I have had four iPads (orig. iPad, iPad2, new iPad and iPad mini) since they were introduced. With each I’ve been challenged to find a stand that is sturdy, versatile and convenient. At Macworld/iWorld 2013, I found a very satisfying solution.
This amazing VersaStand desk stand folds down to less than 1″ thick and weighs slightly less than one pound. It may well be the most portable, stowable, versatile solution ever created for use with the iPad. The VersaStand has a quick connect and disconnect feature that allows me to use the it with other members of the Ergotech family.
I’ve been very impressed by this stand’s secure stability, and how it displays my iPad at optimal ergonomic, glare-free viewing angles. The VersaStand features 360 degree rotation for portrait and landscape viewing. This portable iPad stand is easy to fold and transport, stowable for mobile professionals and students, and uses a fully-articulating arm which simplifies still photography, video, Skype,and FaceTime apps. The anodized aluminum finish matches the iPad coloring too, and the polycarbonate back cover snaps on very securely.
This has been a handy way to carry this sturdy stand with me. I’m looking forward to the release of the iPad mini mounting back (to be sold separately) so I can attach it to my existing stand. Everyone I’ve shown it to has marveled at its simplicity, utility and beauty (yeah, the would like to “borrow” mine too).
Its also nice to be able to display my iPad using the Versacase with the Surface Mount. Whether I want to mount to my kitchen cabinet, any wall, or a desk surface, this fixed solution is perfect for home and office. It has all the versatility of the stand.
