I was debating between this and the cheaper one (~1000 Yen), but I bet my luck on this (twice as expensive.) However, I found that it is very sturdy and firm. This holder could handle my iPad 2018 (9.7") flawlessly. It only wobbles a bit at the beginning. Adjusting position is easy enough. If I ever need another holder, I would buy this one w/o hesitation. That's how impressive it is.
