This desk was one of the best purchases I ever made online. The quality and looks to the desk are excellent. I found the instructions to be easy to follow and constructing the desk was a breeze. I suggest having your own tools to use ( allen wrench and screwdriver ). The tools that come with the desk are cheaply made and are usable, but not the best to use. Other than that small criticism, I find the desk a great buy. It is sturdy, sleek, and well made.
I'll be honest, it took me (I'm a woman, not that it should matter) a few hours to put the desk together. Instructions were clear, it simply took me a while because there are 29 different parts and just about as many different types of screws I had to deal with. The desk is beautiful, sturdy, spacious, and a really good price for what you are getting. The drawers have a lot of room and I love the sliding drawer (which I did not know the desk had when I bought it). The sliding drawer is located on top of the other two drawers. In the picture on walmart.com, I thought that area was a cubby hole of sorts but, it actually rolls out and I find that I actually really like it. Everything slides beautifully, nothing sticks (drawers, sliding drawer and keyboard 'drawer'). The only negative thing I can say, and it isn't really pointed at the desk, is that I cannot fit my printer on the desk as well. It turns out that my new computer screen is a monster and takes up most of the room. That said, I still a nice slot of space available and I put it to good use, this desk is amazing and I am so happy that I bought it. My boyfriend fell in love with it the moment he saw it assembled and now he wants to get one as well.

Classy looking with clean lines!
Love my new work station. Perfect as a computer work station, sewing center or craft station. Easy to assemble and a great purchase price. Very stable and easy to wipe clean with glass cleaner. Arrived ahead of scheduled! No to find a chair to go with it!
Typical cheap Chinese product. Soft metal screws just good enough to tighten once. Paper thin wood laminate, just begging to tear off. Missing trim piece, sticky sliders for keypad, drawer and shelf. I'm not sure how long this desk wil last. However, it did assemble easily, all parts clearly marked.

Horrible to assemble, but useful once constructed
It took me half a day to assemble this table, and it was a horrid task, the holes were not drilled cleanly enough and screwing anything took way too much work. The table is shipped in one box, super heavy, and the Fedex guy left it at my management office and not by my door. neither fedex , nor this store that wont take my review if I name it, cared when I called the customer service about being unable to carry it up two floors. So all in all, I was pretty pissedd. Once assembled, the desk is a nice big size, and has a drawer too. I like that the edges are not sharp so you wont get a corn on your wrist. The table doesnt look that good though, it looks average - I guess its the laminate finish. But overall, it is being put to good use.
These days with everyone having a laptop, tablet, netbook, smartphone; it was very difficult finding a good computer desk, where I have enough room to place my large size desktop underneath and my printer and 23" LCD monitor on the desk, yet still having enough room to do paperwork on the desk. Although the search took many hours and days (to find a reasonable price, yet accommodating desk). The 47" width, is an optimal solution for a bedroom/computer room. The 3 draws and extra space on top, along with the pull out keyboard make this a very comfortable yet attractive appearing desk. The wood is well made and all the pieces are constructed very well. Instructions were clear and precise to the point and extra pieces were accommodated as well. The desk wasn't too difficult to put together, although it does take a good 3 hours or so. I would highly recommend this desk to anyone in the market and it's reasonably price with great grade material.
The TV Stand is serving its purpose and I have to say is quite sturdy. It looks nice unless you look at it closely, then you can see the tape on the left front corner where the wood veneer covering was peeled back and had to be taped so it wouldn't peel any further. Then if you look at the right top corner you can see it is smashed a little from the shipping. It must have had a rough trip or the packing materials are not strong enough to protect it. I would have sent it back but didn't see those things until about half way through the six hour assembly time. By the time the entire bottom was assembled and I flipped the top over to put it on is when I noticed the peel and smash. By then I just decided not to disassemble it to send it back, so just finished it and hope no one notices it is less then perfect. Otherwise it is in my living room with my TV on it and looks nice from afar.

Stylish and affordable desk
We needed a smaller desk to suit our son's room. He wanted something that would complement his all-new Ikea furnishings and we all loved this desk on sight. We received it just 3 days after ordering and everything was in perfect condition. It wasn't bad to put together (although one screw was not right and had to be shaved down) and it looks fantastic in the room. Not sure if it's terribly durable but should be fine for the years while our son is home.
