This review is of the Logitech speaker stand for the ipad. Price comes in at around £50 from stores such as Curry's, Comet, PC World plus online sites www.Amazon.co.uk and www.Ebay.co.uk
This may seem like a lot to pay for an ipad stand, but for me it was worth the extra.
&&&& THE VITAL STATISTICS &&&&
THE STAND IS - 7inchs in length, 6inchs wide and 1inch tall.
HIEGHT OVERALL IS - With the stand and ipad in an upright position overall height is 12inchs.
&&&& SO IS IT WORTH THE EXTRA CASH &&&&
The ipad is gently slotted into place and docks onto the charger slot, and is enclosed in the stand with two push clips which slot around it snuggly. You don't need to push these to get the ipad in, but removing it just gently push if needed and slide the pad out. I do feel that getting the ipad out is slightly more difficult than inserting it, but easy once completed a couple of times and at least I know it is secure.
The stand has a cross fitment to which your ipad leans against ensuring it is well enclosed. Against the back of the stand, your ipad leans up against a partly soft stem running horizontal and vertically so as not to scratch the back casing.
On the bottom of the stand is four round soft spots so as not to damage furniture it is placed upon.
In my experience I have had no scratches to the ipad or to furniture so I believe that it works very well.
With the stand you can place your ipad inside safely and then put the base anywhere in the kitchen in your living room, bedroom, it doesn't matter where really as there are no cables attached unless you are charging it up.
I can safely place my stand on the side without it falling over and it is light enough to pick up with on hand.
The ipad once in it's stand twists so the ipad is horizontal or vertical and clicks into place so no wobbling.
Here you can also adjust the tilt angle position into virtually upright or right on it's back so you reduce glare wherever you are inside or out.
Charging by means of an electric cable to your plug socket which is included, so you could charge your ipad whilst watching or leave it to charge on it's own.
Volume control is easy with a plus or minus button either side of the on/off button, all located conveniently on the front of the stand. This gives you a clear concise stereo sound, which is ideal for watching TV or movies on the ipad.
The volume is good and provides more than sufficient levels, for me at full it is far to load! I have it at less than half way to listen to programs.
At the back of the stand is the hole for the charger and any other items you may want to attach like headphones. I have only used headphones with this as I have watched something whilst the television is also on, it worked well, but in part that would depend on your headphones.
