I was looking for something that was similar to the Micke desk from Ikea, ran into this one. It has three drawers, even though the description states one. I love the desk. It was a pain to put together and I did use wood glue to give the drawers extra support. The top is not a glossy finish so it could stain, I plan to get glass for the top though. I'm overall happy with the design, pretty good quality.
Before I get too far into this, let me mention that there are no extra parts. If you try to do this without reading the directions you might find yourself holding four extra screws. That is a bad thing since they provide a degree of stability to this desk. On to the review. On arrival I found a very well packaged desk. There was ample protection in the packaging, and as a result, the desk arrived in great shape. Unpacking it was an adventure, but I really did appreciate the care taken to make sure my desk arrived intact. If you follow the arrows on the outside of the box the first thing you will see when you open the box is the assembly directions. Read them. Assembly was simple, the fit and finish is remarkable, and this desk was exactly as described on Overstock.com. Ashley and Overstock.com did a great job. As a side note, I really appreciate the rounded edge on the front of the desk. I find it very comfortable during a marathon point and click mousing session.
