QICENT 10 Port USB Hub review

The 10 port USB hub from QICENT is pretty self-explanatory.  After receiving this sample to review, the particular model that I received is no longer available for sale on Amazon or anywhere else that I could find for that matter.  Other offerings from QICENT are similar and can be found on Amazon but this particular model seems to have disappeared. 

New Satechi Type-C Pro Hub for 13″ and 15″ MacBook Pros offers connectivity in a slim package

I recently sold my 13″ MacBook Pro to a friend at work after having purchased a refurbed 12″ MacBook. You might think that’s a step in the wrong direction going from the powerful MBP to a slower MB. But I absolutely love the MB because it’s small, lightweight, and does everything I need in a …

IOGEAR USB-C Ultra-Slim Dual Display Docking Station review

Recently Julie and I both purchased 12″ MacBooks and while extremely light and portable, the sleek and slim laptop is lacking in ports to say the least. That is a known “design feature” and for me, really is not an issue when on the move. But there are definitely moments where going port-less is a bit of an inconvenience. …

SCOSCHE introduces new USB-C hub with AV features

Some newer laptops like Apple’s latest MacBook Pro use a USB-C port for both charging and connecting to accessories. But without USB TYPE-A connectors (which I guess is what we’re supposed to call the “old” style USB 2.0 and 3.0 connectors), how do you charge your iPhone, Nexus 6P or other USB-A devices? SCOSCHE comes …

Ventev S500 desktop charging hub review

One of the drawbacks to having a gadget addiction is the resulting clutter.

EasyAcc H70 7-port USB 3.0 hub review

I recently purchased a 1993 Midwest Micro Elite notebook off of eBay.  It boots to BIOS but that’s about it.  I just wanted to own my very first “real” laptop computer again…I sold it off on the comp.sys.laptops USENET group back around 1995 and kind of regretted it ever since.  It has a serial port, …

Satechi Aluminum Premium 4-Port USB Clamp Hub review

I’ll admit up front: this review will be short. After all, it’s a USB hub. How exciting can that be? Well … the Satechi Aluminum Premium 4-Port USB Clamp Hub is at least interesting.

Add a USB 3.0 hub for your iMac right where you need it

I used several iMacs over the years until I decided to downsize to a MacBook. I still love the iMac for its style and gorgeous display, but I’ve always questioned Apple’s choice to locate the USB ports on the back side of the computer. I understand that they want to preserve the clean lines and …
