It did take a very long time to put together but i do think now that it is finished that it is well made and sturdy. My only dislike is that it has cabinets on the bottom not file drawers like I had been thinking. Hopefully we can now find a file cabinet to match.
The assembly instructions were ok the quality is pretty crappy. The one draw the screw went through the particle board, the keyboard tray is shaky. This is replacing one that I had for 12 years, i will be lucky if this lasts 12 months.
I work from home and wanted something sturdy with lots of room for files. I use a laptop and wanted something without the center drawer so I could position myself higher in my chair so as not to end up with the arm/shoulder pain I had previously. This desk works great. When I received the desk, there was one part that had a big chip out of it, but as luck would have it, it is hidden once put together. This desk is very sturdy, not that hard to put together (I did most of it myself but needed help getting the top lined up), and seems like it will last forever.
This desk was exactly what we needed for a small space. The delivery brought them to our space--no loading dock logistics. The assembly was fairly painless and faster than expected. Be sure to have a good screwdriver and at least one helper. We ordered two desks and one of the small electrical caps was broken. I called the customer service number and had the part the following business day. Overall a good experience and a decent product.
This is a well designed, conventient piece for an office. I really like the four cross shelves. Holds printer paper, envelopes, stapler, hole punch, and other items that you need quickly in an organized manner.
I bought this because it was exactly what I was looking for. An open shelf for the speaker bar and glass doors for the DVR, DVD player and any other component with a remote. It looks nice but it's not strudy. They say it's made from wood and technically, it is. But, it's MDF and mine has already broken (and I've had it less than a year). The whole thing swivels on the base (which I love), but the "skirt" around the base collapsed. Since it was made from MDF, we made sure not to drag it, but apparently we did. Anyway, it's very nice looking and if you don't ever plan to move it, then it's probably fine. I just think the price is kind of high for something made of MDF.
The desk looks great! Took 4 busy hours to assemble. After 20 pages of instruction and 30 bags of nuts and bolts we completed the construction. My friend did it for me I encouraged her as we progressed in putting all the bits and pieces together. The desk is beautiful and of good quality just pains taking to assemble.
We are a small nonprofit so budget and quality are important. We really like this piece of furniture. The compartments have many uses and we love the lateral file. We also got the hutch for it and its a nice piece keeping lots of items organized. Solid furniture!
We were looking for home office furniture and we found this online and at a great price through ATG!
The product is great - all the parts were there, instructions were easy to follow, and the furniture looks really nice assembled. Everything fit together just fine. This is great for a home office or a place where the use abuse will be minimal.
Also, the product arrived much sooner than predicted when first ordered. ATG was good at communicating shipping status as well.
We are using the furniture now and hope that it will have many years of use. Would recommend it if you are looking for antique what furniture that looks natural and not so much faux.
The quality of this piece is higher end of assembly-required type items, so I'm very very pleased with it. I'm glad to see some RTA items with the midcentury modern style given this look is popular again. Even better because I live in a 1950s ranch. It looks perfect in my home.
Storage is roomier than expected. All of my fine china set fit into it?!?! which i hadn't counted on so total bonus.
Assembly took an hour and change from unpacking the box to final room placement although I used a little drill instead of manual screw driver. Directions were easy / clear / no mishaps.
Ordered this t v stand on line from Bush. I received it sooner then then the estimated time. It was delivered in good shape, all the parts were there, and my son had no problems assembling it. I recommend this t v stand and give it five stars.....
This item is incredibly cheap - structurally and aesthetically. It arrived at our office beat up, with the corners/stripping peeled. Again, the material is very cheap. We previously bought L shaped desks from Office Depot and the quality is way better than these desks for about the same price. The good: easy to assemble.
This piece is perfect for a bedroom corner TV stand. Plenty sturdy enough for a 30-42" TV, either flat-screen or CRT. 4 shelves provide ample space for DVD, VCR and associated amp and tuner. The exploded diagrams and well marked and identified parts make assembly easy. I must add that there was one wooden peg missing from my parts package which I replaced quite easily by squeezing in a bundle of round wood toothpicks and cutting them off to length. The necessary wood glue is provided for assembly. The only tool I found necessary is a large philips screwdriver. The stand is the usual good Busch fit and quality.
This is an excellent bookcase. However, be aware 87 lbs in the shipping configuration require two people to lift and carry, one person with a dolly or you must slide the package, difficult.
The construction is heavy and durable, the Mexican manufacturers uses a special wood screw with knob and a special locking countersunk nut which assembles, and aligns quickly with no damaged to the wood fiber laminate boards. Easy Assembly.
Very heavy to locate in final location.
There are eight extraneous predrilled holes that must be filled with enclosed caps and capes for all the countersunk nuts.
Just received the desk a few days ago and finally had it put together. The quality of the desk and hutch seem to be good. However, the back of the hutch and the back behind the desk are black cardboard! I certainly didn't expect that and nothing was said about cardboard backs in the description. Also, you can't leave the cardboard back off. It supports the hutch. For the cost of the desk, I expected better. I am now having to purchase beadboard wood, paint it, and have it installed to the back of the desk. I don't think I would purchase this desk again knowing about the cardboard back. I rated the product instructions as almost perfect because I did not put it together myself. I had someone else do it.
It took 5 months to receive it as communication got lost that Bush would not ship it to Hawaii after I paid $300+ (extra) to have it shipped. After talking to ATG we had them ship to the west coast and have Aloha Freight Forwarders ship it to me at 1/2 the shipping cost originally quoted.
The desk finally arrived and loaded onto our truck in three boxes by a forklift. However, when we got home each box was too heavy to lift so we opened them in the garage and carried a hundred pieces upstairs separately and arranged them by box so as not to get anything mixed up. That was day one. Day two we assembled the lateral file cabinet with 23 steps of instructions. WHOEVER WROTE THE INSTRUCTION BOOK NEEDS APPLAUSE AS IT WAS VERY WELL WRITTEN. We had no trouble putting the cabinet together so had the confidence to tackle to L-Desk.
Day three started on the L-Desk. Day four finished the L-Desk. It was diffficult to read a couple of the pegs at the very end of the books 57 steps but this book was also written well. It definately takes two people several days to put it together. I laid out each step of pieces while the 2nd person screwed, pounded, glued them together. Hopefully, you have someone you work well with or it could affect a relationship.
The completed desk suite looks very good. I would recommend this desk to anyone.
