Sauder Edge Water Executive Desk : Beautiful Desk!!

Finished setting this bad boy up and am loving it so far. The packaging was well done and the product came out looking new and no marks or scratches. It did take quite some time to put it together though, but worth it in my opinion. There’s plenty of room and it feels very solid considering it’s cheap materials. I’m a software engineer and will surely be getting some good use out of the desk. My only complaint so far is that both sides offer a file cabinet drawer instead of one having a computer compartment. I’ll be sure to get some pictures up and update my review in a few months if all is still well.

I wanted a solid wood desk and it just doesn’t feel like it. Some of the screws pulled out/stripped and i don’t think the quality would last more than 3-4 years.

If you want to feel like the executor of your home than sit at this bad boy awhile. There is enough space to have your laptop, any writing materials and stacks of other papers on top the desk and even a lamp and or printer. The wood is high quality considering it is composite. The drawers are easy pull in and out and sometimes get like an air-suction to them which i kinda like because they don’t just open for no reason like other desks i have had in the past. There are two big file drawers and 2 random drawers and then of course the fold out part for a keyboard or random secretarial’s. I had to get super organized so i also bought the sauder matching double file cabinet. It is deep too and you can file either way and set your pretty’s on top for an elegant looking office.

Beautiful and great quality. Easy to follow instructions. Allow a few hours to put together though. I get compliments all the time when people see it.

  • Great Desk, Great Price, Great Looking
  • A perfect DIY experience!
  • Great Looking Desk at a Good Price But Not Perfect

Sauder Edge Water Executive Desk, Estate Black Finish

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Large drawer/shelf with metal runners and safety stops features flip-down panel for keyboard/mouse.
  • Two file drawers with full extension slides hold letter-size hanging files.
  • Two small drawers with metal runners and safety stops.
  • Desk top has grommet hole for electrical cord access.
  • Quick and easy assembly with patented T-lock drawer system.

Great desk for the price range. I’m very pleased with this desk. It’s great for the price range, size, and color in which i was looking. I read a lot of the reviews for this desk and several others. There are almost always some bad experiences and ratings for anything one may purchase. Regardless of the few bad reviews, i decided on this desk and hoped it would be as good as reflected in the positive reviews. I put it together myself in about 4 hours. The directions were very easy to follow. It does require 2 people to flip it over once you’ve put it together.

This desk is beautiful when it was finally assembled. It is very sturdy, quite large. Larger than expected which is a great thing for us. Has a lot of desk space and the design gives it a crate and barrel/pottery barn look to the desk. It is definitely much better quality compared to an ikea hemnes desk we’ve been looking at. The price is even better compared to getting an ikea desk. We love the drawers and the keyboard tray which hides as a drawer too. The assembly was harder than expected.

Sturdy and solid once assembled. Takes some time to put together, but the directions are clear and concise. Besides, you don’t want a desk that take 10 minutes and is made of balsa wood. Meets my exact needs as i wanted a large work space to use.

I recently took a work from home underwriting job so i needed a desk that provided enough room for two large monitors, a docking station for my laptop, and still enough room to spread out documents to review and this desk is perfect. Luckily my laptop is small enough that my docking station and laptop fit perfectly and conveniently in the keyboard tray so thats not even visible to the eye. I prefer to havd my keyboard above. It seems very sturdy and it is very sharp looking. Unfortunately if i ever move i will not be able to get it out of my downstairs office in one piece, i will have to take it apart. I put it together myself, instructions were clear. I was misding some screws, but luckily there were other extras that were included so i made them work.

Very happy with sauder edge water desk. The desk very definitely has met our expectations. It is very well built and is a beautiful addition to our office.

This desk was fairly easy to set-up. This desk was fairly easy to set-up. I love it, the only problem i had was the slide out drawer on top and in the middle. It does not go in all the way, it sticks out about 4 inches, it seems to be getting stuck on something. I have tried and tried, removed the screws, switch the sliding tracs but still cannot get it to go in all the way. Any help from others who have built one, please let me know what or how to get this in properly.

Nice desk but requires some effort to assemble. It’s a nice looking desk after you put it together. But be prepared for a lot of parts and follow the directions closely. As i always do with ready to assemble furniture, i glue the parts together as i go as it adds additional strength. The assembly took me about 1. The fit and finish of the parts were very good. My only complaint with sauder’s furniture is that it looks like it pretty much comes off the assembly line and into a box, so everything is covered with a fine layer of sawdust. I also don’t appreciate that they use 8 different types and sizes of screws on this desk and put them all in the same bag, sorting them before you start is highly recommended. And keep in mind that the box (and the desk after it’s assembled) weigh close to 200lbs.

Great looking desk at a good price but not perfect. For the price, this desk is pretty hard to beat, but it isn’t perfect. Finished product: once assembled after around 4 hours, the desk looks great, even fantastic, sitting in my home office. I ordered the black one, but when enough light hits it, i’d almost call it an “espresso dark brown”, as you can see some underlying streaks like paintbrush marks that are lighter brown in color. They actually make the desk look more realistic, and a lot nicer than if it were simply solid black. The down side is that because it so dark, and has a fairly shiny finish, it shows every fingerprint and speck of dust, so plan on cleaning it – a lot. The finish is also easy to scratch if there is anything remotely abrasive on it. In one day, the base of my monitor stand has already made some small scratches in the top from only minor movements. Scratches show up as a much lighter color than the finish, which makes them doubly visible.

