  • Plymouth Writing Desk (can be used for computer)

    Great value! The desk is 55-1/2" wide - we bought two to fit against one wall in our study. The small top measures 8-1/2" deep (drawers are 7" deep measuring from interior of the drawer) - depth of main open area of desktop is 19-1/2" deep (measured to the beginning of the upper box), so lots of room for a workspace (overall desk depth is 28" - including the smaller box on the main desk). Main desktop drawer depth is 15", so room for some files or paperwork (drawer is about 2" interior height). My monitor, speakers, rolodex, joystick all fit on top of upper box with lots of room left. Note these measurements as they are not shown in the online specs. I think you could easily modify the main desk drawer to open as a keyboard drawer (by adding hinges), but is comes as a regular drawer. The middle top and main desk drawers are much wider than the side drawers. Really finishes off our office nicely. Now we have a place to put our papers and supplies (six drawers in all). Almost black in color (it is an espresso brown). Took a few hours to put it all together but not too hard and well worth it. Just take your time - there are areas not premarked for the screws, so be sure to measure placement (mainly placement of the top box and screwing it to the main desktop). Compared to other items (storage and looks) and prices locally, this was quite the deal and very, very nice. Everything in our study now looks clean and organized!!

  • Nice solid attractive piece

    Other than the drawers (particle board bottoms), the piece is very solid... much heavier than I expected. It is a good size desk. It is as, maybe more, attractive than the picture. I thought assembly was straight forward. I find it helpful to lay out all of the parts and to identify what they are and more or less how they fit together. All of the different screws, fasteners, etc. are bagged separately and numbered corresponding to the directions. I spent under two hours assembling it by myself. I used a power drill to install most of the screws, being careful not to over tighten. Rather than attach the top section of the desk, I had some small stick on rubber bumpers that I put one the bottom of it. They keep it from slipping very nicely without having to screw through the surface of the desk to secure it. This way the desk could be used without the top piece.

  • nice quality desk

    I was nervous about ordering something sight unseen, but the other reviewers were right on target. It's a beautiful, good quality desk - solid, well-made, and attractive. I expected to spend 4 hours putting it together, but once I got all the pieces and hardware organized it only took about 2 hours plus about 15 minutes the next day to put the drawer pulls on. I'm not exactly the strongest woman but didn't have any problems putting it together myself. I just used an electric screwdriver and a drill. Other reviewers were correct that some of the pre-drilled holes were not even close to being in the right place which is why I needed the drill. I'm very happy with the desk so far.

  • Beautiful Solid Desk/Good Value

    You can't beat this price for a solid wood desk. I am giving 4 stars because the other reviews are right - it is darker than you would think (I would call it black). And the instructions could have been a little more clear in one area (see below)... But, aside from that I love my desk! First of all, the desk is solid wood - so it is heavy... This does make assembly a little awkward. But, hey! It's solid wood! I assembled the desk by myself in just under 2 hours, it would have gone a little faster with someone to help with the top. I would say the 4 hour estimates must have been from people not using a power screwdriver. That is a requirement here (many screws, long screws, and cams). While assembly was mostly straight forward, it was more complex than your run-of-the-mill department, store particle board special. Extra hardware was provided (e.g., cam locks, screws dowels), which is a good thing. And for the most part the instructions were complete... Instructions were a little vague around the front rail (careful inspection of the inventory pictures-and some common sense worked here), and 2 dowel holes for the top didn't line up well enough to "cajole" into place. Considering how many screws and fasteners they attach the top with, I removed the dowels and never missed them.

  • Difficult to assemble

    This desk is very good looking and the materials are quality but the trouble starts when putting the darn thing together. Let me preface this by saying that in the past I have put together an office armoire, desk with hutch, bookshelf, and office cabinets so I am not new to assembling case pieces. The difficulty I have run into is the cams won't close all the way (I think I have only gotten one to work correctly) and getting the pieces to fit together with dowels is almost impossible. I have had to hammer the heck out of it to get the pieces to fit snugly together and still the cams won't work properly. The desk is almost together (I took a break becuase it was so frustrating) but it is now a distressed piece because of all of the hammering I had to do. I still have to get the top to fit snugly in place and get the drawers together. I am keeping the piece because 1) I don't want to take it apart and 2) there is no guarantee that the next one won't be the same way. I did find a way to steam the dents out. HA!

