    Flawless performance, worth every penny

    It was brand new product, with zero reviews on this site or anywhere on the internet, and also a little bit pricey, Hence I was hesitant to buy, but went with my instincts and J5create reputation on other products. I received it within less than 2 days. High quality workmanship, properly tested device and reliability, are pretty important to me. Yes, there are some cheaper products, but hardly any meeting my criteria. In my line of profession, time is of premium - effort to order something, and then returning, is an overhead for which I can least afford. I received it well before stated time, and it met all my criteria - including high quality finish and it works flawlessly. It is worth every penny and I would highly recommend this to anyone sharing my criteria.

    What a disappointment

    I paid $100 for this device because I purchased a new Macbook and needed the things that this product offered...more USB-C ports, USB port, SD card reader, etc. I used it for 33 days and it stopped working properly. It "flickers" back and forth between my connected and disconnected. Nothing about it is consistent. I used it on a flat surface only just as instructed and it still didn't last. I tried contacting the company to see what could be done, but they are not terribly interested in helping. They wanted me to jump through hoops to get a replacement. Save your money.

    Works as expected!

    Product works as expected! I especially like that it has a charger pass-through. Great for those devices with a single port that is also used for charging. The only potentially negative that I've found is heat buildup after prolonged use of the HDMI link. My gf fell asleep watching Netflix and the next morning the adapter was noticeable hot to the touch. (I should note that the laptop it was connected to was not playing video the entire time. At some point in the night Netflix timed out to a blank screen. The screen wasn't "off" per-se, just blank. You could still see the glow of the led screen.)

    Hard to connect, runs hot but works

    Based on the positive reviews, I thought this was a guaranteed success. However, it failed to connect to three of my four MBP USB C ports. Finally connected on one and has been running good so far. Runs very hot. When I get home, I will check with an infrared thermometer. Considering the issues I've had so far, I can't recommend this for the price I paid.

    It Does the Trick

    It is a cool peripheral. It has usb 2 and 3 ports, HDMI, and an SD card reader. My only real complaint is this thing GETS CRAZY HOT. Just having it plugged into my Macbook gets this thing hot. I ended up buying some heat sinks online and that kind of does the trick to keep it from melting my desk.

    I thought about buying a cheaper version of a similar product, but this product had everything I needed. Laptops seems to be getting less and less ports on them each day, I am glad a company like J5CREATE is producing such quality pieces. Plugged it right in and worked great! 4th J5CREATE product, would buy more in the future without hesitation! Great company to deal with.

    The only problem I found so far is the unit has tendency to heat. I keep it plugged all day long for the Ethernet wire connection and a second screen (laptop + one on HDMI). When too hot, it reboots. But other than that, it's working great and is worth the investment.

    This is a real jewel for the TabS3 from Samsung. It allows me to connect my tablet to my internet using Cat5. This improves the speed of the downloads and reduces the buffering when watching videos. The device allows for a charger to connect to the device to passively charge the tablet during use. I have not used the HDMI feature yet.

    Machine I use this with alerts it needs 45W, only gets 37W from this. Gets very warm when in use for only an hour. But provides access to the external devices I need it to. Cross check what your device needs but this is great otherwise.

    With the new MACs being designed as they are; without, peripheral attachments, you got to use multi tools, this multi-tool does the trick. Though it runs a little warm, it does the job well. Cost wise it is right within my wallets range, yours too for that matter.

    Great adapter to have to connect to my new apple computer. From connecting my monitor, SD cards, flash drive and so much more. My only concern is how warm it gets while in use. But it conitinously works for hours with out any cliches.

    Although the first one of these I bought broke and stop working after just three months, I bought this one again because I didn’t have time to research other alternatives.

    I have a surface go (smaller Microsoft pro). I use it specifically for work. With this device it gave me every connection I needed. HDMI, 3 USBs and ethernet port.

    This one seems better than the other option. You don’t have to be super-careful how you have it hooked up. Won’t bend/break like the other more expensive model.

    When I purchased my new MacBook Pro, I needed to be able to plug my USB flash drives in. This is perfect for this and other connection ports!

    Plug & Play works good. It does get pretty hot sometimes not sure if that is something I should be concerned with or not. Other then that works great.

    Have you ever noticed that laptops these days don’t ever seem to have enough USB ports? This device is the best!! No more shortage of USBs. I love it.

    Works fine but I keep getting messages on my laptop that it may use more energy than laptop can provide and sometimes the device is not recognized.

    I got this to hook up my phone and tablet to our TV. It works great and you can plug the power via USB-C to keep your device from draining while you're watching.

    I hate that apple makes us buy all these adapters to work with our current tech products, but oh well. This works well and I haven't had any problems.
