MacRumors Giveaway: Win an Aluminum Monitor Stand With 4 USB Ports From Satechi

For this week's giveaway, we've partnered up with Satechi to give MacRumors readers a chance to win one of the company's $70 Aluminum Monitor Stands.

Designed to match the iMac and other Macs in Apple's computer lineup, the stand has a clean aluminum design with four USB 3.0 ports built in to manage cables. The stand raises the monitor up by four inches to reduce eye and neck strain.

First unveiled this January at CES, the monitor stand is 11 inches wide in the front, 9.5 inches wide in the back, and 8.75 inches long, so it can accommodate most monitors and laptops. It supports up to 200 pounds.

It's strange that at the end of the video, they show the guy sliding the Apple wireless keyboard under the stand -- and the final shot is of the Apple wired keyboard protruding on either side with no wires showing.

So at 36s they do realise you can tilt the display, thus negating the slightly odd 30secs preceding that - whilst they deliberately tilt the display down. :rolleyes:

1. Macessity makes some stuff that is better, in particular because you slide the keyboard under from the front, not the side.

2. The video shows a guy who is probably 6 foot plus to try to demonstrate the height problem, yet Apple has made the iMac at the height it is with a swivel adjustment for some time and there are really no issues with the height, which is why the Macessity stand doesn't lift it nearly as much.

3. If this is an issue for you. The best option is a Humanscale M8 articulating monitor arm, which is what I use to wall mount my iMac. Great versatility. ;)

4 usb ports to go along with your wireless keyboard and mouse, brilliant!

I can see a small bit of convenience having a place to connect a phone or thumb drive in front of the monitor, but there are less obtrusive hubs out there. I have my external drives flanking my monitor base and don't know many others who "put away" their keyboard.

If I really needed to raise my monitor (or iMac), I'd also want something a little more elegant, maybe it could hold external drives (they're all reasonably close in size) and have tracks for their power and data lines.

So, I'm signing up anyhow. A few free dollars from someone on ebay if I get it.

Yet another discrimination against anyone outside the US!

When will MacRumours accept that the world doesn't begin and end in the States?


Honestly, for anyone to have a promotion that could include many countries throughout the world, well...that would require a lot of legal paperwork and legal staff hours which = $$$$$

When countries outside the US start designing gadgets worth promoting.
