Compact USB-C to USB 3.1 Works Great!

By: macphoto1970_091 - 09/23/2018
This is a pretty simple device but I have to say I like it. I think that this product was well though out. Anyone who have just USB-C will love this hub. The device is small and I like the layout of the USB-3.1 the two plus two design works better then in a strip. I think the hub has a good weight to it which helps to keep it stable when multiple devices are plugged in. Overall this item works and the design is good. I would highly recommend this item I received this item in exchange for an unbiased review.

Nice product, portable and easy! Working great for us. It is handy especially if you are short of USB ports already connected to docking stations and other devices. It gives flexibility to add more devices to work better. Overall a great product !

Small, Fast, and convenient

By: Nick_146 - 11/19/2018
OK, first of all, the TOP USB ports are really great on the go. Second, it worked in Linux, MacOS, and Windows without any extra hoop-jumping. And MOST importantly: It is FAST. I connected 4 different kinds of devices and all performed at full speed. Obviously the hub itself is rated faster than USB-3, but, I was hopeful that 4 USB-3 devices at once would mean all would be quick, and I was not disappointed. Only thing to note, is that there's no option for extra power, so if your device can't cough up the electrons, and a connected USB3 device draws too much, it just won't work. Trivial overall unless you use heavy power devices. For thumb drives, average pocket-sized mobile HDD's, SSDs, cameras, etc. this thing just works, and it works well. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.
