This is an really nice desk. It is super solid, and looks very nice. The finish looks like it will hold up for a long time. It is heavy, you will need a friend to help you move the box and put it together. Weighing in at ~150lbs it is impressive that you can get this delivered for $3.00.
The item was damaged in shipping. The drawers did not fit properly on the front and my husband modified it so that they could close properly without hitting each other. I was expecting something other than particle board with a veneer. On the positive side, it is finished all the way around so that you don't have to place it in a corner. Expect a full day to build the desk. There are MANY pieces to the desk. I will refrain from further comment.
I wanted a solid, dark wood-looking desk and this one is perfect. I use this desk at home and it fits my needs perfectly. I have plans later on to finish my office setup and plan to purchase the credenza that goes with the desk to make the L shape out of my desk. Assembling was easy. It didn't take me too long and I could assemble it by myself. As for quality ... it is very durable. After a year of use and in a home with 4 kids and a dog, the desk has no nicks or scratches ... this is due to the laminate and solid quality of the materials.
The material that the drawers are made of is pressed sawdust and it wont hold a screw. Some split out and some strip out if you are not careful as you tighten the screws. The finish is easily scratched. Some parts were missing.
