Good But Could Be Much Better
on November 2, 2011
All of the good reviews of this product had my expectations set very high and, unfortunately, this product did not deliver. I was looking for a stand I could use on my nightstand to hold a cased iPhone 4 and a naked iPod Touch 3g (though not at the same time). I had just about given up when I found this product and couldn't wait to get it.
The build quality is excellent and that's this product's biggest plus.
It holds my iPhone 4 in it's Otterbox Defender perfectly and the iPod Touch in a Speck Pixelskin sits well, too. But I wanted a stand that would hold my iDevice "as is" whether I had a case on it or not. Yes, it fits both while they are naked, but not securely. The slightest touch will cause them to slide off and the supports that are on the stand do not keep it from touching the metal so scratching is a real possibility. Slightly Widening the curve on the two supports and carrying the clear "cushioning" through the entire curve might do the trick there. And moving the logo with it's thin layer of cushioning higher, to the top edge of the stand, might help.
The other issue I have is that the stand is just too light. It moves at the slightest bump--such as trying to tap the "sleep" button in an alarm app--and if the iDevice is naked, then it moves as well. I solved this problem with some poster tac around the bottom edge, but even that is not perfect and ruins the sleek look.
If neither of these issues matter to you, then I'm sure you'll be very happy with this. It's well-built and looks great anywhere.
