    Hefty, well-made, sturdy piece of furniture.

    I just set up my HiRise Pro for my Mac mini and Apple 24" Display. I am very impressed with the fit and finish of this stand. First of all, it's got a lot of heft! You'll notice the 9 lbs. as soon as you pick up the box. It's very solid, and the pieces fit together perfectly to make a stout stand for your computer.

    I put my Mac mini inside on the bottom shelf with my external CD drive on top of the Mini. The display is set on the second shelf from the top. It works great and I am very happy with this purchase. I also like the soft deck on top for parking my iPhone on. This stand looks fantastic and has feed up a lot of space on my desk.

    P.S. Twelve South's packaging is also top notch, and their customer service is the best I have encountered.

    Quality, but limited flexibility.

    As other reviewers have pointed out, it's crucial to note the fact that only the top two shelf positions can be used with an iMac. Other displays may work in lower positions, but the "chin" of the iMac scrapes the case in lower positions. A MacMini can fit inside, but, the back partition won't close if you have USB ports in use. Great build quality, and looks sharp otherwise!

    All shelving options are not usable for the iMac.

    The HiRise Pro will only allow you to use the top 2 shelving positions for your iMac. This is a huge disappointment, since it contradicts their website description and numerous press releases and advertisements. In fact, the animated graphic on their website shows the iMac being set in different positions.

    The lowest shelf position will not accommodate the iMac. The second lowest shelf will allow it to fit, but you will lose some motion for your display. Tilting downward will cause the display to hit the top of the HiRise Pro. Only the top 2 shelves are usable.

    This brings me to my next point. 12 South "recommends" Shelves 3 and 4 (the top two) for the iMac in their manual. First, this is not a recommendation, but a requirement. Second, this should be prominently featured in all descriptions for this product. Not something you learn once its paid for and shipped. It's either dishonesty or oversight.

    Be sure you want your Display in one of the top two heights listed on their website before purchasing. If you do, it's otherwise very well built.

    Great Stand

    This matches the new iMac Pro beautifully. It also matches my walnut desk perfectly. Easy to assemble, no screws required. Brings the iMac up to a reasonable height. Lots of storage inside. Highly recommend.
