Nowadays, new laptops are getting thinner and more portable at the expense of losing many of their USB-A ports, HDMI ports, and SD card ports.
I searched extensively for a reasonably priced USB hub for my laptop and for desktop computer – and after doing a few minutes of research, I decided on this USB hub because of its Price, Size, and Functionality.
This device has all of the most common ports that most people use:
• 3x USB 3.0 ports – (for faster data transfer).
Since it’s USB 3.0 - it is fast (up to 5 Gbps transfer speed) and backwards compatible with 2.0 and lower USB devices too.
I haven’t noticed any connection drops or any other problems!
• 1x HDMI port – (in case you need it to connect a second display) – I didn't really have a use for it as of now.
• 1x SD slot – to import data from the memory card from your camera/recorder etc.
• 1x TF card (microSD card) slot – in case if you don’t have an SD adapter for microSD.
I have only tested this product with microSD cards, not SD cards.
Using two different microSD cards with different speeds (SanDisk Extreme Pro 128GB microSDXC and Samsung EVO Select 128GB microSDXC) – I transferred 8GB of data and each of these transfers were extremely fast.
Obviously, the different card speeds displayed different times – however each were completed within minutes (whereas usually I would have started the transfer and got up to do something else).
ⓘ This Hub will NOT charge your devices! It is designed for Sync / Data transfer ONLY.
👉 I have been using this product for almost 4 months and everything is working perfectly fine.
✔ Fast data transfer
✔ Made of solid material
✔ Lightweight / Portable / Travel-friendly
(I will update if I find anything on continuous use)
