  • Nice Desk.... Ameriwood Replacements NOT
    Verified Purchase

    Overstock delivered very quickly ~ as always! Upon inspection, I found the top of the desk to be cracked. I ordered a replacement from Ameriwood. Unfortunately, it will take over two weeks for this order to be processed and shipped. This desk should never have passed quality control. The crack was NOT a shipping mishap! I have assembled as far as I can so that when the top arrives (not until after the new year) it will be ready. When assembling the drawers, the side wood cracked on both sides when putting the glides in place. What a waste.... this was part of my daughter's Christmas! :(

    My son loving it. We received the item with damage but when we called the Overstock.com they replaced the item immediately with instructions. Excellent service. Thank you so much.

    Verified Purchase

    The reviews are true regarding the material of this desk. I did have pieces that was chipped, peeling and even dented. This desk would be so much better if this desk came in perfect condition. Considering how much packing material that was in the box, its amazing how much was damaged. I would recommend this desk to a friend if they don't mind the damaged up pieces. I don't mind the damaged pieces considering how I got this for a good price than what was listed. I DO recommend building this desk with 2 people. I did this by myself and it took me 6 hours ( no breaks) The next 2 days I was super sore...Legs, back, shoulder blade, the palms of my hands. It it very overwhelming at first. There is nothing pre-assembled for you. You get a bag of hardware and the desk comes in dozens of pieces. I think the worst part was that I had packing material everywhere and had to stop and clean again and vacuum the pieces itself! I did run out of the glue that came with the desk. So I used Elemer's glue. Hopefully this holds? We will see. The desk is quite roomy which I love. I like the color but wish it was just a little bit richer. The drawers are very shallow. Unlike the other reviews, I went slowly while building these as to not split the wood. Would I purchase this desk again? YES. Would I build it alone? NO but it can be done...even with the hutch. I did not do the last step with the brace. I think this desk is heavy enough that it doesn't need attached to the wall, however if you have small children you may want to do this step. I suggest reading the directions all the way through first then go back and build it. Because the directions was sometimes not to clear to me, I have a piece on backwards but I was still able to assemble the desk. Also I think some steps can be combined and some steps are out of order. But I was the designer of the desk. I'm not to fond of the plush board where you can tack things up. It cheapens the desk. I would have been more appreciative it was just a high grade cork board. I do worry about taking it off since there are four strong adhesive strips holding this up. Overall, if you don't mind small damages here and there, I would get this desk. It is spacious and elegant looking.

  • Great desk, with minor issues
    Verified Purchase

    Overall it is a great desk. Measurements are correct, but the product could use more images on the site though. The only issue with this desk is that when building the pull out drawers it is almost inevitable that you split the wood. The assembly can be done by one person but it is highly recommended that its a two person job. The hutch can be a little difficult to build with only one person. Also, since the hutch is its own piece, it can be built separately cutting down the total time of assembly.

  • Damaged, cheap material
    Verified Purchase

    Several pieces were dented or chipped. Missing a pack of cam bolts. Cheap pressed board, which wasn't a surprise considering the price, but I didn't expect it to splint during assembly. Definitely a product for short term use, but if you want a piece to keep and hold up to any kind of regular use, save yourself the effort.

  • Complicated
    Verified Purchase

    The desk is of good quality and looks nice when it is finally together. The desk top it self is a little narrow and I prefer a bigger work space. Drawers are not that deep. Lots of shelf space. It took us two days to get it all together. It had over 75 pieces and several of the smaller pieces were missing. Overstock was great and got these right to us.

  • Don't buy this!
    Verified Purchase

    Buy this only if you want to assemble for most of the day, have many damaged parts and end up with a very average 'desk'.i have one positive comment, I LOVED the video that demonstrated the cam locks. By the time this arrived over-stuffed into a shredded box due to the sheer weight, I felt like the return would be impossible. My bad.

  • Great Desk
    Verified Purchase

    We bought this for a desk for my son's room. I was really shocked at the great quality of this desk compared to other websites in the same price range. We just moved to a new house and the desk made it safely w/o damage. Directions were easy to follow and took my son and I about 2 hours to put together. Great desk!

  • Easy build and lots of storage
    Verified Purchase

    easy build, but if doing it alone it will take you a few hours to do....fast delivery.....the only negative thing that I have to say is that I find that the wood scratches easily.....however, the piece is very nice and provides ample storage room for office supplies....
