      mStand v.s. HiRise for MacBook

      I've been using the mStand for a little over a year now, but when Twelve South came out with their new HiRise for MacBook stand I figured I would give it a try. I've been using the mStand for a little over a year now, but when Twelve South came out with their new HiRise for MacBook stand I figured I would give it a try. I'm not going to compare unboxing because functionality it what ultimately matters. I dock/undock my Early 2011 MacBook Pro roughly 5-10 times a week. What is most important to me is that it is a seamless transition. Have laptop, put on stand, and connect cables. The mStand excels at this with its "feet" to catch the laptop and make perfect positioning an ease with each use. The HiRise however, does not have such a feature and this can become a tedious task to get the same position as you had once before. Placing your $3k MacBook Pro on a stand shouldn't be a guessing game, and you definitely shouldn't be worried that it might fall off given the incorrect position. Stand placement is another big issue for me and honestly, I didn't realize it was until I got the HiRise. The stand shouldn't move once placed in the proper position on my desk. The mStand doesn't move. The HiRise does, and abhorrently so. Lastly, elevation is also critical. While the HiRise will get the top of your MacBook Pro screen to roughly 15 1/2", the mStand will give you a full inch more. There is also more downward angle on the body of the Macbook Pro with the mStand. The is bound to be more beneficial to heat dissipation. I have also found it makes it easier to use the keyboard in those instances I forget to turn Bluetooth back on before docking my MacBook Pro. P.S. With the HiRise height set to the lowest point, the back(where the back of your laptop would sit) is at 3 5/8" and the front is at 2 1/8".

      It Does Stick! People are using it wrong!

      Great Product, everyone that says that it does not stick and that the macbook slides off is using the product upside down! The V shape part of the product is w Great Product, everyone that says that it does not stick and that the macbook slides off is using the product upside down! The V shape part of the product is where the macbook sits on, and the base that sits on the desk is the rectangular part. Please consult the pictures on the box before using and criticizing. Personally, I love the product, it may not have the ability to change the tilt, but the height adjustments are great, the product is built strong and sturdy, and I love the design ascetics of the product!

      Disappointed

      My High Rise stand arrived today, and it is very well made, and looks great. Sadly though it does not hold either my MacBook Air or MacBook Pro steady or sec My High Rise stand arrived today, and it is very well made, and looks great. Sadly though it does not hold either my MacBook Air or MacBook Pro steady or securely enough. Both machines just rest on the support arms, but move about both front to back and side to side when touched, even lightly. This gives the impression that it is going to fall off. This may not be a problem if you intend to never touch the machine once it is one the stand, but if like me you will have to still use the keys from time to time this may not be the one for you. Sadly had to return the stand.

      DON'T BUY!!! (I would not even give it a 1 star rating)

      Way over priced AND it's junk!!! Wobbly, height adjustment doesn't lock good and the amount it adjusts is hardly worth it! The box it came in is nicer than this Way over priced AND it's junk!!! Wobbly, height adjustment doesn't lock good and the amount it adjusts is hardly worth it! The box it came in is nicer than this stand. If I was not going to return it I would use the box to set my mac pro on, not this stand!!!

      Overpriced and wonky

      Use a pile of books, it's much cheaper and more stable Although the stand is advertised as 'adjustable' it barely moves. It is also usually wonky unless full Use a pile of books, it's much cheaper and more stable Although the stand is advertised as 'adjustable' it barely moves. It is also usually wonky unless fully open.

      You Really Want This To Be Good, But ....

      There isn’t really much more that can be said that hasn’t already been said about this stand – good and bad. As I couldn't decide which active stand I wanted There isn’t really much more that can be said that hasn’t already been said about this stand – good and bad. As I couldn't decide which active stand I wanted to get for my home office to get out of ergonomic jail with my MacBook Air, I decided to buy this and the Rain Design mStand. After just a few days of side-by-side tests, the HiRise is simply not up to par with the mStand in terms of overall performance. It looks good, and comes in a very upscale package, but you aren’t paying for looks and a nice box to store stuff in. I found that the HiRise has enough glitches, that, when strung together, don’t deliver at any price, let alone the premium cost this sells for. Pros: Height adjustable. Aluminum material. Teflon footing on base plate makes it easy to slide or turn for others to see (if you really need that functionality). Cons: Adjustment pole has lack of sturdiness at full height. Lock knob sometimes hard to screw-in tightly enough. Silicon matting on the arms of the V-bracket doesn't elicit confidence unless the laptop isn't in the perfectly balanced position - high risk to be knocked off the stand. Construction feels iffy. Highest setting is still too low for my needs. Machined joints at the top and base of the main support posts have too much play. Price. In theory this should be a standout item, but sadly, it isn’t. This will be going back in deference to the superior mStand.
