Humixx Tablet Stand review

REVIEW – Albert Einstein is reported to have said, “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler.”  The idea behind this aphorism is to make something complex as simple as it can be without losing its essence.  I don’t know whether or not Humixx is an Einstein fan, but they’ve certainly created a tablet stand with a philosophy of simplicity.  Even the top of the box says, “It is simplicity rather than luxury.”  If you’re looking for a simple and yet sturdy stand to hold your tablet or phone, Humixx has a gadget for you.

What is it?

The Humixx Tablet Stand is an adjustable stand for holding your tablet, your phone, and other smallish items.

What’s in the box?

  • The stand
  • A customer care card
  • A manual

Hardware specs

The stand is made of aluminum, thus allowing it to remain light (only 14 ounces) while still being strong.

Setup

Setup is as simple as it gets.  I removed the packaging, unfolded the stand, and I was done!  There’s a manual with step-by-step instructions, but I didn’t bother reading it.  The customer care card suggests that if I have a problem, I can send an email to their Hotmail address (Hotmail?  In 2019?).  If I’m happy, they ask that I add a review on Amazon.

Design and features

My wife and I each have an iPad and an iPhone, so we take turns using the stand.  My favorite place to use it is at the kitchen table.  I can watch a Dota match on Twitch while eating messy food that requires both hands, like wings or burritos.  I also use it to hold my iPhone next to my computer for those days when I get too many texts while working.

My wife uses it in the kitchen but while she’s cooking.  Sometimes she uses with Paprika, an iPad app that displays her recipes, but most of the time she simply has Netflix going with a movie.

My wife teaches English as a Second Language (ESL) classes online, and she often needs her iPad’s screen as well as her computer.  The stand is a perfect way to position the screen for readability.  As a bonus, the notch in the bottom of the stand allows for her iPad to be charging while she’s using it.

Humixx’s stand folds up nice and neat, perfect for tossing into a backpack when you need to take it with you.

It also has a hole in the back of the stand, a nice touch for helping with cable management.

Along the bottom, where it holds the tablet, Humixx has thoughtfully added rubber strips to protect the tablet from getting scratched.

What I like

  • Lightweight
  • Sturdy
  • Flexible

What needs to be improved

  • Nothing

Final thoughts

This stand does everything that it needs to do without sacrificing anything.  I am super happy with it, and I’m certain that it will have a useful place in our home for a long time.

Update 3/4/20

Humixx’s tablet stand is probably the simplest and the least expensive of all the gadgets that I have reviewed, and yet it’s undoubtedly the one that is used most by our family. It tends to live on the kitchen bar or the kitchen table, and it’s constantly used to hold one of our iPads. It’s perfect gadget for freeing up our hands to eat or cook while we’re also watching YouTube or Netflix or displaying a recipe for dinner. We love it!

  2. Read your review and then ordered one. Very nice stand. Very stable with my iPad on it. A bit over kill for a phone but perfect for a tablet. Thanks for the heads up on the stand.

        1. Indeed!

          I suppose it’s beautiful almost everywhere where you are not currently living though hehe. Almost every country/city has something beautiful imho. Thats why I wish we could work less and travel more, to see it all.

  3. So here’s my update after buying a Humixx stand in April 2019. A few months ago the stand arm started slipping down when in a lower position. I contacted Humixx support asking if it could fixed. They asked for a video and a copy of the sales receipt. I checked my Amazon records and could not find it. Called Amazon and had them search, they found I had ordered it and then cancelled the order (I don’t remember this or where I bought it from). I checked Ebay and nothing there either.

    So I sent in the video and explained the receipt problem. And I mentioned buying it through a link on this site.

    They keep telling me over and over they need the ID on the purchase before they can do anything. I can understand their reluctance without the receipt but I did provide a video on the stand slipping. I woukd think that would be enough to honor their warranty.

    So much for product support from these people.

    1. I’m sorry that you’re having this problem. I haven’t experienced this with my stand; it’s still going strong, even though we use it nearly every day.

      And I see your point about the video, though I also see their point. How do they know you didn’t go to your friend’s house and video his stand in order to get a free one? They can’t tell. It’s a tough problem.

  4. It is a tough problem, but if they were more committed to customer service they could see a defect product they sold. We are not talking about a lot of money, I’m talking about the difference in running a company and wanting to do what’s right for your customers. Do they really think I’m trying to rip them off for $20?
