Maclove Titan iPad Stand ReviewThe Maclove Titan is an iPad stand that is simplistic yet the best looking iPad stand out there in my opinion. It is designed to hold your iPad securely in either Portrait or Landscape orientation for easy viewing.

The stand can also be rotated easily to quickly switch between Portrait and Landscape view.

The first word that came out of my mouth when I looked at the Titan’s screenshot and the product when I unboxed the packaging was “Wow!”. It looks sexy and very sleek in the design department. The Titan doesn’t have complicated textures or extra features that you can throw in on an iPad stand. It’s simply.. a beautiful stand. The design is very minimalist but at the same time gives a modern look. In fact, it actually makes my iPad looks better somehow when I put it on the Titan.

The initial set-up requires you to screw the “M” piece with the stand but it was a no brainer. You had to pick the position/angle of the stand when you put the 2 pieces together though. As such, if you require a different angle position, you have to loosen the screw, move the “M” piece up or down, and tighten the screw again. It can be troublesome if you want to change your view angle frequently.

Once the pieces are in, you can rotates the stand horizontally or vertically (clock wise and counter clock wise) without having to touch the screw mechanism anymore. The Maclove Titan makes it easy if you ever want to switch between reading an e-book to watching a movie, for example. My previous unboxing video shows this clearly:

The Maclove Titan is made from light-weight Aluminium, so it is very sturdy on my computer desk. It’s also very light-weight so I tend to move it around my house often with my iPad on it.

Most of the time it will sit on my computer table so I can play games on it while doing some blogging work on my desktop computer.

Around midnight, the Titan will be on my bedside table so I can do some reading on my iPad or listen to some music while I’m lying down on the bed.

If I ever need to do “number 2″, the Titan will be on top of the bathroom cabinet, next to my toilet bowl so I can play some games while doing “the thing”.

Haven’t done this yet but if I ever decide to do some cooking, I’m going to bring it to my kitchen table with the Epicurious app open for some new nice recipes.

Although this is possible with all the iPad stand that you can think of out there, the Titan is so light weight even with the iPad on it that it actually encourages you to move it around without having to take the iPad out. It also provides the best experience so far from an iPad stand. It’s like having your personal wireless computer console on a high-tech environment. I can imagine this stand being used on mini market or small shop counters.

The process of putting your iPad on the Maclove Titan is also very simple. The Titan has four rubber corners to hold the iPad firmly without scratching the iPad corners.

It's sturdy enough to make me dare doing this

What you need to do is position the iPad bottom corners on the Titan bottom parts and then simply do a gentle push on the top to fit in the other 2 top corners. It is that simple! It only takes less than 3 seconds to “dock” and “undock” your iPad on the Titan.

Maclove Titan iPad Stand Review Conclusion

Titan iPad Stand Review -Conclusion

The Maclove Titan is an excellent iPad stand in terms of quality, looks, and usability. It is instantaneous to put the iPad on, light enough to carry it around your house even with the iPad on, and durable because of the Aluminium material. The only thing that Titan is missing is probably a built-in charger for your iPad while it’s on the stand :)

As for the cons, you can’t change the viewing angle quickly and it does get a bit wobbly when you interact with your iPad on the stand if you press it with force.

You’ll definitely experience love at first sight with the Maclove Titan! The major drawback is probably the price. It is retail at AU$129 by the time this review was written but currently slashed to AU$69 at iGoodies.com.au). If you don’t mind spending some money for your iPad though, the Maclove Titan is one of the best iPad stand you can find at the moment. If you have 5 iPad and 5 Maclove Titan at home, put one of each in every room and enjoy the best technology experience ever :D

    That looks so cool. It will fit perfectly next to my Griffin Mac stand that has a similar design.

    Not sure I would use the Titan stand when cooking – could be hard not to spill stuff on the iPad if the cooking gets “violent” :)

      So you are buying one? :D

      Hahah yeah, I know what you mean. Some even put a velcro and stick the iPad on the kitchen cabinet..err no thanks, I guess

      If I ever gonna do it, I’ll probably put it on the other kitchen table, quite away from the stove, just in case my cooking session goes wrong lol

    Nah I don’t think I’ll buy one. I already have a flip-over case for mine that also works as a stand and I have a Snugg case coming too. Not sure how iPad will fit on the Titan stand if it’s in a case.

    But if I had a routine where iPad would fit well in a stand like this, I would certainly get it. Right now, I prefer to use it in my hands and with the built-in case stand.

    This guy bought velcro, btw: iPad must have accessories.

    Great review mate…

    I don’t have iPad. So, this stand is not useful for me :)
