Bush Furniture Salinas Computer Desk : Between 3 and 4 Stars

Easy to setup, decent quality and excellent value for money.

Solid desk overall, but some poor individual parts. . Pros:* once built, this desk is very sturdy. A huge amount of desk area and a lot of storage area. * the instructions aren’t the greatest. You have to read between the lines in a few places. * the labels for the parts are not glued on well. They began slipping off during unpacking. * a few parts were not drilled correctly. My “b” part had holes that were way too wide, causing the connectors to fit very loosely. * several of the screws were of very low quality. One was so bad that it was unusable; i had to find a replacement at a hardware store.

Definitely a quality product. Took 2 of us about 2 hours to assemble. Simple yet unique, fits small spaces, i love it.

Assembly was clear but a little time consuming but no complaints here.

  • I absolutely love this desk
  • Good desk, heavy and takes quite a bit to assemble
  • Good desk for the price

Good desk, heavy and takes quite a bit to assemble. Took little better than a half a day to assemble. Looking at the box can be overwhelming. Just slowly followed the instructions and it all worked out. Better get you your own wood glue to use. They supply some but not enough to glue all the joints like you will want to do to add sturdiness. Was actually packaged really well. Looks great my daughter loves it.

I chose this model because it fits my needs. The quality isn’t super great, but it wasn’t super expensive. I give it a 4 instead of 5 because the instructions are too vague. I ended up putting things on backwards because i couldn’t tell which way they were supposed to face, and one was irreversible. If i was paying more attention i would’ve figured it out, but the booklet provided no cautions (like don’t put the panel board on backwards because the two mysterious holes line up for a bracket 18 steps later, and you can’t undo the mistake).

This item is quite sturdy and seems to be made of good quality wood. This item is quite sturdy and seems to be made of good quality wood. Its real wood so it is really tough and strong. You really can’t go wrong with the look as it is dark and simple. The there are a lot of places that you can put things however, i have to say that the assembly is a tad difficult. I assembled this by myself and there was a certain part that would not be screwed in (the door hinge for the side cubby in particular). It ended up working fine anyways though because my computer tower is too big anyways. Assembly requires a hammer and a philips screwdriver. It will be considerably easier if you have another person to help you put it together. The price is a little bit much for me, as i am using this desk at home just for personal use, however it is sturdy which is a plus.

It comes in pieces in a large, heavy box. It took my husband almost four hours to put it together, and he said it was one of the trickier pieces of furniture he’s assembled. But there was no damage to any of the pieces, we had plenty of hardware, and now that it’s assembled it is solid. I can’t get it to wiggle or shake even if i push on it. The keyboard tray glides smoothly. The drawer pull and the handle of the pc door are good quality. I have no worries about loading up the hutch with heavy books. My cats have run back and forth across the top and it hasn’t scratched yet.

It arrived even quicker than anticipated, was fairly easy to put together, & looks great in my new craft room. I wish it were a little more white like was pictured, but was a little more toward cream, with a yellowish brown tint to it. Still, it looks fine since other items in the room are varying shades of white. It has lots of storage & i love all the open compartments to store things but still be able to see quickly what you’re looking for. Very nice & sturdy, especially for the price.

I absolutely love this desk. I absolutely love this desk. I’m particularly pleased with the large storage cabinet for my cpu. My computer is a custom build and most other desks i viewed simply did not have a large enough cabinet. Desktop is nice and large and assembly was pretty straight forward. That being said, and this is why i give only four stars, the shipment arrived pretty busted up. Corner of box was in shreds and after assembly i did discover i was missing a small piece. I contacted bush industries and rec’d replacement part within days. This is a heavy carton and shipment of something this large via package delivery service will always entail some risk of damage. Pictures show there was a lot of shifting in the carton due to handling.

This desk is beautiful but it is absolutely hell to put together. My husband is a general contractor and home inspector. So he is skilled in building and fixing things yet this desk was a challenge to him. There were so many parts and pieces, it was just hellish to get together. I don’t recommend getting this unless you have someone to help you put it together.

Extremely happy with this desk. Really nice, solid and sturdy desk. Extremely happy with this product. We were expecting a tough time with assembly based on some other reviews, but my husband had the opposite experience – he said this was one of the easiest pieces of furniture he has ever assembled. Easy to follow instructions and everything lined up exactly as it should have. Great purchase and priced well for the quality.

Directions are very clear and easy to follow. Directions are very clear and easy to follow. Impressed with how nice it looks for the price. Definitely not enough wood glue in the kit. If you want it to be extra sturdy, which it will be if you use glue with the dowels, get some extra wood glue.

It took us a while to put it together but it is beautiful and all the pieces fit perfectly. I’ve tried putting things together before and there was always some parts that you’d have to force to fit, not with this. We were astounded at how well it went together.

I asked for this desk for christmas. It was delivered in november and we took the parts out of the box and stored them under our bed until after all of the christmas activity was over. The instructions are very easy to understand (with diagrams on each page and an indication as to whether the primary assembler would need an assistant). My husband put parts of it together in the living room and would bring them into the computer room before they got too big to get through the doorway. The desk is very classic looking and looks much more expensive than it is. I would definitely recommend it.

