Pros: I've wanted the West Elm Parsons desk FOREVER & recently contemplated buying it but the shipping & special handling fee added nearly an extra $100 to the price. I read the reviews on this product & liked the similar/modern yet classic lines of this desk. It's very sturdy & well made. It has a sleek look & goes well with any decor. I'm especially happy with the way it looks with my mid-century/vintage decor in my home office/studio. I'd recommend this to a friend in a heartbeat. Cons: The only negative thing I'll say is that while there is limited stuff to put together (you just need to attach the legs to the top), it's INSANELY difficult, given the positioning of the holes & the fact that you need to use an L-wrench. I have a bit for my electric drill & had no luck using it because of the angle required. I have to say that the quality, great look of the desk & price make it well worth my cramped hands & scraped knuckles! Note: If you have arthritis and/or are elderly, this would probably be very frustrating to assemble.
