CONS

Assembling this together may take some time simply because of the weight and you may need some assistance as well. However, because the holes are pre-drilled, the assembly won’t be too hard.  If you are looking for something on the smaller side, here’s another compact desk by Sauder

The desk is a little small compared to other desk, but this shouldn’t be a problem if you have little room to spare. On the other side, it’ll make your room larger since the desk won’t dwarf any other furniture in the room to begin with.

The desk also looks darker in person than it does in photographs.

VERDICT

FINAL COMPARISON

The Sauder Graham Hill Desk, Autumn Maple Finish has an even more  expensive counterpart from the same company. The Sauder Edge Water Computer Desk and Hutch Set in Estate Black has a lot more storage, more height, and more space to work on.

There is also another desk and hutch set that you might also like, the Home Styles 5522-162 Country Comfort Student Desk and Hutch, Aged Bourbon Finish. This latter one still has a more expensive price tag but almost has the same features as the Sauder Graham Hill Desk.

However, the Home Styles does not feature bottom drawers, which give you more leg room, and opted to place drawers on the bottom of the desk surface instead.

Depending on the look of your home and the overall look you are looking for in a desk, if you want a contemporary furniture then the Sauder Graham Hill Desk is an inexpensive but attractive-looking option.

If you want to look more rustic and more traditional, you can go for more expensive desks made of solid wood, but it does give a lot of weight.
