So far I love the new desk. It accommodates all my stuff and looks nice in the area of my home where I have it.

Rated 4 out of 5�by Kelly Nice but some factory flaws
First and for most, love the desk. It's huge! Looks lovely. Fairly easy to put together with two people. Our troubles came down to the small drawers. For the life of me we could not get them to go in their slots. This resulted in my punching them as if that was the magical move needed to complete the desk. As I sat there in defeat I noticed the gliders were screwed on backwards from the factory. A quick fix and they went into place with no issues. It took us longer to figure out those stupid little drawers than it did to put together the entire desk.

Looks good but it is very flimsy, Once unpack almost impossible to repack if you are not satisfied and want to return.

Rated 4 out of 5�by Office Nice desk - need pallet jack to receive
We ordered 5 desks for our company and, even though they were ordered on separate orders, they arrived together on pallets. When the shipper arrived, we were called to pick the items up off the shipping truck ourselves even though we have a 1st floor office. If we did not have a pallet jack, I don't know what we would have done. The boxes are very heavy. This desk comes in two boxes. One of the boxes was very large (slightly larger than the size of a pallet)
In general, the items were packaged well, but the quality control before packaging was so-so. Almost every piece had a few little scratches. Fortunately, the top pieces seemed to be in pretty good condition and they seemed to have more scratch resistant surfaces than the other parts.
Assembly was laid out in 33 fairly easy to follow steps. We had two women put it together in about 6.5 - 7 hours. (Having two people was very helpful as one person could hold the pieces in place while another screwed them together. It was also helpful to have two people when lifting the very heavy center top piece onto the desk). I would recommend carefully looking at the diagrams during each step and not using the wood glue. Even though we tried to be cautious, we made two errors in assembly that we were able to fix only because we had not used the wood glue. The desk is plenty sturdy without it. I would also recommend building the desk very close to the location you intend it to be used. If you have a lot of space to layout the parts, it is very helpful. Additionally, don't be surprised if the drawers do not line up when you are finished. You will likely need to make adjustments to the front of each drawer, when complete (as suggested by the diagram in step 32).
Overall, we are satisfied with this desk so far. It looks very nice and has the right amount of space and storage for our office needs.
