Three things the Flote has that elevates it completely above the rest: (1) very good looks, (2) telescoping, and (3) a magnetic ball joint.
The last two come in very handy when reading in bed. The magnetic ball joint allows you to lie flat on your back and have the ipad perfectly and straightly positioned above you, with its face parallel to the bed. The Swingholder cannot quite do that - it is always a bit angled. Most of the other stands can't even manage a mostly downward position - they require you to sit up to read.
The telescoping allows you to change position often and easily adjust the ipad accordingly. With a non-telescoping boom, adjusting the ipad position often means wrangling the heavy base closer or further away, with an awkward sequence of actions: move - get back to reading position and check - adjust base position again - check - move and adjust once more - check - give up. The telescoping gets it right every single time.
The designer - Dave Cutler - was very helpful with questions I had prior to purchase. He did warn me though they were backed up on the manufacturing, so it was a bit of a wait, but so worth waiting for.
As I sat on my exercise ball reading the NY Times on my iPad, then stood for a while to read email--with one easy, smooth adjustment of the FLOTE to suit my position--my frugal mom observed, "That's really worth what you paid. It's not a luxury." I wholeheartedly agree. My painful iPad neck is a thing of the past, and I keep finding more neat ways to use the FLOTE. I even used it as I soaked in my tub, so I could watch a movie while I relaxed. And I used it in the kitchen while cooking, so I could have the recipe at eye level as I stood at the stove. It's not too much trouble to bring it upstairs (as long as you are able to lift the base) when I need it there, so I'm getting a lot of use from it.
I was afraid I would have buyer's remorse; for me, this is a big chunk of change. But nope, I'm very, very happy. The customer service and communication I received as I waited for the order was exemplary, too. The owner/designer contacted me himself and replied almost immediately to all of my questions.
IMHO: Until you've read a book or watched a movie or Skyped on your iPad while comfortably lying flat in bed, hands free, you have no idea how wonderful life with your iPad can be. I'll say it again: I love my FLOTE. Highly recommend it.
