Rating: 5/5 Excellent Mini Stand January 17, 2016 I purchased this stand two years ago and it has served me quite well. It is sturdy, with a solid build quality about it. It reduces the mini's footprint and allows for more room for backup devices and a USB hub. I sit mine on top of a portable blu-ray burner when i am burning disks.

I have only a minor quibble with this stand. It does not hold the mini perfectly perpendicular to the desktop, it leans a few degrees to a side. Admittedly this is minor and which would not keep me fro buying another stand should I have another employed in my network.

Rating: 5/5 Elegant simple stand January 11, 2016 It does exactly what is is designed to do and lots good doing it. Rubberized gasket around stand opening protects and makes the Mini fit snuggly and prevents any movement. Access to the back of the Mini and its ports has been a bonus.

Rating: 5/5 Sturdy Mac-mini Stand November 24, 2014 Well designed stand for mounting Mac-mini in vertical position, yields better heat dissipation and seems to improve Wi-Fi signal reception as the Airport antenna is under the black disk that provides a base for it in horizontal position.

Rating: 5/5 Great little stand October 5, 2014 Bought my Wife a MacMini for Xmas and I bought this along with some other accessories from OWC. Matches the finish of the Mini closely and saves desk space.

Rating: 5/5 Cheap but not nasty! August 12, 2014 A quality product at a reasonable price! The NuStand holds my MacMini Server upright behind my TV (I use it primarily as a media centre). The MacMini runs a couple of degrees cooler but more importantly it sucks up much less dust in this position. When the MacMini sits normally it seems to suck dust in from every where regardless how clean the surroundings are kept. But sitting vertically in the NuStand it is much cleaner internally when the bottom of the MacMini's case is removed. The silicon bits keep everything from scratching and sliding around but the contact patch for the feet could be a tad larger for more contact.

Rating: 5/5 Mini Stack also November 27, 2013 I purchased the NuStand knowing it would fit my mini stack enclosure and it does. Perfect for the mini stack in a vertical position. OWC should advertise for this use as well and not only for the Mac Mini.

Rating: 5/5 Excellent product! February 8, 2013 I'm absolutely impressed with this NuStand Alloy product. It's perfect to stand my Apple Airport Extreme. It is slight smaller and has the same thickness to fit in the stand. I found this product in MacWorld, March 2013 issue, on page 18. The design and white color of this alloy product blends in with the Airport Extreme router. I highly recommend this product for Mac Mini and Airport Extreme. Thank you for the excellent customer service and convincing me this would be a suitable product for my Apply Airport Extreme.

Rating: 5/5 Excellent! October 11, 2012 Up to the quality of the Mac itself. Same finish, looks like it came with it. And amazingly, it DOES run MUCH cooler while in this mount! That's good for the internals to last longer with less heat stress. That alone would make it worth using! While I see one reviewer mention that the silicone gasket could be glued down, it's not necessary, as it holds very well and secure as it is. While just the tips of the clear feet make contact, they also grab the whole unit without any slide risk seen.

Well thought out, I'm impressed, and happy to have recovered some shelf space, with class! Small LOGO on one side of unit is easily turned to the back, so you don't have to look at "more" marketing, unless you want to.

Overall, the best and most simple solution I've seen. Definitely worth buying to save space, and keep it running cooler!

Thanks NuTech, brilliant and functional design!

Rating: 4/5 Good but could be better June 10, 2012 I bought this because I was trying to get better cooling of a 2011 Mini with 2.5GHz i5 and Radeon graphics. It does seem to help temperatures somewhat, but It does have two minor issues. One could be easily fixed by the user (no glue holding the cushion ring that the Mini rests on in place). The other is that the rubber feet come off easily. The stand rests on its edges, so the rubber feet only contact the desk (or table) with one edge. If the stand's edges had flat surfaces under them, then the rubber feet could make full contact with the desk (or table).
