Rated 1 out of 5?by Sandi Part Did Not Fit
My husband put together this desk and when it came time to put the drawer in, it did not fit. The drawer did not fit. He had to modify it before he could get the drawer to fit, and still it sticks. This was very inconvenient to both of us as neither one of us had the extra time to spend modifying a piece that should have fit when shipped. Therefore, I cannot recommend this item.

Rated 4 out of 5?by Michael Nice desk, fairly easy to put together
The price of the desk; it was on sale and I had a $10 off coupon and free shipping made this something I couldn't pass up. I was looking for a small desk for my wife to draw and write letters (yes people still do that) in our recently vacated son's bedroom. This was small enough that it didn't take up a bunch of space, but big enough that she has plenty of room to do what she wants. The top is nice and solid and gives the appearance of a more expensive desk. The big pullout drawer is very useful.
Putting the desk together was fairly easy. There were a couple of pages which I thought I followed the directions exactly, but found out I put an item on upside down or backwards. However it was easy enough to correct those mistakes.
The desk is solid and she appreciates having it.

Rated 3 out of 5?by Dave Sauder Writing Desk Adequate
My wife wanted me to get rid of the large corner desk in my office and this seemed like a reasonable, space saving option. After I ordered the desk, I contacted the delivery company to ask that they give me a morning or afternoon delivery time or that the driver not leave the desk if no one was home. They were not able to accommodate me. When the desk did arrive late afternoon, the box was pretty beat up, open, and all the packaging Styrofoam was broken into many pieces. The driver wouldn't wait while I examined the contents, assuring me if there was product damage Office Depot would replace the desk. It took me less than two hours to assemble the desk. The directions were clear. I was careful during assembly but still had an instance where the veneer broke away from the pressboard. This happened on the back side, so no big deal. Concerning the desk top, the front edge where my forearms rest while typing on a keyboard is very rough, causing irritation. I resolved this by taking a fine grade sandpaper and sanding the edge down. It doesn't look great, but it did solve the problem. Finally, the fit of the drawer is poor and it doesn't slide smoothly. I took it apart and readjusted everything with no improvement. The desk is as described, but be prepared for a small work surface. Overall, the desk is functional but nothing to get excited about.

Rated 5 out of 5?by Cik0007 Looks great
This desk took me about 2 hours to put together and looks great in my guest bedroom. It is small but functional and I like the dark elegant look to it. I am happy with the purchase and price I paid for it.
