    Desk I’ve always dreamed of, September 10, 2011

    I LOVE this desk (and bookshelves and file cabinet). I recently built a home office and began the search for my dream desk. I visited multiple local & on-line furniture stores. However, I fell in love with this desk the instant I saw it on Amazon.com. The only downside was that there were no credible reviews of this product anywhere and I had a lot of questions before I spent this kind of money. Thankfully the reseller and manufacturer answered my questions. Here is my list of what I like and don’t like about this product.

    PROS:
    * It’s beautiful! My wife thought I was crazy when I started designing this home office and now she’s jealous. It’s quite possibly the nicest piece of furniture we have in the house.
    * It is solid wood! Not sure what type of wood. Definitely not particle board with a vinyl veneer like a lot of the other junk out there. It’s incredibly solid and heavy. You see the stained wood grain when light shines on it. You hear the quality when you rap your knuckles against it.
    * Fit & finish is good. Drawers all fit well and work, are flush with the base and look well designed. Drawer rollers work well and are quiet. Wood stain is a very nice dark brown. The (florets?) that surround the desk appear as if they were carved out a single piece of wood (although I’m sure they’re just glued on and stained).
    * Size. I’m 6′ 2″ and I find most desks are too small or too low. This desk is 31″ tall, and you have 26″ of height and 30″ of width for your legs! This allows me to sit at my proper height and not have my legs rubbing the bottom of the desk. In addition, the desk top is enormous! More than enough space for computer, pictures, lamps, etc…
    * Modular. It comes in four major pre-assembled pieces. Two bases, the middle kick plate, and the top. Thanks to this, I was able to get it into my home office which only has a standard-size bedroom door. I can also un-assemble it if/when I move.
    * Computer friendly. Has two port holes on top of desk to allow cables to run below. This keeps your desk looking tidy and doesn’t distract from its beauty. It also has a built-in surge-protected power supply below. That way, you’ve only got one cable running from your desk to a power outlet in the wall.
    * Somewhat easy to assemble. The instructions are just three sheets of paper with just a few diagrams. However, it’s very easy to follow the instructions and includes good hardware. With the help of my wife and son we had it assembled the same day it arrived. Just have two strong and patient friends handy when you assemble it.
    * Excellent packaging. As expected, shipper was rough with the boxes and had some tears in cardboard box. However, I inspected everything before I signed for it and found everything was VERY well protected by styrofoam, foam sheets and plastic.
    * Shipped very fast. I know this isn’t always the case for everyone, but I had it within a week of ordering it.

    CONS:
    * Made in China. 🙁
    * No option for in-house delivery and assembly. It’s delivered to your house in boxes and unless you hire someone, you’ll be uncrating it, moving it and assembling it. Believe me, this is quite a task.
    * HEAVY!!! The top of the desk alone is 150 lbs (remember when I said it was solid wood?). If you’re installing it upstairs, get two young & strong guys to carry it for you. Otherwise, you’ll throw your back out.
    * The middle kick-plate that goes between the two bases didn’t line-up properly when installed. It’s designed to fit snugly around the molding at the base of the desk and flush against the two bases. However, no matter what we did, we couldn’t get one side of the kickplate to line-up flush, leaving a small gap on one side. The gap is only visible when light shines from behind the desk, so I was able to forgive this. This was the only complaint I had with the quality of the desk (and the loss of 1 star).

    OTHER:
    * It has a genuine leather writing area on the top of the desk. Very nice.
    * Top drawers are felt-lined and have cove-shaped wood trays for pens/pencils.
    * One of the bases has drawers for items and hanging files. The other base contains a single large space to house things like a computer or printer. However, the facade of both bases look exactly the same.
    * The center drawer has a flip-down face which allows you to use it as a pull-out keyboard tray if you want to. Otherwise, just use it like a regular desk drawer.
    * You can get matching bookcases and file-cabinet (which I did). Makes for an amazing looking room.

    I would have given it 5 stars if it wasn’t for that kick-plate not being flush. However, I’m extremely pleased with this desk and I feel I got everything I paid for. I’d highly recommend it.

    Coaster Double pedestal desk, October 20, 2012

    We bought two of these desks for our home office and they are nothing but absolutely beautiful. It looks fantastic in our home office matching well with the hardwood floors and it is also very functional. There is a drawer to put files, 3 pencil drawers one of which can open up as a keyboard/mouse sliding drawer. There is one more drawer for storage and a space to put desktop computer. The top of the table has a small 2ft by 1 ft leather writing area and two small stylish holes (with covers) for inserting cables and wires. My husband and I work a lot at home and we absolutely love it. The installation was not hard but tedious, took about 40 minutes each table. However, bear in mind that this table is all solid wood (the real stuff, none of that cheap laminate)and it is really really heavy. I am a fairly small person (5 ft) and my husband isn’t very big either and we had a very hard time taking it up the stairs to our study. So as long as you have some help carrying it, you are fine. So in summary these tables are more than worth the money, they are just gorgeous.

    The only reason I gave a 4 star because the shipping was a nightmare. The seller was really good, communicated with me regularly as he was frustrated with the shipping company (YRC freight) himself. It is definitely not the sellers fault as he shipped promptly as promised but YRC took our stuff to Vegas when it was supposed to ship to TN and then scheduling a delivery time which was amenable to our busy schedule was another pain. I just wanted to share my honest opinion with all other buyers of this product. Other than the shipping nightmare, I highly recommend these tables.

    Looks nice. Good build quality, but not very practical (see update), December 10, 2012

    This review is from: Coaster Fine Furniture 800800 Executive Desk with Computer Storage
    It came in two boxes, one with two pedestals about 160 lbs, one with top piece about 190 lbs. The items were packed very well. The top piece is so heavy so two able persons are necessary for lifting, plus a third person to check the alignment and adjust pedestal positions before the top piece can be set on. I initially couldn’t find some holes that are used for screws to connect the top piece and pedestals but found them after re-adjust the top piece. I was kind of puzzled as some holes were aligned for screws already.

    Here is one big design flaw. Two pedestals are connected at the back end with a kick board, but nothing connects at the front end. In other words the pedestals may not form a perfect square footprint prior to top piece set up. It was PAINFUL to hold the heavy top piece while a third person was checking the alignment crawling underneath between the two pedestals! The pedestals and/or pedestals are most likely needs to be moved a bit to get a near perfect square footprint.

    The desk looks good but not very practical. I feel kind of disappointed.
    1. The drawers are short even through the pedestals are very deep. There is a lot of unused space behind the drawers
    2. The right pedestal shows three drawers outside but actually it is one big compartment for a computer with a surge protect. There are four plugs facing inward. You need to stick your head inside to plug properly, not a big deal if the computer is not there. Otherwise you can plug with hand feel (dangerous) or you need to move the computer outside the compartment, which is not convenient with many cables connected in the back already. Some cables may not be long enough with the computer is out of the compartment so you need to disconnect them at the other ends (e.g. monitor). I consider this another design flaw.
    3. There is one big hole at inward side of each pedestal for cable passing through but not outward side. So some cables (e.g. network cable and power cable) still need to go around the desk.
    4. Not much space for files due to the computer compartment and 1.

    Update 12/13/2013: I lower the rating to 3 stars. The big con I see is the ventilation of the computer compartment. No ventilation! It get very very warm if you shut the door. I am going to move out the computer and put it somewhere near the desk. What can I do with this big compartment? It is the third design flaw not mentioned by other reviewers.
