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.

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............