  • Seriously fantastic product

    This desk is amazing overall. Pros: - Extremely stylish - More amount of drawers/storage space than I would expect for a writing desk - The top level is the best part. I was able to my large monitor up there, hide the wires, and then could place my laptop on the bottom. Ever see someone's monitor placed atop a stand or worse, stacks of paper? Perfect viewing. Also fit my lamp up and computer speakers up there perfectly, leaving the bottom for papers, laptop, and whatever else I had down there. Cons: - You need a PhD in construction or something to put this together. But when it's set up, it's beautiful. - It doesn't disassemble. The legs don't come off once put together. I had to move and I really wanted to take it with me but there was no way to make it fit in the storage container without removing the legs. I ended up leaving it on the lawn for some lucky neighbor to enjoy :(

  • I love my new desk!

    It's the perfect size, color and style for me - very sturdy, solid wood, nice dark espresso finish. I needed usable drawers and this has 3 great drawers, plus 3 more on top. I didn't attach the top drawers. They are heavy enough to just sit there and gives me another option in the future if I decide I don't want them up there, without having made holes. I have a large iMac sitting on this desk and there is ample room even with the top drawers. One could easily configure the middle drawer as a pull out for keyboard and mouse, but so far I've had no need. I really appreciated all the details other reviewers gave on dimensions, etc. It made my decision much easier. It's a great desk!!

  • Beautiful, solid, quality piece

    This is a beautiful, heavy, solid piece of furniture! I am a 40 year old woman that is not particularly in shape, and I had no trouble assembling it myself (although it did take some time). Contrary to some of the other reviews, I found all the pre-drilled holes to be in the proper positions and everything fit together just right. Maybe I just got lucky, but I didn't have one problem! Like some other reviewers, I chose not to attach the top hutch to the desk, instead I put small felt bumpers on the bottom of it. I didn't see any reason to drill through that lovely top piece of wood. It is also more versatile this way. The top hutch is heavy too, and stays in place just fine. Oh, and as for attaching the top surface, I simply laid the top upside down on the floor, and then positioned the leg assembly onto it that way. Once I had all the cams tightened and such, I stood the whole desk up and voila, done! I have assembled furniture from a box before, so maybe that is a little advantage, but I really didn't find this piece very difficult. There were a lot of screws, and my electric screwdriver helped immensely with that. Altogether, it is a really beautiful desk, it looks very high quality, is real wood (not particle board), and makes a lovely addition to my home!

  • Nice desk, but legs need work

    I bought this desk because I'm 6'2" and like having lots of leg room. Since I use the desk as a laptop work space, the extra drawers on the top make a perfect place for an extra monitor in a dual monitor setup. Once put together, the desk is as expected. I just wish you could get it with no drawers, as my long legs don't fit well under it while seated. However, that's the case with most any desk for me. Assembly, however was a major pain. The legs come preassembled as two parts, to the left pair of legs and the right pair of legs. They're held by three 5/16" dowels that are sort of glued. However, both of mine were glued such that the legs weren't flush, there was about a 1/4" gap and you could see the dowels. So, I tried pushing it together, and eventually broke all three dowels on one of the legs. Well, since the thing weighs a ton, I wasn't going to ship it back. I drilled out the old dowels and put in new ones. Not for the faint of heart or those without a doweling kit. I also added metal corner braces to all the legs. Now that it's together and I've added the extra braces, I feel confident the legs are steady. However, without those, I don't think the small dowels are adequate for such long skinny legs and heavy desk. The finish looks good and so far I haven't scratched it. The drawers are nice, as are the hardware pulls.
