I bought this stand as a christmas present because i have always wanted a stand for my iPad. And the iPad dock which only hold the iPad in portrait is really a big nuisance especially with the iPad case on. When i took it out the box i was expecting it to weigh a fair bit but the aluminium frame is incredibly light. And the brushed aluminium base looks fantastic. It fits the iPad really well. And you don't have to take the case on your iPad off to use it cause it fits most of them anyway (even the iPad case.) It will of course sit in landscape or portrait and you can charge your iPad on it in any landscape. This case is amazing for watching movies on or pressing the picture frame button when it is locked. Only problem with it is it doesn't fold away it is fixed frame and moving it in a suitcase from one place to the other may not be a great idea. Although the aluminium feels like it could withstand a lot of pressure and not bend.
Overall this is a great case and for £40 it is expensive but it will last a long time and judging the looks of it, it will fit the flat backed iPad 2
