To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I always start from the positive. This stand is well made. Simple design too few things to break . It also holds the book well. The adjustable page holders can move so they do not abstract the page, so reading is easy. I am 5 feet 8 inches tall. The stand does not go high enough for me not to bend. My neck hurts when I use it while standing in the kitchen where I would use this stand most of the time. I bought it to hold my books while I cook so I could follow step by step instructions. It has to be a foot taller for me to be able to use it. So to summarize, I would keep this if I were on a shorter side but not for tall people
Mostly happy. Greatly reduced neck, wrist, and eye strain as my textbooks are held at a readable distance for prolonged periods. Only complaint is the metal rail to tilt the platform is a narrow arc instead of a wide flat piece. There is a grove the width of the product allowing something wider, but the narrow arc reduces stability of the supported platform. Would still buy, but would prefer that be improved.
