I have never written a review for a product before, but I wanted to counter several things I saw in negative reviews that almost kept me from buying the desk: 1) The quality is top notch for the price (under $***) and for being of Chinese origin. Seriously, who expects a fine piece of heirloom quality craftsmanship for this price?? 2) The packaging was actually very surprising in a good way. I saw several reviews commenting on damage and when I got my desks (we ordered two) there were several decent sized holes in the boxes no bigger that a golf ball and i was a little worried. However, when I opened the boxes, the amount of Styrofoam and and the way the desk was packed meant there was at least a 2 inch gap between the box and the desk. I think any damage to the desk that others have experienced is not the fault of the seller. 3) if you are mildly handy and have access to a metric socket set and a powered screw gun or power screw driver, you can put this desk together no problem. The complaints about being hard to put together are laughable. Seriously laughable. If try to put this together with the little wrench that comes with the desk, then you deserve to be frustrated and need to ask your brother-in-law for help or pay someone to put it together.
I wish I could post photos! Because I would. This desk is more gorgeous in person than the photo with the outdated TV haha. I can comfortably fit two monitors on the desk for my gaming and music needs. It's heavy and solid wood. The only veneer is the paneling on the inside of the hutch. I love that the bottom drawer locks and comes with keys, it also has metal brackets to hold files. The top drawer is lined with felt. The hutch doors slide to open and does not have brown on the top like the photo. it is solid white up there. There is room between the bottom of the hutch and desk for cables to go through. I think the only thing I don't like about the desk is that piece of wood that helps hold the desk together where you sit. it has the ugliest orange mark on it that does not come off. I thought about contacting customer service about it but it took so long to get the desk that I let it go. I picked this desk over the others for one reason, quality. Anyone who has owned partical board furniture and gets frustrated will definitely see a huge difference. This is something that outlives you, and it survived it's first move no problem. I got a good laugh out of the first review where they dropped it and it did fine. Heck that's what pushed me over to buy it. It's a good desk. Gorgeous and practical.
I have a small office and the size fit great. The only complaint I have is the depth of the drawers. You cannot fit more than a slim notebbook, pens, and shallow items, so keep that in mind. I purchased a clear vinyl pad to cover the top where I write sometimes with pen to keep off marks. It may not be the best white desk, but fits my purpose for a smaller size but adequate desk, style and price.
