received this office module within 3 days of ordering and am completely tickled pick. it completes the furnishing of my new house and looks beautiful. the set is solid and true to the picture in color and appearance. as instructions recommend - definately use 2 people for assembling - especially when lifting the hutch onto the desk, it is very heavy. assembly took only 4 hours for all 5 pieces, with the hutch taking most of the time. the instructions are very sketchy, leaving many questions unless you are able to picture the set assembled. watch the hardware for the hinges on the doors - we ended up scratching our head for about 20 minutes when the doors wouldnt line up properly. after examining the hinges again - the 2 outside hinges and the 2 inside hinges are definately different - but the instructions didnt indicate that. we assembled one piece at a time in another room, then placed it exactly where it needed to be in the office, and we attached the desk and the credenza last after all other parts were placed. get your computer and other items in place and wired up before moving this set to the wall. this set is definately heavy and you will not be able to move it around after it is assembled. i opted to reverse the desk and the credenza and put the hutch on the desk which leaves much more room for the computer equipment, as this is in a home office. it is one gorgeous set and for 4 hours worth of assembly, it is DEFINATELY worth the savings. you would spend over $4,000 for a set like this in a furniture store.
