Rehabing an office that had not been used in 15 years for an IT group. Using measurements provided ordered and hoped. Pleasantly surprised by the quality and strength of the desk. Beautiful. If there is a downside to this desk it is that it did not have a drawer, other thank filing cabinet. Problem easily solved with an add on purchase for $45.00. Easy Fix. For Pen,pencil and post-it storage. Wonderful product.

I ordered this desk to get something more upscale. Overall, the quality is there, but there were a couple of issues, only with the "P" portion of the desk. First, the pole had oxidation/rust on it. I was able to rub most of it out. Second, the bridge attaches to the underneath sides of the credenza and the "P" desk, and also the side of the credenza, but not the side of the "P". There are threaded bolt holes on the credenza side, but not the "P" side. The way it is, the bridge it actually about 1/2 inch off the floor so the only support on the left is the screws holding it to the underneath of the "P". There are holes on both sides of the credenza, but no receiving bolt holes on the "P" desk. I called the manufacturers customer service number and they were very knowledgeable and polite. The lady said that the bridge is used also with the rectangular desk, which has the bolt holes, but the "P" desk does not. I could not see a valid reason for the lack of them, especially since there are exposed holes on the bridge that would work if there were receiving bolt holes. In addition, the fact that the bridge does not rest on the ground means its full weight is supported on the right and top only, but not the left. Seems sturdy, but would be better with the proper holes. In sum, I would order this brand again, but instead of this figuration, get the rectangular desk - it is a better choice. Also, the "P" desk makes it hard for two chairs to sit side by side across from you.

Product arrived quickly, about 1 week after order. The boxes were shrink wrapped on a pallet, but the original pallet was badly beaten up. Still, the parts were very well packages, so they were not damaged. Was pretty easy to put together, but heavy and takes 2 people to bring in and put together. The only issue of any consequence is the way the bridge is attached to the other 2 pieces. Reading the instructions in the box, the bridge has 2 brackets that attach to the underside of the bridge and the other 2 pieces. The desk area does has bolt near the bottom that the bridge overlaps and can be screwed into to make a more secure attachment, however, the other side does not have the same bolt, so this side cannot be attached the same way. This has no appearance or sturdiness concerns, but would complete the attachment. Overall, this is fantastic piece and would look even better with another Mayline desk.
