Just to add to the previous comments, this desk is high quality and very sturdy, but:
1) one of the holes on one of the legs was drilled on the wrong side so it's useless and actually shows
2) I had to hammer the top panel in (it wasn't fitting perfectly after assembling everything else) and did split a corner of the panel in the process (be careful!)
3) more importantly I was very disappointed at the back panel, it's made of cheap soft cardboard material and I was expected hard wood like the other panels. That means you can only place the desk against a wall or it will look pretty ugly. That's too bad because the rest is nice.
First off, the desk arrived VERY quickly. I honestly didn't expect it to get here for a few days. The UPS man was kind enough to bring it into my garage, which was very kind. The one box is 75 pounds, so be ready for that.
Second, assembly was not trivial, but wasn't hard. DEFINITELY follow the directions, especially on the drawer sliders. I thought I was following the directions carefully, but still managed to install them upside-down at first. The box included ample extra screws, etc., which is quite nice. When finished, the desk is very sturdy!
As for the desk itself, it's better than expected. It's wide and deep enough to be useful, but not so large as to take up the whole room. I selected this one to fit in a specific space. Magnets hold the keyboard drawer tightly closed. This means that the drawer is useful as a regular drawer, and since it's used as a laptop desk (no separate keyboard), that's VERY welcome.
For my purposes, this desk is as close to perfect as I could hope for. Thank you, Overstock!
We love our Plateau Computer Desk! It looks just like the picture and seems to be very high quality. It does take a little while to assemble. I did it mostly myself while my husband was at work and my two toddlers were napping. One of the most confusing parts to me was the guides for the drawers. I ended up putting some of them one the wrong way and had to reposition some of them. Not too bad though. We received the desk very quickly and were happy to have it. The price seems very reasonable, especially for the quality of the desk. We are very happy with our purchase. Now we just need a chair that looks as nice to go with it.
The other reviews were enthusiastic, so I ordered this desk, because I like the design. It took two days to put it together, so I knocked off one star for just being complicated to assemble. What really bothered me, though, is that the veneer on one drawer was already scratched when the desk arrived, and an entire sliver of the veneer on one of the legs just peeled off; in other words, the finish is not particularly durable.
And one of the drawers sticks a little. On the whole, despite its sturdiness and nice design, it's just an average piece of furniture.
We love this desk. It looks great in a small bedroom/home office. We would have given this 5-stars however there were a few minor details that the manufacturer could improve on (hopefully they pay attention to their customers comments/experiences). First the locking cams are low quality and bits of metal break off when tightening. Use a #3 Phillips to tighten as this might lessen the impact on the cams and keep them from breaking. Secondly, there are no pre-drilled holes in the drawer side panels for the screws that attach the glides. You may want to pre-drill small holes to avoid splitting the wood. We found out the hard way. Thirdly, the instructions, although not bad, they were a little off. Some of the pictures showed more wood dowels going into some of the panels than there were were holes. Lastly, after placing the top piece on it takes a contortionist to reach in the drawer cavities to tighten the locking cams. My suggestion is to take a good accounting of all your parts/pieces, lay them out and then assemble. Also, take your time and enjoy yourself. It took my wife and I about two hours to assemble.
We needed a simple space saving solution for a desk and pulled the trigger on the Plateau Computer Desk. A couple weeks later we were at Room & Board and saw a similar desk for near 4 times the price of this one! Now, granted, the quality of this desk is not as high as the one a R&B (this uses European cam fasteners, budget drawer slides, etc.), but the piece itself looks nearly identical! There's more solid wood on this piece than there is manufactured. Well worth the buy!
When I moved to a smaller home, I needed to downsize my office. This desk was the perfect choice. It was a bit of a challenge to put together, but so worth it. The color and quality of the wood is really beautiful and contemporary. I love the three drawers across the front. Now that I only have a laptop, when buttoned up, it really looks more like furniture than a working office. I love it.
I was a little nervous about getting this desk. It had a lot of good reviews about the looks but mostly heard that it was very hard to assemble and that the middle pull out drawer didn't work well. My handy husband had it put together in under two hours and the middle drawer works just fine. It's a very sturdy and great looking desk. Very good quality for the price.
This desk was fairly easy to assembly. It's sturdy and well made, except the keyboard drawer doesn't close all the way. Seems like the magnets don't want to connect. But most people wouldn't notice. I have the desk in my living room (to the side) and it looks really nice.
It does take a while to put together, my husband did it in about 2 1/2 hours. Very solid construction, Had the same problem with the magnetic drawer others have spoke of. It fit perfectly in the space I had for it, and I have gotten many compliments. Good value.
We have 2 of these that we purchased in 2010. We want to purchase another but now the quality is not the same - like the particle board backing. Any chance you could review this with the manufacturer and return to old specs, better quality?reviveme on Jul 4, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Does this desk have to go up next to a wall or can you put it in the middle of the room? Does the back look bad?gnal10 on Mar 4, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately we were able to confirm the back of this item is MDF particle board and will not match the rest of the desk.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 7, 2013
The back is not finished enough to float in a room. Back it to a sofa or wall.lisalucasdesign on May 10, 2013
