I was uncertain if this desk was going to live up to my expectations, there were several mixed reviews so I was unsure what he end result would be. I found that the instructions were perfect, and yes it took 2 hours to build but there was a lot to this desk. Once together I could not be more pleased with it. This desk is for my daughter and I am sure it will stand up to her abuse. When I took inventory of all the items before assembling the draw side was damaged, I simply went on line (per the instructions) and ordered a replacement and within 2 days it arrived. I am very happy with this product.
