Do Not Buy This Table,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Levv Square Glass Laptop Table - Black (Home)
I would strongly advise you not to purchase this table.
I bought one and because of poor design and materials, it fell apart of is own accord. My wife came home to find the table in thousands of pieces and my new laptop on the floor. Fortunately, the laptop is ok, which is more than can be said for the table.
The glass top and base are connected by a metal leg which is bolted onto them via plates that are stuck to the glass. The joint on the base just gave way, leaving a completely clean glass surface with no sign of any bond. The top completely shattered into thousands of pieces that flew all over the room (we are still finding pieces).
I do not think that this item should be on sale, it is dangerous, and I have told Amazon this! The bond between glass and metal is inadequate and the glass should be laminated.
Amazon, to their credit, refunded me immediately and requested the parts back for quality review.
Again, this table should not be on sale!

Samething happened to mine, Tried different bonds to fix it, then gave up and chucked it. Never one to ask for refunds it only took a few months for it to break. luckily it didn't break into a thousand pieces as I have little children in the house.

Same thing happened to mine, the table was knocked slightly and the glass "exploded" across my living room, this table is dangerous and should not be sold. I will be contacting Amazon to share my thoughts, I am not expecting a refund I have had it for more than a year.
They should take this off sale before someone gets hurt.

When I wrote my review in May 2011, I quite expected this table to be withdrawn from sale and am amazed that Amazon have not done so.
If you still have the bits, get in touch with your local trading standards and report the issue. Someone, probably a child, is going to get injured by this table before long.
As I said five years ago, it should be withdrawn from sale!
