Absolutely love it. It's good quality. I actually bought it so I could paint and draw while watching TV and it works great for that. My cat likes that there is a spot for him to lay. 😂
There are a lot of conflicting reviews about this product, so here's my two cents. I really like this lap desk, it's perfect for eating snacks or working on my laptop from my bed. The whole thing is overall pretty sturdy, I had no problems upon its arrival.The folding legs don't lock into place but they are sturdy enough to not flop around so it isn't a problem. They aren't very tall however, so size of your legs where you want the desk to be will make a difference, for example I can't cross my legs and have it still standing without my legs lifting it off the bed.The left side of the horizontal part is held flat by a magnet on that piece and the main frame so it also doesn't flop around in the horizontal position. It also adjusts to four different levels of inclination, as shown in the picture.The drawer is rather small, but that's to be expected for a folding flat desk like this. The second picture shows the drawer and a remote for size, which is just barely too big to fit into the drawer in the position shown, however it does fit diagonally in the drawer. The drawer is kind of loose and if you're carrying the desk around in a way other than its usual horizontal position, you should be careful to not leave anything in the drawer because it'll probably fall open and drop your stuff out of it. The drawer itself won't fall out of its place though, once it reaches the end of its track it stays there. For me this isn't a big deal because I wasn't buying this for the drawer 🙂
I think improvements have been made since the first reviews were posted. The quality is fantastic and the inner drawer dimensions are larger. My brand new mess o' #2 pencils fits perfectly in addition to a bunch of my various pens and notepad and eyeglass wipesExcellent! Great price for a well-made quality product. Frankly, I was hesitant to see what I got after reading some of the reviews here, but this is fabulous. This thing is tight - no wiggles, no looseness, all hardware is straight, true and tight, no loose joints, no sharp edges.1) The finish is flawless - no scratches, dings or flaws in the wood surface anywhere (and I checked this thing over like a dermatologist looking for skin cancer)2) I'm a fat gal (225 lbs) and this clears my charmingingly chubby thighs while on the bed with zero problem, even room to move my knees up and down for circulation. I can even cross my ankles without disturbing this table. Yes, I have really fat thighs and3) The drawer inner dimensions are 5.3125" front to back x 7.4375 side to side x 1 inch deep4) There is an adjustable angle part of the tabletop of 4 angles in addition to flat5) The flip-up side has a nice wood bar to stop your book/tablet/laptop from sliding off into your lap when the surface is inclined6) The immobile portion of the tabletop measures 7.5 x 13.25 front to back7) Every single piece of the wood is stained! Yes, even the underside!The only thing close to a downside is that this is so purty and well made that I can't bear to paint and decoupage it, lol! *sarcasm*BOTTOM LINE: This Lap Desk is FABULOUS!

I needed a workstation I could use at home while I was recovering from ankle surgury, so something with clearance for me to elevate my leg was necessary. This fit nicely, with my "knife hand" picture showing the clearance between the tray and my leg on the bed. From the beginning, it was packaged well beyond what I expected, with thick foam for each corner, and cellophane wrapped inside the box. The legs unfolded easily, but are only friction locked, so time will tell if they need to be tightened to keep them folded when I want it flat. The tray maintains a nice flat bottom with the legs folded, if that matters to you. I use a Dell Precision M6600 17" laptop, which fit nicely on this tray, with enough clearance in back for the power cable to plug in without being strained. The power cable does overhang the lip designed for proping up your tablet or phone, but doesn't make contact while connected; barely. I imagine it would be very easy to use a drill to create a cutout for lower cable connection requirements. There is plenty of room for side connections, end more than enough room for a coffee cup when I moved it to one side. I very much appreciate the lower lip on the front of the tray since the last one I used was higher than the wrist rest on my laptop, and left a painful crease on the bottom of my wrists after use. My thinnest Asus laptop still clears the front lip with plenty of room to avoid that problem with this tray. I can't tell if it is sealed, or if it would leak of I spilled something on the tray, but the fittings look tight enough that I am not really worried about it yet. The back lip for propping up your tablet or phone was open enough to accept my phone with a thick Otterbox, so I imagine it will accept most tablets as well. The tray feels sturdy overall, appears well made, and is quite light. The legs are on phillips screw hinges, and appear to be easy to adjust/tighten if necessary. I gave the durability rating 5 stars for these reasons, but will come back to adjust if something changes my mind. I'm very happy with this product initially, and glad I bought this one. Enjoy!
