This is a quality product that I am very pleased with. The oak/putty combination is attractive. It is a very practical piece of office furniture. Currently we are using it for our last remaining "old style" TV that allows us to move the heavy TV around. We plan to use it as a printer stand after that.

Exactly as described. Makes an excellent side table for my main desk. The materials are high quality, and I like that the corners of the work surface are rounded. The castors are large and sturdy, so it's easy to roll the table around even on carpet. I got the putty/oak combination, and it's actually attractive in an office-furniture sort of way. I needed to find someone to put it together for me, but there were not very many parts, and in the scheme of putting things together, it looked pretty easy.

I managed to assemble the desk solo in about an hour and a half, and the result was surprisingly sturdy for the price. No shipping damage on any parts and everything was included. Medium oak was a little darker than I expected, but looks good. Only complaint is that the keyboard shelf could have used a few more mounting holes inbetween the top set and the lowest one to give more height flexibility. I might drill some holes to adjust keyboard height if I can't live with current lowest setting. Overall, very happy with purchase at this price.

Yes, this unit was dropshipped at my front door, literally. One of the corners of the desktop came extremely damaged. Not much thought, or any extra padding for that matter was used on the desktop corners. Not only that, the unit was the wrong color. The box label stated it was Medium Oak, however was packed with Dark Cherry. They use cheap simulated shiny laminate paper as a desktop surface. Since then, I had Overstock give me a refund. Not sure I want to order another 5 units to get the right one.

This Desk is wonderful for hobbies of all kind or for your home office. We bought the oak Putty color, and love it. Nothing around this city could come even close to the price of this piece. If you are looking for a lifetime investment for your craft hobby or office this is the desk for you. This desk is easy to wipe down for cleaning, and features a high compression laminate top that will probably never get damaged. One draw back is you will need two really strong men to assemble it or turn it over for you once assembled because it weights almost 200 pounds. This one draw back is why I gave it 4 stars. The closest any furniture store could come on a steel desk with return locally was $1100.00. The substantial savings is worth assembly, plus if it's going into a smaller room for crafts you can assemble it right in the room it's staying in. Thank You O for this great value.

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 began looking for desks as we were redoing our home office. We have a dedicated office, double door entrance, and it is nearly 10x10. Not a huge room, but because it is a designated office and not sharing space for anything else, I wanted to put a large desk in there. I always go to Costco.com first...and I used to say, "if you can buy it at Costco, you can't get it anywhere else for less." I was wrong. I really loved the two tone color of this desk. Because I have a tray ceiling with ceiling fan that is made out of honey oak, in addition to honey oak floors, the light colored surface on this desk was just what I wanted. I first saw this on Costco's website, but it was called "Merrick." I found that odd because when I started searching online, I kept on seeing "Manhattan" as the name of this model. I called the manufacturer and was very pleased with her knowledge. She confirmed that Costco was selling the "Manhattan" and that they often buy lots of items and rename them, which they did in this case. Okay, so I knew that it was the same--now I just had to start doing some price comparison. Costco sold the desk for $***. Even though it was free shipping, there was tax. Bottom line, I got the same desk from Overstock for over $*** less than if I had purchased it at Costco. It arrived about 7-10 days from the day I ordered it. They called our house and set up a time/date that my husband would be home for the shipment. I already knew it was over 400 pounds and that it would be in the garage and I would probably build it slowly...piece by piece. Well, it was built in about a day and a half. I enjoyed putting it together, although my kitty-cat kept on trying to sneak pieces out of the room! Sneaky girl. Anyway, every time the instruction indicated two people, I would call my husband up and he would help me do whatever step I was on...and if it shows two people--trust me, YOU NEED two people, I don't care how strong and/or coordinated you may think you are....that's not relevant. There was a small hiccup near the end. Because there are a few options for the "bridge," there were no holes drilled for the support beam that connects to either side of the desk. So other than husband having to drill a few holes on either side for that, it was super easy to assembly. I did buy the pencil drawer that goes under the desk. I'm so glad I did....I ended up finding it on Office Depot for half the cost on Bestar's website. I found a lot of drawers that would fit that were 1" deep--but I really wanted the 2" deep drawer and it is perfect. There was a slight defect in one of the doors (#61)...almost as if water had gotten to it awhile back and the compressed wood was starting to separate. After I was finished, I contacted Bestar and they shipped out one immediately for no cost. Also, the area underneath the desk is HUGE. I have a little stand that I used to have my printer on under there. It fits PERFECT in the corner and you can't even see it and it is so far away from your legs you never bump into it (big area under there!). I have one of those metal in baskets that have about six slots and I have my extra ink cartridges, envelopes, a few cords for various devices. One thing to mention while you are building your desk. BE CAREFUL with the pieces. I don't know exactly what this is made out of but it does scratch. You have to be mindful of this and only set it down on blankets and such, but it will scratch. Why the company doesn't send a crayon stick with the desk is beyond me, but I asked for one when I requested the replacement door. Oddly enough, there must be a shortage because I got a crayon about the size of 1/6 of a regular sized crayon! But it was all I needed so I guess they know what they are doing. I am so glad I took a chance and ordered this desk....I absolutely love it and I couldn't imagine anything else in my office. Dawn
