For my use, it's great. I'm in a wheelchair and I have this attached to my wheelchair. This item allows me to use my iPad Air without having it on my lap. It's attached to the back leg and runs up through the front armrest where it is also secured. This keeps it solid. (The movie Contact shows the occupant in a chair in the pod with what looks like what could be an iPad attached, as mine is.)
I don't mind using my iPad Air in landscape but I do feel as though the iPad Air is not as secured as it should be. A bump from the bottom could take it off the clip that holds it on. What I have done to resolve this issue is to slide a mini wood dowel into the space that is created when the iPad Air slides down into its slots. You have to see one to know what I'm talking about. This dowell completely secures my iPad Air.
The rubber grips which hold the iPad in landscape also hold the iPad in portrait too. The iPad is not going anywhere. Anything is possible, but with a little common sense it will stay attached.
I immediately bought this based on the price because of my need. I almost expected to throw it away when it got here. I was surprised. Now I feel like I can't live without it. It really has enhanced my life.
You may need to do some manipulating with this item but together it's a good value.

I'm using one to watch TV, videos, etc while on an AirDyne (Stationary bike). It can clamp top & bottom of iPad Air in landscape, but not portrait. You might be able to clamp it by the sides tight enough to hold an iPad in portrait mode as it is in the picture, but that makes me nervous. The bracket that holds the iPad to the arm isn't very secure. If you're not likely to bump it, it's fine like I use mine at home. At work I am not willing to use it because I fear it could be bumped off the stand. Sorry to sound wishy washy about it! (Posted on June 11, 2014)

I have been using this with an ipad mini in a lifeproof case. it fits and works well. the goose neck is pretty rigid but the vice is not that great. it's only $20 and these types of mounts easily go for $80-$100.
it is serviceable. and would recommend it to others who needed something like this but with caveats. A4C is great though. i can easily recommend them. (Posted on June 11, 2014)

This is a piece of garbage. The neck is too weak to support an ipad, the knob on the base is undersized, the rotating ball on the bracket too loose. Overall just junk. It does not do the job, g, support an ipad and allow for positioning. A waste of $20.
