Review + Giveaway: Choiix Wave Stand for iPad

The Choiix Wave Stand for iPad is an aluminum holder that will work for any tablet. It's beautiful looking -- almost Apple-esque -- well-made, sturdy, and inexpensive, what's not to love?

The Wave Stand has lots of nice touches like rubberized feet to keep it in place even when you're tapping, typing and prodding at your iPad. The back of the stand is also rubberized and grooved to keep your iPad from slipping down or out. You can easily adjust angles and because it's strong, it stays right where you want it. You can use it with your iPad in either portrait or landscape mode, though in landscape mode pushing the iPad home button does make it wiggle a bit. (You can use your iOS 5 multitasking gestures to get around that.)

I've been using it all the time and I find it absolutely amazing. I use it at the table so I can browse the web while eating, on the counter while cooking, and on the desk while typing.

Best of all, Choiix is going to give one away to a lucky TiPb reader, so if you want in all you have to do is leave a comment below telling me how you would use the Wave Stand.

Jerry Dean says:

I would give this to my wife as a gift, that way she could setup her iPad on the stand, for when she is in the kitchen or elsewhere doing stuff, and wants to have the iPad handy, but can't just set it down.

I'd love to have this stand to use my iPad as a monitor when using my bluetooth keyboard!

Jordan McLeod says:

I would it for entertainment, having a good way to hold my iPad while i watch movies and being able to have it on an exact angle that im comfortable with it, and I would also use it to show my parents videos and website so that they would not have to fuss about holding it and accidentally pressing something! I would find much use out of this :)

Just bought an iPad2 for my daughter for Christmas. This would be a great addition for her. She is disabled and it would be so helpful for her to use her new iPad.

JD Northwest says:

We use our iPad in the kitchen for both recipes and streaming video/email. This stand would pair up nicely with the stainless steel appliances. :)

wingate says:

I would use watching Liveatream....

Jaxupra says:

I would use it for my wife's iPad ostensibly, but really for my Kindle DX. (It looks as if Amazon is getting ready to release a new DX, and their accessories are history.

Just in case I don't win one, where can I buy it?

wingate says:

A.J. Martinez says:

Hedwig Guerra says:

I need a sturdier stand for work, currently I use the smart cover, which is nice and all, but sometimes the iPad wobbles when I use it.

bjirvin says:

There are many ways I'd use this. The question would be who gets to use it, me or my wife!

Liszak says:

Looks much sturdier than my fold back cover & would allow me to type easier!

I would use this to make a nice dual display for my laptop. One can never have too much screen real estate.

bunch_dub says:

Love it! I think I'd just have it on my desk at work to show off the glory of my iPad 2!! :)

Ken says:

When I travel, I have to edit photos on only 1 monitor. With this stand and the air display would make my workflow on the road much faster.

Blair Rohlfing says:

This would be PERFECT! I need a stand for the kitchen. I usually lean my iPad against the wall when I am cooking (the iPad is a great recipe book), but when you turn the garbage disposal on, the counter vibrates and the iPad slips down onto the counter/cutting-board I was just cutting chicken on.

Jim Nichols says:

I would give this to my sister-in-law for Christmas.

That's perfect for using my iPad with my laptop as an extended desktop.

I would use this in my office in Baghdad for teleconferences with family and friends.

This would be great to hold my iPad 2 while my son is Skype-ing with his Nana!

iNitvizn says:

I could find a million uses for this thing - what a great stand to replace the folding case I have on there now. Reading an e-book, FaceTime with my daughter and family out of town, watching videos (Mobile Nations video podcasts) at my desk......

JC Choi says:

I would use this as a stand when 1) I use the Ipad as an external monitor at my desk and 2) preparing meals in the kitchen 3) use it when I have guests over to play music and show pictures 4) use it to show pictures when I am doing a presentation for my job.

