The Space Bar is a clever idea badly crippled by old USB technology. It offers USB 1.1 (as I recall), which is painfully slow with respect to transferring files and synchronizing iPods. The current standard is 3.0. I note that the product is not currently available on the maker's web site, suggesting that a rebuild/update of the electronics may be in process.

Great Accessory for Deskoholics
I bought this to slide my keyboard under my monitor. The four USB ports are a plus and I now can see my flash drives. I always forgot them when I plugged them in elsewhere in the computer. Lights too bright? I stuck iPhone Button stickers over the lights. They now have a soft glow and a cool custom look. This is priced high but I won't mind giving one as a gift for my friend. She really liked it and good friends are worth more then money.

Setup took just a few minutes. Standard Mac keyboard fits fine under the monitor. Really worked to clear the clutter on my desk.

Not loving it
Keyboard doesn't fit - my own fault as I didn't measure and thought FOR SURE my keyboard would fit. It's ergonomic, so a bit bigger than most I guess. Since keyboard wouldn't go under, tried to slide my laptop under and would only have to undo 1 plug when packing up for the day - laptop doesn't fit under it either. Height is off by about 1/2 inch. So, this did nothing that I purchased it for. Wish it was a little taller. USB ports don't benefit me like I thought they would, wish it had port to plug monitor directly into.
