Thumbs up $0.99 iPad stand.. works perfect!!

Believe it or not this holds the iPad perfectly in either orientation. It's quite stable and perfectly priced!!

Get yours at Staples: here!

I thought this was going to be a joke thread. Like, use an office binder clip as an iPad stand. That's kind of cool, though.

thank you the heads up.

I was just on my way to Best Buy to buy a cd and Staples is right next door.

Love it!

My dock arrived today but only holds the unit in portrait mode.

I'll stop by Staples on the way home and do some investigative work.

I don't have a Staples nearby but this looks similar and is even cheaper.

Looks like it works perfectly!
If I hadn't fractured my leg a couple days ago I'd go out and pick one up

I guess I can add it to the list of things my wife needs to pick up

I'm so getting one if they have them in store. How heavy is the thing? I don't want my iPad to go falling over the side of my desk or something.

Yes, from the DVD using Handbreak. Fills the screen perfectly. : )

Surprisingly it is quite stable. If you are going to use it on a desk (and keep it mostly in one place) you could use some double stick tape under it to keep it positioned on the desk, especially if you plan to type or do something other than watch videos.

The thickness of the iPad fits nicely in the space without feeling like it is going to slip out, plus it is wide enough that it is not going to tip side to side. I don't know about with the Apple case, probably too thick.

If you are worried, guess you could use some scotch double sided tape (the thin style) inside...?

I just stopped by Office Depot to check it out. I have the Apple case, and it didn't feel sturdy enough for me. Close, but not quite.
