I have to say that I am to flat pack furniture as Julian Clarey is to the SAS. However it came as a great relief when I opened this to find out that:
Every piece had a sticky number to identify it.
Every type of screw was individually packaged with a letter on each bag to identify them.
The wood pieces are white on the side that faces to the floor.
The keyboard shelf runners come pre-assembled and only require screwing to the shelf.
It came well packed but is quite heavy although only one person is required to move the box and assemble it. It took me about an hour from start to finish. It comes with an allen key for most of the bolts but you do need a small and medium cross head screwdriver and a pair of pliers would be handy when assembling the printer shelf posts. The instructions are idiot proof as proved by my ability to follow them and get a desk that looks very much like the picture. One person can do this easily, there is nothing too tricky that requires a third arm or you to hire a contortionist (take note Ikea).
Quality wise it is good for the money, the keyboard shelf slides in and out and the vinyl laminate covering appears to be robust enough. The grey tube side pieces are covered in protective foam when they are unpacked and are also pre-assembled. All in all I can recommend this unit.
UPDATE: After a couple of months daily use of this unit there is no sign of wear and the keyboard shelf still slides in and out without any issue.
