    I use a milk crate. Built in ventilation, and the color of the plastic complements the LEDs on my mixer.

    Here’s my $6 stand  – I used a strip of aluminum, some nuts, bolts, and self-adhesive silicon rubber.  Works great!

    I agree with Jester, last ones deffo the best. Can see a lot of hardwork and thought has gone into this. lmao

    I made this Laptopstand by myself. My Dj partner and I have both external Storages so we can combine our musiclibraries more esily at the Party. These HDDs are getting cooled by the two fans(which are of cours turning the same way, so that there is a continous airstream). I will creat a DI-Box in the stand with XLR- as well as RCA-Outputs.

    This article is so homeless… Your laptop can be set on things? no way brah!

  • Genjutsushi

    This is one of the best setups ive seen in a while

    Pelican cases rule!

  • Genjutsushi

    Ive got one of the NUMARK ones to stack up some of my sound modules that arent 19″ rackmountable. Its perfect for that purpose but ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE for holding a laptop – far too unstable. One touch and the thing is rocking for minutes at a time. Its like a coiled spring.

    AVOID the NUMARK LAPTOP STAND!!!

    I do a gig a bar/restaurant where I spin with other DJs. There’s no room for my laptop stand so I’ve found the perfect place to put my laptop…on the baby high chair.

    It’s solid, free standing, and at a decent height.

    Ahhh the comment section, filled with so much hate nowadays. It used to be such a lovely place, even more intresting than articles themselves many times.

    Translation: go hate somewhere else.

    lool last dude have stolen my stand. Guess I have to settle with my 12 pcs. beer crate :-)

    I like to use to old PS2′s stacked on top of each other, but that’s only for home use.

    Shoebox stand is where its at – im currently only using Shoebox Version 1 though… need to find another box.

  • Guest

    Wow DJTT…
    GREAT post.

  • Windz

    Isn’t available in until Oct. This one from NAMM looks REALLY good (Although it looks heavy as sh!t).

    Also looks like the arms are adjustable as well, so you can add a small controller (LPD8, Nano Pad/Kontrol, Denon DNHC1000S) at the front of it. 

  • ManDingo

    Hell yeah, for the shoe box stand!!!Grab that stand at Foot Locker. That’s the way to do it, use what you got!!!

    • Jerrya

      He prob spent nothing on that stand while everyone else is spending money and making things pretty with all these colors, lights and fluff. When he’s done with them he can just toss them in the recycle bin. But the milk crate is the shit!!!!

    You guys forgot the all too common milk crate

    I used the last one !!!

      right?! :) 

    • jezalenko

      Yep, I use this one too. Rock solid and cheap as! =D

      • Devonleroux

        cheap? yes, rock solid? maybe not

  • Intoxicatedninja

    The PVC one could work pretty well for smaller, less professional, gigs. But if it were up to me I would probably spray it down to some cooler colors. It wouldn’t even look like PVC pipes at all.

    The Tripod is a little strange, probably might take up a bit of room even. But it does look sturdy and doesn’t look like complete trash lol.

    Everything else look blehh…

  • voetsch

    LMFAO, just a few minutes ago i thought of making my own laptop stand and when i come to my favourite site I see that awesome article. 
    Love you big time guys

    • voetsch

      Well, the stands are not that good looking, but what am I at a technical college for?

        Jump to it then!

  • faleads

    I still don’t get this. Just shell out the fvckin $30 for an L-stand.

    Sad that all of these look really ugly. Isn’t there something self-made that’s a bit more stylish?

    • Buffalo Ill

      Damn – my original post got separated from the post it related to!  

      I like the idea of cheap stands.  There are far better things to spend your hard earned on than laptop stands (Although I’ve got an Uberstand, and a Millenium Stand, AND a Griffin elevator!)

      Wish I had the 370 I spent on the Uberstand so that I could get an MPD!!!

  • http://twitter.com/Ampero Arthol Gibson

    I’m really considering getting one of the last one featured. I saw them in a store the other day. And by store I mean back-alley

  • Dannysaguilar

    Lame.

    • Ogama8

      Why?

  • Mud

    These are fine for home use, but djing is also a performance.  If you got duct tape and pvc holding your stuff together you aren’t representing yourself too well.  Unless, of course that’s your aesthetic. 

    • T’CharleS

      True, though I usually have duct tape holding some of my cables in place anyway (because I don’t want a usb cable getting loose for example)
