Rated 5 out of 5�by sb64 Huge, gorgeous and 19 Steps to assemble!
If you hate assembling furniture this is not the piece for you. Having just assembled 2 of the lateral file cabinets I was prepared (8 multistep steps) and then I opened the directions for this one and 19 multistep steps!!!! The first drawer took me 25 minutes but I got faster. I started at 7:30 and at 11:30 was on step 14. The next steps require that I actually put all components together into a desk and this baby is huge and heavy. Way bigger than I imagined so really check the measurements it is a 5 foot long desk, I didn't realize how big that was in my small office but I love it. Make sure you clean and put the pedestals where you are going to want them before adding top as the desk will be heavy to move around. It really is a big piece of furniture. I wouldn't say it is difficult to assemble, it is time consuming because you put everything together but when you are finished it is a high quality wood laminate piece of furniture with solid wood drawer fronts. The parts come in separate pockets for each step. It is picture directions - not words but I found it very easy and clear to follow. I recommend you separate out the pieces as they don't come out in order of the directions and you will need help once you get to flipping the top and putting it on, the rest can be done by one person. My 17 year old son came and helped me with step 13 and 14 because I was dizzy from leaning over so much and over heated and had to reach way inside to screw 4 screws so he did those for me. I must admit putting on the top feels daunting and may take someone sitting below and 2 of us on top because you have to line up 12 or 14 posts to holes. Haven't done this yet. I couldn't buy this desk for anything close to this price preassembled so if you want quality and can spare about 5 hours of time - get this desk. I am a 51+ woman with a master's degree and a good sense of construction and I did it almost all by myself with a phillips head screw driver and a hammer for the feet. It was fun and I feel invested in the desk.

Rated 5 out of 5�by Sony Great desk!!
Such an affordable piece of furniture for my home office set up- looks great and was not too bad to set up, either. The cabinets are very spacious, and you even have a little nook on the right side to throw a few documents that you might need to use on a daily basis for easy access.
Luckily, I didn't have any issues with broken or missing pieces. Overall, I am very satisfied and love this desk!

This desk is well made, quality piece of furniture. It could be used in an office or home. I purchased to be used at home. It is in our family room. It looks like furniture not just a desk. It was on sale for a great price.

Rated 4 out of 5�by BigNormando Great product for the price
This desk is a great piece to make your home office feel real. It takes a little bit of time to construct but well worth it. All the steps have the hardware in separate bags for ease of use. During assembly, the desktop was damaged and they sent a replacement piece within days! I hope to be using this desk for a while.
