Review: Hubbell Mini mount Shelf  
Thursday February 16, 2006 3:14 AM EST

Looking for a good way to mount your Mac mini underneath a desk or a shelf? Well, look no further than Hubbell's Mini mount Shelf for the Mac mini. It's definitely one of the best looking and designed mounts we have seen for the Mac mini.

Our Mini mount Shelf came packaged neatly and in a small white box. In the box, you'll find the mount itself, eight 3/4" wood screws, four 1 3/4" wood screws, four 1" spacers, power supply mount, and installation guide. The instructions in the guide are written well and easy-to-follow.

The Mini mount Shelf is made out of a single piece of 1/4" clear acrylic plastic. It measures 6 3/4" wide x 7 1/2" deep x 2 3/4" tall. The mount features two clear acrylic front posts and two removable rear posts that basically lock your Mac mini inside the mount. These posts do an excellent job of preventing the Mac mini from sliding out of the mount. Plus, they allow the front and back to stay open for full access to the Mac mini's optical drive and rear panel. The mount also features a unique X-shaped bottom that allows maximum airflow to the Mac mini's vents.

Installing the mount underneath a desk or shelf requires screwing in four 3/4" screws. Hubbell even went the extra step of countersinking the screw holes so the heads are flush with the mount. They also include four 1" spacers in case you need additional vertical clearance. This should come in handy if the desk or shelf you're attaching the mount to has a bottom lip or edge. You will need to use the longer 1 3/4" wood screws if you use these spacers. The kit also includes a clear acrylic mount for the Mac mini's power adapter.

Overall, we can recommend this product to our readers and give it a score of 4 out of 4 stars. We really came away impressed with this mount. The Hubbell Mini mount Shelf mini is available now and has a suggested retail price of $49.99.

Pros:

  Stylish design compliments Mac mini
  Front and rear posts prevent Mac mini from sliding out of mount
  Open front and back allow for easy access to the Mac mini
  Includes mount for the Mac mini's power adapter
  Design of mount allows maximum airflow for the Mac mini
