While I am a regular Fedora Linux and Windows 10 user, I also want to be proficient in macOS. And so, last year, I bought a MacBook Pro. This is my first-ever laptop from Apple, and so far, I love it. The problem, however, is that it only has USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ports. For the most part, this is fine — I rarely connect things physically in 2017. When I do have a need to connect a Type-A USB flash drive or HDMI monitor, however, I must turn to dongles.
There are an overwhelming number of USB-C dongles on the market nowadays, and today, SCOSCHE is delivering one more. Its all-new USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter isn’t the most advanced such hub, but it should meet the needs of many for an affordable price.
“SCOSCHE’s USB-C Hub features three ports, which each provide essential functions for new Type-C devices. One port is an HDMI connection that allows users to mirror the MacBook display to an HDMI-enabled TV or display up to 4K HD. Additionally, it outputs video content such as movies and captured video. Simply connect the adapter to the Type-C port of the MacBook or other USB-C device and then to a TV or projector via an HDMI cable,” says SCOSCHE.
The company further says, “The USB-C Hub also has a Type-A port, allowing users to connect older peripherals and computer accessories, such as flash drives and cameras, to the new Type-C MacBook. The Type-A port on the adapter also lets users charge and sync their iPhone, iPad or iPod. For added convenience, the third USB port on the adapter (USB-C) permits pass-through charging of MacBooks or other Type-C computers even when the other ports are in-use.”
There are more advanced such dongles on the market, offering more USB Type-A ports, Ethernet, and the ability to read storage cards. SCOSCHE takes things down to the minimum, however, only offering HDMI and a single Type-A for connectivity — the Type-C port is only for pass-through charging. If that is all you need, the $59 price is reasonable, especially when you factor in SCOSCHE’s reputation for quality products.
