Satechi Multiport 4

REVIEW – A few days ago while I was working on rearranging equipment on my desktop to make things neater, I was amazed at how many accessories I have and how many I swap because I am either short on docks or I am using docks that lack enough ports or the variety of ports that I need. The bottom line is that I am always looking for great docks and am intrigued by this Satechi USB-C Multiport Adapter 8K dock.

The Satechi USB-C Multiport Adapter 8K works well with every accessory I attached. I especially like that it includes an SD card reader since I use SD cards a lot and never had a dock that included this type of port along with 10GB and 5GB USB ports. I also like that it has an ethernet port and a HDMI port. The USB-C Power Delivery port is a bonus. The dock works well with the monitors I tested. I do not have an 8K monitor so I could not test that capability.
