4.0 out of 5 stars Nice but REALLY A 46 INCH DESKTOP, July 19, 2011
By 
This review is from: Legare 48-Inch Straight Desk, Espresso (Kitchen)
The finish is nice. The box was dirty and all beat up. Thank goodness the packing tape held up and no pieces were damaged!

The assembly was pretty easy but it is NOT 48 inches wide. The desk top is only 46 inches wide. You normally expect the desktop measurements to be 1/2 to 1 inch less of the total width due to finishing, so the 1.75 inch difference probably is a lot compared to other desks. (The back panel that supports the desk structure along it's width is a hare short of 47.5 inches at its farthest curved edge, not 48x27x32 inches.)

Nevertheless, it's a nice desk. It's just not the same size as advertised. That may or not be a consideration, depending on your floorspace or what you were planning to put on the desk top.

To be fair it offers slightly more depth than wider desks, approx 24 inches deep, front to back. After hour upon hour of comparative shopping, this desk offered more than the meager average 20-22 inches deep of workspace. Almost a third of that is lost to the monitor footprint. God forbid you put a hutch on them!

You're not likely to be as disappointed at the incorrect dimensions as you are impressed how nice the desk looks and the fair amount of room you'll have to do your work.

A sound purchase.
