Hi, you know I’ve been blogging online for a few years from home now and recommending Amazon products. It is nice bonus money and I have bought me some cool toys this way. My camera for example, which I have NOT touched this year and is collecting dust in the drawer. I just can’t find time for it.
So although I have gotten a lot better in picking good products to recommend than when I first started, and even started making consistent small amounts, just until now I have not tried this thing called “online ordering”. Things simply come late to my country.
But late or not they have finally arrived. I have been searching for an e-table or laptop lap table for a long time. 2 or 3 years maybe. At first they didn’t have them, then they had some weirdos, costing too much money.
And then one day I saw my perfect e-table being advertised on Facebook, on my language and from country. What a huge surprise that was!
So immediately I went to check video reviews of this product. And I liked what I saw. This table had everything I needed.
I have even found it on Amazon! Before I forget here is the link to it if you want to check it.
I liked the reviews, it has a lot of comments, it seemed like a popular item so I decided to go for it and get it. Yay, my first order online with home delivery!
I felt like something you’ve been hearing about for a long, long time and finally you get a chance to try it. A bit excited!
The only thing that worried me a little was the price. My e-table was cheaper than the one on Amazon, and knowing my nation it did raise a suspicion. Usually things are 2-3 times overpriced in my town.
So there I was waiting for it to come. We had a series of earthquakes. One was particularly scary, and it traumatized me so much, me living on the 6th floor in a shady built building that I didn’t live there for a month. So the delivery agreed to bring it to my work place.
Oh talking about a great feeling! You just order and they bring it to you. No endless walking through crowded shops, no head hurting from all the artificial lights and loud music in the malls. Now I fully understand why this businesses is thriving.
And then the product arrived. Let me tell you: I just KNEW there will be something wrong with it. That price tag was not for nothing. It is just my country people and the way they do business. Always to cheat you and extort money from you and not give you the same money worth. It is always this way.
Let me show how it looks:
Well looks ok right? The legs expanded and secured, the table is pretty sturdy, enough to be functional, the cup holder is there, the mouse pad on the table too. The coolers are there (2 of them) and the expandable usb cable included.
With one flaw: the black laptop surface does not LIFT UP. So what you see is all that I am able to do with this table (except fold the legs or change their height – this works good).
But you see the laptop surface should be able to lift up like on the image below:
Well mine does NOT do it. It is probably some cheap imitation to sell underground.
So after my initial anger and thinking about returning it I’ve decided to keep it. Part to save my nerves of endless communication with the seller who probably doesn’t have the original version of this table, part because I really need a similar table. It will still serve me for working with my laptop in my lap. It will be a good heat proof surface, it does have mouse pad which I’ve concluded I really need. It’s quite uncomfortable moving the mouse on the bed and bending my wrist unnaturally in the process.
Now I believe that the LD09 e-table dimension and size are right so as I had trouble finding them online I will write them here if it will help anyone:
- LD09 e-table length (horizontally): the whole table is 56 cm and the black LD09 e-table surface is 31 cm long. You can convert to inches if it will make it easier on you (plenty online converters).
- LD09 e-table width (vertically) is 22 cm with legs compressed.
- LD09 e-table width (vertically) is 29 cm with legs expanded. My e-table is not so stable with full height so I am not going to use and and I don’t even need it.
The whole table is really easy to fold, unfold, expand the legs and generally change its shape. No problems there.
You can see it from the inside with legs folded (good version to use with a pillow below it on the knees):
I like that it can fold so you can put it in the laptop bag or backpack. Here it is folded:
The LD09 table dimensions when folded are:
- LD09 folded table length (horizontally): 28 cm
- LD09 folded table width (vertically): 31 cm
It’s such a cute and practical thing (even with mine having a flaw). If had gotten the original version I would have been truly pleased with this product. So if you are in doubt whether to order it from Amazon my recommendation is to get it. You will not have a flawed one that’s for sure. Amazon is a reputable seller.
Here it is again (upside down though):
And to introduce the main promotor of this e-table, my cat Puffy who’s been jumping on me the whole time while I was writing this post and at one point I had to lock it on the balcony. Here she is begging to get inside:
So funny – of course I let her in after 2 minutes! She just continued jumping and distracting me!
