This was a good purchase. Like I always do, I shopped online for a week, read all the reviews and, completely confused (a joke) I take a look at my budget. What I can spend is usually the overriding factor in my decision to buy. Compared to the other desks I was looking at, this one was a very good price. What I knew going in 1. Its a doityourself project. 2. The quality would be decent not great, but not terrible. 3. It would get damaged in some way during transit. (Ive done a lot of "putem togethers" and it happens more often than not.) 4.The actual assembly would be a crapshoot. I was reluctant to buy at first because many, many, many, reviews focused on the difficulty of getting the darn thing together. They said the pieces werent labeled, there was only an occasional note on the instructions, but it was all drawings. That it took anywhere from 12 hours to "the better part of a day" and you needed a 2nd person and a huge space to do it all. Since I couldnt afford to spend one more penny, I ordered it. It arrived just 4 days later, and like the description said it weighed 147lbs. I unpacked it and yes, there were some scratches, mostly hidden after assembly, and one odd crease on the face of the desktop. Im not bragging here, I just want people to know you can put this together fairly easily and I need to say the warnings in the reviews were actually a big help. Knowing what to expect made it much easier. What I did 1. It only took one person (unfortunately it was me). 2. I put it together in a furnished home office, in an 8 x 6 area. 3. It took a lot of patience. I didnt rush the preparation. 4. Out of 44 pieces of wood and larger hardware, ONLY 2 WERE NOT LABELED. 5. Yes, the instructions had almost no words, but the illustrations were easy to follow. 6. Did I mention it took a lot of patience The photos and color on the website are accurate, the adjustable shelves are spaced well. The only thing Im very displeased with is the fact I didnt realize there was on
