Doesn't matter how much of a good deal this might look, it does not do what is advertised. I had an 11" iPad Pro and it is apparently too heavy for this hinge mechanism. The stand looks like it is all metal but the entire this is plastic with a hunk of weighted metal in the base, under the plastic, to give it some heft. It didn't matter what orientation I had the iPad in or what level I had the stand set to, the hinge would just collapse. I even used my iPhone on it and it barely held that while it slowly collapsed. Complete waste of money, it does not work, it looks chunky and awful, it is not a solution for anyone with a tablet or a phone.
If you are looking for an all metal and sturdy stand for your iPhone or iPad I bought this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07Q3HSLH7/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It works well and holds it's place, I wish it was wider so the iPad would feel more stable while in landscape orientation, but at least it stays in the same spot and it is certainly useable.
I decided to purchase this for several different reasons. 1) I wanted something sturdy to use during video calls. This is VERY sturdy! I love that it's not plastic 2) I wanted something I could easily carry in my bag for long days at the infusion center so I can watch movies without having to hold my phone. This is perfect! I will say it is heavy but it's totally worth the little extra weight 3) It's adjustable up/down and the tilt is great. The extra little feet that hold the phone are sturdy so it doesn't slip off and I can still plug in the charger if I need to. 4) I have a large phone and I use a big case but it still fits easily. It doesn't fall over if I accidently bump the table like the plastic ones or those little ring things that you stick on the back of the phone. I really can't say with good things about this product. I bought it on a chance and it paid off to be exactly what I needed. I can leave it sitting by my computer, on my end table or throw it in my bag. I highly recommend this product.
FYI: THERE IS A REVIEW BOUNTY FOR THIS PRODUCT REWARDING 5-STAR REVIEWS.
Family heirloom this isn't, but it does its job adequately. I'm using it for a Microsoft Surface and it's ok, but everything is held in place by friction which I anticipate will start to fail given the device is on the tip end of supported sizes. It's also somewhat wobbly when you bump it or the surface on which it's sitting.
If you're looking for a temporary solution for the lowest price possible, this is for you. If you're looking for something that will see regular use long term, you'd be better served by spending a bit more and going with a different product.
Using this product for a 12.9 iPad Pro. The stand does hold in portrait or landscape when at the lowest extension. The stand can hold the weight with the arm extended in certain positions, but cannot hold the weight in all positions. It will sink back into itself, and is unsteady.
A stronger extension arm, and more weight in the base would make this a 5 star purchase. For what I use it for, the shortcomings didn’t justify a return, but it could be better. Would rate an overall 3.5-4. Smaller tablets would seem to have no issue with this stand.
Very sturdy, doesn’t tip over. I am a side sleeper and sometimes I want to “watch” tv on my device in bed (as it watches me as I fall asleep). I know I’m not the only one. I know I shouldn’t sleep with devices but I do. This stand is great. It holds my 7x9 device perfectly and my daughter as 10x9 device and larger phone. This stand is heavy enough to keep them on the stand without tipping over when even on the mattress. It is adjustable. The only reason I gave that part 4 out of 5 is because a couple of times I wish it telescoped a little higher. Definitely not a dealer breaker because I can simply place the stand on a book. I don’t personally need a second one but I would definitely purchase this as a gift several times over!
This stand is really solid and stable, with a nice weighted base and rubber grips for whatever you put on it. Perfect for a tablet or Switch. Also holds my phone pretty well, but if you have a small phone the 2 prongs that hold your device might be too far apart. Even holds a portable monitor that's nearly 2lbs!
This thing worked perfectly! It’s sturdy and stable and will hold my iPad in place without slipping. I can leave the case on if i need to but it works better with the case off. It’s very portable and folds up nice and small. It’s PERFECT! And exactly what I was looking for. I have a job where I see clients in person and also attend lots of virtual meetings. I used to have to be home for the meetings since using my phone or iPad in the car or at a table proved difficult to get a good angle or good height etc. This stand is portable so I keep it in the bottom of my work bag and pull it out for meetings that I can’t be home for. The added flexibility has made me far more productive. Highly recommend.
Height doesn’t stay extended or pivoted at the same angle with the weight of an iPad 12.9 Pro.
Within the first few minutes of use, the height extender collapsed (when sitting untouched) under just the weight of the ipad. Luckily I caught the ipad before it hit the ground.
It would work for someone who is going to sit their iPad Pro 12.9 on the stand in the low height and not touch it (like for a movie), or with a smaller iPad, like an iPad Air. But this is not for iPad Pro users who also want to be able to touch their screen to use their iPad.
It's heavy enough, stable enough, and fairly versatile. It also folds up quite compact, which is nice. There's a single caveat with this product: When extended (tallest position), while it CAN hold my heavy 575 g (1.27 lb) Galaxy Tab S7+, you have to make sure that the arm is completely straight, or fairly close to straight. At an angle, the extended arm can't support this weight because of the leverage.
Realize however that having the extended arm at an angle is unnecessary; You can either move the stand closer to you, or use the arm retracted (which is very similar, considering that the extended arm at an angle means decreased height in favor of getting the device angled closer to you).
The part that holds the tablet in place can handle any angle despite the weight, and works well despite not being metal.
For lighter devices like a smaller tablet or a Nintendo Switch this tablet stand / holder should have zero issue whatsoever.
