  1. The price ($90) for the device doesn’t make any sense. Especially taking the ports down to USB 3.0 I just don’t get it.

  2. Thanks for this video. Hence, you mentioned about build quality at rubber foot exposes. What if you rotate the unit 90 degree. So all usb will be connected from side. To access sockets from front is more handy than side. But also better not to be struggle with mess of cables in front of keyboard. It seems also can hide anying rubber foot too. Could you reply me with photo if you rotate it? How it look with all usb stuffed connected.

  3. Pretty, but hell it is useless, USB 3? what a waste, and why on earth did they put the ports right in front? it’s uncomfortable, just look at how annoying the headphone cable was right in the middle, if the ports were on the sides it would be perfect, the design is really good, but they should make it thunderbolt 3, put all the ports on the sides and add way more ports, hdmi, more usb c’s and usb a’s and more stuff, only then it’ll be in my radar.

  4. I use the Satechi hub that attaches to the right side of the Mac itself. To me that was a nicer solution because it looks like it’s a part of the iMac and the cables are all to the right of the machine (plus it’s cheaper). My main gripe with the Satechi hub that I use is it doesn’t have the headphone jack and the LED light is very bright and stays on all the time.

  5. Thanks for the great video again. I never used stands. I prefer monitor arms to get the best ergonomic. Of course, it depends on your usage. In my case I don’t need front connectors.
