Rated 5 out of 5�by ncprofessional TOP NOTCH QUALITY AND APPEARANCE!
I cannot believe how great of a price we got on this desk! I would expect to pay something upwards of $500+ for this desk. Yes, it is particle board construction; however, the laminate work and overall appearance of this desk makes it very hard to tell the difference!
We got the woodgrain version of this desk and we are thoroughly happy with our purchase. The desk took about 2 hours to put together, but it was well worth the time! Everyone who sees this desk loves it...and I cannot believe we only paid $152 for this desk! (After using a $15 off coupon on the sale price)

Rated 4 out of 5�by CreativeMom Great Desk for a Teenager
We bought this desk for my teenager. She needed a place for doing homework, but also wanted ample shelf space for her books. This is a good, solid desk. The writing surface is hard wood, which is very durable. We took off the cabinet door on the side to allow space for her larger books.
We are now searching for an under cabinet style light that she can use that will not get too hot -- like those made for kitchens. Like all hutches, the writing surface is kind of dark and putting a lamp on the desk compromises writing space. It would be great if Office Depot rec'd a light like that....
The finish on this is kind of, um, cheap looking. My daughter doesn't care -- for a teen it is fine. She is likely going to paint it some wild fun color anyway. But if you want something more high end the fake wood finish may be tacky for you. I think this would be a nicer product if it was just solid white instead of faux finish.
Really easy to put together, but took a long time. Many parts! But instructions were clear and easily to follow. Took about three hours to put together.

Rated 2 out of 5�by rk1sails There' a Lot of Pieces-Poor Finish
I was pleasingly surprised how the screws and fasteners were all compartmentalized. Most the unit went together okay. The Chinese use all pictures and no wording to describe how to put it together which is a real negative. You have to really study the pictures carefully before proceeding. My biggest screw-up was it never said the large back cardboard panel was supposed to over lap the deck top so after placing 20-30 nails in the back and installing the upper unit, I discovered the problem. Also be very careful of the poor finish top. When setting the large upper portion, it set on the desk top and put several ugly and permanent scratches in it. They should have included a touch-up kit.

Really nice desk. Good price and easy to follow instructions. All hardware was individually packaged for each step of the assembly process.
