mentioned. It comes fully assembled in a very large box. There was some damage to the outside box, but there was so much packaging around the desk that the desk was just fine! I'm very happy with this purchase! I think my son will be able to use it for years to come!
We got this desk for my son's room. The navy color is really cute for a boy. Desk works great. Price and shipping were good except for the fact that it was damaged when it arrived. The top was actually split and cracked and the drawers were split too. But overstock was wonderful about the pickup and return and the new one we received came in perfect condition.
I had been searching for desks for my 9 and 10 year old children and came across Lang's Desks. We purchased a White and a Blue set, they came in really well packed and fully assembled. We pulled them out of the box and they were ready to go, no assembly except to put the knobs on...... The kids love them and I'm happy they were made in the USA....
I work in a cabinet shop & caught a lot of flack from the other carpenters when this arrived on our dock. Once I unpacked it, the flack turned to compliments & we were all amazed that something this inexpensive could still be made in the United States. Very good value for the money & has received many positive comments for friends and family that have seen the desk.
I purchased (2) desks for my children one blue and one in pine and my kids LOVE them.... I searched all over to find something functional, yet affordable and this is a GREAT buy...... I'd definitely buy Lang Product again. And IT'S MADE IN THE USA, About time somethings made in the states...
