With so many USB-C multiport adapters on the market these days, I’ll be honest, it can be hard to get excited about new models. I mean, look, dongles all work pretty much the same way, right? The adapter turns a single USB-C port into multiple useful ports.
Today, however, Satechi has a new such product that caught my eye. Called “USB-4 Multiport Adapter with 2.5G Ethernet”, the exciting thing is in the name – you get multi-gig Ethernet. Of course, many similar adapters provide gigabit Ethernet, but the 2.5G offering here is rather special.
“With six dedicated ports, the Multiport Adapter is the only device needed for work or play. Labeled ports are easily accessible with 2.5G Ethernet, 8K HDMI, two USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 10Gbps — with one supporting charging PD (protocol 2.0 and higher), USB-A data up to 10Gbps and an audio jack port.Whether for work, streaming or gaming, Satechi’s new adapter is the optimal peripheral to complete n any workplace setup, whether at home or on the go,” says Satechi.
The company adds, “While using the new multiport adapter with direct HDMI connection to compatible host devices, users can enjoy stunning ultra-high resolution 8K HDMI output to their display with up to 60Hz refresh rate. Users will also benefit from a high speed and reliable connection up to 2.5 Gbps with the enhanced Ethernet capability that is backwards compatible with 10/100/1000 Mbps. Featuring next-generation USB-4 technology, the adapter provides enhanced bandwidth for video and data, fast transfer rates up to 40Gbps, and backwards compatibility with Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C devices.
The USB-4 Multiport Adapter with 2.5G Ethernet can be purchased directly from Satechi here now. The company is asking $149.99, which is a bit pricey. However, for a limited time, you can use the code USB4 to save 20%! You should act quickly though, as the coupon will expire at the end of September.
