If you receive one that has all the correct pieces the desk is probably pretty good, but regardless it will take at least a couple hours to build. Still love the desk, just disappointed I didn't get all the correct pieces.
I bought 3 of these over the years. My youngest son's original desk had all the ballbearings on the sliding keyboard tray fall out very early on, which made for sliding the tray very difficult. He also ripped part of the black laminate off the bottom shelf from constant wear and tear of his sneakers and moving the computer tower a lot. Basically, it looked as if my son ate his desk, but his desk still looked better than his computer chair did. We never had any problems with the desk's stability. Other than the tray, the rest of the desk held up just fine and it didn't wobble or slide around on the uncarpeted floor. Oldest son's desk never had any problem in 3+ years he has it in use (still in use today). It must have been an isolated issue, because the replacement desk I bought has been perfect so far and his desk habits have not changed at all. Perfect size, great price and really not bad quality. It's very easy to set up. I would buy this desk again if needed.
Nothing to do with the desk, but my first one was damaged by Fedex. They tossed my box on my porch, shattering the glass top, and took off! However, I was sent a replacement at no charge to me and was able to successfully put the desk together. It was fairly simple to assemble. Only issue I have is with the locks on the cabinet. You have to wiggle it around to get it to line up to lock.... other than that....I like my desk.
