Inateck USB 3.0 Hub is a metallic multifunctional Type-C portable hub which can extend the Type C port on your laptop/tablet. My husband has been looking out for this type of hub to enable him to mirror his smartphone to a projector or TV. This is bang up-to-date as it’s capable of streaming 4K UHD video to HDTV, monitor or projector to extend screen!
This is cased in aluminium and is very well constructed and lightweight. I like that this is so small that you can have it in your bag to use it on the move. Also this is instant plug and play and because it is hard wired, there is no break in signal! We’ve tried other casting devices that work over Wi-Fi but we’ve had problems with it the signal breaking up or it simply not respond.
It has five ports: 2 USB A 3.0 ports, 1 HDMI port, 1 SD and 1 Micro SD port. It is very handy especially when your laptop only has a few ports! Some of the ultra-portable laptops these days have few ports so this would be particularly handy. The two USB 3.0 ports support up to 5 Gbps transfer speed!
On the instructions, it does mention to not connect two or more high-consuming devices simultaneously, especially two portable hard drives. It is something you have to be careful not to do it.
This Inateck USB 3.0 hub is compatible with Windows 10, Mac OS X, android and no drivers needed. It is available to buy from Amazon. For more information about this hub, please visit the Inateck website. This is not the first time we have used Inateck, as we have been using the Hub HB5001 for charging gadgets and the IPX5 Water Resistant Speaker in our shower for more than three years!
