Simple Product at a Reasonable Price,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Bluelounge Design ML-WH-SUB Milo Micro-Suction Stand for iPhone, iPod, & Most Smartphones - Mount - Retail Packaging - White (Wireless Phone Accessory)
On the date of purchase, the item was priced at $13.95, and that should be kept in mind when reading this review.
This stand is awfully simple, but it's also awfully practical. Basically, I wanted a small stand upon which to rest my iPhone 4s, in front of my iMac. Now, the reason I would want such a stand is two-fold. First, I'm somewhat of a neat-freak. Second, I'm somewhat of a klutz. Those two characteristics might not seem to match up, but I believe I possess them, and they result in my desire for such a stand. I ran across the Milo, and it's worked out pretty well so far, but let me articulate a few specifics.
1.) The Milo ships in a small box with easy-peel covers over the face and base.
- Once you remove the piece that covers the underside of the stand, it does not shift around the desk at all, but it will lift easily, without leaving any mark.
- Once you remove the piece on the face, an iPhone or iPod, with a smooth back, will adhere, suspending the phone.
2.) I use an InCase slider case for my iPhone 4s, with a soft-touch finish, which keeps it from gripping to the face. However, the phone will still rest beautifully on the lower, black lip of the stand.
3.) With the phone in this stand, just in front of a 27" iMac, the entire phone is easily visible without blocking any portion of the screen.
4.) The styling falls reasonably well in line with Apple products and their simple lines.
5.) With the phone in this stand:
- I am able to see incoming calls and text messages and determine which are worth my effort without shifting my eyes too far from the screen.
- I am able to manipulate the screen enough, with a single finger, to make new calls and send brief replies to text messages.
- I am able to work the menu of music apps while the phone is plugged into my external speakers.
To put it simply, for $13.95, you really get a nice little stand.
