I am so impressed with everything about this workstation! Even though the boxes had holes and looked pretty rough when it arrived, the product was packaged very well , and there was no damage what so ever. Putting the workstation together took some time, but the instructions were easy to understand, and the pieces and hardware are all excellent quality. None of the hardware stripped out and all the pre-drilled holes matched easily. This piece is heavy and constructed well; very solid. Everything fit tightly. There was a little confusion with the freight carrier, who misplaced 4 of the 5 boxes for a few days, but Overstock Customer Service was amazing. They followed up with the carrier themselves and ordered me a replacement right away when I called them about it. I ended up getting the first workstation and getting it put together, verified there was no damage to any of the pieces, and called Customer Service again to cancel the replacement order. They took care of everything, and I never had to wait more than a minute to talk to someone! Excellent, excellent customer care!
This is a great desk. It is very heavy and sturdy. I bought this for my husband when he opened his law firm and we are very pleased with it. It arrived in only 3 days after I ordered it which was great. Some of the instructions were a little hard to follow because the pieces where not labled, but over all it wasn't too bad. I would recommend two or more people helping because it is so heavy. It is very expesive looking and much bigger than I thought it would be but I am very happy with it.
Put this in a law firm. Half the price of a good used one. It looks great and the color is nice. Not as orange as it looks in the picture. Took 4 - 4.5 hours to put together. Very clean look with lots of space. If you are going for the lateral file, it says it fits underneath, but it doesn't. Make sure you have the extra space.
I was hesitant only because the size of this piece of furniture would make returning a chore. However, once we received and set it up, there was no doubt that this is an awesome desk, beautifully finished and designed, and enhances my home. I work out of my home, and this desk is solid, heavy, well designed, and stable. It is large enough to accommodate two computers (one for work and one for home), two monitors, a printer, and numerous files, office supplies, personal paperwork, etc... I am thrilled with this purchase and highly recommend this product. I also highly recommend Overstock.com - have not been disappointed with anything I have bought. It arrived well packaged and protected, wrapped and labeled, with no shipping damage. Only caution about this desk: very, very heavy. Bringing the delivery into the house and setting it up was a multi-stage task for us, and my husband needed another strong man to help while he was putting fastening the larger sections together. If you buy this, line up help ahead of time and plan on a long day. It took a good 3-4 hours to put all together once we had it in the house and laid out by section.
This desk arrived shortly after ordering. Extra "nuts and bolts" were included, always a nice thing. This desk is very heavy and well built. The directions are okay for a handy person, but the doors on the hutch can be a little tricky. As I said the desk is very heavy so make sure you have help putting it together. I put this desk in a very large office....don't buy this if you don't have a very large area. This desk is massive!! Great value, I couldn't be happier.
This desk is definitely worth more than $1,000. It is very solid, and much larger than I anticipated. The instructions are okay, not great, but certainly understandable. It took about 4 hours to assemble and it is amazing. More than enough room for me, and very, very pleasing to look at. I am thrilled at the purchase, and highly recommend. I love the brackets they included to keep all pieces attached and prevent sliding. I think this desk would cost around $2,500 to $3,500 in a furniture store. Excellent buy, and I am well pleased.
Got our desk about 10 days after order was placed. The parts came in 3 boxes and the instructions were clear. It took my husband a couple of hours to put it together, with my help sometimes. It was that big that we decided to skip the bridge and split the piece in 2 desks. I have 1 table, hutch and filing cabinet in use as a regular desk on one end of the room, the other table, which s bigger i am using to work on my scrapbooking., i got 2 or 1 and i am very happy with it.

This office configuration is so great looking that it puts most executive offices to shame. Just make sure you have help when putting together, as it's very heavy (good thing), and that you measure well. It takes up a whole room. Which in our case is what we wanted. Like to be able to add matching pieces, such as bookshelf and filing cabinets.
- How accurate was the sizing? It's accurate
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Much heavier than anticipated. Much prettier wood color than anticipated.
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? No defects, good instructions. But you probably should not tackle this if you never put furniture together yourself before.

I bought this very desk from a local discount office furniture store. That said, it was not inexpensive - I paid a lot more than this and I'm still very happy with the desk. I don't think Overstock had them at the time - either that or I was wary of buying something this large and expensive without seeing it. The desk is good quality, sturdy, attractive, and very functional. If we need to add to the office you can be certain I will purchase the next desk from Overstock.com. You won't be disappointed with this.
The desk is of good quality and arrived quickly. The assembly instructions are, shall we say, "minimalist". Room for improvement there, especially for people new to assembling furniture. Two people are definitely required to do the job. I asked a friend, who is a general contractor, to help put the thing together. It took 5-6 hours, but all the parts fit and it looks great. One thing: there is no method provided to attach the rear cabinet piece to the credenza! This is important, as you do not want the cabinets to fall on you during an earthquake, etc. We wound up making a trip to the hardware store and bought some strong steel hinges to hold the two pieces together. One wish: that there was a second set of drawers available to fit under the credenza.
