    Cabinet doesn't assemble well. Replacement parts were not good, but workable. Desk is good.

  • Not worth the money or time
    Verified Purchase

    Awful piece. Holes did not line up correctly with dowels. Dowel was too long to fit tightly into holes so this file cabinet would not ever be able to be connected correctly. The pieces that were made of wood were sturdy and probably would look nice when assembled but because it would not stay together, i have to return it. There were many, many pieces with this file drawer and it will take a lot of patience to assemble. I do not believe it is worth your time or money.

  • love it!
    Verified Purchase

    I was so hesitant to buy because of the other reviews, but I absolutely love this desk. Husband put it together and said it wasn't too difficult. It looks just like the picture...a lovely espresso finish. Very stylish. Great value. Highly recommend it!

  • Didn't come in pristine shape
    Verified Purchase

    I liked this product and it's style. It came in fairly decent condition but one peice of the cart had a crack in it and there were scratches on multiple parts of the item. It is a great style and size but trouble with shipping. It also was very simple to put together. Took some time but not complicated as long as you read the directions.

  • lovely desk, imperfect piece, dealing with it.
    Verified Purchase

    The desk is perfect size, height & space for my son who is 6'4" & strong. Think linebacker :) This was a birthday present. He received it & was excited to put it together, but found that the holes drilled for the runners did not line up appropriately to allow smooth drawer action. Disappointing.

  • Altra Astute Desk and File Cabinet
    Verified Purchase

    Product was packaged well, no damage upon arrival. There are some blemishes in the finish on the desk top, but nothing too bad. When assembling, take your time and pay attention to the drawings. Some drawer parts were mislabeled! Also, use a carpenters square when putting the units together. If the main parts aren't square, the drawers don't close this case, you get what you pay for!

  • Impossible Drawers
    Verified Purchase

    The desk looks nice aside from the drawers. They were impossible to assemble and are not functional. They are crooked and you can tell just by looking at them but I've taken so much time trying to figure out the problem that I've given up. Disappointed.

  • Drawers do not fit hanging files!
    Verified Purchase

    1. My unit was damaged when I received it. - A small dent on the top surface of the desk, which I didn't mind too much. - One of the drawer slide rollers was cracked in half so it doesn't work properly. 2. The file drawers do not fit hanging files. I use file folders with tabs so I can label my files. I think just about everyone does this. Anyway, the file drawers do not have enough clearance for those tabs to be sticking up above the top of the hanging file. I cannot put any of my files in either the desk or the file cabinet because the drawers won't close. This product literally does not do what it is designed for.

  • Not Perfect but Good Buy
    Verified Purchase

    You will need almost a whole day to assemble these. I read alot of the reviews before buying. It's very sturdy, kind of a pain to assemble but for the price, well worth it. Looks nice, the file cabinet was perfect but the desk was scratched and not in that great of shape but not bad enough to send back. Very good buy for the price. Everything works, drawers glide fine. I would definately buy it again.

    • A:

      Hello phyl7, MDF is an engineered wood product formed by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibers, often in a deliberator, combining it with wax and a resin binder, and forming panels by applying high temperature and pressure. We apologize for the confusion as to weather the back of the desk is finished. We are working on getting clarification on this information. Thank you for shopping with us.

  • Q:

    "Can the filing drawers be moved onto the left (opposite) sied?"

    • A:

      Thank you lauren0615 for the question about the Altra Astute Single Pedestal Desk and File Cabinet Set. Unfortunately according to the manufacturer the drawers are for that side on this unit only. We do carry a very large selection of desks with the drawers on the left side so that may be another option. We hope that was helpful and thank you for shopping

  • Q:

    "We received this product and discovered that one of the drawers was assembled incorrectly by the manufacturer. We have the whole desk assembled except this one drawer, and it was delivered more than 30 days ago so we can't return it. Will the manufacturer send us just the one drawer that is defective?"

    • A:

      The manual says they will send you missing or defective parts at no charge.

    • A:

      Hello ewhiting, Thank you for contacting us regarding you issue with the Altra Astute Single Pedestal Desk and File Cabinet Set. You will be contacted by Customer Care.

  • Q:

    "IS the back finished so desk can face outward or must it be placed against a wall?"

    • A:

      Thank you for your interest on the Altra Astute Single Pedestal Desk and File Cabinet Set. The back is finished on this item.

  • Q:

    "Don't you mean the largest deminsion is Long not Deep? I think it is backwards.Pls. clarify before we purchase."

    • A:

      Thank you for your interest in the Altra Astute Single Pedestal Desk and File Cabinet Set. The dimensions on the web site are correct.

  • Q:

    "Are the backs of the desk and drawers finished?"

    • A:

      Thank you for your question on this beautiful desk. The back panel is MDF with single sided paper, so it isn't finished on the back.

    • A:

      Earlier you said it IS finished on the back. Now you are saying it is not. Which answer is correct?

  • Q:

    "How wide is the opening for the chair? What's the width between the inside of the left leg and the drawers? And what's the height up to the bottom of the keyboard tray?"

    • A:

      Desk dimensions: 23.6 inches long x 47.5 inches deep x 30.25 inches high File cabinet dimensions: 18 inches long x 21.5 inches deep x 24 inches high So, let's do the math: 47.5-18 = 29.5" wide (see as erroneously described deep) 30.25 - assumed 3" for keyboard tray = 27.5" high even if it is 4" for the keyboard tray, it would be 26.5" ample space. My son is 6'4" and is very happy with the size of the leg opening :)
