Artist Review: Lululook iPad Pro magnetic stand

Big thanks to Lululook for providing this iPad Pro magnetic stand for this review.

Official retail price of this stand is US$79.99 inclusive of shipping. Let me give you the bottom line upfront: This is a pricey stand but it's an excellent one so it's worth the money.

The stand is compatible with iPad Pro 11 (1st, 2nd, 3rd gen), the 12.9-inch (3rd, 4th and 5th gen) and iPad Air 4. Basically, this iPad Pro is compatible with the iPad Pros and the iPad Air the slim bezels where Apple Pencil 2 can charge by the flat side. Make sure you choose the right size for the tablet you're using.

The clean and simple design reminds me of the old Apple cinema display. Oh, the blemishes on plate on the left are from the residue of the sticker with instructions that I removed.

The plate with the magnets measures 26.5 x 14.5 cm. When you have the 12.9-inch iPad Pro on it, there's around 1cm from the edges of both sides to both edges of the iPad Pro.

Because the plate is so big, when you press down on the iPad, you're actually just pressing down on the whole plate.

Build quality is excellent. The metal is thick. Finishing is matte. Weight is heavy and overall it's very sturdy.

The three rubber pieces in front prevents you from scratching the metal back of the iPad Pro. There are four more rubber pieces beneath the stand for grip.

The magnets are strong and can hold down the iPad Pro/Air securely. The magnets will just snap the tablet in place easily.

By the way, Lululook also sells another tablet stand (above) on their website. Don't get the wrong tablet stand. The other tablet stand is not magnetic so I'm not sure how secure it is with an iPad Pro on it.

The hinge is stiff and will maintain its angle easily. There's no way to change the angle accidentally.

Two Allen keys are provided for adjusting the tightness of hinge and rotation.

The stand can deploy vertically...

Or horizontally.

The iPad Pro can also be rotated into portrait orientation. In this orientation, the bottom edge is 5.5cm away from the table surface.

In landscape orientation, the bottom edge is 9cm away. Having the iPad Pro at such a height allows me to sit with a perfectly straight back to draw. All I have to do is to tilt by head slightly. This is great for ergonomics and your posture.

If you follow my Youtube channel, you'll probably see Parblo PR100 stand that I use with my iPad Pro. That stand sits on the table and sometimes to make it higher, I would actually place a book thick book beneath the stand.

The downside of this stand is it's not designed for use with iPad Pros with cases attached. Any iPad Pro case, no matter how thin, will affect the strength of the magnet attraction. If you use a case that protects all four sides of your iPad Pro, it's inconvenient to remove and put the case on. If you want to use a case, then you should get a slim case where you can remove the iPad Pro easily. Lululook also happens to sell such a slim case and it's also better then Apple's original slim case because it has a flap to protect the Apple Pencil.

To conclude, this is an excellent stand for the recent iPad Pros/Air 4. When you have the iPad Pro on it, it really gives you the vibe of an Apple product. With the iPad Pro on it, it looks like a small external monitor with such clean aesthetics. And it works surprisingly well if you want to draw on an iPad Pro on it.

Official price is US $79.99 inclusive of shipping. I've seen it go on discount for US $59.99.

Even though it's pricey, it feels like it's kinda worth the money, especially if you can get it at a discounted price.

You can get this stand from Lululook online store. You can check out the many reviews from other customers there.
