Satechi is famous for its range of accessories that intends to make life a whole lot easier and convenient where technology is involved. This time around, the beneficiaries would be the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro models, thanks to the introduction of the Satechi Type-C Pro Hub. This spanking new hub can be said to be the perfect accessory for all road warriors who are rocking to the latest model of the MacBook Pro, as it offers the solution of additional functionality by including missing ports that were previously found on the new MacBook Pro’s predecessor, all without sacrificing on aesthetics thanks to its slim design.
Those who pick up the Type-C Pro Hub from Satechi will find it arrive with a Thunderbolt 3 port that allows for pass-through charging, for both 13” (61W) and 15” (87W) MacBook Pro models, in addition to quick data transfer with speeds up to 40Gbps — doing so without having to sacrifice the usage of any other port. The 4k HDMI port lets one connect an HDMI cable from the Type-C Pro Hub to output crisp, 1080p high-resolution video at 60Hz to external 4k monitor screens.
As for the additional USB-C port, it will also be able to expand data transfer capabilities with speeds up to 5Gbps, while a pair of USB 3.0 ports provides users with the freedom to transfer data from non-Type-C peripherals with speeds up to 5Gbps. Last but not least, the SD/Micro memory card reader is perfect for video and photo editing work, since the card reader slots deliver data transfer speeds up to 104MB/s. This plug and play peripheral comes in a sleek and compact brushed aluminum design, where $99.99 will let you choose from either Silver or Space Gray colors.
