Beautiful, but the Devils in the Details
Jeffrey W Hess from Beavercreek, OH
First of all, the desk is beautiful and makes a nice addition to my office. However, it is made in China and has all the defects of Chinese goods. For instance:
1. It is packed in cheap Chinese cardboard containing cheap Chinese styrofoam held together with cheap Chinese tape. However, all of these came in handy as I was assembling the desk myself (the cardboard ripped off easily at the corners and the tape let go with very little encouragement). However, be prepared to clean up the styrofoam for days.
2. Assembly holes for the drawer units lined up well (the desk comes in four pieces: mid-section, two drawer units, and glass top).
3. On the other hand, the grommet hole in the glass does not match the hole in the desk!! This is a BIG problem.
4. The stainless colored strips are actually just a tape. They scratch easily. This, and the grommet holes not lining up, are my most substantial complaints.
All and all, though, my wife's (who bought it for me) initial reaction was very positive. I won't point out the flaws to her. (Just celebrated our 38th anniversary, and I've learned a few things.)
