Why is VGA included on these things? I see one person above mentioned that they need VGA still. Personally, I don't think I've had to touch a VGA connection in nearly a decade.

So, I'm definitely an n=1 situation, but in what cases do people still need to use VGA these days?

In my experience Satechi hubs come in handy because if you ever get hungry you can always fry an egg on their hub cases...

Why is VGA included on these things?
Mainly because some people have to give presentations in meeting rooms and auditoriums that still have ancient VGA-driven data projectors (which you don't find out until you turn up). Probably a few other niche uses out there, too.

Lucky you.
Feel free to buy an adapter that doesn't have VGA.

People making fun of the VGA haven’t really worked anywhere corporate lol. They’re still wildly popular for whatever reason
I still have beautiful 24"+ LCD monitors that accept VGA. The 2 main reasons the corporate world still use VGA in addition to other formats:

1)The VGA cable has 2 screws to secure it in place. This is often critical for machines connected to projectors and/or rollaway carts.

2)VGA has high enough resolution (1080p) for all your business stuff projected on the wall...Powerpoint, a web browser, etc. If they need to push higher resolution, yes, they purchase a higher rez projector that accepts higher inputs.

Up until a few years ago, a)quality, brand name projectors still cost over $1000, b)higher-than-1080p was a LOT more expensive (even today over $700), c)corporate doesn't buy new projectors "just because" and d)corporate probably replaced projectors every 6+ years or only when they break.

Another reason for VGA (my belief) is that VGA simply works. It always works. True plug and play. HDMI and other technologies are very often glitchy and cranky...gotta be the right cable certification...the digital technology is doing much more vetting of the handshake between the video card and the projector...checking for pirated (gasp!) content, etc. VGA is also extremely reliable for KVM switches...they just work. I've tried numerous non-VGA KVM switches at home and they're always flaky so I don't use them.

Remember, the corporate world is always allowing employees, visitors, and vendors to give demonstrations using the projector mounted on the ceiling or table. What they don't know is the computer's technology that's going to plug into it...so VGA still reins supreme.

Just got mine. Cost me 37$ in duties on top of the price (from USA to Canada). The item itself is total junk. The hdmi port is intermittent (just touching the thing makes the display go black then back. Same cable works fine with other adapters). For some reason, my external spinning hard drive won't work with this. (even with ONLY the HD attached to it). Oh, and the SD card reader is hit and miss. I have to insert and remove 2-3 times to get it to read it (again, same works fine in other adapters/other macs).

Total piece of junk. I bought this ONLY because Macrumors recommended it and I was tired of chinese junk that don't work. Total sham. I've been fooled. I'll never trust a Macrumors recommendation again.

I bought this for $26 on Amazon in 2019.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07DC25FHC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

And here's the current version for $39 which adds Gigabit ethernet.

Unless you need VGA (LOL) you can save a ton of money and buy something else. The big advantage the Satechi has is the detachable USB C cable - nice to choose the length, but then you also have to be careful about using a compatible USB C cable.
