Coaster Home Furnishings Coaster Computer Desk : Just what we needed

While not the best desk you can buy, for the money this is an absolutely excellent desk. It provides a modern look and feel and was rather easy to assemble. It was shipped quickly an arrived in excellent condition. This desk doesn’t have much storage, but you will know that when purchasing and reading the specs. For the money i paid an am extremely happy with this desk.

Unless you use boxes to hold up the pieces. Used the bottom side on top to prevent scratches but decided it would scratch anyway. Looks great with led computer or any lights that shine off it. Wish that the back metal plate could be removed but great for stretching your legs on it. Also the cabinet could be better if it was adjustable. Don’t need to install if you don’t want to though. Oh and the top of the glass is longer than the legs so you can take about 3 inches off for measurements in length. The glass corners are also rounded so they’re not sharp.

This is a really cool looking table that has a modern look for any. This is a really cool looking table that has a modern look for any apple desk top products. However, the glass is fragile and you really need to be careful with whats around and on the table that might cause the glass to shatter. Otherwise i do recommend it if your looking for a modern look and feel.

It would have been nice if this 74-pound package was sent in two or three seperate boxes. The desk arrived with some damage to the box (photos were taken); however, the contents were fine. The various parts of the desk were free-floating around in the box with no wrapping on them. Up until putting the drawers together, things went fine. On the sides of the drawers (where the drawer glides were to be screwed in), the pilot holes were drilled too close to the edge. Upon putting in the tiny 12mm screws, the particle board wood fractured/spilt, leaving nothing for the screws to attach to and hold the drawer glides in place. Upon contacting amazon, it was learned replacement parts were not available. Thus, what pieces of the desk that were already put together had to be taken apart and shipped back.

  • Really needs to be shipped as separate pieces, but otherwise a great desk
  • Pay no more than $75, and you received a pretty damn good deal.
  • Assembly requires some critical thinking.

Coaster Computer Desk, Black

  • Metal frames
  • Black finish
  • Black glass top
  • 55-Inch by 23-inch by 31-inch
  • Pull-out keyboard and 2-drawer storage

Simple desk that serves it’s purpose. The desk is long enough for two monitors and a full size printer. I use this for my home office and haven’t had any trouble. The draws are week so you can’t put much in them besides paper. Overall it’s a good desk for the price.

What a wonderful modern sleek piece of furniture and looks great as well. I purchased this coaster black computer desk 3 weeks ago and received it this week. Package arrived intact, nothing broke and all pieces accounted for. It wasn’t hard at all to put together, the only thing wrong was 2 lines of the printed material instructions #8 and #9 were transposed. One part of the desk drawer frame called for #8 and should have been #9 and another part of the desk drawers called for #9 and should have been #8. After about 20 minutes trying to see that #8 didn’t fit in the drawer frame and #9 did, i just switched them. I love this desk and i’m so glad i waiting 3 months just checking different websites for price changes on this product. Amazon was the best price and i’m happy i purchased it.

Overall i really like this desk. Overall i really like this desk. The drawers and tray are particleboard, but they’re holding up fine after a little under a month. It shakes back and forth a little bit on occasion, but adding a couple of washers would probably rectify that. Overall very good, just wish the whole thing was metal/glass.

Very nice desk and you can use the drawer part separetly.

Amazing stable and stylish desk. This is the ideal stylish desk for a modern apartment. It was easy to assemble, and surprisingly big and stable. The space between the cabinet and the desk itself is good for a printer or additional storage space. The keyboard slider is a bit tight, but that might be adjustable.

It was not difficult to put together and. It was not difficult to put together and looks really nice on my office.

A little bigger than expected but overall. A little bigger than expected but overallgot the space we needed. Only issue is the desk height doesn’t accommodate a bigger chair.

