      So...I can't get my iPad to stick to this at all. Was there a bad batch? I hear some magnets didn't work? How do we go about requesting a replacement? I live in Portland...not hard to come by.

      I received my replacement stands in the mail today and they are far superior than the set I initially received. This set is much more stable - no wobbling or spinning this time. Thank you for standing behind your product!

      Hi guys, I received my stand the other day and I am extremely happy! Works perfectly and is way cooler than I initially anticipate!. Thanks so much for your hard work!

      Did you read my email? I cannot use FACET.

      I got my order today and was initially disappointed. Turns out the problem was me. I really like it and think you did a great job. Thanks.

      January 4th, 2013 ... and I am still waiting for my FACETs, any news? I have asked twice if I can be provided with a shipping tracking number to see where is it, but no answers yet.

      Creator iLoveHandles on December 29, 2012

      @Yukihisa send us an email at info@ilovehandles.com for customer support. It shouldn't slip like that.

      Today, I received FACET in Japan. Thank you! I tried it at once.
      Though, I do not understand the reason, power of a weak magnet or surface of luster, but iPad does not attach safety. And, iPad has slid down twice on the floor.
      55° comes off immediately. Next is 75°. 35° seems to be all right. I am worried about a little bit using it. I think that the mat finish such as the base of FACET was hard to slip.
      .
      I thought that I could not use it in the edge of table. I think about whether I shall make a nail in Sugru so that iPad does not slide down now.
      .
      However, FACET is a beautiful shape! I want to look at the product made in aluminum of this sometime.

      Got my order in today. Because I'm a retailer I have to make sure I like it before I can sell it on my website. So I went to Best Buy to try it out on the iPad because I don't own one. And it worked just fine, and I had a few people looking over my shoulder checking out the Facet. Good job guys. 2 Thumbs up... Chris @ www.BiteMyApple.co

      Creator iLoveHandles on December 20, 2012

      @Rob FACET should be able to swivel a little so you can turn it if needed, but we took great pains to make it heavy enough so it wouldn't move too much and would feel substantial on your desk. And the bottom surface should definitely be level. Please contact us at info@ilovehandles.com and we'll get it resolved for you.

    16. Missing_small

      Creator Rob on December 20, 2012

      Just received my FACET and I'm definitely disappointed. I received two stands, and fortunately the magnets on work on both. That said, the big problem is that the bottom surface isn't level, so my stands wabble and spin on my desk. The FACET might work better on a bed or sofa, but this is not a great stand for desks. Is this part of the design, or do I have two defective units?

    17. Ilh-heart.small

      Creator iLoveHandles on December 18, 2012

      @Sandy Please contact us at info@ilovehandles.com and we'll figure out what's going on. There were some defective units that went out with the first batch and we are anxious to get this resolved. It should definitely work with iPad 3 on all three sides.

    18. Missing_small

      Creator Sandy Santra on December 18, 2012

      Just received mine. It doesn't work. On one side, it stays...as long as you don't touch or breathe on the iPad. But it will not stay in position on either of the other two sides. It slides right off—right away!

      Is this product supposed to be only for the Mini? Maybe I'm missing something.

      I'll be asking for a refund based on the fact that it does not work at all as advertised; and really, it doesn't work at all on that one side, even (with any stability). I don't understand how other people are posting that it's fine. Do the back of their iPads have sticky glue on them?

      Plus: worst packaging I've seen in years: a cardboard box with a piece of foam. Product was flopping around underneath the foam in the box when received. Product says: "Oh, yeah, I see you cut out a triangular cubic area in the foam. Well, news flash: I'm going to ignore that and flop around in the bottom of the box."

      My product was also scratched on arrival.

      But seriously: every video, every press release, EVERYTHING said it would work on ALL THREE SIDES. It doesn't!!! Is this because I have an iPad 3? Well, that was the latest iPad released, if memory serves, when this Kickstarter project started.

      Very unhappy camper.

      Rich and Avik, I do not understand how you can state in print here that the product works with the iPad 3 and 4. I can envision that maybe it works with the Mini, because it's much lighter. But I cannot fathom the disconnect between your marketing promises and the actual product itself.

      Hi everyone,

      We are planning on shipping the first week of December. It's taken a little longer than expected, but we are really excited about the resulting product. We will send a survey on Tuesday.

      We are also excited that FACET works with the 4th generation iPad as well as the iPad Mini!

      Thank you all for your support and patience. We're trying to get them out just as soon as we can.

      Best,
      Rich and Avik

      Hi there, anything new on the survey or shipping? Haven't heard anything about either, getting a little worried since you promised an update and survey a few weeks ago.

      Let us know!

      Creator Rob on November 25, 2012

      Hi, we have not heard from the team since the beginning of the month. Any updates? Thanks.

      @Chris We are posting another official update tomorrow, but we are planning to ship by the end of the month.

    32. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Lloyd Sherman on October 30, 2012

      Yes the smart case. Ok not a problem. Looking forward to the product.

    33. Ilh-heart.small

      Creator iLoveHandles on October 30, 2012

      @Lloyd - Do you mean the Smart Case? If so, that covers the magnets, so you would need to take it off to use FACET.

    34. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Lloyd Sherman on October 28, 2012

      Will it work with the full wraparound Apple case?

      Hi everyone, the wheels are in motion. We will have an official update in the next day or two. We are excited that Apple kept the magnets in the new iPad and even has magnets in the iPad mini. Stay tuned...

      FACET is made of ABS plastic and all of the edges have been ever so slightly rounded. It will not scratch the aluminum finish of the iPad.
