I just got my VESA bracket for my 2012 imac, and hastily took some (terrible) shots when I got it mounted. It is a bummer that the stand cannot be removed, but for resale reasons there was no way I was buying the VESA equipped Imac. Having the stand on there is actually kind of nice, as it acts as a shelf for my DAC. With this setup I always can control my levels, for volume, and input. Also having the tilt up, and down is easier with this setup, then with my 2009, because the spring on the arm has to be cranked super tight to support these beasts. I needed the VESA as I use this as my kitchen/dining room/ and office nook computer. I cook elaborate dinners, and having the Imac as a TV is boss. Also being able to get in close for picture editing, is a plus. So far I am pretty happy with the bracket. I just figured I would Throw up a couple pics on the forums, since I couldn't find any before I ordered. Please forgive the dust I didn't have a chance to straighten up before the shots. The wires will be getting more organized once my usb 3 hub arrives.
