Good quality and packaging. The the boxes are very heavy and will get roughly handled in shipping but the furniture was undamaged, MANY parts. Took about 3-4 hours to assemble with decent visual instructions. Look at the diagrams and part numbers carefully and dont mix them up. Make sure you have a RATCHET screwdriver or a very strong wrist. I dont recommend a drill unless you are very careful or you may strip some wood screw holes. Couple of places where you absolutely need 2 people to put together. Looks great and very sturdy when finished.
This desk has so much storage and usable space. I love sitting at the desk and working all day, it's very comfortable. The quality is great and it did not have one scratch on it when I put it together. That was another great thing, the assembly was simple and the instructions were perfect. There was even an 800 # to call for help but I did it all on my own. I am so pleased with this item and Overstock delivered a great price.
I was looking for a good, sturdy desk for my office at a small non-profit, but I didn't want a big corporate-looking solid mass. The look of this desk is exactly what I was looking for, and it has proven to be pretty hardy so far. The instructions weren't amazing but I figured it out. It took me about 2.5 hrs to do alone, probably would be quicker with a friend. Would recommend!
Reluctant to but furniture online I ordered this desk on sale to replace an aged desk. When the desk arrived the "white glove" delivery folks did the very minimal assembly and hauled off the shipping materials. The desk is beautiful. It has a rich cherry finish. The drawers are lined well and most important they are on quality rails. It is clearly well made and while maybe not an heirloom furniture piece it was well worth the money. I had no issues with shipping. The whole transaction was smooth from order date to delivery.
I looked at a multitude of desks in stores and online. I wanted something that was functional, more traditional but looked rather elegant and a reasonable price. This one fit the bill. It took longer to assemble than I thought and does take two people at times to hold in place while screwing or to lift. I am still having a bit of problems with the doors to get them to close properly. It has lots of storage and looks great.
The instructions were easy to follow. Desk looks really nice. Did it myself and it took a couple of hours. I really don't like the allen wrench tools and the hardware that can only be used with the allen wrench. It's short and the holes are snug so it really wears on your fingers until they're raw. I think they need to go to a more common phillips head or regular flathead screw. This will allow for drills to be used which would increase this rating to a 5th star.
Was looking for a desk that doesn't overpower a room, as our 'office' is a converted/small bedroom. The depth in particular is all you need in the age of computer flat screens and keyboard trays.
One major gripe though is the packaging. All 138 pounds of this product came in a single box that made it difficult to handle. Guessing that's also why the box was so heavily damaged. I had three damaged pieces, though was able to hide the damage so didn't order replacement parts.
Instructions are typical "visual only", lacking any helpful guidelines. Still, was typical cam locks, dowels, small screws and nails so if you've assembled furniture previously you'll not have any problem.
Seems very stable and durable. Pretty simply to put together, only took like 3 hours with breaks. If you have trouble understanding the instructions, you can find the product on * and there's an instructional video of someone putting it together, which was helpful. It's seriously the perfect size--I can have my laptop pushed toward the back with plenty of space for textbooks and notebooks in front of it. I love this desk!
Very good value. I purchased this along with an Executive desk for complete set and am very satisfied. Has great look and good quality. Had an issue with shipping damage but Overstock.com stepped up right away and took care of everything.
Bush packaging protected everything, no hassle over damaged pieces. Hubby and I spent a couple of hours putting it together, excellent instructions and zero problems Talk about dollar value, this is extremely well made and an excellent bargain
Once I figured out how to sync it the controller works perfectly. I LOVE the charge kit part, it's brilliant. Recharging can happen anywhere which is convenient. The sync for the controller was confusing to me. I thought the controller was broken, it wasn't. It just kept slow blinking. I finally figured out that I had to tell the XBOX and the controller to be in search mode or something to sync up with each other. There's a button I couldn't see on the side of the xbox you have to push and a button on the controller you push for them to find each other. Once you do that a few times it figures it all out and everything is gold. Apparently I didn't quite find the pictograms instructional enough and I hit the web to find the proper answer. Once I figured it out the controller and the charger are solid and I love it.
The mahogony work station is very sturdy and looks nice in my home office. The whole set is big (measures approximately 103'' X 71''). The setup was easy though the parts were heavy. (I am a 5'1'' tall woman. I did most assembly and my boyfriend helped with carrying things around). One merit of the workstation is its flexibility. You can put it together based on your own need: the bridge can go the opposite side and the cabinet can be put anywhere beneath. It's a real steal. One of the best deals from overstock.com!
I was pleasantly surprised with the very nice quality of this furniture for such a low price point. This furniture looks very professional and really classes up our small office. It was surprisingly easy to put together and it looks magnificent. I highly recommend this for a home office or small business.
Got mine today, easy assembly. 66 in. X 56 in (the "L" Shape) X 29.5 in (Height) are the "real" useful dimensions. Fits well with my little study (108 sq ft, square shaped). If you have a desktop, the caddy can hold your CPU. However, as a laptop user, I would prefer a matching cabin with two or three drawers instead of the caddy.
This product is exactly what I was looking for in a standing desk! Easy to assemble by myself in well under 30 minutes, including adjusting and leveling the height of the top desk surface. The dimensions on the website are very accurate. I have dual monitors and based on 29.5" width only had about half an inch of wiggle room to fit them both. Once I set them up...exactly half an inch to spare. The metal frame seems very solidly built and on wide feet so no noticeable wobble so far. I'm not worried about having those two monitors sitting so high off the ground thanks to the sturdiness of the unit.
Aesthetically great as well! The cherry is a good shade, and the edges are well finished with an almost pin-striped look to them. A very high-quality and professional looking desk for the price. I would be happy to pay retail on this one, but Overstock drops it down to less-than-IKEA prices and this desk looks better and will out-perform anything that you could find in that particular store.
The only downside is that the bottom two shelves are held on with an adhesive tape instead of screws. BIG design flaw in my mind, and the reason for 4 instead of 5 stars. Fortunately I don't actually need to put anything of value on either of those shelves, but I wouldn't trust it with a computer or heavy printer. The adhesive seems extremely strong, but will inevitably decrease in holding power with time. I also know myself, and will at some point forget and try to lift the desk by one of those shelves. Hopefully the adhesive holds so I don't shatter one of the casters, or my floor, or my foot!
PROS: Nearly everything--value, professional/quality look, sturdy metal construction
CONS: Adhesive shelves, keyboard tray is a bit stiff.
The desk is great, we really love it. It's made of high quality material and looks great. It's big though, so make sure you have a good size room to put it in. By buying the desk off overstock.com, we saved some where between $400 and $600. Not a bad deal.
This desk works just right for my application. It was easy to assemble and came with all the parts and tools needed for assembly - including spare fasteners! One of the attachment points where the glass top is glued to the fastener nut dishplated into the glass when I was attaching the top to the frame. Could have been damaged in shipment and I didn't notice it, or I could have damaged it myself during assembly. In any case, this is a weak point in the design. Also, the keyboard tray is too narrow for a full keyboard to sit on and still have room for the mouse - not a huge issue either, but could be a problem for some. I consider these minor, and would have rated this unit at 5 stars otherwise.
