As standard, the cheapest 24-inch iMac has two Thunderbolt/USB 4 ports on the back. On higher configuration versions, there will be an additional pair of USB 3 ports on the side. However, unlike older iMac models with Intel chips, the new 24-inch iMac doesn’t have an SD card slot.
HyperDrive 5-in-1 and HyperDrive 6-in-1 look like a solution to this problem. It connects via one of the USB Type-C ports on the back and packs a few extras.
5-in-1 design with two USB-C ports (5Gbps), two USB-A ports (5Gbps) and a single USB-A (5Gbps) supporting 7.5W charging. Meanwhile, the 6-in-1 version with USB-C (10Gbps), USB-A (10Gbps) and USB-A (10Gbps) supports 7.5W charging. There’s also an HDMI port with 4K/60Hz support, a UHS-I SD reader, and a UHS-I microSD reader.
While for many people the current number of USB-C ports may suffice, Hyper’s design clearly offers a number of advantages. The most obvious is the ergonomic design, which allows it to attach to the bottom edge of the 24-inch iMac with ease. This is a smart design because it will not take up too much space and streamlines the desk.
Of course, you can easily adjust the tightness when clamping on the monitor via a simple knob on the back.
Hyper says that the body of the hub is lined with rubber pads to prevent scratching or damaging the iMac. That means you don’t need tools to attach or remove it, simply turn the knob to tighten or loosen the device.
The product has an option of 7 protective covers so you can combine them with different colors of the iMac 24. Currently, both the 5-in-1 and 6-in-1 hub versions are on sale for 49 respectively. .99 USD (1.13 million VND) and 79.99 USD (1.8 million VND).
