    I bought this writing desk a few days ago. Despite their fast shipping, this writing desk is very easy to put them together. The desk is not that small, it still has space available after I put my laptop there and other paper works. Since I don’t have that much room available in my bedroom, it fits perfectly in my room with limited space. I really recommend it to people who want a comfortable workplace with a little space.

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? good
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. good
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? excellent
  • I'll let you know when I finally finish Step 1

    I've been working on Step 1 for two hours, and I still haven't gotten it put together. And I'm the handy one in the house. Ugh. Miniscule diagrams with poor labeling of parts. I'm having to take a break, and I thought I would be nearly done by now.

  • Black X Writing Desk

    I received the desk a few days after I purchased but when I opened the box (which was badly beat up), some of the wood pieces were damaged. The wood on some of the pieces is flimsy. In addition, the instructions were not clear whatsoever so I can see the frustration other purchasers had. The picture looks like a high-quality sturdy desk, but it's very light weight wood.

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Correct Color
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Poor Quality
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? OK
  • Poor Directions and Quality

    The directions and hardware were some of the worst I have ever dealt with-and I have assembled numerous pieces of furniture. It had some worn places on the finish and the wood is soft and the hardware bubbles the wood when assembling. I needed this table for an office utility closet. It will not be seen by anyone but the computer guy, so I am keeping it because I had the exact square inches where it fit.

  • Looks great,assembly instructions not specific.

    Once its assembled it looks great, but the screws that came with it were very poor quality and broke. We ended up using different screws. Also the assembly instructions are awful, Luckily my husband figured it all out by himself. For someone who is not that handy you will definitely have problems putting it together. In our case it would have been more trouble to return it.

  • Desk we are using for a printer stand

    My husband bought an expensive printer that will print professional photos. We needed a stand for it and this small desk works perfectly. It is sturdy and well made. The drawer is nice to store photo paper. Very happy with it and especially for the price!

  • Nice little desk

    We needed to fit 7 desks in a 110 square foot office and these fit the bill. They were well packaged, easy to assemble, and look nice. Only wish is that they were a little higher so you could easily use with a chair with arms, but otherwise they are great.

  • Too many parts!

    Desk looks nice once we finished assembling. Took me 3 hours to put together. Too many parts and instructions can be confusing.
