Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by WisAm ALL assembly required.
Unless you have a couple days to assembly this, do not get it. I did it alone, but it took two days and probably 4-5 hours (though I am not a professional). EVERY little thing has to be put together. It reeks of chemical, wonder how long it will take for that to go away. I was missing parts, I hope they send otherwise I won't have 2 drawers. I liked the style and the price, but would not do it again. No matter how hard I tried, there's still gaps between everything, too. But it's up now and I will probably leave it if I ever move.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by katkozi Great price, looks nice
I have yet to install this desk, as I am waiting until I move in June. The desk is extremely heavy, which makes me think it will be very sturdy. I think this is a great value for an executive desk. The desk is finished from all sides allowing you to have it be in the middle of the room. I can't speak to how difficult assembly will be, but from what other have said, i'm sure difficult. I did check the pieces for any damage, and it was sufficiently wrapped, so there appeared to be no damage.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shirley Love it. Have enjoyed it for about a week
Had home depot assemble it for me. I'm a senior citizen and female, so couldn't do it my self, bad back. Nice design and has enough drawers and shelves to hold all my papers and stuff.. My computer and printer fits comfortably on it. Looks great in my apartment living room.
It's sturdy and I just love it. I don't buy a lot of things on the computer, like to see them first hand, but I'm glad I bought this. Wouldn't have found this in any store.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by molsonrn Don't do it.
I had read all of the reviews on this desk, but after months of looking for the "perfect new desk" I settled on this one and decided that all the bad things others had said just wouldn't happen to me. I wanted a unique looking desk in black and I just couldn't find anything I liked better than the looks of this one. There is no horrible smell like one other reviewer noted, however putting it together is simply not worth the money saved by not buying a desk that was fully-assembled. 10 hours, many youtube videos, and several fits of frustrated crying later, it was together. The instructions are ridiculously not helpful. Drawers and keyboard tray to not fit as nicely as I'd like. Size of the desktop is great and it looks pretty good. I'm hoping it will be similar to labor pains and I'll forget all the turmoil and stress of putting it together after some time passes.

My husband spent most of the day working on building this desk. He finally finished putting all the pieces together and situated the desk in our room when it broke!! The top part of the desk disconnected from the shelves and the part where the keyboard is supposed to go totally came off. We are still using the desk, however the top is not mounted and the keyboard is on top of the desk.

The instructions for assembly were good except I had trouble determining which piece went to the front or to the back of the unit; for example, I had to turn the doors around because I had them upside down and they didn't close easily. I did the assembly by myself and it took me 8 hours. With help it would have gone more smoothly. Overall, the directions were pretty easy to follow.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer looks great, just really bad smell
I put them together in the middle of March, it is fun for me to put every piece together, but the problem is I can't use it because of its strong smell. I can't stay in my office. I have to leave the window open and move out of my office. Right now I am still out of my office. Hope the quality of paint can be better!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AshYarb Good price, hard to put together
I really like the final product once the desk was put together but it took my husband a weekend to do it. About 4 hours on Saturday and another 4 hours on Sunday. It looks good and matches our decor so we are happy with it!
