Just got and installed a Macessity Hang with Mi Duo.

It's very well made, dimensions are exactly right, very strong steel (no significant flex really) with a nice finish. The mounted USB hub is nice and is working fine (comes with a short regular USB to mini cable that is just the right length and a very tiny power adapter which you have to use) but I worry about hitting it iff mounted under a desk (not a problem where I mounted it)

The Duo is holding a G4 1.5Ghz mini and a Ministack v2 500GB drive - you unfortunately can't use the left side rear ports on the v2 Ministack (the 2 firewire and USB ports on the side - but you could cut out that part of the Duo hanger without compromising it's strength in my opinion.

They include a paper template that makes hanging much easier - only required a phillips screwdriver. And they included a 5th screw in case you lose one - I love manufacturer that makes that sort of effort.

I also ordered and installed one of their power supply hangers that allows you to hang the mini power brick under the table. The construction of this piece wasn't as nice (galvanized steel?) but it doesn't need to be. Also I have to loosen the screws to be able to slide the power brick in - not exact dimensions but it grips the brick very well. Aside from the neatness factor, this mounting system gets rid of the problem of the power plug getting yanked out of the mini.

Oh and I ordered it on a Monday and got it on a Thursday - excellent service by Macessity - total for the Duo and the bundled power supply holder ($4.99) was $61 shipped - they only take Paypal though the order page implied otherwise.

Altogether an A++ - and I have more real estate on my desk now.
