Summary: Bought this when the sound card went out on my ThinkPad. The overall sound is good, much better than the laptop speakers. It has a padded cloth backing to use it on your lap. I just use my laptop on a table. The cloth backing makes moving or swiveling the laptop on the table easy. It is not very wide (14 inch wide screen is the limit on it. Has volume and mute controls on the right side. Good sound for the price.
Speakers were a better quality than expected...but the unit stopped working sooner than expected.

Summary: I purchased this Lapdesk for my apple laptop (with it's pitiful audio output) and it actually works surprisingly well. The mesh bottom allows your legs to breath so that you aren't dealing with the discomfort of having a hot computer on your lap for two hours while you watch a movie. The volume get's loud enough to use as a speaker system for a small party (for those who don't keep all there music on their phone) and is more than adequate for watching a movie.
Summary: Buyer beware. I received a used lapdesk in the mail. The box was clearly opened and the plastic protective covering inside was obviously removed and reapplied as there was dirt and dust all over the sticky side. It still seemed to work OK and like the others the sound is a nice added boost to a laptop if you like lying in bed watching a movie or for skype calling.
Summary: The concept was cool but on your lap this hurts your legs and is heave and made my legs go numb...The speakers work great but this lapdesk needs legs.. Its too heavy to try to put on your lap..
Summary: We watch lots of movies and tv on our computer and these speakers are a great resource to have! They really sound great. I didn't have any problem installing them, actually didn't have to install anything -- just plugged them into the computer and they work perfectly! Great design, and attractive. Doesn't look or feel "cheap".
