This stand is well made with a good industrial design. It makes an excellent 'throw in your bag' tripod replacement, alongside being a very functional stand. It's been good enough for me to buy two now - one for work and one for home. I highly recommend it.

Exactly What You'd Expect

You get what you came for. It's an iPhone stand. It works for desktops and can be attached to tripods as well. It's sturdy and has a full range of motion. I broke my first one (my fault) and immediately bought a second. Didn't consider another stand.

Useful, Durable, Almost Perfect

Works fantastic, hands free and feels great to use. The only thing I would change are the tightening screws needing a wrench to tighten or loosen. I think little wing nuts or so something comparable for tightening and loosening would be better than using a wrench.

great product

I recently purchased the iPhone 6 Plus Stand and Tripod Mount and, I got to tell you, it's the best Mount out there. It cradles you phone snugly and secure, I'm using it for Photography and Video moments primarily, and I don't have to worry about my iPhone 6+ Becoming dislodged from the 3 Point cradle system that is the feature of this mount. It's a finely machined piece of equipment made of quality material built to last. It was well "Thought Out ".... It really was! I also purchased the Stand that screws into the Mount and set that on my table to surf or just have my phone handy, and I purchased the other accessories that are available, the USB Cable and Devil Head, all very useful and well made.

My son loved it

I bought a wonderful product as a gift; my son loved it but couldn't use it. I returned it and promptly got all my money back no questions. That's pretty legit.

Overall - Great Product

I just got this tripod mount/stand and overall I'm pleased with it. I actually retrofitted mine with a male/male 1/4" x 20 screw to the old PED3 car base, which is securely attached to a circular bean bag mount. That resides in the center console of my truck. The positives - I like that this unit can be detached and mounted to the supplied stand, mounted to a tripod, or set up as I did. The rod and gimbal arrangement is much more solid the prior tripod brackets which would shift around on the post. The only criticism I have is the bracket itself is constructed out of plastic. I'm old school and prefer metal. I agree with a prior reviewer that set screws should anchor to a nut, not the body of the bracket. The plastic bracket and the set screws are why I give this one four stars rather than an all-out five.

Great Product

Great product! Holds iPhone securely and is easily adjustable. Quality construction. However, the set screws could be anchored into a nut instead of directly into body of bracket.

Wow! This is the iPhone 6 Plus stand you should get! A MUST have product!

Let's be real here. I've tried many a stands and ThoughtOut has made many products that I would call a "Must Have". If you own an iPhone 6 Plus then this is for sure a Must Have. This is a well ThoughtOut product that addresses all your needs. 1) It holds your product well and is infinitely adjustable. Currently I've got a Spigen® [SOFT-FLEX] iPhone 6 Plus Slim Case on my iPhone 6 Plus. I'm still awaiting an Otterbox Defender Case to see how it fits but that should arrive by today I hear. 2) It holds your product at various angles of display to accommodate what your preference is. I used the base that it comes with and also without the base on my dashboard held in place with a bean bag temporarily. The stand detached from the base can be mounted on a tripod which is what I plan to use it for, but I'm in the works of doing a DIY McGyver solution to mount this in my vehicle when I use it for GPS. It does what it's designed and advertised to do Very Well. The fingers that hold the iPhone are replaceable if broken or with longer fingers in case that case you purchased is a bit larger than the standard fingers can accommodate. Hopefully the Otterbox Defender doesn't fall into this category. Only Negative (which is only if you are in the same mindset as me) is that the setup is a bit to rigid and doesn't offer the flexibility I need and want. I would hope that ThoughtOut might consider making the setup a little bit more flexible because the wait it is designed right now you can really move it from site to site as I would like to. I would like the setup to allow it being moved from the desk to the tripod to the vehicle. If they could bring that to their offering this then would be the ONLY HOLDER you should get!
