Review unit provided by Benks
Magnetic iPad stands are very common nowadays. Magnetic iPad stands that are foldable are less common and this one from Benks is pretty good. Official retail price is US $79.
Being able to fold down into something smaller and more compact makes this stand easier to bring around in a bag.
Build quality of this stand is excellent as it's made with metal except for the padding on the base and the on the magnetic plate.
The base of the stand may look small but it's actually quite stable.
The hard rubber padding on the base has good grip on the table.
The stand is quite slim so you can grab it with one hand to transport around easily. The stand has good finishing and all the edges are beveled so there are not sharp edges.
The magnetic strength is so strong you have to hold the base to pull off the iPad.
The hinge is stiff but still can tilt and rotate easily.
The base hinge is also stiff and will hold its position.
The hinge can be rotated for vertical orientation too.
This is a good looking stand that's well designed and works great, and it can also be transported easily when folded.

Thank you for your reviews.
I'm looking at the LuIulook and Benks stands for the Ipad Pro 12.9 and have a few questions for you, if that is okay.
Looking at the "non-pro" versions, you mentioned for the Lululook the following "The magnets of this stand are strong, but not strong enough that you can turn the iPad Pro vertically without the tablet detaching. It's best to hold the back place and tablet together when turning."
Does this also apply to the Benks version? or are the magnets on the Benks stronger, that when you rotate it, it won't detach?
Is there a reason to pick one brand over the other, with the price being equal?
I would also like to ask you about the Pro version both brands sell (the one that rotates 360).
When tapping more to the side of the iPad, specifically the bigger one (12.9), with the stand closer to the upright position, will the iPad "move/shake/.."? And is that movement less pronounced on the non-Pro versions?
I'm trying to decide which brand and which model to pick from. I don't necessarily need the 360 rotation but I can still make some use cases for it. But I will value more the one that shakes the less.
Both brands are selling white

Both brands are selling white label products which means they physical design is exactly similar but brand is different. Hence I recommend getting the one with lower price.
The rotating feature is not that useful since you can "rotate" the stand by simply lifting it up. The rotating feature is only useful if you rotate very frequently.
