Affordable, simple, fit for purpose
The IKEA Micke desk has been perfect for lockdown life in an apartment, as it doesn't take up much space, has a convenient drawer built in to store stationary and a cable hole to keep things tidy. I have the white desk which has the clean design lines we have all come to expect from an IKEA product.
Given it cost a mere $69, it is hard to find any complaints at all.
Purchased in March 2020 at IKEA VIC, Richmond for $69.00.
Garbage, poor quality, missing bolts
I purchased this desk on 24 Aus 18 at Tempe. Was missing half bolts so could not assemble. Pre drilled holes poor so split when assembling. Got 70% assembled then run out of bolts/screws so could not assemble. Emailed IKEA, less than helpful. Wanted me to pull apart, return and they would decide if would give me refund or bolts. Add the 2 hours of driving and assembly then the same for a return, 4 hours for nothing Would not even give me bolts. Will chop up, dump in their car park. 100% waste of money. Would never buy an ikea flat pack again.
HIGH QUALITY, STYLE & FUNCTION AT A GREAT PRICE
I bought four Micke items from IKEA at Tempe: the small desk for a bedroom, and the larger desk with storage cabinet plus the four-draw cabinet unit on casters for our study. For the larger desk, I also bought the matching shelf unit to provide more storage for speakers and other odds and ends.
All the items were in white. I was impressed by the finish. Not one panel was damaged in any way - all perfect. Despite the surprisingly low price (probably due to being made in China), it's obvious that IKEA has really spent a lot of effort designing ...
Easier than I expected
I purchased the Micke Desk and put it together with my 12 year old daughter. It took us almost 3 hours. We had a few minor interruptions but I went slow to make sure we didn't miss a step. It was easy to put together and I was impressed with the quality. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because in step 1, when I turned the screws, the finish cracked slightly. I was afraid it would happen with every screw but it was only with this step for both drawers. I like the space underneath the desk that holds a power strip or cords. I didn't notice it when shopping at the store.
