What customers say about "Features"
Kingston Nucleum 7-in-1 Type-C Adapter Hub Connect USB 3.0, 4K HDMI, SD and MicroSD Card
  • The power pass-through works like a charm. Highly recommend.
  • Having the extra USB port over the Samsung adapter is great as I don't need to carry an extra USB hub.
  • Love how there is a USB-A connection on BOTH sides, so no matter how your desk layout is arranged, you’ll always have USB facing you.
  • Having HDMI on the long end of the hub makes this an HDMI extension, which is much better than HDMI on the side of the hub.
  • Only complaint would be that the MicroSD is a little hard to push in.
Satechi ST-TCUHG 3 USB 3.0 Ports and Micro/SD Card Reader
  • Works perfectly and provides the mini-SD reader, as well as the regular size SD reader that I need.
  • Every port works as advertised and the build quality is very nice.
  • I just plug it into my laptop and slide in the SD card and it pops up so quick.
  • This was a great idea. Looks good and gives you extra ports. Make sure your particular Mac laptop has the new USB port.
  • The SD card reader has not worked for several months now.
