Table Mate XL Adjustable Solid Color Multi-Purpose Folding Table
I love this tray table! It slides right under the furniture and allows me to work in comfort - plus the table space is larger than most tray tables. Great value!!
Sturdy and So Handy
I have this table right next to my desk in my study. It is so handy!! I like it for serving food, also. It's far more sturdy and has more surface room than the traditional "TV Trays" I am now purchasing one for a gift.
Great Extra Side Table
I bought one for myself to use as a TV table. It's perfect! I also sent one to my mom because she likes to play cards, do crossword puzzles, use her kindle, and such. This large surface allows her to keep all her items in one place and she is comfortable sitting behind it.
I ordered these for the grandchildren but use them everyday! My husband uses one for his laptop everyday! They are never put away!
Ten years ago my sister purchased the original large Table Mate for our ailing mother. I have been looking for that exact table ever since. This XL size is almost just like the original version. It is not quite as sturdy as the original, but everything else is the same.
I had absolutely no problem putting it together and I am not a young woman. I bought two of the chocolate colored ones. The original one my mother had was faux butcher block. I would still like to have one in that finish.
Should have listened to other reviewers
I must admit that I read other less than stellar reviews and still ordered this table. I now agree with others that the table is difficult to put together. I have minor arthritis in my hands and found it quite difficult to hold the leg pins in to put the legs on the table or to adjust the height. As others have noted, the table is not very sturdy. It wobbles significantly. The packaging was terrible and the legs arrived in the box with many scratches through the paint. But, the most disappointing aspect of the quality was the whitish splotch in the plastic top. It should be a uniform chocolate brown. Mine has a white splotch in the plastic as if the color wasn't thoroughly mixed.
At the end of the day, I likely will not return the table--too much hassle. But I am not a satisfied customer and would warn others to think twice before placing an order for a Table Mate product.
These are good
If you are looking for army grade steel frame then this is not for you! However, if you will be using as a regular desk it serves the purpose. It is a neat little desk. I use it daily for hours at a time. The size is just perfect. It can hold a 15 " laptop, composition notebook, cell phone, remote and a glass all at the same time. For me, the greatest part is the legs. Because of the shape they slide nicely under the couch and my lazy boy. Normally I use with an office chair and that works great too.
One down side is that the max height is really too short to use when sitting on your bed - unless of course you are using one of these low air matresses.
The reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because as you extend the height, the desk becomes less sturdy although still functional. So in my opinion the price is a bit too high.
Great Table to eat on.
My Mom has been going down hill slightly and she doesn't want to go to the kitchen and eat so we sit this on the side of the bed and it works perfectly. Easy assembly just tough holding the prongs together to get it to adjust height. Other wise it's perfect.
I was excited to receive this table however it is not sturdy. This table is shaky while I am typing this review. I expected better quality.
Get better pins
I liked the size of the table because my husband is 6' 4" and I bought this table for him. It fits him nicely and the table top is nice and large. The pins are the issue!! I had to use a screw driver to push them in to move the leg. I had to do the same thing to fold them up to slide under my chair. TV makes it look so easy but it doesn't work at all. Please do a better job with the pins and the table will be great. I would send it back but my husband wants to keep it. Quality Control should make sure that everyone can use something before you sell it. We depend on QVC to have products that work like they say they will.
The concept is wonderful, but this table is impossible to assemble.....I have tried for 3 days to assemble this table and finally gave up.....The problem are the pins on each side of the legs, ...My hands are very strong and I could not keep the pins pushed in to assemble the legs..I am returning this item.....
Love the larger table top!
I bought two of these - one in latte for my dad and one in blue for myself - and we are both thrilled. He uses his to eat his meals on and I use mine for laptop work and grading papers. I wore out two of the smaller type ones and I'm thrilled with this newer, larger table top. Can't go wrong with this purchase!
