I enjoy this nifty little thing...mainly, I use it to walk on the the treadmill, because multitasking is ever so important to me. If I can do more than one thing at a time, I do. No reason you can't get more exercise while reading, writing, etc.! Yes, there's a lip on the console that can hold papers, books, and laptops, but in the interest of keeping this brand-new machine in perfect condition, I didn't feel like tilting it into that thing and having it rest against the vibrating console. Not that that's harmful, but eh, I just didn't want to do it anymore. Plus, as mentioned, I sought true portability!
It's well-made, and I've not yet felt any danger of it breaking or failing. The rubber surface Velcroed across the desk does a good job of keeping the computer in place. You adjust the straps to get the right fit/tautness, height, and angle for your maximum comfort--preferably with the desk empty.
Of course it's also great for holding books or paper and clipboards so you can stand/walk and write without finding something on which to set the paper, or awkwardly using your hand. Pretty much anything you'd need to carry around in your hands to use, indoors or out, can be placed upon it for greatly increased convenience. Obviously you can't flip a comp into "tablet" mode on it (and see it), but that's not a problem.
So what are the cons? Well, for one thing, it's...small. I knew that I was dreaming when I pictured something that could hold the comp in front of me with a mousepad and some sort of portable charger, and perhaps other little miscellany, next to it. I have a wee 3-lb, 13" Lenovo IdeaPad, and it is slightly larger than this desk. It's held perfectly, but I haven't tried it with any of my family members' considerably bigger and heavier computers. I would imagine that they'd be more unwieldy and start getting painful a lot more quickly.
And that's the other thing...after a while, you really wish there were a way to remove the pressure from the front shoulder straps. Pulling down on them relieves it, but how to keep them in such a position?! Think, think, think. I doubt trying to pin them would do any good. The straps are padded (sliding rubber), so perhaps putting on more/thicker layers would help a bit? What it needs is a support that supports itself. Meh, I'll keep pondering that. Also, the diagonal strap supporting the desk frequently messes with my camera memory card, which protrudes from my device's side. Every machine is configured so differently, however, that I can't really call that an oversight.
Really, though, it's worth a solid 4 stars because I'm not sure that they could have made it as perfect as my idealized vision (I'm *always* having those, and reality rarely lives up.) It IS the closest thing to what I had pictured, it's swell, and frankly I can't believe that I had to go searching for it...how are they not more common already?
I unfortunately I returned it. Using it all day to hold a keyboard tray hurt my stomach too much plusthe shoulder straps have no padding. I just recently purchased a paddle strap for $21 that had more padding. This is a great concept it just needs some tweaks for my need and i think i can make something with a lapdesk that will work for me.
I can not remember ever writing a review, but I just received this and I am using it right now. Love it! I have a stand up desk and need to be about 4-5 feet away from the multiple large monitors and have been trying to figure out a way to have the keyboard at the correct height and have the freedom to move. I can now move around freely with a small Logitech blue-tooth keyboard and roller ball mouse. The unit as delivered is ok, but the plastic platform is very small... too small for a keyboard and mouse. So I am using a small lapdesk from Bed Bath and Beyond on top and the wrist rests are right under my forearms. The main challenge I have already is the plastic platform is hard and hurts! I guess maybe if you have plenty of belly padding it would be ok, but ouch. So 4 stars because I need to figure out a way to add a pad.
1.-.I think it should have a cushion because after 15 minutes, it feels like a sword in your belly
2.-it should be larger..it touch your belly sometimes and you need to use your mouse pad
3.-It should be ergonomically design ( not completely square)..So it would bounce in your belly while you walk
4.-The harness should be of a better material: strings are already coming out after short period of time
5.-it should have a small tray underneath that you can pull out, to put your mouse.. if you do heat maps (the main purpose you are going to need that for sure.)
