Closer Look at the CASSI 323

Closer Look:

The CASSI 323 is a basic tablet stand. No matter how you slice it, the basic idea is the same for pretty much all current popular stands. There is a center part that elevates and allows you to position the tablet at various angles. Spire does this while keeping the areas of contact on the tablet protected from scratches with rubber pads. These rubber pads are positioned strategically in order to keep the tablet in place, while not being excessive or allowing the tablet to be scratched or slide out of place.

The bottom of the stand (where the tablet rests) has a nice secure groove that is rubber coated as well.  This keeps the tablet in place - whether portrait or landscape - as well as provides a nice scratch-free home for the tablet to sit.

The CASSI 323 can be adjusted from an almost vertical position and can fold flat for storage or for packing with you when you hit the road.  This kind of flexibility is great as it won't hinder you from taking it with you when you are going on a bit of a trip.

Final Thoughts:

In the end the CASSI 323 is a decent choice if you need a stand for your tablet. In my mind, most of these stands will do the same thing and there really isn't a wrong choice to be had. Style, availability and person preference are ultimately what dictate a purchasing decision for a basic tablet stand. With all that in mind, the CASSI 323 is a decent choice as it has pretty basic features, a nice style that blends in with pretty much any decor and is affordably priced.

If you need a powered stand, or something for a much larger tablet, you may want to keep shopping, but in my experience, if you need a stand for anything from a Nexus 7 to a Microsoft Surface, the CASSI 323 should be able to get the job done.

It's not the fanciest stand on the market, but with the MSRP at $24.99, I'm sure you’ll be able to pick this up for under $20 once you start shopping around. At that price, it's a nice place to keep your tablet. Whether you're charging it or watching a movie at your desk - the CASSI 323 is a simple tool that helps free up your hands.
