I thought about something JUST like this that would look nice with the iMac, but allow the ports to be placed in front for much easier access.I had everything but the glowing blue light! They cut the price. I don't know. I guess if you're a major iPod, digital camera, iMovie/camcorder, etc. user (and have the money to spare), why not?It's not like it's ugly or uncool. And it actually improves upon what I consider to be a less-than-smart design on Apple's part.I know WHY Apple did the "ports in back thing" (looks much nicer), but it sure is a pain in the butt!Buy it!

USB has problems because of the way it is designed to need CPU regulation of speeds, f/w was designed to not even need a computer at all...besides if you have problems i'm sure you can return it, or you could just plug the camera directly into the computer bypassing the hub, but i doubt you will have problems Reply 4 of 4 kesh Posts: 621member December 29, 2002 4:40PM These have not shipped as of yet, but we're eagerly awaiting them at my store. I think they'll do well. Sign In or Register to comment.
