Works, but just barely

By Ian
Rated 2 out of 5

Drives will connect but sometimes the dock cannot supply enough power to USB powered drives, which can shut off during data transfer. This is not something I would recommend to anyone looking to do data transfer on set

Problems connecting and poor/average design

By Miguel

I wanted to like this hardware because it is more appealing that having a dongle but unfortunately certain connections do not work well, for example if you are using a firewire adapter it will not connect. It used to snap securely into place, but the problem is that the designers did not include enough clearance between the bottom of the hub and the bottom of your laptop, in other words they made it very flush, so if you set up your laptop somewhere that is not perfectly flush there will be some pressure on the connectors. IMO they could have offset the bottom a bit.

The Port hub is very well built, the design is as sleek as the Mac itself and for what you're paying ! It's a hard add on to overlook.

Does what it says

I have a Macbook Pro Touch and have been wanting one of these for a while. I saw a B&H special and purchased one. I have to say, it is great. Compact so it doesn't add any additional weight, but sturdy to do the job. I have used it for all of the attachments and Does what it says. I recommend it highly.

All okay except for the Ethernet port

It was connected to MacBook Air and no problem with the monitor display and USB ports. However if you attached an Ethernet cable, it is very hard to pull it out. Though I managed to remove the cable, it almost destroyed the flap that covers it. I don't advise using this device if you want to hardwire your laptop to Internet.

Works well
