    Hi, Just want to point out that GroovyStand have a new model called "Writer"
    It is nice and small and is very stable for typing in portrait or landscape. Very inexpensive also. http://www.groovystand.com

    I'm just not seeing groovy in this stand. No offense, just not to my liking. Looks like someone just really wanted to get something out there to sell as fast as possible. QVC anyone?

    Well, you may not like it...

    But you do realize that the term groovy is double meaning, meaning that the method of standing the device, is the groove cut into the simple base...?

    Don't assume other people will not like it.
    Especially if you want a stand at work, and home, and bed, and to carry with you. The cheap, simple ones, like the business card holder, and this, and document holders, are going to fill the bill really well.
    . . . even if you are going to buy one of the fancier, expensive ones also.

    I ordered one of the two groove writer ones. These look like one of few holders out there that would slip easily into a bag, with the pad..... I am a sucker for minimalist stuff.

    Hmm. Looks pretty nice for a table. Not sure it would be comfortable in someones lap. I like the multi angle stands though.

    How do you like it so far? I keep thinking about ordering one, but I'm just not sure if it's what I'm looking for.

    It's groovy. Has a good beat and I can dance to it! - LOL.

    I actually like the ability to just toss it in a bag and be on your way. Thanks for posting.

    Will these work with a case on the iPad? How tightly does it fit in sans case?

    I wouldn't use one for typing. A prolonged use will dent the back side where the top of the groove contacts the back of the iPad. The proverbial lever effect.

    Worse, if something falls on top it'll just bend at that point possibly even cracking the screen. It would be better to have total back support instead of just edge support.

    I have not received it yet.... And that brings up my issues with the seller. The email I got from them said 5 days to ship, and 7-10 days for delivery. Wow, am I back in the pony express days? Just pick it up and send the little tihing by USPS Priority mail. I would have it it 2-3 days instead of 13-16 days. I thought about canceling the order, but could not find a way to cancel.....

    With the 5 days to ship it makes me think this person is making them as they are ordered, and does not even have an inventory. I have yet even to receive notice that it has shipped......

    Lesson learned....
