Simply Bamboo Portable Folding Laptop Computer/Notebook/Tablet Desk : Great Item, but could use better finishing

Works great, but screws fell out. The wood is very nice and the tray works great. Three stars, because the screws fell out (i had it less then three days), and i had to buy new ones. Plus i glued them in so they wouldn’t fall out too. For the price i shouldn’t have had to fix it.

I don’t know what people, who give this a low rating, are doing with their trays, because i find it extremely well made, and haven’t had to touch it. I even fold up the legs, most every night, to store it and it’s still nice and tight. If you want to be able to work, in bed, or anywhere, and need a tray table that tilts, this works perfectly. Treat it well, and it will last forever.

I’m the king of person who can’t stand sitting at a desk to work. I’m much more comfortable sitting cross-legged on the floor or lying flat on my stomach. This desk it perfect for that.I can plant on the floor and this little desk bring my laptop up the perfect typing hight for typing or reading. The adjustable angle is great for reading in bed as well. As i also live in a small apartment, this desk also neatly folds up and stores easily.

The screws keeps coming loose.

I bought this years ago and i’m still using it. It fell apart after about a year and i had to gorilla glue it back together, but it’s working nicely now. Only thing that keeps it from being a 5-star for me is the weight. It’s kind of heavy and if i have to replace it, i will find something much lighter next time.

It’s so nice to take strain off the. This is a finely made lap table. The wood is smooth, indicating it was sanded sufficiently before it was finished. Some tables i’ve seen have a rough finish. It’s so nice to take strain off the neck by being able to read a book at near eye level. Mountain woods is great to deal with too. I had a minor issue to resolve, and they were great.

Great price, good quality and received almost immediately. I would definitely buy from this seller again.

A little bit of superglue made it better than new though. I bought this for my wife as a little early birthday gift in april of 2013. She still uses it and its held up well. One of the dowels that secures the legs together came out though. A little bit of superglue made it better than new though.

This is a great, sturdy tray that i use without any problems on the couch. The only thing i would change about the tray would be to make the legs a little taller – my couch is pretty soft so often the top will sink and the tray ends up resting on my thighs instead of being supported by the wooden legs.

It would be great if the legs were adjustable. So i could set it a little higher at times. And it would be great if the legs locked into place, as then, when you move it around, it wouldn’t tend towards collapsing. Other than that, it’s worth the extra bucks for the sturdiness, and the bamboo is sustainable. It’s not a piece of junk that will wind up in your trash bin in a year. Seems better than anything else i found online.

The solution for reading – or eating – in bed. Since i already have a bed table i really bought this one for use on my sofabed in the living room. Since the sofa surface is flat, and as deep as a single bed, there is plenty of room for a desk. I was down for a period of illness and wanted to be able to do some daytime work on my laptop without burning up my lap so i must have read every review for every table of this sort online. That’s how i made my decision to order it. It pleased me right from the moment i removed it from the box. The wood is smoothly finished so there is no snagging tender skin or fabrics. It has a pleasing medium stain with a satin finish so it blends in with the upholstery and other woods. 25″ wide measured horizontally, so the 13 1/2″ width of the desktop that tilts is more than sufficient to stably support my computer.

Great item, but could use better finishing. I’m 5’6, 127lbs and i find it to have more than enough space in between the legs. I can actually lay under this and do work as i’m laying down. The only problem i have with it is that they could have screwed on the legs a bit tighter so it isn’t as wobbly (which you can do yourself) and that the finishing on this isn’t that great. Some of the bamboo splinters stick out and sometimes stab into your skin.

Served me well, for a little while anyway. I got this after i had foot surgery so that i could lay in bed and use my laptop and this thing was perfect at first. But over time the little piece of wood that holds the laptop stand an angle broke and now i have to use it flat, i cant have it propped up anymore. The space to put your laptop is also really small so if you have anything bigger than a 15 inch screen i suggest that you go with something bigger.

Good product–arrived broken :(. I was pleased to find this item–but so disappointed it arrived with a broken leg. I’ll likely super glue it together rather than return it. But for the price, having it arrive broken was a real disappointment. I don’t have time to return it and wait for another–i need it for a family member who is having surgery in the next few days and needs it to keep up with school work.

The finish is nicer than it appears in the photos, and it has great features from the flip top to the easy folding. I bought it for my mother to make it more comfortable for her to read her kindle and eat in bed or on the couch when she’s feeling under the weather. I think nice features to see in a new version would include a little drawer in the side of the desk and adjustable legs, but this item is fully functional and perfectly good without them. I like it enough that i wish i had bought one for myself, and probably will do so soon.

