I was immediately disappointed upon opening the box because the legs were a dull silver instead of black. The picture on the website shows them as black, although upon rereading the listing I realized the color of the legs wasn't specifically mentioned, only the color of the surface of the desk. The espresso and the dull silver don't match very well. The individual pieces were sturdy enough and the desk was easy to put together. Unfortunately the pieces didn't fit snugly together. This was most noticeable in the corner piece of the desk surface: there is a gap on either side of about half an inch. Nothing I did could make it fit neatly: either the pieces were the wrong size or the angles of the supporting hardware were wrong. I ultimately decided that the problems weren't sufficient reason to go the through the hassle of and time required in returning the desk. After my computer was put in place, the desk looked clean and streamlined and it serves my purposes. However, the experience was a disappointment overall and I will be hesitant to purchase from overstock.com again.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The individual pieces were of acceptable quality but they didn't fit together well.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The worded description matched the actual product. The photo of the product did not match.
