On-Stage uMount System
This item works very well for my purposes. I had been looking for a mounting system for my 1st gen iPad (this fits all gens), and although this one does the same job, it does it differently, equally well as any of the others.
The Good: The case! Most of us keep our iPads in some sort of case, and as this case is integrated into the mount, there's NO NEED to have to remove your iPad from some other case to install on the mount - Brilliant! Also, the case is legit - rugged leather looking stuff (is it leather? not sure) but does a fantastic job of protecting the unit with plenty of access to all buttons and the audio jack. Also good are the universal ball-joint for positioning and how the aluminum mounting bars fold down to next-to-nothing
The Bad: Minor criticisms, but there are a couple. (1) Although the positioning mount is universal and can be positioned for either portrait or landscape viewing, the flap of the case makes landscape the only option that doesn't throw the weight of the thing off a bit (did I mention the case is heavy-ish?) (2) The tensioning screws that hold the bars in place are essentially metal-on-metal, and they WILL scratch little circles in the mic stand and each other when tightened. (3) And, as mentioned by another review, the purple color is likely not the first choice of non-LSU fans.
None of these downsides have proven problematic enough for me to not recommend this case. Easy to use, does the job. I'd buy it again, but I probably won't have to.
