Rated 5 out of 5�by Lunaera Great desk
Love this desk. It offers lots of storage yet it doesn't take much space.

Assembly does take time but instructions are simple. For my needs the desk has enough space and draws. It would be nice if it was wider and holes to allow cables from pic, monitor or other electriconic device to run underneath desk! Cables must run on top and they can be unsightly!

Rated 4 out of 5�by alkarte Desk and Hutch Install/ Delivery Experience
I put together the desk/hutch. It took me two evenings to put together with a screw driver and provided equipment (6-8 hours). I can see why the recommend not using a drill. The directions were easy to follow. I did mess up however on the glass shelf and it sticks out somewhat and doesn't hold up right. I would pay attention to the directions on that piece.
The delivery service was good. They were going to be late, so I let them in remotely, and they left the boxes at the apartment door w/o issue. It is a 3rd party delivery service as they did not have the items in stock when I went to the store, free shipping, and I am glad I did not have to haul this thing into my truck, and up 3 floors.
The box with the desk is very heavy, definitely have someone around to help you bring it in to an open area. Disassemble in an open area if you are putting the pieces together in a different and/or smaller room to save space only for the items needed. If you have a bench or something, lay something soft down and work on it or the floor if you have nothing else to save your back. You may be sore in the morning.
After the install, I am happy with it and I am sure the glass shelf not clicking right is something I did as the other one is working well. The hinges have adjustments that I will play around with later on.
Have someone help you move the desk, have a couple of bins ready for the plastic/foam and don't destroy the cardboard casing as you can put it back together and haul it as is to the recycling. You will notice you will have a couple bags full of Styrofoam, and some leftover Styrofoam seeds you will need to vacuum up. If you are doing this in an apartment, just clean later or the next night. Take a bag out when you go in/out of your place because you will have a lot of stairs to climb, be efficient.
One note, if you are putting this together on carpet, be advised that it is very difficult to move with the hutch on., be careful not to strain the corner leg!! it seems a bit shaky. If you have a furniture slider you can place under it, you will be able to maneuver it closer to the wall once you are done and you don't need someone to help you most likely.
Hope the review helps you save some time. I am happy with the purchase. Out of the box, don't be surprised if there are little scuffs here and there. Mine had many blemishes but were very small, you will definitely be wiping this thing down afterwards as there is so much dust/dirt. Happy assembly!

The product would have been better if the tracks on the drawers wasn't screwed on backwards making it hard to put the drawers on.
