Rated 5 out of 5�by ToxProf Good choice for a desk--I'm glad I bought it
I wanted a desk that was of a usable size but not too large to use in an apartment. I also wanted a letter-size file drawer and an additional drawer, and I wanted to avoid engineered "wood" if possible. This desk exactly fit my criteria, and my wife says it looks good, which is also a definite positive. The drawers both pull out to full extension, allowing access to the entire drawer, another plus, and the ball bearing tracks for the drawer allow smooth operation. Those features are often missing in less expensive desks and file cabinets.
The only negative about this desk is the minimalist instructions for assembly. The parts were all labeled with letters corresponding to what was shown on the instruction diagrams, there were no missing or damaged parts, and there was even a small bag with an extra of each screw and bolt, just in case one might be needed. However, there were two problems. One is that it was sometimes difficult to determine how each piece was to be oriented to assemble the file drawer compartment. I had to carefully scrutinize the drawings to look for clues, such as a small dot meant to show the location of a specific hole that was only on one side of a piece. More annoying was attaching the glass desk top. It uses four long bolts that have to screw into holes in fittings attached to the glass. The problem is that the bolts have to be put through metal tubes that do not guide the bolt's placement at all, and there is no way to see where they are going. So you have to wiggle the bolts around interminably until you luck out and manage to get the end of each bolt into the proper hole into which it screws. That got really annoying before it was done.
One more thing is that you should keep it in mind that the small screws are "self-tapping" screws. They require a considerable amount of force to get them started, and once they are started, they will turn very freely for a while. That does not mean that they are stripped, as if you keep turning them they should eventually begin to tighten. Just don't over tighten them, because that actually will cause them to strip.

I am working with limited space and was concerned with purchasing a big and bulky desk, however did not want a particle board desk that would require replacement within 6 months of purchasing.
So this steal sturdy and space saving desk was an Excellent purchase when seeking long lasting and space saving options.

Many of the panels were not straight and did not line up correctly. Also, one of the panels had pieces of paint peeling off. Poorly made.
