It's hard for us to tell you exactly which portable workbench will be best for you, as your needs greatly determine what you should look for in a model. If you need something that can support a lot of weight, look to the DeWalt Express DWST11556 and Keter Work Table, as each of these has a 1,000-pound capacity. If you need a long work surface, the 51-inch X-Tra 2-In-1 is king. Its 500-pound capacity isn't too bad either. Both the X-Tra 2-In-1 and Disston Omnitable feature telescoping legs, so you'll have some versatility in your working height, and two working surfaces of different materials.
The Kreg KWS1000 Mobile Project Center claimed our number one spot for its versatility. It can be set up like a saw horse, work table, or clamping station, and you can attach two side-by-side if needed. The Worx Pegasus offers many of the same features, but the Kreg beat it out in overall build quality. Many home DIYers will probably be satisfied with the Black & Decker WM125 Workmate or Powertec MT4006, since they are affordably priced, are lightweight for easy transport, and have durable bamboo decks, but they aren't designed to support very much weight.
