Modern look and durable
Jennifer from Dover, NH – Verified Buyer
I bought this desk for my teenage son. It is durable, modern to go along with his gaming area and looks great. Pros: Easy to assemble Cons: Longer than average shipping

The desk comes with lost of pieces, be prepared to spend a few hours putting the desk together. Directions were easy to follow, but it takes a while. Desk is very sleek looking. The color was exactly how they explained it (chocolate brown) and is very sturdy. The silver pieces on the side legs are not metal like the drawer handles, they are plastic. I thought they would would be metal and look nicer. [...] Desk is very heavy. If I didn't have my boyfriend to help me I would not have been able to lift it. Make sure you are strong or have a strong helper to even get the box into your house. Overall, a good sturdy desk that is definitely worth the price. Free shipping is an added bonus for an over 100lb package!
smudges easily, but sturdy

Laminate surfaces smudge easily, requiring constant polishing to maintain visual appeal. The desk seems sturdy, and doesn't wiggle. Laminate corners and edges look cheap, and will probably require glue in a year or two. Silver dowels on legs are made of silver-painted wood, not metal. Drawer handles are made of metal.
Element 48 W Computer Desk

Beautiful table but hard to assembly. Assembly instruction must be greater precise and detailed.
good desk, HORRIBLE packaging/assembly
Alex from Houston, TX – Verified Buyer
I love the look of the desk, and the drawers on the side were the main selling point for me. I like that they can be installed on either side. The desk is very heavy (100+lbs), which is great for durability (I use it every day) and horrible for having to move it. I live on the second floor and had to open the box downstairs and carry pieces up in about 5 trips. The other thing that instantly annoyed me was the packaging. The Styrofoam basically disintegrated inside the box, leaving little statically charged balls of Styrofoam all over EVERYTHING. I'm still finding pieces around my apartment 2 months later. The assembly took a couple hours; some parts of the directions were great and others weren't very clear. At least there were no missing parts. So, it's a good desk, but make sure you know how heavy it is and have some time set aside for assembly. It'd be great if they could fix the packaging issue, too.
South Shore Computer Desk
Anonymous from CA – Verified Buyer
The South Shore Element Computer desk is nice. It was a little difficult to assemble and the instructions were a little vague. The quality good for the price point.
Robert E. from Cincinnati, OH – Verified Buyer
This desk arrived quickly and undamaged. It is much heavier than I expected for the money. The instructions were clear and assembly was easy (with a helper I wouldn't recommend trying to do it yourself). I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a solid general purpose affordable desk.
Sturdy and functional
Angela from Calgary, AB – Verified Buyer
I bought this desk for my teenaged son's bedroom. It is very sturdy and looks true to the picture. Great value!
I like it but the drawer spacing is off.
ds from Santa Fe
[...] It looks nice except for the gap between the drawer and file drawer on one side.It is uneven. Because the file is only attached bya couple of screws I am concerned about putting toomuch in it.The drawers slide smoothly and the color matches withthe wood around it. For the price and the fact thatthe company is environmentally aware, it is a goodproduct.
