Very Disappointed from Highland Park, IL on 09/08/2013 – Verified Buyer
The good news. This is an inexpensive desk. Now for the bad news:

It comes in a single carton that weighs like a million pounds. The Fedex driver left it on my doorstep and I had to angle walk it in the house. The only way I could actually get it in the upstairs bedroom where it was to go I had to rip open the box (no way to open it so it could be repacked) and take it up piece by piece.

When I took out the top I could see that it was broken. In other words the particle board was cracked and the only think holding it together was the veneer. This is when it became obvious that the entire desk is skinned particle board. OK, what did I expect for $178

Then, there are a huge number of pieces. This is like an IKEA nightmare. But, even though I had set aside the afternoon to put it together I couldn't because the darned top was broken.

By the time I get the replacement piece, spend the several hours it will take to put it together and then have a piece of particle board furniture that can't possibly age well I would have done much better to spend another couple of hundred bucks for a real desk and had it delivered and placed right where I wanted it.

A new desk for hubby! from Waltham, MA on 10/14/2014 – Verified Buyer
I ordered this desk on a Tuesday and received it in the mail Thursday! Love the fast delivery. The desk is everything I thought it would be. My brother helped me put it together and it took him about an hour and a half. I wanted to surprise my husband and set up the office for him as an anniversary present. He LOVES the desk, it's the perfect fit for that room. The only reason why I did not give this review 5 stars is because there was a couple of little chips on the top shelf part of the desk in the corner. I was able to hide it with a small clock so it's not visible. But other that than, I am very happy with this purchase and would definitely recommend this desk!

Great desk! from Houston, TX on 05/28/2015 – Verified Buyer
Such a great decision to buy this desk! We were looking for a smaller more compact desk to fit in a smaller area and this was perfect! Looks so sleek! We love that you can place your laptop hidden under the shelf to give you more desk space. It takes some time to assemble but we love it! If you are looking for a compact yet professional desk, this is it!

Great Desk from Ledyard, CT on 11/29/2014 – Verified Buyer
I ordered this because it fit my needs and it was manufactured by one the best companies that do this type furniture. It is time consuming to build, but is worth it in the end results. This is a heavy but sturdy desk and made to last.

Pros: Great workmanship, nice looking and, functional
Cons: Needs to be packaged in two boxes

Nice office desk. from Galveston, TX on 02/10/2015 – Verified Buyer
This desk is the perfect fit for our room. My wife and I are in our 60s. A younger couple could most likely assemble it quicker than we did. It took us just under 3 hours. But, the instructions were quite easy to follow. We definitely would recommend this item for anyone that needs an inexpensive desk, functional and sturdy. Thanks.

Great, but have worries from Meyersdale, PA on 11/08/2015 – Verified Buyer
The desk is awesome! It was fairly easy to put together, it looks great and is sturdy as can be! We are a little worried that it will scratch easy as it got scratched a bit through the process of putting it together, but it's a great product and it looks great in our space.

from Independence, KY on 01/30/2016 – Verified Buyer
I purchased this for my Grandson, Noah, and he is so impressed with the how great it looks in his room. As a Grandmother, I have found it to be very functional and meets his needs for High School and on to college. His mother, Kim Leicht, recommended your company as a "Go To" place to meet my grandson's needs.
Thanks for being prompt on your promise of delivery.

With Regards...........................Annette Ulm

Good product for the price! from Hamilton, VA on 11/08/2015 – Verified Buyer
Nice desk that fits my apartment perfectly. Was pretty easy to assemble, feels sturdy, and is good looking. I initially didn't receive two parts in the box that I needed, but I got them quickly after a very simple phone call. I took a star off because it is darker in person than it looked online, but still a good piece.

very nice from Lebanon, OH on 09/06/2014 – Verified Buyer
My husband needed a new desk for his office. I started shopping and found this one. I like it because it actually has a drawer instead of just a pull out for a keyboard. It has quite a bit of storage space as well. Overall a very good piece of furniture for a very reasonable price. Easy assembly instructions too.
