Linon Home Ivey Writing Desk with Drawer is rated

Nice desk but....The desk itself is nice and I would have given 5 stars if not for the drawer. The drawer is a disaster. Drawer fell apart on assembly because particle board won't hold screws. It cracked apart whenever you tried to put a screw in. Drawer bottom will not fit in slots because of misalignment of back and side rails. QVC cannot ship replacement drawer so they sent a new replacement desk. (QVC customer service was great). I took out the needed new parts, put old parts in box and have to ship back. Because of damage I'm assuming return shipping is free. Intent on making this drawer stay together, I used Gorilla glue on assembled parts and after everything was together (which took 2 hours of playing with so nothing got stripped); I then used an air brad nailer to secure sides and back. If you do use a brad nailer make sure pins are no longer than 1/2". So drawer is assembled and glue is drying before I attempt to touch it. I definitely will not put anything heavier in drawer than pencils. For the price I suppose you can't expect solid wood but it certainly could have been made better. I only went to the trouble because the desk is nice and a perfect fit for where I need it and will only get occasional use. If it's a desk that you are plan to use every day I would not recommend.

Cheap, Particle BoardWhen we attempted to assemble it, there were parts that were already cracked and broken. In order to return it you have to eat the shipping cost and also an additional $10. Never again.
