Vert•X Xserve Stand Reviewed

- 2004.02.13

This is a review of the Vert•X XServe stand by Marathon Computer.

This is necessarily going to be a short review. It's a simple product. It does what it says.

There are two plastic stands with a slot. They are very lightweight but feel sturdy. The box seems to weigh more than the product, but maybe I'm exaggerating just a little.

VertX XServe standIt's a little loose, so if you pick up your server the stand falls off. It's not designed to stay stuck on.

Setup probably requires two people or one person with more coordination than I have. Turn off your server before installation.

The Vert•X comes in a box that has a funny joke on it. It costs $40, which seems a little steep for what it is. On the other hand, if you can afford an XServe, you should be able to afford a VertX.

If this serves your needs, get one. I like mine.
