NZXT, today announces their newest iteration of their internal USB hub.

All of this gives builders the confidence that they will have enough Internal USB ports on their motherboards for components such as the NZXT Kraken Z53, NZXT RGB and Fan Controller, and NZXT E850 Digital PSU.

where they get no signal? genius these adaptors are sandwhiched between the mobo tray and the back panel 99% of the time, the internal port made no sense... and the height of them made actually plugging something in there incredibly unlikely too.

There are some products NZXT ones itself which come with mini USB port so you could connect it directly using Usb cable or have a small Linux installation on pendrive and not have it hanging off either front or rear IO panel.

That depends on the case. A side window doesn't do much to block radio frequencies.
It's also useful for adding a water pump or flow meter etc, if you're liquid cooling inclined
