Original Home Office™ Standard Desk with Wood Top is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and even better value I purchased this desk to replace my existing home office furniture. I loved the fact that everything came assembled and once unpacked, was surprised over the wonderful quality of the product. The drawers all slide in and out with ease and the finish is pretty. I would caution folks to measure as the desk is narrower than a standard executive desk but actually works out better from a space standpoint. I would not hesitate on purchasing this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality. Great desk! We bought this for my son for the same cost as a quality kids desk that would have been half the size and he would have outgrown it in a few years. Excellent quality and love that the filing cabinets were delivered assembled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect combination of form & function. The Original Home Office grouping was the ideal choice for us. Combining form & function, with so many options to custom fit need & decor, it was the optimal solution for our home office/guest room. Not only does it look great, but it feels durable, it is beautifully made and is a good value. Highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Basic Desk I looked for a while to find the perfect desk for my home office; when I found this one I really liked being able to select the support towers to best meet my needs and not being stuck with a generic layout. Three things I would change though: 1. There is a decorative groove on the top which catches things (food crumbs, eraser crumbs, etc.), 2. The top does not have a port for electrical wires so they all have to fit between the top and the wall (this is a pain when I need to remove them for whatever reasons), & 3. There was no choice of drawer pulls (I would have preferred silver/nickel knobs to match the other furniture in the room). Everything arrived well packed. Even though one of the cartons had some damage, there was enough room around the enclosed furniture that it was not affected. The worst part about the shipping was waiting for one of the towers to arrive from a different warehouse once the other tower and top had arrived!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality and size, back side unfinished The desk top and drawers are excellent quality and the finish is beautiful. I am disappointed that the back side of the cabinets are unfinished as I did not put the desk against the wall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The desk is beautiful and Ballard's Service was great except for one thing..... The back of the cabinets are not fully finished and the screws show. They don't look very good unless faced against the wall. This was not explained in the catalog description. I plan to use the desk away from a wall and so the unfinished backing and the labels which are pasted to the backing will show. I haven't yet removed the labels because I'm not sure of the best way to do that without marring the surface. If I had known this, I probably would have ordered one of your other desks such as the partner's desk so that the back of the desk would look finished. Thanks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This desk was definately the easiest purchase I've ever made! Ordering my Ballard's desk was quick and easy! They were very helpful when I called with questions, and helped me step by step. The quality is great as well! I'm sure we will be using this for a long,long time!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a nice desk at a good price I am very happy with the color and look of this desk. I didn't realize that the back of the file cabinet was unfinished wood and therefore has to be placed against a wall. I think that information should have been more clear. Otherwise, I am very satisfied with the desk! I loved the flexibility of choosing your drawer design.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product has design features that no one else has This desk has worked out well for us. We ordered the file drawer and the CPU cabinet with the top. The top is very spacious but the desk is not very wide so it doesnt overpower the room and looks really nice. The look is very traditional, I wanted a more modern look but couldn't find a flexible system like this anywhere else. We have two dogs and a baby and were thrilled to find a way to get the CPU out of reach without haveing to pu it on the desk. The only reason I don't give 5 stars is the table top is really easy to shift off of the top of the cabinents a few centimeters which makes it look funny and it frequently needs to be adjusted. Other than that it is a great, well designed quality product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Medium quality, arrived damaged I was hoping for all hardwoods but it is made of a mixture of hardwood/veneers. The desktop came damaged with a large crack. I'm hoping they will let me pay the difference and get the onyx top instead of wood top this time. I'm awaiting a response on the desktop. I was sold on the flexibility and options available when ordering. You basically get to design the desk when ordering which I've never seen before.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed with the capacity of small drawers. We ordered 11 pieces of the Home Office Collection to build our home office. The pieces all fit great and look great. However, we are disappointed that the small drawers do not fully open. The file drawers are great, opening to the full length of the unit. The small drawers only pull out half way and are not as deep as the file drawer. Not sure why they designed these drawers to be less deep than the file drawers, seems to be a waste of space. Over all, we are fairly satisfied with our purchase but not 100% satisfied.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Drawer glides are of poor quality. The desk collection is nice in that you can add on pieces and have flexibility. However, some of the drawers glides are no longer working properly. Since Ballard Designs discontinued the Aged Pine finish, I'm stuck with a drawer that falls off the track every time I open it. When I put it back in, it takes numerous attempts until the glides actually hold the drawer in place. Basically, I cannot use the drawer. Obviously a big disappointment.