This is a nice desk for the price. It is fairly sturdy and looks good where i have it. The assembly instructions are clear. It took me 5 hours to put it together by myself. It recommends that you do not use power tools to put it together, and i’ll vouch for that, as my power screwdriver wasn’t actually powerful enough to get the screws in all the way (could very well be the batteries, but i didn’t bother replacing them to find out). There are a lot of screws involved in the assembly. The surface can scratch relatively easily, as i discovered putting the hutch on (this was the one part i wish i had someone helping me, just to avoid that). It is heavy, but i was able to move it on carpet by myself. The drawer is small, but holds stationary and stamps, which is what i wanted to put there, and the door compartment could hold a computer, but comes with a warning that you have to leave it open with a computer running because it does not have adequate ventilation.

Experienced a ton of pieces to put jointly but it was labeled on each piece and was incredibly simple to follow the instructions. I would remarkably reccomend this desk to all people.

Hubby is an all-close to handy male, an electrician by trade and previously a carpenter, and owns just about every single software known to person. Even so, placing this puppy alongside one another took us about three several hours. In the blank place on back again, i place up two magnetic white boards and a cork panel in the center, so i have a small do the job region i can personalize. It truly is major as heck, so you should not hope to set it jointly by yourself and move it all over much. (please observe, major as heck in this circumstance is due to the fact it truly is manufactured of compressed wooden particles with a veneer. Not authentic wooden as some individuals have stated.

This is by much 1 of the finest amazon purchases i have ever manufactured. It did acquire me several hrs to put this alongside one another, but i was undertaking it myself. The guidance had been easy to comply with, can take you one particular action at a time. The desk appears gorgeous and was effectively value $159. Desktop features loads of room for a huge watch (or all in one particular) with a good deal of home remaining for crafting and so on. The drawer, cpu storage region, and hutch provides a significant amount of storage room. Glad i lastly manufactured the final decision to order this desk.

Took a minimal time to place alongside one another but overall for the selling price, can not defeat it.

The desk was reasonably straightforward to assemble and feels durable. The desk was fairly quick to assemble and feels sturdy. The desk did occur with fairly a few superficial defects. Soon after assembly was completed, we seen quite a few locations scuffed, modest nicks and chips. In the end, we would have preferred that the desk was much better packaged.

Appears to be awesome, but not very good item. . I like the design and style, but the product is crap. I imagined it was wooden, but is pressed wood. Falls apart even though putting screws in. My partner experienced to acquire angle clamps to keep base alongside one another. Pre-drilled holes had been put so near to edge that it fell apart. If it was not so really hard to place it all again into box, i would have despatched it again. I would not suggestions everyone to acquire it.

    Awesome desk, but it took me literally 5 hours to put together (and i’m really good at assembling things). Be prepared for a full days project if you purchase this. There was no joke hundreds of peices.

    This arrived in 2 days(fast). One part was missing,so i called amazon,they were going to send another and let me return this–well about 1/4 was already done. They put me in touch with the bush furniture store. Yesterday around 2 pm i contacted them-today by 11 am the part was in my house. It took about 4 hours to put together,by my son-in-law who has put together a few things. He said the instructions were good to follow and everything was labeled good. The color is a light cream and it goes very well with my other furniture. It feels sturdy and looks good. I am enclosing a picture to show i have computer,printer and phone on the desk and i have plenty of room.

        Great desk- instructions for assembly are awful. Compact style with plenty of room and pretty classy. Would have given it 5+ stars but the directions are horrible and not very clear. No words just diagrams, took forever to put together even with 2 people.

      A winner with a 14 year old boy. This is particle board, so don’t expect solid hard wood, but honestly after my husband put it together it looked really great and my 14 year old just loves it. It hold his computer perfectly and is big enough for everything else that he wanted to put on it. The monitor fits perfectly on the desk, the keyboard drawer pulls out smoothly. The door that opens where he put the computer, has really nice quality hinges that are good quality. The hardware pulls on the drawer and the door is really nice and makes the desk look even better. I don’t think it will last forever, but i do think it will last through high school and will be a perfect place for him to do homework and use his computer. I really do like the way it looks now that it’s put together. It did however, take my husband all day one saturday to put together, he wasn’t happy about that. But it’s a winner with my son, so that’s all that matters.

        Good value, a sturdy unit, but takes work, organization and patience to put together unless you are a professional handyperson. . This took me several hours to put together over three days, using the most basic tools including manual, not power, old fashioned screw drivers. If you have a power screwdriver it will go a lot quicker. The assembly directions are clearly laid out, step-by-step, although a magnifying glass was needed here and there to clearly see the positioning of the metal runs that the drawers slide in and out on. Concentration on what you are doing and organization are key here, though. There are many, many steps that should be done in the order of the instructions, and it’s very easy to lose the small screws and other tiny parts if you are working on a carpet, for example, even if it’s a light colored carpet. This is cheap, “fake” ikea-type furniture. The black backing for the upper bookcase part is black cardboard, not even pressboard. That said, the wood parts that make up the vast majority of the assembly are sturdy and quality enough. It looks very good when assembled, and appears sturdy enough.

      It took 10 manhours to put this together. I took 5 hours for 2 employees to put this together, for a total of 10 manhours. Just be prepared for a long installation. If you enjoy putting a hobby kit together, this one is good. But if you think you are saving money, add the 10 manhours to compare values.

    Arrived on time, no missing parts or damage. Husband helped me put it together and that process was lengthy though. Unfortunately, my computer tower is just a wee bit to high to allow the small drawer to be put in place. Only problem i had was with the strip that runs along the top. Once i glued the wooden pegs in place i couldn’t get it to fit properly. No big deal as this does not take away from the desk itself. Desk top is large enough to hold two monitors no problem and with plenty of room behind them.
