Q & As

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 92 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by abacus filing desk disappointed that it was self assembly as it did take two people longer than an hour to set up and we have self asseblied items in the past. Disappointed with the quality purely because it was a self assembly desk. we are keeping the desk but if we had seen it in the shop before hand we perhaps would not have bought it. 18 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by desk Really good big desk. Although the veneer on my one is a little unfinished, eg it feels rough on the edges of the leg. 29 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality product Well packaged, clear instructions and a quality product. Looks great in our new home office 25 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by High quality robust desk Bought this for my older son a couple of years ago, and now bought one for my younger son. Instructions on assembly were clear, and assembly was good - all holes lined up etc. Flexibility about left / right draws is useful. 02 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality sturdy desk I bought this desk about 6 years ago and have dismantled it three times due to moves and it still comes back together and remains sturdy. Can't complain at all. 23 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stands the test of time I bought 2 of these desks 5 years ago for a student house, they are still in perfect condition and standing strong which is quite some feat given everything the students throw at them. I trawled many websites and companies but found this to be the best desk to offer both storage and workspace - a combination that seems hard to come by! Even now I can remember the assembly arguments, so clearly it wasn't the easiest item but we were all tired at the end of a flatpack weekend! Top tip is build it as close to where you want to use it as possible as manoeuvring the desk once built was a bit of a challenge - we learnt after the first one! 07 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very nice desk A very sturdy desk and very easy to put together. One tip, don't leave the sliding keyboard draw till the last moment otherwise you'll be on your back putting the screws in. 06 May 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Very disappointed by the quaility The product initially looked very good and stylish, but unfortunately after only 3 months use the veneer edging on the top front face came adrift, making the unit look very cheap. I had expected a better quality product for the money. 08 March 2015
