    Which Griffin, the A Stand? The A Stand is pretty cool, but I like the Compass by Twelve South better because it's sturdy, has 2 angles, can hold an iPad inside of a case, but most of all, it's portable (it can fold up like a pair of scissors). I also like the Elago stand, but it's not portable and it only supports 1 angle.

    I like the compass as well. There's a ton of stuff out there though.

    I'll third the TwelveSouth Compass. Splendid design and ergonomics - if you plan to get one, you can also shop around for vendors who're offering discounts or coupon codes. I got mine 20% off plus free shipping.

    I don't think you could use your pad in the case with the first one you listed. I think the other would be fine. Personally, I have the compass design stand and I love it. I can put the pad in either landscape or portrait and at any number of angles.

    The other factor with the Compass is its portability - you can fold it up and take it with you in a bag without taking up too much volume (with the added bonus of befuddling TSA officers at airports.)

    Personally I've always preferred the look of Just Mobile's UpStand.
    Just seems more appleish.

    That's a little pricey. I also like being able to put my iPad in the stand with a case on. I don't think you could do that very well with the upstand.

    I just simply have the Targus Truss case which doubles as a stand. Only caveat is that it only operates as a stand in landscape and not portrait. However, I have found when I am using the stand, it ends up being easier in landscape mode anyway.

    I have been using the TwelveSouth Compass stand for just over a month. I have to say it is as solid as a rock and as portable as a set of chop sticks.

    There are many types of iPad stands, some cheap and simple, some complex and expensive and some are iPad cases with multi function use, including acting like a stand when folded correctly. But I recommend this one: Buy.com - 360 degrees Rotation Steel Stand Holder Mount for Apple iPad , put it on a table just like a monitor
    while you type on an external keyboard!

    Love that stand from Buy.com!!!! I have a case that acts as a stand when in landscape mode but that one sitting on the table and being able to rotate landscape/portrait is just ideal!

    Pity I am in UK!!!!

    I've been using the compass stand from TwelveSouth for about 3 weeks now and I cannot be happier. Its portable and very study and it looks awesome.
