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 love the design and comfort of this product--it was exactly what I was looking for! Unfortunately, within three weeks of being delivered, it has started to fall apart. I heard a loud crack while I was working one day and was pleased that the surface seemed undamaged, but later in the day noticed that the horizontal panels were splitting apart. They are difficult to force back together, so there's no way I could repair it myself without clamps. Really disappointed!
The bamboo on this thing isn't sealed or built properly and it SPLIT OPEN within a few days of owning it by itself. This thing cannot handle any heat (such as from a laptop) or moisture (such as from food) so it's pretty useless. It is comfortable and the perfect size and I really liked it until the wood just started coming apart!!
I love the size, style, cushion, etc. The problem is that in my dry climate the bamboo is falling apart. The top is curved severely and it's all cracking and coming apart on the top. I would blame my environment but I have another one from a few years ago and it's never had a single issue. I think the manufacturing of this was cheap.
My husband is a high school teacher and loves to do his marking away from his "desk" (aka, our dining room table!) so this lap desk, a recent birthday present, has given him a lot more flexibility and it's much more comfortable than using a binder! We've had a few less expensive ones in the past but they have had a smaller surface and tend to look less-than-pristine very quickly, leading to replacement sooner than desired. I was hesitant to make the purchase, largely due to the price, but I don't have a single regret as I am confident that we will get many years out of this model.
Good quality and does what i need it too for the price point. Things i wish were different: wish it was wider to allow 15” laptop and mouse pad on the surface. And the cushion on the bottom is not sturdy enough to account for weight of laptop on it. It tips backwards. I’m consistently having to push on the front it to even it out. The cushion has foam like beads inside. They don’t keep it level very well.
