I read other reviews and they mentioned the word, "flimsy." This was definitely an understatement! The board, if we can even call it that, is made out of a extremely thin piece of flexible plastic. It bowed so badly, that I couldn't even type, and it felt as if the laptop would fall out. There is also a velcro-tipped strap that holds the computer from falling forward, and it runs from one shoulder strap over to the other strap. One end of the strap is sewned onto the left strap, but it does not afix to the right strap. To attach it to the second strap you have to keep wrapping it around the strap until it can attach back to itself. This means that the velcro strap would slide up or down the shoulder strap, which in turn, ceased from being useful as any type of security to the laptop.

I purchased a thin piece of plyboard, and cut it to fit between the eye bolts and rings on the plastic board. I sanded and painted it black, then secured it to the bottom of the plastic board with heavy duty velcro, and it now works great. The security straps still need some work, but I'll figure it out.

I saw a clip for this on Woot! (i love woot) and had to buy one. Well, I received it and all hell broke loose!!!

I followed all instructions and securely attached my Toshiba 13" laptop.

I work in the field and empty septic tanks. Well all of a sudden I have great suction going at the Glazer's house when I need to slightly lean over and pick yup my on off wrench.

You guessed it...my new laptop ploped right into the Glazer's spetic tank and sunk below the brown sludge that forms. I jumped in and searched but just could find my laptop. Finally after the tank was almost empty I found it. Screen was still lit up because it is one of those rugged model (thank my tush).

I was able to take it home, rinse it off and works to this day. Still smell like the Glazer's but at least I'm not out $3000.

As for the Connect-A-Desk...it is at the bottom of the Glazer's septic holding tank.

If you need any septic work please let me know.

Harold.

The base of this is very sturdy, I would guess that it is a quarter inch thick hard plastic. On top of the plastic is a no slip mat for your laptop. The straps crossing your back and shoulder are wide which makes it pretty comfortable. The only reason I did not give this a 5 is that the Velcro strap that is meant to hold your laptop onto the base seems like it wouldn't work very will if you had the laptop lid pushed forward for an optimal viewing angle. It's just a long piece of Velcro that goes from one of the straps connecting to the front of the base to the other strap connecting to the front of the base. If there were a way to more securely strap the laptop to the base this would definitely be a 5 star product.

I'm glad I bought this product, although it has significant limits.
First, ignore reviews that say the plastic is flimsy. This may have been true in earlier versions but the one I just bought is sturdy.
I use it to read standing up. I do this with my iPad and with books. Long hours of reading sitting down aren't good for my aging body.
The fact that it fits so close to the body and has straps to hold it in place can make it a challenge to set it up with books, laptops, etc that have different shapes and weights.

Pros:

It works as advertised.
The pad is sturdy and covered with nonslip material.
Adjustments are possible.
The harness is reasonably comfortable.

Cons:

The pad is heavy, 0.5kg/17oz on its own.
Keeping the laptop's screen upright is poorly resolved.

Connect-A-Desk makes you look nerdy, but is actually effective in letting you work on a laptop in an upright position, standing or walking, freeing your hands from the need to support the laptop. One thing that is poorly resolved is the issue of preventing the screen from moving relative to the laptop when you move your body enough vigorously. There is some velcro strap thrown in as an afterthought to help you with this, and otherwise secure the laptop, but it is not effective. The pad upholding the laptop is quite sturdy, but at the price of being heavy.

I ended up sewing hoops and strap couplers to the regular case of my netbook, kicking off the Connect-A-Desk's pad, but exploiting its nice harness. Now I have the effectiveness of the holder without the redundant weight. I also added dedicated adjustable straps for holding the screen in an upright position. My arrangement is now worth 5* instead of 4*.

I spend more than ten hours each week on a city bus commuting to my job in Detroit. The ride is long and our bad streets make it very bumpy. I teach online part-time and wanted to use my commuting time to communicate with students and grade electronic papers. The constant jolting of the bus made it difficult to do this. I purchased a Connect-A-Desk out of desperation. I am happy to report that it works like a charm. I highly recommend it to anyone who needs to work during commuting.

Two thumbs up!

The product does what it says, but the materials are very flimsy. There is nothing to prevent your laptop from sliding off the tray.

Mine came with one of the connection clasps bent so it wouldn't close. Fortunately, I was able to straighten it with a pliers.

I use this with an ASUS mini, which weighs only 2 lbs.(9"), so it is comfortable. But I still think I will use a bungi cord, somehow to secure the computer in place. I tried using it with a 14" and 15" laptop, but the computer did not feel secure and the "desk" wobbled around too much.

All in all, it does make it possible to type with 2 hands while standing up and moving around.
