Make every effort to solve your doubt
+ Does this thing block the air flow since it appears to cover the vents on the bo
1. I haven't noticed that it does. I'm very happy with this item.
2. The iMac has about 12 vents, and this blocks two. I've noticed no increase in operating temperate, and I monitor for that.
3. Please don’t worry about it. It's designed in a way so that only a small portion of the vent is blocked, the part that is inserted doesn't take up the whole vent. Also, the top face of the Hub is not flush with the iMac so there is still room for circulation.
+ Does it work with the latest 2015 5K iMac model?
1. I purchased my IMac from Best Buy and it works fine. The SD card slot is shallower than most slots but it works great 5 out of 5
2. Yes work very well
3. Yes it does, source= I have a 2015 5k Imac
+ air flow?
This is an additional USB port. It does not produce air. It has one USB plug that goes into a port and creates 3 plus memory card readers. Excellent for computers that lack the much needed additional ports.
