I just wanted to post a quick review of the Stand that I mentioned in the Hard Shell Case Review & Giveaway post. Speaking of which, you only have until 11:59pm tonight to enter the contest, so you’d better hop on over there and comment to enter.

I got this at the same time as the cases, and have been using it pretty consistently since. Like I originally said, when I ordered it, I guess I didn’t read the product description well enough because I thought it was made of hard plastic, when in fact it is made of high graded aluminum, which makes it super durable as well as super lightweight.
I’ll be honest with you, there are much less expensive options out there, if you’re just looking to hold your iPad up. In fact, I’d been pretty happy using a $1 iPad Stand as suggested by RoryPiper, which worked just fine for me for a long while.
However, I was looking for something more sturdy, something specifically built for the iPad, and something that I could use in multiple positions. I found this.
While the price tag is high ($24.99 USD + $2.99 USD Shipping), it’s absolutely worth it for the quality of product. If you need something sturdy, and perfectly-fitting to the iPad, this will do it. While there are a couple drawbacks; a little awkwardly shaped for travel, can’t use with a case, and there’s no way to use the iPad in portrait in the dock (although this is not a problem for me, as I use Landscape 99% of the time), the benefits outweigh the flaws.
