I don't know about this being a "deluxe" bedrest considering the fact I purchase a $40-$50 one 17 years ago that is pretty hefty in weight. But I purchased this for my mother so she can be comfortable while sitting up in bed and she says it works as long as she uses her pillow to prop it. It works best on a couch. *Shrug* good thing I only paid $10 and some change for it, otherwise I would of returned it for false advertising. She likes it so, eh.
I went back to read the specifications before writing this review because I wanted to be fair. Rereading the details I give this item an average rating. For a "deluxe' comfort bedrest pillow that originally cost $104.99 I was a little disappointed. Since I purchased it on sale for $34.99 I felt a little better about it meeting my expectations. If I had paid the original price it would have been returned immediately.