This is the second one of these I had received from my order as the first one arrived broken as in the picture above and the shipping box was in perfect condition.The replacement unit arrived and looked to be solid enough but obviously the build quality of these trays is not high.I like the fact they are made from bamboo and are a nice rich golden color. The sides of the tray are raised higher on the outside three but lower at the front so you can still use it as a lap desk and eat comfortably without having to hold your elbows high in order to reach your food.The piece that is laying at a diagonal across the tray is the tablet/phone bracket which is supposed to hold your devices at a comfortable angle for viewing in bed. This part just levered itself off after it was used occasionally to hold an iPhone 7 for video viewing after a week of use!Everything else still works and the stand seems to be holding up fine so far but again we have only had it for about a week.If you are buying it for the media stand look elsewhere. You can re-attach it as the tiny brad nails used to hold it in place will go back into their original holes but you will need to re-glue it back down and hope for the best. If they can come up with a better way to secure the stand it would be almost perfect.
Such a simple smart idea unfortunately the main differentiating feature and function of the tray, the media holder has been poorly executed. Tiny nails and apparently not enough glue. Mine arrived broken. I chose to repair the tray myself because I had glue and vise clamps but didn’t have time to make other arrangements. Works fine now.

I picked up the new Acer Predator Helios 300 about a week ago. I had bought a cooling pad and was using that but I wanted something a little more comfortable for when I'm on the couch and whatnot. I was also hoping for something that could hold my mouse as well (I'm 30 years old which I know is super old, right? and my mouse wrist gets very sore after a long gaming session if it is not positioned correctly.) I spent a decent amount of time looking at all the available lap desks on Amazon. Whenever I seek a product out on Amazon, I am usually surprised at all the different options and features that I need to pick and this purchase was no different. If you are currently reading this review, you probably know what I mean. Well, let me tell you, I am sooo happy I chose this one. To try and keep the rest of this review concise, I am going to list what I like about it in bullet point format. Normally, this would be more of a Pros/Cons list but I honestly can't think of any real Cons for this item.- This lap desk is surprisingly light. My laptop is 5 pounds so I didn't want something that was going to add a ton of extra weight onto my lap and this lap desk seems to be the perfect weight.- Despite being light, it still feels very sturdy. I am sure the wood is some sort of particle board (I could be wrong but I don't think I am) but it still feels like it will hold up well. If I were to snap it over my knee, I am sure it would break but as long as it is not mistreated, I don't think it is going to fall apart. The bean/sand filled pads on the bottom are stitched well and the mouse pad area and the little stopper at the bottom that keeps your laptop from sliding down all seem to be well made.- I have a 15.6" laptop and it fits absolutely perfect on the desk area. I was a little worried about the size of the mouse pad but for day to day stuff, it is definitely big enough. When gaming, I throw one of my gaming mouse pads (that has a wrist rest attached to it) on top of the inlaid mouse pad and that setup works really well for me. It hangs over the edge a little bit, but does not hinder the use of the mouse in any way.- I am also very happy with the thickness of the board that the laptop rests on. From looking at the pictures, I actually thought it would be thicker but was pleasantly surprised that it was nice and thin. I don't want a lot of extra height added because that would make it harder to type properly (gotta avoid that carpal tunnel syndrome!) It is not too thin, where I feel like it will break easily but not too thick either. I think they found a good balance between sturdiness and comfort.- I have a Samsung Galaxy S10e phone and it is in a slightly bulky case and it fits vertically in the phone holder very well. It does not fit horizontally, unfortunately, but when I am playing a video or something like that, I just lay it in the phone holder a little askew and it is sufficient for my needs. I don't blame the company's design for this because if the holder were any larger, I think the entire lap desk would be too large and I am very happy with its current size.- The bean/sand filled pads on the bottom are positioned well and extremely comfortable. Sometimes my laptop will be in my lap for hours at a time. I have been using this for about 5 days now and I have never felt like it was uncomfortable to use or that it was going to fall off my lap. It is easy to move around and reposition, if necessary.- I also really like the handle at the top. It is nice little extra feature.Overall, I really think you will like this product. I am one of those people who spends a lot of time looking at my options and reading reviews, even for very basic stuff. After checking out, I usually get a little bit of anxiety until my package gets here because I really do not like having buyer's remorse. Amazon is really good about returns so it is not as big of a deal on Amazon as it is on some other sites but it is enough of a hassle to return something (finding a box, printing the label, going to the post office to drop it off, etc.) that I try to pick the right items the first time around. That is why I try to write reviews for items, especially ones that I like. People tend to only write reviews when something goes wrong and it can make it harder for other people to know if they should buy an item or not. So, I am just trying to do my part as an avid Amazon user to help other people make good buying decisions. I attached some photos with a pencil for scale. I hope you found this review to be helpful.
