I needed a very compact desk to fit a short wall. I compared a few desks that would fit the area, but due to the great reviews decided to buy this one. Negative: 1) The entire desk is made from particle board, unfortunately. 2) The unit is "extremely" heavy and hurt my back just trying to get the box indoors. 3) The box arrived with damage, though the desk was unharmed by it, luckily. 4) 2 Large screws were missing to complete building the desk. 5) The plastic end pieces are cheap looking and off color. 6) The center base piece of the hutch is not tall enough to seal to the desk properly so you see the glue and the wooden dowls at desk level. Positive: 1) The delivery service for the desk was great! 2) The desk is sturdy enough and fits the short wall. 3) Building the desk was fairly easy and straightforward, even though the directions are illustrations only. *** Be sure to triple check the directions and proper piece alignment before building at every step. *** Summary: The desk is cheaply made and I expected better for $@#$. I hate the plastic parts which make the desk look and feel cheap. I gave the 2 stars for the positive reasons stated above. To return the desk after it has been built is rather difficult to impossible because parts of the desk had to be glued together. I would not recommend this to a friend.
