Product Description

Product Description

Save yourself some shelf space. Get organized, impress your friends. Now for the first time ever, a console holder you can stand on its end! Compatible with PlayStation 2 console only.

The Vertical Stand for PlayStation2 allows gamers to display their consoles safely in an upright position. There are several reasons to do this; chief among them, limited space. It's not good to sit a console on top of a TV, as cords can hang down and block your view of the screen. And, of course, it can be very dangerous to rest a TV on top of a PlayStation2. The stand allows gamers to place their consoles next to their TVs--safely out of the way of kicks, spills, and carpet fibers. The design also helps airflow, and makes it less likely that your PlayStation2 will overheat. Plus, the stand's graduated, organic blue color complements the console's sleek black lines, and makes it look very cool.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exploring the Vertical Dimension December 14, 2000
It took me only two days of owning my PS2 to realize that I really wanted to stand the darned thing on its side. The PS2 just barely fit where my old PS1 used to sit, and there was too little room for the disc tray. My attempts to prop it up between the TV and my cat were pretty much doomed from the start, and I was unsuccesful in trying to get the Army Corps of Engineers to rig up something for me. Thankfully, I came across this thing and bought it. I'm certainly a better person for it.
It's interesting to note that I originally installed it on the PS2 *backwards* (that's what I get for not reading the docs). I'm happy to report no ill-effects from this, and was able to easily remove and re-install the Vertical Stand without damage to either the PS2 unit or myself.

5.0 out of 5 stars And you know this... November 30, 2000
The PS2 vertical stand is not a deathtrap for CDs or DVDs...I watched DVDs without any skipping and although I smacked my PS2 a few times by accident nothing happened to the game CDs. Besides looking cool, the stand is surprisingly sturdy. The PS2 will not shake within the stand.....It will move with the stand since it is held pretty tightly...It's worth buying....Let me put it this way, if you're planning on buying a stand, buy the vertical stand...

5.0 out of 5 stars It stands the PS2 vertically... it does its job January 10, 2001
At first I thought that getting the vertical stand for the PS2 would be hazardous for its health. What could possibly be worse than making the poor system top heavy? Well, I got the stand anyways, just because I'm so pressed for room in my dorm room and would need it anyways. Fearfully I put the PS2 into the stand as indicated, with the rubber feet nesting snugly into the stand's notched spaces. I was amazed at how stable the stand was. Of course, it's pretty easy to knock over accidentally, but it's not gonna fall over on it's own. And admittedly, yes, it does look pretty cool (I actually think the PS2 looks hideous horizontally), but the vertical stand makes it look something like a miniature Dell Poweredge Server of sorts. If you've noticed, the CD tray on the PS2 has a slotted side. Before getting the PS2, I figured they would handle its vertical capability by putting in a locking spindle like many laptops have, but that would get annoying (hard to pull CDs out). But Sony's design allows you to just pluck down the CD and it'll stay on the tray. I guess the PS2 is just more at home vertically. Also, I have witnessed some skipping from the PS2 on DVDs, but this was in both the vertical and horizontal orientation, so I attribute that to a system problem and not a stand problem.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fashion statement that serves a purpose March 6, 2001
One of the biggest joys about the PS2 when it first came out was that you can stand the system vertically in addition to the *normal* horizontal position. The system looks like a brilliant work of art when it's standing in the vertical position. I've always loved the design of the PS2 and thought that it would work well in both the horizontal and vertical positions, but after seeing this sleek, black baby sitting upright with the vertical stand, I don't think I'll ever put it back down.
The PS2 will in fact stand vertically on its own without the stand, but it adds a great deal of stability to the system. Without it, the system is very prone to tipping over. The PS2 is a precious piece of equipment, so the idea of having the system knocked over numerous times isn't a pretty picture. Also, the laser in most DVD players is very precise and can easily get unaligned. Plus, without the stand, the PS2 looks, well, kinda stupid.
The only problem with this thing is that it's quite overpriced, but so are all of the PS2 peripherals. And you can buy other third-party stands which hold games and DVD movies as well, but they just don't look as pretty. In fact, some of them look downright ugly. If you have any plans on having the PS2 stand in the vertical position, the vertical stand a must-have piece of plastic. That is, if you have any sort of a sense for fashion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, and adds a few extra things January 20, 2001
Verified Purchase
Personally I too am against Rudy Sharp's review. He obviously just doesn't take good care of his PS2-ROMs. I have tried out this stand and, to tell the truth, I beleive it is BETTER for your games than when your PS2 is sitting flat. Plus, (this is for you rudy) the Playstation 2 is made so the discs CAN'T be scratched even when the system sits vertical. Take a look at a picture of a PS2 and it shows on the drive that there is a tiny edge along the drive that balances the disks and spins them on a part that has not been recorded on. Oh, sorry. I went off topic. Anyways, this is the coolest stand out there. It even supplies the Playstation 2 with optimum cooling, so your PS2 won't overheat nearly as quick. This is highly recommended, and I hope you will spend the extra money for this. Plus it makes the PS2 take up less space. Great.

5.0 out of 5 stars I bought my vertical stand for 2 reasons: January 27, 2001
Verified Purchase
A) A PS2 sitting in the vertical stand is one of the coolest looking things known to man. (It's a lot sturdier and more well made than it looks in photos, too.)

B) Besides being space-economical and pleasing to the eye, it's part of a great tongue-in-cheek inside joke from Ken Kutaragi, designer of the PSX and PS2: The very first model of the original PSX manufactured back in 1994/1995 had a tendency to overheat, and this would warp some of the plastic parts in the disc drive. Thusly the laser would sometimes get a little out of alignment and have problems reading disc data, and many PSX owners found that putting the unit on its side would alleviate the problem. And so, with a wink and a nudge, we have the PS2 vertical stand.

This is great and makes the ps2 look a lot cooler. But it is a little overpriced. It should be like 5 to 10 dollars.
