Just perfect for computers and accessories

Curve's hallmark is stability. The computer mounted on it barely moves, which is exactly what I was looking for in a desktop stand. I also appreciate the simple size that doesn't stand out on my desk, essay or anywhere else. The tilt angle of the keyboard is also comfortable for typing. Happy with this purchase.

Pros
  • Sleek design
Cons
  • Some problems

Great design but unacceptable build quality

I bought this stand because I like the design, so I'm willing to pay more. However, for a $50 MSRP product, this build quality is simply unacceptable. The paint is cracked, the rubber feet have rough edges, and the metal surface isn't even smooth. I have requested a replacement and the product I received still has these issues. Very disappointed with the build quality.

Pros
  • The best
Cons
  • There are flaws

Apple Quality Laptop Stand

I know it looks like an overpriced piece of bent metal but trust me it's the best piece of bent metal you can buy. Use dense, high quality steel. What does that mean for you? That means your laptop won't bounce up and down as you type. I know it's hard to justify the price but trust me when you finally see and feel the quality of this stand you will realize where your money went.

Pros
  • Great Construction
Cons
  • ---

Great design fits 17 " Razer Blade Pro

The product description says "Compatible with 11" to 17" laptops so I thought I'd buy this for my 17" Razer Blade Pro. My Razer Blade Pro 17 barely works, it seems so unbalanced on the stand that the slightest bump or even opening the screen at an angle can cause it to lose its balance and fall off the back stand. If they made the poles that hold the laptop a bit longer, that wouldn't be a problem. Also, the bend at the ends of the poles (which keep the laptop from sliding around) feels tooโ€ฆ

Pros
  • Rugged finish
Cons
  • Compatibility

My wife absolutely loves this thing - she paired it with a second keyboard and mouse and it has made her COVID workspace much more ergonomic and ergonomic made functional. I also use it when I can pick it up from her and it fits both my large 16" MacBook Pro and her smaller MacBook Air. What you gain in strength with a one-piece design, you lose in adjustability. in height and get stuck at the angle of the installed base and you really don't want to type a lot on the laptop keyboard once it'sโ€ฆ

Pros
  • Stylish and modern design
Cons
  • Almost never

Works well with 2019 MacBook Pro 13 inch

Item arrived well packaged (wrapped in soft material inside the box) and in perfect condition. I've seen some reviews saying it arrived broken or damaged but that doesn't apply to mine. This is a really solid metal stand with nice rubber grips to keep the laptop from sliding around. I use it with a 2019 MacBook Pro and have also tried it with my 2011 MacBook Air - both fit perfectly. Black is better than I expected, but I would have liked a gray option to match Apple Space Grey. Overall a goodโ€ฆ

Pros
  • Confident
Cons
  • Could have chosen a newer model

Incredibly useful product for TouchBar Macs

I wouldn't normally write a review on such a simple five start product - I think it's exactly what you can imagine. Except that I wanted to talk about two unexpected things. First, it *really* impacts the usability of Touch Bar Macs, where you can easily see all of the Touch Bar's functionality. Plus, using the trackpad from time to time makes it even more accessible. Second, for some reason, Twelve South is sending you "updates" that are horribly out of sync with the information available onโ€ฆ

Pros
  • Cool product
Cons
  • Hard to say

Works great and good quality but had a small dent

I have this stand for my WFH rig with separate mouse/keyboard and I love it. It's sturdy yet fairly light, elevating the 15-inch MacBook Pro to a comfortable viewing height. It also puts the camera in the perfect position for video calls, which allowed me to disable my separate external camera. I also like that I can slide the keyboard down (partially) so my shoulders are in a more comfortable position while typing. It took me a while to decide between this and the mStand, which is $20 cheaper.

Pros
  • Electronics
Cons
  • Very expensive

Quality control is a joke

I bought this laptop stand because I really liked the design and needed something functional and awesome for my WFH. I like that it's a solid piece of metal while most other coasters are separate pieces. The first one I bought was ok, the rubber strips on the bottom looked like they had been taped on by a blindfolded child or a monkey with its legs. The rubber strips are a bit too big for the grooves of the inserts, so the dried glue comes out of the seams and the protruding parts don't evenโ€ฆ

Pros
  • Laptop accessories
Cons
  • Crumpled packaging

Solid solid well designed

I'm not sure what to say about this item as it's just a piece (plastic?) that sits on my desk and holds my laptop in one position That angle appears much better than when the laptop is lying flat. Gravity holds the laptop securely in place, and removing it from the stand is a breezeโ€”unplugging connected cables takes longer. I appreciate the simplicity and efficiency of the design. I have a desktop and my layout is a laptop on the left, a monitor on the right, and an external keyboard + trackpad

Pros
  • stand
Cons
  • boring packaging
