Rated 4 out of 5 by BeverleyC7 Good stylish desk and drawer unit.
Really good quality desk as you would expect from John Lewis. Only down side would be the drawer storage unit would have been better with more than one drawer as storage is limited unless you have folders in the large drawer. One big drawer isn't as useful as a couple of smaller ones. Apart from that lovely furniture.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BB087 Good product eventually
The first one was missing parts and once part-assembled I realised the instructions were not consistent with the parts that I had so it was returned. The second one required me to use my DIY skills as again the instructions did not exactly match the product but it is not bad once assembled

Rated 3 out of 5 by Wendy565 Beware of limitations
While I accept this product is from a 'budget range', you would expect it to at least be fit for purpose. Firstly, the instructions for assembly do not resemble the product - the drawer is a completely different design, leading to much unnecessary confusion! Quite a few of the holes were not pre-drilled to give you a sporting chance of getting the screws in without first having a warm-up in the gym. Some holes that were pre-drilled were of poor quality and did not fit the screws properly, e.g. camlocks.
Also...the drawer is not actually big enough to hold A4 suspension files - which is what it was designed for!
If these problems could be ironed out, it would be an attractive, useful addition to the office, especially when purchased with matching desk.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Beca Nice-looking product BUT...
This product has a really nice design when assembled. HOWEVER: John Lewis, have you changed the design and not the instructions?! The parts did not match up to the ones on the assembly sheet. There were parts missing. All of the parts were wrongly labelled. The holes for the screws were in the wrong place. There were no guide holes for the screws on the runners... I am pretty good at D.I.Y and managed to assemble it (in 4 hours instead of the recommended 45 minutes), but I'm guessing others might have given up. Even now that it is fully assembled, the drawer does not glide out smoothly but seems to be catching and scraping the interior. As a company of good customer service, I would expect that John Lewis could collect this item and send me another fully assembled and free of charge. I am disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Effie10 Will be useful when finished assembling it!
I assembled the Dexter desk and bookcases by following the very comprehensive pictorial instructions so didn't anticipate any difficulty with the cabinet. It said partial assembly required but it really is complete self assembly and the drawer proved beyond me as there are no holes pre-drilled for the runners on top and bottom. I've already fed this back to my local JL store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by micky33 Great value desk!
Although this is a budget range desk, it is very sturdy and looks really good. It is easily assembled and would say, don't get fooled by the price of this desk, it is exceptional value for what you get.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nipperju Did anyone measure the width?
DO NOT BUY THIS! The smallest folders available are too wide for this filing cabinet. A piece of A4 barely fits between the hanging bars. I can't believe John Lewis sell this. It's not fit for purpose.
