NewerTech NuGuard GripStand 2
Macsales.com is offering the NuGuard GripStand 2 and GripBase together as a bundle. At the time of writing this package was available for $37.99. The standard price is $59.90, so the sale price offers significant savings.
The NuGuard GripStand 2 acts as the base for the bundle system and is available on its own for $23.99. The GripStand 2 is available in either black or white. This is a dual purpose system that can be used to prop your iPad 2 up on a desk or you can use the circular hook to hold your iPad 2 in hand.
The wrap around case grips your iPad 2 firmly with a gel like rubber. Before deploying the system for use in the house I held the iPad upside down while in the case and with the handle, then shook the unit violently over the couch to make sure the iPad wouldn't fall out even under this extreme of a test. The iPad 2 held in place just fine without even a slip or corner sliding out of place.
Attaching the included grip is quite easy. The two gray tabs on the side slide into the round ring in the middle of the iPad holder piece. You can position the grip in four different positions at 90 degree intervals. There is a positive stop lock at each position and you have to press the two gray tabs to move from one position to another. This allows you to move the iPad from landscape and portrait positions easily.
On its own the GripStand 2 does a good job holding an iPad 2 in place on your solid surface desk or workbench. Again, you can position the system in landscape or portrait positions, but the iPad is resting on the desk, so you'll have to look down on the unit. For casual use this is fine, but for power iPad users this could be an issue.
