The product is very sturdy, and very strong. The packaging itself describes the product as a laptop/iPad stand. To me it looks like it was meant to be a laptop stand but they chucked iPad in there for good measure. In my opinion it's also a little on the large side.
Don't get me wrong, it does a very good job of holding the iPad upright, good for pictures / video but if you're looking for a stand to to hold your iPad whilst you interact with it then this isn't the stand for you. Typing is near impossible after a few seconds due to the distance the iPad is risen off the desk by this stand, it puts your hands at a horrible angle and if you try to touch the iPad in the far corners it rocks a little.
To summerise, great little stand for watching things on your iPad, not a good stand for using your iPad on.
