Unlike Apple, the USB-C PD port is not on the same side as the HDMI and USB-A port. So regarding cable management, Apple’s Multiport Adapter is neater. But because of this design, this hub has a much smaller design footprint.

Specifications are identical. It has a USB-A port, HDMI port that supports up to 4K (3840×2160) displays at 30Hz, and a USB-C PD port.

Build quality of this hub is much better than Apple. The enclosure is made of precision-milled aluminum, and it has two colors (Space Grey and Silver) to match the design of your USB-C MacBook Pro.

Price wise, it is just slightly cheaper due to the flat shipping fee of US$15. If you are buying multiple units and splitting the fixed shipping cost with your friends, it is much cheaper.

I got it at 20% discount because of the coupon code, 9to5mac, from 9to5mac.com [15].

I bought it together with the HyperDrive 7-in-2 Hub for USB-C [16].

So if you factor in the 20% discount code and splitting the shipping cost for two products, I paid (US$49.99 * 0.8) + (US$15 * 0.5) = US$47.49 (S$66) for it.
