I agree, I too am intrigued with some of the other tables as well. I'm always looking for something else.
You really just have to experiment to find what's going to work for you and your act. What I'm using now works great for me at this point, but as you can tell based on my posts, I've gone through a few tables over the past few years! My needs will probably change down the line.
I do two stand-up shows. My primary show is a mentalism show, which requires hardly any props. The magic show I do is definitely "packs flat, plays big". I work both shows out of a catalog case, which sits on a chair, behind the table.
When I'm in a banquet setting, I typically will request a table be provided. It blends in and becomes invisible.
But if I performed a different act and did Multiplying Bottles, Cube a Libre, and an arm chopper, etc., I would want a table similar to what Steinmeyer is selling. You need to be able to make the transitions between effects smooth and your table & case are critical to making that happen.
As I mentioned in a previous post, there may be some compromise involved. If you're doing Cups & Balls for example, my recommendation of the tray stand may not work for you if you're tall and leaning over is going to be a problem, so you may wind up going with something else because of that.
One of the tables I really love are the spider folding tables: http://bit.ly/aFjPct
Nice clean, modern design. Packs flat, easy set up. But they are just a little too small for my needs.
I'll be interested to find out which way you go with this.
