I can tell the Startech put a lot of effort in the details when they were designing this. The hub does feel high quality. Other than how it looks, the hub works perfectly with all the ports. I have no complaints so far. The type c port supports up to 100W so that it charges my Macbook pretty quickly.

This is the Swiss army knife of adapters. The USB-C multiport adapter features both an HDMI and VGA port providing you with two single video output options for your boardroom presentations or your workstation setup including support for an ultra-wide monitor. 

With support for USB PD 3.0 (up to 100W), the USB Type-C multiport adapter can power and charge your laptop, and power your peripherals when connected to a USB-C power adapter. You can use your laptop’s charger to power the hub and power or charge your laptop simultaneously.

There is one USB-C port (power & data) and two USB-A ports to connect your latest and legacy USB devices. Also, the multiport adapter provides direct access to your: 

  • SD, SDHC™ and SDXC™ memory cards or microSD cards via the SD card slot 
  • Audio content via headphones or microphone through the 3.5mm 4- position audio port 
  • Ethernet network via the GbE port using a hard-wired connection  

The USB 3.0 Ports transfers at a rate of 5Gbps and 4.5W (5V/900mA) Power output. When testing with an SD card, files transferred across with no issues.

The HDMI 4K Adapter let me mirror or extend the display of the laptop/phone to my TV, monitor or projector in up to 4K UHD (3840×2160@30Hz) resolution. I was happy to see this also works with Dex on my S10+.

The hub is crafted from sleek aluminium and a tempered glass panel. Along the bottom is a rubberised non-slip mat, meaning that it sticks in place on my desk. There is an LED indicator light on the bottom. Allowing you to see at a glance the status of the hub.

Overall, The Startech USB-C Multiport Adapter is lightweight and slim. This makes it simple to take with your on-the-go. Ideal for business trips, office, home, and game.
