Vineyardhunter - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
Likes: inexpensive, was what my daughter wanted, looks stylish-ish, drawers work well, wasn't difficult to put together. Dislikes: Instructions were not fabulous, but easy enough that 2 of us were able to put it together in about 45 mins. Construction is cheap, but you get what you pay for.

Love the side shelves - 3 years ago, Verified purchaser
We needed something to hold our Wi-Fi equipment but also wanted something to serve a purpose and this desk is it! Gave it 4 vs 5 because I wouldn't use it for work but it's good for the kids to use.

love the quality and design. I've read reviews saying that the drawer tracks don't work, false. the drawer tracks are smooth and work fine the reviewer probably didn't assemble correctly. then I saw a review saying there were pre drilled holes on the top. this reviewer put the top on upside down. I got this desk on sale for $150 and idk if I would purchase at full price. that being said its a great desk and has great quality.

You Get What You Pay For

Not What I Expected - 3 years ago, Verified purchaser
For almost $150, I expected a better quality. The manufacturer doesn't give you step by step instructions, only pictures/diagrams of the steps of assembly. No bueno for amateurs or first time DIY earthlings. My drawers started coming off within two weeks. The photo I attached is after two months of assembly. Yes, it comes with glue, however, the glue used isn't the best. And yes, I used a mallet and even a small hammer with industrial glue on the drawer doors to insure they would stay. It's pretty and it's actually bigger than expected which I love yet the durability of the drawer doors, is disappointing. It's functional. So if you're looking for something to get by until you find something you're in love with, this is it, if not, don't waste your time (assembly took 3.5 hours).

Zach - 6 years ago, Verified purchaser
Nice desk. Well built, took longer to assemble then I would have expected, but that is also due in part to the quality of the desk itself. Only gets 4 stars because there are several pre-drilled holes on the desk top itself which I cannot possibly figure out the reason for. I have looked online and do not see optional other shelves or anything that go on top.

This desk is great, it gives me all the storage I need, especially that the bottom drawer is a file drawer. I put this desk together myself and had no issues.

It's a nice looking desk. Reason I gave a 3 star: It took a long time to put together. Instructions said 1 hour but it more like 2-3. Edges throughout of desk are sharp.

My mom had to come over and help me put it together. Basically, she did it all. The biggest problem was that there weren't really instructions. They are just pictures, so you kind of have no choice but to go slowly because there are a TON of pieces. I knew all about it from the prior reviews before receiving it, so I was prepared. I was a little unhappy with how long it took Target to get it shipped to me, but that isn't the desk, so whatever (it came from Pennsylvania). Now that it is put together, I am so glad I spent a ton of time researching and shopping. I got it for an excellent price through Target during their St. Patrick's Day sale. There is a ton of space on top, the one file drawer was a replacement for a two-drawer file cabinet and holds almost everything I had in it, the shelves are great for the modem and router and some other boxes I had to put on them. It's just an awesome desk with horrible assembly. I would still purchase it again.

I just finished putting this desk together myself. The instructions clearly say that it will take about an hour to put together with 2 people. By myself, it took 3 hours and I was not rushing at all. I stopped a few times to help my daughter with some school work and to get the tools I had forgotten in the beginning. I did not find it complicated at all to put together. The instructions were just pictures but they were clearly drawn out. Everything was perfectly labeled and in order. I did not once get frustrated with the desk like I have while putting other things together! It looks great and seems pretty sturdy! So far, I give this 5 stars all around.
