    Works well, looks like a native Apple accessory

    Got this for a new MacBook Pro 15, and I use every single port. My old MBP had a built-in SD-card reader, but I still needed an Ethernet to Thunderbolt adapter. This one does it all (except that I could always use more USB 3.0 ports). NOTE: sometimes USB-C is not recognized until I unplug and re-plug the adapter. That clears it up, but was never an issue with my previous USB ports-and-hubs. It does run fairly hot, but I draw a lot of power and have run it with a Focrusrite Scarlett 2i2 which sends phantom power to microphones. Never had a problem keeping the MBP fully charged, and both data and internet speeds are very good. The build quality looks as good or better than any of my native Apple accessories.

    Multi ports for devices lacking ports

    I recently purchased a Lenovo 920 2 in 1 device which, in comparison to my old 2009 MacBook, it is way thinner, lighter and multi functional. What I've gained in efficiency, I've lost in ports which is understandable. Enter the 7-Port Type C Hub. You plug it into the USB Type-C and you have added 7 additional ports to your device, including one USB-C powered port so you can charge a device. It's well made and definitely a must have for those of us attaching sd cards, Ethernet cables, and additional USB cables to our systems. I can't speak for how this would work with any of the current MacBooks with USB-Type C ports but I would imagine it would be seamless. Solid construction and seems to be well made so I think it will last a long time.

    DID NOT WORK FOR WHAT I NEEDED IT FOR

    Bought a new MacBook pro. It no longer had a USB 3.0 port, but had the Type-C. I had several items with the USB 3.0. I need this so I could use them. The one item I needed it most for was my Apple Superdrive (CD rom drive). I was told by a store associate that this would allow me to use my superdrive. It did not. I went back to the store and a different associate told me to run power to the adaptor using the laptop power cord. I tried that and that did not work. I then googled and found out I could use a much cheaper adaptor. I paid $69 for this.. I returned this item and bought the single for $4.99, and it worked. This product could be OK, it just didn't run my superdrive, which is what I needed to do.

    Low Priced Multi-adapter That Works

    There isn't a whole lot that needs to be said about this device. It has ports for most everything you could need that is absent from say, your MacBook Pro. It has an ethernet port, HDMI port, two USB 3.0 ports, micro SD card port, standard SD card port, and a USB-C port. It has done everything I've asked of it with the exception of allowing me to hook up a MIDI keyboard. I can live with that because it has saved me a considerable amount of money with its versatility and all-in-one construction. Apple equivalents would have cost substantially more and I would have a mess of adapters to contend with instead of just the one.

    So far so good one month in... Seamless Plug n play USB hub!!! All functions working on Samsung Note 9 activates Samsung DeX. USB 3.0 Working with portable hard drives, keyboards, mouse, pendrives. Throughput fast charging. Flexible 4 inch cable with small USB-c connector allows plugins without removing phone case... I tried several others including the original DeX Pad to no satisfaction... Package does not state support for Android, Samsung, or phones... However this one works as described above.

    This unit works very well. It can plug in multiple devices without blinking an eye. The ability to plug in an external power supply is also exceptional. Not one of the cheapy low power power supplies either. I'm talking a power supply that will run multiple dvd roms with hard drives all at the same time as well as charge your device. I currently am using it for my galaxy note 9. Even with the android market missing some drivers for different devices, this unit is very useful and very durable with the metal case. Worth buying.

    An Apple DVD Drive would not operate with this.

    It does work to connect a camera memory card, and other non-Apple devices with the USB ports. But, I had to buy an Apple dongle to be able to operate the Apple DVD drive I had bought. That drive will not work when connected with this adapter. Frankly, I don't think the salesman should have told me this is what he recommended when he was selling me the computer and DVD drive. He should have known it would not work.

    I was looking for an all in one hub and this was perfect so that I didn't have to deal with multiple dongles. I even did my research., looked up reviews and what people were saying, and it sounded too good to be true. I was wrong. Not even three weeks in and two of the ports do not function any longer. Tried it multiple ways and still no luck.

    No drivers needed

    This device works as advertised. Similar devices I noticed people complained about driver issues. All ports on this device worked without any drivers needing to be downloaded. My only complaint is that the charging port on this doesn't rapid charge. It's enough to keep power supplied to the laptop (Mine is the new Lenovo Yoga Book 2018) but not enough to charge it at a fast rate.

    Good add-on for your 2019 Mac with Type-c ports

    This hub works as expected. Good option for adding some needed ports to any device that uses the newer Type-c ports such as the 2018/2019 Macbook Pro. The connecting cable is very short so it kind of hangs from your Mac laptop when you hold the laptop on your lap. I would have preferred a slightly longer cable to allow the hub to lay flat near your work space.

    I am not sure if it’s something I did but it did not work for my needs Connect up to seven devices to your computer through a single USB Type-C port with this Insignia™ hub, featuring two USB 3.0 ports that support data transfer rates up to 5 Gbps, one USB Type-C port with Power Delivery, Ethernet port, HDMI port and two memory card readers.

    Good adaptor

    The adapter has multiple ports which is great, but when plugging in some devices, such as the CD drive, it doesn't read the drive. Luckily I had a USB-C port converter on hand that i could plug the drive more directly into the laptop. Otherwise I've been able to use multiple ports at a time without much problems.

    Good product but not the best design

    It's a good product with the right input/output options but has a very poor design. It has the shortest cable to connect from your computer to a flat surface. They could have added a few inches to give you some mobility and flexibility. I contemplated returning it if I find a longer cable but yet to find one.

    I purchased this HUB to connect my Dell XPS15-9575 laptop to my 4K monitor. My laptop runs OpenSUSE Linux. I tried other usb-c HUBs but could not get 4K video to work. Plugged this HUB in, and it works perfectly. Previously had installed the EVDI driver and the DisplayLink drive.

    This adapter works great on my Note 9 for using Samsung Dex. The extra connectivity in the form of two usb ports, memory card reader, hdmi port, and gigabit wired networking makes business work so much easier to get up and go. And the type C power port keeps the phone charged up.

    I tried a more expensive adapter that mounts on the side of my Laptop and would not fit when using a protective cover and just came loose on its own. This Dongle adapter is just about half the price and is much more dependable and forgiving of any movement in the position of the laptop.

    I've yet to have an issue with this Insignia macbook adapter. Although I'm not very happy apple has gone away from having usb 2.0 and SD slots etc on the actual laptop, this adapter isn't too much of a hassle to use. It does what it needs to, fast, reliable, just as good as any others.

    It was a reasonable price. Has lots of multifunction ports that are terrific but the micro-sd slot is worthless. It doesn't even really keep the card in. Never has worked period. All the other ports seem to work though. Don't buy if you need it for the micro

    Got a new MacBook Air which only has two “C” type USB ports. All my other usb devices have older port connections. The Air charges through a USB port. It has no card slots, no hdmi slot, no Ethernet slot. This device is a must for a MacBook Air laptop.

    My company got me a new MacBook Pro, but they weren't aware it only had 2 c style ports. It's great, I have it connected to the internet via ethernet and a wireless USB mouse.
