    Comments about Tether Table Aero Traveler (Non-Reflective Black Finish):

    There are a lot of options out there for this sort of thing, but trusting pros like the Tether Tools crew takes a lot of question out of the decision. Yes, it's a sheet of metal and yes it's expensive. But it's built to be compact, light, adaptable and easy to transport. Pop it on an older tripod or a light stand (I trust a tripod more) and you're good to go. I also use the optional strap to keep my laptop secured as well as the jerkstoppers A-clamp to keep the tether cord stable.

    Does the job nicely, but at a price

    Comments about Tether Table Aero Traveler (Non-Reflective Black Finish):

    The Tether Table works well for me, both in the studio and on location. I used to use a posing table to support my laptop, but the Tether Table is much more convenient to carry around and much quicker to set up. (I mount it on a lighting stand.)

    The only downside: for a piece of sheet metal, a socket and four screws, it is very expensive.

      Comments about Tether Table Aero Traveler (Brushed Silver Finish):

      I own 3 of these, I use them on location for iPads (participant photo upload) and my primary laptop. They travel well, and by using standard stands, mix well into my on location kits. I cringe at the price, but they shout "professional, I know what I'm doing".

      Table tends to turn and loosen

          Comments about Tether Table Aero Traveler (Non-Reflective Black Finish):

          Product appears sturdy, but I haven't figured out how to prevent it from turning. I ordered this with the Manfrotto 131DDB tripod accessory arm as suggested in Scott Kelby's book Lightroom 4. The computer table screws on to the tripod accessory arm and because of its wide base there is a lot of torque. There is a set screw in the base attachment, but it extends into a non threaded off center 5/8" whole. This should attach the plate securely to a light stand. The Manfrotto device I purchased with this has a threaded coupler. The supplied base on the tether table also has 2 threaded attachments, but using either of these will lead to the device easily loosing and turning.
