What’s the USB-C Hub like to use?
There’s so much on offer with this Hub, it’s where to begin. We have power delivery through a USB C port. 4K & 2K video on the HDMI socket. The three 5 Gbps USB 3.0 ports, one SD card slot and one Micro SD/TF card slot. All from being connected to a single USB-C port.
This enables you to mirror or extend your computers display on any HDMI-enabled devices (monitors, projectors, HDTVs and other devices with HDMI ports), the video resolution up to 3840 X 2160 @60HZ, and is compatible with 1920 X 1080 HD resolution too. I took advantage of this socket to connect my TV as a second monitor, it worked great with no visible difference from the main computer screen.
Using my WD 4TB Drive in one of the USB 3 sockets, i was delighted with the speed achieved. I use this drive as a Time Machine, storing constant backups of my data throughout the day at hourly intervals. It worked seamlessly, just as it usually does.
I used a Micro SD card, from my FiiO X3 Music Player, to transfer some music through the New Hub and i’ve got to admit it was no slower than doing it directly to the Music Player itself. This is because the files are so large, i love my lossless music, so they are all in 24 bit 192 kHz form.
I tested the power delivery system of the USB-C socket with another 7 in 1 USB-C Hub. Using an RJ45 cable to get my network connected (it was a different make of Hub with an Ethernet socket on it). It worked perfectly and i was able to achieve 195Mb/s of my usual 200Mb/s i get from my ISP.
This is an excellent Hub! I am delighted with it’s performance. It’s an excellent quality product. Solidly built, great value for money, very versatile, easy to use and worth every penny. There were no downsides for me, i couldn’t find anything at all wrong. Therefore, it must get 5 out of 5.
