Rated 4 out of 5★ by mjlav pretty nice desk for the veneer-over MDF style. Table top was damaged in shipping but Sauder says they have a replacement on the way - pleasantly surprised how easy ordering a replacement was! 08/13/2012
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Darecorator This desk is very pretty and elegant looking. It is MDF covered with paper but you really have to touch it to realize that. In my home it's just me so it won't take a beating. I wouldn't recommend it for a house with kids.It was easy to put together after sorting out all the little pieces and hardware. It took me 5.5 hours working alone. When working with the sides, it would be helpful to work with two people because if the sides topple, the MDF will break. Wood glue and a sturdy clamp fixes that. Also, I would reinforce a few spots where there could be torque on it at the back between the towers. Glue an extra piece of wood (like a paint stick) to it.The clip in the front that holds the keyboard lip up will not hold. It's nylon and stretches so the front will not stay up. Pre-drill, glue, and screw in a small hook and eye. on the inside sides of this lip.Another tip, where you see the white of the MDF if something is not perfectly aligned (two corners missed by 1/32 inch) simply use brown shoe polish on it. Rub it in and buff. This also works for small scuffs. Carefully applied craft paint, quickly smoothed and buffed works well also.I love this desk. It's beautiful in my home. 11/27/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Versandy Sauder Arbor Gate Computer Crendenza This is a very nice piece of furniture. Some pieces were marked as A, B C but most of the pieces were not marked. I think that in the future all pieces should be marked so that it can easily be assembled. Other than that, I like the crendensa and it fits well with the furniture I already have. 03/29/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by MommaDof2 Great desk & Great price Great quality desk for the price! It is not solid wood, of course, but it is just as good. The hardware and "wood" are definitely high quality. The description says "Cherry Finish" so I was expecting it to have a tint of red, but it doesn't. It's a nice medium/dark shade and has the look of real wood. It took my husband and myself about 3-4 hours to put it together. Just be sure to separate all of the screws and label them before you start because it would be a pain if you didn't (there are about 15 types of screws/bolts)...this saved us lots of time. The instructions were very detailed and we had no problems at all putting this desk together. We have another Sauder piece and this one is just as nice! Lives up to the Sauder name and worth every penny! 03/25/2013
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Myself524 Great product for the money I found this item at Walmart for a great deal less than anywhere else, which by itself made it quite a deal. The delivery time to the store was phenomenal. The notifications of the items arrival was greatly appreciated. Picked the item up at the store, all 194 pounds of it, and was assisted by two young men who picked it up and slid it into the trunk of my car. There were a couple of rough spots in assembling the unit which could have been eliminated by a little more clarity in the directions. At the end of the day I have to say that the whole transaction. from ordering, thru shipping and pickup was a most excellent experience and that now, having assembled the product, have a very nice piece of furniture. 04/30/2013
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Kellyabl Great price! Beautiful looking for a great price! It seems very sturdy but we've only had it for a month so only time will tell. The only drawback is the insane amount of hardware pieces that can be overwhelming. Instructions aren't always clear. It's definitely a two person job and it's helpful if one of them is good at putting things together! It was missing a couple of screws and a drawer side was cracked but Sauder sent out the new pieces very quickly. Overall we are very satisfied with our purchase and would recommend it. It's a beautiful piece of furniture. 11/01/2013
