Easiest piece of furniture I have ever put together!
Easiest piece of furniture I have ever put together! enough room on the slide out for the mouse and keyboard. Nice little pencil drawer. Plenty of room on top for my all-in-one computer and a writing area. It is very heavy in the box and needed to go upstairs...so...I took all the pieces out of the box and assembled ends and drawers and hardware in everything on the dining table, then took the sections upstairs. Put the modesty panel onto the end pieces, put the top on and added the center piece with the drawer glides already in place. Stood it up and put the drawers in it. Slid it against the wall and set up the computer. Every thing fit exactly as it was supposed to. Now tomorrow I get to put the second one together for the sewing room!

Assembly is fairly easy. Pros
Assembly is fairly easy.
1. It looks good and there are other furniture in the same model line of products
2. Keyboard can be hidden via the sliding tray and looks like a drawer when closed.
1. The back brace / board does not provide enough support
2. Slightest move sideways causes the anchor bolts to rip out of the particle board
3. No angle brackets that would stabilize the the back. It's really wimpy.
4. design needs to be finished by the end consumer, if you want it to be stable and not fall apart.
Other than the above, it is functional, but not a good design in terms of stability. It needs to be handled very careful when moving it from one place to another. Best is to use two people anyway, since it is rather heavy for on person.

Love my new desk!
I needed something simple and that would match my cabinets in my art studio and wouldn't break the bank so I got this desk. My husband and I put it together in 20 min. It is a nice desk for the price. I was expecting flimsy by some of the reviews but it is actually nice and sturdy. For the price you can't beat it. I recommend this desk. It looks great, is easy to put together and is sturdy. I have my monitor and printer on it with a label maker and there is still plenty of space on top. I liked that it had the key board draw and a side draw which is all I really needed. So Yes great desk.

Love this desk. Very easy to put together, and didn't take long at all. Great quality for the price. We use this in our kitchen for the computer, perfect size for that.

Fell Apart After Less Than A Year....
...of use by a little, old lady. My initial review of this desk was that I loved it. However, here we are less than a year later and, as I sat here typing earlier today, the tray holding the keyboard fell onto my lap because the piece that held the runner on the right side broke. I'm a 70 year old woman and the only one who uses this computer, so it isn't as though there has been anyone around to abuse it or put too much pressure on it. I bought it less than a year ago and now, as far as I'm concerned, it's garbage. It's too bad; it fit my decor so well and I sure did enjoy it while it lasted.

this is pretty good desk
I have to say, I was a bit skeptical, considering the negative reviews. But, after the 2 hour installation time, this is pretty good desk. The downside is that, it can, and should only be placed against a wall. I truly believe that, if the manufacture completed the desk, meaning no part was left exposed, this would be an awesome desk! Would I recommend this desk, absolutely,but I also understand that, not all the desks are created equal.

Very nice desk!
Love it. My husband got this same desk as a Christmas present and we both liked it so much I bought one too. But there was a crease in the wood on the desk top piece, which earned a -1 star, and it gets dings in it super easy, so there went another star. Easy fix though = black Sharpie, go over the dings and scratches, then wipe with a paper towel. Voila, scratches gone and you can’t tell they were ever there.

I bought this for my home office and love the desk. Make sure to read the description carefully because there are two models of this desk--one with two drawers (large and small), and one with a pull-out keyboard tray and a small drawer.
I ordered the desk in Jamocha Wood and love the color. It is very dark with deep brown tones.
I also purchased the shoal creek lateral file in Jamocha Wood from somewhere else. They do look great together but the desk is slightly smaller and not as wide so they don't line up exactly as I'd like.
My only complaint is that the finish has rubbed of on the edge of the desk where I work the most. It doesn't bother me that much but if it gets worse, I might try to touch it up with a furniture pen.
If you need a desk for your home that only needs to last for a few years, I would recommend this desk. It is indeed particle board but it is a quality desk for the price, and it doesn't look cheap.
On a side note, when the lateral file cabinet came (which again, was not ordered through AlumiGogo), the bottom of the drawer had a big crack in it. I contacted Sauder via email and they sent me a replacement part at no cost to me in just a few days.

... well as the matching file cabinet and am very pleased with both
I ordered this desk as well as the matching file cabinet and am very pleased with both. They do take awhile to put together but I was able to get them both completed while being pregnant so I don't think it's anything to difficult. I read a lot of reviews before purchasing and in my opinion the quality is appropriate for the price that you pay. This is definitely not life long furniture but it's quite study and looks nice. I was sent one incorrect piece for the desk drawer so i contacted the seller and they quickly ordered the correct piece and sent it to me. I was very pleased with the customer service, originally I was afraid I'd have to take the whole desk apart and send it back but to my surprise they were able to send me the correct piece.

Quality product w/slight concern on hinges
Really happy with the quality of this desk. It was relatively easy to assemble, with very detailed and easy to follow directions. A couple of the larger parts were not labeled, but easy to differentiate. The only potential negative I see is the hinges on the fold down drawer front (qty 2, cabinet style) on the keyboard tray. I'm concerned that long term resting of forearms on this drawer front when folded down could damage the hinges (you can feel them flex under the load). It would be nice if the drawer had a more rugged piano hinge along the whole length with lanyards to stop the bend appropriately.
