Sauder� Heritage Hill Double-Pedestal Desk, 64 3/4W, Classic Cherry
Great and fast shipping
I went to the local store on Sunday afternoon looking for a desk. I found a desk that I liked, and it was on sale, but there would be a delivery charge. However, I needed to make some final measurements before I purchased it, just to make sure it would fit. Later that night, I decided to look online and double check the desk dimensions, etc. It turns out, that once I went to the website, they gave me a 20% off coupon. So, I ordered the desk online (with free home delivery) on Sunday night. The desk was delivered to my house on Wednesday afternoon. So, I got the desk that I looked at in-store, for 20% off and with free delivery.
Also, I have to comment on the product itself and the factory packing. It was packed so well, with foam and wrappings, that it was shipped without a scratch. And Sauder did an excellent job with manufacture and packing. Each piece was labelled. The screws & hardware needed for each step was packed individually and labelled clearly. And the product was precision made. Each hole was pre-drilled in exactly the correct position, etc. Although there were probably 100's of individual pices, the assembly was easy (and fun) and the finished desk looks perfect!!
Very high quality and good looking desk!!!

Very nice looking desk for the price. Ordered online and picked up in store the same day. It looks much more expensive than it is and it fits perfectly in our office!

Nice executive desk
I wish i could rate 4.5 stars. It's not quite a 5 star product. But for the money, it's a pretty good desk. Obviously it's made of your run of the mill mass produced recycled press board material. But if you were getting solid wood you'd pay well into 4 digit prices for a desk this size. Even though it's mdf press board, it's engineered well so that it holds together pretty well and solid as long as you don't strip out any screw holes. One plus side to the press board is weight savings. If this thing was solid cherry or mahogany it would weigh a ton. Fully assembled, two people can pretty easily muscle it around and move it. I will say that assembly takes up some time. I am really mechanically inclined, have endless amounts of tools and have built desks from scratch before and it took me almost 4 hours to assemble myself. For the not so inclined or motivated... I would give it a full day. A second set of skilled and motivated hands and a few extra cups of coffee then I'd say this thing can definitely be put together in a couple hours. Line up was pretty good on the unit I picked up. All the drawers and slides have elongated notches to realign and readjust as needed. I was able to get every drawer perfect. Oh, directions say use a hammer... DON'T use a regular steel headed hammer on anything on this desk for assembly.. do yourself and your brand new desk a favor and use or go out and get one if you don't already have... a RUBBER mallet. You will destroy every assembly part and panel on this thing if you go wackin it with a metal hammer. Other than that, directions were fairly straight to the point and easy to follow and understand. Especially if you've ever put stuff like this together before. It looks nice, feels like a professional feeling desk. I would highly recommend this in a home or even a small business office.

Another fine Sauder Product
Read all the comments about being too complicated, lots of parts, well
there are a lot of parts, but if your handy and can read instructions, take your time, all the parts were there, no damage in transit, and the finished desk (after about 6 hours of assembly by one person, was very worthwhile. I love it! Lauder make good furniture affordable ! I should mention that the carton weighs in at about 187 lbs, so you want to assembly the desk close to where you want it, as it has to flipped over, and that takes some muscle!
