When I ordered this Computer Desk, based on the price and photos, I thought I'd be getting a mid-range product.
I was pleasantly surprised that the quality of the wood, and the workmanship of the piece is MUCH nicer than expected! I paid twice the price for my last computer desk and it isn't as nice as this one!
It was packed VERY well (extra padding is added on both sides so no worries about getting corners banged up unless grossly mishandled in shipping).
I was not looking forward to the assembly of the piece -- but to find out all you need to complete, assembly wise, is screw on the legs with the little hex wrench which is supplied in the hardware pack.
The instructions don't point this out -- but the legs are boxed separately and are securely put in the computer tray/drawer (with foam around the box to prevent moving around in shipping).
The computer drawer / keyboard mouse holder slides out very smoothly, and to change from having it as just a drawer, to having it as a keyboard/mouse holder, you just simply unlatch two push pieces on the side of the drawer.
This is a very solid -- well made desk - and is definitely a GREAT BUY!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? A little darker in person - actually nicer in person.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very HIGH Quality especially for the price!

Overall, the desk looks nice in design, and the color is a nice (dark) cherry wood stain. The legs of the desk appear thick enough and stable enough. The cord opening at the back of the drawer is sufficiently wide, and the plastic casing for the cord case is good. The drawer slide mechanism has a nice smooth glide and the front part of the drawer folds down nicely to perfectly level with the drawer base (which makes it easier to use the keyboard and mouse). Also, the assembly was fairly easy - just 4 legs to put on, with 2 bolts each. Particularly helpful is that the Allen wrench fits fully into the space where the bolts need to be turned - a design consideration that is sometimes missed, but helpfully not with this desk.
The challenge with the desk is mainly quality of assembly and packaging. The first desk that I received (same model) was badly damaged - the drawer was cracked, there were large dents on the front and sides - however, the shipping box and styrofoam didn't have corresponding damage - they looked fine. Overstock customer service was excellent, I was able to get someone on the phone relatively quickly, they were very accommodating and friendly about the issue, and assisted me with arrangements to replace. The replacement desk was in much better shape, but unfortunately still had a dent on the side, a wood piece (not visible) has a crack, and the drawer when closed isn't flat against the front. (I am choosing not to replace again as I'm concerned the next one might be closed to the level of damage as the first). Also, the box mysteriously included about 5 wood screws which are not part of assembly but were loose in the box - fortunately I noticed them before my two-year old did, I haven't figured out if they came off the desk - there doesn't appear to be empty screw holes. One minor note on design, the drawer front is not secured by magnets as I expected, instead it's got latches that require a push down separately on both sides to get the drawer to open -a bit of an inconvenience to open, on the other hand (as opposed to a magnet mechanism which would be easier to open) it may keep a child from playing with it to the point of breaking it.
If I could get the same desk for $100 +/- more, but have comfort that it could be delivered dent-free and crack free and have improved construction, I would go for that.

I would recommend buying this desk. For the quality you get, it's a great price. The only downside was that there was one small chip on the front of the desk, so there is a small eyesore where the veneer is chipped away. Other than that, the desk was packed perfectly. Easy assembly and an altogether quality piece. The color is just as it appears on the site.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. This desk looks very high end for the cost. The cherrywood veneer looks real and the quality of the hardware is equally as nice.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? The on-site description of the product was great, except I wish I could have seen a demo photo of the drop down drawer. I read that in a few reviews, but didn't really understand how it worked until I received the desk in person.
I read the reviews on many desks, from many stores, before purchasing this one. As it is in my bedroom, I wanted it to be attractive and not too large. It's perfect. Great quality. Nice color. There is a large drawer in center that holds just about anything you would want to put inside. I am thrilled with my purchase.
I was looking for a very simple desk/table to put in my living room, when I came across this desk. Very well priced, and wood -- where the other items I found were equal to or more costly and usually composite and veneer. However, I was confused by the description that said there was a grommet for wire management, since I wanted the table to be free-standing (i.e., not up against a wall), so I submitted a question about that. My concern was whether there was a hole through the edge for wires -- so if you were facing the desk, you would see that hole. The reply to my question said this wouldn't be a problem. Well, not so. 3 inch hole with a wire guide, right in the desk edge. Although I am very bothered by this, I did decide to keep the desk because it's really beautiful, very substantial, looks like a much pricier piece and serves my purpose. Grommet and hole aside, I am very pleasantly surprised and impressed with the quality and value.

We ordered this as a work from home desk for my husband. We had looked at local furniture stores and didn't really find what we needed at the price we wanted to spend. This desk is just perfect in size and price, good quality.

Table had been dropped in transit with two dents in the edge that I had to sandpaper out. They presented a safety hazard.
The fit of the underskirt was inaccurate so when unscrewed in one leg in a corner where two skirts meet it cracked one of them - the 4" crack going right through the table being visible along the left side of the table.
I really can't be bothered to return this.

Hi 1jstop, The previous response is correct; it is made of birch veneer and poplar solid wood. Cherry refers to the finish. Thank you for shopping with us.

Sorry, don't mean to be dense but I don't understand your answer. The description says "grommet on back". To me that sounds like there is a a hole that is on the back face of the desk. I probably won't have wires at all. I want to put the deskin the room facing the entry door. Will the desk have a hole you can see?chgmarcia on Jan 2, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I'm afraid to say the answer below is incorrect. I found this piece on another website, and it said the grommet hole was in the back of the drawer. So I ordered the desk from Overstock.com and it came today. The piece is beautiful and very well made. Unfortunately, there is a grommet hole not only in the back of the drawer, but also a grommet hole through the back face of the desk. FYI.chgmarcia on Jan 8, 2013

Is there a way to eliminate the grommet so the back is solid and the desk can be freestanding (not against a wall)?chgmarcia on Jan 2, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
It's laminated obviously, but it looks very nice. A solid hardwood desk would be in the $1000-$2000 range.woz2 on Sep 14, 2013
Are the drawer fronts a unified facia (do they drop down as one)? What's the height of the drawer space? Does it pull out as a full width shelf - 40" wide? If so, what's the depth of the shelf?pedroantonio on Nov 21, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The drawer front drops down as one. The dimension of the drawer is 19-5/8 x 2-1/4 x 31-3/4; The pull out is 17". overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 5, 2012
The drawer is quite wide but not the full width of the desk. There are 4 inch wide fixed panels to the left and right, in between the drawer and the legs. The desk top is 48 inches not 40 incheswoz2 on Sep 14, 2013
What is the wire retaining grommet used for?
What is the maximum weight capacity?robgreer on Feb 28, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This piece has a drop down lid for a laptop/keyboard and the grommet goes out from the back of the drawer ; the wood on this piece is Poplar/Cherry veneers. As far as the weight bearing capacity; it has not yet been tested; would not suggest anything real heavy like a large TV; not made for that; any weight should be distributed evenly along the top.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 2, 2012
