Admittedly it’s not usually that easy to get excited about stands, but trust me this one – dubbed the All New Z3 – is pretty good. It comes from a company with the unfortunate name of RAT Stands who are probably best known for their high end music stands (they supply Abbey Road Music Studios).
I tested their last iPad stand (the Z3) and loved it so much I didn’t want to give it back. You could adjust the height of the stand, fold it up flat and it was super sturdy. My only complaints were that it was quite expensive and it was a little tricky to angle for viewing.
Anyway, they’ve now come up with a new model which, at £132, is actually a little cheaper than the last model (though without compromising build quality at all) and a new locking mechanism which means that the iPad is held firmly on to the stand (it is compatible with all versions). Best of all is that it now offers 360 degree rotation and tilt. Bingo!
