Product site offer details & such:
BOGO: 1st – $29.95 + $9.95 P&H, 2nd – $0.00 + $9.95 P&H. Sales tax: Varies. Guarantee: Lifetime (minus P&H). Notes: 24-48 hours for customer service to have your information.

It’s 1:45am. I’m starting to watch USA Network’s “Pysch” from beginning to end. I have a laptop on one TV tray and a mouse pad on the other. I’ve never been good with desks. I wish I could adjust the one on the left where the laptop rests so I could angle it to the second monitor a bit better. I look at the Table-Mate with envy.

The question is whether or not th etime it would take to adjust the height would be worth the effort.

What Is Table-Mate?

Ever had a TV tray and wished you could switch the height so it fit you perfectly on the bed, the chair and the couch. I’m missing my couch. Well, someone did and they did something about it. We’re guessing that’s the inspiration for the Table-Mate. But the adjustable height isn’t our favorite part. Our favorite part is the cup holder that sits off the side of the Table-Mate, meaning that more table space is open to holding my ergonomic keyboard and popcorn and the like.

According to www.tablemate.com (official affiliate link), Table-Mate claims the following features and benefits:

  • most comfortable portable table

Does Table-Mate Work? Reviews, News & Issues from Bloggers, Vloggers & Other Key Industry Sites…

Order Process: We’ll confess that this is one of the priceier BOGOs we’ve come across. Usually a $30 dollar price tag on a product doesn’t come with a BOGO but with the extra $10 you’ll get the second one. If you order from the product website, it’ll come out to about $50 when you throw in the shipping. Amazon (link below) probably has it cheaper for a single one, but either item are fun.

Product Performance: This one has been fun to check out. We’ve had to dust off some old reviews to see what people thought. Though what we found online is fluffy. Light and fluffy. That kind of fluff that can get thrown in the air and ride the air waves all the way to the cold return next to the couch.

Our favorite review? NBC 11 Atlanta’s video review. They even got a high school state cross country coach to test it out. Take a peak below:

Final Thoughts – What to Expect…Perhaps

Well, if they’re willing to pull this product off the moth balls and put it back into As Seen on TV late night circulation instead of trying out another of the thousands of products waiting in the wings for their chance at stardom, we expect good things. We expect someone’s going to figure out those cup holders will hold beer. Other will find out they can play a mean game of solitaire on those things. And some folks will probably use them as footrests, the bastards.

But given the reviews we’ve gone over, we think people have found a friend in the Table-Mate.
