To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this to hold an iPad on a mic stand with lead sheets for rehearsals and gigs. It worked great! Stationary at home, that is.
The second time I tried to use it I got to practice and found it had broken in two mounted on the mic stand in the trunk of my car. My use seems to be exactly what this is intended for. It looked and felt sturdy enough. It was not surrounded by rocks and I did not drive like a lunatic. The way I transported it is not unusual for items of this nature - mic stands get thrown in the car with clips on them all the time and no one expects the clip to be broken when you get to the gig. The package doesn't include any special carrying case or contain any warnings against this transport.
For some reason there doesn't seem to be a broad range of tablet holders that mount to a mic stand like a mic clip. So I plunked down another Jackson and I'm going to try again. This time I will cradle it like a Faberge egg. But I shouldn't have to and neither should you.
I used this to hold my Fire HD 10 tablet while playing keyboards in my band. This works great, until you go to unload or load into your car or trailer. One little drop of a few inches will shatter the plastic.
Its just a matter of time that these kind of holders will self destruct, no matter how careful you are.
So be warned, if you buy this, treat it as if its made out of Tiffany glass! I won't buy anything like this, unless its made out of some kind of metal.
I like this design, but unfortunately the threaded 5/8 nut is only a thin sleeve pressed into the plastic body and will pop out as it gets wobbled around. The body for the nut needs to be metal, else it will not hold the weight of a 10" tablet for long and will very likely result in a broken screen when it falls off :/ Not really something that can be fixed with glue or a better fitting, just a bad material choice.
I like the design of this but my Ipad is in a sturdy case and the Ipad holder will not hold it. I don't want to take the Ipad out of the case each time I want to gig with it. Very irritating. Does not matter the angle I put the Ipad at in the holders it slips right out. I'm going to keep it as I think I can rig a work around with some screws and washers but it is very frustrating. Since the 'pads' that hold the Ipad in are removable maybe add a set of longer ones in the package which would be capable of holding an Ipad in a case securely.
Does not fit smart phones. I mean, it does, but I can’t seem to get it secured on a diagonal like it shows for the iPad in the product pictures. The points of contact are not tight enough for a phone. Don’t buy if you want to use with your phone.
Although the iPad holder works great, I was very disappointed that the mic holder attachment was cracked (where the mic sits) to the point where the piece was dangerously sharper edge. There were no loose pieces which tell me that the item was bad to begin with.
