See my update following my review.
My review is based on having the product attached to a bedside laptop table/stand which is similar to Wood Adjustable Rolling Computer Laptop Desk Computer Desk Educational Desk.
This is almost the ideal way to use a tablet in bed. First of all, let me explain how it works.
There's a 20" gooseneck with a clamp at one end and a ball and socket joint on the other. The clamp can open wide enough to fit just about anything you might want to attach it to. A bracket holder attaches securely onto the ball and socket joint.
It comes with two bracket holders. One is made to fit an iPad and is not adjustable. I don't own an iPad so I can't comment on that holder. The other holder is adjustable and holds my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 perfectly and securely. The tablet can be removed and reattached quickly and easily.
The ball and socket joint allows the tablet to be turned and adjusted to suit whatever position is preferred. Up and down, back and forth horizontally, landscape and portrait. Of course the gooseneck can be bent into a myriad of positions to suit a user's needs. When not in use, it's easy enough to bend the gooseneck up and out of the way. Why I don't suggest pushing it horizontally out of the way, I'll explain in a bit.
The holder is extremely well made and solid. While using the tablet on it, there's virtually no movement unless you're typing, and even then movement is minimal and not a distraction or inconvenience.
There are a couple of problems that prevent it from being the perfect solution and is the reason for a four star rating instead of five.
I'll start at the clamp end and why it's not a good idea to push the tablet aside horizontally to get it out of one's way. The gooseneck is solidly attached to the clamp so that if you do push it away on a horizontal plane, the clamp itself will rotate. This is definitely not desirable as it loosens the clamp and makes the tablet less secure unless the clamp is re-tightened.
The other problem is that the gooseneck just isn't long enough. The ideal solution would make it possible to position the tablet directly in front of the user, if desired, or a little off to the side. Due to it's length, the best it can achieve is a bit to the side. This position is ideal if watching TV while using a tablet, but less convenient if reading a book, heavy typing or doing anything else which requires the tablet to be directly in front of the user.
All in all, despite its shortcomings (sorry), it is extremely convenient to have my tablet so accessible while I'm in bed and it makes using my tablet in bed so much more enjoyable.

After 5 months of heavy use, unfortunately I've had to lower my rating from 4 stars to 2. There are some flaws inherent to the design that have come to the fore with constant use.
First, the rubber pads that are on the brackets, and come into contact with the tablet, can slide off when pulling the tablet out. If you don't notice it right away, they can easily be lost. I've lost one and had to improvise my own padding since underneath the rubber pads is hard, sharp steel.
The worst problem, and one that will eventually turn this thing into junk, is the mechanism for tightening the brackets to keep the tablet secure. There are little levers on each bracket that slide back and forth. Slide them one way and you can adjust the size. Sliding the other way, locks the brackets in place. The way it works is sort of like brake pads on a car's wheels. Pushing the lever to lock pushes some sort of "pad" against the bracket in order for the bracket to stay locked into place.
But the design is flawed. After repeated loosening and tightening, the mechanism becomes more and more ineffective at keeping the tablet secure. No matter how tight and secure it starts, the brackets become so loose, the tablet can easily slide right out. To the point where I can't even turn it into portrait position. A much better method of locking the brackets would have been some sort of thumb screw.
It is probably perfect for an iPad since the bracket for that is not adjustable. I'm searching for a better solution for a 10" tablet. If I find one, I'll post an update.
You know what's awesome? Positioning your tablet to just float in the perfect spot right over head.
And it's affordable.
There is no reason not to get this.
1. The gooseneck is extremely rigid. It takes two hands and a LOT of pressure to bend. This is good it terms of the mount being stable. But it is very bad because all the other attachment points aren't strong enough to take that kind of pressure when manipulating.
2. The attachment at the clamp does not swivel (or at least it's not meant to). Unfortunately after just a couple days use, the joint broke loose and it now swivels. This wouldn't be so bad if attaching to a horizontal surface (like a desktop). When attached vertically (like how I have it on my bed frame), it causes the entire ipad and gooseneck to rotate and face downwards (gravity at work). There is no way to retighten the connection at the clamp and gooseneck.
3. The attachment at the gooseneck and clamp is only one direction. If it had two attachment points (one vertical and one horizontal), perhaps my unit wouldn't have broken so quickly. If you move the neck around frequently (such as moving it out of the way before you go to sleep), it's only a matter of time (probably a week) before it will shear off the connection and swivel freely.
4. The connection of the gooseneck to the tablet mount is also designed poorly. The ball mount has a cutout that allows it to rotate a full 90 degrees. This is good since you really can't manipulate the gooseneck enough to get it to face you otherwise. Unfortunately, once you have it in place, if you want to rotate the angle downwards, the joint isn't meant to rotate. You should unscrew the connector and then rotate and then retighten the set screw. But you can't really do this easily with a tablet mounted because you can't see. And because you can't see it, you don't know exactly what angle you're rotating the back of the connector to. The connector is held in place by 2 teeth on each side of a gear. The teeth are plastic though, so it's really just a matter of time before you've tried rotating your mount too many times and the teeth get worn down and then the tablet mount won't stay fixed in place.
5. The tablet docks are not a good design. The connection uses 4 tabs that correspond to 4 holes on the back of the tablet mounts. Then you push down and the dock is "locked" in place. Unfortunately, the connection is very weak. It takes very little pressure to unset the connection. This frequently happens when trying to adjust the angle the tablet screen. Also, the dock plate only has one direction it's meant to be connected at (since it's held in place by gravity). For the iPad, the corner connections are at the bottom, and the 2 tabs are near the middle on top. For the standard tablet plate, the connectors are on top and bottom. Turning either plate sideways (to use portrait mode) would likely unset the connection.
6. For the iPad dock plate, it can only be used with the iPad "Home" button on the right side (in landscape mode). If you put it with the Home button on the left, the power button will be squished by the corner connector. This was annoying for me because it meant the power cable had to reach farther to plug in and put more strain on the connection.
7. For the standard dock plate, the top and bottom pieces are both expandable. I was surprised they weren't spring loaded though. Each end has a manual lever to lock in place. I didn't try using this connection, but it seems like it would be a little tricky to get the proper tension needed to hold your tablet securely in place.
I would strongly recommend avoiding this product.
02/05/14: The pressure disk at the end of the screw fell off.
Sept.26/16: I originally gave this 4 stars but I'm bumping it down to 2. It's sat around the house all this time and my wife never uses it because it doesn't attached to anything in a convenient way. I used to dread trying to attach it to something for her. I tried to improve it but it's quite heavy and just flops around. I can't see this being good for anything except the front edge of a desk.
