To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
bought to replace an old laptop 'lap' tray where the filling had gone flat... when I opened it the smell almost knocked me out..the beanbag filling has an awful smell.. I know sometimes with these things you need to let it air out... well the odor, while not as strong, is still there a few days later. Just decided to keep it as a backup tray but will use the old one and look around for something better.. don't buy! it is too 'stiff' and doesnt give the comfort of the old one I have and you are better off w a piece of wood imo.
OK, what do people want to do with a lap desk? Usually put a mouse or trackpad on it.
But on this one, forget it. I put my $150 Apple Magic Trackpad on it one time, and it slipped off and smashed the glass surface, ruining it. That was an expensive accident! Can't use a mouse either because it won't stay put.
Everything else about the lap desk is good - but they need a non-slip surface instead of the super slick plastic, or it is not usable.
Right out of the package, I knew it felt cheap. Yes, I know, the price was cheap. I just couldn’t get past the flimsy plastic top and the cheap feel of the bottom cushion. Would it have worked, for a little while; sure. I know I have seen higher quality items for around the same price point. Sorry LapGear, just not a great product. Nothing spectacular. If you’re in the market for a cheap lap desk (price and feel), it should be right up your alley. If you are looking for a high quality lap desk, look elsewhere.
So this seemed great when it came, and it is sturdy on the top. But within a week of using it, the polystyrene balls inside had started to compress so the cushion part is now a lot smaller than when I got it. It'd be nice if there was a zip to open and replace them when they flatten but unfortunately not. I was pretty disappointed considering it wasn't cheap and it was the Wirecutter top pick. I would t buy it again, I'd go for one with an actual cushion underneath.
Fairly displeased. Picture is deceiving and felt it would be bigger. It's fairly small and doesn't add much height which makes you look down and strains the neck. I'd probably return it if it was worth the hassle.
