I think the value of this desk for the price was excellent. It is our first home office and this desk definitely does the trick. Quality and value both superb, only problem was this was NOT very easy to put together. I am a 24 yr old female, so I know that's not my strong suit, but I actually really enjoy putting items together, bookcases, new electric fireplace we bought, dining table we got for our new home. I have put everything together and this was no easy task, but if I can do it, so can you! Great buy!
