Suprise Extra Usage
I laid down for a nap and left my Thai Pad @ the foot of my bed so I rested my swollen feet on it and Oh My Goodness!! What a pleasant surprise, the pad was so good 4 my feet!!

I purchased the Pad for my daughter for Mother's Day for my grandsons to present to her. There hasn't been one day that my daughter has not used the pad!! It is useful as well as beautifully made and she likes it very much

I wasn't sure how much I needed this but I thought it looked like a nice idea. It turns out I was right. I use it for my iPad. I never thought I was having any issues handling my iPad in bed, but now I know...having a lovely (and quite small) silk pillow to prop it up is a simple, very nice luxury.

Love but wears thin in areas
I love my purple Thai pad and use it is daily to read books and for use with my tablet. I have taken it with me when traveling. It is a perfect piece of equipment and I love the bookmark tassels. My problem with the Thai pad is that it wears out in the lower right corner where my hand/writs cause pressure points and friction from turning pages or regular functionality when using my tablet, etc. I have about a 1 inch split in the fabric and this is my second time stitching it. The silk wears thin and frays...if this does not hold I may consider purchasing the product again. The manufacturer needs to do a better job reinforcing the fabric in the wrist area along with the bookmark tassels (mine fell off but I've tucked the bookmark into the side pocket). I have recommended this item to several family members and friends who have purchased it. I hope they do not experiencing the same issues I have encountered. In spite of my issues, I still use it....

I love it!
I bought this as an early Christmas present for myself and was delighted when it arrived. I use it to read in bed and it accomodates any size book. I bought the one in blue/green silk and the fabric is lovely. It is lighweight, but does the job.

I tried several other book-iPad support systems, and this one is my favorite! I use it in bed to read books or electronic reader. I love the way it folds, it is a solid base so no tipping over.
Suggestion: Add an elastic strap across the top of the pyramid to hold books open.

Changed Review from Elouise
Just want to update my review. Levenger called me to make things "right", which was great and appreciated. In the meantime, I started liking the Thai Pad. I think you just have to figure out how to put the iPad on there. Now, I don't want to send it back.

iPad kept falling off of Thai Pad
I bought the Thai pad for my sister-in-law, but I decided to try it out for myself. I was so disappointed. I used it to watch a movie on the iPad (with the iPad set up horizontally). The iPad constantly fell off of the Thai pad. I’m not giving it to my sister-in-law, and if I have time, I’m going to send the one I purchased back to Levenger. I’m a fan of Levenger, but not the Thai pad.

Tai Pad is a no Pad
Not for me..I find it cumbersome and have not used it in a long time. It's in my drawer. I am a bed reader and find it not comfortable at all. I would not recommend. Love Levenger, but not this!

THis is the second Thai Pad I have ordered for my 97 year old mother. She loves it for reading in bed and in her chair but the first one lasted less that 6 months before the silk began to wear. It is now in very bad shape. Levenger products are usually a much better quality. I admire your intention in helping people who make this product, but I do hope you could come up with more durable fabric.
