instructions not very clear and incomplete but easy enough to figure out on your own

This desk was the perfect fit for my son who is in a wheelchair. He is able to move in and out with ease. Footrest clears both the front and back and he is able to get up close to the edge of the desk. I was trilled.

It only took about a half a hour to put together and the instructions are crystal clear. It is the perfect size for what I needed with enough room to have my tea on one side and write on the other while including my flatscreen monitor & speakers. The price was right too, so this purchase was a slamdunk!

This table is very nice & sturdy. I didn't have any issue putting this table together. The manual is clear enough to assemble the parts. I have no complain with this product and I really enjoy shopping with overstock.com. They have an excellent customer service support. The shipping is so fast as well.

Arrived in good condition. A solid attractive desk. Instructions were clear. Assembly was easy. Great for small areas & when minimal work surface is needed. Pull out mouse tray is a nice feature as it gives one a bit more space on the main surface. Overall, a great desk.

What a pleasant surprise to find that not only were all the tools and parts included in the box, but also they were neatly labeled and packaged. It was a joy to assemble this desk, which took less than an hour. Finally, a "put-it-together-yourself" manufacturer has their act together. There was no guesswork involved since the diagrams were very clear and easy to understand. This desk is sturdy and very convenient to roll in and out of rooms. Love it!

Pros: Like the dark granite finish. Great size, space saver. Nice to look at. Cons: It shakes, specially the monitor (I have a large 23" monitor so that could be it). Assembly directions NOT so clear. I inserted a wrong screw and almost ripped open a hole. Still assembled it within the hour,.

Not terribly well constructed, but probably will hold up. Instructions clear and easy to follow. The biggest problem is that it simply is not long enough to fit comfortably over a bed. You cannot lie back and use it. It is fine for use in a chair, but that is not the reason I bought it, and judging by the gushing reviews, I expected more.

sturdy and looks good. Hard to put together - instructions not clear - took a while to put together and some parts needed 2 people to put together - it functions well for my needs as I had a specific space for it to fit. The measurements in the description were accurate so it fits in my space just right

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.

Well, the pieces of the Mahogany desk are slightly different than the picture. The top is actually the same color as the side panels, and the privacy panel is silver. The instructions are clear, but there are four screws to attach the return and extension that are extremely difficult to tighten, since they are blocked by the side panels. I ended up using a screwdriver bit inside a socket. Other than that, the build seems average. Sturdy, but the desk top doesn't meet the return and extension tops perfectly flush, so there's a bit of a ridge between them. I didn't install the center drawer, as it would be right on top of my legs.

Took me under an hour to assemble (and I am not someone who assembles things very often). Directions were fairly clear...I had to refer to pictures very closely to make sure each piece was in the correct spot. Some pieces aren't numbered, but you can pretty much figure it out by the pictures. Overall, this is a good, solid laptop desk, especially for the price. The only thing I don't particularly like is that in order to adjust the height you have to physically "unscrew" the knob each time. This leaves a slight mark on the standing piece.

I wanted a large, basic desk and this is perfect. The color is a true cherry - not washed out - and vibrant. Total weight is 150 lbs and can be assembled alone until you install the top (awkward). ASSEMBLY NOTE: if you haven't worked with cams before they are very easy ( a child can do it) but the instructions I received were not clear. You have to point the arrow towards the hole. In this case there is no arrow but if you look closely at the screwdriver notches you will see one of the four is longer and somewhat pointed. Make sure that point is lined up with the corresponding hole. Snaps in quickly and easily. If you have to struggle you may be out of alignment.

The box arrived in a timely manner and was delivered to my front door. The instructions are clear, the parts are well marked, and extra bolts were included as a backup to assembly. The caddy fits perfectly in the spot needed and adjusts with little effort for either right or left hand mouse use. The wheels lock, which adds somewhat to the stability against movement and the height is easily adjustable. All-in-all, I'm pleased with the purchase and didn't have to wait for my husband to come home to assemble - I did it is about 30 minutes. Always enjoy shopping at Overstock. Thanks much!

I purchased the Marvel 72-inch Single Pedestal Steel Desk with Return; and am very satisfied with it. The price and reviews made me decided to purchase. It is a nice BIG, sturdy desk, once you get it assembled. The assembly instructions are not clear on how to attach the return / credenza; and the plate that joins the return to the main desk *DOESN'T* line up with any of the pre-drilled holes. If you buy this desk you won't be disappointed with the end result; but be prepared to spend some time on assembly; have a helper (to flip and move pieces); and have a drill and some extra hardware/screws. Overall: Good quality; good price; assembly instructions lacking.

