Specifications

The Vogel RingO is a mounting system and case combination that will work with a Smart Cover on your iPad 2. The case has a rear camera cutout and leaves the controls and ports exposed. There is a version for the original iPad as well. The case portion is made to stay on your tablet and there are a number of accessories. The kit I am checking out is the starter kit with the holder and a wall mount, car mount, and table stand. I need to point out that the pack I have here is a reviewers pack that has more accessories included. This complete pack isn't for sale in the US. The most complete pack avaible in the US is the RingO Tablet Starter Pack that inculdes the iPad holder and the wall mount selling for $69.99. The Car Mount accessory alone is $99.99.

In Use

The Vogel RingO for iPad 2 is a very cool case. The unit I have includes all of the mounting options that you might want. The car mount is a great way to mount the iPad 2 to the poles on your headrest. The mount holds securely and should fit most vehicles. If you put the Vogel RingO on your seat, you may see some shaking due to the seat in the car moving as you drive. That is no fault of the Vogel RingO but simply a side effect of the mounting method.

The iPad is easy to get in and out of the case and the case can be used to help protect your tablet when it is not connected to one of the various mounting devices. The mounts are easy to remove from the case. The various mounts attach with no tools and use spring loaded tabs that grip a recessed ring on the iPad case. The tabs are easy to remove, but hold very securely to the case keeping your iPad safe.

My kit also included the desk prop accessory to prop the screen of the iPad upright when you want to watch video on the table or type more comfortably with an accessory keyboard. The wall mount is one of the cooler mounts the kit includes. You can attach this little round device to your wall in the kitchen, bathroom, or bedroom and view the tablet at a comfortable height without having to hold the tablet. This is a great mount for those that like to use recipes found online in the kitchen.

The mount securely holds the iPad 2 out of range from spills and spalshes and you don’t have to worry that the iPad will fall off the counter or fall off the mount. Overall, the Vogel RingO works very well and is one of the more convenient and easy to use cases and mounting systems out there. There is also a version for the original iPad available.

Verdict

Pros

  • Lots of mount options
  • Case works with smart cover

Cons

  • Expensive
 

Conclusion

The only thing I can say bad about the Vogel RingO is that it's expensive if you want extra mounts. The Vogel RingO works well and does exactly what it promises to do.
