This desk is great! Its length and width make it perfect for what I need. I can have my textbook open and in front of me and my laptop can fit behind it, with a couple inches to spare. The desk is very sturdy and assembly was very easy. My only complaint is that the drawer is not very deep and it only uses half the depth of the desk. Overall this an awesome desk.
My only issue is it came damaged. If I remember correctly, in some of the review I read prior to purchasing it, there were complaints of damage as well. The corner of the desk top was mashed. Being fairly handy, I was able to repair it and nobody would notice. I really like the style and quality of the desk. If you order one, check it closely for damage!!
I have yet to fully assemble this desk. Looking at the sawhorse leg assembly makes be think it won't be too sturdy. The packaging looks to have endured a lot of handling... cardboard punctured etc. There was minimal damage so I wasn't going to send it back. The top is very heavy. It is a lot bigger than I thought it would be. I neglected to pay attention to the dimensions. I sure hope it all works out.
Arrived today in a big box. Two drawers and a set of legs were missing. Top had chips along the edges. Clearly a repackaged product that did not go through any quality control. Customer service was efficient and attentive. We'll see if the parts arrive timely. I'll fix the chips with putty. I really don't want to send the whole thing back.
This is a great desk. As in other reviews, it did come damaged. As did the second one. But overstock made good on both. I've not had such good customer service in years. I can't recommend highly enough. I'll definitely be ordering again from them. Very happy with this desk.
I like this desk--there is a lot of space, it looks modern, and the color is beautiful. The desk is a little wobbly even though I've tightened it as much as I could. I think it's the design of the desk. It won't fit a full-size ATX computer case, but I just removed the lower table tray (this may have contributed to the wobbliness) to make it fit. I bought this desk as part of an Overstock sale, so I'm really happy with the price. The shipment came in perfect condition, probably because I was the first delivery that day.
First of all this desk is amazing! Large and in charge. There are not many desks out there that have room for a pc and can double as a writing desk. Usually if you have a computer desk you won't have room for studying/paperwork. And if you buy a writing desk there won't be room for a computer. This is a perfect hybrid. My pc tower fits perfectly on the bottom shelf, and if you have a larger than normal tower you can always leave one of the top shelves off and it will still look great. Everything is espresso including the screws so you don't have to worry about the holes, they blend right in. I followed the instructions to the T and it came out perfectly, not wobbly at all. It took me about an hour by myself and the only step that was a challenge was flipping the desk over at the end. That said, DO NOT ORDER THIS DESK IF YOU'RE EXPECTING IT TO BE PERFECT. It is so large there is no way it will arrive undamaged. Mine was damaged on 3 corners, not sure if UPS's fault or not. I actually have a hunch it was Overstock's fault because one corner has the part of the covering (veneer?) stripped away, no way it could have happened during shipment because the pieces would still be in the box. Luckily one of the three corners is only damaged underneath so because the desk is in a corner none of the damage is visible. If I were expecting to put this in the middle of say an office I would be highly disappointed and likely to return it. Of course CHECK THE TOP PIECE BEFORE PUTTING IT TOGETHER to make sure you can live with whatever damage yours has. If I didn't feel so bad for the UPS man I probably would have actually returned mine LOL. Some dimensions I think are important but not included in the description are: Space between lower shelf and upper shelf (to fit a pc): 15 3/4" Space between upper shelf and top surface: 6" Length & width of lower shelf: 23 1/4" x 17 1/4" Length & width of upper shelf: 19" x 15 3/4" Don't get me wrong I am in love with my desk very happy with it I just wanted to give a complete & thorough review to help anyone considering it! Good luck!
Debated on whether to by the desk because if it's size. Very happy I did make the purchase. Assembly was quick and easy, the only reason I needed help was because the desktop was a little heavy. The desk is really sturdy.

Buying this product has become to much of an "event". Shipped with popcorn junk that blows all over the place. When first shipment arrived the thing weighted so much looks like post office guys dropped from a plane onto my porch. The top of desk was destroyed..and there were no instructions...I always look for those pesky things even though I am a guy. So Overstock was great about sending a replacement top right away...about two weeks later it arrived again with no instructions. So I am now going to call them again for the instructions and after I get them I would guess it will take me about 4 to 5 weeks from the date of order to put this thing together. It better last and it better eb righteous when done. Oh yeah I am now stuck with this massive busted up top for a desk I have no use for. Maybe they owe me a saw to cut it up for the garbage man.
All of the positive comments others have written about this desk are accurate. Would easily have rated this desk as five stars, however, like others have also mentioned in these reviews, two of the corners of the desk were crushed when we opened the box. Given other comments about replacement orders coming back with damages as well, we anticipate the same thing might happend again. This is a temporary solution to a furnishing need, so for now we're turning the damaged corners against the wall so they are less noticable - we like the overall look of this desk, but we will be hesitant to order from this particular brand again because clearly, the packaging needs to be improved to prevent others from experiencing the same disappointment.

I had ordered this item. It had arrived but its corner was damaged. After chatting with Overstock Customer Service, the order was replaced. I just received the replacement oder -- both the corner (one of its 4) and one of the edges were damaged. So I am getting yet another replacement order --- we will see what is going on...
