I love the way it looks, but the quality is quite poor. I consider myself extremely handy, but this was a pain to assemble. I read other reviews on Amazon with the same opinion about difficult assembly, but I just assumed those reviewers weren't as handy as me. I was humbled when I started the assembly of this product. MANY pieces, and the instructions were less than perfect. It took several hours and I needed help to line up the pieces while I screwed in the many connectors. Once I got it assembled, the drawers are pretty much useless. They don't line up well and I'm pretty sure once I got the top drawer to close (by slamming it violently), I don't think we'll ever get it to open... It's become the handles to drag out the desk, so I guess that's a positive... The desk DOES roll out nicely on our wood floors, so at least the main function works as expected. The filing cabinet is also hard to close, but we are using it for our filing needs. We'll see how long the drawer holds up. I actually love the way it looks in my study, but for the price, I expected higher quality I guess... I'm afraid to move it out of this room though, I can't imagine it would survive much abuse.
The packaging was excellent so the damage done was done before shipping, the sides, tops and drawers are all scratched and dented, with the fiber wood showing . I had 2 pieces replaces and they were just as bad, if not worse than the originals. I am going to try sending this back for a refund. It was fairly simple to assemble, but make sure you have two people as the pieces are heavy and awkward to work with.
Excellent buy. Assembly required but be patient ;) This desk is great for apartment living. It looks great & is functional. I get a lot of complements.