This desk is beautiful! It was delivered earlier than expected - didn't have to wait the 5 weeks I was told it would take for delivery! I was able to put it together by myself other than placing the bow front top on. The instructions were clear, but I did struggle with the little braces it came with. The brace screws say they are self-tapping, but they aren't! Being an average-strength woman, the braces were difficult for me to install because they are so small and tight you cannot use a power drill. Other than the braces, it was a breeze! After using the desk for over a month, I am in love! It's huge and fits all my office equipment. I'm much more efficient now with everything at my fingertips! Other than a tiny bit of wear at the front edge of the desk where the wood meets the rubber trim (where I sit all day), it is a great desk for the price! Hubby has a much more expensive desk at his office and always comments on how awesome mine is!!!

I really like this desk, perfect for me. I am 4'11" and wanted a desk that i could adjust to my height needs. My guess is that it would be good for a child too. Mobility of desk is good with the caster wheels they also have breaks on the front casters. Nice storage for the wires; you can thread through the back pole and/or use the clips they provide. Instructions are clear and easy to read. All parts are labeled with appropriate numbers that match the instructions. I put together on my own with no problems. My only issue is that once the monitor is installed on the pole it is slightly close to where you sit. I can also use it as a stand up desk. Taller individuals would probably only use it as a sitting desk; it has a very large amount of adjustability. The adjustment can be done very easily, just flip the lever up, adjust to height and flip back down. The lever is on the keyboard tray and the monitor attachment. All in all I'm really happy with it.

The delivery company told me they would be here between 9 an 6. Not a great start. They got here at nearly 5 p.m., after I waited at home all day, and there was substantial damage to the box containing the top, and some minor visible damage to the desk top. Not a huge deal, but it's a brand new desk and I would like it in new condition, and given how messed up the box was, indicating an overall lack of care in handling, I was worried about additional damage not readily visible, so I refused the shipment. Called o.com and was told it had to be handled through the oversized department, will take 1-2 business days for them to contact me. So here I am 12 days after I ordered the desk, without a desk and without a clear answer about what happens next. Did they ship me a damaged box, or did it get damaged during transport? Why a 9-6 delivery window? o.com chooses the delivery company, so it's all on them. I'm not at all happy about the experience, or being left in limbo for an additional 1-2 business days.

The credenza surprised us, this piece was just as surprising, the piece is solid, material is stable. It fits perfect on top of the credenza. The doors are solid and about 1" thick and durable (they slide). The doors and tops are light blonde wood look. Matches any maple, light oak or clear coated pine. I would by this brand again. Best if you layout the parts, add the dowels and anchor acrews then assemble it. Fits together smoothly. Assemble in the order it says. Took me about 1 1/2 hours, but I did it slow. Once assembled, it will need 2 peopel to lift and place on credenza, unless you lift one side and place on creenza and then lift other side and sliding it into place. Wife loves it. Wish we could upload a photo to show you! Maybe Overstock.com should add that in their review options. With a moderater to over see images posted of ourse!

I was horrified when this item arrived and the box was long and FLAT. Urrgghhh... it needed assembled. After reviewing all the information on this item I didnt see anything that said it needed to be assembled, so I engaged in an online chat with a customer service agent who also reviewed the product information and saw nothing to indicate that this item would need to be assembled. He assured me that if it doesnt note that assembly is required, then it only requires minimal assembly like attaching the knobs or handles, etc. The actual cabinet assembly wasnt too bad, but it was very difficult for me to attach the doors. The instructions didnt give details on how to attach the door and the picture wasnt clear. After several attempts and a scratch on the front of the cabint door from a failed attempt, we finally got the doors attached. Now adjusting them... there were NO directions on how to do that, so that was difficult as well. Once assembled and adjusted so the doors line up, I really do like the cabinet. It meets my needs for our home office. I think the price was high considering that it wasnt assembled. I wouldnt have paid that much for it if I knew that in advance.
Office space is almost always limited, and desk space is especially precious. Moving items off your desk makes your workspace into more of a blank slate, where you can think with fewer distractions. You can open up space on your desk by using the appropriate shelf storage organizers and storage racks for your office space. With a few well-placed shelves, you can use space you didn't even know you had. Here are some tips to help you make the most of your work space.
