Iomega Mac Companion USB2/Firewire
Fast. Integrated USB hub for iOS device charging and syncing.
Includes integrated USB 2,0 hub, drive capacity indicator, USB charge-sync port, Fits under iMac and Apple displays.
Stylish, wellmade, fast transfer rates
A perfect fit for owners of iMacs and Mac displays. Fast and quiet. Sync and charge port on the side makes it easy to juice up your Apple mobiles. Choose between FireWire 400/800 and USB 2.0, with all the cables included. Doubles as a USB hub when connect
Weird iPad charging issue. Expensive.
No USB 3,0 ports, FireWire and USB cannot be used simultaneously.
Cheaper options available
Pricey — you pay for the design and the USB extras. “Sync and charge” port is fickle, doesn’t always want to sync even though it was always ready to charge. Loses both USB hub and sync/charge port when connected over FireWire. LED
