This is a discussion on Great looking IPAD stand by Twelve South within the iPad Accessories for iPAD 1, 2 and 3 forums, part of the Apple iPad Discussions category; Originally Posted by newfmp3 Ok, I officially hate this thing.

can you put this in a lower position without it tipping over from the weight of the ipad so you don't have to reach up so high to type and if you can put it in a lower position is the flexible arm strong enough to support the iPad without it drooping??
I picked one of these up a couple of weeks ago. I needed something for school that would hold my iPad in the landscape position, almost vertical. I then use the Apple Bluetooth keyboard for typing.
My big motivator was the fact that it folds up into a small foot print. The stand works great. I have not issues using it in this configuration.
I would buy another one, that is if this thing ever needs replacing.
Great product, killer styling, and sells at a fair price.
I was looking for a stand and just found this thread... I ended up ordering a SnakeClamp... Worth checking out and great customer service.
My two cents...
So many options for iPad stands I can't decide =/
I also have the Compass - works great for me in conjunction with the Bluetooth keyboard. It was one of the few that I found that allows me stand up the iPad with my case on. Agreed it's not as stable as it could be, but better than my case when I use it as a stand. I also have the Griffin one, but the angle is a little steep for me when I'm working. Fine for viewing though.
For me, the selling point of the Compass was its portability: it folds up and you can pack it anywhere to bring along.
Good point on the portability!! That was one of the key reasons I bought it:-) I've actually been starting to use my iPad at work a fair amount for certain things. I've also been kinda eying the cases with the integrated keyboards, but in my area, they don't really stock them and I really would prefer to see in person before buying. Reviews are one thing, but nothing like picking up the real thing:-)
