Cheap, decent desk but a few QC issues
Reviewed in the United States on July 14, 2020
Once assembled, the desk is actually pretty decent. It’s cheap but it gets the job done and it’s sturdy enough and the little pouch to put your books and papers is convenient.
My biggest issue was the assembly. The instructions are easy to follow and this would’ve been an easy assembly if it weren’t for QC issues.
One of the bars that the legs attach to on the bottom of the desk had poorly drilled holes where the screws go in. The metal was raised, which meant the screw couldn’t go in deep enough to catch on to the threads and screw in. I had to take a hammer and bang on it to flatten the metal so that the screw could go in.
Next, the little pouch thing that goes on the side has misaligned holes where the screws go it. When I screwed one side in, the other hole was slightly too far to the right. I had to widen the hole with scissors.
On the matter of principle, I think it’s necessary to dock points off. It’s one thing to maybe need to use your own screwdriver to assemble a piece of furniture, but if I have all the tools and parts and instructions in front and I can’t assemble the desk because it was poorly manufactured, then that’s on them.
