  • Handsome, not TOO hard to assemble
    Verified Purchase

    First off, the desk arrived VERY quickly. I honestly didn't expect it to get here for a few days. The UPS man was kind enough to bring it into my garage, which was very kind. The one box is 75 pounds, so be ready for that. Second, assembly was not trivial, but wasn't hard. DEFINITELY follow the directions, especially on the drawer sliders. I thought I was following the directions carefully, but still managed to install them upside-down at first. The box included ample extra screws, etc., which is quite nice. When finished, the desk is very sturdy! As for the desk itself, it's better than expected. It's wide and deep enough to be useful, but not so large as to take up the whole room. I selected this one to fit in a specific space. Magnets hold the keyboard drawer tightly closed. This means that the drawer is useful as a regular drawer, and since it's used as a laptop desk (no separate keyboard), that's VERY welcome. For my purposes, this desk is as close to perfect as I could hope for. Thank you, Overstock!

    Verified Purchase

    This is a superior product. The package arrived in perfect condition; the interior packaging held all wooden parts securely so nothing was scratch or damaged. Assembly requires two people since parts are very heavy, it is worth the effort since the desk is stunning. I have my laptop in the center drawer with a high def LCD panel on the top surface. I have connected the PC to the LCD thus I have a 26 inch monitor. The height of the desk allows easy viewing while I am relaxing in bed. If you need a desk this is the one for you.

  • Nice product. Be careful with assembly!
    Verified Purchase

    I'm using this as a vanity/desk in a guest room. It's sturdy and it looks good. Functions well for what I need. Assembling it took a couple of days with martini breaks! Be careful when assembling the middle section, because it DOES matter which of the two pieces serve as the divider on the left and right of the middle drawer. Because the middle (keyboard) drawer is different than the other two, the rails that are attached to the desk sit back further than the rails for the side drawers. Also, when installing those two dividers, be aware that there IS a front and back to each piece- it's not terribly clear in the picture, and easy to miss in the heat of assembly. In the end, it's a nice desk and spacious.

  • lovely, sturdy, good quality BUT
    Verified Purchase

    i mulled over the pics and descriptions for all desks at Overstock that would fit in my small home office, blend with a contemporary loveseat, and fit under the double window. i chose this one from about five that i printed out and showed to a friend in the furniture business. his advised ordering this one as it looked to be of the best composition, quality and style of the five. once the desk was assembled by this same friend who took the box to his home, assembled the desk, brought it back to me and set it up in my office, and it looked terrific! HOWEVER, after getting it situated we realized the drawer front to the keyboard tray would not stay closed completely when the tray was stored and the "drawer" closed. it is designed to flip up and down, stay put via magnets beside each hinge. the magnets are NOWHERE near strong enough to do the job, and they are embedded into the wood. we even purchased extra strong magnets to replace the existing ones, and they wouldn't hold either. therefore, i am very disappointed. i will live with the defect, unless overstock is willing to send me a new keyboard tray/drawer front that actually works properly, that's one of the pitfalls of ordering on-line furniture.... a lot of hassle to put it together, but no easy resolution to problems. i'm certainly not going to take it apart, repackage it, and send it back. besides this drawer problem, the piece is beautifully perfect.

  • Great but not with cheap cardboard back panel
    Verified Purchase

    Just to add to the previous comments, this desk is high quality and very sturdy, but: 1) one of the holes on one of the legs was drilled on the wrong side so it's useless and actually shows 2) I had to hammer the top panel in (it wasn't fitting perfectly after assembling everything else) and did split a corner of the panel in the process (be careful!) 3) more importantly I was very disappointed at the back panel, it's made of cheap soft cardboard material and I was expected hard wood like the other panels. That means you can only place the desk against a wall or it will look pretty ugly. That's too bad because the rest is nice.

  • Love it!
    Verified Purchase

    We love our Plateau Computer Desk! It looks just like the picture and seems to be very high quality. It does take a little while to assemble. I did it mostly myself while my husband was at work and my two toddlers were napping. One of the most confusing parts to me was the guides for the drawers. I ended up putting some of them one the wrong way and had to reposition some of them. Not too bad though. We received the desk very quickly and were happy to have it. The price seems very reasonable, especially for the quality of the desk. We are very happy with our purchase. Now we just need a chair that looks as nice to go with it.

  • Great for the Price
    Verified Purchase

    I shopped for several months to find a desk that fit my limited space requirements -- mainly for depth, and this fit the target. I have purchased "rubber wood" from Overstock in the past and knew of its color and quality and this met those expectations. It was not too dificult for my husband to assemble. My only complaint would be the magnetic dots used to hold the drop down drawer closed. They stopped working within 2 weeks. But, they are not truly needed as the drawer stays closed anyway. Also, I've always used a pull out tray, rather than a drop down drawer and I'm finding the hinges tend to get in my way when using the key board and mouse. This is a minor inconvenince, however. I have an "all in one" computer with a large screen; an organizer, miscelaneous stuff and still have room for my papers, etc. I did have my printer on the desk for awhile, and that did limit space somewhat, but still had room to work. It's difficult to find a long desk that isn't too deep, so this working great for me in my space. I gave it a four because of the magnetic dot thing and the drop down hinges, but these are minor and I recommend this desk.

