Cool looking, but jiggles and can sag in certain positions
on February 8, 2012
I actually love the stand as it is the most versatile stand on the market. It's best used if simply viewing a movie and not touching your iPad. But it's a flexible coil stand that is not a solid piece of metal like some of the other Thought Out stands, so when you type on the iPad, the iPad will make many small oscillations before it becomes completely still again (which can make you a little dizzy after a short while of typing). This is probably the major "con" for me.
When you coil the stand, try to make the coils as "tight" as possible (the smallest diameter). The stand is flexible and if positioned just right (or should I say "just wrong") then the weight of the iPad on the twisted coil can make the coil droop and sag. It doesn't happen often, but it can happen because physics and gravity are sometimes more powerful than the stand's design. This is the only other con, besides the price.
Other than those items listed above, this stand is awesome! I can put it on the desk next to my desktop computer and watch movies while doing work. I can do dishes and place the stand in a convenient place to Facetime with family. I can lie flat on my back in bed and have the stand to have the iPad "hover" over my chest without having to use my hands to hold it up (like I used to have to do).
I want to try it out in the car and attach it to the back and headrest of the passenger seat so my daughter can watch movies and shows on trips. We'll see if that works... Until then, I'm gonna enjoy the stand indoors.
