    I haven't had the issues of the previous reviewer. I have used this stand for about a month and find that it holds my iPad Air wel I haven't had the issues of the previous reviewer. I have used this stand for about a month and find that it holds my iPad Air well in both positions. I like the small size of the stand - it's easy to throw in my bag when going to meetings.

    I bought this thinking that it would be a good quality well designed product. It is in fact more use as a paperweight than an iPad I bought this thinking that it would be a good quality well designed product. It is in fact more use as a paperweight than an iPad stand.

    The first thing you notice is the weight, it' s made of heavy thick steel painted to look like aluminium. It is not something that you could carry in your pocket and I was concerned putting it in my bag with my iPad. It immediately make me feel like 12 South were trying to get as much money as they could from me, selling me cheap steel when a nicely anodised aluminium stand would feel much better value for the not inconsiderable sum of money.

    The next problem is the feel of the two front legs, when opening them they don't feel like they have reached the correct position, like they need to be opened a little but further. This is made worse on the full size iPad as it isn't really wide enough to give good support. (They changed the design from the original compass so the legs don't open as wide, to accommodate iPad minis)

    The real deal breaker though is the middle leg, it also feels very vague when opening to the upright position, the pathetic hinge on the middle leg feels incredibly weak allowing the leg to wobble side to side, and like the front legs you never know if it is open enough..

    Worst of all when you set it in the alleged typing position it is a complete joke. The middle leg droops down lifting the two front legs up, allowing it to rock quite dramatically side to side, It is completely unusable in this position.

    Luckily apple took pity on me and gave me my money back, don't make my mistake, and avoid this piece of expensive junk.
