Ergotech VersaStand for iPad

The Good The lightweight, flexible Ergotech VersaStand makes it easy to snap an iPad in and out. Plus, its construction means you get a free back cover in the box.

The Bad The metal attachment on the iPad back cover is a little thick and protruding.

The Bottom Line Portable, flexible, and very useful all describe the VersaStand for the iPad, one of the best iPad desk accessories we've ever seen.

Best iPad desktop accessory yet

If you think of the iPad as a computer screen, and you use it that way, sooner or later you're going to want to find a way to get it to sit on your desk properly.

A Smart Cover or a little dock can hold it upright, but usually at only one angle. A case, maybe a few angles. The VersaStand is a full-on bendable multiangle armature for the iPad that turns Apple's tablet into the closest thing to a desk computer accessory that I've ever seen.

The VersaStand by Ergotech feels so simple and useful, I wonder why we don't see it more. It's an iPad stand, made with several flexible joints, out of industrial Mac- or iPad-colored aluminum. It's surprisingly reasonably priced, too, at $79 to $99 from the few online vendors we've seen carrying it so far.
