Overall, I'm very happy with the finished product. The paper-on-composite finish is not my favorite because I'm not sure of its durability, but the overall appearance is great. Drawers are deep and there's a lot of space in the desktop cubbies and in the hutch. The brushed metal pulls give the desk a more professional look. I put it together myself (it took several hours but the directions were very good and all the parts were labeled) and I only needed another person to assist when finally lifting the large top onto the base. The desk is delivered in 3 separate boxes, one of which was really roughed up during shipping...but Overstock customer service was fantastic and worked quickly to replace the damaged parts. The bottom line: the desk is really good looking, very sturdy and extremely functional. I'm very pleased with my purchase and, as always, with Overstock.com.

I bought this as my gaming desk. I eventually want to get dual monitors, they will fit just fine. I love all the storage areas. The color is darker and looks better in person. It came in 3 boxes, make sure you open all of them because mine came with 5 different sets of directions depending on which one you purchased. Mine has the extra drawers on one side with the hutch attachment. Half of the stuff wasn't labeled so I had to keep referring to a picture of it to figure it out. It took my husband and I 7 hours both working to assemble it. It has a lot of wooden pegs with glue to put in. When you install the keyboard tray you can choose how much room you want, I made mine have the most space. Overall I am very happy besides the parts missing labels.
I really like the fit and finish of the desk, and the manufacturers responsiveness is great. Building it was a challenge though. The steps were easy enough but the box for the drawer section was missing some hardware and a couple of parts for the hutch were broken. In both cases the manufacturer had the replacements mailed out to me immediately. It would have only taken 3 or 4 hours to assemble if all the parts had been present and functional and only need a second person for the final few steps.
The desk is prefab laminate type material and not high end furniture. It was easy to assemble. The piece inside the file drawer was broken (plastic insert to hang pendaflex folders on), but they replaced it quickly, no hassle, and free of charge including the delivery. This was the cheapest site I found this product. The color is a little dark than I expected (dark than oak but not as dark as mahogany, but it is close enough to mahogany to put next to that color in the same room). I love the reversible options. I was not in love with the above desk cabinet. It was not sturdy and the certain openings between doors are useless. The doors don't hang perfectly straight or really stay shut exactly the way you would want either.
Exactly what was ordered. Quick and fast delivery... (Faster than expected).... The only negative I have is the keyboard shelf is too shallow. But, with a little modification, IT'S GREAT!!!!!! The Sells People were fantastic.... LOTS of help and knowledge!!!!!!!. WILL buy from again............
