Cheap & cheerful stand, but has limitations.
on 24 June 2012
After struggling with the 'frustration free' packaging the stand finally came free from the box. It, when folded, is very compact and while the black plastic does look a tad cheap, it's only going to be set up once and then stay in the one position on a flat surface. The legs click open quickly and are easily adjusted into a wide variety of viewing angles. Rubberised pads stop the stand shifting and there are two notches for the tablet/e-reader to rest in.
I was able to set it up with my iPad and my other half's Samsung Galaxy III with good viewing angles, but standing these devices in portrate mode you are unable to connect a charger to the device, which is disappointing and makes this unuseable for many people. I, however have my iPad in landscape mode so have no problem with keeping the power/data connector attached.
Interestingly, there are a couple of other, seemingly, identical stands for sale at Amazon, at similar prices.
