I wasn't able to get this on Amazon due to stock shortages but was able to get it from another retailer that had a few left.
This Official Sony PS4 vertical stand is worth the money if you want to stand your PS4 consoles vertically. It looks great and fits the size and shape of the side of the console perfectly. It adds that extra stability to the console that gives you that reassurance it will not topple over when plugging the usb cables in (and pulling them out) or using disc based games.

The main reason I got one however is the particular design of the stand. It uses two rubber cubes that insert into the indent on the side of the PS4. Inside the two rubber cubes are rotating spindles, which when rotated push out the sides of the rubber cubes onto the PS4 console to grip on the console. This gives enough rigidity between the stand and console. The other particular design aspect is that the stand has vents (some people think it doesn't but it does). There are gaps around the very base of the stand which are fed to from the vent on the top which the console sits on. This allows good airflow to continue even when the stand is attached. My console runs quieter and cooler standing vertically because of this stand.

TL;DR

If you are standing the console vertically, get this official stand, it allows more stable cooler running of the console, it's worth it.

If you're going to buy the official stand you've got to expect to payout a little bit extra cash, which I don't regret doing.

I found the easiest way to set-up the stand was by the following steps:

1) With everything unplugged from the PS4, place the PS4 upside down vertically (gloss side down, matte side up).

2) Align the stand and push down firmly.

3) Finally, turn the dials to "lock" and you're done!

The stands lock mechanism keeps the two bonded securely, so you don't have to worry about the PS4 sliding off if you were to accidentally knock it.

Finally, the stand & PS4 both really compliment each other which makes them look as if they are one whole unit.

I bought this stand due to a shortage of space around my TV and I needed something reliable.

I was not disappointed. The stand provides the PS4 with sufficient support as the console needs to be wedged in to two small rubber protrusions (don't worry, this doesn't scratch the PS4). The console is then locked in to place with two rotating lock mechanisms below the base of the stand. There are also rubber grips on each of the bottom four corners of the stand to prevent it from slipping.

As for the cooling, provided the room is well-ventilated, there isn't much difference in the noise or temperature of the console whilst running between vertical or horizontal placing.

I initially bought this stand for a Black PS4 but had to return the console due to being faulty and later got a white replacement. To my surprise, I seem to like the white PS4 on the black stand even more so than if it were on a white stand! Hence I am even happier with my purchase. I have provided photos in case you would like to see how it fares with a white PS4.

A bit pricey but considering it's the official stand and is quite sturdy, I do not mind. Would recommend.

Love the stand, very stable and easy to put on. Allows the playstation to still vent air easily. Perfect for those who can't put it horizontal!

It keeps the PlayStation vertical, whilst holding it in place with a locking mechanism. Sleek looking and shaped well around the console.

The Official Sony PS4 stand holds the PS4 well and feels strong and sturdy. It is weighted at the bottom to stop the PS4 from tipping over. Iit is not as wide as I thought but due to the weight it would take a really hard knock to tip it. It is however a bit pricey as realistically I fell a stand should be provided with the console. But I would recommend the official stand over cheaper aftermarket ones as it not only looks the best as the shape follows the contours of the PS4 but is has Sony build quality.

Does what it says on the tin! It's the official PS4 vertical stand which I purchased to ensure I could stand my PS4 vertically next to my always-horizontal Xbox One while maintaining good air flow into the PS4. Before this my PS4 fans would kick in quite quickly but not so much now. The plastic stand is made of good quality material and you feel confident sitting your £300+ console in it.

Overall would recommend this product.

A must if you want your system to look as good as possible. This stand is also important for safety reasons if you have your system vertically. It stands very stable and the stand has rubber underneath. I recommend it!

Keeps the playstation upright and gives more space not too big and does not stick out like most stands around
