Multiple viewing angles for the perfect experience.
One of the devices that I use daily is my iPad Air2. Whether I am using the device to search the web, play IOS games or to type reviews, my iPad is with me. For the longest time, I have used the Logitech Tablet Keyboard for iPad and I have loved it. The case for the keyboard served as a fold up single position tablet stand. Well, the keyboard started to wear out and I replaced it with a new tablet keyboard from iClever, the trifold tablet keyboard. The keyboard that I chose was a better, more responsive keyboard. It had a really nice drawstring bag case, but it did not include an iPad stand. Thus although an improvement in the keyboard, it was a step backwards in my entire setup. My tablet-top working station was missing an integral component, a tablet stand.
One of my favorite features of a good tablet stand is the ability to change the angle of viewing. I have an Otterbox on my iPad and the top of the case can serve as a tablet stand, but the angle is not ideal. The case for the Logitech is very upright, preventing optimal viewing, while typing lying prone. The viewing angle is not flat enough to be useful in this position. My previous stand worked well at a table, but that was about the extent of the device. Luckily, I have received a Rex Tablet Stand. The product is shipped in a plain cardboard box measuring 4 3/4″ long X 4 5/8″ wide X 1 1/8″ thick. On the cover of the cardboard box is an ink representation of the tablet stand and a generic title “Tablet stand.” The four sides of the box are clear, without markings. The back of the packaging has a rather useful series of 3 diagrams. The first shows the button to release the angle arm. The second and third images show vertical and landscape mode use of the device and show the built-in cable management system. There are also some listed features of the device to include: handy/foldable stand, adjustable, strong, silicone gel pad to protect your device and prevent slippage. The English description is choppy but passable “Adjust to different andle…” Personally, the diagrams were more important.
Opening the package, you can remove the plastic-wrapped aluminum tablet stand. At first impression, the device is well crafted and compact. The base is wide enough to support a full-size tablet in landscape mode. There are 3 main parts to the device. First is the main aluminum core, which is shaped like a large J. In the divot of the J is a silicone-like material that provides a cushion for your device. Along the top of the metal are two small ovals of silicone, that are destined to rest against your tablet/device. They have thought about your precious device and put silicone on the areas that will have contact with the stand. The third piece is the movable plastic arm. This arm has a 1 1/8″ X 3/4″ oval cutout that serves as part of the cable management. There is a plastic button to the side (circular grey). Depress this button to release the lock and position the arm at the desirable viewing angle. Release the button and enjoy. There is also a 1 7/16″ X 1 1/4″ rectangular cutout in the main aluminum piece, designed for cable management.
Do not let the plain packaging dissuade you from purchasing this device. The product is incredibly well made and is relatively light at 7.8 ounces. I do wish that there was an included drawstring pouch to protect the aluminum from scrapes/dings. I love that you can angle this stand from nearly vertical to completely flat in the horizontal plane. It is secure, and it has a great grip on your device with the silicone pads. There is a low risk of scratching your device based on the structure. The best part of the device is probably the cable management features. Having cables all over the place and disorganized is a problem and increases the chance of damage from falls/bump etc. The product, with its multi-point swing arm and the included cable management, may be one of the best tablet stands I have used so far. I rate the device at 5/5 and highly recommend the device.
