Really the main negative with this table were the instructions, which were ridiculously confusing for a box that essentially came with 3 pieces and a few bolts & casters!! Turns out it's already partially assembled, so keep that in mind when you're trying to figure out which pieces they're talking about! There is also a lot of confusing language around what turns out to be the main vertical bar, which supports the up/down/hold features using an air system, that is actually pretty neat once together! Here's my advice: throw out the directions with the packaging. You seriously don't need it, and almost all of my time in assembly was reading them! Turns out, it's a pretty simple set-up - just put the pieces where they obvious go, put the bolts & casters in, and done. Don't worry about getting the vertical raise to work, because it will once the table is upright. Man, I wish I'd gotten this advice before I got this table :)
So that all being said, this table is great, and absolutely solid. I actually use it as a portable desk for my PC monitor, so I can use my desktop PC as a laptop. It holds this expensive equipment completely solidly and securely, which is what I was afraid of. I can easily move it back and forth, up and down, absolutely no shaking or worry - only problems are with the monitor's flimsy stand!!
Surprisingly, also fits in with my modern decor, in its industrial way. Who knew?
The table arrived promptly and was so easy to assemble. I had read other reviews before receiving it and found I had the same positive experience. The table is easily adjustable and very sturdy. This table also comes with all of the tools you will need to assemble it which was perfect since I had ordered it for my 86 year old mother and was at her home and not my own. The tools were sturdy and easy to use as well.
I have a condition that requires my legs to be up if sitting for any length of time and this was perfect for when I want to write on my laptop. I use it in my guest bedroom with the bed and the table slides easily under the bed and I can raise and lower it pretty easily, too. It was very easy to put together (I did it by myself in about 10 minutes, came with all the tools you need). I like the plastic grey top with side cup holders better than the wood laminate like in a hospital, it is not high tech but more appealing to me - i use it for painting, too!
Mother eats her breakfast in bed and her lunch in her wheelchair or her recliner. This table is adjustable enough to accommodate all three. The height adjusts very smoothly and can easily be done with one hande. It is very well constructed and rolls smoothly on the wood floor.

Let's be honest, this is like a hospital tray table. Not the most beautiful thing to look at but oh so practical and easy to use. Adjusts simply; is sturdy; simple to clean. Large surface is a big plus. Suits our needs perfectly.

Delivery was fast, and assembly much easier than I had anticipated. I was very glad to find the assembly tools were included with the product. It took about 30 minutes to put it together. The table is sturdily built and very solid. My husband is delighted with it, as it makes it easy for him to keep what he needs close to him whether he is in bed or in his recliner. Meals are also much easier with this item.
Is the tabletop more slippery than a wood top table? My mother has trouble controlling her motor functions. I am concerned if she has a book on this table that she is reaching for, it might slide more easily on her and be more frustrating.Beard1212 on Dec 9, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for contacting us, Beard1212. The tabletop is smooth and is probably equally as slippery as a finished wooden table.
Please let us know if you have any further questions.

This table with 30" x 15" molded composite top is a smart alternative to wood, which over time has the potential to crack or peel, creating sharp edges and a breeding ground for bacteria. Goes together very easily, move up and down smoothly, and almost glide across the floor and doesn't swivel.
