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.
I bought this originally to hold a book to read but I am using it for my laptop mouse to save my shoulder! This has been so thoughtfully designed. It sits firmly on your lap and doesn't slip but it isn't bulky. The little ledge that you can open to prevent your book or laptop from sliding off has rubber on it to prevent sliding and to protect any edges. It is lightweight and easy to carry around but the surface is quite firm. When it is closed flat a clip holds the top shut so it doesn't fall when the item is being carried. I am very pleased and am sure I will find many more uses for it!
My current laptop churns out quick a bit of heat and along with the laptop cooler is on the heavier side. I've had a few laptop trays before and found that for lengthy periods they lose comfort very quickly and didn't have any adjustability. This desk has been perfectly comfortable for periods on my Laptop and smaller tablet with the angle adjustability bringing the screen to a better eye-line of site. Will buy again when the time comes.
This was a "shot in the dark" Christmas gift for my husband, who had been suffering shoulder pain, which I thought may be due to his posture when reading (which he loves), and holding his book/kindle. At first he was sceptical, but is now totally won over, & has been able to stop all pain killers. He finds it comfortable, light and stable, and appreciates its adjustability. A 5 star success!
O.K. - I never read any reviews above 2 star because I figure they are inflated. This review is for people who think along those lines. For the price of $14.99 and Prime I consider this as a 'most excellent' buy. I bought it for sitting with my recliner in the leg-up inclined position. Using it right now while watching the T.V. Concerning some of the negatives reviews here, I plan on overcoming any short falls that I encounter with duct tape, and ABS glue. I stuck a few small tabs of hook & loop (Velcro) on both the lap-top lap-table, and my lap top. This solved one of the other problems mentioned in other reviews concerning slippage. This lap table will be treated with care and will serve the purpose for which it was purchased. My take? $14.99 - 5 Stars.
I am finding this laptop desk very useful. I use it whilst sitting in my armchair or in bed to view my tablet. The height of the slope is adjustable and the cushions underneath provide a very stable base, no wobbling at all. It is lightweight and folds quite flat so I can store it down the side of a chest of drawers. I was considering a tablet pillow but think this item is far more practical/versatile and easier to store. Very handy, glad I bought it.
Unfortunately, the plastic wasn't strong enough and I noticed it was broken after 5 mins of my use. I am not sure if it was broken from the beginning or broken after 5 mins of use. But my laptop is not heavy, rather opposite slim and light one. I was very disappointed with the product but the seller refunded straight away, so put 2 stars.
I get a lot of aching joints and I purchased this for when I do colouring-in. Without it, I was getting neck ache doing the colouring-in due to leaning forward too much. Since using this, I haven’t noticed my neck aching after doing my colouring.
