It was over priced. Other sites sell this for $$$ less than I purchased it such as **********. The surface got scratched up easily. Paint peels off if you try to paint the scratches. The legs wobble even if it's screwed well. Don't buy from Overstock.Read More

Bought this to use as a sewing center. Was so inspired that I ended up doing a small update on my laundry/sewing room. I have a white one purchased a few years ago that I use for my home office. They are great products.Read More
east to assemble and great size for extra work area. Purchased two to go side by side behind desk. The drawers are not on glides so they stick a little but can't complain for the price.Read More
My first desk arrived damaged (bottom of one of the drawers was broken), and the customer service was great! Long story short because UPS did not come to pick it up I got to keep it and will put it to good use in my son's first post college apt! The second one that came was in great shape except for a small nick on the front which was easily colored in with black magic marker. It is a beautiful piece and feels solid, easy to put together (just the legs), but I can see how the finish would chip easily. I am using it in a guest room so I'm sure it will be fine. I put a blotter on top so a laptop won't chip it and it's great. Other reviews talked about the finish chipping easily. For the price I think its great!Read More
Got two of these desks (the second was a replacement of the first, which we had hoped was defective). Both suffer from the same problem - the finish comes right off the desk exposing all white material. This happens from normal use - moving a keyboard around, moving paper around, etc... It happened immediately with both desks, during the first day of use. I would not buy this desk if you expect the finish to last. Having said all of this, if you are looking for a sturdy nice sized (this is the largest desk of its kind/style I found anywhere) then this is the desk for you. For its price, the desk is surprisingly sturdy and well made, but the finish is some sort of spray on cheap stuff. Overstock is fantastic with returns, so A+ for that Overstock, but this desk shouldn't even be offered for sale without a disclaimer.Read More
The desk is sturdy and well made. It was easy to assemble. It is a simple desk with two drawers. The drawers have no glides but work very well. I really like the quality black finish. It is not just the color but also the smoothness of the flat surfaces, all edges and corners of tabletop and all legs that are so pleasant to the touch. It is a handsome student desk and an excellent value. I am very pleased with its function and appearance. I highly recommend the product.Read More
I set out to find a desk that would work in my apartment bedroom alongside a queen size bed. I really liked the silhouette of the West Elm Parsons desk but the price tag was a bit high for my student budget. This desk is a great substitute and ended up being exactly what I was looking for. It has a fairly small footprint but still has plenty of space for me to comfortably keep my laptop and external monitor running while sketching notes in my notebook. Just be aware that the drawers are fairly shallow so your stapler and tape dispenser may have to live on the corner of the desk. Even though they aren't very deep I get plenty of use out of them to store paper, pens, envelopes, and other knick knacks. The assembly was incredibly easy, just a couple minutes to Allen wrench the four legs into place and I was all set. The desk seems to be well constructed and is sturdy enough not to wiggle around while I'm writing or typing.Read More
I wanted to wait a while before writing this review so that I could be more comprehensive. This desk looks great. It's sleek, glossy, and contemporary. However there are several major problems with it. When I received it, both drawers had HUGE cracks in them, to the point of interfering with their purpose (one of them only opens halfway. They're also so shallow that three stacks of normal post-its are too tall to fit. Like a few other reviews stead, the finish does chip when nearly anything touches it. I'm fairly meticulous about my desk space and being careful of the surface, but this is my main desk and after 8-9 month, its got specks of white ALL over it. I wish it had been cheaper... maybe worth $80-100 given that I'll have to replace it soon. I'd have returned it when I first received it with cracked drawers and the first chip that my carpet (yes, carpet) gave it while assembling, however the shipping process with this company is such a hassle that I just gave up and counted my losses there. I did struggle with 2 or 3 starts in the rating, given that theoretically, this could be a nice desk without its flaws. I hope this review comes off as fair as possible. I hate to be the one with the negative review amongst a bunch of good ones... hopefully others have had better experiences than me.Read More
This is my second one I bought the first one in 2008 and my hubby wanted it so I finally purchased another for matching desks in our office....I have my printer, flat screen and computer on this desk. 2 handy drawers also...I know not to get water on it according to past reviews and they are very strong desks! So easy to put together the drawers are already in.Read More
