I purchased this, because aesthetically it matches my new Mac Pro. Also, the 10 ports is about right - it seemed perfect. Using it, however, was another thing. Every time I plug the thing in to a computer, it brings the whole thing down - instantly. Prevents a boot if the computer is down, and if you plug it in when the computer is up, it takes the computer down. And no, it's not a fluke; I bought two of these, and both cause the same problem.
