I think this is very cool. It is not that it has not been done before in various ways. This one seems to have that extra to it. I wish they would have added or used USB 3 which would make this unique in itself as well. Either way though I like it as it is considerably smaller than the norm which would make it great for quite a few things I could think of. I also see something like this as a more functional replacement for a KVM switch. To add to this I would not have to switch buttons or dials as being a USB solution it would automatically detect usage.
It's functional and a clean design. And it's affordable as well. I like it too.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Nice little device.
These kind of things have basically become obsolete for laptops tho... Most laptops these days already have all of those connections built in. It does offer a small bit of convenience if you have a lot pf peripherals. You wont have to unplug and plug in a lot of stuff. Just 1 usb.
I can definitely see this as being useful for a netbook, umd, or maybe even a slate computer? They tend not to have a lot of space for that many connectors.

Perfect for your puny little netbook.
Once USB 3.0 comes out, we should see docking stations with much more capabilities.
