While the hutch offers two-sided drawers for work essentials, the separate desk features an easy-slide keyboard tray as well as a full-extension file drawer ideal for important paperwork.

I have had this desk for about 2 years now. I love the hutch and other accessories, but the desk itself is super low quality. The top part laminate starting coming off almost immediately. It looks like its been scratched around with sandpaper. It doesn't take much to pull the black paint of this one. The other accessories like the filing cabinet and hutch are great because they don't get much use thus not much wear. But, the desk is terrible. Don't buy unless you are planning on refinishing and sealing the desk yourself. Otherwise it will look like crap in 2 weeks.

I, too, have this desk and you stole the words out of my mouth. The top part is practically speckled black after a couple of weeks. I bought it for $140, so this is a good deal... I've had it for about 2 years and I am looking for a new desk just because the desk has deteriorated in quality so quickly.

I bought this for my son's room the last time it was on sale. It is particle board. The worst thing about it was putting it together. It's a serious pain in the ass. If I didn't have good mechanical aptitude, I probably never would have got the thing together. Instead, I would've burned it in effigy, then burned it for real, then buried it and waited for it to come back as a zombie desk and burned it again.

But other than that, it's a decent desk for the price.
Repped for the lolz...

Actually Im sitting at this desk right now. We bought it for 99 dollars with free shipping about a year ago. It has held up remarkably well for a laminated wood desk. I understand the desk's limitations and try to be careful with it. I even mounted a $50 led strip light under the hutch and now its my regular study desk (I actually should be studying right now). As far as assembly goes, I enjoy putting together furniture etc. Probably has something to do with the "ikea effect". It also has some good storage areas.

Bottom line: If you're looking for a nice cheap desk that you'll be careful with, this is a great price. If you're looking for a high quality desk that you expect you to last you for years, look elsewhere.

If you're getting scratches and marks in a black desk like this, a black magic marker will give you some decent results. One of my crap desks is actually a gray top with black speckles and I've used the black marker on it...hard to tell unless you look for it.

Thanks for the advice! I almost went in for one but if you've had bad experience with this particular model, I might save for something a tad more durable.

Thanks though, OP! Desks in this price range can be hard to find! Smilie

This will take a newbie a minimum of 6-10 hours to put together or you can hire a guy from office max to do it for you if your time is worth more.

this information is key. The price may be perfect but how much do you add to that cost for the value of your time to put it together

YES! I thought this might've been a repeat of that old price mistake.

That desk is still looking very good in my bedroom, but we are moving in a few months and I doubt that particle board sh*t will survive the move.
So I got really excited when i saw this, and figured that I could try to grab this again so that I could use a sledgehammer to disassemble the current one LMAO

Not true. I have moved this desk 3 times now. Leave it assembled but take it into its 3 parts Top and side and corner piece. Just pack it well and i had no damage and all the screws were in good shape and did not strip.
I plan on having this desk for a very long time
