    Cool. The idea of having something you can plug in an internal drive and work as USB hub is nothing new of course, I have two such devices myself, but this is the first time that I know of which has a M.2 drive and HDMI.
    Cool.

    i'm not a fan of hubs. Thus i opted for a NVME m.2 usb C (3.2) hot swap reader. Paying $100 for the tool certainly isn't as cheap as the usb 3.x sata 5 inch and 3.5 inch docks which the decent toaster often runs you about $40
