1 out of 5 eggsBroke in 2 days

Pros: The base is great as is the mount to the base. Other Rosewill products have been fine in the past (e.g., HD enclosures).

Cons: The lower jaw that holds the phone snapped off in two days after use. The button that extends the jaws feels flimsy - not sure it's going to last.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat mount at a wonderful price! Thanks Rosewill.

Pros: This is one of the best dash mounts I have purchased. I like the fact that the side clamping a somewhat soft foam on each side, making it easy to set the clamping pressure for your phone or device and then never have to adjust it again. Unlike others that have the rubber or gel, you don't have to release the clamping to remove or insert the device. I also like that it comes with a sandbag mount pad that has the no slip gel on the bottom so that it won't slide around, but still is able to be used in different vehicles. The mount pad has a cut out in it so when you have your phone docked and in portrait view, you can still tilt the mount down far enough to be able to see the screen easily. I bought one for my self a few months back, and my wife and brother-in-law liked it so much that I bought both of them one also. It is a really good deal when you figure that the sandbag mount usually cost almost double what this whole assembly costs. If you don't mind waiting a few days or you have Premier and get free shipping, at $9.99 you can't go wrong with this one. The mount arm itself is made from plastic, but it is really sturdy. The clamping mechanism mounts to the suction arm by way of a ball and socket with a clamping ring. This makes it extremely rigid and hold it position, while still being able to be adjusted without loosening the ring. The clamping arms are spring loaded, so by pressing the button on the side the arms will open up until you release it. They are also geared to one another, so pressing one in will cause the other one to compress also. I tend to squeeze them both though, as it makes it a lot easier to clamp down with one hand.

Cons: The only thing that I had an issue with is the suction cup. I don't know why, but it seems that all the suction cups made nowadays do not retain their hold very well. A quick fix for that though is to lubricate the suction cup lightly prior to setting it. It works best to use something that will not evaporate such as oil, Vaseline, or even soft wax, like what is in chapstick, and only use the slightest amount just barely enough to coat the service. I used a small dab of silicon lubrication gel, and it works great. I have had it mounted since I purchased it, and the suction cup has yet to lose it's hold. Doing it this way will prevent the suction cup from losing it's suction, but using too much will cause it to slide around on the smooth service of the sandbag.

Other Thoughts: Overall I am impressed with this mount. It is a lot cheaper than other ones on the market, but it is made to an equal or higher quality standard. I recommend this to anyone that needs a dash mount for your phone, or is in need of a replacement for a GPS or radar detector.

2 out of 5 eggsMelted :(

Pros: Bought on sale and held my phone well for about a year.

Cons: I bought 2, one was new and the other was a display. I sent the display back and received a new one. I have 2 cars so I had placed one in each car. Spring and summer came and went. They both melted. Don't forget to remove them from your dashboard when you're not using them during the spring & summer.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product!

Pros: Works great! Loved my first one so much I bought a second one to use at the office. It holds phone securely...base is nicely weighted. When I am home my cellphone is almost always in it...like a portable mini-monitor.

I bought the first one because it was on sale for a great price...and my second one just a few weeks ago because it was on sale again...no regrets!

Cons: None. I use caution when walking around holding the product while my phone is gripped within it's jaws...and occasionally my phone has slipped out when I've been less cautious. I have had the stem connecting the base to the holder lose connection a few times, either due to the suction cup failing (rare) or the stem to holder connection disconnecting due to poor orientation while carrying around. I do, however, typically move from room to room carrying the product with one hand while my phone is secure in its grip.

Other Thoughts: I love having the extra one at my desk at the office as I like to keep my phone in silent mode ... and this holder is nicely configurable so that I can having it sit beside my other displays and I can easily notice inbound messages on phone....or de-stress and casually flip a few news articles very easily. Great product.

2 out of 5 eggsBad suction cup, bad grip

Pros: The weighted base is hefty and stays put. The sale price for this was a good price.

Cons: I bought this as part of the "cyber monday plus a few days" sales. I also live in the midwest. It worked as advertised while the weather remained a bit warmer, but by late December as the temperatures dropped, the suction cup stopped working altogether. Like other reviewers, I was confused because I made sure everything was fully cleaned but it just wouldn't stick. If I held the suction cup up to the vent with full heat for a few minutes, then it suctioned just fine. Until it cooled down, and it would fall. At this point, the product is unusable in the winter -- so I attached velco to the base and the suction cup and that got me back up and running again. (Let the record show that I shouldn't have to do that, but it's a work-around.)

And I should rephrase: it got me up and running again until the gripping part of it started to fail in the cold weather also. It wouldn't release, except with some help. When the interior car was warm for a while, it was no problem. Also over time the right-side of the grip would slip, so my phone wouldn't be centered. Not a problem, except that as it happened more and more the right arm finally just gave up altogether and now just slides freely and does nothing.

Other Thoughts: Overall I was happy at first but quickly disappointed as the weather turned colder. With the velcro, the base is still usable (no window attaching though) so I'm going to look for a replacement grip holder-thingy. At this point I'm not sure it was worth the savings.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Best phone gps stand with the low price

Pros: This stand provides you 2 ways of using:
1: Use the sucker directly
2: Use the heavy stand
I recommend NO2 because sucker sometimes will fall from the windows and that's horrible! And you if you make a little research, friction stand made by GARMIN will cost you over $20!

Try Rosewill !

Cons: Installing process can be improved especially on the "ball" part

2 out of 5 eggsBad suction cup

Pros: This is the second one I have had. The first got stollen but we loved it so much we bought it over. This was incredibly useful as the mount for our GPS was old and broke and this even holds our various sized phones. I even was able to attach this to the side window in order to hold a phone playing a movie for my toddler in the back seat. It worked well being stuck to the window holding my phablet phone.

Cons: The suction cup on this second one does not stay connected to the weighted dashboard mount. I cannot figure out what is wrong. The mount seems clean and I know I am connecting it right. I actually attached it to a window and it stayed for more than 24 hours. Not sure why it will not stay attached to the dash mount.

1 out of 5 eggsBroke on first try

Pros: Good concept, Cheap

Cons: The side arm broke off before I ever got a chance to put it to use. Used other rosewill items before and they served their purpose, this one however, was a fail. Wasted time and money.
