It works... kinda. There is some adjustment available but not enough fine turning adjustment to allow you to exactly fit to a specific PC case. Ending up, in my situation, being 'between' far too loose (for my liking), and not snug. My PC case now hangs below my desk at a slightly rakish angle, both horizontally and also vertically. So, if your goal is to get the PC up off the ground, and attached to the bottom of your desk - I have a sit/stand electrically driven desk. Then this will work for you. However, if you are an engineer, or someone with OCD (Q: how many engineers also have OCD? A: All of them.) it's going to drive you nuts! Thank goodness it's under the desk and not seen - out of sight... etc. Damn it! I can still see it there... mocking me.
I have an Alienware Aurora R8 tower. It doesn't fit properly. The biggest problem is the footing on the mount. It is just too short and stubby. I measured the width of the tower and it is about 8 inches wide and it has to sit on a plate that's about 3.5 inches. Would be nice if the bottom was also extendable. Furthermore the bottom middle of the Aurora tower is not quite flat and this particular mount doesn't really like anything that isn't plain flat on the bottom. So right now the thing is leaning to the side and tipping backwards. It is hard to get it to be snug on the top as well because you can't really slot many towers like mine which is contoured straight in from the front, so I kinda have to go in through the side... I had to use cardboard to wedge it all in so it doesn't just fall out. Anyways, it is just not a good buy unless you have one of those really basic towers that's flat on all sides, light, and simple.
I was surprised by the quality of the product. It did exactly what it was supposed to do and was also surprised to have all the necessary nuts (wood and wall mount) to install everything under my desk. The base is solid (what is screwed to the desk), but I think what basically holds the tower could be a bit beefier (what's under the tower - basically the hook on the underside. Also, the unit includes Phillips screws (star) and I think it should have had square screws instead - especially when going into hard wood - worst case just use your own to be sure. My tower is big and heavy so I'm still checking the install under my standing desk. I can't really say anything negative really, the unit is all black and perfectly finished and looks very good under my standing desk. Now I need to figure out what do to with all these wires! Cheers.
This under-mount PC holder is amazingly sturdy and well constructed solution that allows mounting the PC holder either under-desk or on a wall. No regrets on this purchase and highly recommend to others needing the same.
Dry-fitting my PC (large tower format) prior to installation was a simple process and I it also made me more confident that my PC would not come crashing to the floor sometime in the future. The design allows for supporting tower and desktop chassis of various dimensions, so I know that I can use this for many years to come on my next PC platforms.
Screws provided within the kit and the associated mounting holes permit mounting the PC either under a desk or on wall. Instructions were very well made and spelled out how to use the different mounting options, including wall-mounting into a concrete/solid wall, where required.
Using four decently sized wood screws with washers (provided) I securely fastened the mount into the plywood underside of my desk. A single large bolt and metal nut (with nylon insert) secured the solidly built upper-mount to the frame, yet let me dial in the best rotation tension. This is useful to turn the PC after installation for quick access to external ports of the PC -- yet not accidentally allow the PC to freely swing around if a cable was tugged.
Rubber pads (also provided) ensured that the PC case would not get scratched over time. Instructions included with the kit showed where to correctly place them. This was a small but important detail that took the guesswork out of the whole installation process.
TIP: The multiple small rubber adhesive-backed pads provided in the mounting kit should be sufficient to prevent scratching or marring of the PC's exterior finish. However since I had purchased a collection of felt pads at big box stores some time back, I decided to add even more padding.
By placing a rigid felt pad (4"x6") on the top where the PC meets the mount as well as two adhesive-backed small felt pads (1" diameter) on the side clamp, I could tighten the PC down as much as I could and not risk any wiggle, vibration or scratching of the PC's chassis. While not required, but just a bit of extra insurance using stuff lying around the house.
It was simple to assemble but it really didn’t fit my Inwin case well. The small blade and housing holding the PC in is very flimsy resulting in the PC being slanted instead of nice and straight in unit. The vertical adjustment is also flawed as it relies on hole alignment - my PC ended up between holes so could not secure with thumbscrew. Overall not happy as PC doesn’t sit tight in unit nor square.
Es un excelente soporte, compré tres, me sirvieron para colocar un par de CPU’s debajo de un escritorio, de forma que no estorbaran sobre la mesa, los materiales son de buena calidad y el paquete incluye todo lo necesario para colocarlo en el lugar que decidas ya sea bajo un escritorio o en la pared, puede accede a las conexiones fácilmente dado que permite girar el cpu, el único inconveniente fue que no pude utilizar el tercero de ellos con un gabinete que pesa más de 10 kilos (el manual recomienda no exceder ese péselo) preferí no arriesgarme a que fuera a vencerse el material y fuera a dar al suelo, es un detalle importante a tener en cuenta si vas a adquirirlo, por lo demás lo recomiendo totalmente.
Really liked this concept - got the PC off the floor, mounted under desk and have just enough room to pivot the PC to get at the front and side. I like how one side of the mount only goes down 1/2 way so you can exhaust heat if you have a side fan or grill. Right amount of part included - you only have to take time to think about how and where exactly you want to mount before you start screwing holes. First time success for me.
