When I picked this up from the store several corners of the boxes were damaged. When we got it home to assemble there were large scratches in the middle of some of the pieces. Had to return back to the store.
I bought this desk and hutch and the matching lateral file because i liked the way they looked. There were scratches and missing pieces on the desk and the hutch and the lateral file. Customer service was prompt and helpful but this is particle board and cheap quality for the money. It looks nice but be careful not to scratch it. It isnt even veneer, it is covered in thin plastic and it is VERY time consuming and difficult to put together. I am keeping the desk because it does look nice but i sent the file cabinet back to walmart. Save your money and get something thats made out of real wood!

Nice Value, Bad Delivery
I read a review on another website that mentioned the desk was damaged when they received it. I had this desk shipped Site to Store so that if it was damaged I didn't have to bother with taking it home.
Sure enough, the front of the desk was split open and it was too damaged to accept.
The company that produced the desk simply did a HORRIBLE job at packing it. There was no packing in the front of the box save a small sheath of plastic foam like stuff.
Walmart did not make me keep the desk, however. They actually refunded the money on the spot. They were going to reorder for me, but the desk had already disappeared from the website.
Walmart = good
Company that made desk = bad
This desk looks nice, but it came with some damage. And not from walmart, this package was 100% perfect, it was damaged from Sauder. Also, as any desk from Sauder the doors rub slightly. I expect this from a cheap desk, but not one like this. The desk is also darker than what is pictured, but that worked out fine for me. Overall, it's a nice desk, it's what I wanted, I just wish there wasn't the little bit of damage.
The desk is very nice looking for the price. It's a big step up from my old desk where a chair would not fit under at all so that stayed in the middle of the room and was annoying, however I also bought this amazing high back business chair and unfortunately that does not fit all the way under the desk either but it's much better then the set up I had. I'm very happy with the desk. doesn't take up as much room because it's tall instead of wide. Did take my husband all day to put together. I think he mentioned the directions were not as clear as they could be. But he didn't throw anything or go nuts so it must have been ok.
Desk in Autumn Maple finish with Sunset Granite accent. Two drawers. Lower drawer holds letter-size hanging files. Cubbyhole storage.
What our shoppers say:
Silly of me to think it actually had a granit top!
The item description states, \"Also, the granite top surface makes it look pricier than it actually is.\" Even though the next line states the desk is made out of engineered wood, I actually thought the top was going to be stone. It is not. Everything about the desk is faux. It's a nice desk, just all artificial. Installation was easy. Seems to be a robust piece of furniture.

Very good quality.
My son put the desk together and I absolutely love it. It is a beautiful piece of furniture and it meets all of my expectations. I priced this desk with other retailers and Wal-Mart beat them by at least $100.
I absolutely LOVE this desk!! Bought it for Xmas for the hubby along with other office equipment & such, wow what an awesome desk and the price just blows me away. We set it up very quickly & would you believe every part was there and fit the way it should!!!! I have an old Sauder desk that was only $49 basic and want one of these, but my room is not configured to fit it. If you are considering this desk, I definitely recommend to not look at any others and get one before they are gone.
I needed a desk to start editing on my computer, keeping it on my lap not a good idea. So I went looking for some options. This exact same desk was at NFM for about $20 more and I could either drive to Omaha, NE and pick it up OR they would ship it for $50. I liked the desk, not that much; till I saw it on Walmart's website, not as cheap but free shipping! No brainer on my part.\nI'm strange and like putting things together and the directions were super easy to follow. The end result is amazing. Looks classy and a great piece for a room.\nThe pull-out drawer is small so don't overfill it. But I love the extra space and having a place to store my computer. I put it together myself but would recommend having a helper.\nThanks!
Desk is exactly what I need. BEST THING: I would give a 10\/10 for this manufacturer in their clear instructions and illustrations for assembly. Everything that needed to be labeled was labeled. All small items were clearly packaged and counted. Nothing was missing. No hassles and everything fit together perfectly. I was able to assemble this desk by myself (I am a 64 year old woman). And I love it.
This desk is great for the price. However, after organizing all the of pieces in need order, it took 3 hrs for two people to put it together; partly because some of the pictures are not accurately portrayed. Be careful that screws are put it straight or they will come through the wood. Nevertheless, overall, this is a nice looking piece of furniture for any office and a GREAT DEAL (bundled with a chair for $114).
