This unit has the typical Monoprice beautiful and well-designed appearance. I love everything about it except the USB ports, which are too tight. After destroying the plug on a tiny keepsake Christmas tree while trying to extract it from one of the ports, I spent some time with a heavy duty plug and silicone spray. After perhaps 50 insertions and extractions, the ports loosened enough that I can use them routinely, but they probably never will function smoothly. I'm disappointed, but too big a Monoprice fan to be upset.
