This desk arrived a day earlier than expected. It was extremely simple to put together with clear instructions. All the holes were drilled in the proper spots and it seems quite sturdy. The drawer front does not fit flush to the decorative side panels. I was not expecting that and it isn't clear in the picture. Also, the drawer was very challenging to get on track and does not sit perfectly in the track. For my purposes, this isn't an issue since I do not have a keyboard but if I were to use the drawer frequently it might be bothersome. The top of the hutch arrived with a few black marks but they'll be covered with stuff on the desktop anyhow, so I am not concerned about them. Overall, for the price, this piece meets my expectations and looks very nice in my space. I hope that it is a long lasting desk.
