Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Highly recommended, I've bought 3 of them so far and I'll buy more.
This is one of the best quality cases I've ever used.
It provides excellent protection for a soft case, mainly due to the stiff internal padding.
You will see similar cases advertised but they don't have the same tough quality fabric or stiff padded support.

4.0 out of 5 stars Warning - handle with care!, 27 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Firstly the positive, both the packaging and product are reassuringly well presented.
This is not something that's been thrown in a plastic bag with no visible branding to it.
For the price you can't complain about the quality, there's no sign of corners cut.

Now the negative, as someone has said before, you need three hands to use this.
Two hands to pull apart the spring loaded jaws and a third hand to put the tablet in it.
And God help your tablet if you slip!! It might bite the tablet in half (joking).
But it does hold the tablet more firmly than other stands I've used.
Just a shame there isn't more rubber under the base to stop it moving when pushed.

And finally, yes I would recommend this stand for certain uses.
It's definitely NOT suitable for frequently placing a tablet on and taking off again.
That's simply not how it functions.
It's more suited to use for holding the tablet firmly for long periods, perhaps when
working for several hours (or days) where the tablet won't be removed from it.

Oddly enough, because of it's design this stand works well where other stands wouldn't.
On a bed, on a couch, on grass. Mainly because the tablet is gripped firmly.

1.0 out of 5 stars False Economy, 17 Oct. 2010
I decided to replace an old CRT screen on a second home computer with a new TFT screen around the 24 inch size. There's a huge number of older and newer TFT screens on the market right now with a baffling variation in prices, (i.e. You can buy a large 26 inch for less than some 22 inch screens!)

I usually look for a quality product and pay a more but with this being a second home computer i decided on economy. This SAMSUNG SyncMaster 2443BW 24" wide TFT Screen (5ms) Samsung 2443BW 24 Inch Monitor - Blackwas a very good price and from one of the largest manufacturers of TFT screens, So I bought one through Amazon.

Within 10 minutes of setting up the screen I'd decided it had to go back! The viewing angle was so poor that i only had to sit still and drag a window from the top of the screen to the bottom of the screen to see a huge difference. Colours and contrast changed completely! Text that was clear at the top of screen was now washed out and almost unreadable when moved to the bottom. The window's navy blue title bar bacame pale blue when dragged to the bottom and dark reds became orange. And no amount of changing screen settings or altering my viewing angle alleviated this. Just looking at a maximized text document you could see that the words became more washed out and less clear towards the bottom of the screen. This is bad for your eyes over time.

I returned it to Amazon within 48 hour and was given a refund. I then bought a HP ZR24w.

The lesson; don't make a false economy! 90% of your perception of any computer is through its screen. Don't be swayed by large screens at cheap prices. Technology has moved rapidly in TFT screens and there's lots out there that are older and poorer. Go for quality.
