Wicked Multi Functional....

I own the scaled down version for my iTouch...I use that for work (a lot). The fortunes of life being what they are, I had to go in for back surgery and bought the iPad Mini one so that I could watch movies and read and respond to emails from (they tend not to leave me be). Super functional, and secure, I like how it can pan in almost any direction without issue. I also like that the arm that holds it can be attached to a tripod (so that I can use it in the field at I would highly recommend this item. It is well built, simple to use and multi functional. So much so, I intend to purchase another for my wife.

Best Stand we have bought!

We have purchased 5 of these as a company and they really do the job! They clamp the iPad in well and the angle it perfect. As an organization, we purchase many stands as testers and return the ones that do not work. We have yet to return any of these. I would suggest this stand.

Ped 4

Not real pleased with set up and adjusting but now that it's done I'm to own it. Very functional. Very good looking. A better Allen wrench for this price would help. Company Note: Thank you for the review. The style of the hex (Allen) wrench will prevent over torque of the screw(s) during the easy, custom, one time setup to your iPad mini stand with or without a case or skin.

Great idea

Please make one of these for a normal sized iPad.

The PED4 Planet IPM10 is a fantastic product. It is light weight and the holder can be removed from the base and attached to any tripod. Because of this I am able to use my Ipad mini as a camera anywhere. I also like the fact that the holder arms are adjustable which allow it to accommodate my case. The holder has a pivoting ball construction which allows me to move the Ipad according to lighting. I give this product a strong 5-star review!! Thank you Thought Out!!

Amazing Product!- Ped4

My husband purchased the Stable Pro Ipad stand a couple of years ago and absolutely loved it. So when I received my Ipad mini as a Christmas gift I asked him if he thought Thought Out would have a stand for it. Once they became available we immediately ordered one! It is the best thing ever!!!! I am the type of person who likes to do a few things at a time so while I'm washing dishes or folding laundry I have my Ipad in the stand next to me, either playing music or it is allowing me to watch a show from HBO Go. The stand is light weight and durable. I love that it's adjustable and fits when I decide to have my case on it. We've gotten several products from Thought Out and are never dissatisfied.

Awesome Stand

We purchased this stand as a gift for my daughter. She absolutely loves the fact that it pivots and she can use her ipad horizontally or vertically. It's incredibly sturdy and well made, and she's not easy on anything. Once the arms where adjusted to fit her specific case we tightened up the screws on the arms and they've never fallen out once (and again, she's not easy on ANYTHING!!) Her and her friends use it in the car, on couch, everywhere and it's been wonderful!
