Nantucket Mini Easel Stand
Works great with full-size iPads too
Bought two of these recently for full-size iPads and they are perfect.
I wasn't sure it would fit older generation full-size iPads (including older generations that are thicker) but they fit just fine.
I use them in the office and also in the kitchen to hold the iPad up while reading recipes.

Ideal Stand for ipad mini
My iPad mini is protected in a snug "speck" case. It is used by everyone in the household and this protects it. The Levenger Nantucket stand is the perfect stand for our needs. I mainly use it in the kitchen, but the whole family uses it throughout the house. Love that it folds, as I have travelled frequently with it. I have treated it with respect and have had no problems with it at all over many months. We live in a very dry environment and the wood has maintained its structural integrity. (Having read the reviews, when I received it I immediately put a light coat of butcher block oil on it and let it sit a bit, then rubbed the excess off. Maybe not necessary, but in our climate it seemed precautionary.) Great stand and I wouldn't change it at all.

I was skeptical about buying this after reading some of the other reviews. But upon receiving it, I have confidence that it is going to work out. It's attractive looking and well made. Time will tell.

Just what I needed
I use my tablet to search for recipes, then as a recipe book when I cook. This stand is perfect for me. It holds the tablet at the proper angle, and I can see the recipes yet not worry about getting splatters on the tablet. When I' m finished, it doesn't take much space to store.

I've had one for almost two years, and love it so much, I've bought two more for gifts. I'm thinking of getting a few more just in case. This is a great product!

Loved it so much I bought another one!
Loved the form and function, portability and appearance. I am impressed with all of the Nantucket line and this stand is a complete winner.

Very nice little accessory
This is a perfect foundation for my iPad mini, in either landscape or portrait mode. It does a simple job very well, much better than the standard magnetic cover in easel mode which tends to collapse at the most inopportune time. It also looks very nice. Very, very useful.

Came apart in my hands
I have had this stand since December when it was given to me as a gift. Two months later while picking up the stand the lip made to hold the iPad snapped apart and broke off. I have used the stand three times, have kept it in my desk in the bag that came with it. There is no reason other than very poor quality that this product should have come apart in my hands as I picked it up off of my table.

6 months Fell apart
I loved this stand until today when I picked it up and the glue fell apart in my hand. The whole stand has crumbled into a useless pile of wood. Now that winter is here the stand has dried out and fallen apart. I received this stand in May, and have used it a few times. Today, when picking it up to put it away after use, the glue completely unhinged from the main part of the stand and came apart in my hand. If I want to keep it I will have to figure out how to reattach the lip to the back. If it had held together, I would give it 5 stars - but falling apart in my hand in the first week of February a half year after purchase, total fail.

Perfect for desk, table or travel
I bought two of these, one for a gift and one for me. It is a very well made and finished product, that is quite attractive to the eye and hand. It folds away to carry in my briefcase and works great on airplanes to hold my Kindle Fire HD or iPhone to read and watch movies. Incredibly light weight but sturdy. I look forward to years of use. What a simple idea, why didn't I think of it?
