    Yea, But that not the price I bought it for. Just Google the part number and there are cheaper places to buy it from. I just gave you the link to the manufacturer site to get the specs

    Those all look good, I guess it just boils down to price and appearance. I really like the Kensington one, and the price is right, but I do not like the way it looks at all. I wanted something a little more streamlined.

    I might just wait and see what I can find here. I'm about 10 posts short of being able to start a WTB thread in the marketplace.

    i looked at the Kensington one too, but i didn't like all the ports being forward facing. Amazon and CompUSA both have a huge selection. again i can let you know about the one i just ordered when i get it this weekend

    That would be great, any input is helpful.

    Seeing as this is my 100th post, I am heading over the the marketplace to see what I can find!
