Ok I went to the mall tonight and tried my IPAD in the store with a few new stands with my rubber case on the outside or small nicks and w.e ...out of about 10 I saw, i like the Griffin Stand...which 1 do you have and your thoughts. I know i might sound a little gay here, but I broke the one in brookstone...hahha that little wodden one. (PS Its garbage) ...

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'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.)

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.
