Fortunately, I have a Asus tablet and it fits on the stand better, due to its smaller plug. My iPad Pro 9.7 works fine, as well, because of the smaller lightning cable.
While the unit is plastic, that has its benefits because it costs less than aluminum stands and offers more flexibility in the angle you want your tablet to lean on the device. I have a lot of headphones, so being able to put two of my smaller headphones on the back of the stand is awesome.
If you want to have your tablet on display...which is great with photo slideshow apps, aquarium apps, etc.. and a place to put a pair of your headphones, this stand does the job. Yes, it feels a bit cheap and I would love it to work better with my older iPad in portrait mode, but it does a great job of saving desktop space in my office and gives me a way to show off the display of my tablet. The cable management is nice if you have a newer tablet, too.