  • Great Desk!
    Verified Purchase

    I love the desk. It seems to be an imitation of a desk sold by Room & Board and I'm much happier with this price! The computer drawer is nearly impossible to open without the drawer front falling forward. The drawer front cannot fall all the way forward without the drawer being pulled out. This just makes that drawer completely awkward to use. I would like to seal the drawer front to the drawer (rendering the hinges moot) but haven't figured out how I will do it yet. That being said, the quality is quite good, it looks great, it's still holding up quite well. I'm happy with it! I recommend it! Putting it together successfully was one of the greatest triumphs of my life. Use a drill for the screws and use it gingerly. Just tap the power on the drill otherwise you will split the wood with the screws if you go to far! Treat all the parts very carefully like you would a baby! Haha. Then you'll be fine!

  • A 5-Star Desk, but.....
    Verified Purchase

    We love this desk. It looks great in a small bedroom/home office. We would have given this 5-stars however there were a few minor details that the manufacturer could improve on (hopefully they pay attention to their customers comments/experiences). First the locking cams are low quality and bits of metal break off when tightening. Use a #3 Phillips to tighten as this might lessen the impact on the cams and keep them from breaking. Secondly, there are no pre-drilled holes in the drawer side panels for the screws that attach the glides. You may want to pre-drill small holes to avoid splitting the wood. We found out the hard way. Thirdly, the instructions, although not bad, they were a little off. Some of the pictures showed more wood dowels going into some of the panels than there were were holes. Lastly, after placing the top piece on it takes a contortionist to reach in the drawer cavities to tighten the locking cams. My suggestion is to take a good accounting of all your parts/pieces, lay them out and then assemble. Also, take your time and enjoy yourself. It took my wife and I about two hours to assemble.

  • Beautiful and sturdy
    Verified Purchase

    Desk is beautiful and very well designed. The 2 side drawers are large enough to hold a legal size inbox tray and desk organizer. The center drawer keyboard tray (I use it with a desktop) is convenient and works fine for me. The particle board back has cord holes predrilled and I actually use velcro to attach power strips and printer cords to the back. It did take quite awhile to assemble and the drawer slides were a bit tricky (installed a couple upside down), but no worse than any I've put together over the years. There were a couple of holes that were not pre-drilled, but wood screws were self drilling which went in easily with a cordless screwdriver. Well worth the price and effort as it looks like a high end piece of modern furniture that could have cost double or triple the price. Could easily be used as a dining room buffet or entry table.

  • thought it would be better
    Verified Purchase

    The other reviews were enthusiastic, so I ordered this desk, because I like the design. It took two days to put it together, so I knocked off one star for just being complicated to assemble. What really bothered me, though, is that the veneer on one drawer was already scratched when the desk arrived, and an entire sliver of the veneer on one of the legs just peeled off; in other words, the finish is not particularly durable. And one of the drawers sticks a little. On the whole, despite its sturdiness and nice design, it's just an average piece of furniture.

    Nice desk, but a nightmare to put together as it took over six hours with two adults, one who is in the furniture industry. Some parts, such as the back, are cheap. Two pieces were mismarked and the top of the desk had a deep scratch in it when sent to me.

  • Nice, but keyboard drawer doesn't work properly
    Verified Purchase

    The desk is nice and is a substantial piece of furniture. The wood pieces are sturdy and it was relatively easy to put together. I've had for a couple years now and it has stood up to light use. The only complaint I have is that the keyboard drawer, which is supposed to be held closed by magnets doesn't work properly. The magnets aren't strong enough to keep it shut so it is always hanging loose. I haven't figured out a way to fix that. For this reason I gave it 3 stars, but it's a decent desk.

  • More Table Than Desk
    Verified Purchase

    Overall, it's a nice piece of furniture. Like other reviews mentioned, it is a two-person job to assemble; however, the directions are easy to follow and not frustrating. It just takes time. I would recommend this product. It's a nice complement to our den.

    This desk is great. Solid wood. Sturdy. Minimalist. Try not to let things pile up on it since there are few drawers to hide your stuff. ;)

    This is a great desk. My brother put it together for me. For him, it was a breeze. The desk doesn't get a lot of use because it's in my guest room, but it sure is good looking. I'm about to move it to my office and start using it instead of the big executive desk I currently have. I can't wait. It's a good looking piece.

    As you can see in the promo photo this can be used as an entrance table or end table behind a sofa. I have been using mine as a desk for over 2 years now. I put it together on my own. This was a little frustrating because the drawers and slide out front panel for laptop or keyboard have to be perfectly aligned in order to close and open smoothly. It is an expensive looking solid wood (I think) unit and after 2+ years of constant service has no scratches, dents or scuffs. Glad I went for this rather than more traditional looking desk

  • nice looking desk
    Verified Purchase

    This is in my living room with a lamp and desk top computer. I was pleased because it has two drawers and the center drawer with drop front for a keyboard. There is no hardware on the drawers, which would be fine, except the center drawer is very difficult to open. When I can get it open the magnet no longer works well, so that is frustrating. As a result I just do not use the center drawer at all and the keyboard sits on the top of the desk. Not what I had wanted, but it works.

    Cheap desk. Cracked down the middle during our first move. Drawers don't stay shut. You get what you pay for.
