Anyone seen this Aluminium Stand before?

http://www.oddsandpods.co.uk/apple-i...ack=googlebase

Its just about what i'd want to have for a stand, but i'm wondering if anyone if anyone else has this? i've been looking round but found no reviews.
Now, its similar to the LUXA2 H4 Stand:
http://www.luxa2.com/media_detail.aspx?s=26

But, and i may be speaking for the small silent majority, but i dont like the 6 small holders to hold it in place. I can imagine trying to type from a Bluetooth keyboard and they'd just annoy me lol. The Aluminium stand doesn't have these, but, this stand can be highered or lowered.

Just wanted to see if anyone knew of that stand, and, as a bonus at all, their experiences with the H4 stand?

Thanks.

I wonder if that odds and pods stand will be available in the US and I also wonder just how adjustable the angle really is?

I like this one better than the Luxa with all those pegs protruding.

Nice find!

I'm glad i'm not the only one!
I can't find anything on it, no YouTube videos, nothing on Flickr, so there's no way to tell.. unless i take a punt and purchase it..

It's a lot nicer looking than the Luxa in my opinion as well. I'll be interested to see if it's eventually carried elsewhere.

Your avatar sometimes makes me do a double take.

If I see it out of the corner of my eye, it looks like something is moving on my screen. Startled me more than once.

Thanks.

That looks like a very nice stand indeed... Great price, and it's pretty darn sexy 8]

I'll see how the included plastic stand with my switcheasy nude plays out first 8]

Not completely sure, but i think i've found it...
http://www.ilounge.com/index.php/rev...ad-iphone-3gs/

Maclove Titan holder?

its official page is here:
http://www.macloveworld.com/#_TT

But i could be wrong, i think the bolt to hold it is different from the Odds and Pods site.

Hi, just thought I'd add to this. I saw your comments and I bought this iPad rotating stand from Oddsandpods. Shjown here: http://www.oddsandpods.co.uk/apple-i...ket-p-805.html

I am in the UK and delivery took 2 days. I am very pleased with this and cant fault the product for 20 or the company. It looks great on my desk and is built very well.

Hard to think it's worth a stand for the iPad...I think rarely will something like this be needed.

Sorry, don't want to argue on my first post but you may rarely have a use but I use it every day. Bought it a couple of weeks ago and I adore it. Watching films in bed and using it when I type emails or messages.

The fit is excellent. Used this site a few times since I bought it, not sure how they are so cheap but genuine apple products on there as well. I don't ask questions, it's probably robbed!

The stand itself looks pretty damn good as well and much better than the ****** dock that wobbles every time you touch the screen and can only do portrait.

As AndyLpool said, perhaps you wouldn't use it, but many others will. To date, I have three different stands for the iPad, and it's in one or the other many times a day. While I love being able to just carry it about handheld, for any serious work, it's often more useful to have it propped at various heights or angles. For our household, I can see using something like this as a semi-permanent installation in my kitchen, where we often use an iPad for apps like Epicurious.

This is so different from the Luxa. The Luxa can be used with cases and even other similarily sized products. Totally swivels all over the place whereas this one will tilt a bit but one must tighten a screw?

I love my Luxa h4.

This can swivel and tilt as well. You just move it to landscape or portrait and can easily change the angles. No need to touch any screws.

Not so bothered about the case thing, I never use a case for mine, just a padded wallet. I hate cases on iphones or ipads, I prefer to see them in all their glory.

What is more important in a stand?

Loads of angles, features, etc but cumbersome, heavy & expensive

OR

Simple operation, one angle, etc but Lightweight, quick in-out & cheap?

p.s. My kids use my iPad and stand every day...
