Works for me 04/10/2013
This review is from: Mobotron MS426 Portable Devices Car Mount Holder
Very sturdy and holds my Toshiba netbook (which is on the large side for a netbook but still smaller than many laptops) just fine. It has a decent range of adjustment for position and I was able to get my mount to hold my computer where it can see and use it easily.
Remember to look at the pictures and description, this model doesn't have the pan/tilt head so to adjust some angles you have to swivel the whole thing on it's floor mount lug.
That floor mount lug is quite substantial.
The joints and quick release levers seem to be very sturdy. It looks like it's built to last.
Very easy to dismount for the (in my case rare) passenger's comfort. Can also easily be positioned to allow the passenger to operate whatever you have attached to this mount.
For my purposes the device retention is excellent, it fits very tight and solid. If I were to get in an accident that would damage the mount/device it would be a bad enough accident that those would be the least of my concerns.
None. I don't see any design flaws, material inadequacies or workmanship problems at all. It looks to be very well made.
Take a look at where your seat mounts are if you intend to use this by attaching it to a seat mount bolt. The fork that goes between the seat mount bolt's nut and the mount/floor/whatever is too short to work in my vehicle but I already KNEW that when I ordered this mount. In my opinion this is not a con because if it were longer it would be less stable.
I drilled a hole in the floor and got a great big bolt with the proper washers and lock washers to stabilize everything solid. It's out of the way for a passenger when the mount is detached.
I have an SUV with a LOT of electronics gear in it. Including ham radios, CB, MP3 players, scanner, cell phone booster, etc. There are 8 antennas on the vehicle. It's always problematic finding a place to mount something new where it will be functional, not distract my driving, and not obstruct something else. This mount replaces a cheaper mouth that didn't work nearly as well.
I'm very happy with this mount overall.
