looks ok, but thats it...

Looks great, function and quality of materials severely lacking. I get it that this isn't an expensive desk, but maybe my expectations were too high... I was pretty stoked to get this desk, it took my local Sharelle dealer 5 months to get it in for me. The desk really looks great, its size and proportions are awesome, clean and stated. That's where the fun ends. The desk claims to have a 'keyboard' tray. Its a drawer... that will work if you place a keyboard in it for storage (bluetooth keyboard for a mac?). However, if you plan on pulling the tray out to type on it, you cannot. The front of the keyboard drawer does not fold down! There are no holes to pass wires from the keyboard tray to the back of the desk, have fun drilling your new desk. The drawer bottoms are a very flimsy veneer. The drawers are not soft / self closing. The glass top is very thin, 1/8th of an inch thick. It is poorly cut and does not fit the desk perfectly, 1/16 - 1/8th inch over lay in some spots. The glass towards the ends is not flat against the desk surface, as the 'wings' are not perfectly level with the center section. The espresso finish is black, and poorly finished at that, if you look close the finish is not consistent on the drawers and sides. The quality of materials are pretty poor, maybe this is in line for this price point. This reminds me of a piece of furniture you would find at Ashley. Looks good, but ends there...
Pros:size, looks and design.
Cons:cheap materials, poor finish, cheap drawer construction. Ill fitting glass. Keyboard drawer front does not fold down rendering it pretty much useless. No wire pass through from tray to back of desk. Poor inconsistent finish. Espresso color is essentially black. glass does not lay flat. sliver panels are stickers that scratch very easily. glass is very thin, only 1/8th of an inch.
I would recommend this item to a friend.
I love this desk.

It fits my office like a glove. It gives it a very modern feel. Ironically this is the same desk that is feature in the classic gangster movie scarface. It is featured in the end scene in his home right before he dies. Just a little nostalgia.
Pros:Huge! Classy !
Cons:top glass get dirty easy. but is easy to clean so not treally a con.
