The box was a bit beat up when we received it. There were a few boards that had dented corners...luckily when we were putting it together, those corners ended up on the back of the desk and are not visible. The instructions are long and there are several steps. Based on other reviews, they were right. Holes needed to be drilled and it was a bit of a pain to put together. All in all, it's a very nice desk and we are happy with our purchase.
This desk was shipped so well packed, it could have been dropped from a house and survived undamaged! I was very impressed with the packaging and even more pleased when I opened up the box and saw the finish and quality of this desk for the price!! I was blown away!! It was simple to assemble and went together quickly. I have some experience with assembling furniture and this desk was very simple compared to a lot of other products I have put together. It goes very well with my decor and I was able to get rid of an old commercial grey desk that I have been using for many years. It is perfect for my laptop and can easily accommodate a standard PC. It is very heavy duty and the finish is awesome. I haven't used it for very long, but I was pleasantly surprised when I dropped a screw driver onto the desk top during assembly and it did not even leave a mark, so the surface is very resistant to scratching. My wife was ecstatic to be rid of an old eyesore and adding this into our home. Very appealing to the eyes, quality high use furniture, with excellent functionality for our business!!
Desk arrived in a short amount of time. This is made of high quality composite wood (if that makes any sense) Melamine is the type they use. Only thing I was disappointed with was the top drawer. The back part of the drawer wasn't cut deep enough for the bottom of the drawer causing the 4 sides to not completely connect. The top drawer sliding mechanism isn't the best of quality. The bottom drawer is excellent and very sturdy. The only other complaint I have is the bottom side of the top panel has a scratch about a 12" long. I wasn't willing to contact the company cause it wasn't a big deal but I will be contacting them about the drawer. The directions are pretty clear however with two people it took around an hour to put together.
Product arrived quickly and in perfect condition. Assembly prob took me about 15-30 minutes didnt really time it but it went pretty fast. I used a drill for this even though the instruction just said to use a screw driver. Only thing i would caution on this product is that the wheels that came with it doesnt seem to roll very good but desk/cart is very light so its not a big deal. Other than that i am very please with the purchase and quite happy with the product for what i intend to use it.
Obviously at the price, it is just what you think. A basic little desk of okay materials. Probably wouldn't stand up the abuse of a young kid or teenager, but good enough for a desk that isn't taking constant use and abuse.