I would definitely use it tutoring and to show my 2 new little pit bull puppies cute You tube videos of puppies just like them. The student I tutor loves zoo webcams like Pocket Zoo HD and Penguins. My puppies are curious and like anything with action. Right now my little girl puppy is in surgery for a hernia. I am a little concerned because she is so tiny. Her brother is in my lap sound asleep and snoring. I am keeping my mind occupied by writing this!

Chill Hill says:

I'd be able to have a less cluttered desk when in the office and have a nice stand for presentations, etc...

Bruce says:

As I use my iPad in class to keep track of my notes for lecture/discussion, a stand with multiple angles wold be o much better than leaning the iPad against a couple of books.

This stand would be on my nightstand next to my bed for the iPad 2

I would love one for my wife. She just recently lost use of her left hand. She uses her IPad for work and play.

Jmiller says:

Being an attorney I use my iPad all day long. At present I do not have a stand as I just got the IPad. I would use the stand to propl up the iPad so I can look at evidence and tril presentations. It would also be useful in court to have the iPad standing up so I can refer to it.

FiatAldo says:

Too many uses to count, let's see: on my desk next to my computer monitor, when reading on my desk, on my night stand to use as a lock, on the kitchen counter reading a recipe, hold my iPad up to view a movie, etc.....

Terrie Tipton says:

I have a small business making jams and jellies and this stand would really come in handy while in the kitchen.

Brian Buehler says:

Any chance you will give an iPad to go with the stand?? No? For now, I'd stick a Kindle on it for reading and hope for a smaller iPad option next year.

pastapapa50 says:

I would use the stand to set up the iPad as a second monitor. It would be a great help.

Jeanine Yama says:

Cooking definitely, and also on airplanes, where you have all of 10 horizontal inches to position all of your entertainment equipment.

cpalmer17 says:

I have no witty sayings, no creative kinds of uses,
I really want this stand and make no lame excuses.

Jdhffmn says:

I just got my iPad and have been looking for a stand. Your review convinced me that this is the one for me. Love the show. Thanks.

jnamcharg says:

So, I've spent about 20 years looking for the perfect bedside clock. They were too bright, not bright enough, numbers too small, did not have a long enough cord, would not play a musical alarm, projected the time on the ceiling, which I couldn't read without my glasses. I just wanted something to see the time large enough without waking completely-- so that when I was paranoid of sleeping through my alarm, I could go back to sleep. Strange, I know.
Ipad has solved all of this with Night Stand. Love IT!!!
But my rolled up cover is not holding the pad at quite the right angle. I have to sit up a bit, which wakes me up just too much.
I need your help!

Paul Lee says:

I would use this with my Numark iDJ Live. I recently DJ'd at my friend's birthday party and he got a little drunk and fell over my iPad (destroying the plastic stand that the iDJ unit came with). Now my iPad is 'stand-less' when I am DJing so having this stand would definitely make things a lot better :) Please pick me ^_^

iMactouch says:

I would use it to place the iPad on the table next to my iMac to let me look on my instant messages.

I would use it for my kids...sticky food all over the table...this keeps it off the table, out of the the mess!

Jay Mobile says:

This would be great for me when I type. I like this stand and hope that I win

Steven Spalten says:

I would love to win this. I have been looking for something like this to use at my desk while working so I can see the new ios5 notification that pop up.

SteveW928 says:

I have a smart cover (and love it), but it really doesn't achieve the proper angle for many things when standing up in the more vertical position (it's perfect in the more 'laying down' position). So, I'd use this while typing with a BT keyboard, in the kitchen while cooking, or to just hold the iPad up at my desk while I'm working on my desktop (I kind of work between my iPad and desktop as I work).

parvezjj says:

just leave it on my table lol

Steve Park says:

I would love to win this cool stand! I take the stand with me as I go to church and when I am home I would like to use to as a night stand for my Ipad 2.

kiwiruss says:

I'd wrap it up and give it to my lovely wife to use with er IPAD2. Her smart cover is such a wimpy stand and i'm always afraid the kids will knock it over and damage her IPAD2.

Bob G says:

I need this great stand so I can watch your iPad Live video podcasts without dropping my iPad with sheer excitement! Love your shows
