Have you run out of USB ports on your new Macbook? Or bought a fancy new system only to find you have just one of two USB Type-C sockets? These are the common issues we face now that technology has gone on a diet. When we're faced with smaller form factors, slim cases and compact sizes, the first thing we miss is the versatility of the older generation.
With this USB 3.1 Type-C interface compatible hub, you get the best of a fast 3-Port USB 3.0 Hub, plus a Gigabit USB to Ethernet Adapter in the one handy device. Enjoy blazing fast access to all your USB 3.0 portable hard drives and flash drives, plus access to all your older USB 2.0 (or even USB 1.1) accessories including printers, cameras and more.
More than just a USB Hub, you also get a full size Ethernet port for Gigabit access to your router or modem via regular cat5 or cat6 RJ45 network cable. This allows you to skip the WiFi shenanigans and copy files across your network at full speed, even if you're rocking 1000Base-T hardware. Great for those pesky wireless connection errors, low speeds or annoying drop-outs. You can even use it as a second network card to access different networks simultaneously.
This device is plug and play on most systems including Windows XP to Win 10. We have also included a driver download for Mac OS X.
Features & Specifications
Please note: Because a single USB port on the computer/laptop is being used to access all connected peripherals, simultaneous use of high-load devices will reduce your overall data bandwidth for each device. For example: copying files from multiple attached hard drives or memory sticks will slow your transfer rate considerably. Likewise, simultaneous use of high-powered peripherals may reduce the available current. For example, charging multiple iPads at once will slow the charge rate on all devices.
