Satechi is well known for rolling out accessories for computers as well as mobile devices for many a year now, so much so that they have gotten extremely good at it. In fact, many of Satechi’s past releases have always managed to successfully maintain the general design flow of the product or brand that it is supposed to work with, and the same applies to the all new Aluminum Type-C Clamp Hub that has been exclusively designed for the new 2017 iMac Pro, iMac Retina 4K and 27-inch 5K models.
This particular hub will add functionality to the iMac with a data only USB-C port, a trio of USB 3.0 ports with up to 5Gb/s for fast and secure data transfer, and a Micro/SD card reader. The best part of all? This is achievable all through a solitary USB-C connection, now how about that? In other words, you gain a whole lot more connectivity simply be “sacrificing” a single USB-C port, providing convenient access to any Mac user’s most-loved ports and devices.
What we like about the Aluminum Type-C Clamp Hub is also the fact that it is extremely easy and simple to set up. All that one needs to do is to plug it into one of the iMac’s Thunderbolt 3 ports and use the adjustable knob in order to fasten the hub to the bottom of your desktop computer. From there, you are good to go since there is no need for any kind of additional drivers or installation required. It will extend ports to the front of the iMac, ensuring that everything else is within reach while providing convenient access to peripheral devices at all times. The versatility of the hub frees up valuable desk space, while looking great in its sleek, brushed aluminum finish that certainly complements Apple accessories.
Expect the Satechi Aluminum Type-C Clamp Hub Pro to ship in the first week of January 2018 in silver or space gray with an asking price of $49.99 a pop.
