The desk was very easy to assemble even for a girl! The chrome was a little tarnished but other than that i love it.

Nicely made product Easy to adjust angle. Heavy chromed metal parts work well.

I bought this piece for my daughter's bedroom. The quality is much better than I expected compared to previously purchased "self-assembled" furniture products. The unit is very sturdy, has a beautiful smooth lacquer-like finish on the wood-textured composite pieces and the chromed metal legs are a nice touch. It was relatively easy to assemble. I would definitely buy again.

I was nervous buying without any reviews, but turns out this was a great purchase. The table is very sturdy and fits my 17" laptop perfectly. It has varying heights, but on the lowest level, it is perfect for using the laptop from a regular couch or chair. The wheels make it so easy to move around, and because of the design, the center of balance is always sturdy. It never feels like it will topple over. I got the light wood finish and it is beautiful. Looks much more expensive. The shiny chrome/steel accents are a nice touch. Assembly took about ten minutes, very very simple. You don't need any screwdrivers, just use the little tool that comes with the set.

Review of Mayline Eastwinds Laptop Caddy Functionally, this exactly what I wanted, and at a good price, BUT... the workmanship is mediocre. I've seen similar units at a lower price than this one, but this is the only unit that seemed to adjust as low or as high as this one does: 25-inches up to 37-1/2 inches. The larger portion of split desktop tilts to one of three positions in either direction, so both right- or left-handers can use the caddy, a definite plus in my household. The three wheels attach securely to the base, and have locks to keep the unit from rolling, although on my hardwood floor, it's possible to slide the wheels, even when locked. The vertical post adjusts in fixed increments of about an inch, up as high as 37-and-1/2 inches so the desktop can be used by someone standing, and as low as 25-inches, for wrist-healthy, comfortable use when sitting in a regular office or kitchen chair. The design does not easily lend itself to being used when seated at a sofa, unless the person is seated at one end and can slide the long leg underneath the end of the sofa. Then it would be awkward to rotate it away when getting up from the sofa. I use it in my den with an office chair, so that was not a consideration for me. The three-leg design is very stable with my 5-pound notebook computer aboard. The larger portion of the desktop is generously sized, so even a large notebook computer with a 17" screen should fit, but of course, check the dimensions before ordering. The tilt mechanism adjusts securely to a total of seven positions, including the center position of zero-degrees ("flat horizontal"). The larger desktop surface has a plastic 'ledge' securely attached to both top and bottom, so the computer remains in place, even when the surface is tilted. You push the upper spring-loaded lock mechanism to tilt, and pull the lower spring-loaded lock mechanism to adjust height. My office chair has a gray fabric, so I ordered the gray top instead of woodgrain. The two halves of the desktop have an attractive dark gray granite-appearance. Despite being 'particle-board'-type material, the desktop pieces have metal bushings inserted underneath, so they bolt securely to the rest of the assembly. Assembly was easy, requiring only an allen wrench (supplied) and a phillips screwdriver. Now, about the workmanship: The legs and lower vertical post have a finish that's best described as a milky clear coating over polished aluminum. The upper vertical post attached to the desktops has a shiny chrome steel appearance. The difference in finishes is noticeable when the top is extended above the lowest position (25-inches). The legs on my unit were welded onto the attachment bracket slightly askew, so the leg assembly does not bolt completely flush with the three mating surfaces of the vertical post that supports the desktop surfaces. The legs are very strong, and it doesn't affect the stability or function of the unit, but it does look SHODDY. The plastic bushing between the upper and lower halves of the vertical post is too loose, so the top is capable of rotating up to 1/4-inch laterally around the vertical post. It doesn't sound like much, but it's annoying when the top and computer moves slightly during typing. I inserted a thin piece of pasteboard on two sides between the bushing and upper post, and that closed the gap and stopped the movement. The unit may have been damaged in shipping. One of the three plastic end caps'for the legs was cracked and lay in the shipping container when it arrived. It has absolutely no effect on function, but looks bad, and keeps falling out. The parts list does not show a part number for the end caps, so I cannot easily order a replacement end cap without ordering the entire leg assembly. It's not worth the trouble of filing a shipping claim, since the unit will be in my upstairs den 99% of the time, out of public view. In retrospect, if the workmanship was perfect, the unit would probably cost twice as much. It's 100% functional, but only 25% aesthetically pleasing.
