I bought this table to use in my living room. It slides under the couch, so I can pull it real close. I often sit (for lack of a better phrase) Indian style/cross legged and had to lean forward a lot to reach anything. I eat dinner, never spilling a drop, use it as a computer table, prop up magazines and books on it... It's good for everything! The adjustable height is key, so I can lower or raise it with ease (large knobs) depending on what I'm doing. I also like that the glass is held in place with little suction cups, so when you grab it to move it around, you don't have to worry about keeping it perfectly level so as not to break the glass. Very stylish, super useful!
