This is a very large desk. Its color is nice and close to what has been said about it on Overstock. The quality is only fair. It easily scratches though I been very careful with the surface of this desk (coasters and all). Perhaps, I got a worse quality than other buyers. The most annoying problem is the middle drawer. It does not close. The magnet is pathetic and it is not lined up properly. Even when I lined it up, it still does not hold this heavy latch. I have bought different magnets, but they do not fit and I am having a hard time finding a powerful enough magnet, which would be the right size. Some people may be able to overlook this problem; I am annoyed by it. Additionally, a number of holes were not drilled in the right places. The printed directions are less than ideal. I had to study them quite a bit and I have experience in putting furniture tg. without problems. I have done it for years. The desk would be stable enough it they had some additional clasp, or something like that, to suppor the connection of the legs and the desk's frame. The current support is inadequate. It keeps it tg. but it is not sturdy enough. Finally, putting the top of the desk was a challenge as it requires two people to line up properly. Perhaps if you are a strong build man with large arms you may be able to do it yourself. I needed help with this part. Putting the desk tg. took a very long time (several hours!!!). Using electric tools will certainly shorten the time. The bottom line is that I would not recommend it. There got to be better designed desks in this price range. I paid a little more than what the current price is.
