Good compact desk.
by -
I got pleasure while assembling it. High quality, no damage, instructions are extremely clear. It is not very wide and not very long, just to fit your laptop and books. I use it for studies and it seems to me to be comfortable.

This desk is more than it appears!
by -
I had this desk shipped directly to my home, and it arrived in excellent condition. All of the edges were protected by a sturdy, thick paperboard-type of wrap-around edge protector, and the item was shrink-wrapped entirely in plastic. It took me about 2 hours to assemble the desk, and I used only a Phillips and slotted screwdriver and a tack hammer. All of the parts and pieces were included. The surface area of the desk is larger than it seems in the picture, and the cubbys are deeper than they are wide. It fits nicely into a small area or room. I plan to use it with my laptop, as a craft table, and for machine sewing. I discovered that I can stow my portable sewing machine in the lower cubby and shut the door completely. I was happy when I purchased it, but I was thrilled after I assembled it and saw how sturdy and functional it is. I've owned other Sauder products, and they have always been great products, and it was only because I moved that I would have to part with the previous item. The only thing that I would add to this desk is a slideout keyboard shelf. Since I don't use a keyboard with my laptop, the lack of a keyboard shelf wasn't an issue, although you could likely add one yourself by purchasing slides and making a shelf out of a board from the hardware store.

Brilliant desk (after assembled of course:D)
by -
Looks terrific. Been asked where did i buy it several times. Not easy to assemble though. Besides i don't think putting screw covers should be the last step because it's a little bit hard to press it over the inner screw after nailing the desk back H board. Took me a couple of hours to finally set it up. But it was fun :D

very good
by -
 Verified purchaser
Needed a small desk for a laptop and this one is perfect. As with all of Sauder products it went together very fast and is very strong. It came a couple of days faster than first told and with the way Sauder boxes them there was no damage at all. Very good.

Awesome nail station
by -
 Verified purchaser
I got this desk to serve 2 reasons for me. As a vanity and as as nail station. It is perfect. When I say nail station I mean for myself as this will not work in a professional salon for clients as it does not have an open area in the back for legs to fit in properly. You could possible cut the back part short with a wood cutter but I am not sure how this particular material would react to being cut. Back to my review, it has 2 shelves on the right hand side and a bottom drawer. I love the bottom drawer it fits 2 on my nail plate binders, 3 XXL nail plates, and 6 photo albums filled with nail plates. I added a vinyl print to protect it from any nail polish stains or acetone spillage. You could also get a piece of glass cut and add it to the top. I purchased a medium sized mirror and placed it on the wall above the desk to serve as my vanity. It took the hubs about 35 mins to assemble. I hope this review is helpful to you.

fits the need perfectly
by -
 Verified purchaser
This desk was perfect for my daughter's room (she is just starting jr. high). The color blended with her furniture and whereas most desks are longer and deeper, this one was perfect. She loves it and now can do her homework at her desk as opposed to the floor or on her knees using her bed as a desk...not good. I built it myself with no help from my husband :) and it looks great. I would recommend if a decent economical workspace is needed for your child. It would be better if the corners where the sides meet the desktop were rounded but I haven't seen that in a "kit desk". Overall a perfect choice. .

Exactly what I needed
by -
 Verified purchaser
I am a college student and I was in need of a desk that had very specific and limited measurements since I am living in a small single room...I was nervous that it would be bigger than I expected but it really is just what I needed. It did take me close to 2 hours to set it up but I think it was worth it.

Great desk!!
by -
 Verified purchaser
This desk was very easy to assembly and the directions are pretty clear. The only part that took long was the door. It's pretty heavy. The tools were simple just a hammer and a screw driver. It took me one hour and a half to two hours. One thing I did like about the directions was that it put real size pictures of the screw on the second page. So if you're wondering if you're using the right one, you just match it up to the picture. Have space when setting it up. It's best to set it up in a big area then move it to the final destination because you have to keep lifting the desk and turning it so that you can screw the parts in. Overall: it's a good desk.

VERY ATTRACTIVE...
by -
 Verified purchaser
...and very sturdy. We needed a smaller desk to suit the space in my daughter's bedroom; but she needed a desk WITHOUT the pull-out computer shelf which is too low. Her laptop needed to sit at normal desk height so that her shoulders and back could be comfortable. This desk is just the perfect height and is just beautiful to look at. The instructions appear to be more difficult than they really are; just do one step at a time without trying to second-guess or question the instructions...it goes together easily if you just don't over think it. We were looking for more to do when we suddenly realized that we were done! In nailing on the back that encloses the shelves, we put the nail in too high and slightly damaged the desk top; we were devastated but it is hardly noticeable. This is a really good piece of furniture for the price.
