I love the desk and it fit absolutely perfectly in my corner and holds everything I need. Word of advice - use two people to assemble. There are like 80 pieces and it takes sometime to figure out the manual! Also, there are TWO MANUALS for a reason!! One is to assemble a right hand desk and the other the left hand!!! A friend of mine figured that two were included by mistake and we had to redo some parts of assembly several times. So with some work you will end up with a very nice desk!
This workstation is very good for home office, but be careful. This is really heavy (all parts are not hollow core, but real wood) and requires several screw joints, which means you may not be able to get this out of your room when necessary (I noticed this after assembled...). You can put the shelf in either side, and two instruction manuals are included for left and right, so you won't be confused. Assembling takes time, and I'd highly recommend do it by two adults.
The desk is fine, a solid, sturdy and very heavy piece of furniture. Assembly was reasonably easy, as long as you have two people. Shipping, however was a nightmare. The shipper returned the first one because it was too damaged to deliver. The second one looked fine on the outside, but the pieces were packed loosely inside with a few scraps of crumbling styrofoam. Three pieces, including the top, were damaged, with crushed corners and scratches. I called the company; they were very pleasant and efficiently shipped me the correct replacement pieces. The local shipping company made four appointments to deliver it and blew them all off without notifying me. I finally got them to deliver the parts, and everything went smoothly from there. Obviously shipping problems are not directly in overstock.com's control: this is more of a warning that there can be issues with shipping very heavy, awkward pieces; not every supplier packs properly; and shippers may have difficulty actually getting it to you. Altogether it was about three weeks from time of order to final parts delivery.