Arrived with blemish but otherwise perfect piece. It’s a beast to put together but i’m slow and pregnant and still only took me 3-3. 5 hours of mostly solo work. It’s a great deal for the price. It did come with a little bit of a blemish on the front center piece but it’s not too too noticeable so i went ahead and put it together anyways. We’ve had issues with sauder things arriving broken before and the customer service is quick and nice we just needed this desk like now so we didn’t worry about it. Great modest executive desk.

Luckily i have my dad ther to do it for me but took him literally 2 hours and he is usually quick with stuff like this. Extremely hard to put together. Luckily i have my dad ther to do it for me but took him literally 2 hours and he is usually quick with stuff like this.It looks great in my new office tho and its a nice heavyduty piece. Color is exactly as it appears in photo.

This is a beautiful, sturdy desk and is large enough to comfortably situate two monitors. The color is really nice but still neutral enough to blend with anything you already have in the room. It arrived quickly, less than a week, with absolutely no damage or missing parts. The directions for assembly were pretty involved and this took a long time to put together (4 hours but with some kid distractions), but it was straightforward, it was just a matter of plugging away at it. I’m very happy with the purchase.

I built a sauder stereo cabinet about 25 years ago. Not a bad product, just a bit flimsy. I wanted to save a little money for my new desk in my therapy office. At 62, probably won’t be building many desks again. Can i just give a standing ovation to the designers, builders, packaging people?. Was it just my desk that came perfectly packaged?. A sold package within a package protected this thing on a cross country trip. I was so impressed at how professionally the packaging was designed.

Pretty easy to assemble and after finished it is a durable, very well-made piece of furnishings that you would think charge a good deal much more than it did. The desktop has lots of place and the drawers hold a great deal of files. The keyboard tray can be used as an added drawer if most popular.

I’ve had it for about 6 months now and could not be happier. . It took awhile to set with each other but after it was finished it is well worth every single penny. I get the job done from home and needed additional area to distribute out my do the job and healthy my big watch / tv. This desk is the sturdiest i have at any time experienced. No particle board and no shortcuts / affordable type development products this is the real deal. If you’re not a man or woman which is helpful with equipment, i would recommend to get someone to assistance. I’ve had it for about six months now and couldn’t be happier.

Desk is wonderful, assembly is a nightmare. Ok, so the desk is great overall. It truly is not the ideal desk out there, but it is very good adequate for most household use. It’s durable and for the rate a fantastic offer. However, it genuinely is a time suck if you assemble it by yourself. And as anticipated with this kind of point, the organization despatched the mistaken nails for a person of the ways (there are like 24 ways to this and they just about every choose like a half hour at minimum to do or more). There are so lots of areas, it is virtually overwhelming. You would imagine they’d assemble a couple of things for you to make it less difficult. Also, a energy drill that can screw nails in is nearly a requirement. If not, your hand will fall off from all the turning.

I acquired the desk alongside with the matching bookcase. Both equally are extremely pleasant wanting and very good high-quality for the selling price. It took a whilst to put them collectively but in general very content. Originally, when i opened up the box for the desk, the best was broken absolutely in fifty percent. The maker shipped out a replacement with out questions or any expense to me, but mainly because of the sizing, it took an additional 7 business enterprise days to lastly get the alternative. When all is said and performed i assume this is a charming desk and sufficient house to do my work. I have an at residence small business and i am satisfied with the purchase.

Remaining a taller person, i may take away the keyboard tray as it does rub on my legs a bit with my latest chair. Other than that it’s quite properly constructed and appears good. five hours to develop begin to finish.

We acquired this desk for our new dwelling. It seems to be just like the photograph. The wooden appears to be like gorgeous and the grain is so quite.The drawers function excellent and the design and style is finished nicely. It was very a venture putting it jointly but we knew that likely into it. The principal factor was that all of the essential parts and pieces had been there for the assembly. I would really suggest this desk. I would enjoy to acquire a tiny sized submitting cabinet to match this desk but the just one detailed with this desk is a large substantial for our place.

      The good news is it looks great once assembled. The problem was it was a lot of little pieces and it is particle board. It took a few hours to assemble.

        The directions were clear, just tedious. The directions told you to stop and take a break to grab a snack. This is not real wood, it is particle board. That said, it’s a beautiful, sturdy and well built desk. Color i chose was salt oak and purchased for $352.

    The desk looks really nice all built but its poor quality. The desk looks really nice all built but its poor quality. Once its all built it seems quite sturdy except for the leg posts. The desk was literally falling apart when i was building it due to the very cheap build of the pressed wood. (i have put together a lot of furniture over the years, especially recently and this was poorly made) the directions were a bit of a pain and could have been a lot better. I spent a lot of time analyzing the directions. Knowing what i know now i would have been much more careful and delicate with the build of it. The little leg posts don’t screw in very well and were loose so i had to us a glue gun to hold a lot of things in place. The wood was splitting in spots. Over priced for the quality. Fortunately i have wood floors and put pads on the legs which made it easier to move into place in the office. However if you have carpet and move this desk, the leg posts will most likely collapse and split. Have someone help you move it cause it is heavy, which i do like so its not flimsy.

    Interesting system that holds it together and could be confusing for some, but it is extremely sturdy for a piece of build it yourself furniture. All metal drawer runners that operate very smoothly. Looks good, but the finish is a little thin and damages easily. Not a big issue for me because it’s just a desk for my home office and function is more important to me. I do a lot of work on computers and electronics so i expect scratches. The particle board that it’s made out of is very dense and of higher quality than average.
