    Nice looking piece of furniture

    Customer review by Mayoroflj

    This is a heavy piece of furniture, about 100# . Not an easy piece to put together, a lot of patience and time needed. It arrived in about 10 days and after unpacking there was 3 very noticeable gouges and large scratches on the furniture. Whether it was done before being shipped or during shipment. After unpacking and finding it would have been difficult for me to wrestle this cumbersome 100# package, repack it and transport it back by Fedex to be shipped back at my expense . Almost, all in all , I am almost happy with the product. I would think that if the product was damaged BEFORE shipment that it would have been caught at the factory and if it was damaged by FedEx during shipment then they would also know that someplace along the line and done an exam before continuing on. Once it was put together , it is a nice looking piece of furniture. If you buy and are not that comfortable with assembling products, I would suggest you get a handyman to put this together.

    I have been watching this desk for two years, examined it in the store, read all the reviews and finally decided to throw out the old desk and purchase this one. I already have 6 of the matching Ashwood Road Bookcases and the bonus was, the design matches my cherry finish fireplace, as well. Will likely purchase the Ashwood Road Coffee Table, to use for paperwork, eventually! Admittedly, I was a little afraid of the assembly, judging from other reviews on the difficulty, but happily, assembly was a snap, although, as mentioned, a bit tedious. Item arrived well-packaged, but there was damage to both front columns (part K2), that appeared to be manufacturer related. Immediately contacted Sauder directly and in 3 days, I had the new parts. Exceptionally good service. As for the assembly, yes, there are a lot of parts, but by following the directions to a T, had no difficulties. Took my time and assembly went without a hitch. The only exception was the small Catch (AA) and Latch (BB), on the interior left hand side of the drawer. If you tighten the Latch completely, before lifting the hinges to close the keyboard tray, the Latch will not be aligned properly. Keep the Latch loose, until after you assemble the entire drawer, then push the Catch into the Latch and then tighten (see attached image). If you have a tendency to move furniture around, the other suggestion I will make, is to add good sliders to the bottom of the legs prior to flipping it over. The small Tack Glides (FF) are insufficient for moving a piece of furniture of this weight. The finish gets "dinged" easily, so having a cherry touch-up pen or Old English Scratch Cover for Dark Woods, will be a handy addition to keep this lovely desk looking beautiful for years to come. All in all, assembly was a breeze, the desk looks great, it is very sturdy and have no problem recommending any of the Ashwood Road matching pieces.

    I purchased two of these desks. Both had manufacturer's defects. Of course, you don't discover them until you've already spent five hours constructing them. The first desk didn't haves holes properly drilled and placed in one of the legs. I had to use glue and other measures to correct for the problem, and am worried that, in time, the leg will become unstable. I discovered the problem after I had spent five hours putting it together. The second desk did have the holes properly placed in the area I mentioned above. That proves the first desk has a manufacturing defect. The second desk had a manufacturing defect in the drawer assembly that I didn't encounter in the first desk, confirming that the second desk is defective. It took me four hours to assemble the second desk. Now, what do you do? These desks are very heavy and take forever to assemble. How do you return them after you've spent nine hours assembling them? Be prepared to live with what you get, but do not expect to be pleased. The desks do look good, but I'm upset with my purchases.

    We purchased this desk for my wife's office. It took about two hours at a leisurely pace to assemble. The only problem assembling it were two small screw holes drilled in the wrong place. This was easily corrected with a small drill bit. Just look at the instructions carefully and note the position of holes and make sure the pieces correspond to the drawings. The desk is very solid, and as mentioned in other reviews, it doesn't look like a desk in a box. This was a very good looking addition to the office and well worth the price. There was room on the desk for a full tower PC, keyboard, speakers and flat screen monitor, with writing room to spare. The drawer is both useful for a keyboard/mouse platform or general storage. Great value.

    Took some time to put it together BUT I think that pays off. This desk is SOLID and isn't going anywhere. Upon delivery, I inspected the condition of the packaging to make sure there were no signs of damage. Desk was packed very well, BUT after putting it together I did notice, what appeared to be a slightly damaged portion of the veneer on the desk top. I contacted the manufacturer and they send what looked like a felt marker, the same color as the desk. Tooke 5 seconds and the blemish was GONE. The drawer is HUGE, plenty of room for the keyboard, mouse, and lots of other things, without being cluttered. It turns out to be a perfect computer desk for my husband and he is thrilled with it.

    I was very excited to purchase this desk as I have the matching file cabinet. I am very disappointed with this product. It is very difficult to put together. The pre-drilled holes do not match up with the adjoining pieces. The dowels that were supposed to hold the top down were not significant to hold the top on,when you screw them in the plastic strips from them.It took over 4 hrs to assemble it and it still is not fully assembled. The directions are not self explanatory,especially the drawers. When you tip the desk back up the top comes right off. For $150 and the endorsement of Better Homes and Gardens I expected far more quality and ease in assembling this product. I am very very disappointed with this product and in the process of contacting customer service. I would never refer this product to friends or family. It looks great on the outside but......

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    It took me about 20 minutes just to get the pieces out of the box. The total box was to heavy for one person to even move. All parts were there and no damage to anything. But, when I saw how many pieces there were, I was stunned. So, I put the pieces in an area where I could look at them and did nothing for about 5-6 days. Then I did begin, I got the first step done and waited another two days. Then I put the "little" pieces together and waited another day. It was daunting to say the very least. But, I knew I could do it, just needed to be motivated. Finally got it together, although I did decide to leave off the mouse drawer. Now, it's set up and I really do like it. It matches my fireplace/TV unit perfectly. If I knew it was this toughs to assemble, I probably wouldn't have bought it. It ain't easy for an older person to assemble, but now it done and I'm proud....

    I took 1hr to get it together, after husband said I'll do it tomorrow, I got the manual and do it myself, my son love it, I got it for my Home Office and a place for my son to do his Homework. Look very expensive, for the price i paid for it. I would recommend anyone and everyone to buy this desk , especially if you want a expensive look at a low price. Received it in 100% condition. I put glass on top for my son like to drinks water and don't know if it waterproof. I don't want the water mark from the cup on the desk. I hope this review helps.

    I thought the desk would be hard to put together given some of the reviews but those people must not be able to follow very basic instructions. It was very easy to assemble. I did feel kinda dumb because I thought the drawers came with it and they don't but I still love my new desk. It is perfect!

    This desk took around 2 hours to build and it is solid. The only complaint I have is that the drawer face has a gap between it and the drawer bottom. Other than that it is a beautiful piece of furniture. I purhcased it as a birthday gift for a friend that needed a desk for her Lap Top and printer. She is very happy with the desk and is looking for a chair to go with it. I had it shipped Site to Store, it arrived in a timely manner and the way it was packaged no harm could come to it. Thank you Walmart.

    • A. I actually went specifically to a Walmart store to see the back of the desk today and it is finished enough to show the back. I don't know if the design has changed since some of the earlier reviews, but I too will have the back facing the door and it really does not look bad at all. All the edges are finished - even the edges on the inside of the flip-down drawer are finished. I have five bookcases that match this desk and it all looks great together.
