The stand works as advertised - you can use your own lightning cable which conveniently fits into a smooth cut-out notch on the back of the stand to keep it neatly out of the way. The portion that holds the tablet is rubberized so +1. However, this will not work as well for thicker tablets or iPads that have a cover on them. If using one of the newer iPads with the new cover that exposes the left edge of the device, that's fine. However, when placing it in portrait mode (with the iPad cover on) despite both being made of plastic/rubber, the iPad tends to slip out, falling backward (I have a 9.7" iPad Pro).
As long as you stick to mostly landscape mode - this is a reasonably priced solution.I would recommend this item to a friend!
It's also the perfect weight to keep the iPad anchored, and the groove is exactly right. It may be a "dumb" product, but it really is brilliant!I would recommend this item to a friend!
I also discovered it holds a closed 13" MacBook Air via the front, with absolutely no lack of stability nor any indication that the laptop will come crashing down. In fact, this setup is now my wife's preferred method of connecting her MBA to an external monitor. Unintended use, for sure, but no problems at all using in this fashion.I would recommend this item to a friend!
i am very pleased with the product
