    BackPack for iMac is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from It really could be better. Lots better I struggled with 2 stars or 3 stars. It gets 3 stars for using matching materials and easy to assemble but functionally its 1-2 stars. It does hold my laptop, and the laptop stays cooler and it frees up desk space so there is that. The adjustment studs that clamp to the Cinema display's stand leave MUCh to be desired. Its way too expensive for what it is but its right at the line where it worked well enough, I had the need and it was more hassle to return it. Plus the only other half decent looking similar items were from the same company so i figured they would suck about the same.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Extremely difficult to get it to affix to computer I bought this to hold a backup drive and two other, smaller drives at the back of my iMac. Yes, the materials match, and I didn't find any other item that does what this does, but what a royal pain to try to get it to work. Very difficult to assemble, in particular, the finger-tightened screw-clamps. In fact, mine still slips on one side. The design of these doesn't quite make sense to me. They look good, but ease of use was left in the dust. My original plan was to buy one or two more, but the frustration just isn't worth it. If my computer/work space wasn't so very tight, I would have returned this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great company and shelf The shelf works great for holding my external Lacie sad drive. I can move the computer and not worry about the drive cables. i did have a problem with a small part. I called the company, they answered the phone almost immediately and a new part was received in 3 days. GREAT service.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good idea, poor implementation. Disapointing To summarize, it looks good and it seems to be well thought but if it does not fit perfectly in both sides of the computer base, it will end up holding all its weight on one side only which will lead to a flimsy fit. I over torqued the screws to make it fit tighter and they broke.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice computer accessory Luv the purpose of securing an external hard behind my iMac. However the tightening screws which secure it are difficult to adjust when in placed behind my iMac

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BackPack for iMac is perfect. This is one of those products that works exactly like you think it does. My review is pretty simple: shoulda bought two!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy it again. It does the job. My 3 portable hard drives are all connected to my computer but none of them are visible.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty but, that's all. Not very well made. One of the threaded studs pulled of the bracket rendering it useless.