I've only had it for a couple of weeks, typically just have my laptop and mouse already sitting on it and move it around as needed. The weight of the laptop has already depressed the cushioning that it has lost its form and the lap desk is at a constant angle. The fabric on the top is not slip resistant. If I'm sitting on the couch and have my legs at an angle, the computer slides right off. They provided a small "bumper" to help mitigate this issue, I assume, but it's not tall enough and my laptop just slides right over it. I would not purchase again, too lazy to deal with the hassle of returning.
I really like this lap desk, as a phd student I'm on my computer A LOT. On weekends when I have work to do, it's nice to not have to get out of bed so it still feels like a lazy saturday.Unlike others who said the ridge at the bottom didnt stop their laptop from sliding it works for mine. Only thing I would've liked was a ridge at the bottom of the mousepad. Otherwise when you move your hand to type it just slides right off. I just put mine in the phone holder at the top.

They were good, one suggestion I have would be to have the leg bars lock in place 😃
I just received my "sicky" tray. I was really hopeful for this one. I need something that had more leg room and sturdier for my foam mattress. As soon as I unwrapped it, a small piece broke off where the staples meet. I took that as something that could happen, per the other reviews, but as I started to use it and started to have pieces break me free splinters! Yay!Pros: Free Splinters! No seriously, it stands, there is leg room, even where the middle piece is, it seems to not cave in while sitting on my mattress, I have room for my wrists and 15 inch laptop with plenty of room. Seems to be strong enough for what I want to put on it: Laptop, cup and things like that.Cons: Splinters and small pieces breaking off. The underside is where most of the splinters come from and your legs are in danger. I will update on how long it really lasts. Legs don't lock.I would say if you are disabled and need something basic, this isn't a bad buy for the price. But be careful!
While it's not made from the highest quality wood it still remains a very functional lap tray that can be used for various purposes. I noticed other reviews complaining about the sides coming off due to the fold out stand. That can very easily be amended with brad or finishing nails in minutes along with re-gluing. The trim corners are fastened together with biscuit joints and the hinges and other parts are well secured by small screws. The overall texture of the wood can be felt on the hands and yours might have noticeable marks from production. The desk is held by a magnet and a small wire will prop it up for writing or reading. A more expensive desk is going to feel smoother on the hands and be a little better constructed, but for what this is it's more than good enough for as little as you end up paying.

It fits fine. The cup holder is not very deep. If your looking for a cup holder that works, keep looking. Good price for what its needed for.
Of course we didn't use this until outside the 1 month return period. We used it while traveling once and then when we carried it in from the car, the padding on the bottom became unsealed from the flat desk part on top and all the stuffing spilled out (tiny little Styrofoam beads). It just has some cheap glue holding the fabric cushion on the bottom to the desk/board part and will not hold up. SAVE your money and look elsewhere. I can't even figure out how to contact the company directly and complain but I thought this review might help others avoid this same mistake. I'll try to update with a photo of this soon. I guess I'll have to duck-tape the edge that opened up and try to see if I can stuff it with something else and still use it since I can't return it. Very disappointing...
Very disappointed. It's cheaper but also cheaply made. First day I had it the pen tray came out of the board and I got tiny Styrofoam balls (the filling of the cushion) EVERYWHERE. So annoying. I was able to put the pen try back in but it would just keep falling out (and spill more balls everywhere). The blue plastic covering also came off on the edges within the second day. The light did work but it just sits in the little hole made for it, not very securely. Haven't been able to use it effectively at all. I'm now looking for a better model, preferably without the Styrofoam filling and a solid material desk.
