Product: Pressure Drop zStand
Category: Stands

Summary:
zStand, the first sleek, stylish monitor stand that ingeniously includes a USB 2.0 and FireWire 400 combination hub hidden in the back is designed to perfectly accommodate a Mac mini. Delivering beauty through its stylish "Z" shape but brawn through its dual hardened steel support walls, zStand gracefully elevates monitors weighing up to 50 lbs. to a more ergonomically correct height, easing common neck and shoulder fatigue associated with improper monitor positioning. Hidden from view, however, is a combination hub that offers more expansion ports for the Mac mini than any other hub on the market today. [List Price: $99.99]

Cons... It's ugly.
Pros... I don't own one.

Seriously... it's all personal taste. I don't think much can go wrong with a stand.

I have the Grandstand steel. It's built like a tank

There are some other nice stands on this site as well.

Google Mac mini stands and you'll get a better idea of what is out there.

I was more interested in the built-in USB/FW capabilities. If anyone found them problematic. I will look at the other offerings.

Bandit, have you tried to access this URL lately?
It comes up with an error for me, possibly because Plasticsmith is no longer in business.

I hadn't tried. I'd sell you mine seeing you live in Canada. $15 + shipping could probably get it to you for around $20-25. I don't use it anymore because I bought a LaCie mini and changed my setup.

Normally I couldn't be bothered to sell my stuff, but if it is going to good use then I don't mind taking the time.

I see there is a plasticsmith.ca out of Vancouver maybe that is the same company.
