5.0 out of 5 stars Confessions of an iAccessory Addict 5 Jan 2012
I love this stand! I have an Defender case on my iPad and basically tossed aside the provided stand in favor of the Arkon Portable.

- slim design that fits easily in bags and pockets when folded up
- seemingly unlimited viewing angles - this was the real reason I wanted it as most stands have 2 or maybe 3 viewing angles, most of which left a glare on the iPad screen in my office - not the Arkon!
- holds the iPad or other tablets in portrait or landscape
- well built - the rubberized coatings on the bottom, the back, and the notches ensures that your prized possession won't fall out or move around
- joints feel well constructed, though I haven't put them through heavy use so far from repeated fold up/down
- lightweight - I still amaze at the sturdiness given the weight of this thing - how'd they do that?
- attractive design - even without the iPad on it, it has that "techie" feel and has driven several people to comment on/ask about it when they spy it on my desk

- none so far

- make one for the iPhone please!
- would be great to have a place to attach a stylus

This is a great product and I would highly recommend this to anyone with a tablet.

3.0 out of 5 stars NOT for ipad MINI 23 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase
I bought this to use it with an ipad mini based on the description that said various 7 inch tablets. It is solid and I can see that it would work perfectly well with heavier devices but not with the mini. It is very wobbly when used in portrait mode as the weight of the device isn't enough to stabilize the stand. In landscape mode it is ok because the center of the gravity is lower but you still need to be careful when doing multitasking gestures or want to press the home button.

To summarize, it should be great for heavier and bigger tablets but I wouldn't buy it for an ipad mini.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect 14 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase
Sometimes a solution is so simple it is practically genius. The quality of this is it folds to a small size, just about 7 inches long (18 centimetres)and less than a inch wide and deep. Folded in hand it feels like one of those Japanese fans that you can open out. It slides very easily into any bag. The quality is you ratchet it open in seconds and can place your tablet device (Samsung Galaxy Tab in this case) on the stand. In either portrait or landscape mode with no problems. The angle is fully adjustable, the height causes no hindrance to typing. I keep one in my bag for use on the train and one on each of my home and work desks.

It is made of very durable plastic and the ratchet that holds it in place feels strong. The TAB never feels like it will fall out and there are rubber feet to stop the stand sliding about.

Highly recommended if you don't want to keep your tablet in a wallet style case. I have a gel sleeve which works on the stand well.

Hope this was helpful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice 9 Nov 2011
Bought this as a gift for a friend, it does the job and it's nice and small to fit in your bag or even pocket.
Also allows the iPad to be in landscape or portrait which my friend liked as his case only allowed the iPad to be in landscape mode.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stands head and shoulders above other stands. 31 Oct 2011
There are many more expensive 'flash' looking stands on the market. I just wanted a stand that did the job, did not damage my ipad, was sturdy when tapping the screen, that i could take with me on journeys - this ticked all boxes.
Simple. Effective. Stand.

5.0 out of 5 stars very simple, very good 22 Nov 2011
what more can I say, this does exactly what it needs to do and is very easy to carry around.

The price is right, the size is right, it doesn't do anything unexpected and it does do everything you want it to.

Wholeheartedly recommended, nothing negative to say whatsoever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Great 26 May 2011
Verified Purchase
Excellent little device. Light but robust and capable of supporting my Galaxy Tab, Itouch (just) and Kindle. I've no doubt it would work similarly well with the iPad or similar 10inch tablet. Nice design and easy to tuck into a bag. Top marks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stand 15 April 2012
By Lee
Verified Purchase
I bought this for my New iPad and it is really good. It's sturdy, it holds the iPad even with a smart cover attached and folded back and it has multiple angles to set the iPad at for best viewing. Then it folds away to almost nothing to pop back in the briefcase. I'm very impressed with it. I use it for work but it's coming on holiday with us so we can watch films on the flight and its non-slip feet will come into their own on the flight, I'm sure. Overall, a great buy and excellent value for money. I would thoroughly recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight stand
I found this stand slightly awkward and it can be somewhat unstable. I prefer the leather rotating case for stability despite its weight.
