Q & As

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good basic kit Very easy to put together (in 20 mins on my own) Good quality material, looks more expensive and not too big in my small spare room, easy fits a 27" iMac 14 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really good desk I bought this desk as I wanted a basic desk to work and study at. I was very pleased with the product for the price I paid for it. I think it looks much better than equivalently priced desks which are available from other stores, and I have no doubt that it is of a better quality. There was a small chip on one side, and that is about the only fault I can find. It was easy to construct, I managed it with my partner in less than 1 hour - it was similar to a flat pack kitchen if you have ever attempted one of those. Overall, I am extremely pleased with the product and would strongly recommend it. 09 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect simple desk Was a little dubious about the desk due to the price compared to others, however it is perfect for my needs. Easily fits 2 24" monitors, mouse and keyboard. It also feels study and was easy to set up. 05 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great desk for the price Exactly as described and great desk for the price. It is a basic one but I knew that and it's what I wanted for my study. Good size - my lap top, in tray, pen pots and various other things fit easily on top. 30 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by bought two bought two of these and place them to make a three corner arrangement for home music studio.they are solid and cheap. (cheap in a good way!) 16 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Basic Dexter desk. Good sturdy basic shape desk. No drawer, however matching pieces available if needed. Quite large, bought in clearance as box damaged. Husband and son (10) assembled easily. Bought for son who wanted decent work space for homework and artwork. He is deIighted with it, slight pinky tone to colour but nothing overly feminine. Solid design. Teamed with black swivel seat and grey metallic lamp. 24 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely desk For a value product I was really impressed. I've moved into my first home and wanted a simple desk and this fit my needs perfectly. I installed this with someone else helping me and the instructions were straightforward, and it doesn't look like a cheap desk. I've since ordered the bookcase and hope to get the rest of the set to complete my study. 09 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Surprisingly good value This desk has a simple but strong construction coupled with a good design. The material seems to be melamine bonded to particle board rather than MDF. However, it is still good value and warrants 5 stars. 13 February 2015
