    I would like to wall mount my TC, but would like to know if that would cause any problems short or long term to the internal hard drive. Also, would it have any effect on the quality or range of the wireless capabilities? Finally, any suggestions on how to mount it to the wall?

    Thanks, Mike

    Hi iTiki,

    Depending on how you mount it - you might even get better reception (believe it or not).

    And no, there shouldn't be in adverse side effects.

    There is even a product to do it:

    That wall mount is ridiculous expensive, just get some double sided tape from Home Depot and stick on on there. :cool:

    Yes it is :D

    Had to pay over the odds to get the H-Squared mount here in UK but it worked great and looks the business as photo

    The mount is located in my hall and is precision made and top quality, the TC runs cool, Wireless range is very good all over the house

    My office is upstairs and I have no reception problems even in the back garden its good, installation was easy and my TC is now out of the way,

    With it in this position the TC's Green status light illuminates the wall at night and looks really cool

    I wanted to mount my wife's MacMini underneath her desk. I considered some of the specialty products designed for this, but figured it was a waste of money since it would be out of sight.

    I ended up buying some angle brackets and bending them so they would hold it in place, I initially planned to use 4 of them, but found it was so snug with three I didn't bother to install the fourth (the two on the right are attached to a stud).

    This probably wouldn't suffice for those who want to mount a TC (or Mini) where it would be visible, but it can be an excellent and affordable choice if you'll be mounting out of sight.
