Product Description
The On-Stage MSA5000 is a versatile solution to incorporate laptops, tablets, and other electronics into stage or studio rigs. It saves valuable desktop space at workstations and allows users to leave bulky trap stands at home for a cleaner stage. Unique to the MSA5000 is its 5/8"-27 threaded adapter, allowing it to be mounted to straight microphone stands. It is also compatible with the On-Stage Stands KS9102 Quantum Core Column Keyboard Stand, along with the KSA7575 and KSA7575+ Mic Attachment Bars for X-frame keyboard stands. The tray of the MSA5000 is 10 deep with an adjustable width from 14" -16.5". Ventilation slots provide air circulation to keep laptops cool, while rear, side, and front tabs keep the device safely in place. These same features make the MSA5000 ideal for small mixers, samplers, recorders, and other devices as well. CAUTION: DO NOT USE with booms, goosenecks or other cantilevered supports

    5Not as stable as a dedicated stand, but more compact and cost-effective in some circumstances
    By Mike Tarrani
    I purchased this stand as an alternative and more convenient mixer mount than the Samson LTS50 Laptop Stand that is a permanent fixture in my home studio. For gigs this is not only less expensive, but easier to fit on small stages.

    The disadvantages are it's not as stable when sitting atop a microphone stand, and it is not tiltable. I resolved the last issue by purchasing an On Stage MSA9501 Posi-Lok Clutch. This easily accommodates my Mackie Mix Series Mix12FX 12-Channel Effects Mixer, as well as my ThinkPad T61 laptop when I need to use that in my rehearsal space.

    However, on stage use is where this mount excels. It takes up an incredibly small space when affixed to a round base mic stand, and is even more stable with a tripod style stand. Of course those defeat the small footprint advantage, but if you have the room, this mount and one of those stands are still less expensive than the Samson LTS50 or similar.

    Bottom line: this is well designed and constructed. You are only limited by the stability of the stand on which you plan to mount it. It has proven to be a real convenience for me, and a lot easier on my budget than purchasing another LTS50 since I had extra mic stands laying around.

    5Outstanding buy!
    By Clint
    Excellent quality, made of steel. It looks just as shown in the photos. It arrived packaged well with the knobs and brackets in a plastic bag.

    It measures 10 ¼ x 13 3/4” and weighs 2 lbs. 5 3/8 oz. It does have a small boss on the back that is threaded 5/8” 27. So I ordered an adapter, http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001H5OSCI?redirect=true&ref_=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_59 , to to fit a 3/8” thread. Now I can easily use it with a tripod or using a photography umbrella adapter on a light stand. I put it on a light stand with an Acer Aspire R13 laptop (excellent fit) and it works very well.

    The alternatives were aluminum $100-$210 tables and with their adapters, the weight equals out. The small boss on the back makes it possible to insert this with the laptop in my laptop bag! Another plus over the alternatives.

    2Disappointing
    By Marc Hertzberg
    Wow, lots of problems with this item.

    The tabs in the back don't come up high enough. My laptop has rubber bumpers it sits on and these make the rear tabs almost ineffective. They seem as likely to damage my laptop as protect it. Their location isn't adjustable so they can cover I/O ports.

    The tabs in the front are quite poorly designed. They flop around, making them hard to try to adjust (what adjustment there is, which ain't much). They also don't come up high enough to secure my laptop and I'm afraid they may damage it.

    The side adjustments are decent.

    The piece that the mic stand screws into seems solidly welded. But having a laptop screwed to the top of a mic stand is a disaster waiting to happen. Top heavy and way to easy to knock over by accident. Just the thought gIves me a bad feeling in my belly.
