      Hi,
      I did not received yet ANYTHING. Nothing seems to move. No updates.
      Moreover it seems his last login on Kickstarter is 12 Dec 2013. Everything seems abandoned (e.g. if he does not login, he does not read either comments..)

      I looked at his advertised web sites, Ocean Motion International ( http://oceanmotionintl.com/ ) and he is there smiling, as Product Developement Manager.
      Looking at how this Project has been managed,I just wonder if they ever were able to release any product.... :(

      Mine has zero utility given that the suction is defective, so I'd say it's not worth paying any import fees if they're even a little bit expensive. The unit arrived ready for the dumpster.

      Creator Srijith Nair on April 14

      Hmm, now that there is a faint possibility of getting my unit, is it even worth paying any import taxes etc. that the package may incur? From the feedback here, it does not seem like a good idea!

      Creator Ron Mirasol on April 11

      I got mine a while back - it's a mixed bag. I have one part of it set up in my car. the suction cup piece doesn't work because of a poor choice of bolt, which rotates freely if you over-twist it. but I am able to use the clip to attach the stand to the AC vents. with that setup the stand is sturdy, but wobbles a bit with bumps in the road. I have no problems with the nanosuction with my phone (Samsung Galaxy S3).

      the other half of the parts (I have another nanosuction pad and more links) is sitting gathering dust. because the other attachment piece, the suction cup, is not working, there's nothing I can really do with it.

      I'm sorry there's so many of you that haven't gotten your rewards yet, and I hope that you do find some uses for the stands when you get them!

      Still haven't received mine. Not sure if I want it to show up at this point, considering all the negative comments from those who have received theirs. If it arrives owing duty and taxes or, worse yet, brokerage fees for UPS or Purolator, I'll have to decide whether it's worth paying the fees.

      @Frank. I totally agree. I have mine for a while already and its been sitting in the garage after being used once. Can't rely on a poorly made product. Plus an immature project manager. Using the product only reminds me how dreadful it was supporting you.

      Creator Frank Pinkston on April 9

      I got mine a few months ago but it never worked as advertised. So you guys who are awaiting shipment, don't get your hopes up cause when you get it, it won't hold an iPad Air on the sticky pads. I wish I had never backed this project.

      @EmiIie, I use the Treebunga mostly with my iPad. Having the three legs, two for positioning and the third for mounting the iPad, it's very stable in most any position. I think you'll like a lot.

      Word of warning to anybody who uses an iPhone. The stands work horribly with the 5S. My 4S was great, nice smooth glass back... the 5S is textured, and even with a smooth case, it won't work well. Waste of money.

      I wonder if any of the 12 projects that Dwight has backed... if any of them had turned out the way his turned out... would he be as angered as we are...? Yup he would!

      I have filed complaints (with Kickstarter) against this project and two others and have yet to hear anything from them.
      Between this project and three others, I have lost $507.00. I'll never back another Kickstarter again,

      Creator Jim ONeill on March 19

      I contacted my credit card company a week or two ago to reverse the charges. I've been credited my pledge, and they've opened up a case looking into it. Since kickstarter is listed on the transaction, the case will be against them. I recommend everyone contact their CC company, and maybe kickstarter will finally step in and do something regarding Mr. Houser.

      from face book on March 5 th

      Dwight and I (Eddy) will be building and hopefully finishing tonight. We will then be packaging for shipping and hopefully have all mailed out soon. Like mentioned before we were over budget, so the thousands (like 10k with internationals) in shipping costs might not all be afforded this moment but we keep investing everything we personally have into finishing this project and moving on. Kickstarter will be updated soon and asking for anyone who has moved to give us their new mailing information. Thanks for your support and patience again and we hope you enjoy your stand.

      Creator Jacob Landis on March 10

      Amazon only gives you a small window to get a refund. You're more than a year outside of that period, so your only refund bet is to call the credit card company and file a complaint.

      Anyway I can ask refund from Amazon?
      https://payments.amazon.com/help/Personal-Accounts/Managing-Your-Orders-Transactions/Returns-Refunds
      I can only find this website and it told me to contact seller first? Or I can just submit to Amazon directly?

      I have tried to contact him for missing major parts and extra stuff and nothing. It's bad enough to steal my $59 but to steal $42k... I can't imagine. I hope he was able or more to the fact WE were able to pay his bills for a year!
      What a terrible waste of skin! I only hope that his friends, parents, wife and kids know what kind of person he is!
      Be proud of your dad kids...he was good enough to steal from 776 people for a large amount of money! I hope they learn from dad but then end up in jail with dad!
      I will never by anything that this guy is a part of...Kickstarter or not!

      @ Richard Parkes: Yea Not to sure about that, I contacted them back in December and they said once payment is complete they cannot issue a refund and that I should contact the creator...Which is a problem in and of itself considering his lack of presence on the site. Kickstarter can't refund, Amazon can't refund, the credit card can't refund, the only person who can is Dwight...

      I have a different view on this now that I upgraded my phone. The suction pads do not work well with an iPhone 5S, and I think that may also be a large part of why the iPad has issues. My 4S worked great because the back was just glass, but with the textured metal it doesn't want to grip. With the two devices I want to use the stand with, it works with neither.

      I do feel bad for everybody who hasn't gotten theirs yet, I think I only received mine because I raised hell and called out the brodude who was running the facebook page.
