iPad desk stand

Hi, I use an iPad 3 to read my ebooks and I would like to buy a desk stand.

The ideal stand should adjust to different angles and should not wobble while typing.

As you can imagine there are a huge number of tablet stands on the market. Just to list a few of them:

Rain Design iSlider

Belkin Flipblade Adjust

Griffin A-Frame

JustMobile Encore

iKlip Studio


What stand do you use (if any)? What are your suggestions?

Thanks

I use the Belkin Flipblade Adjust with my iPad 3 in landscape. It is stable and doesn't wobble. It is the only one I've used so I cannot compare it to the others. I like mine and use it every day.

I have a leather sleeve for my iPad with a foldable cover. Wen I'm home I use a Belkin Fipblade. I like it because I can put the iPad with its sleeve on, either in landscape or portrait modes. I can type on it but it's not a very comfortable position and it doesn't feel very stable.

I use the Logitech Ultraslim Keyboard cover (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007PRHNHO ). The slot for a stand is fixed at only one angle but it works for me. It fits in portrait mode but only 'locks' together magnetically in landscape mode.

We use a $3-4 mini art easel from JoAnne Fabrics-- they're wonderful. Adjustable, foldable, easily moved around, etc. It also supports the iPad (big guy with heavy case) in both landscape and portrait. Now, it's not as sturdy as some stands, but at $3, it's well worth a try.

The one caveat with any stand is that if the lower edge of your i-device (or any device) is exposed, the stand can scratch that edge. Even the polycarbonate, mini-easels can do that. However, it's easy enough to prevent with a piece of electrical tape.

I use the same thing for my tablets (Nexus 7, Toshiba Excite 7.7, HP TouchPad, iPad 3/4 in folio case, TF700T in folio case). The stand is surprisingly stable even with the heavier tablets (the TF700T in folio case is almost 1kg) but I do need to take care and tap lightly with the heavy tablets. The areas that touch the device are padded so it's unlikely to scruff your devices. It also has padding on the base so it's fairly skid resistant. Overall, a pretty decent stand for $5.

I've tried a lot, and the best IMO, is the Native Union Gripster. I have never been in a situation where I could not get a comfortable position since I got it. Several people I know have gotten this case after seeing mine and they all love it.
Here's an article about all the holders/stands I have tried: http://www.geekintheforest.com/ipad-holders/

I have the black Stabile Pro for the iPad 2, and the IPM-10 for the iPad Mini. Both stands are fantastic! Made in the USA, fast shipping and excellent customer service.

And expensive, I might add.

And with such a high center of gravity I suspect it is easy to knock over.

No, I was directed here from another site. I am looking for a stand, holder to mount my iPad on our boat.
