Very nice desk. The instructions were ok, but I've seen better Sometimes the illustrations showed angles that weren't really clear. In particular, the pieces were not labeled and ALL hardware was simply mixed together in a bag. I didn't have too much trouble though because the pieces were sort of distinctive, but I can image that a novice furniture assembler would have trouble. It would have been nice to have a large sheet of paper that could have been used as a template to really see the layout of the desk on the wall. Especially since I was planning to install a multimedia cable channel behind the desk. It was hard to determine its best location. Also, assembly called for hanging across 3 studs. That's fine if your studs are the typical 16 inch separation, but our room has studs 23 inches apart so getting 3 was not feasible. Hardware should have included ancors for cases like mine. Also, wish there was a small area for cable runs INSIDE the shelves. Overall though I am pleased with the desk.

Went together easily. Front corner of the top on the desk was damaged in shipping. When I called customer service, they were very helpful and shipped a new top out to me. That piece arrived in good condition.

Solid product w/simple & functional design. Looks great. Carpener assembled and affixed it, so I don't know if assembly is suitable for layperson.

This desk is being used in a small space, so its perfect. I installed it at standing desk height. If you are hanging it on traditional wood studs you'll have no problems. We have metal studs and it was a bear to hang. Now that it's up it works perfectly for me. Purchased hutch to go along.
The floating hutch and matching desk make a great study area for my 8 yr old. His computer work and homework can be done in one easy to reach and space-saving area. I even lowered the hutch so that he reaches it without a step stool. He uses this area and storage on a daily basis. It works out better than I anticipated. The quality for both items was better than expected too.
I bought this because I could mount it on the wall higher so it could be a standing desk. Great quality materials and went together easily. Will require two people to lift when you mount it to the wall, but hardware made it very simple.
I bought this desk because of the smaller footprint. We have limited area and I didn't want anything taking up floor space. Voila, the perfect solution. Actually was pretty easy to put together. I had read a few bad reviews but they were old and it appeared to me (as I was assembling the piece), that they had resolved the issues. The only difficulty we ran in to was that our studs aren't precisely the width apart as indicated. Came up with a resolution though and works perfectly! If I had one negative it would be the weight of the unit. However, I'm not sure they could use lighter material without compromising quality. Definitely considering the larger unit for my husband's office!
Great desk! Very clean and neat looking, not too bad to install. Recommendation: Before purchasing check to see what kind of studs are in your wall. We had metal studs, and my husband had to learn a bit to drill through them and mount the desk correctly!