Really needs to be shipped as separate pieces, but otherwise a great desk. As another review said, this item should really not be shipped in one box – all the corners were torn up, including 2 corners busted open – this caused a bag of hardware to fall out in shipping that was essential for putting together the cabinetry. I was able to assemble everything but the drawers, and it is really a sleek desk. I got a discount from amazon to keep the product and used that money to go out and buy the dowels and other hardware i needed to finish assembing the item. Pros:- sleep glass top- light, but fairly sturdy- lots of space (actually way more than i expected, was almost too big, but that’s my fault for not measuring)cons:- should not be one package- cheaper particle board for the cabinets, corners were chipped off in shipping (which also makes me think down the line this will chip through normal wear and tear)- a little overpriced (could probably get an almost-identical product from ikea)- the back “grate” is a little flimsy – don’t rest your feet on it or you’ll probably bend it.

We generally don’t like to buy a product without having seen it first hand. However, this desk is exactly what was pictured and described. Very easy assembly and easy to follow instructions. Some other reviews indicate lack of sturdiness in drawers, but we find them to be adequate for our needs. The shipment arrived sooner than we were expecting so we were very pleased with that. All in all this is a good product for our home office, we would recommend it to others.

This is definitely a really nice desk for the price and assembly isn’t that hard. This is definitely a really nice desk for the price and assembly isn’t that hard (well, at least my dad didn’t think so – i know nothing about it xd). The “handles” for the drawers are slightly weird because of how small they are, but it’s no big deal. There’s plenty of room and it’s very sturdy as well.The only reason i gave it four stars is because since the top is completely made of black glass, it scratches and gets smudged very easily, so it requires a lot of wiping it down and being careful not to drop things on it.

Desk is a good quality for a do it yourself desk. It’s pretty big and looks more expensive than it is. It did take a while to put together as directions aren’t the best but we figured it out. My son is very happy with his new desk.

Had this desk for about a year now, and i’m quite happy with it. At 55″ long, the surface provides plenty of work area, especially when you consider the keyboard tray beneath. The tray itself could stand to be about 6 inches wider to comfortably fit both the keyboard and mouse, but i manage to do ok with them uncomfortably located on it. Just the right amount of storage in drawers without becoming unnecessarily bulky. The glass surface has been sturdy and reflects light nicely. Overall, a highly functional and nice-looking desk.

Assembly requires some critical thinking. . To start off, i am a 24 year old woman. And if was able to put this desk together completely by myself. I did have to help getting the glass too on, but the assembly does not require a team as other reviews suggest. However, the assembly instructions are a little off. In my instructions, the two different can sizes were switched, but it was obvious due to the size. The top of the cabinet was labeled as the bottom, and the bottom was labeled as the top. Once again, it was obvious because of the location of the screw holes. The instructions are a little confusing, but if you look at how the desk is supposed to look when it is finished, it is not difficult to figure out. The desk itself is very sturdy and it looks very nice. It is simple, plain, and still sharp looking. It seems like it will hold up for a long time.

Superior product or service, meditate in advance of assembly although. . Seems just like the pictures & appears to be like quite superior in the area. Placing it alongside one another nevertheless, is a chore. The instructions could b made much more apparent & the spherical screw holders are mislabeled. Good products for the price while.

I bought this for my son and experienced hoped he would be equipped to assemble on possess. With my aid it was nevertheless pretty disheartening to assemble thanks to lousy package deal labeling and recommendations were quite confined. I walked away from the undertaking several occasions owing to irritation stage. Now that it is finished it is ‘okay’. I am not persuaded the drawer box will keep place, may only be able to put a several lighter things in drawers. And apart from drawer box, all appears to be very sturdy.

When all the parts had been set collectively, i have to say this is a extremely nice desk. The black glass leading definitely offers it an ultra modern seem that i was not expecting from just the picture(i was also glad that the edges turned out to be rounded as nicely). The drawers are really handy, even though just one critic that i have is that they could be slightly greater. Design was uncomplicated with two folks, and i assume it would have been even simpler if the pieces experienced labels on them right. All round i am really delighted with this purchase, and i have previously gained a lot of complements in excess of it.

Wonderful desk, simple to assemble and strong.