Excellent customer service – product review pending. I ordered this product, which was supplied by mountain woods. The review that follows will be mainly focused on the customer service i received because the product arrived damaged and i am unable to review the actual laptop desk/serving tray until a later date. I purchased this particular tray because the reviews for it were much stronger and more positive than most other laptop trays. Mountain woods shipped the product promptly, and i was very excited for it to arrive. My friend owns the same one and ordered it from amazon as well, and she really enjoys hers. Unfortunately when i received mine, the stationary portion (where the mouse would be) was completely detached. There are six screws intended to hold it in place, but all six were not rooted into the piece even though there were holes for them in the mousepad portion. I tried to screw them back in, but with no success. It simply would not stay on.

I experienced a back damage that stored me lying down for hours every working day, and i am an writer. I tried a lot of factors to be in a position to get the job done lying down, and this desk is absolutely excellent. I can put my cup of coffee or water bottle on the proper aspect that stays flat, and the section that guidelines up is adjustable so that i can set my laptop on it at the great angle. Even if i am lying flat, i can continue to get the job done. Good for sunday mornings in mattress, far too, with a e book or crossword. I just cannot say plenty of about it.

Excellent desk, legs a tiny loose. I acquired this for my spouse for a birthday present, and boy, failed to she adore it ideal out of the box. She has been applying it for almost a thirty day period now whilst utilizing her laptop (15′ macbook professional) in mattress, and she has been incredibly joyful. There is certainly more than enough space to retain the mouse and go it all around. In all probability the only explanation to knock one star off is that the screws on the foldable legs maintain getting a little unfastened and want tightening just about every now and then, lest they fold in inadvertently. I need to also admit that i was unhappy shelling out $10 for shipping (they may perhaps as well have priced the products for $sixty and transported it for cost-free, to have much less grouchy shoppers like myself).

I am working with it just about every working day that i am on the street and want to rest the bod with my legs horizontal when conducting company or creating with my laptop or making digital artwork on my pill – but also maintain a cuppa one thing on the flat bit on the correct of the table.

Excellent products, superb purchaser services. I enjoy the product or service but it arrived with a offset stand that didn’t in shape effectively in the slots. It performs while it won’t appear too protected in the extended operate. I emailed for rma and consumer service right away responded with an apology and explained they would ship a new one and i could even just hold the initial. It took only one working day for the new one to arrive. Superb purchaser company, now that’s how it’s performed. Product is fantastic and i will get a ton of fantastic use out of it.

Functions, but not designed to very last. This item is useful, but that’ts it. The two sides of the tray never line up, the folding feet are crooked, and the bit of wooden that props up the tray isn’t aligned appropriately and presently splintering. The screws and hinges are low-cost and not screwed evenly. It also has light-weight scratching on the tray floor. It does get a few stars for doing work- the lifting tray is very intelligent, and i enjoy that it is produced from a. I would be all right with all of that if this thing had been 20 bucks, but its far more than two times that. I acquired this one more than a much less expensive product due to the fact it had very poor opinions about the establish high-quality, and unfortunately this one would not appear to be any greater. It is effective, but its not worth the exorbitant cost.

If you system on making use of it in bed or on the sofa, one caution. . I imagine it is exactly as promised. My concern is that i didn’t know how tricky it would be to get the legs to stand up straight on the mattress. I have an understanding of the require to have the legs collapse to set it away, but it would have been a much better style if they set some style of ‘hold’ on the legs as soon as you opened them up. Equivalent to what is on little one carriages, ironing boards, etcetera. Otherwise, it appears to be wonderful and it does remain put the moment you stabilize it.

    No idea why they offer to “assemble” it for so much money when it comes fully assembled.

      • The legs are to short to put it on my lap with legs down, so i cant do that, but with legs folded, i can have my laptop on it, and still do everything i need to do, but no leaning over to grab something or having my dog jump on my bed. (he is almost 100lbs though).

      Consider this a diy project. Quality of the materials seems to be a 5, but it is poorly assembled and you expend a lot of effort fighting with it as it can’t be touched without falling apart. If you’re healthy and into diy projects, it’s great. If you’re disabled and have issues with pain, not so much:( i wish they would send a completely manufactured one to me, but i’m too ill and can’t afford to expend energy arguing with businesses then even if i win the battle, have to arrange to return the other item and can’t afford to lose more money with returned postage. It really is nice, i just wanted to let people know what they’re in for.

    Wonderful purchase for the purpose. I bought this for my granddaughter, the budding artist. She was absolutely thrilled with it. She can now sketch on a solid surface anywhere she pleases, on her bed, on the couch, in the car, on the floor, even at the park. It gives her so much pleasure to be able to do her favorite pastime on such a convenient, sturdy platform. I am well pleased with this particular product because it is so well made and should last her a very long time for whatever she uses it.

      This is a very nice lap/bed table. The bamboo was very dry when i received mine, i oiled it down with food grade mineral oil (cutting board oil). Of sitting it had soaked up the oil and has a nice finish & feel to it, not oily at all. I would buy this again and i might by a 2nd one. There are cheaper ones out there, but the price is reflected in the reviews. For me, this was a great dollar value. Very happy with this purchase. I like this design and ‘look’ over the other ones.
