Rated 2 out of 5 by Ulka73 Drill holes in the wrong place
Bit disappointed with this. Two of the drill holes were out by 1cm so I had to drill new ones. Then, unlike one of the other reviewers, rather than the sliding element being too loose, it was much too stiff. So I've had to screw in some handles to allow my daughter to pull the desk out when she needs to. So, have cobbled together a desk with a bit of improvisation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Terri38 Does the job perfectly
We bought this for my daughter's bedroom several months ago and I have to say it looks great, is very solid, and is a quality piece of furniture which I expect to last well throughout her teenage years. We haven't experienced any problems with it at all and I'm glad I spent the money on this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Phillip49 IT'S LIKE TYPING AT SEA IN A STORM! DON'T BUY THIS!
I bought this Last Summer (2013) ...I'm a skilled carpenter & people used to pay me to build their self-assembly furniture, so there was nothing wrong with the way I assembled it ! I write every day by hand and on my lap top, and hope to do it for a living full time soon enough, so I need a Good Desk, i.e. NOT THIS ONE!!! It rocks repeatedly from left to right and back again............. I've tightened all the joints, but this has not solved the problem. The large, Flat work surface is a good size. Pity that it keeps sliding back to half-size several times an hour, thus knocking most of my stuff onto the floor; I've broken the glass face of my watch because of this, and the screen of my mobile phone, & 2 of my favourite juice glasses! I had to buy 2 black rubber door stops from my local DIY shop to stop this happening... they still slipped out occassionally... now I've blu-tacked them into place, so it only occurs occasionally, but it still does occur... This iS NOT the product I paid for! Yes, I will be phoning John Lewis to get them to take it away, and to get my money back.... I Don't expect John Lewis products to be so very badly designed!
