The Newer Technology GripBase / GripStand bundle is a very versatile unit that allows you to comfortably hold your iPad 2, prop it on your desk and even use it in your car to view content. Adding a Bluetooth keyboard and using the included base turns your iPad into a useful minicomputer for comfortably writing emails or surfing the web. The only thing I need in my very specialized application is a way to mount the system to a couch.
Aside from all of the mounting options the system also offers a certain level of protection for your iPad 2 as well. The gel like rubber that holds your iPad 2 in place also protects against shock. Without special testing equipment we can't give you a shock value for an iPad 2 with and without the holder, but it's easy to determine from the construction and feel that the holder would buffer a direct hit or in most cases a drop.
At just $37.99 from Macsales.com the bundle is good value considering everything that is included and the options it offers. At this point I couldn't imagine having my iPad 2 without the NuGuard system. Without either of the attachments the holder is a seamless extension of the iPad 2, one that you don't even notice since it doesn't add a significant amount of weight or bulk. The hand grip add-on doesn't do much for me since I don't walk around with the iPad 2 very often. It does make for an easy way to prop the iPad 2 up on the outside patio table.
The base accessory is bulkier than the stand and less portable. It does offer a wide range of viewing options. In the high position the iPad 2 is nearly eye level when sitting on a standard computer desk. The swivel built into the desk base station can be a bit of a pain when using the touch screen, but a keyboard takes care of that.
NewerTech includes a one year warranty and a 30-Day no risk, no hassle money back guarantee. If you purchase one I highly doubt you would return it for lack of features.
