Rated 4 out of 5�by Jen Great desk but damages easily
I bought this desk for my home office and it looks beautiful. It wasn't difficult to put together which was wonderful since I didn't have any help. My only complaint is that the surface scuffs/scratches very easily, however, half of the desk surface is a leather-like material so it's protected pretty well. Other than that, I absolutely love this desk. Considering I purchased it on sale, I'm really happy!

Rated 5 out of 5�by shesaved4Jesus Great Product
This desk is great! It was very heavy and the package was big, but that was a good thing because the product is very well constructed, and very sturdy and durable. The desk had step-by-step hardware. I have never had a piece of furniture have that pro before. Literally each step in the instructions page by page had a package with all of the hardware for that step! It will look overwhelming because there are many pieces, but once you start it is VERY easy to assemble and it is a beautiful desk and very well made! Enjoy! I recommend buying it and I would definitely purchase another piece of furniture from office depot!

Rated 2 out of 5�by Dooser Nice but with reservations
This is the kind of piece that you really want to be everything it appears to be, but it's not. The design, initial appearance are great but the faults show through quickly with normal use. My biggest complaint is the finish quality. Paper thin veneer on particle board chips and peels easily. I've actually had it peel off when i accidentally put a piece of scotch tape on it. Sliding things across the surface, putting things down, all these will cause the finish to mar and wear. My only recourse was to keep a magic marker on hand and regularly blot the marks to keep from becoming unsightly. If you want a piece that you don't use and it just needs to look good this is it... if you want something to hold up to normal wear, you're better off saving some money and heartache and buy a better quality material product.

Rated 5 out of 5�by DaveP Great desk overall
I purchased this desk a few weeks ago. I have to say, it's one of the best put-it-together-yourself desks I've ever bought. Obviously I can't speak to it's durability over time, but I like what I see. About the only the I wish was that the corner supports were thicker and better secured (only two screws on each).
But the little things done here are impressive. It's been about 8 years since I had to put together a desk, but this was a great experience. Everything is well labeled. And the truly impressive thing is that each steps hardware comes in a separate, labeled pouch so you don't have to sift through the pile of screens and bolts to find what you need. You just open the pouch for the current step and use it.
I bought this on sale with the hutch for just over $200 and for the money you can't beat it. The drawers fit great and open/close easily. The doors on the hutch are designed impressively so they don't fall on you when they're open. The finish is good. It is a manufactured wood desk so I imagine leaving glasses of ice water on it will likely leave a mark. But it seems solidly built and should last as long as you don't beat on it.
With where it is in my home, I had to make few extra cuts out of the back for wiring but that's not a mark against this desk. You'll easily fit a monitor, keyboard, mouse and printer without the hutch. With the hutch space gets a little tighter on the surface if you want a printer. I just set the printer in an opening and will pull it out when I need to use it (which isn't often). But I got all my stuff on it with still room to put my feet up when I want to.
