My first delivery included major damage (from factory, not shipping) to the laminate surface. I wish I had returned the whole set then. Waited another month for overstock to get replacements sent to me. They were not in perfect condition, but I was in desperate need of desk by then. I will be making do with this for the time being. Pros: desk set is very large and very sturdy two file cabinets included have three drawers each so you get very good storage while it took a long time to put together, the instructions were good and thorough .Cons: the quality of the laminate finish is poor, lots of sloppy corners, glue residue, rough edges The laminate is easity "etched" and scratched. If you slide a magazine across surface and it has even a tiny piece of grit on it, you will get marks in the surface. Pretty much everything, including items with felt protectors will leave a mark the return that connects the desk and credenza is very narrow, barely room to move back and forth (although I guess it could be a pro for some people as you can sit in your chair, spin in a circle and reach everything the keyboard drawer attached within a couple of inches of the return so you have to sit with your chair flush up against the return to type on your keyboard...miserable for your back. BAD design
The surface finish and quality were generally poor. When I asked the manufacturer for a 'touch-up kit' they sent me a piece of crayon. It would have been more trouble to return it, than to keep it after assembly. My recommendation, is DO NOT BUY IT!
