I love the products from Satechi. They offer a range of hubs, stands, remotes, and more that make the iOS and Apple Mac experience better. Additionally, many of their gadgets are made out of aluminum which makes them right at home on any Apple user’s desk. Recently, Satechi gave me their Premium Aluminum Monitor Stand ($69.99) to try.
I liked the Apple-inspired design and the use of aluminum. The stand is more than a stand as it included four easy-to-access, high-speed USB 3.0 ports. I also liked that it supports up to 200 pounds! It should accommodate any monitor or even a 27-inch iMac with Retina display. Although it fits right in with Apple environments, it would be fine for PCs. In fact, many PC makers are embracing aluminum and styling cues from Apple. My only concern is that the Premium Aluminum Monitor Stand comes with a premium price, but rememberthat it is both a stand and a four-port USB 3.0 hub.
- Apple-inspired design and materials
- Four easy to access, high-speed USB 3.0 ports
- Supports up to 200 pounds!
- Not just for Apple desktops
- A bit pricey
If you want a stand to elevate your desktop screen and you could also use a USB 3.0 hub, consider the Premium Aluminum Monitor Stand from Satechi.
