Order in advance, as the lead time was a while. Came to us by freight carrier with out warning. Luckily I was close, and available to run right over. If your a little scared of putting things together this may be a bit challenging. Not for the faint of heart. I got two so I had to put them together myself. Overwhelming at time even with an engineering mindset. Do yourself a favor and map out which side you want the bridge to go on beforehand and paper clip closed the directions to the exact pages needed. I did this on second go around it was much smoother that way. But, it's not rocket science either. Overall, if you need a good desk for the cash. It's a good one.
Finished workstation looks great. Drawers not lining up so well, will use something else. Cord slot perfect for adjusting along hutch/desk while still covering access. Handles cheesy, will replace. Otherwise, he loves it!

I got a huge discount at a holiday sale, coupled with Club O rewards. It looks great. Took about 4 hours to put together by myself. I did use power tools. One MAJOR downside is that the wood chips somewhat easily. I looks like it is a mid-grade desk, and you certainly get what you pay for. If you are looking for high end, this is not it. I would probably buy again. As of the date of this review, I have had for about 4-5 months.
I work from home and really needed something bigger. I've seen similar set-ups at furniture stores before, but could only dream of something like this as it was not affordable. When I saw this, I could not believe it! The quality is excellent. Drawers line up for me (saw someone else post that the drawers did not line up - I had no problems). Putting it together was pretty easy. I started by myself, but at some point 2 people are necessary. There were several pieces (Part #: TI-552), that were plastic and needed to be forced into holes with a hammer. They are slanted on top where the hammer hits, so it isn't easy to get them in and on one the top broke off while the bottom part was already almost all the way stuck in the wood. We couldn't get the broken piece out of the wood, but we were able to work around it, but I wish they would use metal for those. So be careful with those. That is the only complaint. Otherwise it is so awesome. I have so much room now. There is plenty of room in the center for a large computer chair to turn all the way around. And I love the lock on the drawers. I don't need it, but I still think its cool. I simply love my desk and can recommend it to anyone that needs something with a lot of space! My dogs love it too!!! Plenty of room for them to sleep by my feet without me stepping on them! lol.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is better than what I had expected. Compared to other furniture I purchased in the past, that needed assembly, this was the best quality ever!
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes! The boxes were a bit beat up on arrival, but everything is wrapped in plastic before packed in a box to prevent pieces to slide and rub/scratch each other! There was no damage to anything.
The desk was large enough for the space we had in mind. It is of good quality for the money, the chairs that we ordered with it were outstanding in quality and color. Matched perfectly.
- How accurate was the sizing? Better than expected.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? No, it had some minor nicks...
Be sure that you follow the instructions exactly. I is a great clean look and feel, and exactly what I hoped!
- How accurate was the sizing? Perfect!
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great quality for the size and price! This was the best deal that I found even after looking into the wholesale arena.

I've had the desk for a year now and am fairly happy with it. Delivery was an issue. The first one was pretty banged up, so I sent it back. The second one was also damaged, but since the damage was small and I had waited so long, I kept it. It took a very very long time to put together, but the instructions were pretty good and no parts were missing. It's fairly sturdy and doesn't wobble when someone walks by, but it isn't rock solid, either. The middle doors on the back part do not line up perfectly, no matter how we tried to adjust them. Also, the laminate chips fairly easy, so you need to be careful when assembling. But it looks beautiful, it functions well, and I like it. The one major flaw is that it has no pre-drilled holes to run cords through. I really think they should have added that. I'd like to hide my ugly cords. I have to have my desktop on the desk because the monitor cord would be hanging down right in front of the desk if I had the PCU beneath the desk. I may drill my own hole, but a nice pre-drilled hole or two with a plastic liner insert would have been nice.
I am very satisfied with the desk, is big and very practical, just what I was looking for a long time and for a very good price. The overall quality, for the price, is good. My only downside is the corners are very sharp and uncomfortable if you let your arms rest there when writing or typing in the keyboard.
I love this desk. A pain to put together but just take your time. It was packaged very well and I had no parts issues. I'm so glad I saw this on Overstock. I was looking at other sites and the prices were 3 times more for lesser style desk.
