Tag: USB Type-C HUB
The biggest “problem” that Apple users have had bought a MacBook or a MacBook Pro has been removing USB 3.0. These have been replaced by USB-C that in addition to being smaller, allow a higher transfer speed. The buyers (among whom I meet) have had to make us with new cables or look for adapters to be able to connect our devices or pen drives. Today I bring the one that for me is the best Hub they sell for the MacBook Pro, the QacQoc GN28A (there is also a version for MacBook).
As I said, QacQoc is the best option to return to the MacBook Pro what you have removed, two pendrive 3.0 and the SD card port, and without losing the USB-C serial. Looking at the Apple page I could find a USB-C to USB adapter for 25 euros and a USB-C adapter to USB and HDMI for 75 euros, which makes an extra total expenditure of 100 euros. This Hub has a price that round the 50 euros, although it lacks the HDMI you can find cables in Amazon for less than 20 euros. 100 Euros Front 70, okay don’t you think?, especially if you think you’re not going to be loading with giant cable adapters and you’re just going to wear a small, stylish hub.
In addition to the lack of HDMI, the worst thing about this Hub is that one of the USB-C ports can only be used for charging. There’s still three USB-C’s left.
The Hub can be purchased in two colors, depending on the one that has your MacBook Pro and connects to the USB-C inputs on the left side. The design is very careful, when you connect it almost seems to belong to the computer itself.
The packaging is not left behind, coming in a recycled cardboard box next to a leather case and a small “user manual”. If you need fewer ports, there is a more economical but just as efficient version.
