Do you use a stand with your iMac (or monitor)? Why or why not?
Philippe Rostin
IT TAKES A STUPID APPLE USER TO PLUG A USB A IN A USB C PLUG ! OF COURSE YOU CANT GET SPEED, NOR POWER ! MORON !
Brandon
The satechi stand is slim and sophisticated, perfect for my desktop. The twelve south stand is too bulky for me. It turns a desktop into the robot from the old TV show Lost In Space. It even looks like it will talk with the front door slots. Thanks for this review, and ps, I also added the copper LED light string.

UHS-I only in 2019... a deal breaker ! I'm using UHS-II...
Dan Tech
Did you mispronounce the name?
Bad Robot
I’d like to see one made to fit a Mac mini underneath!
Steve Kralik
For that price they should be utilizing at least USB C 3.2 (10-20 gbps), or better yet Thunderbolt. USB 3.0 is so outdated and not worth $90.
单际超
Totally trash product.....
Bob P
Looks like it may work with the Mac mini
Liz Black
Is it just for iMac Pro or can you use it on any iMac?
terwilliger44
Thanks for the review, i will definitely check it out! In the review it would be helpful to know how much height it adds, show the LED, how big is the space under the stand, etc.
Hi-Fi Insider
It looks dark for a silver color. I thought it was SG until you said it is silver.
Wil Raubach
I just realized i have an vesa mount version iMac 🙈
Oliver Bose
Thanks for the great video again. I never used stands. I prefer monitor arms to get the best ergonomic. Of course, it depends on your usage. In my case I don’t need front connectors.
Veteran Bicycle
No thanks. Another crappy accessory trying to keep USB-A relevant for some reason. Fail!
Chris R
I like the stand but not a must have
Andre Gant
What's wrong with a good ol REACH AROUND?????!!!!
Khubs
Aesthetically, this is pretty neat
Kirill
I would only consider it if I was able to fit my iMac stand plate underneath the stand.

Put hitachi in your old stand ;)
