I Reviewed It, and My Father-In-Law Still Uses It: The Pro-Clip Multi-Stand for iPad 1


My Father-in-law Mark is a great guy, a good friend and an even better sport. 🙂

He is also a big-time iPad-user and loves the first generation iPad we picked up for him prior to his trip to China last year. (Actually it is his second iPad. What happened to the first one? It is a long, sad story for another time.)

A few months ago I swapped out the case he was using for the Pro-Clip Multi-Stand I had reviewed some time ago. Here’s the conclusion from my review:

What I Like: It’s made from high quality plastic that you can trust to hold your precious tablet; It can be used in landscape or portrait; The hinged arm on the back is perfect for carrying the iPad with one hand and allows the iPad to be held at pretty much any angle you might choose; Built into the hinged leg is a panel for hanging the iPad on the wall

What Needs Improvement: Unique to the first-generation iPad so it will work with the upcoming iPad 2; Only available in black; The relatively high price

A few months into using it what does he think? Here’s a video (I told you he was a good sport.)
