I hadn't seen that before, I like it. About $90 after shipping though.

I have a USB hub stuck to the bottom right side of my iMac with a little double sided tape, ports facing forward. Not as sexy, but works well, about $10.

I picked up a 7 port usb hub from walmart for $20, and have almost all my external crap plugged into that. It sits on a shelf that's easily accessible.

I would never want USB devices in front of my keyboard and iMac like that, so it's a no for me. (I dislike that level of clutter.) But to each their own.

It would be handy if you used a lot of USB keys throughout the day, but plugging in more permanent peripherals (printer, scanner, etc.) would suck (I recognize you could potentially still use the rear ports on the iMac itself for those).

Something like this:

F5U307-WHT Belkin USB 2.0 Plus Hub (7 Port)

Has rear-facing ports for extra devices that don't often get disconnected and provided a couple of ports on the top to make using USB keys easier.

How many ports to you need? This one has four... and it travels in time!

I'm with you on that one too Lars, that was my first reaction to seeing the photo of it, that I would spend too much time trying to untangle cables to get my keyboard out.

+3 USB hubs are great, I couldn't be with out one. I have a 7 port Belkin, but it is pushed to the back of my desk, I still have easy access to it but the cables all hang of the back making the cable clutter minimal.
