Very nice addition, but not perfect,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Twelve South HiRise Stand for iMac | Height-adjustable mount with storage for iMac and Apple Displays (Personal Computers)
I ordered one of these to support a new 27" iMac which by itself was too low down on my desk.
The whole thing arrived beautifully packaged, in much the same manner as Apple package their own products. The HiRise is in two halves which slide together and are then held together with a perforated back plate. This is where I encountered my first problem - the four screw holes on the back plate do not line up exactly with the corresponding holes on the chassis. Being all aluminium, there is no 'give' and as a result I have had to leave one screw out. The screws themselves are tiny and have to be screwed in using a quite flimsy little allen key (supplied) but given that you really only need to do this once it's not too much of a problem.
My only other gripe is that the cover plate that goes on the front to hide whatever objects you decide to place within the stand, is not hinged but instead is held on by four magnets. Some sort of hinge system would have been nice but I dare say would have added to the cost or obstructed the opening. That said, you don't have to use the inside of the stand to store stuff and the front cover can be screwed in place if that's your preference. Regards storing stuff inside the chassis it's big enough to take an iPad 2 although you'd have to leave the front cover off.
The iMac itself stands on an aluminium shelf that you slide into the chassis at one of six different heights, and using the topmost setting it raised my iMac up by about 5cm, just about enough to be at a comfortable viewing height.
Overall I'm pleased with the purchase, it's a nicely constructed bit of kit (aside from the poor alignment of the screw holes), although perhaps a tad expensive for what it is.
