Well for Christmas my lil Sis got me a stand for my Wii. I wasn't too excited about it at first since I already had a stand I bought from Nintendo that came with 2 gloves. But I was wrong, this thing is pretty cool. First off, it's powered by USB. Plugs into the back of the Wii and the connector has a USB extension on its back so you don't lose a USB slot. Secondly, it has a cool blue light that goes all the way around the clear base (blue light matches the slot light). There is a switch to turn the light on/off on the back, its also powered by the same USB connection. The light is only on when the Wii is on, but it stays on unless you flip the switch in the back. The stand holds 1 wiimote and 1 nunchuk per side. All in all it's a pretty nice stand, and gives a little extra cooling. Plus it has a nice blue light around it. I would say this is a stand worth buying! EDIT: Worth mentioning the blue light around the base of the stand does stay on in standby mode. I wasn't sure about this because when I first plugged it in I was over a friends house and it didn't light up in off position. (But off is different from standby) aparently in standby it can still draw power from the USB connector on the back. So if you want a blue light on all the time this is a bonus, if not there is a switch to turn off the light on the back of the base.
