This is my review for the USB C Charging/Data Hub, Type C input to 4 * USB 3.0 and 1 * USB C PD Port for New MacBook/iMac Computers. By dodocool. An FBA item @ £18.99 as on 03/08/2017
The item arrived quickly and was well packaged, most of which was able to be recycled.
So, what do we get?
A USB-C Hub c/w 1 x USB-C PD port at the end and 4 USB 3.0 Data ports along one side. It has a cable length of 200mm.
What is this Charging/Data Hub like to use?
With a reversible USB-C connectors, you can connect it to a USB-C device using the cable, or the socket. It’s plug and play, so there’s no extra driver required.
The power delivery function enables you to charge your Apple MacBook via the USB-C female port, while using the USB 3.0 ports for data transfer.
The USB 3.0 ports give you data transfer speeds of up to 5Gbps. It’s also compatible with USB 2.0/USB 1.1.
You can connect up to four USB devices such as your digital camera, flash drive, smartphone or tablet at the same time and have no lag in speed.
This compact and lightweight aluminium hub is a great idea for making your desk look neat and tidy.
I love it’s triangular shape. The colour Gold is a great match with Apples Gold range of products. The fact that the casting itself, is made of Aluminium makes it really sturdy. Personally though, i would have liked to see 4 rubber on the underside of the Hub to prevent scratching to it or the surface it is sitting upon.
I have tried this with a Wi-Fi and Ethernet connection and with loads of differing combinations of ports configurations. It works perfectly every time and the data throughput is in line with what you would expect from the ports in question.
This is a well made product at a reasonable price. It is easy to use and very handy to have around.
I can’t find anything negative to say about this item it works well and seems to be very reliable.
It deserves the full 5*’s
