Satechi USC-Clamp Hub

Cool Hub that puts makes key ports available

Last Fall, I installed a Satechi USC-Clamp Hub on my new iMac Computer. This is a cool mini-hub that puts a bunch of ports on the front of your iMac.

Satechi USC-Clamp Hub connected to my iMac.

You get:

  • 3 USB 3.0 Ports
  • Micro Card Reader
  • SD Card Reader
  • USB-C Port

Plug and Play

It was easy to attach this to the computer and easy to remove if needed. There's no software to install, simply connect the USB-C cable and then tighten the clamp to secure the hub.

Things I Learned

  • Quick Install, really easy to do. Once installed you don't have to worry about it. I have moved my computer around plenty of times in the past 6-months and the clamp has never come off.
  • Very handy to connect/disconnect thumb drives
  • When inserting a Micro Card the card has to be upside down, which seems weird.
  • There's a small light to let you know it's connected. It's very tiny and doesn't distract me when I am working with the lights down low.
  • I don't have many USC-C devices, so I haven't had the need to use that port. The nice thing is that you don't lose the port on the back since it's in the front.
  • The look and feel seems very natural - doesn't look out of place.

Want One?

It cost $49.99 on Amazon.com. (Non-Affiliate Link!) According to Camel Camel Camel that's been the same price for about a year. For some unknown reason, it dropped to $34.87 for a day last July.

I would recommend anyone getting this for their computer. This also makes a great gift for that Macintosh User who seems to have everything. Note: It only works on the latest iMacs.
