Hello! There's no deadline, once we reach 5 people I'll order ASAP.

Right now we are short of 1.

@gary92 check your PM!

@kennylwf, since gary posted first, I'll let him have priority, if anybody backs out I'll contact you!

Will order once I receive 3 more payments. After I order hopefully it should take 2 weeks + to deliver.

I just got mine a couple of weeks ago. This is truly godsend! Now I can use all my legacy devices and transfer files from different storage devices.

In short, the build quality of this dongle is pretty decent. I appreciate how the color of the dongle matches the color of your laptop nicely. Although the aluminium finish is slightly different between the dongle and Macbook Pro. I guess you cant really compete with the quality of Apple's aluminium unibody finish. It is always top notch.

I also like how the thickness of the dongle matches nicely with the overall thickness of the MacBook Pro, so its neither higher or lower. When connected on the left side of the laptop, it looks like an extension of the laptop and doesnt look hideous at all.

A nice bonus is that the Hyperdrive comes with a small, black soft pleather carrying case to safely store your dongle when you bring it out with you.

The number of ports is decent in my opinion and it comes with power passthrough. The power passthrough only works on the first USB-C port, not the second one (versus both when connecting directly to the laptop, allowing you to charge on either of the ports on the side)

I have not tried the HDMI connection yet.

One thing to take note is that it is relatively easy to pull out the dongle from the twin USB-C connection. So becareful when you yank out any legacy USB devices as you might also accidentally pull out the whole dongle out as well. Connecting to both USB-C ports doesnt ensure tight fittings.

If you only need USB 3.0 (classic port) and USB C passthrough, Lazada have plenty of the generic units from $12 onwards
