      The tripad is made out of a sturdy plastic that allows for a laptop to sit during camera/camcorder operation. The only problem anyone can ever have with this product is that the platform height is with respect to tripod height. This is where the tripod-to-super clamp-to-articulating arm-monitor platform wins but realistically speaking, why would you need it to be that far away when your DSLR/ENG camera/camcorder has all those manual controls? Buy this please, don't spend your money on expensive bulky equipment like the tether table aero system. I'm unsure if this is great for laptops over 15.6 inches or all in one monitors like I've seen people use, but seriously, save that money you would've spend and buy an Ultrabook with a higher rated processor or buy Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.

      The unit is very well built, easy to use and compact. However, when in use, the tripod becomes VERY tippy. I used it on an Induro AX214 tripod with a Canon 5DMKII and 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. With my 15" PC laptop, the entire tripod seemed to tippy for me to use comfortably. Also, unless your tripod legs lock into the splayed position, you cannot move the tripod without the legs folding up.

      I'm sending mine back. I just don't want to take a chance on bad things happening.

            This allows me to use a computer, portable DVD player another non-camera mounted monitor, have papers (script, shot list, etc. all up at a useful height. It collapses into two pieces for transport and when set-up, it is pretty stable. It is too large to easily fit in any of my cases or gig bags. It can getting the way of the tripod handle... The slide out cup holder and flat extension are very lady, too.I've used it twice - so I can't comment on the durability, but it should hold up just fine if it is not abused.

            I use this to film sporting events. It allows me to have my battery pack and sony dvd recorder right there with me so I can get the dvd to the coach right after the game when AC power is not available. And with the slide out extensions with a cup holder, This product is great. I would have given it 5 stars if it were $ cheaper. (I am of very limited funds trying to get this video business going)

            Comments about Tripad Tripod Mountable Workspace with Slide-out Extensions:

            This product does what it claims, is well-built, easy to assemmble, and use. It works well.

            BUT (and it's a big one)

            It will make your tripod tip over if the leg sections aren't fully extended and the tripod fully opened. Also, the pressure from the weight of a laptop can cause the opened to close in on themselves, leading to a potential collapse.

            In order to prevent this issue, use a sandbag to weigh-down your tripod. Do this BEFORE you load your camera and/or laptop onto it.

            I almost had my 1DMk4 with a 70-200mm lens and a 17" MacBook Pro tip over because I didn't have the legs extended all the way. Good thing I caught it before it all went "timber!"

            Unfortunately, this requirement (fully-extended legs) limits your composition. Sandbagging limits your mobility.

            Wish I had bought this long ago! I shoot a lot of tethered shooting. This item has made life so much easier, and organized. No more scrambling for a chair or some makeshift stand to hold my laptop. It is so simple to use and set up. I suggest this for who shoots tethered. You won't be sorry!

                  The Tripad will probably be occasionally useful to me, but because I usually use a large tripod with a large tripod head, it is not as easy to attach and remain level and stable, than attaching it to a smaller tripod with a smaller tripod head, by merely slipping it over the tripod head and lowering it onto the tripod legs. I haven't used it yet, but it may prove to be useful when I want a handy spot to place paperwork to refer to, or write notes about the shoot.

                                Tried this on several tripods, They all became back heavy and tippy with the weight of a laptop on the shelf. Short of carrying around sandbags to secure the legs of the tripod I'd never trust my gear on it. I'm looking for a portable work stand for teathered photography but this isn't it. Returned.

                                The Tripod mountable table is an ideal inclusion for any Photographer, Novice or Professional. It eliminates having to keep going to your bag, finding accessories you need. Good solid construction and easy to use. The table-workplace provides ample space for your gear and is very solid. Only downside, it is a bit bulky, an over shoulder carry bag supplied by the manufacturer would be ideal and perhaps a good selling point.

                                        good idea but way too expensive. when mounted with laptop, tends to tip. sending this back. not all that great in use. sugest just using a small table. no, do not recoment.

                                        Used this as a laptop stand for my wife at a class she held.
                                        My Manfroto Tripod (Carbon Fiber) and this item.
                                        Slide outs are a bit cheezy and I wish they were bigger, but it worked well so we're keeping it.
                                        I also noticed that this item will work as the suitcase version so it doubles in productivity for us, I'll most likely get more use out of it in airports on my suitcase than my tripod.
                                        Although I do plan to use it when shooting tethered.

                                        The tripad is made out of a sturdy plastic that allows for a laptop to sit during camera/camcorder operation. The only problem anyone can ever have with this product is that the platform height is with respect to tripod height. This is where the tripod-to-super clamp-to-articulating arm-monitor platform wins but realistically speaking, why would you need it to be that far away when your DSLR/ENG camera/camcorder has all those manual controls? Buy this please, don't spend your money on expensive bulky equipment like the tether table aero system. I'm unsure if this is great for laptops over 15.6 inches or all in one monitors like I've seen people use, but seriously, save that money you would've spend and buy an Ultrabook with a higher rated processor or buy Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.

                                            The unit is very well built, easy to use and compact. However, when in use, the tripod becomes VERY tippy. I used it on an Induro AX214 tripod with a Canon 5DMKII and 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. With my 15" PC laptop, the entire tripod seemed to tippy for me to use comfortably. Also, unless your tripod legs lock into the splayed position, you cannot move the tripod without the legs folding up.

                                            I'm sending mine back. I just don't want to take a chance on bad things happening.
