      Elevates and tidies

      I'm using Hi-Rise to elevate my iMac, it's tidied up my desk and all my cables, USB hub and blu-ray drive are neatly enclosed behind the removable front panel. I'm using Hi-Rise to elevate my iMac, it's tidied up my desk and all my cables, USB hub and blu-ray drive are neatly enclosed behind the removable front panel. The magnetic front and back panel make getting access to the interior simple - there are screws if you need more security, but I prefer the easy access. If you're placing USB cables/devices inside Hi-Rise route the cables through the cut out in the iMac/Display's stand and in to the back of Hi-Rise for a tidy appearance. You have to assemble Hi-Rise yourself, but it's trivial. All the parts are perfectly machined and slide together easily. The result is a very solid and study product.

      Same Fit and Finish Issues

      I also have issues with the fit, the side of the top and bottom, at front and back, do not align properly. You make one side's top and bottom line up, say front I also have issues with the fit, the side of the top and bottom, at front and back, do not align properly. You make one side's top and bottom line up, say front R then the back L is thrown off. Fortunately the mis-alignment is not enough to cause problems putting the back and front covers on, they do not show significant gaps and stay relatively flush. Sliding the shelf in was more difficult than need be, maybe spraying some silicone on the plastic wrapped edges would help? It didn't require my full body weight as another's review. The screws seem on the small side, and look fragile as though they could strip even being a hex and not slotted or phillips. Definitely be careful and don't over tighten the back plate or your iMac may be permanently locked into the HiRise. These two issues have me knock it down one star each. It definitely tidies up my desktop as I can place a TB HDD across the top and not have to reach around either side to turn it on. I placed a USB hub inside the HiRise out of site, and another TB HDD on the 12 South BackPack behind my iMac. Overall a great idea but for $80 QA should be better!

      QA Issues Perhaps?

I decided I wanted one since it's a much more elegant solution t I read a number of reviews all praising the novelty of the HiRise and the ease of installation. I decided I wanted one since it's a much more elegant solution than raising my iMac with a textbook. I expected the installation to be a breeze, but it truly wasn't. It looks very foolproof, with clear instructions on how to assemble the HiRise. However, for some reason, the one I received was just not precisely cut to slide together easily. I eventually needed to use nearly my entire body weight to slide the top and bottom pieces together against the floor, which from other reviews I read was absolutely not necessary. I can only chalk it up to back luck and the top and bottom pieces were just not made well for each other. It's safe to say that I will probably never disassemble the HiRise ever again, if it's even possible. Now that I've set it up though, my desk looks amazing! Too bad the installation had to be so rough. My suggestion to Twelve South is to improve on the QA and perhaps test the fit of the top and bottom pieces before packaging.

      Does the job

      The product packaging is great. I felt a real sense of anticipation as I opened up the box but ... the design of the product is disappointing! The overall look The product packaging is great. I felt a real sense of anticipation as I opened up the box but ... the design of the product is disappointing! The overall look and general finish is too industrial. It doesn't blend well with the iMac or other office kit and the storage space is also very limited (e.g. I've stored a rarely used CD drive inside). On the positive side, it was easy to set up and does everything I need but I doubt I'd have paid £70 if I'd seen it on the high street.

      Worth every penny

First of all, assembly was super easy. I know there had been some negative reviews about assembly and quality control, but both of mine slid together without much effort. Having my monitors elevated definitely makes a difference. Yes, they do somewhat take away from the sleek Apple appearance but the extra storage space is well worth it and makes for a super tidy desk that still looks very modern. The bottom line is that I would recommend these without hesitation.

      Another innovative and well made Twelve South product

      Prior to purchasing the HiRise, I was using a monitor stand that allows stowage of your keyboard underneath. This setup didn't raise the 27 inch iMac high enou Prior to purchasing the HiRise, I was using a monitor stand that allows stowage of your keyboard underneath. This setup didn't raise the 27 inch iMac high enough for my preference, so I gave the HiRise a try which just sits on top of this monitor stand. The height is now perfect, plus I have a place to neatly store my extra mouse, connected phone charging and USB cables. Very nice design, compliments the iMac and is very solid. I have no worries of my iMac tipping over since the design is very stable. Although earlier reviews made mention of some assembly and quality control issues, this unit assembled perfectly so these issues were likely resolved. A highly recommended accessory for the iMac.
