The iPad Floor Stand: I Want One of Those!

I own an iPad and one of the things on my wish list is a brand new iPad floor stand.

I absolutely love my iPad. It was a birthday gift from my brother sometime back and I am just as thrilled with it now as I was back then.

The thing is though, it can get a bit tiring carrying an iPad in your hands all the time. These things may look all sleek and slender, but they aren't the most comfortable to hold.

Now I've known about iPad table stands for a while, but I was never all that interested in getting one. Like many iPad owners, I tend to use my iPad a lot while lying down to read or watch a movie - a table stand isn't really going to do much to improve my viewing experience.

Now an actual floor stand... well they offer a lot more flexibility when it comes to going handsfree; whether you're lying in bed, standing doing the ironing, playing a musical instrument or slaving away over a hot stove. I'm really tuned in to concept of a floor stand for my tablet.

So I've done some research and narrowed my findings down to the best iPad floor stands, based on features and of course the all important consumer reviews.

Here's my list of the top 5 stands for your iPad.

Now here's a classy looking stand that you wouldn't want to be hiding in the corner of a room. It's one of those pieces that will blend well into any room. However, if you did want to tuck it out of the way it can be easily folded for storage purposes.

It's a lightweight stand, yet totally sturdy. The holder features slightly raised rubberized grips which not only help to keep your iPad securely locked in place, but offer additional protection from serious damage in the unlikely event of the stand falling over.

The extension arm is totally flexible so you'll have no trouble adjusting the stand to any position of your choice. And you'll be thankful for the built in USB extension which makes it really easy to leave the iPad in the stand while it's charging. Not having to remove your device from the stand every time you want to charge your iPad is definitely a big plus for those of us who like things real simple.

I suppose the biggest gripe about this iPad stand is the price; it's more than double the price of some of the other stands featured here. However, people who have bought the stand claim that the quality is so superior that it was worth paying the extra. it's certainly up there as one of the best iPad floor stands on the market.

Finally we come onto the Tower iPad Mount. It's touted as an all purpose tablet stand that will hold iPads and Kindles of varying sizes. It will even hold iPads in their folio cases.

Your iPad is held in place by rubber pads which is a good thing as it prevents your beloved tablet from being scratched. There's also functionality in the mount to allow you to position your device in multiple angles.

The shaft of the stand extends to a viewing height of 63-1/2" and you can tilt it at the base so you can draw the stand closer to you.

Out of the 5 iPad floor stands featured here, the Tower iPad Mount seems the least sophisticated. I'm not sold on the look of the stand and going through the reviews on Amazon, I'm just a bit concerned about the number of incidences of iPads coming free from the mount.

The manufacturers state that you need to adjust the bracket's grips when changing the position of your device in the mount, so as to avoid it 'slipping out'. Perhaps this advice wasn't adhered to by some? I'm not sure. I think for the price it's an OK stand and clearly there are some happy buyers.

This stand has been reduced in price too, so if it's a bargain you seek this might peak your interest. Just be sure to follow the manufacturers guidelines on the proper insertion of your device and you should be good to go.
