Windows PC users move along: nothing to see here. You already have all the connectivity you need. MacBook users though, stick around: you’ll be interested in this. In the world of Apple, less is more, and MacBook users have to find ways to get their peripherals and cables connected via external means because Apple cheaped-out on ports themselves. Fortunately, Kanex has come to save the day with their new Kanex multiport hubs that feature blazing-fast USB-C connections, ethernet ports, and card readers. Join us after the break for more details.
While many of the peripherals we use these days are wireless affairs, there are still a fair few accessories creators use which require a wired connection. If you’re a MacBook Pro or MacBook Air user, this can quickly become a problem. This is where multiport hubs come into play. Kanex has a few models to choose from: the Kanex 5-in-1 multiport hub, 7-in-1 multiport adapter, and the 7-in-1 hub with an ethernet port.
The Kanex 5-in-1 multiport hub features a USB-C connector so you can charge and expand the port options on your Mac while you work. It also features an SD and Micro SD card reader, and two USB 3.0 ports which have transfer speeds of up to 10 Gbps. The 5-in-1 hub from Kanex is priced at $59.95.
The 7-in-1 version of the Kanex multiport hubs features two USB 3.0 ports that have the same 10 Gbps transfer speeds as the 5-in-1 hub. It has an SD and Micro SD card reader, an HDMI out port that can transfer a 4K signal to your TV or external computer monitor, and of course, the USB-C power connector. The 7-in-1 is priced at $79.95. If you want to take things one step further, you can get the 7-in-1 Kanex with an Ethernet port, and everything else that the regular 7-in-1 hub has, for $99.95.
