Well, first off it is Chinese. Anyway, the product is plastic, came in a flimsy pack (from manufacturer, I think) and not a piece of art. But it does what I bought it for---a very quick, simple, easy to use stand for my iPhone 7 and iPad 2. The balance/stability is as expected again since it is meant to be used on a flat surface. It has a sort of rubber/foam base, though it remains to be seen, how many days/months (?) that foam base would survive. If looking for a light weight, hassle free, quick & simple way to setup your tablets/phones for hands-free viewing, and don't want to spend a lot for it, this product might be considered.
