We’ve already seen that Satechi can pack ten USB 3.0 ports into a single hub, so seven ports at the same price may not immediately seem like that great of a deal. But if you care about looks, you might be excited about the company’s new 7 Port USB 3.0 Premium Aluminum Hub ($70). It takes style cues from the earlier four-port version, using an angled silver aluminum design with black accents—a perfect match for your favorite Mac.
Satechi has all seven USB ports in a row along the face of the hub. Thankfully, the company didn’t play games with the ports: all seven are USB 3.0. Not surprisingly given the demands of a hub like this, a separate power source is required and included.
