I really like the desk. It's beautiful. We had to uncrate the desk before bringing it into the house. We had to turn the heavy desk a certain way to get in through the garage and office doors. Assembling took us about an hour and I had to have my husband do it because I could need see against the dark wood. While I had difficulty reading the assembly instructions, my husband did not. I held the flashlight as he put on the legs and assembled the two parts together. I very much like my purchase and it's quality. I would buy it all over again.
I now have purchased 12 Bestar Prestige L shaped desk units and have been very happy with the price and finish. The previous purchase of 8 desks 6 years ago are still in use and standing up to use and some abuse. I would defintely buy them again as they are a very good value.
I could not be happier with the quality and beauty of this desk. It was easy to assemble (two people needed), and the finished product screams "I am a piece of high quality furniture". I also purchased the hutch with glass doors, which mated to the desk perfectly, the suspended pedestal filing drawers which were very easy to attach using the pre-drilled holes, and the corner bookcase which finished off the office corner that I was designing. This furniture is used in my great room and created a well organized space that adds to the functionality of the entire room. A great space the whole family can use for study, work, and staying organized.
Desk came in 4 boxes. It survived a 5 foot drop off of the delivery truck. VERY VERY BAD INSTRUCTIONS!!! I managed to get the L-shaped part together after MANY HOURS! The fining cabinet part was impossible to put together. I din't even attempt the little sliding shelf thing. The wood parts fit together well, but there were problems with several metal parts. (Drawer sliders) The color and finish are nice. I recommend that whomever buys this desk, just put together the L-shaped part and forget the rest!
