Beautiful desk...assembly requires patienceNov 14, 2010
By Martin Cortes
I searched diligently for a nice desk under $200 locally and online. I was getting frustrated because there seem not to be a lot of choices , and some where just not that attractive. This desk caught my eye on another website but I waited a day to buy it because a lot of reviewers were complaining on how difficult the assembly was with the desk. It seemed like most people thought it was a very nice desk so I went ahead and ordered it. I received it rather quickly and shipping was free which was a plus.
I am going to agree and say the assemble requires patience; however, it is not as difficult as some mentioned. It has a lot of small parts, mostly screws. I think the reason for this is that this is a very well designed desk. I am in the middle of the pack as far as being handy, and I was able to handle it without much trouble. It did take me about 7 hours to put it together but I paced my self to make sure I did not mess up. Some people might cry at that amount of time but the end result is well worth it .
Now on to the desk itself...The wood on it feels like real wood , not like the cheap stuff you get at Walmart. It feels very sturdy not wobbly like some other furniture you sometimes buys. The designed is great in that you have a cabinet for your pc tower to hide it and you have filing cabinet and 2 drawers. I like the fact that you have some counter space between the your cabinets and top part of desk. It works great for little stuff like Ipods, etc. The desk is heavy so here is a tip... BUY MOVING MEN SLIDERS AND PUT ON THE LEGS TO MAKE IT EASY TO MOVE IT. I bought some at Target that stay on and they blend in very nice with the desk.
So in conclusion , yes I wish the desk assembly was less time consuming but the end result will make you forget about it. You can either buy an easy to assemble desk that you might find from Walmart and then you are not sure if you like it, or you can suffer a little bit putting it together and be in love with your new work station . I would buy this again. Hope it helps someone :)

A Few Errors In The Instructions, But Nice OverallMar 17, 2012
I'm a professional audio/video installer for 30 years and I've assembled a lot of racks and desks and this one still took about 2 hours and 45 minutes, but then I'm very fastidious about detail. First, there are some errors in the instructions to look out for. Step 14 tells you to put hinge parts on the left and right side panels (1&2) of the CPU section. This is false, they go only on part one, the left side. It would be a bit weird if the door had hinges on both sides. The diagram also fails to show enough detail to be sure how to position these hinge parts. Before you separate the two hinge pieces, hold the hinge onto the left panel with the larger part facing outward. This is the position for the smaller (8A) piece. Only loosen the one raised screw on the hinges and slide the two apart. the other inset screw is for adjusting the hinges later.
Another problem, in step 21, you put the drawer rails onto the panels, three on each side. You will find later (Step 23), that when you go to lock the base to those panels, you can't access the locking cams on the bottom because the large drawer rail covers them. You will need to remove one of the rail screws and swing the rail aside to tighten, then put back.
The last thing is, there is a hole behind the keyboard tray for running cables through and a plastic piece that is not in the parts list nor anywhere in the instructions. It wouldn't be such a mystery, but the piece is too small to snap into the hole tightly and there are no screw holes to attach it. I guess you could either drill holes into the piece or glue it into the back panel. There is another snap-in piece that fits inside this that has an adjustable aspect.
Definitely use a cordless screwdriver for most of the assembly, but be careful not to over-torque. The most difficult pieces to put in are the larger locking pins because they tend to lean if you're not careful and could go in crooked. They need to be straight for proper assembly and don't tighten them any more than to the last thread.
Be VERY careful putting in the hanging file folder rods. They do warn you not to tighten them too much but even with slight finger tightening, you can go too far and they can punch through the drawer face.
"happydieter" commented that this desk was "very low" and that he/she was very short. I find this odd because I'm 6'6" with long legs and there is still over an inch of clearance above my knees and the keyboard tray with my legs bent at 90 degrees. It's taller than my old desk where my knees rub the bottom of the keyboard drawer.
The desk is very sturdy and looks nice. There are large oval cut-outs in the back panels so it is easy to run cables and also allows for heat to escape from your computer.
Since nobody seems to think people are actually interested in complete dimensions of a desk (huh?), here are some details:
Top desk width = 47-5/8"
Top desk depth = 23-5/8"
Top of desk height = 29-1/2"
Keyboard drawer width = 24-1/2"
Keyboard drawer depth = 11-13/16"
Keyboard drawer fully extended comes out 7-1/2" from desktop
Height from bottom of keyboard drawer = 25-1/2"
Height of CPU area (without middle shelf) = 21"
Width of CPU area = 10-1/2" (9-1/2" wide clearance to pass door)
Depth of CPU area = 17-1/4" (door closed)
Area above drawer and desktop = 4-3/4" height, about 13" wide)
Seating area between storage = 19-3/4" (narrow)
I am reducing my rating to four stars based on new discoveries. The middle area under the desk is a bit narrow and takes some getting used to when getting in and out so as not to hit your legs on the desk. The keyboard drawer is difficult to lock into the fully extended position; One side usually moves back a bit. The biggest disappointment is that the CPU area is not large enough for a computer that uses a regular ATX motherboard. Only those micro towers with the micro-ATX motherboards will fit. If you're computer shopping, this would mean cases that house at maximum boards that are 9.75" x 9.75" will probably fit. Case depth should be under 17" for the desk door to close.

Best dang desk this side of malibuJan 05, 2011
By J. C. Heller
Nothing but compliments on this dope desk. I spent two weeks looking at everything on Amazon and overstock, etc. This one has been called "unique" and is often credited with curing polio. Do yourself a favor and buy 10!

Excellent and sturdy design, fitting it is a nightmareFeb 26, 2011
I bought this product, after seeing the ravishing reviews here. I admit, putting the table together was frustrating. When I say, frustrating it means frustration MAX! Also, the small screw driver they provide with this table to set it up, is almost useless. Get a power screw driver of sorts, before you even begin putting this mammoth table together. The manual that comes together with the table is top notch. So, if you have the patience to carefully follow the manual and use the power driver, you should be done ideally in 5 hours. Max, 8 hours as already mentioned here.
Now, that we have discussed the cons of this table, which is only putting the table together. Lets take a look at the pro's. Very sturdy. I have two 24 inch screens sitting on top + books and laptop and I have no problem. The slide for the keyboard works great. The drawers fit in well and the bookshelf/CPU box is big enough. The only other thing, I might complain is about the leg space. As I am someone who is huge, 6 foot 4 inches. The width of the leg space area is not enough for me. But that doesn't deter me from giving this deserving table its 5 stars.
If you are looking for a nice and sturdy table with good design and moderate price, Look no further.
