MacBook Pro already has three Thunderbolt 4/USB-C ports, an HDMI port, and an SD card reader, so you're really spendig $80 to get back the two Thunderbolt 4/USB-C ports this is blocking (not to mention the loss of the 3.5mm jack), two USB-A ports and a microSD card reader. What a deal! ?

I'm increasingly bewildered by the persistence of new hubs with USB-A ports. I haven't bought an A device since… 2016? Aren't we all caught up by now?
I believe that nearly every computer, shy of Macs and the Dell XPS line, still ship with USB-A. Every peripheral I've purchased over the past few years have had a USB-A cable. FWIW.

Some day, I will find all of those people that have a requirement for microSD card readers everywhere.

Still looking...
You mean anyone with a Drone, Action cam, Cell phone, CCTV systems, Media player, TV Set-top box, Dashcam, or handheld console?

GoPros, Drones, 3D Printer config/file transfer. All of these things happen in our house.

You can end your bewilderment by stopping by your local Best Buy. Go in to the computer section and count how many computer accessories they stock that come with USB-C connector. Wireless keyboards and mice? NOPE. Printers? NOPE. Scanners? NOPE. Webcams? UNLIKELY any, but maybe a couple higher end models might. USB speakers? NOPE. Backup batteries? NOPE. USB flash drives? There are literally one or two brands that do USB-C. The vast majority are USB-A. That's just to name a few categories of accessories.

Now, YOU may not use accessories (or buy ONLY Apple peripherals designed for MacBooks), but the rest of the world still buys accessories and not many come with USB-C.
