Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it and have been watching for a sale. This desk fits my needs perfectly. I only wish the center top drawer was two instead on one deep one. But, I still love it and its a great space saver for my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Product When I purchased the Eastman Secretary desk, I had high hopes that it would suit my professional needs, but I can sincerely say that this desk has surpassed my wishes. This desk is a quality piece of furniture that will grace your home, and exceed your requirements. My only regret is that I did not purchase this desk sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect compact desk! I just love this desk. It is exactly how it is described on line. The color is perfect for our very small beach house office. Our printer fits perfectly as does all our other office supplies. I was very skeptical to spend that much for a piece of furniture on line, but I was not disappointed. It is a quality piece!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent purchase I am completely happy with this Secretary. It holds my laptop and printer comfortably. I purchased the Black finish. The Secretary looks great in my space. I am using the item myself but will not hesitate to recommend to a client.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Design it for YOU I have had the large Eastman Secretary in Belgium Oak for one month and I absolutely love it. Instead of putting a printer on the slide out tray, I have a high quality scanner. A big unexpected benefit of the secretary is the height, where the top is the perfect height when "standing". I can quickly open my mail, while standing, sort it, and immediately get it in the scanner, then place the hard copy in the normal place for my weekly task of processing my mail. When the day comes for my weekly mail maintenance I have eliminated the step of scanning it, and now I have the choice to process my mail, from hard copy OR from the scanned docs. The process is just so much easier to manage daily when I am already standing! It doesn't seem like such a major endeavor. The design of the secretary is so flexible, that I bet there are a dozen more custom ways to make your life easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large Eastman Secretary is great! The Eastman Secretary solved our problem of where to keep our wireless printer, and all our electronic devices. In addition we were able to organize all our other desk paraphanalia (pads, pens, stapler, etc). The cream color exactly matches the entertainment center we purchased previously which was important to us as they are located in the same room. Great piece of furniture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! Great looking. Great storage. And just what I wanted for my bedroom office! I was so excited to find an already assembled desk with all the features I was looking for: laptop space, printer space, filing drawer and side space for whatever! An unexpected bonus was the design of the back of the desk...covers for all the wire access holes that aren't being used. The Belgian Osk finish is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love, love, love This was my first purchase with BD. Needless to say, I was nervous about spending this amount of money on furniture I have never seen before and from a store I have never made a single purchase with. I am very pleased with the purchase experience (including delivery) and the product itself. This is a solid piece of furniture. The quality is excellent. The only downer is that our ancient printer doesn't fit in the cubby with the slide out shelf (which I love by the way). But printers are now made smaller than they were in years past. I also was pleasantly surprised to find the closing wire holes and sliding tower access in the back of the desk. This detail gives the furniture a nice look, verses having tacky open holes exposed in the back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product works well! I am extremely happy with the large eastman secretary. I was concerned that the color that I picked would not go with the rest of my furniture. Plus I had never ordered any furniture online. However, it looks great and the quality is also outstanding. I was looking for something that was not as deep as a desk and this piece works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Beautiful piece of furniture. Solidly constructed -- is exactly as pictured. Plenty of port openings (with retractable covers) and sliding back on the right lower side. More than pleased with my purchase!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is attractive, and is great for a small space Very attractive in rubbed black with greyish interior Well constructed and sturdy . The pull out shelf for the printer is a great feature. The storage space is perfect for personal papers and supplies. This works very well in our study.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great storage , perfect size, not bulky, good color, made very well. Delivery went great, this size allowed me to remove 6 other mismatched pieces I once used to store my desk items. Really dresses up the room. Love the style. I would order other furniture from Ballard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice quality and lots of storage space. We ordered the Eastman Secretary and are very happy with the quality. It sits in our kitchen where it allows access to the computer, printer, and file storage. I can cook dinner while my little one practices math facts on the computer. When placing the order be sure to ask for delivery service to open box and place desk. It was extremely difficult to manage on my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome piece of funiture! Mine arrived yesterday. Couldn't believe how well it was packed and the delivery men unpacked everything, brought in the house and took away all the packing material. The unit itself is better than expected. So well built and love the finish. The drawers slide like butter and there is a ton of room. Love the fact that when it's closed, it doesn't look like a desk at all since it's in a main area of our house. Definitely would buy from this company again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy sturdy piece of furniture This secretary has a lot of space. The bottom drawer is a file cabinet, the left and right cabinets have easy adjustable shelving. The fold down printer cabinet has a soft close hinge that slowly lowers the shelf down. I love this piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice desk Recently received my desk and am very pleased with it. Color is true to what I see on my computer - reddish/sable brown. Appears to be well made. Solid and heavy. Strongly advise measuring items you plan to store in the desk to ensure they will fit. The measurement given for the open top compartment is true for the INSIDE of the compartment, but is not reflective of the actual opening. I had to take my computer monitor off its stand in order to see the top 1.5 inches of it although based on the measurements could not have anticipated this. The actual opening is 13" high but inside past the trim it is 16.5 inches. If you have a computer tower you plan to put in one of the side compartments, be sure to allow room in your calculations for the plugs in the back. Took approximately 3.5 weeks from order to delivery. Have found customer service reps to be friendly and helpful. The delivery service was professional and prompt and arrived within promised time frame. Very happy I was able to take advantage of a discount offer and free shipping.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional Desk I ordered the old world brown which is nice but the wood is a soft pine so it will show dents and scratches more easily than a harder wood. Overall, the desk appears to be sturdy and well made.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pretty desk I ordered the Belgian Oak. Very pretty desk. Unfortunately, my husband had to adjust the magnets on the fold down desk top which is bowed a bit. It was so difficult to open. Also, the piece between the drawers and cabinets is not finished well. Given the price, I was hoping this would be a better presentation. Too expensive to return.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made and very functional I purchased this piece to hide my desktop computer and work space. I have to say it really is perfect for the job! I love having a file drawer right in the unit and my large printer fits beautifully. This piece is very well made and they have thought of all of your needs in the design. There is even a sliding door in the back for easy access to the back of your computer terminal. My only complaint is that the finish isn't what it appears in the pictures - the wood looks very natural in the photos but it is more of what we used to call a blond finish that is on the pink side. I'm not crazy about how the color looks alongside my natural wood furniture. Also it has a very strong paint smell. We have had it for a couple of weeks but my husband insists it will eventually go away. I'm glad it's still warm enough to leave the doors and windows open because the smell is quite strong.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Nice and Discreet Desk Although this is the "Large" version, it really is not large. It was smaller than I expected but we wanted something that was not too tall. It is well finished and solid, the openings for cables, etc are well done. The only request I think I'd have is for some shelves in the lower side spaces.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helped be organize my life I love this secretary. I can file in the big bottom file drawer. I can organize my life..l put my messy papers in there.. Two things would have made it even better-- lighting built into the desk part, and a few drawers in the upper areas. I'm quite happy with it.