A great desk with quality difficulties. The desk seems to be just as advertised with a modern appearance and a good glass top. The only challenges encountered ended up the elements utilized for the attracts and confusing directions. The draws used the lowest priced particle board i have ever witnessed. They arrived cracked and splintered alongside the base exactly where the guidebook rails are to be hooked up. I experienced to glue and clamp the pieces and permit set for 24 hours. Then i ‘skinned’ the surface area with plastic wooden and re-drilled the holes. That worked, but it was some thing i really should by no means have had to do. The guidelines arrived with mis-marked parts and if i ended up a amateur setting up this kind of detail would have been confusedagain, a good desk but requires extra good quality command.

      Pay no more than $75, and you received a pretty damn good deal. . For around 75 bucks, difficult to beat. Just bear in mind that this is truly only worth about the aforementioned amount of money. Instructions aren’t especially clear, and the metal hardware for the drawers does require a little bit of upkeep (just make sure you tighten up the hardware at the front face of the drawers, lest you be disappointed that your drawer(s) is coming apart. Excellent buy for the money.

    Pull out is a bit cramped. . I love the look of this desk. However the pullout is cramped and the small area beside it is only big enough for low profile computer cases. It is heavy so catch the delivery guy to help you bring it in.

    The quality is good and not too. The quality is good and not too hard to put together. Only real gripe i had was that a few of the drawer boards came scuffed. Slight markings on them but after you put it all together you can’t notice it. After reading some of the other post about packaging i was concerned but mine came nicely packaged with very little wear on the outer box. They re-inforced the box with a hard cardboard around the perimeter. Overall very nice desk and longer than the average desk.

    I think the quality is very good and the desk looks sharp. I think the packaging must have been improved after many of the reviews written here as it was very well packaged and undamaged for me. Aside from the expected cheap particle board drawers, i think the quality is very good and the desk looks sharp. The only downside in my opinion is that the keyboard tray only fits a normal size keyboard with almost no room left for a mouse. I would also agree that it can be slightly difficult to figure out which part is which during assembly, but with a little bit of thinking and deduction it was no problem.

        Really hard to put together, but worth it. Really nice desk for the price. Putting it together was another story. There’s never been anything i can’t figure out how to assemble. Had to recruit my ex-husband to help me. That’s how frustrated i was. Took us (really him) 3 hours to put it together. If i had written a review right after it was finally together, i probably would have given the desk 2 stars. Now that a few days have passed, it is a nice looking desk. You’re going to want to get new knobs for the 2 drawers. They’re the dumbest knobs i’ve ever seen. So little they’re hard to grab. Other than that, all is good.

      This desk is great, very sturdy. I saw some comments prior to purchasing that you cannot change the location of the keyboard drawer or the right side drawers. This isn’t correct, you can change what side they are on by switching the bars and the legs around. Currently i have the keyboard and drawers on the left side of the desk. This desk is very spacious it can support my 2 monitors (27″ and 24″) easily with room for my lamp and my alarm clock. My only complaint is the instructions to put it together. Don’t get me wrong, they are ok, but they do not tell you what way to put the support bars (which is under the glass) which is why i decided to just install the drawers under my keyboard. I gave this desk 5 stars because it is sturdy, and well made.

    Fits well in my studio apartment and does the job. Been working at this desk for about a month, and it has been exactly what i need. I didn’t attach the drawers because i didn’t want it to block my wall heater–it’s nice to be cold and then suddenly have a blast of warm air at my feet. 🙂 the drawers sit on the floor under the heater–there are holes in the top for the attachments to the desk, but i fixed that by stacking books and notes on top. The keyboard drawer is a perfect height ergonomically–i have a chair with adjustable arm rests, so i make up the slope a bit too. I also have a very small apartment, so the glass makes it appear not to take up much space.

    This desk is simply beautiful. It came well packaged too; i was worried when i got it that there was a deep scratch in the box it was shipped in, but nothing inside had any damage at all. It looks great, and i needed a little bigger space on my desk as i have multiple monitors.
